He rose from the dead!
but the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body.
He ascended into heaven!
When the Lord Jesus had finished talking with them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand.
He will soon return again!
Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.
In his book ‘Influence,’ Cialdini uses the example of advertisers informing us that a product is the “fastest-growing” or “best-selling.” Advertisers don’t have to persuade us that a product is good, they only need to say others think so.
So ‘WHAT IF’ the presumed negativity around the Christian faith and Jesus Christ was the answer we should be running to rather than running from?
By 29 years of age, yours truly was on his way out the door of marriage #2, with an eight month old daughter … as was the case in marriage #1 but with an eight month old son. Coincidence, just life, or no God? Latter wins!

I was always led to believe that the bible was nothing more than nice stories and big tales. All the way through school, the same message was portrayed whenever the topic was addressed; and then a friend had me read the book of John.

Being brought up in a Christian home, I had my own challenges to face, especially with doubt when friends would share some pretty good and fair questions; fortunately I was grounded enough to ask for pastoral help when needed.

To Fear God

Just give me simple, you’re thinking!
We live in a fast paced time, rushing to do this or that, and more often than not, missing what’s really important. Quick fix is doable for starters with the Living God. As noted above ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’ (Romans 10:13), with nothing more than faith, trust and obedience from this point on; and as for “just give me simple,” …CLICK HERE AND DOWNLOAD A FREE COPY OF THE CONDENSED EDITION OF THE BOOK THAT TURNED THE LIFE OF YOURS TRULY INTO WHERE I AM TODAY.

Romans 12:8 (NLT) tells us … If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
tells us … For I know the plans I have
for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give
you a future and a hope.

The last thing I need is religion, you’re thinking!
You are correct! How about a high-five and double amen on that one? There are only two types of religion: 1/ Human Accomplishment … and … 2/ Divine Accomplishment … and only one can justify and substantitate itself as ‘Divine.’
Christianity is about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ … who is very much alive and in control of everything taking place around us; being friends with the CEO of the Universe doesn’t get any cooler! As for religion, best advice is, “RUN FOREST RUN!”
Is there proof for the existence of God? | Can we make a logical case for a Creator? | What is a born-again Christian? | What is God’s music like? | Does God have a preferable kind of music? | Isn’t Christian music weird and stuffy?
