When $1.5 Billion is Not Enough To Live On

  Bling bling. Cha-ching. The largest Powerball jackpot in U.S. history has reached $1.5 billion. To say this is a lot of money would be an astronomical understatement. This is more than a lot of money. This is a normalization termination contract. I ____________________, with the winning Powerball ticket, hereby agree to terminate the current […]

What Jesus Would Look Like In 2016

What would Jesus look like if he were here today? I’ve always wondered about this question. In my opinion, he’d be a 5’10” bearded homeless man in his early 30s. Up top, he’d don a plain white T-shirt; below he’d have khaki shorts a few shades darker than his “yeast-from-the-mid-east” complexion.  He’d carry a 70L […]

Did Jesus Claim To Be The Son of God?

Editor’s Note: Recently we received a question from one of our viewers asking if Jesus ever directly claimed to be the Son of God. Their understanding was that Jesus never claimed that title but, rather, others added it to him. We responded and felt, in case anyone else was curious about this issue, we would […]

The Seventh Man

She had NO IDEA what she was doing. It was as if she was interviewing men, except it wasn’t for a job.  She wanted to find out what their dreams and aspirations were, and if they were more interested in her faith than her figure. Five times she’d been proven wrong – the men were […]

When they seized him, he fled naked, leaving his garment behind. – Mark 14:51-52 Recently, we received a question from a viewer regarding the passage above. Baffled as to its meaning, she asked why it was included in Mark’s Gospel, saying “I do […]

Doctrine

A couple summers ago, a friend from my dorm agreed to spend some time studying the Bible with me. He was from a different faith background, so I was excited to share with him some Biblical teachings that had really blessed my life. We started meeting once a week and, honestly, I thought I was […]

I AM: What’s in a Name?

What’s in a name? Well, what if I introduced myself to you as, “my name is a man”? You would probably add, “Yes, but what is your name?” This is the setting that I would like us to experience now. The greatest prophet of the Hebrew religion is Moses. What Muhammad is for Muslims, Moses […]

Increase My Faith

A few days ago we were asked a very important question, “How can we develop our faith in God?” It’s a fundamental question, but the answer might not come too easily. So, here is the result of our digging into the Word for the answer. In Luke 17:5 we read about the apostles coming to […]

When Christ was in the Wilderness

The Word of God is light unto this world. Through the hum of mealtime prayers, devotionals, and Sabbath sermons, His words are sweet on our lips. Nevertheless, sometimes, it seems something is missing. The picture can be fuller. Constant attachment to the sound of verbal communication, to the certainty of light, uncovers our deeper fear […]

The God Box

So many times we ask for what we think we need, instead of asking for God’s will for us. How often do we say: “God, either I need you to do this…, or this?..” Such an approach leaves no room for there to be an entirely different way that God could provide for our needs. […]
