Some people die from a physical heart attack. Others recover but know they have to be very careful not to have another. Two disciples of Jesus had their spiritual hearts attacked by Satan. One died from it - physically and spiritually. He will experience what the Bible calls "the second death." The other recovered because he was repentant and was forgiven.
Premarital sex is universally known as two people having sex before marriage. In the past, premarital sex is considered as forbidden and doing so will lead to a heavy retribution.

When you experience God's purpose for you, the greater your rewards will be upon entering heaven. It's Christ in you, the Hope of Glory!
Depression is the “D” bomb among Christians. Breathe a word of it, and you are doomed … to be stigmatized, chastised, pitied, whispered about. Instead of facing the medical fact that depression is an illness that affects the brain, we prefer to paint it with stripes and hope no one notices the disguise. We look away, or assign the person to the category of “spiritually lacking” or “unsaved.”
The week after my Mom passed away in March, my brothers and their families and I found ourselves in the difficult, but perhaps familiar, position of having to go through all her things. We did this so soon partly because we were all together in one city anyway, so we may as well get it done
Weakness, fear and a profound lack of faith drive us back to the grave for the familiar things that require little or no real commitment or accountability or cost to us. We remain like grasshoppers in the sight of the giants in the land.
Think about the reason you are trying to be in control. Because there is so much going on in your life. How silly of us is it to want to, and try to, be more in control during these craziest of times? As if we don't have enough to do by simply trying to keep our heads on straight and get from one day to the next.

By Michael Bradley Should Christians Rejoice Over the Death of Their Enemies? As you have all heard, Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the attack of 9/11, was found and killed by one of our US Navy Seal teams in Pakistan. When the news first broke, many people across our nation started to celebrate and […]
In this morning prayer, Pastor Sean believes God to give you a ridiculous breakthrough. God gave David a ridiculous breakthrough over the Philistine giant, Goliath. From the natural viewpoint, David seemed small and incapable of defeating the well-trained giant of war.
I think it is absolutely imperative that we have faith in ourselves and our ability to achieve what it is we really want to achieve. Because if we don't have that, then all the divine help and spiritual guidance in the world can't help us
Please don't be rude to God. Don't just go to church. Go and hear the word of the Lord. Don't talk, text, sleep or take calls when He is speaking. Listen as if your life depended on it.
An individual with biblical integrity is a principled person who becomes salt and light by living according to God's word and walking in the Holy Spirit. The result is uprightness, sincerity, honesty and trustworthiness.
Jesus gave us the blueprint for discipleship. This discipleship program is for all forms of leadership including parenting.
I highly encourage dads, to make more of an effort in helping their daughter make the right decisions and choices for her life. A father’s influence is so very important in helping his daughter to feel worthy of who she is as a woman. Get involved with the disciplining of your daughter and get involved with her life. She needs this from you.
Love does not insist on having its own way and winning all the time. If you are at fault never hesitate to say you're sorry. Avoid finger pointing. Marriage may provide you with a convenient scapegoat.

Some Christian men adopt the wrong approach at making their intentions known to the women of their hearts. What should they do in order to succeed in a marriage proposal?
The two-faced person wants to obtain something from you, but is either too jealous or lazy to get it for themselves. The thing they want from you may vary, but the motivation won't -- they have chosen deception in order to get it. They behave in a manner that is not Godly, but that is petty, deceitful, and self-serving.
My name is Rachel Handler and my life changed forever on March 3, 2012. Some may consider me disabled now, but I don’t think the prosthetic limb I wear is a sign of loss. It is a symbol of empowerment and a reminder to overcome fear and embrace life.
Is your life working for you? Do you need a fresh start in life, but you don’t know how to get that? Are you frustrated because you have tried to “hit the resend button” and instead of moving forward you go backwards?
Christians are on two polar extremes concerning praying against the devil, his agents and works. On one extreme, some Christians begin and end their prayers, with almost all their prayer points against the devil and his works. There is little or no time spent in worshipping and praising God; praying for other people and good things in their lives…
A stewardess forced the man to move because it was against their policy for a male to sit next to minor children. Talk about discrimination!

The good news I'm going to share with you here is so powerful that you'll begin to attract a God fearing partner in a short period of time.
Narcissistic Abuse can be physical, mental, emotional, sexual, financial, and/or spiritual. Some types of emotional abuse are not easy to spot, including manipulation. It can include emotional blackmail, using threats and intimidation to exercise control.
"If it were classified as a disease, fatherlessness would be an epidemic worthy of attention as a national emergency."
I cannot help but believe that some of the problems we are having in our society today would not be such a problem if we had fathers. How many families are there where children grow up not knowing their father? No wonder they have no respect for authority. Although my father was not a very well educated person, he knew how to use the Board of Education on the Seat of Learning for all his children.
