Can the Bible Be Trusted?

TRUTH is a word that has all but lost its meaning in today’s society. Truth is a fact or belief that is accepted as true. A fact is something that is indisputably the case. So if truth is based upon something that is indisputable—truth cannot be relative. The Economist is a magazine similar to TIME…

God’s Grace in my Testimony

When I was about ten years of age, to my primarily Catholic family’s chagrin, my father decided that we would try another church. He, my mother and brother and I piled into the car and went to a Baptist church for the first time since I’d been born. We went early and I recall attending Sunday…

Sorry About That!

To all of my email subscribers you’ve just received a piece of fiction from my other blog. Part of a challenge series my Co author and I do. My apologies! :) Much love,  Steve Beaulieu

Why Doesn’t God Make It Easier to Believe in Him?

So often we find ourselves in situations where we are praying and believing for something great that would be a powerful testimony to nonbelievers. I remember praying for someone’s healing, knowing that if God healed them, they would believe in the Jesus that performed the healing. Or did I? After praying for this guy, and…

God is a Rescuer, Not a Punisher

With superheroes as big as they are right now, nearly everyone can relate to the vast difference between the styles of the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, Matt Murdock… protector of the city and rescuer of those who find themselves in dire places… and The Punisher, Frank Castle, vigilante killer and dealer of swift and merciless…

The Ugliness Inside

I can think back at all the horrible things I’ve done in my life.  I feel like I could watch them like a movie playing in my mind.  Stealing, lying, cheating… lustful thoughts, murderous thoughts, you name it, I can see it, can you see yours? If you answered yes to this question, it’s hard…

The Cross of Christ

Spring is the time of year for regeneration and restoration.  Growth and regrowth flood the season almost as much as the rains that come to bring life to the ground.  This week, Holy Week, is often a time for candy and easter egg dying.  Cute bunnies and fluffy chickens cover our social media feeds.  Much…

Biblical Discipline

  1 Corinthians 5:1-5 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. 2And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing…

New Testament Giving: To Tithe or Not to Tithe?

Before we dig into the scriptures or laws and rules let’s start with one simple truth: THAT WHICH YOU LOVE, YOU WILL SUPPORT. This is true in every area of your life but today we are specifically talking about your home church. Whether or not we believe that the New Testament teaches tithing doesn’t change the…

Guard Your Heart above all else.

What would happen if we guarded our hearts the same way we guard our stomach (or our hips)? We count calories and we do fad diets as well as “get pumped up” at the gym. We have become so concerned with what we put into our bodies that we don’t have time to care what we put into our hearts. Jesus said in Matthew 15:11 – it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”

GUEST BLOGGER: Jordan Beaulieu

From my few years of working in the food service industry, I’m no stranger to the feeling of being overwhelmed. Countless Friday nights of too many tables too close together, angry customers and a kitchen constantly running out of everything from ketchup to baked potatoes was enough to send me over the edge. It was…

God is My Crutch

As a Christian you will hear a million insults and stereotypes over the years the Lord gives you on the earth.  It used to be that “Jesus Freak” was an insulting term, but since the 90’s, when DC Talk released their hit song by the same name, it is a badge of honor.  You might…
