The Pleasures of True Christianity

I recently read a biography on William Wilberforce, who almost single-handedly abolished the slave trade in Great Britain and, decades later, slavery altogether in the early 1800’s. He began the fight at the age of 21 and the final law to abolish slavery was passed three days before his death over 40 years later. He […]

Christian: You Are God’s Inheritance

I love it when, while reading a familiar passage of the Bible, you come across something that somehow you missed every other time you read it. Such was the case the other day when reading in Ephesians 1. It says, in part, [16] I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in […]

We Don’t Need a “New” Christianity

In our modern world, everything gets billed as being new. New phone, new car, new sports equipment…heck, even shaving razors and electric toothbrushes come out with the “latest technology”! Everything has to be new, or else it is rendered unimportant. Anything that sticks to the status quo is doomed to be considered antiquated and out-of-date […]
