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. It’s a matter of them mishandling a difficult situation which He has flung on them. In his trial, Job didn’t focus in on secondary causes—the Sabeans, the Chaldeans, the fire which fell from heaven, or the great wind which came from across the wilderness (c.f. Job 1:14–19). Rather, he kept his eyes on the character of God, who for His Own eternal purposes allows human suffering.

Why Canít 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; Whatís 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. Brigham Young University was strategically placed in the Top 10, enjoying a high level of success, which was threatened by the suspension of one of its star players, center Brandon Davies. The story is quite familiar now – Davies was kicked off the BYU team not because of theft, public drunkenness, academics, or drug usage – no, Brandon Davies was dismissed because of…

Are We Making Disciples?

Written by Dr. Lawrence H. Phillips

The resurrected Jesus, in Matthew 28:19, said “As you go, make disciples…” Two questions come to mind. 1. How well is the church making disciples? 2. How do we know if a disciple is made?

Why Retirement Before College?

Question: I noticed that your Baby Steps list puts saving for retirement before saving for your kid’s college fund. Sending your kids to college would come first on the timeline, so why do you suggest this?

On Cancer and MarriageÖ

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.

Celebrating God's Word

Written by Bob Crittendon

Over 400 years ago, a group of theologians gathered at the request of King James I of England to craft an English translation of the Bible that would be available on a widespread basis. The King James Version has become one of the most influential books of all time, containing the truth of the Scriptures, and also certain phrases which have become part of the common English language. This year, we celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the culmination of that 7-year process to translate the Scriptures, resulting in what we know as the King James Bible, in 1611.

Comparing Yourself to Others

Written by Brenda Payne

Where do you feel insecure? How do you derive confidence? What do you use to measure yourself? Where do you find your value? Do you compare yourself to your mom, sister, co-worker or best friend? If so, how do you compare? As women, we tend to measure ourselves against each other. We examine and take note of our similarities and differences on a daily basis and in a myriad of areas. Think about a few areas where women tend to compare themselves to others.

Have You Crossed the River?

Written by Kim Hendrix

The Jordan River was at flood stage when the water suddenly parted, allowing the Israelites to cross over into the Promised Land to “take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.” (Joshua 1:11)  Imagine standing on the brink of a swollen river—dangerous and ominous—knowing that’s all that stands between you and the Promised Land (all that stands between you and the very life God wants you to have). Would you cross it?  Would you know how?
