Written by Sam Whatley

In the Book of Exodus there are dozens of commandments. One that catches my attention is Exodus 22:21, “Do not mistreat an alien or oppress him for you were aliens in Egypt” (NIV).

Offense Against the "Almighty": Can You Afford It?

Written by Kemi Searcy

In 2014, the movie “God’s Not Dead” was released. The movie’s lead character was Josh Wheaton, an evangelical college student. He enrolled in a philosophy class taught by Professor Jeffrey Radisson, an atheist. Radisson demanded that students sign a declaration that “God is dead” in order to pass the course. Josh is the only student who refuses to sign.

RRJ:  Even though you were exposed to Christ as a young child, late in high school God began speaking into your heart that He wanted a deeper relationship with you.  How did that happen and how did you respond?

 

Katrina:  I grew up in a very ritual-based church, also attending that church’s school from kindergarten through 9th grade. I practiced those rituals “religiously”, but felt God was calling me in a different direction. So, the summer after I graduated from high school, I was baptized and began attending a new church. It was then that I felt I could truly be expressive with my faith. As I studied the Bible, I realized Christ and the unwavering word of God was all that mattered. I had a relationship and not a religion!

Married for God by Christopher Ash

It’s not like we’re hurting for books on marriage. In fact, there may be more Christian books on marriage than on any topic besides prayer. This means that any new book has to be awfully good to stand out from an already-crowded field. It was pure joy, then, to read Christopher Ash’s Married for God: Making Your Marriage the Best It Can Be and see it do exactly that. It is one of the very best books on marriage I have ever read—and I’ve read a lot of them.

The Most Important Win

Written by Dr. Larry Bryars

Autumn has always been my favorite season.  There are many reasons…the weather gets cooler, the leaves are changing, and it’s football season.  Already some of my favorite teams have won and lost, and we have only just begun.  

Q.  Our daughter is a special needs child, who doctors say will live about half as long as the average adult. There’s also a good chance she will be under our care her entire life. We just finished Baby Step 3 of your plan, so we have all of our debt paid off except for the house, and we have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses saved. We have health insurance, too. However, we were wondering how the situation with our little girl affects retirement planning and college funding?

Liberty

Written by Bob Crittendon

News sources have been calling it a Big Brother bill, and the implications are chilling. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed legislation that tightens restrictions on missionary activity and evangelism, according to a report on the Christianity Today website.

How Important is Sleep to Well-Being?

Written by Nancy Thomas

As Americans, we seem to pride ourselves on how little sleep we need and how busy we are!  However, we were created to have downtime to sleep, reflect, pray, to commune with and seek wisdom from God.  Even God rested!

 

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.Genesis 2:2

Convicted Both Ways

Written by Sam Whatley

When we accept Christ, our lives change. For some, this change is in stages over time. For others it is literally overnight. So, some folks can pinpoint the date they were saved and others cannot.
