Why Do You Gather With The Church? In Hebrews Chapter 10, we are instructed to consider one another as we gather together. What does that mean and how does it actually play out?

SAL#59 Lions and Fires and Swords, Oh My!

Whether you go back to ancient Babylon or into modern day China, they've always been willing to literally be thrown into fires rather than deny the true and living God. Cloud Of Witnesses Because, as Christians, we have this rich heritage to look back on, we should be encouraged and emboldened to cast off our own sin and passionately live for Christ, as well. They serve as shining examples...

SAL#57 A Lamp For Our Feet And Light For Our Path

The Lamp For Our Feet Scripture claims to be a lamp producing light which shows us the way to go.

How Jesus Viewed Scripture Much of this episode is looking at how Jesus and the Disciples viewed Scripture. We look at how it shaped their lives and their apologetic. This, then, leads us into the...

Kesha Has A New Song Out It's called prayer and a Christian friend of mine posted it on social media the other day, praising Kesha and her expression.
