I Love to Tell the Story -- Dudley's Stream Post

The Stream website posted an article by Dudley on "I Love to Tell the Story." There are many stories that attempt to interpret history and define reality. None of them truly fit the plot. None of them carries the presence of the Savior with the story. They all lead to attempts at reaching immortality, blessings, God's acceptance, and a better life. None of them tells of...

MYTHBUSTERS: What are the 10 Commandments Good For?

What are the Ten Commandments are really good for. Aside from the issue of displaying them in courthouses and schoolrooms, what meaning do they have specifically for the Christian? As I began studying I came across this quote in the Bible Knowledge Commentary: Though believers today are not under the Law (Rom. 6:15), they are under obligation to abide by the holy...

Eliphaz's MBA

I recently read a business case written by a friend who works with businesses and individuals in implementing biblical solutions in their personal and workplace lives.

OBAMANATION: Is Obama God's Judgment on America?

The 2012 presidential campaign has begun, which is just another way of saying that the 2008 presidential election is over.

How many times have I heard evangelical Christians wondering (worrying) if the election of Obama is God's...

I was shocked as he quoted one of these highly respected men s...

Lewis's Mere Ch...
