By Danny Parkes

Dear Dave, I thought I would write you to wish you and your family season’s greetings. At this time of year, many people celebrate many different things. And when I was young, Jesus was not really part of the celebration. Today, it remains true that many people who celebrate Christmas do not celebrate the birth…

Sex, God, and Life

By Danny Parkes

The issue of sexual relationships is an important one that many people differ on in terms of their opinions. It used to be, long ago, that I believed in sexual relationships before marriage. And I had no real standard to go by, as many do today, and so I could not really define what was…

Touch Not the Lord’s Anointed?

By Danny Parkes

There are many teachers out there, and all including myself have flaws. I believe that generally-speaking, it is bad practice for people to “name call” by stating why their theology or teaching is better than someone else’s. In my practice of writing many hundreds of articles, I have only called out by name just a…

My Life-Changing Testimony

By Chris Foran

I was raised in a nominal Christian home which means that I attended church on a weekly basis. I was provided with a relatively safe environment – I never went without food or clothing.

The saved – and the lost

By Danny Parkes

There is a difference between the saved and the lost, and it is summed up, I believe, in a word: commitment. Of course, the commitment I am speaking of is directed towards the Lord Jesus Christ.

By Danny Parkes

I had a dream while at the Vineyard during those short but life-changing nine months. I did not understand what the dream was about. But I did know it was supernatural. It was very clear that it was supernatural but you are going to have to accept my word on that, because there is no…

Parable of the 10 Virgins

By Ruth McMillan Mayfield

Recently the Lord had me read through the entire Bible in about a month’s time. It was an amazing adventure filled with insight and revelation about the Word of God, His perspective and my own faith. It impacted my life much like a forty day fast–although it was a 36 day feast! One of the…

Meet George

By Danny Parkes

Meet George. George is a man who sounds a little funny sometimes. Actually, he believes in some weird things. I honestly can’t remember the exact things that he believes in, but he believes in certain things like flying saucers from outer space landing on the earth, and things that, generally-speaking, are considered by most people…
