We're Looking For Board Members

The Discipleship Center is in the middle of establishing our 501c3 charity, and we need board members. If you have ever been on a Church board, or even on a Church committee and work well with others and like to contribute to ideas in a non-profit organization, I invite you to look at our website to see if our ministry could be part of your ministry. The Discipleship Center is an evangelical, fundamental, non-denominational para-church organization. If you don't know what that means, but don't like being pigeon holed and labeled, you may very well be who we are talking to. If this sounds interesting, please look over our website and if you would like to talk about this opportunity, please c

Thanksgiving Tribute 2017

It's that time of year again when I think over all the influential people in my life and I focus on them for my Thanksgiving tribute, and since my focus is going towards The Discipleship Center and away from the core discipleship website, I will continue my tradition of a Thanksgiving tribute on this site. With the passing of my mother in law, I am realizing that time is of the essence and if I am ever to let those who mean so much to me know, so I had better do it while they are still alive. By far, the single most important and influential person in my life that I am eternally thankful for is my dad for so many reasons, but I've never told him so. Not many of my friends or counselees know,

Who Created Sin

As I'm writing the Old Testament survey lectures for The Discipleship Center, I'm reminded of a conversation I had online with a friend of mine who asked "Who Created Sin"? Sounds like such a simple question doesn't it? But if you take a moment to think the question through, you could come up with all kinds of heresies like "God created everything so he must have created sin", or "Someone else created sin, so God didn't create everything", or "God is not powerful enough to stop someone from creating sin"... and the list spirals further downward in implications. Anytime we come to a dilemma in the Bible, we need to use our rules of interpretation, and the one I want you to remember for this

A Time To Consider

I was up in Michigan for my mother-in-laws funeral this past week and I had the opportunity to preach at her funeral. The hard part was determining what to talk about that would lead up to presenting the Gospel, but the Gospel is easy to talk about because it's the only hope we have for this life and the life yet to come. I'd like to share with you the excerpt from my sermon today, as we should consider our standing with God before it's too late. Take a moment to grieve It’s ok to grieve. In the face of the death of one of our Lord’s best friends here on earth, Lazarus, our own Lord wept. Jesus wept not because he didn’t know where Lazarus was, and not because He didn’t have the power to

Just Get A Job

Growing up in working class America, I often scoffed at people who were living off of the welfare system. The idea was, if I have to work for everything I have, why doesn't everybody. However, now that I'm a little older and have become more involved, I see some of the problems that nobody ever thinks about. 1. Generational Poverty: Some people have been born into a family that was born into a family that has been unemployed. Their grandparents are on government programs, and their parents are on those same programs and now instead of being trained on how to do better in life, they are trained on how to apply for government programs. 2. Substance Abuse: When some people are "down on th

How great is OUR God

Today is November 11th, 2017 and I woke up to the news of another terrorist attack in New York where some radical Islamist killed multiple people with his truck while yelling "allau akbar", but all of the news outlets were reporting that he yelled "God is great". There is a difference between "allah is great" and "God is great", and it's an important difference that everyone should know. 1. Allah isn't a god, but a thin veil over the face of Satan as he joyfully decieves people into hell. 1st Corinthians 8:4-6 we know that “an idol has no real existence,” and that “there is no God but one.” For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth—as indeed there are many “gods” and ma
