“The Shack”—Biblical or New Age?

Jerry Newcombe BODY OF CHRIST, FALSE DOCTRINE, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES, TEENS-KIDS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 Comments

By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min. 3/8/17 If you comment on the novel/movie, The Shack, you’re bound to get strong opinions, either pro or con. The Shack deals with Mack, a man who has suffered a horrible loss (the murder of his little daughter), which he discovered in a shack. In a (spoiler alert) dream sequence, he returns to that shack; and “God” in three persons meets him there. This encounter leads to an inner healing, where …

Me, My Selfie, and I

Jerry Newcombe FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES, TEENS-KIDS 0 Comments

By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min. 2/1/17 We used to be “the me generation.” Now perhaps we’re the selfie generation—the generation that exalts me, my selfie, and I. One article on Botox treatment called ours the “selfie culture.” But what happens when selfies—photographs taken by you of yourself—can actually endanger you or others or even animals? For a few years now I have been saving stories about people getting hurt or killed because of their selfies. Lightning …

Michael Snyder FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, TEENS-KIDS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL, WORLD NEWS 0 Comments

It doesn’t take much of a trigger to push extremely large crowds of very angry protesters into committing acts of rioting and violence.  And rioting and violence can ultimately lead to widespread civil unrest and calls for “revolution”.  The election of Donald Trump was perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and we have already seen that a single move by Trump can literally cause protests to erupt …

by Rev. Austin Miles BOISE, 1/28/17–Do not–repeat, DO NOT MISS THE BEAUTIFUL MOVIE, A Dog’s Purpose, no matter what the bogus animal protection group, PETA, claims in order to keep you from attending. Those hippie types have organized boycott petitions for this movie with 68,000 signatures while using their own fake news press releases to dissuade patrons from buying tickets to the most meaningful film that one could ever see.

Escapism vs. Exaltation: Two Opposing Motives for Sci-Fi and Fantasy

Scott Buss BODY OF CHRIST, FEATURED ARTICLES, TEENS-KIDS 0 Comments

Why do we imagine? Why do we fantasize? What is healthy fantasy? What is unhealthy fantasy? How do we determine the difference between the two and live in light of that distinction? How do we understand and interact with things like Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, The Chronicles of Narnia or The Hobbit? How do we pursue or avoid fantasy as it is presented to us in God’s creation in a …

You did not choose Me, but I chose you. I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will …

Do You Trust God Completely?

cherylz1961 BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS, BREAKING NEWS, FEATURED ARTICLES, INSPIRATIONAL PICTURES, TEENS-KIDS 0 Comments

God wants our trust. His desire for us is to trust Him completely, not partially. It is all or nothing with God. A lukewarm faith and lukewarm trust are of little value. “So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:16 (NIV) Every worry, seemingly impossible circumstance, and burning desire is in His control. Unfortunately, fear and doubt creep in when we do not understand …
