I understand their reasoning, but I must respectfully...

I’m confused about the difference between the soul and spirit. Is the spirit about me, or does it have to do with God’s spirit in me?

When the Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg,...

In the New Testament, early believers tended to meet in homes. Is that a paradigm for the contemporary church as well?

Why did God strike Uzzah dead when he reached out to steady the ark of God after the oxen stumbled (2 Sam. 6:6–7)? He was only trying to help.

My adult children have stopped attending church. We have invited them to attend with us, and we have sent them biblical reasons why they should be in church. They still do not want to go to church, even though they say that they believe in God. What can we do? They say that they can watch television preachers in their homes. They prefer the...

We live in a culture where there is a sense of individual independence. We want to call the shots and be the people who are free to be what we want to be.
