Christians in Other Countries Don’t Have it as Well as We Do

Recent research shows that … there were, on average, 270 new Christian martyrs every 24 hours over the past decade, such that “the number of martyrs [in the period 2000-2010] was approximately 1 million.” Compare this to an estimated 34,000 Christian martyrs in 1900. We have it good here. And we tend to appreciate it …

Fake Christians: The Latest Teen Craze

This is a very unsettling CNN report.  But those of us who have seen churches pander to kids just to get them to attend know all too well that as soon as they’ve had their fill of the gifts and pizza and trips and fun, they’re gone, just like their dedication to Christ. If you’re the …

Teens Are Flocking to A False Version of Christianity

They are, in other words, becoming servants of a god of their own construction and not the God revealed in Scripture. Why?

Something Else to Think About

“The person who loves you most will tell you the most truth. One of the greatest distinguishing marks of a false prophet is that he will always tell you what you want to hear, he will never rain on your parade, he will get you clapping, he will get you jumping, he will make you …

If You Missed the Sunday Evening Service…

You missed a blessing. We enjoyed special singing and our guest Preacher did a wonderful job of sharing God’s Word with us. It was a very challenging sermon. Whenever you decide to stay home (or whatever) from worship you always run the risk of missing a blessing. Like Thomas, who missed the first appearance of …
