Big Business Belief

Wat een ramp, die vermenging van geld en geloof.
 

Verborgen helden

Gewone helden hoeven niet zo nodig op een podium gehesen te worden
 

Kiezen voor de stilte?

Er gaat iets mis als er wordt gezegd dat God alleen tot ons spreekt wanneer wij onze gedachten helemaal uitschakelen.

The King’s Offer

Imagine a great and generous king. In the midst of his benevolent reign, he hears his subjects have revolted. He sends messengers to investigate. The rebels kill them. So he sends his own dear son, the prince. They murder him viciously, hanging his body on the city wall.

Through Heaven's Doorway

When five-year-old Emily Kimball was hospitalized and heard she was going to die, she started to cry. Even though she loved Jesus and wanted to be with him, she didn’t want to leave her family behind. Then her mother had an inspired idea.

Where Do We Find the Motivation to Invest Eternally?

Peter encouraged Christians to find joy by focusing not on the trial that will go on only “a little while” but on their heavenly inheritance that will never perish. As missionary martyr Jim Elliot put it, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” Why work for what has no lasting value? Why...
 

Is It Unloving to Speak of Hell?

If you were giving some friends directions to Denver and you knew that one road led there but a second road ended at a sharp cliff around a blind corner, would you talk only about the safe road? No. You would tell them about both, especially if you knew that the road to destruction was wider and more traveled. In fact, it would be terribly...
 

Raising Daughters Who Will Attract and Recognize the Right Kind of Men

My wife Nanci and I raised two daughters whom I respect deeply. When the first was born the Christian doctor said to me in the delivery room, “Sorry, dad. It’s a girl.” I looked at him without appreciation and said, “I prayed we’d have a girl.” A girl was what I wanted and I’ve never had a moment’s...

Thinking of Retirement as the Next Opportunity to Serve Christ

When it comes to the “retirement dream,” we must ask, “Whose dream is it?” It may be the American dream—but is it God’s? For some people, retirement has replaced the return of Christ as the “blessed hope,” the major future event that we anticipate. (Try doing a Bible study on the subject of...
 

How should we view and respond to people of different religions?

First of all, we view them as created in the image of God, valuable, precious in God’s sight, and therefore they should be precious in our sight. We should treat everyone with respect. As a matter of fact, even if we have an enemy and that person was attacking us, Jesus said, “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you”...
 

More Tales from the Tolerance Thugs

OK, it is now official. It has been a close contest, but I think a winner can be announced here – even if just by a whisker. There are many contenders for the Tolerance Brigade of the Year Award. Plenty of groups come to mind. You know the ones: they scream the loudest about tolerance, acceptance and diversity, yet are the most intolerant, u...
 

We Are the Resistance

It really does not take much to spark a thought for a new article. This article took a split second to conceive. Elsewhere a kind soul sent me a brief message which included these words: “God Bless you and your family Bill Muehlenberg. You are a voice for the truth and such a critical part of the resistance.” I thought right away, “Yes, exactly – w...
 

Tales From the Resistance

Every person who names the name of Christ is part of the Resistance. We are resisting the world, the flesh and the devil, and we are taking a stand for Christ and the Kingdom. We seek to reclaim territory lost to the enemy, and make the lordship of Christ preeminent in all things.I have just penned a piece on this, reminding us of our role as...
