Why Children Grow Up and Abandon Their Parent's Values

It is amazing how many stories I hear of children — even in good Christian homes — that grow up to abandon everything they were taught, abandon church, abandon the values, morals and standards their parents hold to and jump pell-mell into a life that ends up consuming them — much like the story of the Prodigal Son. I'm glad the Prodigal Son came back; I just wish he would've never left to begin with.

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.

Friendship Revivalism

As I was seeking the Lord for the topic of this article a thought seemed to go through my mind. How would I describe to a single individual the path to personal revival? I have preached countless sermons on the subject through the years, always under what I was convinced was direction from scriptures and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

This article relates some of the issues that we discussed.
