Come – Two Steps of Discipleship.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

By Benjamin Nelson Did you know that Jesus did not come to make Christianity – or even Christians? Do you realize that He was not trying to start a religion or to found of a movement? Jesus tell us: for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. – Luke 19:10 But how does He do it? How does He go about this […]

By Benjamin Nelson Happy Monday – make that – Happy Social Media Monday @CommentsOnChristianity – That’s right! It’s a thing, and we’re glad you’re here. I will confess.

I have a personal Facebook account and a Facebook page which I use to link to my […]

Like My Body? It’s A Rental

2

By Zach Van Houten You may have a sexy physique, a flawless face, a perfect smile. You can go to the gym, the tanning salon, the plastic surgeon’s office. You can wear the right clothes, the right makeup, rock the right hairstyle… But none of that matters when you’re six feet deep. No one receives complements in the casket. More than just appearance, how we view our life in the […]

Deceptions of Satan revealed by children’s show “Lazy Town” Part 3

Deception 3

By Derek Jordan Robbie VS Stingy Today’s article is the finale of the “Learn Satan’s deceptions from Lazy Town” series so be sure to start from the beginning. The Stamp Guy didn’t only pull Ziggy off course, he gets Stingy too. Without knowing much about this character, you can probably figure out what will motivate him just by hearing his name. Robbie convinces Stingy that if he places the stickers […]

Targeting ISIS

ISIS-truck-convoy-Anbar-Province564

By Benjamin Nelson How do you solve a problem like ISIS? I’m an American Christian. I live in suburban New Jersey, where there is a Christian church in every town – dozens in some. I hear the news and it breaks my heart. But what can I do? Write to my senator and ask him to bomb the crap out of Iraq? Record a YouTube video with a rant? Sign […]

Escaping The Claws of Depression

file4801310649783

By Zach Van Houten I didn’t know when I was writing this article that depression would come into the spotlight like it has due to the suicide of Robin Williams. With that in mind there is no better time to have a discussion about it. What I am going to share is very personal. A few of those closest to me, but not many, may know that I am recovering […]

Updated Thoughts on Predestination

file1361301586907

By Zach Van Houten I wrote earlier this year about my thoughts on the predestination (or election) debate in Thoughts on Predestination. I wrote about how we should approach the subject with respect for each other and humility. I also expressed my own lack of commitment to either side on the issue. But since then I have done some reading and thinking. Although I am still hesitant to stand up and […]

Deceptions of Satan revealed by children’s show “Lazy Town” Part 2

Deception-2

By Derek Jordan Robbie VS Ziggy Lazy Town‘s bad guy, Robbie, may seem lazy. He may seem to never be motivated to do anything, but that all changes when it comes to keeping the kids from doing something right. He will go ALL OUT in trying to keep them just as lazy as he wants to be. Today’s article is a continuation of the “Learn Satan’s deceptions from Lazy Town” […]

Rapture?

-Or- How you look at the end times could make a mess of your Christianity. By Benjamin Nelson This October, Nicholas Cage will be hitting the big screen, starring in a remake of the movie “Left Behind.” It’s based on the the best-selling book of the same name by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. The movie is a fictionalized dramatization of what might happen when Jesus comes back. When He […]

Leprosy is Like Sin

Leprosy

By Jason Neil Soto Sin. Is it that bad? I mean, why does God care if I lie, cheat, or steal? Leprosy is like sin. The bacteria that causes leprosy (also known as Hansen’s disease) divides at a slow rate. It can take 2 to 10 years for the symptoms of leprosy to show. Sin starts that way. A little lie here, a guilty pleasure there. It’s not hurting anyone. […]

Word of Faith Rebuttal

By Zach Van Houten Below is a email response to a friend of mine who is close to my heart, but who supports aspects of the Word of Faith movement. I addressed the errors in her reasoning through Scripture and thought it would be beneficial to share it with you. The recipient will remain anonymous and I will refer to her as “Natalie”. Since this was an email conversation our […]

Deceptions of Satan revealed by children’s show “Lazy Town” Part 1

Deception-1

By Derek Jordan How simple is it for the devil to deceive us? Could it be as easy as it is for Robbie Rotten, a children’s television villain, to deceive the upright children of Lazy Town? It is quite amazing how much this show can motivate children into living right. Mostly on the side of healthy eating and active living, but still a great motivational tool. A good example is […]

Is a Holocaust on the Horizon?

Exclusive CNN images capturing the homes of Christian families forced to leave the city by ISIS

By Benjamin Nelson How do you react when you see headlines like: “Facing fines, conversion or death, Christian families flee Mosul” ~ CNN Or this: “ISIS burns 1,800-year-old church in Mosul” ~ Al Arabiya News Or you read openers like this: Just days after the militant group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria said they killed hundreds of Syrians, dozens of Iraqi Christian families are now fleeing the ISIS-controlled […]

How to Know Who is a Christian

9390759231_c7729af2e3_b

By Jason Neil Soto “You can’t judge me. Who are you to judge? Only God can judge me!” People who make this argument often refer Christians to Jesus’ words in Matthew 7. “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. And why worry about […]
