“All That Glitters…”

Written by Bob Crittendon


It had been described as a “mirror-like bauble of a hotel,” the most visible presence on the skyline of a city that is experiencing economic decline and dramatic job loss, propped up by an industry that has a dubious premise - build up the false hope of patrons, making some winners while creating a mass number of losers.

7 Lies Christians Believe

Written by Bob Crittendon


We have to be so careful that we do not buy in to lies that creep into our own consciousness that would discourage us, distort our view of God and His faithfulness, and make us unproductive in our Christian life.  Sometimes we will fall victim to the aggressive lies that the enemy, who is termed by Jesus as the “father of lies,” will place in our minds.  Other times we believe the press that we write about ourselves willingly -- ultimately, the origin is the same, the delivery method is similar -- in our minds.  We make a conscious choice to walk in a false spiritual reality.

Private Practice. Public Faith.

Written by Bob Crittendon



There is a direct relationship between the outward expression of our walk with Jesus and the private time we spend with Him.  I came across the findings of a LifeWay Research survey from the fall of 2012 which indicates we as believers could do better on our personal, private encounters with Christ as we engage His Word.

Praise Can Set You Free

Written by Bob Crittendon

Can our praises set us free?  Undoubtedly...look at the story of Paul and Silas in Acts 16, as they sang in the midnight hour - in prison.  We’re told that they were praying and singing hymns, when there was a great earthquake and the prison doors were opened.   The keeper of the prison was distraught, but Paul assured him no one had left.  The man then asked Paul and Silas what he must do to be saved.   They told him to believe on Jesus and he, along with his household, would be saved.

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

In Philippians 2:15, the apostle Paul cautions believers in Christ to live in a manner that reflects His nature, encouraging us to become “blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.” (NKJV)

Science, Order and the Creation of the Universe

Written by Bob Crittendon

The results are in and the 2013 Word of the Year, according to the dictionary people at Merriam-Webster, is “science” (“cognitive” was second), according to a CNN story, which reports that over at the Oxford American Dictionaries US, the top word is “selfie”, the result of the word’s growing usage and digital fame.  Its U.S. counterpart picked “science” primarily based on numbers on its website.  Merriam-Webster reportedly looked at the most searched-for words on its online dictionary, as well as those that showed the biggest increase in the number of look-ups.
