Devotion for Aug. 8, 2010 Beauty pageants, Disney princesses, and Barbie: in recent generations, they’ve fueled the ire of some and sparked cultural debate. The ideal of feminine beauty plastered on magazine covers and media screens seems dangerously unattainable, and considering the power of digital photo enhancement, altogether false. The...

Question and Answer

June 1, 2005

My question is based on Romans 1:20: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible attributes—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Is it true that people living in the past, or at the present in remote parts of the world, can be saved...

Silence and Spiritual Walk: Many Words Are Foolish

June 15, 2018

Silence and Spiritual Walk: Many Words Are Foolish The term dorbellist has fallen out of use, but lexicographer Kory Stamper of Merriam-Webster would like to revive it. This word means “fool,” specifically the kind of fool who appears to be smart but actually isn’t. Solomon seems to have exactly this kind of fool in mind in today’s reading.

God’s Image in the World

December 2, 2017

God’s Image in the World Icons are images or symbols that represent something larger than themselves.

August 22, 2006

Devotion for August 22, 2006 Chapters 16 and 17 in Luke are loaded with difficult and sometimes controversial passages.

Final Words

May 18, 2020

A person’s last recorded words can be fascinating because they give a window into what people truly believe. The philosopher Karl Marx is purported to have ended his life by saying, “Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough.” Theoretical physicist Richard Feynman’s final statement was, “I’d hate to die twice. It’s so boring.” While...

Question and Answer

March 1, 2018

In Romans 7, Paul talks about his struggle: when he wants to be good, he does just the opposite. Whenever I read this passage, I think that if Paul can’t live the kind of godly life he desires, how in the world can I? What he really wants to do he cannot, and what he hates doing, he does anyway. This doesn’t inspire me! What am I supposed...
