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 …

The Mystery of Friendship

John Miltenberger BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, FEATURED ARTICLES, TEENS-KIDS 0 Comments

12/5/2016 “I do not call you slaves anymore, because a slave doesn’t know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have heard from My Father. 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?

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 …

We all like the Internet right? The ease (ok sometimes) with which we can look up information, read a book, watch a movie, or even buy stuff. The Internet is a supremely useful tool in the lives of many people. The Internet is now so common that it is no different then having a TV or a microwave, it’s something almost everyone has, and we in the USA tend to take it for granted. The …

Are You Hung Up On Pride?

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

The Bible warns us of pride. This feeling is not of God. Instead, it is from the world. Satan’s pride led to his fall from grace (Ezekiel 28). We should examine our hearts daily to see if pride has wiggled its way into our hearts. “For all that is in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not of the Father but is of the world.” …

Putting God First

What is your greatest treasure? What is your most precious possession? The Bible mentions our connection to this treasure. It is a heart connection. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Luke 12:34 (NKJV) If our heart treasure is money and success, we should take heed to Matthew 6:24. This scripture warns we cannot serve two masters. It is impossible to serve both God and money. Many a greedy man has …

Old Ellicott City Destroyed: God’s Wrath Cannot Be Stopped

Geri Ungurean BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, FEATURED ARTICLES, TEENS-KIDS, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 Comments

During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, I sang on a regular basis at a Christian Coffee House in Old Ellicott City on Main Street. It is about 10-15 minutes from our home.  It’s very historic. Main street had antique shops, fine French restaurants, a Train Museum, famous bakeries and many other stores. It was a grand attraction for the people in Maryland, and many came from various places to visit. But there was another …

Following God

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

Impatient and not willing to wait for God’s alignment of circumstances, too many of us interfere with God’s way of doing things. We step in, and with our own might and intellect, we try to hurry things along. We push aside our Savior and find our own path, forgetting that Jesus called us to, “Follow Him.” “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up …
