Are You a ‘Have’ or a ‘Have-Not’?

By Bill Behr
The story of Anders Breivik is very sad. The mass murderer admitted to killing innocent Norwegian men, women and teenagers in a bombing-and-shooting spree in 2011. He was recently sentenced to 21 years in prison.  What brought about this great tragedy?
He justified the 77 deaths, and more than 240 injured, as necessary to [...]

Our Past Does Not Dictate Our Future in Christ

By Bill Behr

We all have developed beliefs about ourselves. Those beliefs have been shaped by our experiences, the happy and sad events in our lives, what we have heard others say (whether true or false) and what we have learned.

The start of a New Year is exciting as fireworks light up the night in displays of celebration and hope. The dazzling colors and streaking shapes remind me of the spectacular fireworks I enjoyed as a kid on the Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve.

There are approximately 18 spiritual gifts listed in the New Testament, primarily found in Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, and Ephesians 4.

How Should We Help the Homeless?

This important question has not been answered well, in part, because there are so many facets to homelessness. The truth is, if we are followers of Jesus, then His command to “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27) means that we are all called to serve the homeless, because they are our neighbors. They live [...]
