     | 4,816 views

    Many people believe Jesus for the things that He does. That’s not the kind of belief that Jesus is looking for.

    Several years ago a famous liberal named Norman Cousins wrote an editorial for a magazine called the Saturday Review. Understand that he was no friend to Christianity when he wrote this. But what he wrote was true and should convict us all. He wrote about a conversation he had on a trip to India ...read more

    How can these things be? That was the question Nicodemus asked Jesus in our passage today. Do you ever find yourself asking that question?

  • Holiness: The Hollow Inheritance Series

    Contributed by Peter Loughman on Jan 21, 2007
    based on 2 ratings
     | 1,254 views

    The God who we find in the Bible, is the God of real life, not the God of our imagined Disneyfied Happy Ending Life. Nasty, bad things happen in life. Being holy is not looking good, its dealing with life God’s way.

We who have been involved in the church for many years read this Scripture about holiness and we say to ourselves…I know all about that holiness stuff, we say…Holiness is literally God separating us from ...read more
