Question from a reader:

I’ve been struggling with having impure dreams that take me to a very dark place. I think there might be some demonic influence. What should I do?

Dialogue with a Reader: Will I go to Hell if I fail at living a good Christian life?

50 Days of HeavenEveryone who tries to live the Christian life fails. I’ve failed. Randy has failed. But God doesn’t reject us when we fail; He helps us grow. You expressed there are many things keeping you from the life God wants for you. God wants your life to be full of hope, love, peace, grace and forgiveness and so much more. 

Never Stop Being A Student

ChalkboardThere was once a time in the early years of our faith when we couldn’t get enough. We had a voracious hunger for truth. We lived with the humbling realization that there was so much we didn’t know. We loved to study the Word of God. We loved listening to peers and mentors who were further along. We were students.

How can I comfort a friend who lost one of her unbelieving parents?

Question from a reader:

I will be attending a memorial service for a dear friend’s mother who was not a Christian. Her father is devastated, even though she had battled cancer for nine years. How can I offer hope at such a time?  

How can we keep the Sabbath in our current culture?

Question from a reader:

God tells us to “keep the Sabbath”, but I have a lot of Christian friends who go shopping or out to dinner, or do other kinds of work on Sundays. What is an appropriate way to keep the Sabbath in our current culture?

Is it important how I dress for church?

Question from a reader:

Do you think that how you dress is important when you attend church? Isn’t that part of showing respect for the things of the Lord?

Why does God reward us? (video)

Like a parent, God delights to reward His children for what they have done. Randy asserts that to want reward is not a selfish thing. He clarifies that selfishness is wanting something at the expense of another, but God's rewards are not limited, so for one person to receive ongoing rewards does not diminish the rewards available to another person. In God's system, everyone gains and no one loses. This video clip was excerpted from Randy's Eternity 101 DVD class, available at http://www.epm.org/store/product/eternity-101/.

Man: A Dethroned Monarch (video)

Blaise Pascal said that, like a dethroned monarch who craves for the influence he or she lost, we often feel a similar impotence to accomplish great things for God. Though the fall has diminished our ability to accomplish as much as may want to, we don't have to wait for heaven to operate within a God given sphere of influence. Randy reminds us that God has given us a sphere of influence and we should serve Him faithfully in it.

God and Culture: Inherently in Conflict? (video)

Our human culture has often been in direct opposition to God. But does it have to be? Randy quotes Eric Sauer who posits that cultural achievements (inventions and discoveries, science and art, etc.) can be part of our God-given directive to take dominion over the earth.

What are ‘true riches’? (video)

Randy asserts that "true riches" are people who are put under our care. In this clip he encourages us to serve God faithfully in the sphere of influence that He has give us. Randy also quotes Dallas Willard who addresses our involvement as a creative influence of the universe as God's apprentices.
