'Double-mindedness' part of faith

Lent started recently and we're well on our way to the celebration of Easter, but there still are many Christians who struggle with faith issues in their lives. We live in an age of fast-track mentality, media frenzies and "hurried child syndrome." What do we find so attractive about this type of lifestyle, quick results and instant gratification?

Struggles with faith common this time of year

Last week, we observed Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent in the Christian calendar.

Last week, sweethearts around the nation celebrated the most romantic of holidays - Valentine's Day. The origin of St. Valentine's Day is uncertain.

The emperor supposedly believed married men made poor soldiers, according to www.linguatics.com.

Identify yourself as a believer

My wife and I took a short trip to the state of Maine early last summer. We didn't prepare ourselves for the cool evenings with the clothing we packed. So the second day we were there, we went to the store and bought a couple of jackets with the state name and emblem on them.

Practice God's love toward all

Well, Valentine's Day has come and gone. Am I writing those words a week too late for you, guys? Should I have warned you last week? Are you deep in the dog house? Or did you come through with flying colors?
