The Sanctified Life…

...the way to live.

God’s word says, “I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy.” Lev 11:44  It also says, “It is God’s will that you should be sanctified:”1Th 4:3 We, then ought to aim to be sanctified and live for God.

The Unsanctified Life…

...there is a better plan.

The unsanctified life is the person who has not acknowledged God as the supreme authority and deepest friend. The first recognition of the unsanctified life is the person that does not know God.

His campaigns, public and personal were always forthright with no apologies for God’s gospel of love for all. As he ascended in celebrity, his resolve to tell all about saving grace intensified while being cautious not […]

Future of The Salvation Army…

...might include you.

Often I am asked about the future of The Salvation Army. My answer almost always includes my lack of interest in the perpetuity of the movement. Factually, it will survive the rapture!

Deep Convictions…

...need a proper basis.

We’re witnessing deep convictions in our culture today. The Australians have recently expressed their convictions in a recent vote to legalize marriage of adults regardless of their gender. American football players are expressing their convictions on the field during the playing of the national anthem. Others in America are turning away from the nfl because […]
