Trust in God

Posted by Brad Quiring on June 16, 2018

Dear Abundant Life Family, For believers in Jesus Christ and members of Bible-teaching churches and organizations, this last couple of years seems to have been very frustrating.

Posted by Brad Quiring on April 27, 2018

​Mike Quarles writes in his book One Day at a Time “Christians can have an intellectual knowledge of the truth, but not personally believe and appropriate it so that it changes their lives.” (Page 94).

God vs. Evolution - Are all created equal?

Posted by Rod Neufeld on July 1, 2015

How is that for a title? So the Pope and the President of the United States both believe in evolution of some sort. At least that is what they say in press conferences and such. They both also claim a belief in God. I have to say I have a problem with this line of thinking. To me it’s...
