  • Are You a Spectator or a Participant?

    Posted on October 28, 2016 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living, Podcasts.

    When I was a skinny young boy growing up in the Columbus South Side, I was often confronted with my limitations. Maybe that is why I so loved to read about my comic book heroes, like Superman, the Iron Man and Spiderman. And there were of course my Biblical heroes: David, who killed the giant, […]

  • Christians and Politics

    Posted on October 13, 2016 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living, Podcasts.

    My thoughts and feelings along these lines have swayed over the years. We know that as Christians the condition of our hearts toward God is of primary importance. We also know that governments and laws cannot control people’s hearts. We should know that God has Himself established governments and that we are to be ideal […]

  • Feelings of Powerlessness

    Posted on May 20, 2016 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living.

    Have you ever been frustrated with feelings of powerlessness in every day situations? Peter, in a letter to his fellow believers gave some instruction that could help. “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10 NIV) Paul also taught that […]

  • How important is the church?

    Posted on March 19, 2016 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, New Covenant, Podcasts.

It is reported that an estimated 4,000 churches close their doors every year, and that about 3,500 people are leaving the church every day! What does this say about our triumphant Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? Is He failing to build His […]

  • Abundant life, Eternal life, Resurrection life.

    Posted on January 9, 2016 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    In the Bible we see a contrast between what it means to be physically dead or alive, and spiritually dead or alive. Remember God’s word to Adam in the beginning. He could eat the fruit of all the trees in the garden, including the Tree of Life, but if he ate from the tree of the […]

  • Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

    Posted on December 31, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    In the late 1960’s a Rock band by the name of Chicago had a hit song containing this line, “Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care about time?” For people in many countries in the world, today’s date, December 31, marks the end of a year. Midnight at the end […]

  • Are we living in the “Last Days?”

    Posted on December 12, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Anyone who listens to the news these days has reason to wonder about the state of the world and perhaps our own personal safety. For over a century now, many groups of Bible-believing Christians have interpreted the many tragic events as signs that the end of the world is very near. But it might surprise […]

    Isaiah 2:2-4: And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go […]

    Posted on November 11, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living.

    My father and four of my mom’s brothers were in the Navy right after I was born, at least one during the Korean Conflict. Now my grandson Nick Beaty is in the Army, having already served in Afghanistan. His experience and that of his family is so much closer to us, and we are so […]

  • The Bigger Picture

    Posted on November 4, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living, New Covenant.

    The Universal Church is the body of Jesus Christ. Every person who has been baptized into Christ by the Holy Spirit is a member of that body. (1 Corinthians 12:12-14). When the members of His body gather together to celebrate and worship Him, that is a meeting of the local church and it is an […]
