God’s Design for Marriage

God’s Design for Marriage

Jun 27, 2013

Marriage came into existence, if you believe Jesus, by God’s design. In Matthew 19:4-6 he says “Have you not read that he who created them from beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? “So they are no...

Don Piper was our special guest in April

Apr 6, 2013

On his way home from a church conference in 1989, Don Piper’s Ford Escort was struck head-on by an 18-wheeler. He was killed instantly — pronounced dead by four sets of paramedics.

A Response to the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife

Apr 5, 2013

Maier As for the so-called “Wife of Jesus Gospel” (so-named by its discoverer, Harvard professor Karen King), while the document is in-teresting, it is only another of the long string of Gnostic writings that have been surfacing ever since 1947. Like all the others, it is of little or no use as authentic source material on Jesus. All Gnos-tic...

Born again!

Born again!

Apr 4, 2013

by Paul Sieveking   In his autobiography, the actor Sir Alec Guiness wrote about his confirmation day. His head was full of Bible stories and doctrine. The church was filled with parents, sponsors and friends. “I remember white hands and shaggy black eyebrows, a pale green light filtered through the windows, and at the age of 16, one early summer day, I...

Real life Hunger Games

Apr 4, 2013

by Philip B. Wolf For many, it is the latest fascination. For those washed shameless in God’s Sacrament of Baptism, it is the latest divine dinner bell calling from Camp Calvary to us, the satisfied, to serve those yet unsatisfied with the permanent solution to their hunger for life and love.
