November 23, 1927. The dirty walls of the place of execution resounded with the shout, “Viva Cristo Rey!

If Christ is Our King

I don’t know who first uttered these words but they set forth a truly important bit of wisdom: If there is nothing above us we will be consumed by all that is around us.

God Encourages Us To Jump Into Life

Do You Not Know That You Are A Temple Of God?

To the Jews of Jesus’ time, the word “temple” referred to the House of Yahweh, the place where God dwells. To the Jews, God’s dwelling place was within the Holy of Holies, the inner sanctuary within their Temple. But what Paul is telling his readers, in his letter to the Corinthians, is that we are […]

Prosperity Preaching Is Not Christian

Pastor Joel Osteen’s TV ad announcing his new show on Sirius Radio begins with the promise, “We can have victory every single day.” Next come scenes of his pastoral team on stage during a church service, followed by a long shot of the congregation that looks as if it was filmed in the Super Bowl […]
