This site is dedicated to the praise and worship of our Lord, Jesus Christ; who came to earth, born to a virgin,
lived a sinless life, became the ultimate sacrifice for our sins by dying on the cross at Calvary, but defeated
death by rising from the tomb three days later, entered Heaven to rein at the right hand of God, and will one day
return to earth to collect those who believe in Him and establish His Kingdom.
The Bible and Homosexuality
A popular topic for emails sent to us these days is "What is your stance on homosexuality and same sex marriage".
It seems that maybe next to illegal immigration, no other issue is causing more divisions between people then the
issue of homosexuality.
Let's take a moment to see what the Bible says about homosexuality and same sex marriage..
The Bible - Is it True?
Most Christians accept the Bible to be a true and historically accurate description of the creation of the world,
the creation of humans, the formation of the Jewish people (also known as Israelites) and their activities in the Holy Land,
and the formation of the early Christian church based on the words of Jesus Christ and His apostles.
Christians also believe the Bible contains all necessary information for forming a relationship with God and
assuring a place in Heaven with Him after death.
The Burial of Jesus
It's important to understand the Jewish burial process and
what would have been involved in burying Jesus after the crucifixion.
It is also important to understand what Jesus would have to overcome, aside from death, in coming back to life.
Christians and "The Da Vinci Code", Part 1
After reading "The Da Vinci Code"
and with the imminent release of the movie with the same title, I felt it necessary to write a bit about what
Christians may need to expect and how to use the openings the movie will create to give truthful testimony about
Over the next several weeks leading up to the release of the movie, I will be compiling information in an attempt
to arm our readers with helpful responses.
Christians and "The Da Vinci Code", Part 2
In part 2 of "Christians and "The
Da Vinci Code", we are going to take a look at the Gnostic writings from which Dan Brown claims to have taken
most of the premises used in his story.
Christians and "The Da Vinci Code", Part 3
In part 2, we looked at the Gnostic
Gospels, the "sources" Brown used as the basis for his so-called "historically accurate" book, "The Da Vinci Code".
This article will look at some of the more obvious mistakes Brown made in his "research".
"Falling Away" of the Church
As one reads news articles from
around the Christian community, it is hard not to notice that many churches and denominations seem to stepping
away from "controversial" biblical teachings in favor of a world view version of the bible. This means that
tough topics such as homosexuality, abortion, adultery, and going to hell for not acknowledging Jesus as Lord
and Savior, are not being discussed, let alone preached about in churches. Moral relativism and congregational
entertainment seem to be all the rage. So are we in the period prophesied in the Bible as the "great falling away"
of the church; the age of the church apostasy?
The Fern Sidman Commentaries
As Christian Zionist, we fully support the creation and existence of the Nation of Israel.
We believe that the covenant, made between God and the Israelites of the Old Testament, is still
very much in force and that the people of Israel, the modern Israelis and Jews share in this covenant.Updated Often
Although it may be seen as an "odd" alliance, between us as Evangelical Christians and Orthodox Jews, it is a great
pleasure to host the commentaries written by Fern Sidman. Ms Sidman, has contributed many insightful and wisdom
filled commentaries to our blog, of which I am compiling here.
Some of His names and where they originated
Although I am not a linguist or language scholar, I find the origins of names fascinating.
The Bible contains many names for God, the earliest ones in Hebrew and Aramaic, the later ones in Greek.
Christians believe in a triune God, or "the trinity" of God. This trinity is made up of "the father" (God),
"the son" (Jesus) and the "Holy Spirit".
Honor America's Military
I put together a small montage
of military service related pages to honor the men and women who serve in our military. It is because of their
sacrafice that we can live free in this country. Be sure to show them your appreciation when you meet them
Jesus is a Jew
I was recently admonished on a
blog when I claimed that "Jesus is a Jew". The young woman doing the admonishing responded to my comment with "Of
course he isn't a Jew. He's a Christian!"
If one were to ask the question "what religion is Jesus" I suspect the response would almost always be "He is a
Christian". What some people don't realize is that Jesus is a Jew.
How did I arrive at this conclusion? Let's take a look.
"Out of Control" by Ben Young and Dr. Samual Adams
Several months ago, I was asked by Nelson Books to review one their books.
The fact that it has taken me this long to get around to writing a review of "Out of Control, Finding Peace for the
Physically Exhausted and Spiritually Strung Out" by Ben Young and Dr. Samual Adams, shows just how much I needed to
Radio Frequency Identification Tags (RDIF) - The "Mark of the Beast"?
There has been much speculation in
recent years that the prophetic "mark of the beast" referenced in the Bible's book of Revelations, could be linked to the
popular radio frequency identification tag or RDIF.
Salvation Through Jesus
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him."
John 3:16-17 (New American Standard Bible)

Signs of Jesus' Return
Jesus promised to eventually
return in order to gather up or "rapture" His believers.
Most Christians believe this will be the event that marks the beginning of a seven-year "tribulation" period,
in which the anti-Christ comes to power.
Some might wonder what the signs of His coming would be.
Talking to the Dead...Truth or Fiction?
Recently, I saw a commercial for an upcoming episode of "Crossing Over with John Edward", a show, who's host,
John Edward, claims to be able to communicate with people who have died, or in his words "crossed over".
We have all lost relatives and loved ones that we miss very much. Wouldn't it be great to have one more conversation with
them? Wouldn't it make us happy to be able to tell them that we love them one last time?
What Does the U.S. Constitution Actually Say About Religion?
We have heard, for years now, how there is a "wall of separation" or "separation of church and state" between
the government and religion, and how also the government, or even individuals in the "public square" are forbidden
from "endorsing" a particular religion. Is that true?
Let's a take a look at what the Constitution of the United States actually says about religion.
If your church is looking for a unique way to bring the Word of God to it's children and young people, take a look at Doug Westbrook's Bible Story Murals.
