Laughing at the Gods

Back when I learned Greek Mythology in High School, I did not understand. I could not grasp the importance, the value of such knowledge. But some of the stories were entertaining. And I can very well remember the enjoyment when one of the gods fell into ruin and misery. These gods, so full of themselves, so self-important, deserved to fall and there was a feeling of justice when they did.

I have often written on the problem of celebrity in our culture and specifically in evangelical culture. The celebrity often gets in the way of the gospel…

Although the storm is raging

By Jessica Dixon

God never said life would be easy but He did promise it would be worth it.

He promised us every sunshine for every storm.

For every trial there is also a joyous moment.

I don’t know what you are going through right now or what has gotten you down but I do know that God is right there beside you helping you and carrying you along your way.

Why We Should Care about Doctrine

When Dorothy Sayers wrote that the doctrines of the Church are relevant to all of life, she wasn’t stating what was obvious to everyone else. She was pointing out something more terrifying—that Christianity as a system of beliefs is viewed as irrelevant and that this was an idea attaining cultural dominance.

People believe exactly opposite of what is true, that what we believe about God, sin, and salvation could make any real difference in how we live among each other, hence her motivation to write and present ‘Creed or Chaos?’

The Vanity of Loveless Prophets

By Wendy Alsup

Conservative Christians love their gifted leaders. We love inspirational sermons that make us think. We appreciate teachers who can deconstruct arguments and analyze trends. We love leaders who sacrifice. We flock to hear messages from those who have endured loss or lack for the sake of the ministry. And we LOVE great music—good bands, inspirational choirs, or talented worship teams. 

But I’m not sure we really love what God loves.

 My Fears … My Savior

2610512951_988c9dce9d_z

By Henry Neufeld

As evening was approaching that day, he said, “Let’s go to the other side.” So he left the crowd, and they joined Jesus in the boat where he was already sitting. There were other boats with him. And there was a violent wind storm and the waves were coming over the side of the boat, so that it was already filling with water. And he was in the prow sleeping on a pillow. So they roused him and said to him, “Teacher! Doesn’t it matter to you that we’re dying here?  So he rose up, rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Be calm! Shut up!” And the wind stopped and there was perfect calm. Then he said to them, “Why were you afraid? Don’t you have faith yet?” Then they were very afraid, and the said to one another, “What kind of person is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”  Mark 4:35-41 (HN)

What makes you afraid?

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
