  • A Faith That Destroys Walls

    On June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed one of the most memorable statements of the 20th Century. President Reagan declared, “General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberation. Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” This historic charge aided in the destruction of the Berlin Wall that occurred in November 1989.

  • Weeping - With or Over?

    There are many beautiful and awe inspiring mountains ... the alps and the rockies among them.  One mountain we recently thought about leading up to Easter was the Mt. of Olives near Jerusalem.  When Jesus made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem, Luke 19:41 tells us, “And when He approached, He saw the city and wept over it.”

  • How do you see Jesus

    By Paul Richey
    Guest Columnist

    The work of Christ on the cross demands a response from individuals. Either one receives the message of the gospel authentically, receives the message in vain, or does nothing more than deny responsibility to receiving the gospel. Unfortunately, the pressures of the world often outweigh the call of the Lord to respond to His grace.

  • Jesus is Alive

    The Arc’ de Triomphe in Paris, is one of the most magnificent monuments in the world.  It is the originating center of many beautiful avenues, the most famous of the twelve being the Champs-Elysses. 

    The crucifixion and resurrection, a mighty spiritual arch of triumph, is the originating center of the Christian faith, from which every facet of our hope is extended.  Christianity seemed doomed that Jewish sabbath when the body of Jesus lay in a borrowed tomb.  But resurrection morning brought hope, light, joy and immortality to life.

  • Without Easter

    The average American, when asked about Easter, thinks about eggs, candy, bunnies, and decorations. Although there is nothing wrong with such traditions, sometimes we may miss the main point of the celebration. Easter is far more important than we realize. Have you ever thought about what it would be like if Easter Sunday never happened?

    What is the true meaning of Easter? First of all, we must understand the true meaning of Easter. Easter is a celebration of Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross in order to provide a way of salvation through the forgiving of sin.

  • A Crucified Life

    The Christian life is the happiest and most fulfilling life that a man can live, but it is no bed of roses.  The Apostle Paul says it is a spiritual battle until you are taken home to heaven (Ephesians 6:10-20).  To live it rightly means one must make a full and complete surrender to God’s will.
