The Rich and the Poor

My Christian brothers, our Lord Jesus Christ is the Lord of shining-greatness. Since your trust is in Him, do not look on one person as more important than another.  What if a man comes into your church wearing a gold ring and good clothes? And at the same time a poor man comes wearing old clothes. What …

Hank Explains Resurrection

"Hank, I have a question about resurrection." "What's the question?" "If we go straight to heaven when we die, what's the point of the resurrection?" "That's a very good question, Ede. I'm happy you asked it. It is very clear in the Word of God, that there are two resurrections. The first one is of …

Victory Over Death

Preach the Word

Tempting God and Celibacy

It was a beautiful afternoon so Ede decided to go for a walk. She walked through a field covered with daisies and dandelions. She loved daisies but they had an earthy smell and some of them smelled like cow manure. That was why she was never tempted to pick them. Whether it was instinctive or …

Our Substitute

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, having …

Father Jörgensen’s Questionings

I opened the Bible and read John 10:33; Mark 2:7 and Luke 5:21. There were two definitions for blasphemy.

It’s Not the Same

When you're comforting someone, do you say, "I know how you feel"? I recently realized that a person really doesn't know how another person feels when my sister told me of the sad story of a mother whose two sons were among the victims of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 which crashed and burned in …
