Self-Help?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="2468" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The gospel is not self-help! God is not even remotely into self-help. If we had the power to help ourselves, then God would have been an idiot to let us crucify him. We couldn’t help ourselves after we sinned in Eden, we have failed to help ourselves since then, and we will [...]

Self

We’ve really got to get over our self. Self walks a fence rail, leaning one moment this way toward God’s kingdom and another moment toward our broken and irreparable world.

The world’s not ending quite yet

CNN wrote a piece today about a psychic who claimed back in 2008 that “around 2020, a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments. Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as [...]
