Reader Opinion: Life fulfilled through God
Memorizing Bible verses to throw at him like Jesus did when he was tempted in the wilderness. We must pray every day for Satan and his demons to be bound and rebuke them in every thing and every way. We must have faith so the more we talk to the lord in prayer and claim what the Bible...

Reader Opinion: Blessed new year
"But who do you say that I am?" Jesus asked. Matt. 16:15b. Before this Christmas season is a wrap, ask yourselves these questions: Who do you say Jesus is? Who is he in your heart of hearts? Who are you to Jesus? Friend, foe, follower, skeptic, uncommitted, uncertain, afraid of what...

Dear Heavenly Father, as we approach Thanksgiving, I have so many people and things to be grateful for this year. I am extremely grateful for the Bible. The Bible is a double-edged sword that we are able to use to pierce the darkness. I am grateful for your son, Jesus Christ, who...

A lot of people have pointed to Jesus' and God's word when it comes to the immigration policies of this country. Well, what would Jesus say about the illegal immigrants and the abortion issue? If you believe the Bible is true, then you would see that God (Jesus) condemns both of these...

Reader Opinion: We need God
It was the Fourth of July week and it's a tradition in our church to end the service with a patriotic song. This year it was "God Bless America." I could not help but think that we are such a nation of hypocrites sometimes, when we invoke God's help with our nation's problems but...
