Worship: “Who Do Christians Worship?”

What would be the answer if we asked people “Who do Christians worship?” I imagine we would get the same response: from new believers; from young children; from atheists. “Christians worship God.” Few would diverge from this fairly well-known fact. However, “who is God?” would yield altogether different responses, even among His redeemed. Not only would different denominations and traditions…

Ten Little Words with Big Meanings

This post is a continuation of a previous one. Here, I selected five small, yet potent words we often see when reading the New Testament.

As though tables in a temple, Christ turned over their doctrines: the self-exaltation of personal preferences, the self-preservation of comforts and safety, the self-insulation that claims to love God,…

Film Recommendation: “Luther”
