The Only Essence for Life by Robert Ricciardelli

We often exist on the peripherals of life, the circumference of real truth and life. We become confused as to what the essence of God and freedom really are, and end up holding on to the superficial and claiming it as substance. The absolutes and the true Center seems to be crumbling as reality in our lives. We live on the the fleshly edges for so long that it starts feeling like the only life available, never able to touch the depths of our soul and spirit. We have so many opportunities and … [Read more...]

Freedom: the Good Life We Were Born For by John C. Meyer

How many times have you heard someone mention it? How many people long to live it? How much would you pay to get it? The good news is we don't have to do anything to earn it. Freedom is truly free to all who acknowledge the Source of it. I spent years living behind the bars of a barren and love-deprived existence sitting in my own self-righteous solitary confinement. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I would shrink back in fear over something I did wrong or engaged in an … [Read more...]

Don’t Worry by Alan Smith

Phil 4:6-7: Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don't forget to thank him for his answers.

The Changed Meaning of Liberty by Rev. R.J. Rushdoony

Words change their meanings, and people who assume that older meanings still prevail invite deception thereby. It is part of current Marxist ideology to give a new content and an alien meaning to such familiar words as peace, freedom, republic, law, and so on.New meanings precede revolutions, because the content of human hopes is altered dramatically, and the existing order finds that it cannot satisfy the new meanings. Before the French Revolution, the idea of liberty had taken on a new … [Read more...]

God’s Love is the Power to Change by Robert Ricciardelli

You cannot be healed from the things you do not acknowledge, and what you do not consciously acknowledge will remain in control of you from within, festering and destroying you and those around you.

When we encounter God's love, freedom, peace, and joy come upon us. God does not love us if we change, but through His amazing grace, God loves us … [Read more...]
