The Value of Faith

Written by Bob Crittendon

What do you think is the value to society of the practice of religion?  Could you place a “dollar value” on it?

Well, two researchers have attempted to do just that. Brian Grim of Georgetown University and his daughter, Melissa Grim of Newseum Institute, have released a study that has calculated three estimates of religion’s socio-economic value to the United States, according to an article on the Christianity Today website.

Helped Up

Written by Bob Crittendon

The Olympic Games in Rio are now history, full of memorable moments and tremendous triumphs.  Perhaps one of the most memorable came in a 5,000 meter qualifying event in track and field.  American runner Abbey D’Agostino and New Zealander Nikki Hamblin tripped over one another on the track and both fell to the ground.

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.

More Words

Written by Bob Crittendon

In Matthew 12:35-37, Jesus challenges us to make good use of the words we speak: “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” (NKJV)

Prayer...A Powerful Weapon

Written by Bob Crittendon

In Ephesians 6: 10-12, we can read this exhortation: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (NKJV)

What Are Your "Essentials"?

Written by Bob Crittendon

The image is clear from John chapter 15...Jesus said in verse 5: “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (NKJV)

A Perilous Path

Written by Bob Crittendon

The Bible warns us against empty pursuits - the thirst to have more money, to gain more material resources, and perhaps to “hit the jackpot” in life. 

Proverbs 13:7 offers: “There is one who makes himself rich, yet has nothing; And one who makes himself poor, yet has great riches.” (NKJV).  In Proverbs 13:11 (NKJV), the Bible says: “Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished, But he who gathers by labor will increase.”

Righteousness Exalts a Nation

Written by Bob Crittendon

God wants us to be wise in Him, and to live according to His principles. That can enhance our individual lives and contribute to a more righteous society, if significant numbers of believers take that to heart.  Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.” (NKJV)

Hungry?

Written by Bob Crittenden

This is the beginning of a new year, and by the time you have acquired a copy of this magazine and come across this column, you may have already made and broken your New Year’s resolutions.  I certainly hope not, but a Forbes story from 2013 indicated that some 40% of Americans make such resolutions, but only 8% keep them, according to research from the University of Scranton cited in the article.
