Male and Female He Created Them

In Genesis chapters one and two, it is undeniable that man and woman were created in God's image, as stated in Gen. 1:27, "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." Neither man nor woman lost their "image-bearing" capabilities in the… Continue reading Male and Female He Created Them

New Testament Women

In taking a look at the Biblical theology of women, it is easy to see that Jesus valued women and their role in the kingdom of God. During Jesus' ministry, he broke all kinds of cultural norms in society. Women in the Ancient Near East did not get a lot of respect and weren't allowed… Continue reading New Testament Women

Faith, Hope, and Love – Part 3

Love never fails … The Apostle Paul encourages the church to pursue faith, hope, and love, but love is the greatest. Why would love be the greatest? Faith seems to be pretty important; after all, we cannot achieve salvation without it, and without hope, we would be flat-out miserable. Why then would Paul tell us… Continue reading Faith, Hope, and Love – Part 3

Faith, Hope, and Love – Part 2

2 Corinthians 1:7 “And our hope for you [our joyful and confident expectation of good for you] is ever unwavering (assured and unshaken) …” (AMPC) We use the word hope in three different ways: Hope is wanting something good in the future.

Faith, Hope, and Love – Part 1

Faith, the evidence of things, hoped for … Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."N (KJV) The word translated "evidence" is the Greek word elengchos, which often refers to an argument or case. Faith is an argument for that which is not yet seen. Of course, faith doesn't prove something that is not yet seen—only the One who… Continue reading Faith, Hope, and Love – Part 1

A glorified body doesn’t require exercise!

I'm hoping my glorified body will not age, wrinkly, sag, bloat, or deteriorate. I can eat whatever I want and still maintain a healthy weight. It would be great if a glorified body could be like the bionic woman Lindsey Wagner played in that 70's tv show; she had a supersonic hearing, extreme strength in… Continue reading A glorified body doesn’t require exercise!

To Judge or Not to Judge – Part 3

As Christians, we often hear, "You clearly are not a Christian because Jesus told us not to judge." Statements like this reflect our culture. Judging is wrong, and if you do, you are labeled intolerant. Am I not allowed to have an opinion? Clearly, others have theirs. The things we are allowed to judge and… Continue reading To Judge or Not to Judge – Part 3

To Judge or Not to Judge – Part 2

It happened when I posted something to social media expressing an opinion about a current polarizing topic. It happened again when I just offered another point of view on someone else post. "Christians are not to pass judgments, only state the truths," one person commented. "Christ taught us to LOVE EVERYONE. We should be slow… Continue reading To Judge or Not to Judge – Part 2

To Judge or Not to Judge – Part 1

Every topic is polarizing in our current culture. I hear my brothers and sisters in Christ judging each other, and it grieves my heart. Maybe it's more the emotions driving the judgment that concerns me. People are afraid because they feel that Christians are losing ground in our culture, point taken, but God is sovereign… Continue reading To Judge or Not to Judge – Part 1
