Searching for: "Brandon Batchelar"

  • Tim Stafford

    You believe God can still do miracles, but how do you know which stories are true? A blind man suddenly sees. A lame man gets up and walks. A little boy is raised from the dead. You believe the Biblical accounts that these miracles happened, but do you believe eyewitness reports that miracles still happen today? Between shady faith healers, weeping madonnas, and gimmicks like holy land water, it’s difficult—even foolish—to believe every miracle account we hear. So how do we discount the fakes without missing out on the real miracles in the process? Award-winning journalist Tim Stafford shares captivating stories of modern-day miracles, wrestling over what is credible and...read more

But the fact is, God gave each of us unique talents for a reason. When we offer up the gifts He’s given us, He will transform them into something bigger than we could have ever imagined. He might even work a miracle, like turning one lunch into a meal for 5,000 people. Or turning Austin Gutwein’s favorite hobby into an international AIDS relief organization. What gifts do you have to offer? Discover your gifts and see what plans God has for...read more

    Domesticated Jesus. Or “DJ”. It’s a horrible name—but a name that accurately reflects what each of us has done in our own lives. “I can hear your protests,” says author Harry Kraus, “and believe me, they are my own. Jesus Christ cannot be domesticated! I’m talking about the way I make myself big. And in the process, I’ve domesticated the Almighty. Tamed him. Advised him. Put him in a box. Expected him to function like a divine vending machine. That sickens me. Shocks me. And it should.” All of us try to domesticate Jesus, too—in little things like doubt, anxiety, or fear about the future. We let him into our lives, but only...read more

  • Scott Douglas

    A witty, sincere look at modern Christianity. American Christians are constantly bombarded by images and messages that claim to represent true Christianity. But learning how to argue against the latest liberal transgression, embracing the current Christian media darling, or even singing the right Christian music won’t translate into an unshakable, authentic belief in Jesus Christ as Savior. When Scott Douglas found that his own image of Jesus was based more on culture than on fact, he wanted more. Join his search for the 100% organic, additive-free Jesus as he gently pokes fun at the culture that has grown up around Christianity. Entertaining, historically informative, and...read more
