Formulating our faith is like playing Jenga. Some beliefs can safely be tapped, poked or removed for inspection; others cannot. Jesus' resurrection is the cornerstone of our faith. If we take it out, the whole tower falls!
Baptism is an important part of conversion. But do we make it too important? We must be sure not to emphasize baptism more than the Bible does. Doing so makes it an idol and reduces it to a "divine dunking booth"!
Yesterday we remembered those who serve our country. Let us also remember those who serve our Kingdom. William Tyndale gave his life translating the Bible into English. We owe him more than we can imagine!
Christians are often portrayed as burying our heads in the sand to avoid the facts. Despite this, we are more open to considering the facts than anyone! Paul bases our belief in Jesus' resurrection on cold, hard facts.
I love doing puzzles. Nothing is worse than realizing you're missing a piece! The American church is missing the most important piece of all. We must center our lives and ministries on Jesus' resurrection.
