Say No to the Gospel of Self-Forgiveness – Christian Article

She sits in my office, tears running down her face. Two years ago her mother died in hospice while she lay asleep at home. She was trying to get a decent night’s rest after days spent at her mother’s side. “I just can’t forgive myself. I let her die alone. I knew I should have been there, but I was selfish. I can never forgive myself for that.” Dozens have shared similar confessions with me. Does this resonate with you?…

a provocative film that questions faith, sexuality, and Jesus. – Christian Article

Film Synopsis Imagine a youth pastor (aka Cleo) whose love for a teenage girl puts his job at the church in jeopardy. No – not an under-age, pervy sorta love.

Technical Difficulties | Focus on the Cross

So the idea was that seven of us would sing from the balcony of the historic church to begin the service. No accompaniment. Just fragments of Good Friday related hymns and songs, sung by different combinations of the group. While that was happening, a number of visual images would appear on the screen. As we began, it was apparent the person who was supposed to have started the slide carousel was distracted. So I chose a section where there was…

How to Answer the 12 Strongest Objections to Christianity – Christian Article

In the 1960s, sociologists widely predicted that religion would soon disappear. Now that we’re well into the 21st century, many of these same sociologists admit they were wrong.

Spirituality can’t be wiped out; humans are fundamentally spiritual beings, created by and for God. As Rebecca…
