Heart Disease in the Body of Christ

Well I have to post this one by Pastor Ray. I'm guilty of this myself and wish I had thought more about the consequences. I was a pastor once and had no excuse for doing this in a church I was a vital part of. I'm so glad God sees our stupidities and forgives us anyway.  The good news is that it hurt me a lot more than the pastor, but in a way we are all a little less because it is a break in the harmony that should be among brothers and sisters in Christ.

Heart Disease in the Body of Christ
James 3:14-16
Every church has trouble sooner or later.

Churches sometimes have difficulty getting enough members together to make up a quorum for a business meeting. But there’s one easy way to get far more than a quorum: Announce a moral scandal, a doctrinal controversy, or an impending church split. The sanctuary will be jammed with people.

Conflict always draws a crowd.

Every church has problems, some large, some small, and every church face…

Her Abusive "Christian" Marriage She couldn't believe this was her reality.

The numbers are staggering. Narcissism is on the increase and most of it has to do with mental illness and a sense of entitlement. However it is really difficult to discern if you are dating a Malignant Narcissist. What may look like just over the top confidence or masked odd behavior is often a pitfall for the intended wife/husband. The intended may start out with buying you gifts or taking care of bills even offering to move in or marry you and take care of you. The woman/man is flattered by all the attention and agrees to open up her/his life to this "loving individual." However even before the marriage gets started there are signs that need to be looked for that tell you danger is in the making...
Signs to look for when dating that tell you that you're in a relationship with a sick, Malignant Narcissist!1. They seem likable — at least, at first glance. 2. Not all narcissists are loud and proud. In fact, some are quiet and shy at first. 3. They crave to be noticed and as…
Once again I am posting a message by Pastor Ray Pritchard. What Jesus did on that cross was more than just die in our place for sin. If you understand why a blood sacrifice was required you will understand that Jesus not only met the requirement but exceeded them because He gave us so much more. There really is no reason why anyone should have to perish in hell, but it is a matter of choice. God built within in us a free will to choose. He didn't raise an army of robots to serve Him. He wanted those who most understood their need for savior. Our salvation was not only blood bought but blood secured-His blood!

Four Ways God
Guarantees Your SalvationHebrews 6:13-20 “Jesus, if you are real, come into my life.”

It happens that I’m writing these words very near the 48th anniversary of the day when I knelt on the concrete steps outside my home in Russellville, Alabama and prayed those simple words.

That was not a “textbook” prayer.…
