The Best Question to Ask When Starting a Conversation About God

194 copyEver found yourself looking for a way to initiate a conversation about God, but not sure exactly how to start? I’ve been in similar situations with people I don’t know (i.e. on airplanes, while waiting for a seat in a restaurant, or while watching a soccer game), and I’ve tried a number of approaches. I continue to return to one simple, effective question, however, to start the most important of all conversations. I’ve come to believe this is the most essential evangelistic question we can ask: “What do you think happens when we die?”

5 Ways to kill sin

Struggling against sin seems like an uphill battle. We take a step forward only to take two back. We struggle with the same sins over and over. Sometimes believers think they can either fully remove the battle of sin from their lives, or they think there can be little or no progress against the habits that tempt them daily. Yet, God’s Word shows a much more realistic vision of how to battle sin in our lives. Here are five blessings God gives us to help us fight sin:

1. Abide in prayer.

The Reliability of Scripture: That Which We Have Seen with Our Eyes


Monadic Nouns


What Are The Roles Of The Father, Son, And Holy Spirit?

Verses like John 14:28, where Jesus says, “The Father is greater than I,” have led to confusion in the church. The Bible seems to clearly teach that God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all equally divine. They all possess the same attributes of deity. Then how can Jesus say the Father is greater than him?

The early church developed the doctrine of functional subordinationto clarify the roles of the three members of the Trinity. Theologian Norman Geisler explains this doctrine in Systematic Theology, Volume Two: God, Creation:

All members of the Trinity are equal in essence, but they do not have the same roles. It is a heresy (called subordinationism) to affirm that there is an ontological subordination of one member of the Trinity to another, since they are identical in essence . . . ; nonetheless, it is clear that there is a functional subordination; that is, not only does each member have a different function or role, but some functions are also subordinate to others.

3 Reasons To Fix Your Eyes On Jesus

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.”

– Hebrews 12:2


It’s impossible to focus on more than one thing at a time–at least it is for me. I cannot fix my eyes upon one thing while focusing on something else, so in this same way, we must make our focal point Jesus Christ and not the things around us. When Peter actually walked on water for a brief time, he was okay as long as he kept his focus on Jesus. It was only “when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, ‘Lord, save me’” (Matt. 14:30)! That’s when “Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. ‘You of little faith,’ he said, ‘why did you doubt’” (Matt 14:31)? How was Jesus able to keep Peter from drowning? Peter had to take his eyes off the winds and fix them back on Jesus so that he was able to be kept from sinking.


Paul often compared the Christian’s life to that of a runner who strains ahead and reaches forward toward the finish line. But no runner who keeps looking back over their shoulder can be successful. Paul wrote, “I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 3:12b-14).


None of us have ever seen Jesus in person, but we still believe in Him. Peter had seen Jesus, but he still wrote to those who hadn’t, “Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls” (1 Pet. 1:8-9). Jesus said, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed” (John 20:29b). We cannot see Jesus now, but we can see His Word, and that is the Bible. Since Jesus is the Word (John 1:1, 14), we can see Jesus in the Word. We see Jesus with the eyes of faith, faith that He lived a sinless life and died to reconcile us to God. We shall know Him in Person someday, seeing Him face to face for the first time (1 Cor. 13:12). That’s enough for me.


The author of Hebrews gives us most excellent advice: “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith” (Heb. 12:2), which is why we must “throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” (Heb. 12:1), and we shall not stumble as long as we fix our eyes upon Jesus.
