It’s Not the Trump’s That Finance the Kingdom

How do we Finance the Kingdom in the 21st century? For most of the Americanized modern Church it’s that time of year again. More money is spent and given toward Christian concerns than at any other time of the year. In my almost 30 years of “ministry” I have never seen the millionaires of this world further the cause of Christ. You would naturally think different. The more disposable or extra amounts of money should bring forth...

Worship of the Bible is Idolatry by Steve Crosby

There was a Body before there was a Christian “Bible.” This is a threatening fact for many. It is none-the-less, an indisputable historical fact. The implications can, and have been, argued for centuries, but the fact cannot be.

Our True Kingdom Identity — Who Are We Really? by Tim Price

One aspect of God’s kingdom deals with who we are as Christ’s followers and where our loyalty, identity and belonging rest… Over the years I’ve heard lots of teaching about our identity in Christ. Notions like we are, “God’s workmanship,” “the Redeemed of God,” or “sons of God.” While I’m not in protest of these articulations; I find them either ethereal or vague in practicum… I am sure most of these ideals are well meant. However, I...
