Shipwreck – Inspirational Message

Shipwreck – Inspirational Message: "The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions."

Greg Laurie Daily Devotions - Greg Laurie Daily Devotion - Sept. 29, 2010 - Christian Devotional: "A happy person will be a holy person, because Jesus said, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God" (Matthew 5:8). But who could ever be pure in heart? You can. I can. We must understand what this statement means. By pure in heart, Jesus is not saying that we can never have an impurity in our hearts and never be inconsistent. Otherwise, we all would be disqualified, because the Bible clearly teaches "the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked" (Jeremiahs 17:9)."

We need to renew our souls as well as our bodies; we need to plug in and recharge our spiritual batteries for living another day."

Mormonism Is Not Christianity - Christian foundations - Christianity.com: "It appears that some in the news media are pronouncing Glenn Beck, a Mormon, the new leader of America's Christian conservative movement, and many Christian conservatives seem to have no problem with that.

But are Mormons "Christians" as defined by traditional Christian orthodoxy? The answer to that question is easy and straightforward, and it is "no." Nevertheless, even as the question is clear, the answer requires some explanation."

What does the Bible say about self-discipline?

What does the Bible say about self-discipline?: "Answer: Self-discipline is essentially the same as self-control, one of the nine fruits of the Spirit listed by Paul in Galatians 5:22-23. The KJV translation uses the word “temperance” in place of self-control which, like self-discipline, generally refers to our ability to control or restrain ourselves from all kinds of feelings, impulses, and desires, which includes the desire for physical and material comfort. Now, even though self-control is the last of the spiritual fruits mentioned by Paul, and even though it is a term not used extensively in the Bible, self-control is clearly an indispensable attribute of the Christian life, especially as our unredeemed flesh sometimes causes us to succumb to the persistent tug of our sinful desires."

What was the reason behind Peter's denial of Jesus?

What was the reason behind Peter's denial of Jesus?: "Answer: The story of Peter’s threefold denial of Christ is found in all four Gospel accounts: Matthew 26:69-74, Mark 14:66-72, Luke 22:55-62, and John 18:15-18, 25-27. But why would the chief of the disciples, the one closest to Jesus, deny even knowing Him? There were two main reasons why Peter denied Jesus: weakness and fear."

The Only Source of Wisdom

The Only Source of Wisdom: "The twentieth century produced an information explosion unparalleled in human history-instant access to volumes of knowledge at the click of your mouse.
