Is Jesus Your Top Priority?

Written by Dr. Jim Simoneau

On the fourth of July we are reminded of the founding fathers and the dream that God used to bring America to life. If you have read much about the founding fathers, you will realize that many of them made great sacrifices to found this nation. Some lost their fortunes, their families, even their own lives to help us be in a free Christian nation. Christian liberty was worth living for and dying for to them.

Am I Too Late to Save for Retirement?

Written by Dave Ramsey

Question: I’m 42, and I haven’t started saving for retirement. I’m self-employed and not making a lot of money right now, plus I have about $8,000 in debt. It feels like I’m living paycheck to paycheck, and I just can’t seem to save or get anything paid off. Can you help?

Do you know someone who experienced tragedy or trauma associated with the tornadoes of April 2011? Do you have a military service member in your family who has rotated in and out of Iraq or Afghanistan? Have you been through a terrifying situation which was beyond your ability to control, where you believed life and limb was at stake, and where, at that time, there seemed to be no resources available for help? Does it seem to have changed you, or the person you’re thinking of, in a harmful way?

Modeling True Marital Love For Your Kids

Written by Brenda Payne

As a Christian wife and mother, I have a responsibility to love my husband biblically and to teach my children the true meaning of marital love. I cannot teach them what I do not understand. I cannot convince them of what I do not practice. If I allow my children to be informed by the culture, the view of love they will develop will be the very opposite of true love. Think about it. Most modern movies, TV shows, and songs picture marital love as something to get not give; something to feel not do; and something that is easily dissolved not fiercely protected. In fact, if I leave my children with no biblical explanation to shape their mindset and no godly example to follow, why would they get married at all? The predominant cultural view of marriage flies in the face of the sanctity of marriage found in the Scriptures. Hollywood portrays shacking up and splitting up not only as the norm, but desirable. Of course, Christians know that the eroding of marriage leads to a host of family and societal problems. So, what am I am to do as a mother who desires that my children embrace marital love as defined by the Scriptures? I can only do what I can do: teach, model and pray!

    From Death to Life: How Salvation Works

    by Allen S. Nelson IV

     

     

    The doctrine of salvation is awash on a sea of Pelagianism and Semi-Pelagianism. Marked by the curse of sin, the image-bearers of God have a need to “earn” their salvation. “Surely, there must be something I can do to merit favor before a holy God,” says the modern man. This false “gospel” is propagated in churches around the world and creates chaos and confusion.
