  • Where to Look in Dark Times

    Founders Ministries Blog

  • Jesus Makes Sense of My Complicated Relationship with the Psalms

    Stephen Altrogge

  • Powerful Promises for the Discouraged

    Mark Altrogge
    Powerful Promises for the Discouraged I guarantee you Jesus will help you and change you. You may not see drastic changes from day to day, but I promise you that 5 years from now you will say to me you can’t believe how much Jesus has changed you.
  • Five Foundations for Unity in the NT

    Matthew Harmon
    Five Foundations for Unity in the NT When reading through the NT, it does not take long to realize that Luke sounds different than John, and Paul different than both of them. So what basis is there for seeing unity in the midst of such diversity?
  • It Won't Wear Out

    Association of Biblical Counselors
    It Won't Wear Out We are all quite accustomed to living in a world where things simply do not last. But, if you are one of God's children, there is something in your life that will not wear out.
  • The Unexpected Perks of Being Thrown Into the Fire

    Stephen Altrogge
    The Unexpected Perks of Being Thrown Into the Fire Humanly speaking, this is crazy talk. Count it all joy whenever I meet a trial? James sounds like some sort of sadistic masochist who loves pain. But James sees things from God’s perspective.
  • Weaving Evangelism into Small Groups

    Randy Newman
    Weaving Evangelism into Small Groups One area where compartmentalizing (the opposite of integration) has hurt the church is the isolation of evangelism. Outreach has often been seen as a separate or unusual “program” in the church rather than a core component of its existence.
  • Marriage Is for Life!

    Craig Blomberg
    Marriage Is for Life! I remember being shocked as a young adult by some Hollywood wedding (a true story) in which the traditional vows were replaced with promises to be faithful “until the death of love parts us.” It’s time to return to basics. Love is a commitment, not a feeling. Feelings follow from godly actions, not vice-versa.

  • The Structured Removal of Faith

    Ron Edmondson
    The Structured Removal of Faith It’s a problem I see in churches. It’s a problem I could see us having in the church I now pastor… if we aren’t careful. If we aren’t careful we can depend more on the structure than on an utter dependence on God.
  • Guarding Our Eyes in a Visual Culture

    Mark Altrogge
    Guarding Our Eyes in a Visual Culture When God tells us, “Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you,” he is telling us to guard our hearts by watching what we expose ourselves to.
  • Theology of the Body and Sexual Harm

    The Good Book Blog
    Theology of the Body and Sexual Harm Why is sexual sin singled out as uniquely damaging to the body in a way that other physical actions are not? Substance abuse, gluttony, cutting—these are all harmful acts to the body, but they do not do what sexual misconduct does, according to Paul.
  • How Can We Know God Preserved Scripture?

    Theologically Driven
    How Can We Know God Preserved Scripture? The purpose of inspiration was to produce Scripture, a written record, a deposit of divine truth for the readers, not the writer. Without preservation the purpose of inspiration would be invalidated.
