Four Distinct Advantages of a Theistic Worldview – Christian Article

I am a Christian because Christianity is true. I didn’t become a believer to solve a problem, to make a better life, or guarantee a place in heaven. I’m not a Christian because it “works” for me.

What Your Grumbling Says About God – Christian Article

“If the Lord is entirely sovereign (which he is), and if he is always good to you in Christ (which he is), well then, when we grumble and complain in any circumstance, we’re actually denying God’s involved.
