Dear Roger, Why are there so many false religions, and how do I know which ones are real? I hear a lot of singers, movies and writers talking about ancient gods or mythology stories. For example, Rain Man is the nickname for Amun-Re , or Re, who was Horus Re , or Horus the Egyptian Sun God. I saw that Amun means “let it be”. And “contentment” or “forgiven...

Twitter now has 554,750,000 active registered users. 58 million tweets fill cyberspace every day. I can’t imagine life without twitter. Twitter’s role in the communications revolution is obvious, whether it be used by churches or in political revolutions taking place around the world (Iran, for example). But I want to make a more personal case: Twitter makes me a better...

"The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them" (Proverbs 12:6). This is a sobering scripture, but aligns with many others. Paul prayed that the love of the Philippians would "abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight." Therefore, when we love people, we are to love them with knowledge and insight, not in a...

God's yes in salvation is found in Jesus Christ. God's hearing of your prayers is found yes in Jesus Christ. God's ability to sustain you in suffering finds its yes in Jesus Christ. Everywhere else the answer is no , not yes , which is why we cling to Jesus, pursue Jesus, preach Jesus, exalt Jesus, make much of Jesus. He is the author and the perfecter of our...

Scripture: Ephesians 3:1, Acts 21:21-22, Colossians 1:27, Colossians 2:2-3, 1 Corinthians 4:16-17
Paul teaches in Philippians 2 that God's children are to be positive, not grumbling or doubting so that they shine like lights in the midst of a wicked, dark world. Christian's faith and peace should be contagious. Paul doesn't mind his suffering in jail if his spiritual children are ready for the return of Christ. Preached at Cornerstone Church, Simi Valley under the...

Scripture: Philippians 2:14-18
God's big heart is passion-filled with love for His creatures. He's called us to be an integral part of His redemptive plan. what fences do you need to jump to reach others for Christ? What cubicles do you need to poke your head around? What school desks do you need to stop hiding behind? What empty chairs do you need to see?

Scripture: Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8
“Preach the gospel at all times and, if necessary, use words.” This classic quote, misattributed to Saint Francis of Assisi, is both clever and catchy. It just isn’t biblical. Evangelism—communicating the good news of King Jesus—always requires words. Christians are called to adorn the gospel with actions ( Titus 2:10 ), to be sure, but our actions are not the gospel. No...
