Do you ever wonder when we have an injury to our bodies or we have an illness that comes upon us and it doesn’t ever seem to get healed even though we’ve prayed for deliverance?

Did Jesus promise a “Cross” or “Earthly Prosperity?”

thFBEC3A63

What do preachers such as Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin and Oral Roberts have in common? Well, they all preach some form of a Gospel message known as “prosperity”, “health and wealth” or “name it and claim it.” Take a look at Joel Osteen for instance.

In other words, a Christian is promised worldly prosperity and deliverance from sickness in this lifetime. All we must do is go out and claim it for ourselves. But, is this true? Continue reading

God surrounds us and is closer to us than we realize Continue reading

To believe means to have faith in something. Continue reading

Pope Infallibility – What does it mean?

th[4] If the Pope is infallible, does that mean everything he says is true and correct? It is a misunderstanding to think that whatever the Pope says is correct and that you can take it to the bank. No, it does not mean he is sinless, or that he can predict football scores, knows what the winning lottery number will be, predict what the weather will be in any part of the world on a certain day, or that he cannot make a mistake. That is not what is meant by being infallible. You see, infallibility simply means Continue reading
