  • People require a human connection, something an OS cannot offer them

    In the movie “Her,” a man in Los Angeles dates his smartphone.

    It’s not as far-fetched as it sounds.

    The movie is set in the future, but not that far into the future, in a time when people feel more comfortable and connected with their pocket-size computers than with other humans.

    In the movie, lonely and morose Theodore Twombly is going through a divorce.

  • Truthful discusssions are best for the ‘nearly married’

    June is the month for weddings, which means no few young men and women in America are sweating a truckload of details. Indeed, there is much to worry a marrying mind. We need only cast an eye to neighbors to see that much can and does go wrong in a marriage relationship, not the least because marriage asks that we live so intimately and sacrificially beside another human being.

  • In times of trouble turn to Jesus for faithful help

    Unlike the ancient Israelites, I’m not in the habit of naming rocks.

    Not being judgmental, just never thought to do so.

    Apparently, the Philistines were set to slaughter the Israelites. Full-on assault, take no prisoners.

    If you recall from the story of David and Goliath, the Philistines were huge, mean and scary. So, when the Israelites heard about the upcoming attack, they went to their leader, Samuel, and begged him to ask God to save them.

  • Loving God allows those with faith to advance through tough times

    As we live our lives, we can face many adversities. These situations give us a choice to face them head on with a great hope, or we can run the other way and ignore or deny.

    Your response to adversity will help you understand where you are in your walk with God. Is it possible that you have been so caught up in trying to figure out why this situation has come upon you, that you’ve missed God?  Has this adversity made your faith stronger or has it left you in a weakened state?

  • Apostolic church plans community day event

    This event has been planned by the church members to let the Carrollton area see what the church is all about.  Everyone in the community is invited. 

  • Don’t prejudge; take time to see for yourself

    Have you ever thought that someone was really different than what they really were because of suppositions you made or things someone told you? Have you ever prejudged someone and then learned that they are not like what you thought — at all? Have you ever negatively stereotyped someone because of what they looked like, who they hung out with, or what they stood for and then found that they were actually a better person than what you thought they were? I mean, you even found out you liked them! 

  • God alone should be the judge of others’ behaviors

    In judging, we play God. A sign of idolatry is the inclination to judge. When people fail to satisfy our demands, we criticize and condemn them in our hearts, if not with our words.

    The truth is that when we judge others – criticize, nit-pick, attack, condemn – we are literally acting like a god. We commit the sin of Lucifer, coveting the judgment seat reserved only for God. Scripture tells us clearly “There is one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you that you judge your neighbor?” (James 4:12)
