Another Gospel

Written by Bob Crittendon

After attending a National Religious Broadcasters Convention, certainly there is much to process.  It is a time for many to receive training and exhortation, to connect with practical tools in order to be better communicators of the gospel.  For others, it is a time for encouragement, to be built up in the faith.

My NRB experience for years has been to hear firsthand from Christian communicators, including authors, musical artists, commentators, actors, and more.  I believe that one of the threads upon which I was able to explore this year at the convention in Orlando was the conflict between the true gospel and what I have referred to as “another gospel,” borrowing from the verse in Galatians 1:8 - “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.”

The Promise of Amazing Grace

Written by Sam Belkofer, LPC

Spring reminds us of God’s promise that there is constant and consistent rebirth. For Christians, the Resurrection of Christ is God’s most loving and powerful Promise and gift of all.  Each year, Christians honor and practice the rituals of Lent, leading us to the sacred despair of the crucifixion of Jesus and the joy of the Resurrection of Christ.  This affirms God’s promise of eternal life by the path to him through our faith that Christ will lead us there. This time of year it is easy to see this promise in nature’s gifts of blooming trees and flowers, the greening of grass and the gradual warming of the temperature. The earth is made new before us. We have the choice to be made new as well.

What Makes a Woman "Phenomenal"

Written by Kemi Searcy

What makes a lady to be considered “phenomenal”?  Is it the one with a sassy personality? A fine stature?  A beautiful face?  A cut above the rest of us?

What If I Do This?

Written by Sam Whatley

Is curiosity a good thing? Is it wise to try out new ideas? Sometimes.

When I was about ten years old our science class studied the way mold spores grow in damp, dark places. The teacher suggested that we put some water on a slice of bread and put it in a dark place for a week. We were to check on it each day and record our observations.

Probaton Scubalon

Written by Tony Butler

John 10:15  “As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.”

 

If you look up the Greek word for sheep you will see the word “probaton”. Sheep, especially lambs, are cute animals. We love to see paintings of sheep/lambs in the arms of the Good Shepherd Jesus and imagine ourselves as one of His little loved ones safely resting in His bosom. Surrounding Jesus in the paintings are clean adoring sheep that are being gently led to still waters and green pastures. How we love the ideal.

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.
