Also, for the sake of brevity, I am going to use term “apostle” for the title of each point instead of my usual “apostolic” (I usually use the term as an adjective rather than an…

Seven Contrasts between Fathers and Teachers

The Bible teaches us in 1 Corinthians 4:15 that we have many teachers but not many fathers in the church.

I speak as a person who functions in and understands…

7 Signs That Help Discern Between Flakey, False Prophets, Part II

Should the Apostolic Usurp the Authority of Pastors, Churches?

Recently I have been reading some articles critical of NAR (the so-called new apostolic reformation) which (oftentimes) correctly calls attention to some abuses perpetrated in the name of the apostolic.

Why Pain is a Catalyst for Purpose and Power

Pain is unavoidable in this world. The primary kind of pain I am referring to throughout this article is emotional, mental and psychological. Jesus promised us that in the world we will suffer tribulation John 16:33. (Both physical and emotional in this context.) There are many different reasons for pain: some pain is self inflicted,…

Why Many Mid-Life Marriages End in Divorce
