The Sinful Christian has many tough decisions
Posted Friday, October 24, at 12:01 PM

"My people are ruined because they don't know what's right or true. Because you've turned your back on knowledge, I've turned my back on you priests.

1 Corinthians 6:7-11 New King James Version (NKJV): "Now therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. Why do you not rather accept wrong?

Fleeting "love" can never fully gratify
Posted Friday, July 11, at 12:19 PM

"There's more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact. As written in Scripture, 'The two become one.' Since we want to become spiritually one with the Master, we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever--the kind of sex that can never "become one." There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others. ...

Light In A Dark World
Posted Sunday, June 29, at 2:24 PM

"You are light for the world. A city cannot be hidden when it is located on a hill. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. Instead, everyone who lights a lamp puts it on a lamp stand.
