Let’s get right to the point. Is it God’s fault that twenty-six children died at the hands of a troubled young man? If God were a loving God, couldn’t He have stopped this from happening?
Every time a major crisis happens in the world, this question eventually comes up, especially among non-believers who struggle to understand the nature of God. What we need to understand is that God’s heart breaks when something like this happens.
The second thing that happens is we have a…Continue

Just returned from speaking at Harvard University April 1 and 2 with nine other Christian leaders. This invitation did not come from the faculty, but a group of students who have a vision to restore Harvard to its Christian roots.
While there was overwhelming positive reaction for those attending the conference, there was considerable controversy leading up to the event. Many in the gay and Muslim community believed that the speakers represented hatred toward gays…Continue

The calling of God on a life has many stages. We are drawn – but we must also draw to Him. We may experience a deep crisis of the soul to meet our Savior, or to begin a new stage of the journey. The journey is from head to heart. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them…Continue

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
If you are going to discover how God wants to use your life and work, you must know why you were created. If you start trying to determine your purpose in life before understanding why you were created, you will inevitably get hung up on the things you do as the basis for fulfillment in your life, which will only lead to…
