But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame. 1 Peter 3: 14-16
It is written that faith comes by hearing…hearing through the word of Christ. My own life testifies to this eternal truth; countless seasons of discontentment and or discouragement met their brutal demise and bloody death by God facilitating the hearing of His word proclaimed or from the counsel of another exhorting the name of Jesus
Can you imagine the despair in the room? Put yourself in the shoes of the students in that classroom as they watched their teacher drop. As the gunman shouted to the Christians to make themselves known! What would you do?
As a College minister I can’t help but be deeply affected by it. Tragedy has struck yet another college campus. Just
John Gee is a Christian Hip-Hop artist from South Mississippi. Born and raised in the Deep South, John is a product of his country roots.

Periodically, I love to share material that needs none of my assistance. I have a dear brother in Christ McKinley Caughman who constantly drops gems for the masses on social media. I am standing on his shoulders today. Thank you so much for your faithfulness brother! The Heidelberg Catechism contains so many of the glorious truths
Why write an article on pride when we can read God’s Word and witness the utter destruction of any insinuation that pride is tolerated by God.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.
Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go
My wife Esther and I are continuously blessed by our marriage. Like many Christian marriages we have experienced an array of seasons filled with joy as well as others that have required healing, self-sacrifice, long suffering, love, compassion, grace, necessary change, adjustments, and consistent repentance. All of the many seasons require

Because man is dead in sin, he is incapable to initiate a saving response to God. In light of this, God, from eternity past, mercifully elected a particular people unto salvation (Ephesians 1:4–6). These people are comprised of men and women
5 ways to be successful in College
One of the hardest things about working with college students is growing in friendship with them over a summer only to watch them leave for school come August. After unsuccessfully trying to convince them to stick around and attend the local college, the only thing left to do is to
We condemn network news media as false & fabricated and then cite it as a reliable source to make a point; we condemn the use of social media by monitoring and using social media. We indict those who court attention and we court attention to bring attention to those who court attention.
We grumble and complain about the people who grumble and
The bible is saturated with people of God chosen by God to steward and proclaim His message. Not their message HIS MESSAGE. The message of God’s redemptive work: the gospel. The message of judgment, repentance, and the warning to live a life worthy of the Gospel. Noah wasn’t rude but for 120 years they ignored the message and the world
Many times this year I would be sharing the Gospel with someone and all of a sudden it would dawn on me, “I can’t believe I’m getting paid to do this!” It is an incredible privilege to be paid to be in full-time ministry, and its something that we should never take for granted. I learned so much in my first year and hope
What did you think about when you heard of Robin Williams suicide? What was your first thought? For a friend of mine it was the following words:
Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eyes.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?
On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Pastor Alex, let me start by welcoming you to the Good Light Project. I am grateful that you are able to carve out some time for us to conduct this interview.

Some of the world’s most staunch atheists have been repeatedly asked where human beings derive values, ethics, and morality from. Richard Dawkins, a well-known atheist, says that society develops and cultivates social norms on its own.
He suggests that a society naturally arrives on an agreed code of ethics, social and cultural norms, belief
Energy spent looking internally for answers to the hardest spiritual conundrums we face are futile. We are constantly confronted with the reality of sin; our sin or the sins of others can instantly set us back spiritually and emotionally. It is imperative the church has the right perspective on relationships, finances, politics, church, and God.
Back in 2012 I decided to create a website for christian apologetics and a place for believers to work through social and spiritual issues through the lens of scripture. Overall, the concept was simple and truthfully not very original. Looking back now, ultimately I tailored the content toward young Christians who shared the same Reformed
