There’s part of this story of the fiery furnace that I’d always missed. There was one question upon which everything else hinged – not only in this story but also in our lives. Do you know what that question is?
Daniel and his friends were strangers in a strange land and were surrounded by paganism. How did they deal with standing up for God in that setting, and how can we stand up for God in an increasingly offensive world?
Why can’t a Christian sue another Christian? And can a Christian take a non-Christian to court? And how should a lawyer who is Christian handle lawsuits?
Since God reconciled us to Himself in Christ Jesus, He now calls us to be reconcilers. What does that mean with regard to conflicts in our lives and in our church?
Too many churches are caught up in conflict because they’ve forgotten who is truly the enemy. How do we prevent conflict from ruling the church? Choose the correct weapons! Check out these thoughts from Scott Jewell, our Family Minister.
Conflicts often arise when people forget who’s in charge. So, who is in charge and how should we use that knowledge in how we respond to our earthly authorities?
We live in a nation of “rights” but if my rights conflict with yours we can end up in court, in a church split or in a family division. How do we avoid letting our desire to defend our rights ruin our lives?
Much of the conflict in our lives comes from “a failure to communicate”. But it isn’t that we fail to make ourselves clear. The problem is often that our communication is corrupt. Do you know what that means and do you know how to fix that?
The Lord’s Prayer tells us God is our “Heavenly Father”. That implies that God uses the better tendencies of earthly fathers to communicate who He is. So, what are the traits of decent Earthly fathers?
