Most of us think that we are good. I’ve talked to hundreds of people over the last few years at outreach events and about 95% respond in the affirmative to the question, “Are you a good person?” Almost all people believe God will accept them into heaven based on their personal goodness. Some reason, “Well,Continue reading “Are You a Good Person?”

Chosen by God?
In high school the gym teacher would often pick two captains for two teams, whether it be football, baseball, or dodge ball. The two captains would then take turns picking others for their team. Obviously, they would pick friends and then guys they believed would have the best athletic ability. Not to be picked lastContinue reading “Chosen by God?”
Do Babies Go to Heaven?
As a youngster, I hung out with kids who were all older than me. One particular day we were tossing rocks in between two houses. My cousin watched us from his bedroom window.

He said, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father”. (John 14:9). He claimed to be “I AM’, a reference to God in ExodusContinue reading “The Greatest Cold Case of All”

Once a Child; Always a Child?
I often misunderstood the Bible when I failed to distinguish between ‘relationship’ and ‘fellowship’. This can lead to some huge misunderstandings which result in the way you live. If you are a Christian and live in the fear of God’s punishment, you may be making the same error. A relationship with God is established theContinue reading “Once a Child; Always a Child?”
