The Value of Faith

Written by Bob Crittendon

What do you think is the value to society of the practice of religion?  Could you place a “dollar value” on it?

Well, two researchers have attempted to do just that. Brian Grim of Georgetown University and his daughter, Melissa Grim of Newseum Institute, have released a study that has calculated three estimates of religion’s socio-economic value to the United States, according to an article on the Christianity Today website.

Hearing the Love

Written by Saralu (Sam) Belkofer

1 Corinthians, Chapter 13

Verse 1: “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal…”

Verses 4, 5, and 6: “… Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth…”

God's Fingerprints

Written by Sam Whatley

I Want to Forgive, But How?

Written by Kemi Searcy

An offense creates highly detrimental weather between us and our fellow humans or even God. Holding onto an offense is never profitable because it allows our souls to be poisoned by the slime of bitterness, resentments, anger, rage, and un-forgiveness that brings about a wounded spirit.

Never Alone

Written by Dr. Teman Knight

Several prominent pastors have stepped down from their pastorates over the past few months citing burnout and depression. No matter the size of their church, all pastors must deal with stress and difficult situations. Having been a pastor for 32 years, I know that sometimes you feel alone, overwhelmed, isolated and inadequate. We can end up feeling like Elijah under the juniper tree—like we are the only servant God has left.

Book Reviews

  • Like the Shepherd by Robert Wolgemuth

    The great challenge in marriage is not to love our wives more but to love ourselves less, for it is self-love that generates so much of the strife we experience. To be successful husbands we must continually put to death within us whatever causes us to prioritize ourselves, our own interests, our own comfort, our own good. To do this successfully we need counsel, we need men who can make us aware of our self-love and who can provide examples of selflessness.

Faith at Work

  • Judah and Samantha Helms

    RRJ:  You both had exposure to Jesus and His church as children, but you were still left wanting more.  What would you two say were the ingredients for your powerless (ho-hum) Christianity?

     

    Judah: Growing up in the South, I identified with Christianity as a part of my culture. Going to church was expected of you, just like it was expected that you be an obedient child and make good grades. For me, falling in line with those cultural expectations was my lone incentive to be a Christian. I didn’t want to be an outcast or generate any controversy around myself. So I became the “good Christian boy” that my family could be proud of. But in the end, that is a very disingenuous lifestyle that isn’t sustainable.
