On Voting – part two in a series – by Pastor Tedd

Published February 26, 2016

Where Is Our Citizenship? Last month I began this series on voting. A few people have asked questions about voting and so this is my attempt to try and shed some biblical light on the subject. Last month I focused on what we DO know. {Click Here To Read Part One} This month I want us to think about the long and short of things. Full disclosure: I’ve been aided in my thinking via John Piper. Let’s look at what Paul tells people about marriage in I Cor. 7:29-31: But this I say, brethren, the time has been shortened, so that […]

On Voting – part one in a series – by Pastor Tedd

Doing What We Do Know “Every four years, Americans reveal that they are looking for a savior king.” – Robert Rothwell I recently received an e-mail from a believer asking for insight about how to think about the presidential election. I’ve received permission from the person who contacted me to share their question. Here was the essence of their question: I know our hope is not in this world but since our system gives us opportunity to vote and there are going to be Supreme Court Justice seats come up I thought it wise to pay attention and to vote […]

“I Feel, I Think, I Believe” by Tim Challies

“The Normal Battle With Bitterness” by Eric Davis

Published February 10, 2016

(ARTICLE SOURCE: http://thecripplegate.com/the-normal-battle-with-bitterness/#more-38687) It’s inevitable. People are going to hurt us. Even those close to you. In fact, perhaps especially those close to you. With every hurt, there is the potential to wake the bitterness monster. He’s a light sleeper. And he’s more clever than we think. Even a small relationship scuffle is enough to arouse him into action. We mustn’t underestimate him. Bitterness: hurt incurred from either real or perceived offense, gone unchecked, and allowed to continue by failure to apply biblical principles and thinking to the hurt, resulting in hatred and resentment. Bitterness is the quick fix for the flesh. […]
