Jesus – a Practicing Socialist

 An excellent message by Rick Frueh.  It is impossible to read the New Testament and not see the theme of redemption through faith in Jesus Christ. In fact, that is the exclusive theme in both the Old and New Testament. The sacrifice of God’s Son upon the cross provided redemption for whosever will believe. And […]

A Message to His Holy Highness the Worshipful Bishop Rev. Dr. Apostle Grand Poobah

Love it!   From Lee Grady, I am often asked if I have a title, and my answer doesn’t satisfy some people. I travel a lot, so I don’t consider myself a pastor. All kinds of labels have been pinned on me: Reverend, prophet, apostle … even bishop. Once I was introduced to a church as […]

Open thy mouth…plead the cause of the poor and needy

Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. – Proverbs 31:9 “No room in the inn” “Placed him in a manger” – So often we play favorites with the rich, beautiful, powerful, and prestigious.

And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest. And he said unto them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him […]

Are You Willing to be a Servant?

For the past week I’ve been reading Boyd’s The Myth of a Christian Nation, in which he points out that we, as true followers of Christ, should be imitators of our Lord by becoming servants to others. I’ve had it on my mind all week.. Because of that, while browsing online this afternoon the chapter […]

Teaching Sound Doctrine & Glorifying Christ

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby

Lead Me
