Usually when people say they believe the Bible contains errors, I ask ...
This month we’re giving away three copies of the brand-new Money, Possessions, and Eternity audio book, which is being released July 15.
Who wants to settle for fleeting treasures on earth... when God offers everlasting treasures in Heaven?
It’s time to rethink our perspectives on money and possessions. In this thoroughly researched and extensively updated classic, Randy Alcorn shows us how to view them accurately—as God’s provision for our good, the good of others, and his glory. Also includes PDF study materials.
Here’s how to enter: Leave a comment on this post by Sunday, July ...

On Facebook you can find me at www.facebook.com/randyalcorn. I've enjoyed posting some short devotional thoughts and Scripture references on my wall and seeing the responses from readers. For instance, one day last week I posted this:
We should come to God's Word to examine truth-claims (Acts 17:11). If we're more eager to watch a sitcom, American Idol, a ball game, or the evening news than to ...

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford has joined a long line of leaders, both secular and Christian, who have committed adultery.
Someone suggested, in light of this, that I post about fleeing and resisting sexual temptation. First, consider this from God's Word:
Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes, for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress preys upon your very life. Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned? Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet ...
This week's question is another one I answered on the Revive Our Hearts website:
I hear all kinds of financial advice in today's times. I've heard about investing and saving and preparing for the future (for example, saving for our children's education or retirement). What would you say would be the best financial advice for someone who is just starting out with marriage and children and really doesn't know what to do with their finances?
Thanks for this question. If you do just two things, you will have the cornerstones of living wisely financially.
Over the years my reading has included several bestselling books by atheists, who relentlessly condemn Christianity. The subtitle to God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens is "How Religion Poisons Everything." That's right: everything. (I guess that would include the life's work of Bach, among others.)
Despite some witch hunts and inquisitions, I'll take Christianity's track record against atheism's any day. (Lenin, Stalin, and Mao come to mind).
The atheists love to talk about how rotten Christianity makes people feel. If only Christianity weren't around, everything would be better.
Let me summarize the secular ...
