  • Teens Lured Into Sex Trade in the USA

    Teens Lured Into Sex Trade in the USA

    Matthew 18:6 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. The problems with human trafficking have been known to us mostly through news stories about other countries in recent years...especially third world countries. Because of that we here in the US and other first world countries have thought we were safe and this couldn't happen to our daughters. But it is....

  • THE DAY I WAS ALMOST FIRED FROM MY JOB...

    THE DAY I WAS ALMOST FIRED FROM MY JOB...

    Not long ago it was all over the news that Woolworth's Stores were all closing down here in the states. As I saw that announcement, all kinds of memories flashed in front of my eyes. My first job had been at the lunch counter at two different Woolworth's Stores. First at the downtown store in Knoxville, Tennessee, then at the brand new one that was built in a shopping center near my home. I really liked my job and was shocked when my Supervisor gave me the position of 'Night Manager' after a sho...

  • Bible Study Brief for Matthew 6:5-8

    Bible Study Brief for Matthew 6:5-8

    This passage comes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount at this point Jesus is giving teachings on proper living, such as how to give alms, how to fast; he is giving teachings on oaths, divorce, adultery, etc. At this point he gives a teaching on how to pray and in the verse after this passage a sample prayer. In this section, concerning how to carry out the commands of God, 6:1-18, Jesus makes comparisons. He compares how one should do something with how the hypocrites perform the same action. In the...

  • How do I become a Christian?

    How do I become a Christian?

    Becoming a Christian is one of the simplest and yet one of the hardest things that anyone can do. It is easy because God does not ask us to do anything. In fact, he even asks us not to do anything - only believe! Perhaps this is what makes it so hard - the fact that it is so easy. Why isn't Christianity like every other religion? Shouldn't we have to try to please God by improving our act? Shouldn't we, at the very least, have to go through some kind of ceremony or join a particular church? No...

  • THE CONVERSION OF DEVIL BILL JONES

    THE CONVERSION OF DEVIL BILL JONES

    I'm telling this story, passed down from my great-grandfather, the way he told it. (I love writing in Old Southern dialect. This is my fun way to write. The way folks used to talk.) Uncle Tom Barker was much of a man. He had been wild and reckless and feared not God nor regarded man, but one day at a camp meeting, while Bishop Gaston as shaking up the sinners and scorching them over the infernal pit, Tom got alarmed, and before the meeting was over he professed religion and became a ze...

  • Close, so very very close - Part 2

    Close, so very very close - Part 2

    This is a follow up to my previous article which was based around Matthew 24:6-10. I would suggest that if you haven't read that yet, please do so, as it forms the foundation of what is to follow. For those who did read it, as a reminder I would like to provide a brief summary. We are presently living in a time of intense war and strife. The past 100 years has seen this planet turned into one vast graveyard as a direct result of war, and compounding disasters in every land and continent. Matthew 24:...

  • Parable of the Talents

    Parable of the Talents

    Jesus teaches his disciples many things concerning the kingdom of God and sometimes he uses a parable, a story, to make his point. A parable is a short story meant to convey an important lesson and works to make the point by analogy, which draws a comparison between the story and the lesson in order to show a similarity in some respect between the two. Often times, Jesus doesn’t make the connection between the two for his students and expects them to work out the analogue themselves. One such parable...

  • Shiny and Bright

    Shiny and Bright

    My son bought a brand new pickup truck about 7 years ago as his 1st vehicle, and it was shiny and bright. And every day the sun shone, he’d be outside cleaning it, working to remove all the dirt, both inside and out. And he drove it to school when he was younger, and now drives it to work as he is older. And the truck has had its share of excitement, hitting a tree; another year hitting a deer; being hit by a lady while standing at a traffic light, but each time, the truck went into the shop to...

  • The Age Old Question about Killing

    The Age Old Question about Killing

    There is an age old question concerning the present day Christian who serves in any position that may require them to kill. So for all personnel who have, are presently or will serve in the military, we’re going to address this question. We have all heard that killing is wrong but when you really read the Bible in context, is killing wrong? God never said that killing is wrong. Sure, He’s our sovereign Lord and above reproach but He is not a God of, ‘do as I say, not as I do’ either. God has n...

  • I miss church…so very much!

    I miss church…so very much!

    It is Sunday morning, I arrive at the ex-pastor’s house. I bought a newspaper along the way. As I arrive, they are happy to see me and welcome me into their house with warm hearts and broad smiles. I take the sport section and hand the front-page section to the pastor (ex-pastor). He seems glad to receive the gift and immediately starts to read. As his wife leaves the room, he closes the paper and turns to me saying “you know - we should really be preparing our hearts for the service. Why don’t...

  • Another dream combined with more miracles
    by miepie
    This is the sequence to my previous article "Miracles and a dream". I had another dream a few nights ago. It was about Charles and I taking a day's trip on the train. We went all the way down south to see as much of the country as possible. Train cards are available at local stores that are less expensive in the summer and fall. Two people can then travel across the whole country cheaper than the price of a single fair from the train station in winter or spring. I also dreamed that we we...

  • Miracles and a dream
    by miepie
    Daddy gave me a dream. It was about the Pharisee and the man who smote his breast (Luke 18). He put me on the top of the Temple, and let me see them clearly. I asked questions and He answered me. It was so beautiful that I just enjoyed being up there. Daddy explained a lot to me and then I indulged those answers with hunger for more. I didn't understand why God gave me that opportunity until a few days later. While I was having a little argument with my husband, (happens in the best marriages too),...

  • How the Judges of Israel Overlapped
    by Cyberseeker
    The history of the Judges bridges the time from the Exodus to the Kingdom of Israel, however, when we sum up the rule of the Judges, a problem arises. Add them all up, plus the times of oppression such as the Midianite period of seven years, then tack on the forty years in the desert plus the reigns of Saul and David, and what do we get? 640! On face value, that's about 160 years longer than the Exodus to Solomon as stated in the official record of the Kings. (1 Kings 6:1) There is a reason. T...

  • Two spirits, one space
    by Senormac
    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from...

  • A time to pray
    by Graham Hickey
    Is it a time to pray?

    Very often as I journey through the day I hear of groups that are setting up against the Christian faith, or I see other faiths doing things really well. This screams out at me. As a Christian church these things can be missing in our worship and life, and perhaps through highlighting other faiths. Is God is trying to compel us to act? Jesus prayed before he started his earthly ministry (before he was baptised), and before he was arrested to be crucified. ...
