The Holiness of Christ

Ghandi: “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so much unlike your Christ.”  Christians criticized, but Christ lauded.  Sometimes, deficient view of Jesus; other times, hypocritical actions of Christians.  Yet, if Jesus was simply a Mother Teresa type character, why was he crucified?  He was “hated without a cause” (John 15:25).  No justifiable reason as to why they hated Him—except that His presence and teaching hi-lighted their sin: “the light has come into the…

The Life of Faith: A Study of the Book of Joel

Introduction  October 29, 1929—also known as Black Tuesday.  On this date, share prices on the New York Stock Exchange completely collapsed, becoming a pivotal factor in the emergence of the Great Depression. Would completely altar history, and would be told for generations to come.  We look at these people in a special way—they learned to value what was truly important, a certain character about them.  When we open our Bibles to the little known book of Joel we discover a…
