How We Went from Theological to Therapeutic Preaching

There has been a growing trend among Evangelical pastors and churches over the past fifty years regarding the demise of theology and its subsequent replacement with psychology.

When most people think of how to choose their friends they have more of a worldly, casual concept rather than a biblical one. In John 15:15 Jesus told his disciples He called them friends and not servants. Since the Kingdom of God is based upon relationship and not ministry, it is important we know how…

Ten Reasons Many Contemporary Christian Worship Leaders Are Spiritually Bankrupt
