Matthew 5 and 6 present us with the Sermon on the Mount and the Lord’s Prayer. Both of these contain teachings that are not merely difficult but impossible: Cut off your hand in your fight against sin? Pluck out your eye too? Get right with others before giving your sacrifice on the altar? You’ll be answerable to the Sanhedrin? In danger of the fires of Hell? Don’t be like the Gentiles? Be perfect like God? Not forgiven unless you forgive… Read more

There’s a lot of talk in the Christian world today about generational curses. And some say that the sins of our ancestors can bring down curses upon us. Then they usually suggest a series of prayers or a process of “reclaiming spiritual territory” to break free from these generational curses. ​Is there any truth to these claims about generational curses?

James 1:14 says “but each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust [desires].” Does this mean that our own desires are all evil? And how would this jive with our new identity in Christ? Don’t we have a new, obedient heart full of godly desires? So what can James 1:14 really mean? This was David’s question when he emailed us. In this short video clip, I address David’s question about our desires. Read more

Katrina. Harvey. Irma. Maria. 9/11. Car bombs. Mass shootings. Whether it’s natural disasters or terrorism or other heinous acts, painful events occur every single day in this world. Is God somehow involved in these? If He is not the cause, then where is He in the midst of them? And what is His heart in these matters? These were Cheryl’s questions, and I address them in this short video clip. I hope this is an encouragement to you today in… Read more
