If you went to a war-torn part of the world and asked for a definition of peace, chances are someone would stare at you with glazed, bloodshot eyes and say peace means laying the weapons down, sending the troops home, and putting the rifles back in their racks.  They might even say,  “What else ...

What  do  you  do  with  the  highly  charged  feelings  that  fly  around  in  your  spirit  when  you  feel  God  has  let  you  down?  Some  people,  in  an  effort  to  be  “good  Christians,”  feel  they  need  to  protect  God.  They  deny  their  p...

We  can  hurt  and  alienate  our  friends  without  even  realizing  it.  When  we  allow  pride,  anger,  and  jealousy  to  creep  into  our  lives,  our  friendship  will  inevitably  suffer.  But  the  Bible  can  help  us  spot  and  overcome  these  invis...

Many times in the Old Testament we read that God accused the people of Israel of being hard-hearted. In the New Testament...
