Many churches also have a worship band playing music every Sunday so that the congregation can worship God through a couple of songs. A problem now arises because due to the cool-ness of playing an instrum...

The Spiritual High, Good or Bad?

The spiritual high - that rush of emotions when you feel something take over you after that hard-hitting talk took hold... you decide to recommit; read the bible every day; stop your life of putting sin first and place God first; and you inevitably fail. I am not against a spiritual high, nor am I against the emotional response present at many events, as long as the spiritual Christian at that...

The Glory of the Triune God

This is a quote from the first chapter of Joe Rigney's book titled "The Things of Earth: Treasuring God by Enjoying His Gifts".

This We Must Believe

The Apostles Creed is something all Christians have believed for two thousand years. After a rather casual agreement on social media, Hillsong (Pentecostal) decided to collaborate with John Dickson (Anglican) in writing this song. The first time I heard and sang this song was at RICE Easter Event 2014, and it brought me to tears (yes, I have feelings sometimes). All Christians should be able to ...
