Are you comfortable?

May 27th, 2010 |

Have you ever considered that there could be a deeper meaning to the Golden Rule? What if it is more than just being ‘nice’ to everybody? Could it be that we as Christians have become too comfortable in our daily lives? Be challenged today as we discover what the golden rule really means for true followers of Christ.

Should we forgive… everyone?

April 19th, 2010 |

Nearly everyone who has lived long enough here on this earth has been hurt by someone who was very close to them.  In fact, when someone does something bad to us it often hurts us much more if we have loved and cared for them.  If a wife divorces a husband often both partners are hurt inside.  If however they were just mere acquaintances, the pain they would have felt would have been much less.  How great a pain God must feel when he sees those he loves choose to forsake God and trample the gift of forgiveness poured out by his son Jesus!  Unfortunately the world seems to be getting increasingly wicked, increasingly cruel, and people such as you and me are often the victims of the outright evil behavior of others.  Acquaintances who are mad at us we can handle, but what about church members and family members?  How should we treat those who have hurt us in the past?  What does God desire you to do today?  Let us study the Bible to find the answer to this important topic.

No longer relegated to Las Vegas, poker is in California, online, and practically in every state in the U.S.  If you do a Google search for “Christian Poker”, the top ten results for me at least showed only articles saying “go ahead” or “as long as it doesn’t take over your life you are not sinning” but each article had little or no study of the Bible.  Surprisingly, there is hardly any Christian material on this subject.

The question is, are we obeying God’s commandments?  Are we following Jesus by playing poker?  Are we dishonoring God by playing poker?  Can a Christian justify playing poker?  Is there such a thing as a Christian poker player?  Is it a sin and does the Bible say anything at all?  These questions can be answered by investigating what Jesus said.  So let us study the Bible, God’s word to find the answer to whether Christians should play poker.
