WASHINGTON, June 21, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ — A year after the tragic death of George Floyd and a national debate over race, reparations and racial equity in this country, television news digest CURE America with Star Parker, delves deep into “The State of Black America” on the challenges facing African-American communities and how to solve them…
“We weren’t calling for a hatred,” pastor James E. Ward Jr. recalls. “We weren’t calling for destruction. We’re calling for peace and speaking the love of God over the city. And it really went viral.”
This is one of those double take passages of Paul’s, v.18 says we saints are “able to comprehend” the love of God, then v.19 says that same love passes [all] knowledge. Simply put the love of God is evident in and to all His chosen (God’s people), and only through this practical personal experience is such love known.
Lord, I cannot illustrate,
the mystery of Your love
for it rises higher
then the moon above.
I cannot measure it,
not the distance or the length
I cannot grasp it
not its power or its strength.
I cannot describe it,
not how near or how far
I cannot spell out it
not even with all the stars.
I cannot calculate it,
not the width or the depth
I cannot fathom it
not its expanse or its breadth.
I cannot imagine it,
beyond what my eyes see
and yet I am amazed
to infinity You love me.
Lord, I cannot illustrate,
this mystery from above
yet I am determined . . .
it is an everlasting love!
That Christ may dwell in
your hearts by faith; that ye,
being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with
all saints what is the breadth,

He had to ‘learn the lesson’ just as we do!
(You will find it helpful to listen to the audio above, as you read the text below.)
“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in need.” Philippians 4:11-12
Life is a ‘school’. All its experiences are ‘lessons’.
We are all in ‘Christ’s school’–and He is always ‘educating’ us.
Disciples are ‘learners’ and all true Christians are disciples.
We enter the lowest grade when we begin to be Christians.
We have everything to learn.
Each new experience, is a new lesson set…

It’s Father’s Day weekend. Here in Idaho, the women just finished an annual women’s-only bike ride that attracts participants from around the world. At one point, I contacted them on social media to ask if there…
Context: Matthew 7:1–6 delivers Jesus’ declaration that His followers must not pronounce God’s judgment on each other. Those who do try to take God’s role in this way will be judged in the same way themselves. Human beings are not qualified to pronounce judgment because they are blind to their own sin. To help another with a speck in his eye, a person must first remove the log of obvious sin from his own eye. He also warns against wasting time or effort on those who clearly have no interest; they won’t appreciate it and may attack you for it.

You have heard me say (or seen me write here) many times my old Army saying that the maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters. The Bible confirms this in Romans 1:20.
Today especially with the advent of all the online resources mankind (for the most part) really has no excuse of any kind not to be highly educated concerning Biblical matters. It is easy to download an App and compare the original Hebrew or Greek text against quality English translations.
Are there still some parts of the Bible where we scratch our head and say “why did God do that,” of course. But that level of understanding God’s personal thoughts or actions and clear Biblical Doctrine are two completely different things.
Understanding and applying the instructions God left us (the Bible in one sense is an instructions manual) rightly is not some great mystery, only a little hard work.
Romans 14:10–12, says that all will stand before the judgment seat of Christ. The question today is will you be without excuse?
Father’s Day 2021 comes at a unique moment in American history. According to the CDC, births in the U.S. reached record lows last year, with the number of births and the general birth rate both falling by 4 percent. The number of new fathers in America is currently at its lowest point in 42 years…
Does “inclusive” history have to be sanitized history?
What do we do when great people do bad things, hold bad beliefs, or support bad causes? (Cancel them?) Across America, communities are arguing over what to do with statues of and memorials to great figures in American history, whose actions or belief…

Ty Smith — a black man who has two sons, 17 and 19 — absolutely annihilated critical race theory during his comments to an Illinois school board earlier this month, saying it will teach children of different races to “hate each other” and will reverse Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream that all people may be judged by the content of their char …
