Below are articles which have been compiled from various sources, most of which were written by the leaders in our church as well as some of the congregation. All articles from other sources are appropriately referenced as such.
We have broken the articles into general categories. However, do to the nature of scriptural topics, one article may appear under more than one category. Please feel free to read and comment of any of these articles but DO NOT use any of the content of these articles without clearly indicating the source from which you are quoting and linking back to the given article. This is NOT an issue of giving credit to the author, but in respect to any misunderstanding you may have of what the author meant. Much harm has been done to people’s reputation by misquoting or misapplying a quote from an author. We ask that you respect our wishes on this matter.
Thank you and may God bless!
Life in General
A few years ago someone in our church confronted me with a question about 2Chorn. 7:14 which says this…
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
The question they asked was a very honest one and though I do not remember the specific question it ran something like this…
“I know lots of Christian who have humbled themselves before God and prayed for our nation…that God would change or replace our current leadership and yet, he has been re-elected for another term. How many have to pray to get this prayer answered?”
I had thought for some time that this verse was wildly misused, but this question presented me with the incentive to dive into this passage and answer that question and others like it, once and for all.
The answers I arrived at are NOT popular for they reveal a total misunderstanding of the who, what , where & why questions presented in the passage as compared to the way this verse is most often used by the body of Christ at large.
If you are the sort of person who cares about truth and what the Bible actually says, then this series of articles is for you, if not, I suggest you just keep on praying the passage the way you always have, just don’t be surprised when you do not get what you wanted.
