Biblical Worldview


A Word Skillfully Spoken
by Mike Quigley   
Should Christians change the nation's laws, behaviors and culture? Or should believers bring the lost to a saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, letting Him change hearts?  click for full text


Backslidden but Saved?
I'm living in sin and I know it. I guess you could call me a backslidden Christian. My question is how do I know I'm saved even though I'm sinning? Will I be in heaven? In a rapture?  click for full text


Beauty&Youth Cults
In Church?   
I'm in my late forties and having a terrible time with aging. Everywhere we worship the young, thin&beautiful and there are no older role models. How can aging Christians cope with this?  click for full text


Bigotry&Selfishness
I've been damaged by the bigotry of humans. The selfishness and segregation sickens me. So I doubt churches. I doubt cults. I won't be controlled. But, I can trust, learn&grow. (A.M.)  click for full text


Brainwashed Americans
30 Second Sound-Bite Christians   
In the middle of worldwide unfolding crisis&economic disaster all my family wants to do is watch T.V.&sports 24/7. It seems perverted to me. But, I don't know what to do about it anymore. Help!  click for full text


Breaking Strongholds
Satan, the god of this evil world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe, so they are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News that is shining upon them. (2 Cor. 4:3-4, NLT)  click for full text


Bummer Baby Boomer Question

Checklist for our Lives
"This is just a test." That's our lives on earth - spiritual boot camp and a short quiz, over before we know it. A puff of hot air…a quick burst of hairspray. That's life.  click for full text


Churches
Real Believers?   
80% of Americans say they are Christians. But, many people who say they are Christians are really not. Because of this, the greatest mission field is right in our own churches - not just in China!  click for full text


Deaconesses
Not in my backyard…   
I like my church. But, each year the elders vote down deaconesses. Many of our women are "champions" of the faith and help a lot with needs in church (which our deacons need). Should I leave?  click for full text


Discernment?
Or Anything Goes?   
"Hey, man…whatever works for you…" "Just love em…" "Don't make waves, man…" How many of us have encountered answers like these when we question church goers about things pertaining to faith?  click for full text


Discipline Means He Loves Us

 Doing Something Worthwhile
With Limitations?

Doormat Theology
"Walk on Me"   
"Doormat theology" isn't my idea of how a Christian should behave. I was taught to stand up for my rights and fight against evil. There's nothing virtuous about pursuing "peace" over what's right.  click for full text

God's Will for Me
How to Find it   
I would like to do something more for God. But, I don't think my job and parental role fulfill what the Lord wants me to do. How do we find God's will for our lives?  click for full text


Hearing from God
How does He speak to Us?   
How do people "hear" from God? Why do they say, "The Lord told me to do this." Or, "we prayed about it and the Lord told us to move?" How can we really know when God speaks to us?  click for full text


Holy Spirit uses Sinners?
I heard a TV evangelist say that if I'm sinning the Holy Spirit cannot use me. Is that true?  click for full text


Hospitality the Biblical Way
What is true "biblical hospitality?" Is it someone who gives terrific dinner parties for people at church. Is it someone who entertains others or organizes potlucks? Is this the gift of "hospitality?  click for full text


Jesus Chastising Leaders
A Model for Us?   
How can we integrate Christ's example of chastising the leaders of his day who were a disappointment to him? (M.M.)

Great question!  click for full text

How to Keep Them   
How often we feel we failed. We lost our job. Or our marriage fell apart. We didn't lose 20 lbs. Or we lost our home. So much for New Year's resolutions. But, is there a way to keep them?  click for full text


Organized Religion
Untrustworthy?   
I have experienced organized religion…in fact suffered greatly because of it. I do not trust judgmental institutions…those who proclaim holiness, fear and control, face-value pietism and hypocrisy  click for full text


Pastors Self-Destructing
Not only is the pastor expected to live a life of poverty, to research and present scholarly sermons, and to put up with our rude behaviors, but a pastor is also expected to maintain a good attitude..  click for full text

Priorities
Setting Right Ones   
If you had to decide what really counts in life what would it be? What should be our priorities? How can we focus on things that matter&disregard the rest in our materialistic society?  click for full text

Partnering with Belial?

Sovereignty or Choice?
James Borror, Th.D.   09/04/2006
