When Jesus Prays For You

I’m not sure if it’s right or wrong, but I find it to be comforting when someone I perceive to be spiritually stronger than I am prays for me. I suppose that subconsciously it feels like God is more likely to answer that prayer because of their impressive faith. That may or may not be the […]

Don’t Be a “Red-Letter” Christian

I was reading a book recently that left me very disappointed. I did not realize it ahead of time, but the author is one whom could be identified as a so-called “Red Letter Christian”, which is a semi-organized group of Christians who believe that the whole Bible is true but intentionally place particular emphasis on […]

The Gospel is an Offense

Galatians 5:11 calls the gospel “the offense of the cross”. The message of Jesus – that he is God in the flesh, died for sin, rose from death, and will come again to judge the living and the dead – is one that some people will celebrate with joy and others will despise with the […]

“I came from God”

It boggles my mind how many people see Jesus as merely a historical, religious figure who taught people not to judge and to love thy neighbour. To be sure, Jesus is a historical, religious figure, and he did teach about judging others and loving others. But if that is all you think of when you think […]

Why Pray in Jesus’ Name?

…and we pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen. Heard that one before? If you’ve been around Christians much at all, no doubt this is a phrase you are well acquainted with.
