Forgetfulness of the Cross

Why I Believe in the Resurrection

Since we have just come out of Easter, I thought I would share why I believe in the resurrection of Jesus. These are not “proofs.” If you have already decided you do not believe in the resurrection, these reasons are not likely to change your mind…. Read Article

It is Well With My Soul

Horatio Spafford lost everything; everything– except his faith.  His only son died at the age of four; the great Chicago fire of 1871 ruined his successful law practice and shortly thereafter, he lost all four of his daughters when the ship they were traveling on, crashed and sank… Read Article

Type

The word ‘type’ is a self-antonym. As used in Christian theology, a type is something that looks forward or back to an anti-type.

Meaningless, Meaningless. Is Money Really Meaningless?

If you read through the book of Ecclesiastes, you’ll notice that the author uses the phrase ‘meaningless, meaningless’ to describe almost everything.
