Children That Are Born Everyday are Still Unwanted!

Children That Are Born Everyday are Still Unwanted!

Most people would agree with the statement that all life is valuable. The statistics of more than 50 million babies being aborted since abortion in America was legalized in 1973 calls the question. What is really valuable to the church? Along with this statistic is the overwhelming number of children that are born but unwanted, living on the streets or in foster care/orphanages around the world. Each year over 800,000 children go in and out of America’s Foster Care System…. Around the world, millions of children are orphaned, hungry and abused. This article by Kinsey Thurlow calls us to answer this question… Is the Church ready for the abortion law to change?….h168(); Life is valuable in the womb, and we must see that … Read entire article »

Love and Worship through the lense of Luke 7

June 1st, 2011 Comments Off

“When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.” Luke 7:36-38 This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read in Scripture. This woman was a known “sinner”. The term sinner here could mean many things, but calling a woman back then a known … Read entire article »

when i think of the word ‘genuine’ i think of a person who is willing to get to know you as a person; someone who is willing to sit down and talk. someone who is willing to know you – the real you – in a meaningful and real way. now – this sounds great and fine. but is it really possible to be that genuine with everyone i come into contact with? let me answer that for you: no. it simply is unrealistic for me to walk around truly caring that much about each and every person i stop and say hello to. but is it possible to be genuine to an extent that people feel loved and as if i was … Read entire article »

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–Prior to my present place of ministry, I spent more than 20 years consulting with churches across America. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to research churches primarily in the United States. Over time I began to notice certain patterns or signs that would indicate a congregation might be headed for trouble. After reviewing my consultation notes and research, I found 10 warning signs for churches. If a church had four or more of these signs present, I would let the leadership know that remedial efforts were in order. If six or more signs were present, I was concerned that the congregation was in immediate trouble. The warning signs below are not listed in any particular order. Nor are … Read entire article »

College dorm rooms are not known for being luxurious, but after spending two days experiencing homelessness, Central Bible College (Springfield, Missouri) students gained a greater appreciation for the blessing of guaranteed shelter and a greater sense of compassion for those who are not so fortunate. From March 31 – April 2, 65 CBC students endured freezing temperatures and empty stomachs to gain a small understanding of what it’s like to be homeless through an event called In Their Shoes. Chelsea Chavez, CBC Student Government vice president, suggested the In Their Shoes concept after hearing about a similar event that took place at her friend’s school. “We did it to raise awareness on campus, one about the poverty going on in Springfield and all over the world. And two, so that we could get … Read entire article »

Anguish is not a word we hear in the Church. David Wilkerson tackles a topic most churches are afraid of dealing with. For too long the Church has mirrored the World. We allow sin in our leadership, sin in our congregations and sin in our churches without calling it sin and dealing with it. Where is the anguish in the Church? Why are Christians staying in their Churches while the world is going to hell? Why are we content with our programs and our little “church lives” and we forget that the world is going to hell? David Wilkerson calls the Church to rise up! To begin to fast and pray and stop focusing on Christian fluff-the programs, the agendas. We have to take on the … Read entire article »
