KEEPING YOUR KIDS ON GOD’S SIDE

APOLOGETICS ISN’T APOLOGIZING

As I sat in my room I remember thinking, “I have believed there was a God for as long as I can remember, but why do I believe it? I knew that if someone asked me to offer a reason for why I believed God existed I would have nothing to say.” This, from the heart of a young adult. Why Do You Believe? Christians abandon their faith because they are not prepared to answer some of the simplest arguments against God. Why do you believe what you believe? Knowing what you believe gets you to the starting line. Know why you believe gets you across the finish line. Erich and Laurie Reule are parents of four beautiful daughters. Erich…

6 REASONS TO BELIEVE GOD IS THERE: PART 2

Could it be that our world is the platform on which God manifests Himself from behind the curtain of what we experience and describe as "natural causes?" I'm a fan of science, but science is limited. Science can explain the "what" of nature but not the "why" of existence. Here's where the observable is evidence of a purposeful Creator. Three More Reasons To Believe God Is There See Part 1,  for three observable evidences for the existence of a creator God. Here are three more. 4. The Earth's size is perfect for life.

6 REASONS TO BELIEVE GOD IS THERE: PART 1

Just once wouldn't you love for someone to simply show you the evidence for God's existence? No arm-twisting. No statements of, "You just have to believe." God doesn't force you to believe in Him. Instead, He has provided empirical proof of His existence for you to willingly respond to him. 6 Reasons Which Suggest God Exists 1. Water is colorless, odorless and without taste, and yet no living thing can survive without it. Water is chemically neutral. Without affecting the makeup of the substances it carries, water enables food, medicines and minerals to be absorbed and used by the body. Ninety-seven percent of the Earth's water is in the oceans. But there is a system designed which removes salt from…

SEEKING ALLAH, FINDING JESUS

"Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus" presents a gripping and deeply personal account of Nabeel Qureshi’s journey to faith in Jesus. Qureshi’s story of family, friends, and faith, intertwined with insights into Islam, helped me understand the Muslim world in new ways and see the powerful ways in which God is meeting seekers today. March 7, 2017 - "My family and I have received the news that I have advanced stomach cancer, and the clinical prognosis is quite grim. Nonetheless, we are going to pursue healing aggressively, both medical and miraculous, relying on God and the fact that He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. In the past few days my spirits have soared and sank…

8 Pivotal Facts About Jesus

Jesus never experienced an identity crisis, however he often sent his critics into a crisis because he was acutely self-aware. In one encounter he so frustrates his detractors that in exasperation they ask, “Who do you think you are?” (John 8:53) 8 Things Jesus Knew About Himself 1. "If it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come to you." (Luke 11:20) While this statement does not claim divinity, it amounts to a claim by Jesus to be exorcising demons as the agent through which the authority of God enters history. 2. Jesus spoke to God with an apparently unheard of intimacy by using the Aramaic term Abba ("Papa"). 3.…
