Crisis of Faith, Losing your Faith, Broken Spirit – Christian Article

Tweet What is a crisis of faith and what do you do when you have one? Losing Faith What happens when you’ve lost your faith? What do you do when you feel your spirit’s broken and now you’ve entered a crisis of faith? Maybe we can look to Scripture and see what the other saints did during their crisis of faith, or their losing faith in God’s will for their life. When faced with the bitterest of disappointments, sometimes we…

Coping With Religious Family Over the Holidays – Christian Article

By Marlene Winell ~ At this time of year it’s hard to avoid dealing with the differences you have with your family. If you are a “reclaimer” (reclaiming your life after being religious) who has been raised in a religious household, holiday times can be very uncomfortable when other family members are still devout. Having worked through these issues with many clients, here are a few guidelines that might be helpful.  I’ll start by suggesting you write in a journal, starting…

The Proof God Exists – End Times Christian Article

Many people claim God doesn’t exist, and I often hear people say there’s no proof or evidence to believe in God’s existence. “You just have to accept it on faith,” they say. “There’s no evidence.” This statement is made as if it’s a fact. But is it? No way. Nothing could be further from the truth. People can prove God’s existence in any number of…

mission is where you are – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

Yesterday I rode the Max blue line through the Hollywood transit station. Two heroic men died defending two young girls, one of them apparently Muslim, yesterday. A third man is in the hospital with a slashed throat. I’m horrified and inspired at the same time. Horrified that a person would inflict such unprovoked hate and carnage on others; inspired that strangers would set aside their own safety to come to the aid of their neighbors. They put their lives on…

Fathers, love your family through family fun and worship – CBMW – Christian Article

Fathers, love your family through family fun and worship As a father of five, it is easy for me to get discouraged about my personal failings as a dad. I don’t spend enough time with my children; I don’t spend enough time with my wife; I lose my patience too often; I am not encouraging enough. I could go on. I pray often that God would help me to change in these areas, and I am working toward improvement daily…

What Christmas Means to Me | Endtime Ministries | End of the Age – End Times Christian Article

As Irvin saw all the Christmas lights, heard the Christmas carols and observed all the celebrations, he paused to ask himself: What does Christmas really mean to me? I’m aware of the miracle of the virgin birth. I know about the angels appearing to the shepherds the night Jesus was born in Bethlehem. I’ve read about the Wise Men being led by the special star until they came to the place where the Christ child lay. I’ve heard about the miracles…

Sermon Notes Pages to Engage Children in the Pulpit Lesson – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

It’s a new school year and a great time to develop new good habits. At my congregation, everyone is together for the first half of services. We sing and pray together, then take communion. Following this, our K-3rd graders are dismissed to Children’s Church. But what about my fourth and fifth graders, or even the middle school kids? I looked around the auditorium disappointed. Kids galore were playing on digital devices, some wearing headphones and others simply had the volume…

Gospel Motives for Gospel Perseverance – Christian Article

It’s been a sad time for the Christian Church over the past couple of years as various prominent Christian preachers and teachers have fallen into sin or, worse, fallen from the faith. I’m sure many of us look at this and ask, “If they fall, what hope for me? If they don’t get to the end of the Christian race, how will I ever manage it? On top of that there’s the opposition to Christians that come from the every…

On National Christianity | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

On National ChristianityBy Jack Kinsella I was surprised by the number of you who took me to task by email or in the forums for my comments that the Ten Commandments seem to me an incongruous choice for the battlefield upon which American Christianity would make its stand. Among the various objections were that I sounded a bit anti-Semitic, that I was arguing against the Ten Commandments, that I was advocating disobedience or a license to sin, and so forth.…

Keeping Christ in Christmas – Train Up The Child – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

The excitement of Christmas has already begun at our house – the tree is decorated, the Christmas lists are made out, and soon the baking, shopping, and parties will be in full swing.  It is so easy in all this activity to let the real meaning of Christmas go unmentioned.  We adults know that Christmas is Jesus’ birthday but how are our children going to know unless we tell them.  They may see this only as a time when all…

Prophetic dream warns of bloody racial civil war coming to the United States. – End Times Christian Article

In a dream two nights ago, I saw a terrible wide-scale civil war between blacks and whites raging throughout the United States. For whatever reason, none of us seemed to have access to guns, so the war was being fought with knives and it was gruesome and bloody. The fighting seemed to go on and on with many casualties. I recognized the knife I was holding as a steak knife from my own kitchen. At one point, a man in…

6 Steps To Go from Nobody to Networking Junkie – Home – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

Networking is a big deal. Some may say it isn’t, but I’ve seen the power of it. Networking has allowed me to go from knowing nobody, to rubbing elbows with and being on a first name basis with some of the biggest names in a variety of industries. As a systems analyst I was able to use networking to go from knowing very little about computer programing to sitting in a private session with executive level leaders of the company…

Should I Quit the Job I Love to Be an Overseas Missionary? – Christian Article

My wife and I have always been open to God calling us to be missionaries overseas. An opportunity has presented itself in a country with few gospel laborers, and it seems like it could be a great fit. We both love our jobs, however, and we truly believe we are serving God in them. God clearly called us to these jobs, and he has blessed us and others in them. How do we discern whether God is calling us to…

Why your youth worker never takes a holiday… – Youth Work Hacks – Youth Ministry Christian Article

When I worked for my first church, I discovered a rock-and-hard-place fact about vacation time: I couldn’t take any! Throughout school term time, there was a strong feeling across the congregation that I needed to be around for all the projects in case the teenagers ‘needed’ me. During the Summer holidays, the regular volunteers had historically taken a break, so I needed to flash-mob together an ad hoc temporary team for the many youth and children’s groups the church insisted…

Every Christian is a Servant and Saint: Part 2 – Christian Article

06 Dec Every Christian is a Servant and Saint: Part 2 Posted at 03:00h in Daily Devotions by Mark Driscoll Philippians 1:1 – To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi If you had to pick one word to describe how God sees you, which word would you pick? Most people, I would presume, would say that God sees them as a “sinner”. God sees you as a “saint”. This might be shocking and is likely not something you…

Podcast (crosstalk): Play in new window | Download | Embed Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | In today’s Bible study we answer a voicemail question from Rachel about celebrating religious holidays, like Christmas and Easter. Is there a biblical precedent for celebrating these man-made religious holidays? Should Christians be in favor, opposed, or indifferent to the celebrations?
