You Can Teach Theology with Picture Books – Christian Article

As parents, we are our children’s first theology teachers. Like the women at the tomb on Easter morning, we run fearfully and joyfully to tell the people we love, “The tomb is empty! Christ has risen.” With hope-filled hearts, we teach our children about the living Lord. God has ordained a means for teaching our children how to love him—and not primarily by sending them to AWANA, or buying another picture Bible, or using the right curriculum. Learning about God…

Why Did God Require Animal Sacrifices?

Tweet Why would God require innocent animals, to be sacrificed for something they never did? Covering Sins Many skeptics of the Bible question the practice of sacrificing animals, so why would God require innocent animals to be sacrificed for something they never did?

The Road Less Traveled | Devotional by Kristi Huseby

“Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. . . Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all.

How to Defend the Gospels with Confidence

Last month, Harvard psychologist and atheist public intellectual Steven Pinker posted this provocative tweet: “As any Jew knows, there is controversy (to put it mildly) over whether Jesus was the messiah.

This, despite the fact that the book Pinker highlighted was self-published by someone without the relevant scholarly…
