When Feelings Trump Everything, Everything Dies

We feel, therefore we think we’re thinking. But we’re not thinking much, if at all, these days. We’re emoting. We’ve venting. We’re ranting. And we’re dying. Dying as slaves; slaves to emotion. According to Psychology Today, “The average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950s.” Lest there be any confusion, I’m no fan of Psychology Today. Even so, the point made stands and …

What Does “Satanic” Mean, and Why do We not Seem to Know?

Scott Buss BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES 0 Comments

What does it mean to be “satanic”? Does a thing have to be over-the-top creepy/bad, like Fifty Shades of Grey or a Ouija board, in order to qualify? Does a person have to do extra-spicy, super-duper evil stuff like subscribe to Playboy or vote Hillary in order to breach the satanic threshold? What does it take? What makes a person or activity satanic? While there are many ways of approaching that question, let’s just focus on the …

Country Preacher Nails It!

Rev. Austin Miles BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES 0 Comments

by Rev. Austin Miles MERIDIAN, ID 3/20-/17–Yesterday, while in Idaho, this columnist visited the “10 Mile Church” in Meridian. A warm welcome greeted my family and, as Joel Osteen says,  “Come visit us, I promise, we’ll make you feel right at home,” and that is exactly how we were made to feel…right at home. We were comforted just by being there. THEN the pastor said something that astonished us all. Even though it was simple, we will never forget …

By John Miltenberger 3/8/2017 So an elder must be a man whose life is above reproach. He must be faithful to his wife. He must exercise self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation. He must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must be able to teach. He must not be a heavy drinker or be violent. He must be gentle, not quarrelsome, and not love money. He must manage his own family …

By John Miltenberger 3/6/2017 I am extremely blessed to be part of a Christian body that is led to continually strive for personal and corporate holiness, and never ceases to push for more of the manifest presence of the Lord. I know this zeal pleases the Lord, and because of this congregational focus, real transformational change becomes inevitable. It is exciting, but there are extenuating circumstances…. The other night I was praying and asking God …

How God Is Using “Gay Marriage” To Teach Us About Law

Scott Buss BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 Comments

Ask any remotely coherent Christian if, just because a (local, state, or national level) government proclaims a homosexual couple to be “married”, that then makes said “marriage” legitimate and real, and the Christian in question would likely have little trouble rightly and rationally coming down on the side of: No, of course not. Just because a judge or a court or a civil government claims to have redefined marriage to include homosexual couples, that in no way …

Should it really be surprising that we have boys who think they’re girls, men who think they’re women, women who think they’re men, and girls who think they’re boys in a culture loaded with pagans who think they’re Christians? Of course not. Yet while we shouldn’t be surprised, most of us are, which, in and of itself, tells us a whole lot about why our culture is going to hell on a rocket. So what’s the …

By John Miltenberger 3/6/2017 1 “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like 10 virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the groom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were sensible. 3 When the foolish took their lamps, they didn’t take olive oil with them. 4 But the sensible ones took oil in their flasks with their lamps. 5 Since the groom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell …
