Don’t Forget the Tears

By: Steve Brown on Monday June 24, 2019

We’re right and they’re wrong. That would be a freestanding and true statement except for the implications. It’s dangerous to be on the wrong side of truth when it comes to biblical issues. It, of course, has eternal implications, but it also has very destructive implications to a nation and a...

What is Repentance?

By: Steve Brown on Wednesday June 19, 2019

The source of spiritual power is repentance (the very opposite of self-righteousness). Wait, wait. Repentance isn’t what you think it is. It’s so very different from what most people think that I tried to find another word for it. When the word repentance comes up, most of us think of a weird...

“Jesus, I Knew You Would Come”

By: Steve Brown on Monday June 17, 2019

So he dressed like a peasant and walked the streets. While in a pub, a man pointed to the king and said the bartender, “Who is that man? He looks like a peasant, but he talks like a king.” The most important impact of the incarnation of God in the incarnation of God in Christ....

If You Didn’t Have a Good Father

Remember Who They Are

By: Steve Brown on Monday June 10, 2019

We do not have to defend secondary truth. We are often wrong in our political, theological, and social views. We should be sensitive to the culture in which we have been placed. And we should model the important truths of forgiveness and love everywhere. In other words, there are biblical attitudes...

Identification is Everything!

By: Steve Brown on Wednesday June 5, 2019

I do not know any religionist (including Buddhists) who would seriously suggest that all religions are the same. In the discussion of attitude, there is no more important attitude than identification. In fact, of all the ways the Christian faith is different, this is at the center. The Creator has...

Steve’s Devotional - What about the Past?

By: Steve Brown on Monday June 3, 2019

Sound familiar? All clichés. They may sound nice, but clichés are often just like Band-Aids on cancer…useless. We all have a past. We all—without exception—have a skeleton hanging in the back of our closet. What do you do about your past? Let’s check out lessons from the Apostle Paul in...
