• Posted on 05/11/2018 - Last year the film “Wonder Woman” was released. But the Bible talks about a real wonder woman: the woman of Proverbs 31. The woman described in this passage is the longest description of any family member in the Bible. That should tell us a lot about what God thinks of mothers and how important they are. The chapter is an acrostic, which means that each verse begins with the succeeding letter of the Hebrew alphabet. What we’re given is an A-to-Z description of what a wonder woman – a woman of virtue – is like. Verse…

  • Posted On 12/22/2017  -  Awhile back my grandson, Christopher, found some ants in the family room. “Papa, come look at the ants!” he called. We got down on our hands and knees and looked at them. He said, “The ants are going to get me, Papa!”“No, they aren’t,” I told him. “I’m going to get the ants.” I took a little paper towel, wiped them up and flushed them down the toilet.Would you be willing to become an ant to reach the ants?

  • I recently had yet another exchange with an abortion supporter who argued abortion is justified from the perspective of a woman’s “bodily rights.” I have written pro-life responses to this argument before, such as here and here.

It is easy to lose sight about what we are actually talking about when bodily rights is raised, and that is…

  • THE MISSIONARY CALL was expressed by Paul in Acts 16:9: “A vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.”Paul discovered that a missionary call is a divine urge, a compelling impulse that a person cannot resist. The calling creates a divine urge to respond. It is like a hunter’s dog on a leash, straining to get away. Missionary Pastor Oswald J. Smith calls it “an irresistible must.”How should a person respond to the inner urgings of a calling from God?1. LISTENPDF LinkWilliam D. Alton…

  • Posted By Greg Laurie On 11/17/2017     When wickedness is rampant, we wonder why God doesn’t stop it. We look around at our world today and wonder, “Why would God allow those terrorists to do what they did?” or “Why would God allow that injustice?” or “Why does God permit these things to happen?”God is fully aware of what is happening. First he reveals his grace before he brings his judgment. The Old Testament book of Genesis begins with the story of the Garden of Eden, where everything was perfect. Adam and Eve lived in a beautiful garden with the…
