Do I Have to Tithe?

Do I have to tithe in the New Covenant? When it comes to tithing, there are two extremes. One extreme is the legalistic view that makes tithing a law which you must obey, or else! The other extreme is that of some grace preachers that say tithing is irrelevant since we are not under the […]

Grace for the Fallen

Remember Samson? Just watched a powerful dramatic enactment of his story at Sight & Sound Theater in Pennsylvania.  His story is recorded in Judges 13-16. God chose him and anointed him to deliver His people from their enemies.  But his success depended upon his adherence to some very specific instructions God gave him.  One of […]

Are you trying hard to work for God? May I suggest you stop? That’s right, stop trying so hard to work for God! Now, I know some of you are ready to tie me to the stake and set me on fire for preaching heresy. But before you do, let me explain. By now we […]

Did Jesus Come to Make Bad Men Good?

Contrary to what many religious people believe, Jesus did not come to make bad men good. He came to make dead men live. That is why Christianity is not religion. It is not self-improvement. It is not about you doing your best to be holy. Christianity is Life. It is God’s Life, imparted to you, […]

Perfecting Your Love for God

Stop trying to love God. That’s right, I said, “Stop trying to love God.” How can I say this?  Didn’t Jesus say the greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart?  Yes, He did, but He never thought that you would be able to do so by “trying” your best.  “By the works of […]

The Greatest Battles In Life

In spiritual warfare, the devil’s primary target is your mind because he knows that if he can control your thoughts, he can control your emotions. If he can control your emotions, he can control your behavior. He knows that the only way he can get into your spirit is to come through your mind. Therefore, […]

A Cause for Concern

What would happen if a king pardoned all prostitutes in his kingdom for past transgressions and simultaneously issued a decree that released all prostitutes from future judgment? A lot of joy among prostitutes and a whole lot more prostitution taking place! Even so, simply telling saints the wonderful news that when they received Christ, all […]

God Freely Gives To You All Things

It’s unfortunate that so many Christians have not grasped the extent of the Father’s love and how eager He is to meet their needs.  They beg, they cry, they sacrifice, all in an effort to “get” God to hear their prayers.  To persuade Him to meet their needs.  But is any of this necessary?
