One way to prepare for Church on Sunday is to pray for your time at Church on Sunday!  For some Saturday is busy with preparing sermons, Sunday school lessons and children instruction.  Take that time to pray for your ministry but also consider also praying for the church overall, that God would use you and the rest of the members to build up believers and glorify God through worship on Sunday.

It’s Saturday, Pray for your Church on Sunday!

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

As a pastor of young people I think it pays dividends to know apologetics and also be biblical in one’s teaching and living out of a biblical view of singleness, courtship, marriage and parenting.  Questions related to those areas come up often.

So I want to put it down in writing something I often say in preaching and counseling for those who are single (not yet married).

That quote will be below.  But first I want to state a principle: My brothers and sisters when considering someone as a potential spouse please court someone who loves God before anything else.

There’s a video titled “I Stopped Believing In God After Pastoring A Megachurch” that went viral posted by Buzzfeed.

The original video is here:

I wanted to write a response but I see there’s no need to reinvent the wheel since there’s a Christian video response already out there:

I thought the response did a good job pointing out the incorrect transactional model of God that led this “pastor” to atheism.  But that’s not the Gospel nor biblical Christianity.

For those interested in the past I wrote a post titled
