Wow, I can’t begin to tell you how many opinions this question has. Some believe if we sin enough, we can lose our salvation, others believe we fall away but can come back again, and some believe it’s all been done on the cross, and thereby salvation can not be lost. What category do I fit in? If you’ve read my blog long enough, you’ll probably guess the third one.
So I received a comment requesting a post on demons. That may sound a little strange, but I was thinking after I read that, How come we never hear Christians talk about the devil? I’m not talking about having an in-depth conversation about demons, I mean just acknowledging their existence and knowing their plans.
CCM artist, Moriah Peters, returns with her Sophomore album, Brave. The question is, does the music sound like its title? Brave and not safe? Well, yes and no.
Are you going through a tough stage in your life that doesn’t seem to be ending, and the only advice you have been given is, “It’s your lack of faith”? Really, that advice never helps, and only serves to make us feel inadequate in the Lord’s work.
We’ve all heard the word. Repent. It’s a major part of the Christian life, and I’m sure we’ve done it more than once. But I’ve been thinking, we throw this word around so much, is it doing the world any good?
The Shield of Faith is a pretty straight forward part of the armor, isn’t it? Your faith protects you from the attacks of the enemy. But the question to ask is, faith in what? Believe it or not, some Christians have faith in the wrong thing.
There are three types of faith I’ve seen Christians have: faith in their religion, faith in their faith, and faith in Jesus.
In celebration of an old friend returning home, I thought I’d go ahead and review his favourite worship album, Phil Wickham’s the Ascension.
Phil Wickham is easily one of the best worship leaders active today, and the Ascension is just another addition to his ever growing collection of worship albums that are above the norm. Even the cover is as beautiful as the music itself.
Has anyone ever hurt or rejected you? More than likely, unfortunately, you’ll answer yes. Has anyone ever condemned you for not living the way you should? Yep, unfortunately that too happens a fair bit in churches. It’s felt by anyone who tells you to live under the law. But the real question I want to ask these people, and you if you have ever hurt anyone, is this: Who are you?
It’s been a while since I’ve done a post on writing, and since I’m a writer, I thought it time to write another post on, well, writing! With this post, I thought I’d walk you through the basic steps I take in order to write a full length novel, short story, or anything your heart desires. Take note that this is what I do and am comfortable doing, you might have a completely different take. That’s what makes being creative so fun, everyone does it in their own way.
One of the most consistent labels over the past few years has easily been Humble Beast. The amazing rap label that gives all their releases for free. Jackie Hill Perry’s debut album, The Art of Joy, is the latest of the Humble Beast releases, and it’s a beauty.
If you read the title, you’re probably cringing. Yes, I’m going to talk about the single most hushed over subject in Christian circles because I know some (ok, it’s more like all) of you are struggling with the habit. Now I could begin this post with an only for mature readers comment like I did for the one on pornography, but I think we all need to hear this. If you disagree, then stop reading, because I’m going in deep! For clarity’s sake, this goes for men and women.
The next part of the Armor of God I’m going to look at is the shoes of the preparation of the Gospel of peace. So what does it mean to have your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace? First, I want you to look at that word: Preparation.
