faith like a child

Have you ever wanted to have faith like a child? Some think this means that we don’t ask questions, and we must be content with being ignorant about the things of God. But this is NOT faith like a child. Having faith like a child means having the imagination like a child.

go vote and raise your voice

Christians must raise our voices for the causes we believe in, and one way (but not the only way!) we can do this in the United States is by going out to vote. If you don’t vote in elections, then don’t complain when elected officials behave badly. The question is not “To vote or not to vote.” The only real question is “For whom should I vote?”

Romans 8 flesh vs spirit

Romans 8:7-8 does not teach total depravity or total inability. In fact, Romans 8:7-8 is about believers, and how we should not walk according to the flesh. Paul wants believers to live life in the Spirit, free from the damaging and destructive power of sin in our lives.

It’s the White Man’s Fault! It’s the Black Man’s Fault!

dying for our enemies

Racial tensions are at an all time high. White people blame the black man, and black people blame the white man. But neither is at fault. I am the one at fault. It is not “they” who must die, but me.
