    3 Guidelines For Running The Race Of Life

    Races have a certain hype or excitement to them, whether it is horses or people who pit their energies and strength against one another.  Anyone who has ever participated in a race, be it a 5 or 10-kilometer run, or a marathon, realizes that pacing yourself is very, very important.  The individual who exhausts his energies early in the race has nothing to draw upon when the finish is near and he needs that extra reserve, that extra kick, to finish and win.

    What Sin Really Does To You

    What Sin Really Does To You

    There are 66 books that make up the Bible, but when it comes to devotional reading, the book that most people are probably least likely to select, might be the Old Testament book of Leviticus.  The word Leviticus came from the tribe of Levi, who were the priests and worship leaders of the Jewish people.  Leviticus was written as an instruction book for the new nation of Israel.  Leviticus instructs in right living a people who were following a divine King—God, rather than a human king.

    How Do We Respond To Population Growth?

    Defining the problem is easy; knowing what to do about it is the difficult part.  Every time the earth circles the sun, there are 250 new people that have been born.  United Nations data projects that there will be 11 billion people by 2100.  These figures, of course, are statistics--numbers which scientists, biologists, and demographers argue over.  They draw lines and battle over how many people the earth can sustain versus our human potential to provide for a growing population through science and technology.

    4 Guidelines To Understanding God’s Promises

    "Dear Dr. Sala," writes a friend of Guidelines. "I do have one question that has been bothering me for a long time....  How do I know that I can claim a promise of Scripture when it is (in the context of the Bible) spoken to someone else?"  Our friend went on to quote Mark 11:24, where Jesus said, "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."

    What To Do With Unbelief

    What To Do With Unbelief

    Sitting on the hills overlooking the Sea of Galilee, Jesus taught people in a talk known as the Sermon on the Mount.  Found in the Bible book of Matthew, chapter 5, he assigns blessings to people with curious personality or situational traits, and in some cases, what we'd call flaws. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3) is where Jesus begins and it’s where each of our own spiritual journeys, our relationship with God, starts.

    The Difference Between A Non-Believer And An Unbeliever

    The Difference Between A Non-Believer And An Unbeliever

    He is known for being strong willed, stubborn, and doubting.  His name:  Thomas, one of the twelve disciples who walked with Jesus.  Mentioned a dozen different places in the New Testament, Thomas is usually thought of as a "show me" sort of person, short on faith and long on doubt.  But, is this characterization really accurate?  Or was Thomas a perpetual pessimist, the kind of person who describes the partially filled glass of water as "half empty" instead of "half full?"
