Do You Want a God You Can Understand?
23 June 2017

Why You Don’t Want a God You Can Completely Understand

Perhaps a better question would be why would you want a God you could completely understand?  It is so you can feel equal to God? So that His decisions would be more palatable to you? So that you could relate better, or perhaps so you do not need to trust Him.

controlling your anger

What is Truly Meant by Controlling Your Anger?

The key to controlling your anger is not taking charge of it like you would a child, or an employee, or a car. Once you lose your temper, you are no longer in control. Controlling your anger means you find a way to control when and why you get angry. Anger is not necessarily wrong, so being in control isn't the ability to suppress your anger, but deciding what you should get angry about.

How Do I Know If I Have Enough Faith?

How Do I Know If I Have Faith?

Since faith is essential to the Christian life, many Christians wonder if their faith is strong enough or is quantifiable enough to impress God into answering their prayers and seeing God work wonders in their life. Even asking the question, "How do I know if I have faith?", shows the lack of faith and expresses the doubt in your heart. But your faith isn't based on your present doubt, but on what you do to overcome your doubt.

Tackling Stress With a Sense of Humor

A sense of humor is essential for handling the stresses of life. The ability to find something funny in life is a key feature to discovering joy in a sometimes rather dreary world. Laughter allows you to bleed tension out of your mind and body. It allows you to deal with difficult situations.

How to Help Someone With a Broken Heart

It can be agonizing to watch a friend or loved one suffer through a broken heart. However, there are things that we can do to help them through it. Now if you did the heartbreaking, that would be an altogether different situation. If you broke someone's heart accidentally, you can probably help the healing process with a heartfelt apology and doing everything in your power to make up for the wrong. If you did it intentionally, for whatever reason, the odds are unless you think you made a mistake and try to fix it, everything you do will only add to the other person's pain.

Can You Forgive and Forget?

Is It Possible to Forgive and Forget?

We've heard it said often that we need to forgive and forget. What a wonderful thing it would be if we could actually forget the wrongs done to us! Wouldn't it be great if by forgetting, we could erase all the pain, all the worry, all the stress, and all the negative emotions from the wrong? I know I'd love that. And if there is a magical formula somewhere on how to do it, I certainly would want to know about it. Life would be easier if we could forgive and then forget.

Why Does God Hate Me?

Why Does God Hate Me?

If you are asking the question, “Why does God hate me?”, then probably you are looking at your life, the circumstances you’ve found yourself in, your relationships, your financial situation, or your health and you don’t like it. People who think this way usually face traumatic events or situations that, when compared to other people around them, seem to be unfair. Since they can’t see why they have to struggle and others do not, they can only see one explanation. God must hate them.

How to Overcome Bad Habits and Bad Character

How to Overcome Bad Habits and Bad Character

One of the hardest things you'll do in life is overcome a bad habit. The key to overcoming bad habits or bad character is self accountability. If a person isn't held accountable, there is little motivation to change. And a person accountable is a responsible person. Therefore, a responsible person is always viewed as a mature person.

Who Created God?

Who Created God?

You have questions about God. You aren’t alone. In fact, the number one search in the United States of people who have questions about God is: Who created God? Since each of us has a beginning, we have a hard time conceiving of a being with none. In fact, it is easier to comprehend no end (who likes to consider their own mortality?) than it is to understand no beginning.
