Living as a Boundary Pioneer

Written by Bob Crittendon

 

There has been debate about the compatibility of faith and science. If anyone perceives that there are relatively few Christian believers working in the scientific fields, then a new survey conducted by sociologist Elaine Howard Ecklund and her colleagues at Rice University and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) might call for a rethinking of that position.  Christianity Today reported on the results of the survey of more than 10,000 people, including 574 self-identified as scientists, who responded to a 75-question survey. Among the scientists, 17 percent said the term “evangelical” describes them “somewhat” or “very well,” compared to 23 percent of all respondents.

Shining Like Stars in a Dark World

Written by Bob Crittendon

The Lost Are Found

Written by Bob Crittendon

A few weeks ago, a significant number of Christians were focused on an unusual set of circumstances involving renowned Bible teacher and Experiencing God author Dr. Henry Blackaby.  On a particular Thursday afternoon, he was on his way to pick up his wife, Marilynn, from an appointment, and was reported to be missing – for 29 hours.  Indications are that at some point he had suffered a heart attack while driving.  He apparently became confused, lost his sense of direction, and attempted unsuccessfully to find his way home.  He ultimately was pulled over by police near Tifton, Georgia, about 150 miles south of Atlanta.

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?”

Marriage Benefits

Written by Bob Crittendon

 

Family life is of great benefit to us - and we recognize that a home where God is worshipped and honored and His principles are placed in motion can produce a high degree of security and satisfaction.  I am so grateful to celebrate this month 23 years of marriage to my lovely, wonderful, and Godly wife, Beth.  We have seen the Lord bless our union and our family in amazing ways, for which I am deeply thankful!
