This Is The Story Of The Rabbis

9/24/2021
Toward the end of the first century, the last New Testament book as we know it today was written by the Apostle John as he was living in exile on the island of Patmos. But that didn't mean that the 27 books were ready to go to the printer. Not exactly. First, there was no printer at that time, and secondly, it took another two hundred years for the New Testament church to decide what was the New Testament. You think that it's tough for folks to agree on things today? It was even worse then!...

Discover The Evidence Behind The Bible

9/23/2021
Ignorance can be a wonderful thing. It saves you from having to think. Therefore, you avoid the consequences of facing what you don't know, right? Dead wrong! That lump that you thought was nothing was cancer, but you didn't really want to know and it didn't go away. When you could avoid the issue no longer, you faced serious consequences—all of which could have been avoided had you faced the issue head-on.

What You Can Learn From The Bible

9/22/2021
There are two kinds of people who are ignorant—those who have never had an opportunity to learn, and those who are willfully ignorant because they refuse to get the facts. There are millions of people in the world trapped by poverty and economic stagnation, who are ignorant because they have no choice, but the latter category includes some who have Ph.D.s and advanced degrees by the handful. Those who refuse the truth purposefully, are not only ignorant, they are to be pitied.

How To Stand Firm In Your Beliefs

9/21/2021
When the other person does it, you call it "lying," but when you tell the cop, "I know I wasn't speeding," you're just bending the truth a bit—good business, you know. When you falsified your resume when you applied for a job, inflating your salary for previous jobs and expanding your educational background (who is going to call the school and check on the years you were there?), you cloaked it in a term which has become widely used—misinformation. Besides, stretching the truth serves your...

How Lies And Deceit Impact Our Culture

9/20/2021
Check the dictionary and you will find this listing: "mis*in*for*ma*tion \, n. Untrue or incorrect information" (Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, 1996, 1998 MICRA Inc.). Formerly the practice was known as lying. But today the term misinformation is politically correct and less offensive than the cutting term which has been used for centuries. There are some who contend that there is no more lying today than ever before; however, it is just more sophisticated, more acceptable, and...

Start Creating Healthy Habits

9/17/2021
When an engine blew on the Airbus that United Airlines captain Ed Palacio was flying, the instrument panel lit up like a Christmas tree. "Ed," I later asked as we were talking about the incident, "What did you think about when this happened?' His reply: "I didn't have time to think. I instinctively did what I had been trained to do." His passengers were glad that Ed hadn't been sleeping in class when they covered those procedures. He was so well trained and disciplined; his reactions were...

What Does It Mean That God Is A Father?

9/16/2021
"It is a sad fact but it is true," writes John Nagle, "when people today hear of God being referred to as 'father' it often creates more mental barriers than open hearts. Unfortunately for more and more in our culture, the term 'Father' causes individuals to think of someone who was absent, abusive, addicted, or all of the above."

Here Are Signs That You Are A Christian

9/15/2021
Should Christians identify themselves by wearing gold crosses, or putting a fish on the bumper of their car? Are there some identifying marks by which you can be quite sure who is and who isn't? There are four marks of an authentic true Christian, which indicate quite clearly that you have become a follower of Jesus Christ. Those marks are commitment, conversion, confession and change.

What Does It Mean To Be A True Christian?

9/14/2021
Jesus laid it on the line with His followers. Unlike a lot of religious leaders today who temper their messages, thinking of their retirement benefits and the fact that their popularity with people who contribute to the church is very important, He never sugar-coated the Gospel.

What Does It Mean For God To Know Me?

Is it possible that an individual could go to church, put some money in the collection plate occasionally, even belong to a church, and yet be lost spiritually?

Why It Is Important To Listen To God Speak

9/10/2021
After his conversion Paul spent almost ten years of his life in obscurity--an absolute waste of time, so thought some. Think of what an exciting story Paul could have told. After all, how many people could top Paul's roadside encounter with Jesus Christ? Paul was blinded by a brilliant light. He literally heard the voice of Jesus Christ. It was for real, not something conjured up by indigestion in the night. Then, after he was led to Damascus his sight was restored supernaturally. An old...

6 Guidelines To Develop True Friendships

9/9/2021
"Dear Dr. Sala," writes a friend of Guidelines, "Every time I try to befriend someone of the opposite sex, they interpret my friendship as a romantic gesture. This really bothers me, and it is not my intention. Can't we just be friends?"

Discover The Ingredient To Real Friendship

9/8/2021
Truth is always stranger than fiction. Take, for example, the strange friendship of two young men who should have been bitter enemies. Instead, they became the closest of friends. One was raised in the palace of a king and knew the luxuries which are associated with that social status. The other was an uneducated youth who rose from obscurity and threatened to usurp the throne. Their names: David and Jonathan.

What Is A Friend?

9/7/2021
Psychologist Rollo May believes that most people make 500 to 2500 acquaintances every year--people you work with, individuals whom you meet at church or school, acquaintances with whom you share an elevator every work day, or who live in the same apartment complex as you. The checker at the grocery store, the gas station attendant, your mailman or doctor. You nod or wave politely when you meet these folks, but by no stretch of the imagination could most acquaintances be considered real...

How To Develop Quality Friendships

9/6/2021
In his book Quality Friendship, Gary Inrig tells about two friends who enlisted in the military, were sent overseas together, and fought alongside each other. During an enemy attack, one of the men was critically wounded and was unable to crawl back to the safety of the foxhole. The friend lay dying in a kind of no-man's land created by the crossfire of the two opposing sides.

6 Lessons To Be Learned From David

9/3/2021
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once wrote, “Lives of great men all remind us we can make our lives sublime, and departing leave behind us, footprints on the sands of time.” I think, should Longfellow yet be among us, he would agree that few men ever left more distinct and meaningful footprints on the sands of time than the son of Jesse, a Bethlehemite who lived some 3,000 years ago. What has been David’s mark of distinction? First it is readily agreed that David was unique. He had a great heart...

How To Learn From Your Failures

9/2/2021
The world remembers its own by their greatest achievement; they remember God's own by their greatest failure. That's the way it has been century after century. David, a man after God's own heart" was beloved and blessed under the most devastating of circumstances. Repeatedly Saul sought to kill him so his own son, Jonathan, David's best friend, could be king; nonetheless, God had a different plan but David's greatest failure left a blight on his career that demonstrated his humanity.

This Is What You Can Learn From The Life of David

9/1/2021
If you have the opportunity to visit Israel, I could wish nothing more exciting and fulfilling for you than to visit a little corner of the world where so much biblical history has taken place--the Jordan Valley. Jerusalem is 2700 feet above sea level, and the Dead Sea is 1200 feet below sea level. This means that in a matter of only a few hours you would descend going down a seismic fault.

Discover How David Faced The Giant

8/31/2021
Long ago, the poetic bard, William Shakespeare wrote, "There's a divinity that shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will!" The overview of history confirms what he wrote. The problem, however, is that we often forget our lessons from history, or the mistakes of others and make the same mistakes that our forebears made.

He is venerated by Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Mentioned 16 times in the Koran, the biography of this man is longer than the narrative of any other person in the Bible, including Jesus Christ whose biography was written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
