    God's grace is amazing. All that Jesus did through his death, burial, and resurrection was for your benefit. All that he did was for you to have access to the grace of God. God has extended his grace to you and it's up to you to receive it by faith. Romans 5:1,2 says we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ and by him also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand. It's in your hands to receive the grace of God by faith. Romans 4:16 says, "Therefore it is of faith, that it...

    President Obama is struggling to get to 50% — not just of voters in November -- but of Americans, at any time, who will recognize that he is a Christian. The Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion and Public Life released a survey Thursday showing that just 49% of Americans described the president as a Christian, while 17% said they believed he was Muslim. Just before the 2008 election, a majority, 55%, described then-candidate Obama’s faith as Christian, while just 12% said he was Muslim.

    This is not a good week to be a journalist. Watching the massive 24/7 coverage of the massacre in Aurora, Colo., coverage that will only serve to inspire some future twisted male mind to seek infamy -- to die hated but not unnoticed -- one cannot help but be disgusted. As journalists, it's understood to be our duty to do things like call up a mother in San Diego to inform her that her son killed 12 people, all so we can then report endlessly on what her cryptic response means or did not mean. Airtime must be filled; an...

    In a speech to a wounded nation, presidential hopeful Mitt Romney returned to his roots of faith in the face of a national tragedy.-SNIP-The Bible-laden references in Romney's speech also signal to evangelicals who worry about his Mormon faith that he is drawing from a familiar text."I think he's growing more comfortable and today's speech is further evidence of that, talking about his faith in the public arena," said Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council. -SNIP- There are still undoubtedly theological tensions between Mormons and evangelicals that won't be resolved in the presidential campaign.

    Over the course of his life, Marco Rubio has prayed in Mormon sanctuaries, Catholic cathedrals and Protestant worship centers. According to the book, Rubio put forth the same energy he directed to the LDS teachings to the traditions of the Catholic Church, and still considers himself a member of the Church to this day. As a young man, he attended services with his wife at Christ Fellowship Church in Miami, but never felt the same attachment that he did to the ancient church. After years worshiping in a Protestant congregation, Rubio says, a campaign supporter brought him back to Catholicism....

    Acts of faith are performed each day in this country, and we are all the better for it. But sadly, Barack Obama does not seem to have faith in the American system, nor does he believe in American exceptionalism, nor does he believe that Americans can make it on their own without government handouts. In short, Obama doesn’t have faith in us. Faith has become an inflammatory topic in the 2012 election. In policy, speeches and campaign ads, the president has used faith as a means to demagogue his Republican opponent. Faith has been used by the left-wing extremists as...

    Faith Rest True rest in soul and spirit is found only in the presence of God (EXODUSE 33:14; PSALMS 116:7). Rest cannot be found in escaping from our problems. Even David would have liked to have flown away (PSALMS 55:6), but there comes a time when we must face our problems and stand on our own, a time when we cannot lean on anyone else but God. Outside of faith there will always be chaos; spiritual rest is unattainable to those who will not believe (ISA 28:12; ISA 30:15; ISA 57:20-21; MATT 11:28-29). God has provided in His Word a...

    Strange Tests Sometimes God's commands make no apparent sense at all; when that is the case, it is because He does not want them to make sense to us. God does not do anything without a reason, and He can always be trusted absolutely to be devising good. Sometimes He just wants us to show that we understand that, so He gives us strange tests. Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is rewarder of those who seek him. (HEB 11:6) To Abraham the test...

    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Notice it says faith is the substance of things hoped for, in other words faith gives substance to what you hope for. Let me give you an example you will understand, everyone is familiar with a heating and cooling unit. If it is 80 degrees where you are and you want it to be 70 degrees, you set the thermostat on 70 degrees and that unit sends forth and releases the air(substance) that changes the temperature. But, notice that substance has to be...

    Tiger Woods failed to make the cut yesterday at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, N.C. – the second straight year he has done so. It is the first time in his otherwise illustrious pro career he has missed the cut at the same event more than once. Tiger attributed his failure to make the weekend in Charlotte to swing changes he has been working on with his coach Sean Foley. But I don’t think it has anything to do with swing changes. I believe Tiger’s on-the-course struggles – not only this week, but the past two years – have...

    Healing and salvation are part of the same package. The same blood that brought salvation also brought healing. God does not have to do another thing for anyone to be saved it's up to them to receive Jesus as their Lord and saviour just as it's up to you to receive healing. You have to see healing as a finished work of the cross. When Jesus said on the cross, "It is finished", he was not just referring to salvation(redeeming of your spirit), but healing also (1Peter 2:24). Every person who is not saved has salvation waiting on them to...

It seems more and more the Romney campaign calculus is that the campaign will get the evangelical vote without much effort. As Ben Domenech wrote in his excellent Transom last week: Now evangelicals shift from roughly half the pie in the primary to a quarter of it in the general (they were 24% of voters in 2008). They are making their peace with Romney, but the potential danger, as I’ve noted before, is that their lackluster feelings for him will result in lower evangelical turnout...

"We worship an awesome God in the blue states," he declared at the 2004 Democratic convention, and he has sought since then to rebuild ties between the Democratic Party and the world of faith. Yet no president has faced such sustained hostility over issues of faith, including Republican charges that he is waging a "war on religion," widespread suspicion about the sincerity of his Christian faith, and the persistent legend that he is a practicing Muslim.

Two acts of Parliament broke the bonds with the mother country irreparably. The first was the Stamp Act, which was enforced by British soldiers writing their own search warrants and rummaging through the personal possessions of colonists looking to see whether they had purchased the government's stamps.
