    The film begins in Lafayette Indiana, where a young man by the name of Jeremy Camp (KJ Apa) heads to Calvary Chapel College in Murrieta, California. The first night he gets settled in, Jeremy goes to a Christian concert to see a Canadian band called “The Kry”, and meets its lead singer, Jean-Luc Lagoie (Nathan Parsons). Jeremy asks Jean-Luc how to make it. Jean-Luc tells Camp that “it’s not about making it. It’s about what our songs give people.” Then he asks Camp, “So what do you want to give people?” This question forces Camp to see where his priorities...

    Jesus said we'd have troubles, but He also gave us a promise: "In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33 Let us allow ourselves to be continually transformed so that we more quickly remember all the time that, "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 So what the world without faith can only see as PROBLEMS we can know are really CHALLENGES, and these challenges are in turn actually OPPORTUNITIES -- OPPORTUNITIES to grow...
  • Quick Compelling Bible Study Vol. 42: New Year’s Resolution From God to You

    01/03/2021 6:24:36 AM PST · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | January 3, 2021 | Myra Kahn Adams
    By this time, you might have broken your New Year’s resolution. But fear not, tomorrow is Monday when the new year really begins, and you can recommit. In addition to whatever behavior you have committed yourself to do or not do, this study suggests an all-encompassing, life-changing resolution of thought and attitude. We begin with the backstory; that is the lesson. About 10 days ago, and without any warm-up, husband David announced, “I must decrease, while He increases” was his new guiding-life principle. (Not your typical Adams family Tuesday night dinner conversation.) Since David is a godly man, I knew...

    I want to lay some foundations on receiving healing that I think a lot of people don't understand. And one of the foundations is Isaiah 53:4,5 which says 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. God said that by the stripes of Jesus we are healed, you can't wait until your flesh tells you that is...

    Rush Limbaugh lamented on Wednesday that despite thirty years of unprecedented success on the radio, he has failed to persuade a clear majority of our countrymen of the correctness of the conservative philosophy. In fairness, he has created an army of converts. Rush also admitted that there is compelling evidence that this presidential election was stolen and that conservatives had an otherwise successful election cycle. His introspection followed a self-described Debby Downer caller. She asked the troubling question, what have all of our efforts really accomplished? It appears all is lost. It is a question we all ask occasionally. Particularly...

    Christmas is the most wondrous day of our calendar in any year of our lives. The bright lights, smells, and smiles discernible even to an infant quickly grow into a sense of hope, awe, and mystery as young boys and girls crane their necks on the car ride back from papa’s house to look out the window for a sign of that bright red nose in the sky. As time moves on, our hopes turn to the company of friends and family, and our awe to the sacred mysteries of God made man for our sake. Our experience of Christmas...

    I was flying into Denver a year or so back to speak at a conference. Seated next to me on the plane was a very well-dressed Muslim woman, who looked quite professional in her outfit and her demeanor. About 45 minutes away from landing, she turned to me and spoke: “Are you a Christian priest?” I was wearing my cassock. “Yes,” I responded. “I have never met a Christian before,” she said. “Do you really believe that Jesus is God and that He died?” I was immediately put in mind of an exam I took in seminary. It was called...

    I don't think we know what we have in the word of God. For Romans 1:16 says that it is the power of God unto salvation to them that believe. Don't limit the word salvation, it is taken from two greek words soteria and sozo which means to deliver, protect, heal, preserve, and make whole. But, even though it's the power of God to them that believe we need to know how to put that power to work. Romans 10:10 says with the heart(spirit) we believe and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Confession means to say the...

  • "Messengers Marking Out the Messiah" (Sermon for the Second Sunday in Advent, on Mark 1:1-8)

    “Messengers Marking Out the Messiah” (Mark 1:1-8) In centuries past, in lands where there were kings, when the king was about to go visit various parts of his realm, messengers would be sent out, heralds, to go ahead to each town and announce the soon arrival of that mighty monarch. “The king is coming! Everybody get ready! The king is on his way!” And the people would know what to do. They would clean up any trash littering their town. If there were potholes in the roads, those would get filled in. Got to have everything in order for the...

    Of greater concern is the presence of a gripping fear that is increasingly controlling the lives and actions of many in our society. We are being infected with and motivated by fear. This phenomenon is only heightened by the uncertainties surrounding the recent elections, and especially the highly charged Presidential race. Fear of possible negative political outcomes only fuels existing fears over the Coronavirus. It is a perfect storm for terrorizing a society. Fear is dangerous because it enters a person and sets up shop within the heart and the mind. It lurks within, ready to seize any opportunity for...

    U.S.—A concerning new study has revealed that kids raised in church youth groups are leaving the Christian faith at alarming rates, regardless of how much free Mountain Dew and pizza the church ministry feeds them in high school. "I don't know what else to do," said local youth pastor Kaylen Zedwink, known affectionately as "Z-man" by his youth group. "I've consumed nothing but pizza and Mountain Dew for the last 12 years. My cholesterol is approaching lethal levels now. My body is covered in welts from being constantly shot with paintballs. I spend $1200 per month on cool clothes. I...
  • Who Needs Faith Advisers?

    If I am deficient in my knowledge about chemistry, or a medical issue, or what kind of car to buy, I consult people who know more than I do on these subjects. When it comes to faith, though, I can handle that with a little help from my friends, meaning the writers of the Old and New Testaments, and sermons from trusted pastors who believe in what is written in those books. I don't need a "faith adviser," or "faith leader," which seems to be a trend among modern presidents. After observing faith advisers to President Trump, including some kooky...

    It is because we hope in an eternal savior that we joyfully continue our daily lives. We don't need a week off of classes or work to mourn an election. Our daily joys have suffered no loss of meaning.On Election Night, I was crowded around the television with a dozen college friends in a tiny apartment above our government professor’s house. The Virginia night air seeping through the window was rescuing the feeble air conditioning unit and someone had propped up the three-legged TV with a handful of textbooks. Everyone watched the colorful maps on TV flip colors and we...
