Four Ways to Stop Loving Money

I love the smell and feel of a new thing I just bought. The experience of opening the box of a new iPhone is exhilarating, so is pushing the “purchase” button on Amazon.com.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with loving to get new stuff. There is, however, something wrong with any obsession. The problem with obsession is, we frequently don’t know we’re obsessed, when in reality we are.

Statistically this is true of us in the US. How do we know this?

The Four Spiritual Food Groups

To be healthy, you need a balanced diet of the four food groups. To be spiritually healthy, you need a balanced spiritual diet as well. It's important we don't all focus on one food group, our favorite. We need to take a look at our spiritual diet and see if it's balanced.

Christianity in a Postmodern World

Dr. John Oakes taught a class titled "Christianity in a Postmodern World" at the 2013 International Christian Evidence Conference at San Diego State University. He proposes a rational Christian response to both the good and the bad which comes with postmodern thinking.  The class covers the history of modernism and why it was replaced by postmodernism, with a brief bio of the major influences in the movement, as well as suggesting both the strengths and weaknesses of the postmodern mood.

Perspective on Christmas as Jewish Believer: "Messiah Mas"

A Jewish believer’s perspective on Christmas

"Do not be afraid, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ (Messiah) the Lord." (Luke 2:8-10)

I have been invited to share my perspective on Christmas from a Jewish background. I hope it will both encourage and inspire all those who take the time to read and consider these thoughts.

No other birth has stirred as much controversy nor has evoked as much praise.
