by Stan Smith I live in the desert, and it has been a hot one here. One week we had temperatures near or beyond 120°F. They were grounding aircraft and warning everyone to stay indoors. So, there I was, walking the distance to my afternoon bus that would take me home ... in the heat. … Continue reading The Furnace
For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. -1 Timothy 6:7-8 Godliness with contentment is great wealth! (see 1 Tim. 6:6) So what does it take for us to be content? Paul reminds Timothy that … Continue reading For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

There she stood in the garden. She was beautiful, intelligent and confident. There was no need for a crusade for her rights. There was no need for a protest. She had no use for greed, she was the richest women to ever walk the earth. Everything in the garden has been entrusted to her and Adam. The enemy knew that faith and unhindered fellowship with God can’t be defeated. The Serpent is described as crafty and witty. The truth is he has to be. He dwells in darkness. Deceitful spirits especially The Father of Lies have no place in the light. It would be too easy to see clearly and expose him for what he is, a fraud.
The Serpent decides, “I must use what God said some how or call into question His Word. The man and the woman were given everything in the garden.” The fact is they can eat from any…

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”
And he (Jesus) said to him (the Pharisee), “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
Luke 22:36-40 ESV
Life in America.
We are so blessed to be living in this country.
But, sometimes living in America causes us to miss the greatest themes of the Bible.
I am a dreamer. I’ve always known this about myself. I am always looking ahead, envision, planning, and dreaming God dreams. If you join me for a long car ride, you’d find that I can spend hours in silence day dreaming about the future.
I want you to tap into your…

If a Christian finds himself doubting his beliefs and maybe for a while stops believing, is there any way for him to be saved and forgiven? Is it possible for such a person to regain his salvation, or can a period of disbelief never be forgiven by God? I do not believe that the Bible … Continue reading Times of Disbelief
By: Dr. Norman Geisler There is a new atheist’s ad out with a picture of Santa Claus and the words: “Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness sake.” This is clever, but is it possible? First, if there is no Moral Law Giver (God), then how can there be a moral law … Continue reading Can Atheists Justify Being Good Without God
by Maritza This is the first of a few blogs I will write where I will be unashamedly honest and vulnerable about my life journey these last few months… My life has taken an unexpected turn and twist and I didn’t see myself standing at this place in my life for this year. October 2016 … Continue reading Will you still be Mine?
For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. (Romans 1:20)
Relate: This picture is from the top of an old fire lookout on top of Mount Utsayantha. This is an historic lookout post from which a watch could be made over multiple small nearby towns. The fire tower stands at the top of the highest hill in the region from which you can see for miles and miles in every direction. I cannot begin to tell you how beautiful it is to look out from this tower in early autumn. There is no possible way a person can stand in that tower at the top of that mountain and be amazed by the breathtaking beauty of God’s creation.
