    Having No Mercy For Others, Only For Ourselves

    Because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. – James 2:13 We all have been shown great mercy in our lives.

    An Identity Crisis in the Evangelical Church by Greg Gordon

    For many Christians in our day, the concept of Christianity begins with the reformation period of the 1500’s, often with little desired to be known about the church before that time. And so, like a vessel adrift in the sea of modern individualism, we have in many ways strayed from the original...

    If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. - Galatians 5:15 It is unbelievable at times to see how even believers can disagree. One side sticks their feet in and the other side does also. No one is budging or willing to say they are wrong, both are...

    Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. - Revelation 2:4 Over the years we hear many explanations of the reasons why our Lord spoke so strongly to the Ephesian Church about their loss of their "first love." Our Lord summed up the entire Old Testament in one...

    Unforgiving at the End of the Age - Greg Gordon

    St. Paul writes to Timothy giving us a picture of how it will look just before the second coming of the Lord. He shares that people will be “unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good” (2 Timothy 3:3). In the end times there will be a great shift in how...

    Unto Him that Loved us, To Him that Washed us from our Sins

    The Roman Coliseum was one of the main centers for entertainment and, on this day, it was not gladiators or sports competitions, but a different type of crown was being competed for.

    The Publican and Pharisee, A Lesson in Pride and Humility

    When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. - Proverbs 11:2 Pride and the Devil When we speak of pride we also often times think of the devil. He was the beautiful angel who through transgression and pride fell from his place with God to a fallen state. Lucifer, an...

    Bitterness The Poison Of The Soul

    Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. - Ephesians 4:31 Bitterness is something we feel never will happen to us.

    Being Like Joseph Who Blesses and Forgives by Greg Gordon

    I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! – Genesis 45:4 Many of us have heard the dramatic story of Joseph in the book of Genesis. This young man gets abused and sold into slavery by his jealous brothers. He suffers greatly in prison and in other circumstances. Finally in an...
