Faith Column: Thankful For Christ’s blood

Without the blood of Jesus, mankind has absolutely no standing with God. It is Christ’s blood that has been offered as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. Through faith in His blood, any person can enter into God’s presence without a sense of shame, guilt, or inferiority. Christ’s blood is redeeming in nature. Wherever sin has gone and brought damage and destruction, Christ’s blood has gone and brought redemption to life and righteousness.

Faith Column: Think, pray, give thanks

As I write this, the election results have been published. Perhaps you are excited, pleased with the results. Perhaps you are less than pleased.

This presidential election cycle has proven to be, for me, the most difficult election I have experienced in terms of for whom to cast my vote.

Faith Column: All about the 'God-things'

I have an admission to make today. Not an admission of wrongdoing specifically, but an admission of the way that I have lived my life to date. That admission is that sometimes, and more often than I care to truly admit, I need to be smacked upside the head with a two-by-four to make me understand what is right in front of my eyes.
