Steve’s Devotional – Garbage In, Garbage Out

By: Steve Brown on Monday August 28, 2017

One of them: If you memorize Scripture, pray a lot and do religious stuff, you will sin less, be more obedient and have a powerful witness for Christ in the world. The principle is: Garbage in, garbage out. I’m a lot older and somewhat wiser. I now know that this idea suffers from two fatal...

You Can Miss It If You Try

A president by the name of Abraham Lincoln lived in an Illinois log cabin. An organist and choirmaster by the name of Johann Sebastian Bach served a small church in Germany.

Grace & Racial Division

By: Steve Brown on Tuesday August 22, 2017

I'm excited because things are so bad. Are you crazy?  Maybe a little, but actually I’m not…because when things are really dark Christians have a light. Not only that, the darker it is, the more others can see the light. When it gets dark enough a little light will do. If...

By: Steve Brown on Monday August 21, 2017

I have friends who like to feel pure by saying that they don’t plan sin. They suggest it sort of sneaks up on them and, before they know it, they are caught. I guess they think that, if they didn’t plan it, God will understand and love them more. Frankly, if that is true, I’m in serious...

A Religious Show

By: Steve Brown on Wednesday August 16, 2017

God’s Laughter is Contagious

By: Steve Brown on Wednesday August 9, 2017

It isn’t that we aren’t doing things right, that we aren’t trying, that we don’t care. It isn’t that we have ignored God’s commandments or been unfaithful to Christ; it isn’t that we have become apostate. I spend a considerable portion of my time traveling around the country and for...
