Newness of Life: Legalism vs. Grace

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). Our lives without Jesus are based on systems not related to Christ at all. Whether our belief system is religious or not, we follow patterns established...

When Ideology became Idolology

Posted by Rod Neufeld on October 17, 2017

Yes, I just made up a word. Looking at the current state of the world “idolology” should not surprise anyone. After all, most of our realities are fabricated and common sense has been thrown out because it is “intolerant and restrictive.” I was watching a Ray Comfort video (love the guy fyi). I don’t always agree with the way...

I Researched My Reality, Have You Done Yours?

Posted by Rod Neufeld on October 2, 2017

“Don’t judge my God based on me, HE is so immensely better than me.” We read that faith is the evidence of things not seen: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV) This speaks to the fact that not all we believe can be explained by just words or...

Where Was God?

Posted by Rod Neufeld on July 6, 2017

Where was God when….? Have you ever heard this statement? I have many times and in many places. It is a question that most Christians fear or even run from. I have fled this question many times fearing the thought of even thinking about addressing it. The question, I’m sure, is almost as old as creation. The answer is...

Bible Buffet

Posted by Rod Neufeld on April 21, 2017

One morning at church I was previewing some videos I was going to play during our Easter/Resurrection Sunday breakfast. There was one video that used footage from the movie The Passion of the Christ. It was part of the scene where Christ was being whipped by soldiers. The graphic part was about 30 seconds of a 4 minute video. It was...

When you can’t fix it

Posted by Rod Neufeld on March 23, 2017

We often find ourselves in situations we can no longer correct on our own. I think the real struggle is recognizing that we never really fix anything on our own. We like to think that we did it under our own steam, without assistance. We then get to openly brag about it or quietly glory in our problem-solving ability. Let...

Guilty…… Of what?

Posted by Rod Neufeld on April 20, 2016

I was listening to the radio this week and heard a new Newsboys song called “Guilty”. I believe it is on the “God’s Not Dead 2” soundtrack. It really got me thinking: I remember when I was younger and in school it was ok to talk about God and Jesus. It wasn’t considered criminal or taboo. Why is it...

Despicable Me

Posted by Rod Neufeld on September 13, 2015

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.”Matthew 24:9 KJV It seems that being a Christian puts a target on our backs these days. It doesn’t matter where in the world you are; it is an acceptable practice to hate Christians...

Persecution

Posted by Rod Neufeld on June 12, 2015

Persecution, what do we think it is? Every day I read about the persecution of Christians going on around the world. It sickens me to see the images and hear the stories of these followers of Christ who face such dire situations! We here in North America talk about it, blog about it, and write about it. Do even grasp...

An Aatheist

Posted by Rod Neufeld on May 27, 2015

Dear Atheist, Please don’t take offense, but, I don’t believe in you. I do not believe in the existence of a human that believes there is no God. In order to believe or not believe you need faith, if you have have faith you need something to have faith in! The fool hath said in his heart, There...

Christian - A very confusing term

Posted by Rod Neufeld on April 30, 2015

And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26 KJV) In the early years of the Church, the term, “Christian,” was not an endearing term but more of a...
