The Spiritual Body: A Real Body

guys jumpingSomeone recently showed me an article from a reputable Christian magazine that stated we will not have physical bodies in the future heaven, based on an (incorrect) understanding of the reference in 1 Corinthians 15 to a “spiritual body".

Giving Comfort to Hurting People

comfortTo ignore someone’s pain is to add to that pain. Instead of fearing we’ll say the wrong thing, we should reach out to hurting people. Many times it’s better just to put our arms around someone and cry with them; people almost always appreciate it when you acknowledge their loss. Yet so long as your heart is right, saying something is nearly always better than saying nothing.


The Fear of God

humilityI appreciated this quote from John Stott about the fear of God. The fear of God is a profound respect for His holiness, which includes a fear of the consequences of disobeying Him. It shouldn't scare us out of our wits; it should scare us into them. "The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death" (Proverbs 14:27).

Spurgeon's Worst Sermon

C. H. SpurgeonIt is often difficult to confirm the accuracy of a story, including this one printed in the Christian Digest and cited in a collection of stories assembled by Paul Tan. It wouldn’t surprise me to find it is accurate, but in any case the point of the story is a valid one, and I have seen it illustrated in less dramatic ways in my own life and in the speaking ministries of others.

Do you believe God created the earth in six literal 24-hour days?

Earth from spaceFirst let me say that many sincere people believe in the Bible and also believe in an old earth. They do this via the gap theory or day age theory or some other means of interpretation.

Secondly, let me say that I am not certain about the age of the universe, the age of the earth, or when the first humans walked the earth. I have read very persuasive scientific arguments for an old earth, and have read some counterarguments that may have merit. I don't feel qualified scientifically to make the judgment.

The Hands of God

reaching handWhen we lock our eyes on our cancer, arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes, or disability, self-pity and bitterness can creep in. When we spend our days rehearsing the tragic death of a loved one, we will interpret all life through the darkness of our suffering. How much better when we focus upon Jesus!

Bob Hawkins Sr.: A Real Follower of Jesus

Bob Hawkins, Sr.Bob Hawkins Sr., founder of Harvest House Publishers and a real follower of Jesus, went to Heaven last Tuesday, February 9. (My most recent book, The Promise of Heaven, was published by Harvest House.) I met Bob Sr. years ago and thought the world of him, as did nearly everyone, I think. I am sorrowing with Bob's family and rejoicing with them, too.


Atheist Christopher Hitchens knows what a Christian is

Christopher HitchensIn a recent interview, Christopher Hitchens, the fervent atheist and author of God Is Not Great, showed he has a much clearer understanding of what it means to be a Christian than the Unitarian minister, who claims to be a Christian, interviewing him.
