  • TOUCHPOINTS: Vengeance belongs to God

     There is a new TV series called “Revenge.”

    The girl in the series is seeking to destroy those who wrongfully accused her father for something he didn't do, leading to his incarceration and death.  Revenge is one of the most primitive of human instincts. If we are unjustly criticized by someone we work with, made the victim in a crime we didn't commit, slandered by lies of others, or had someone we love taken from us by sensual actions of another, our gut response is to want revenge. 

  • COLUMN: Be still and know that he is God

     Be still and know that I am God. Psalms 46:10

    Noise pollution ... there is so much noise always around us: the TV/radio/computer blaring, the dishwasher whirring, the washing machine sloshing, telephones jingling, traffic blaring, lawn mowers roaring and a multitude of other sounds are heard during our daily lives.

    Our world has become inundated with noisiness. It surrounds us in our homes, our vehicles, our workplace and in our leisure time.

  • COLUMN: God's standard is love

     Beloved, let us love one another. (1 John 4:7)

    God’s standard is love one another. We are not just to love the lovable, the healthy, those within a 10-mile radius or us or just the middle class. God wants us to accept one another – warts and all.

    Twelve times in the New Testament we are told to love one another. Why 12 times? Love does not come naturally. It is hard for us to carry out this command.

  • COLUMN: Guilty conscience can lead us back to God

     If a Christian does wrong, it is good that he feels guilty for it shows the Holy Spirit is at work in his life. Jesus said of the Holy Spirit, “… he will convict the world of its sin.”(John 16:8).

    Guilt plays a big part in confession. When the prophet Nathan confronted King David about his sin, the king confessed to Nathan, "I have sinned against the Lord" (II Samuel 12:13). Guilt is like a warning light on the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong.

    When God shows us our wrong, how do we handle the guilt?
