    Posted on February 15, 2017 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Have you ever considered the difference between faith and thinking positive? Is faith the opposite of reason? Do we fully understand the meaning of the word? Christians believe that none of us can earn forgiveness and deliverance from our sins and sorrows. We are taught that we can be saved only by faith. So faith […]

    Paul, the early church apostle is probably the most famous Christian who ever lived.

And yet Paul himself admitted […]

  • Crazy for the Glory of God?

    Posted on November 22, 2016 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living, Podcasts.

    2 Cor 5:12-15: “If it seems that we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit. Whatever we do, it is because Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for everyone, we also believe that we have all […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
