Astrology and the Christ-follower – Part 1

I’ve seen a series of ads on television lately featuring decisions that are “no-brainers,” basically the easiest decision in the history of decision-making!

“Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you” (Jeremiah 32:17). What are the things God cannot do? When we think of God’s omnipotence, we think of all the things He has done—creation of the…

While We Were Still Sinners

I was reading James M. Boice’s devotional Come to the Waters this morning. The reading for this day was from Matthew 16:13-20, and the focus is Peter’s response to Jesus’ question, “Who do you say I am?” (v. 15).

The Muslim View of Salvation

From an Islamic perspective, humanity’s goal is not to seek to know God and become closer to Him through fellowship. Instead, the goal is to understand God’s (Allah’s) will and to follow His commandments more faithfully.
