Your Ministry and Religious Liberty

Each day on "The Garlow Perspective," speaker Jim Garlow speaks out boldly, on what he describes as issues of righteousness: biblical values of religious freedom, pro-life, biblical marriage between a man and a woman, to name a few.  The Garlow Perspective tackles the cultural issues of the day in order to underscore biblical truth in a time where too often truth is exchanged for tolerance and a lack of courage.

As a Pastor, Jim is also advocating for churches and wanting to be sure that their ministry is being protected from current threats.  Many pastors fear the government will force ...

Restoring All Things

There are so many evil things happening in our world today that cause many to ask, "Where is God?"  How easy it is to get discouraged by the news headlines and feel powerless.  Maybe you are feeling this same way--that all is lost when it comes to redeeming our culture for Christ.

In a recent radio interview with BreakPoint®'s John Stonestreet, he addressed this very issue and reminded listeners that "the thing that brings us hope is the fact that Jesus Christ has risen from the dead.  Jesus has conquered sin and death!"

John went on to say that ...

How to be Like the First Christians

TSC_Easter_Carter-Conlon"Are the things you're living for worth Christ's dying for?"

--Pastor Oscar Muriu, Nairobi Chapel

My inhale caught in my throat when I heard our guest preacher pose this question in church yesterday.  It prompted many follow-up questions of internal self-reflection ... What things am I living for?  How would I define the things Jesus lived for?  Does my list match His?  Why have I never asked myself these questions?

In his continued discussion of living bravely vs. living safely, Pastor Oscar reminded the congregation that Jesus' disciples never prayed for persecution to cease.  Conversely, they prayed for enough ...

Evolving Technology and the Never Changing Gospel

I use to work summers at my dad’s TV stores.  We sold everything from TVs with picture tubes to solid state, from console TVs to portables.

Today, while not a fully fledged tech geek, I am fascinated with all the tech advancements which have changed the world . . . technology which has made the world a smaller place.

In my Sunday School Class this past weekend, technology helped us connect with a dear sister in Christ serving in Vietnam.  We Face-Timed Angela and studied a devotional lesson together - her sitting across the world in her living in Vietnam and our class ...

“It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This!”

Ever said that?

I’m sure, in many ways and at many times in your life, that has been true.  Like relaxing at the beach, watching the perfect sunset—a sky painted in deep hues of orange, blue, red and violet—“It doesn’t get any better than this!”  Or you might have uttered that phrase while enjoying a superb meal, savoring every delicious morsel.   

I confess the catchphrase has passed my lips more times than I deserve!  Most recently, it was while playing golf on the most amazing course I’ve ...

The Miraculous Truth

I do love my evening walks especially now when daylight lingers a little longer.  And those evening walks provide me an opportunity to listen to my favorite Bible teaching program, "Grace to You®," on my local radio station.

This past week, I listened as John MacArthur finished up his series on How to Study the Bible.  While most of the series covered the why and how, what was most revealing was learning about who can study the Bible.  Honestly, I had never contemplated that truth.  John summarized it well when he said, "You've got to be the ...
