  • 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 […]

    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 […]

  • Remembering their sacrifices

    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 […]

    Luke 3:16-17: “John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I comes, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, […]

  • A Testimony

    Posted on September 8, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Many years ago I had an experience that I have shared with only a few people. Lately I have had the urge to write down what I can remember in hopes that others might be encouraged. In the early seventies my life was dramatically changed by a series of events which brought me to a […]

  • Why Suicide Bombing?

    Posted on July 20, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living.

    It has always been difficult for me to understand the impulse to end one’s life. Today, we hear a lot about how religious beliefs can lead a person to suicide. We are told that those who kill innocent people in the name of their religion are promised a place in the afterlife of eternal bliss […]

    These days I have been hearing that the Bible is not the Word of God, because Jesus is the Word of God. The statement that Jesus is the Word of God made flesh is actually found in the Bible. But did Jesus Himself believe that the Bible is not the Word of God? When being […]

    In these past few weeks we have been underscoring the fact that the great emphasis of Jesus in His earthly ministry was the Good News of the Kingdom of God. It is interesting to note that in the New Testament, the phrase “Kingdom of God” is found 69 times, while the phrase “Kingdom of Heaven” […]
