Another Gospel

Written by Bob Crittendon

After attending a National Religious Broadcasters Convention, certainly there is much to process.  It is a time for many to receive training and exhortation, to connect with practical tools in order to be better communicators of the gospel.  For others, it is a time for encouragement, to be built up in the faith.

My NRB experience for years has been to hear firsthand from Christian communicators, including authors, musical artists, commentators, actors, and more.  I believe that one of the threads upon which I was able to explore this year at the convention in Orlando was the conflict between the true gospel and what I have referred to as “another gospel,” borrowing from the verse in Galatians 1:8 - “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.”

The Promise of Amazing Grace

Written by Sam Belkofer, LPC

Spring reminds us of God’s promise that there is constant and consistent rebirth. For Christians, the Resurrection of Christ is God’s most loving and powerful Promise and gift of all.  Each year, Christians honor and practice the rituals of Lent, leading us to the sacred despair of the crucifixion of Jesus and the joy of the Resurrection of Christ.  This affirms God’s promise of eternal life by the path to him through our faith that Christ will lead us there. This time of year it is easy to see this promise in nature’s gifts of blooming trees and flowers, the greening of grass and the gradual warming of the temperature. The earth is made new before us. We have the choice to be made new as well.

RRJ:  Your faith became real during college as you got involved in campus ministries. What was different about that environment and how did your faith change?

 

Mia:  As a child, church was instilled in me by my grandmother. She was a pianist for two churches and would travel between the two on Sundays with myself and my siblings in tow. When I was eleven she died and I didn’t get back to church until I got my driver’s license.  I would drive myself and was baptized at the age of 17. 

Joining the Baptist Campus Ministries on the campus of Alabama A&M University taught me that faith is walked out daily not just a Sunday experience. Listening and sharing testimonies helped me to see God in all things. It was then that I began to ask God for direction and intentionally look for is gracious hand in my life.

What If I Do This?

Written by Sam Whatley

Is curiosity a good thing? Is it wise to try out new ideas? Sometimes.

When I was about ten years old our science class studied the way mold spores grow in damp, dark places. The teacher suggested that we put some water on a slice of bread and put it in a dark place for a week. We were to check on it each day and record our observations.

    Sipping Saltwater

    by Steve Hoppe

     

    Is there any sin we commit more but admit less than the sin of idolatry? As people who have knowingly and willingly deserted the one true God, we turn our hearts this way and that to find the satisfaction we are meant to find in him alone. We try first one thing and then the other yet never find our thirst assuaged. It is not until we rest in Him that we find true rest. It is not until we are satisfied in him that we find true satisfaction. Idolatry is the curse of all mankind.

Faith at Work

  • Dr. Den Trumbull, Pediatrician, Pediatric Healthcare

    RRJ:  You grew up knowing who Jesus was, but as a teen you say you saw Him in a different light.  What would you say brought you to this awareness?

     

    Dr. Trumbull:  Although I knew about Jesus, I didn’t know him personally.  In high school, I attended a summer camp with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and heard the late Dallas Cowboys Football Coach Tom Landry speak about his relationship with Christ.  It was then that I realized my sinful nature and my need for a Savior.
