Was Jesus Ugly?

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Was Jesus Ugly? Be honest, doesn’t that question make you cringe?  We don’t want to call Jesus ugly.  That would be an insult, wouldn’t it?  Neither do we want an ugly Jesus…right?  How many movies have an ugly Jesus?  Even Hollywood prefers a good-looking Jesus, and we know how most on the left feel about […]

Barriers and Balance

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Think about the following observation: A barrier to true biblical interpretation is blindness to influences by our social, political, spiritual and personal environment.

On Purpose! – Imagine An Event

Imagine an event so monumental, that it redefines time. The power performing the event transcends human experience causing even time itself to be rearranged.

Wonders from the Word – Repentance without Consequence

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Repentance without consequence is what we all want. Repentance without having to reap what we have sown sounds wonderful and looks forward to the future. Yet that is not God’s way. How many more would confess if they knew there would be no consequence? Is the reality of our sin heavier because of the consequences? […]
