The Five C's of Christianity

Creation - Genesis 1:1 - “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” God was there before the beginning and He caused the beginning to begin. For all things to come into being. As such, He is the author of all and had authority over all (Ephesians 4:6). The creation is to point us to God, to know God, and to humble ourselves before God. He is the Creator. We are the creature. Command - Genesis 1:3; 2:16-17 - The Creator, having all authority, gives commands. Commands are not merely instructional but also directives. His voice is to be obeyed. In Genesis 1:3 God commanded there to be light and there was light. The voice of God has all authority. All Creation it to obey

Why NOT Homeschooling is a SIN

One may be surprised to find that in certain dictionaries there are over 20 definitions for the word school. The etymology of the word “school”, quite ironic considering today’s schools, was “leisure learning”. It was more learning through informal discussion. Soon there were designated “places” (ex. Acts 17:19-22) for this “leisurely” learning, and thus modern day schools were born. Nowadays, it is widely believed that “public schools” are the best, right, and only place for proper learning and development for a child. Unfortunately so many parents, even those that are Christians, have been fooled into believing the very same. But what are children taught at these public schools? In pu

A MARVELOUS FAITH!

There is faith, that as we observe individuals, we can classify. Some we may classify as having a “dead faith” while others a “living faith”. (James 2:26) We may say one is a “hero of faith” (Hebrews 11) or note a demonstration of “great” faith (Matthew 15:28). But to observe a marvelous faith is one of the most special and rare moments we can enjoy. This is a faith that because of its grandiose nature and sanctified character, simply leaves one MARVELING! We are blessed to observe that faith, as we read Lk. 7:1-10 and/or Mat. 8:5-13. The setting is Jesus Christ in His ministry of preaching the gospel and confirming the word through many signs and wonders. In Capernaum, a Centurion tel

"Life's Most Used Book"

Southwestern Bell Yellow Pages used a rather catchy slogan back in their heyday. Their tagline on all their billboards, radio, and television commercials was “Life’s Most Used Book” (This was back before Google and Facebook, etc.). It caught me by surprise the first time I ever heard it. When I got to thinking about it, I even began to take issue with it; I mean after all, the Bible should be life’s most used book. But then I was okay with their slogan when I thought more about the idea; because they are right! While the Bible SHOULD be life’s most used book, I’d venture to agree the yellow pages got much more “page time” (as FB does now). I mean really, the Bible isn’t even used at a l
