Can Christians Be Demon Possessed?

The recent rise of Greg Locke’s “deliverance ministries” and his controversial statements about witches telling him that members of his congregation are demon possessed has led to a resurgence of the argument over whether or not Christians can be demon possessed. For many, the very idea is unfathomable, because the Holy Spirit lives within the… Continue reading Can Christians Be Demon Possessed?

I must admit that the idea of being a professional blogger has always intrigued me to no end. I am an avid fan of researching a wide variety of topics, and I love to share that information with as many people as possible. Throughout my writing journey, I have failed spectacularly on more occasions than I would care to admit.

The Family: A Godly Home

“Home is where the heart is,” so they say. I have heard this phrase often, but it did not resonate until I had a family of my own. We have lived in several apartments and houses in two different states, but we grow closer together because we are able to stay together. We have already… Continue reading The Family: A Godly Home

The Family: Marriage and the Role of Husbands

It is often said that the Lord established three institutions – religion, civil government, and the home. The Devil has sought to destroy these institutions ever since their initiation. We are seeing a real time attack on all of these as we look around society today. Biblically based churches are losing ground to false gospels… Continue reading The Family: Marriage and the Role of Husbands

Supernatural Stories in Scripture

I have watched movies – including documentaries and “reality” tv shows, read fiction books, researched academic documents, and even went on “paranormal investigations” as… Continue reading Supernatural Stories in Scripture

Daily Walk (Part 4) – Prayer

We have already covered the basics of the daily walk and Bible study, but what about talking to God? This is the part of my daily walk that I most often take for granted, but I am sure that I am not alone.
