Unholy Shadows: Gnosticism


One cannot begin to appreciate the early struggles of Christianity for existence without at least a rudimentary knowledge of its formative history. Thus, it behooves us to take a brief look at Gnosticism and its challenge to early Christianity.

Union with Christ Unites Us to One Another


Jesus knew He would be abandonedOn the night He was arrested, Jesus knew His disciples would abandon him and scatter. "Scatter" means that not only would they be separated from Him, but also from one another.

Your Focus Determines Your Reality


"Your focus determines your reality", this famous line was spoken by Qui-Gonn Jinn of Start Wars-The Phantom Menace fame.Ok, perhaps it is really infamous and you don't remember that quote.

Knowing Hinduism or Hindu Religion


Hindus are concentrated in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka and these places have been the hot spot of this culture since time immemorial. Unlike other religions, Hinduism does not recognize a single prophet and has multitude of gods and goddesses, mythologically numbering at around 30 millions! Such a figure is given in mythology by people of wisdom who have included all such perceptible forms as things of worship, so that man can see god in them and respect the existence of such all forms (plant, animal, stone, sky, stars, soil, water, rain, fellow human being, etc.

The New Urban Christian


Who are these new Urban Christians? What's up with the afros, long hair, grunge or gangster attire? Have you been to a Christian rock concert? You can hardly tell the difference between it and a Rolling Stones Concert - there are crowds of long-haired teens and young adults, swaying to the music, holding up lighters. Have you been to a Gospel concert? It's just like going to see any popular R&B artist - everybody's in their nicest clothes (which includes low riders and midriff tees), fur coats are front and center and people drive up in Hummers, Navigators and Escalades, bling-blinging away.

What Is True Egalitarianism?


Why did the founding fathers of the United States consider egalitarianism to be such a necessary value? True egalitarianism is based on tolerance for differences. It is a principle of integrity much more than a rule of law.

Theology, Hollywood Style


After years of watching TV shows and movies, I think I have finally gotten a grasp on Hollywood's theology and it's not a pretty picture (pun intended). It should come as no surprise to anyone that Hollywood's theology is vastly different from that of the average American.

Biblically Speaking of Evil and National Security


We have been learning to think Biblically and speak Scripturally about evil in order to teach our children about the dangers present in our fallen world, while setting our affections on things above (Colossians 3:2) and staying Spiritually minded (Romans 8:6). We first noticed that "it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret" (Ephesians 5:12), so we don't speak of those things.

The Kabbalah of Love: Part One


(This is the first article in a new series on the Kabbalah of Love - stay tuned for upcoming articles!)Intimate Love.What feelings do these words stir up in you? Longing? Excitement? Pleasure? Fear?Whatever the feeling, if thinking about intimate love makes your heart beat faster, I'm not surprised.

The Need for Biblically Minded Engineers


There is a great need in the world today for engineers who think and work from a Christian worldview. These engineers are needed to design, prototype, develop, and manufacture goods that support family economies, as opposed to city-corporate-paper economies, which strain the traditional family.

Crazy in Love


Several years ago my cousin was pleased to find out that she wasn't going crazy,she found out that what she suffered from was O.C.

Are You Missing What It Takes To Resist Sin?


I don't care how much you go to church or read your bible sometimes no matter how hard you try to resist sinning you end up finding yourself giving in to it anyway.I know first hand because this has happen to me on countless occasions.

How Should We Pray?


Many Christians often wonder, "How should we pray?"I'm going to touch on this subject of prayer a few more times in the upcoming weeks, so today we'll deal with asking for forgiveness in prayer.This question of prayer isn't a new one but is in fact one that the disciples asked Jesus while he was still roaming the earth.

Possibilities in Prayer


Prostrateology is the theological term for the doctrine of prayer. Prayer is the oldest form of worship and is universal to all types of religions and believers.
