Question:How do you witness to a Muslim? Answer:The same way you witness to anyone. Like the Apostle Paul’s great example, you start where THEY are at.To the Corinthians, Paul didn’t start spouting a bunch of Jewish history, prophecies and facts that had no clue about. He start with the SIN they experienced in this culture and the “gods” they worshipped: gross immorality, paganism, etc … and convicted them of their sin. To the Jews, he started with Scripture and expounded because they already had a Biblical worldview. Forty years ago in America, we would start by simply talking about “Christian” things: salvation, church, Jesus, etc. That is no longer effective because that foundation doesn’t exist anymore in our country. So now we have to approach […]
(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Psalm 19:11b – … And in keeping them there is great reward. (NKJV)This series of lessons looks at the life most Christians want, many Christians talk about and some Christians experience brief glimpses of… but few attain on a daily, consistent, long-term basis. It is a life that is:Refreshed and re-energized, full of wisdom, joyful, enlightened, consistent and righteous, rewarding and fulfilled So far we have learned that:God’s law (His rule of action) converts (restores, refreshes) the soul because knowing and keeping His law leads to a fruitful, guiltless life of fellowship with God. (v. 7a)God’s testimony (His declaration and evidence of facts), especially of Jesus Christ, imparts wisdom to the simple (foolish; anyone […]
NOTE: For a couple of years I’ve been writing a book of prayers… here’s a new one from today for however it might bless you. Brent Teach Me God & Father, Teach me to know that if Jesus Christ has satisfied all the requirements of your divine justice, He can easily rescue me from my sinfulness. Teach me that Jesus doesn’t want to see me living in my own strength and fragile self-confidence, But rather living fully justified and empowered by the Spirit to a life of victorious obedience. Teach me that the Spirit of God and His power are mine because of what Christ accomplished on my behalf; That the Spirit within me satisfies the Law without. Teach me to thank You for every […]
As parents and students you have to keep your eyes OPEN, and be really alert, even skeptical about federal and private college loans, and scholarships. There are countless cons, rip-offs and scams to avoid. The tale-tell sign of a rip-off is any college financial arrangement that requires you to give THEM money up front (and any name: fees, service charge, processing charges, etc.), or disclose your financial/personal information (bank accounts, social security, etc). Much of the time this will be in some form of "service" where you pay someone to help you get grants, loans and "freebies" for college. Since the individual amounts that are scammed range from $50-$1000, most of time the victim just moves on in embarrassment, and it’s not enough money to […]

Question:People make fun of me for my faith, and ask me how I can believe in an old, outdated book that is full of errors and lacks credibility. How do I answer them? Answer:Don’t answer them (as a general rule). I didn’t say “don’t respond” but I will tell you that specific question for scoffers is rarely useful.They are blind and the Truth is irrelevant. It’s a distraction… a straw man to keep them from facing God about the real issue: sin. Use the Law (ten commandments) to show them they are sinners; if they become convicted, then show them the solution to sin. Otherwise, it’s all foolish argument with spiritually blind people. You might leave them with one simple challenge if they persist: “prove […]
Psalm 35:10 All my bones shall say, “LORD, who is like You…?” (NKJV)Yesterday we talked about Eternity and that God had no beginning. Now that you’ve got that all settled let’s take a look at some more wondrous things about God. Have you ever considered:God knew in eternity PAST exactly what would happen for all of eternity future. He knew what man would do. He knew what He would have to do to save us, yet still did it! Jesus knew for all eternity what would be required of Him. Yet He willingly chose to be incarnated as a man. He knew in the womb that He was God, but was still a normal baby. He knew as small child what His destiny was, yet […]
Hebrews 12:2 …looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (NKJV)Father of Salvation,You have drawn me to the cross of Your Son where I throw down all of my burdens and watch them vanish under the crimson blood;Where the mountains of my guilt and shame are swept away by the river of atonement;Where my sins, though they are many and awful, disappear into the depths of Christ’s sacrifice;Where my transgressions are remembered no more even while they number more than the grains of sand in a desert;For there is power in the soul cleansing blood […]
