God wants us to be real

Writing this column is always a joy for me. I consider it a privilege to share the gospel with others, and I do not take it lightly when people take the time to listen to what I have to say. As a result, I am thrilled when I receive feedback regarding something I have written or shared. It lets me know that people understand what I am saying and that it has touched their life in some way.

Don't talk yourself out of going to church

I hear it all the time: "I am spiritual. I just don't go to church." Or, "I believe in God. I just can't handle how church people act." They are some of the most common explanations people offer to me when I ask them about their spiritual lives. Another version of this is: "Why do I need to go to church? God loves me as I am. I can worship Him (Actually, they seldom use that phrase.) and I can experience Him anywhere."

Make the most important decision of your life

God has the answers for you

Man, it seems, has always been looking for answers since the beginning of time. Some have sailed the oceans to search for new lands just to get an answer to the question, "What is out there?" Others have searched the world over to find the answer to the questions of life.
