7 Tips For Christians Considering Fasting

Fasting is often one of the misunderstood and misapplied areas of Christianity. Everybody seems to have their own ideas about it, own way of interpreting Bible passages on it, and versions of how they should actually practice it as part of their faith. Apart from Christianity, many other faiths implement versions of fasting, too; so, it’s not just confusing within the Christian sphere, it’s confusing for many people. They may grasp the general idea and maybe even practice it, yet might not und … [Read more...]

How To Teach A Child To Memorize Bible Verses?

So-that-you-your

How can we help children commit to memory certain Bible verses? These same methods might also help adults do the very same thing. In a Song I believe one of the greatest ways to teach Scripture is using song. Songs have a way of imbedding themselves deep within the recesses of the mind. The notes tie in the lyrics or words into the melody and their memories retain it at a much higher rate than just rote memorization or reading and these biblically centered songs are still remembered and sung … [Read more...]

This change in Jesus’ teaching method puzzled His disciples, “And … [Read more...]

John the Baptist and America

We read in Matthew 3:1-3: “Now in those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” For this is the one referred to by Isaiah the prophet when he said, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make ready the way of the Lord, Make His paths straight!’”  In the Gospel of Luke we see that John was to: “…go on before the Lord to prepare His ways; To give to His people the knowledge of salvation by the forgiveness of th … [Read more...]

Atheist’s Arguments Against Christianity

Atheistic arguments ultimately fail. Atheists are determined to disprove the existence of God. They attempt to promote arguments that suggest there is evidence that God does not exist. A reader, in the comment section of one of my articles, supplied me with several of these arguments. While everyone will not accept all of my reasons, they are offered in the spirit of love with the hope that those who are truly seeking answers will realize that they do exist for these challenges and that … [Read more...]
