How Should We View the Six Days of Creation in Genesis 1?

gen1080_pp_2

In Genesis 1, we read about God creating the universe out of nothing. The creation of the world is said to take place over a span of six creative “days.” For centuries, there has been discussion and debate about how to interpret the “days” of Genesis 1. This discussion has only intensified in the past 200 years as modern scientists, especially in the areas of physi...

Frontline Prayer

prayer-1497680

Do we really believe that God answers our prayers? Jesus says in Luke 11:13 that “If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Jesus promises us here that God will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask for him. And along with the Holy Spirit, God the Father ...

The Credibility of the Resurrection

jesus-resurrection-life-1038x576

There is much more in the way of evidence, but suffice it to say at this point that the best explanation for what happened to Jesus Christ, why the Romans never found his body, why millions of people have given their lives to his service, is because what the Scriptures say happened actually did happen. Jesus was raised from the dead. It is true. It is credible. It is verif...

Easter and the Power of Stories

bigstock-Old-open-book-with-magic-light-55266845

Humans have always loved stories. We love to watch victory snatched out of the jaws of defeat, to see the forces of light fight back the darkness, to see the hero emerge triumphant after he or she has endured many trials. We love to see the princess rescued, the dragon defeated, and the treasure found....

Yesterday my family and I were able to attend the 50th Annual Martin Luther King March on the East Side of San Antonio. Some news outlets reported approximately 300,000 people in attendance. The San Antonio march is the largest of its kind in the country. It was quite a sight to behold: people of all types - African-American, White, Hispanic, and more - walking together to...

How the Enneagram Can Help You Spiritually

EnneagramType

I love Personality Tests. I have always found them to be a fascinating way to learn more about myself and to learn more about other people. There is certainly the risk of making unfair assumptions about people based on their Myers-Briggs profile; but in general I believe they are helpful tools for us....

Worship Is A Contact Sport

Hello, Christ Church Family and Friends! I have often said at Christ Church that worship is a "contact sport" and not a "spectator sport." What I mean by that is that joyful worship is something that you as a participant are involved in. You are not there to watch, you are there to worship. So, how are we doing? In particular, how are you singing? Singing is one of the mo...

Songs of Summer

Throughout my life, certain songs have been representative of summertime. I can remember growing up and listening to the same song over and over as I enjoyed the relaxation of summer. To this day, when I hear an old "song of summer" I am taken back to earlier days. Summer is ideally a time of slowing the pace of life. It is a time to take a vacation. It is a season for ...
