Are you mad at God? Yelling at Him and asking, “Why are you doing this to me?!” That might be a good thing.
New Testament Book # 20 – James
How do Chinese religious affairs regulations general provisions compare with America? The track is different, but the goal of both is to redefine Christianity.
Why pray to God when people don’t want to listen anyway? Seriously, why would a Christian Pastor say, “We ought to pray as if it all depends on God”? And to make it worse, follow it up with, “But we have to work as if it all depends upon us”?
Four years ago, I wrote Christians and abortion: Will Christians abandon God over abortion? The impetus for it was Disney, the state of Georgia, and proposed abortion legislation. Well, things have changed dramatically since then. Therefore, my new question for this update is Will abortion drive people away from Christianity?
Do you know what Christian practical atheism is? Have you ever even heard of it? It was new to me when I read about it this morning. The bigger questions are: once you know what it is, are you a Christian who’s actually a practical theist? In any case, you probably know some. Intrigued yet?
Does Christian gossip make you want to avoid church? Do Christians gossip? Yes. Even in church? Yes. We are people, so the answer’s got to be yes. No, we aren’t supposed to.

People are less happy over the last decade. That really shouldn’t be a surprise. At least, not for people who are honest. While the number of millionaires and billionaires continues to rise, the number of people falling lower on a socioeconomic scale is rising even faster. That, and other factors, leads to a general feeling of being “less happy”. Maybe a better way to put it is just plain unhappy.

Do men and women have different reasons? Or is that men, supposedly, don’t gossip? Like, maybe there’s another name for it when it’s men? Maybe, like the image says, with men it
How come so many Christians don’t really know God? That’s not a stupid question. In fact, it’s a very important question with a very disturbing answer. It’s all too easy for Christians to not know God! The headline shocked me. 51% of Churchgoers Don’t Know of the Great Commission, according to a Barna survey. I also found it very disappointing. Depressing even.
