Faith Works By Love

    For years the faith movement has been telling people that “faith works by love”. It’s true, that’s how faith works, but they misunderstood “by love”, telling us that faith only works when we love. If we don’t love people, forgive people, help people, serve people, show compassion on people, help people, live forContinue reading “Faith Works By Love”

Grace People or Gracious People?

Kenneth Hagin said the derailing of the faith movement would happen if the people with strong faith did not love the people with weak faith. I believe the derailing of the grace movement will happen if grace people never become gracious people. Grace can easily be just head knowledge to a series of doctrines, making youContinue reading “Grace People or Gracious People?”

Ten Reasons to Speak in Tongues…

10.  You edify yourself and build yourself up 9. You train your mind to shut up and listen to your spirit speaking out of your mouth 8. You build up yourself in the faith 7.

Abundant Supply

Tonight was awesome!  Simply awesome! Duncan Sherwin kicked off the conference with a powerful message on money. Some of his comments on trusting God and not money, and putting money into context (the word money is in the Bible more than the word faith) and showing us how to relate to money was brilliant. ThenContinue reading “Abundant Supply”


Racism is defined as treating people differently on the basis of nationality or outward markers of ethnicity.  Still racism is an issue in the world and the church today – people are neglected, ignored, devalued because of their nationality and ethnicity.  Jesus said His vision is for His house to be a house of prayerContinue reading “Gracism!”

The Mandate for a Grace Filled, Guilt Free, New Testament Church

Arthur’s messages during our Restoring Leaders conference have really challenged me and lifted my thinking.  He is possibly the single most powerful Bible teacher in our generation (yes, I know I have said something superlative there and I have considered my thoughts and words carefully). Something he said several times was this: we have toContinue reading “The Mandate for a Grace Filled, Guilt Free, New Testament Church”

Protected by Love (Kenneth Copeland)

Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven. – Matthew 5:44-45 Love your enemies…turn the other cheek…to most people that sounds like a prettyContinue reading “Protected by Love (Kenneth Copeland)”

Romans 2.13

(For not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. This is a verse that without paying careful attention to context and to systematic theology is one that you could easily take to mean the exact opposite of what Paul actually means. Paul is talkingContinue reading “Romans 2.13”
