What should we do with the Church of Smoke and Mirrors by Don Atkin

This is an ATTITUDE CHECK for lovers of God and those whom God loves. By the numbers, I believe that most church ministers and members are sincere in their desire to serve God.  Many precious people are the fruit of transgenerational religious traditions.  And, because of their sheltered environments, they don’t even know that there are options. Criticism and judgmentalism do not help. Normal response: They dig even deeper into the...

Healing Division in the Church by Living Grace

It’s sad that Christianity is divided into so many different groups. We all have a little different interpretation of the bible and a little different understanding of doctrine. Obviously we are not going to agree on everything, but we certainly should be able to love one another and accept each other even when we differ on these things. It’s hard to understand why this is when God tells us we are to be one, as Jesus and the Father...
