Are You Bitter at God?

Written by Staff

Some people—yes, even Christian people—become bitter at God. It’s not that He has sinned against them and is in need of their forgiveness.

Rather, he kept his eyes on the character of God, who for His Own eternal purposes allows human suffering.

Why Can’t She Get Another Job?

Written by Dave Ramsey

Question: I listen to you often and enjoy your radio show, but why don’t you ever ask women to go to work? When a family is broke, and the woman is at home raising one child who is already in the fifth grade, why can’t the wife get a “second job?”

The Intersection; What’s Your Code?

Written by Bob Crittendon

The news shocked the world of college basketball, just weeks before that annual tradition known as “March Madness” was set to begin.

On Cancer and Marriage…

Written by Mike & Lisa Conn

Last month, Doyle Powell expressed thankfulness to his First Baptist Sunday school class for the many calls, cards, casseroles, and prayers.  He couldn’t count the number of people who had contacted them since Lisa, his bride of 31 years, was diagnosed with endometrial cancer three days prior.  They were so thankful their friends were lifting them up daily—asking our heavenly Father for complete healing of Lisa’s body.  In fact, Doyle and Lisa were clinging to this lifeline of prayer.
