Listen to God in order to obey Him

God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden to tend to it, guard it and keep it. The Lord God told the man, "You may freely eat of every tree of the Garden, but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and Blessing and Calamity, you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die." - Genesis 2:15-17

Get a new attitude for the new year

For many of us, this past year has been a struggle. We've struggled to keep our families together, we've struggled to pay our bills and we've struggled to find happiness in the middle of our storms. But as we grow from day to day, we understand that our struggles are simply a part of our living, and your attitude about the situation is what allows you to see the silver lining that surrounds every cloudy moment in life.

How can I be a Christian?

Are we making the right preparations for heaven?

Can we live a better life? Could it be that we need a better job,or more money? Perhaps we need new friends? Our society seeks the better life in these and other things. Now there is nothing wrong with a better job, making more money and having new friends, unless they are all we live for.

Accept God's gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts and during the Christmas season, many of them are exchanged. People will go into debt to buy gifts for their children, families and friends. Often, caught up in the hype of gift-giving, we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day that we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Why "American Sniper" is not "just a movie"

"American Sniper," starring Bradley Cooper as a patriotic sniper serving in the Iraq War, is not “just a movie." It serves as a chilling reminder of the realities of war — a war that remains an afterthought for many Americans who weren't directly involved in the action — and the hurtful feelings many Americans still hold towards Islam.
