One of the big myths as Christians is that: life is to be merry and feel good all of the time just because we are believers however, nothing could be further from the truth. The Christian life is to be a process of growth that at times is very difficult and that includes our marriages. As followers of Christ we must "endure hardship like a good soldier" (2 Tim. 2:3),and the life of matrimony is at times a hardship just like other areas of our life. But if we are to be light to a world of darkness, then we as the church, must carry the model of Christ and His bride and commit our lives to the goal of His glory for all to see. Here is a video that makes a great case for that idea...enjoy!

Hollywood hates Christianity and Jesus Christ. In fact more than 2000 years ago Christ stated:"If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you." So it should surprise no one that if a movie has any form of connection with the Christian faith, it is either ostracized, mocked or rejected by the cultural elite. I believe we will soon see the rise of more hate and persecution of authentic believers who take a stand for the gospel.

A lot of the worship in the modern church is basically man-centered. That is, it is centered around what people like or what is comfortable or what sounds and feels good to other human beings. Even the preaching is centered around what the parishoners like and what soothes their needs. However as Conrad Mbewe explains, worship is about God and God alone. Worship is to be what is pleasing to Him and it is what He wants and accepts. Listen and watch as he explains biblical worship for the church today.

This video is an example of the power of prayer. Here is one of the most amazing testimonys of how prayer is used to reach the un-saved. When we think of the captivity of sin and the bondage of Satan that many are under, we must recognize that only the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit can give life to lost men and women that are "dead in trespasses and sin". Only the gospel of Jesus Christ bring hope where there is no hope. Watch and enjoy!

When you are ignorant of what the church is and its purpose, then you will resort to silly gimmicks, slogans and clown tactics to get attention to promote a ministry. Here’s an example of a “church” and some pastor, claiming that something is wrong with the church, and that the church “sucks” or is boring, mean, judgmental, etc. Wow, American Christianity at it again. Enjoy

------Just when you think the church can't get any lower, it manages to scrape the bottom just a wee bit more. The church in the United States is so affluent and complacent, that it will even waste time trying to capture "white people" to come through the doors of a church. Ummm... I didn't know that Wall Street demographic tools grew a church, I thought that the bible said: "and the LORD added to the church ...(Acts 2:47).

----If you watch this video you will see that witnessing does not have to be complicated it is very simple. And with the power of the Spirit, ANYONE can do it! You don't have to be a trained evangelist with the gift of evangelism or have the "gift of gab" or a "people person". All you have to have is a desire for the lost, who do not know Jesus as their Savior, and go for it!
