Unconventional Wisdom

History is full of examples of with examples of otherwise intelligent people who acted on deeply flawed assumptions—and paid a high price for doing so. We as Christians are not immune. Even a highly committed, very sincere Christian will not be protected from a decision based on flawed assumptions.

Does a Dark Valley Mean a Wrong Turn?

August 19, 2018 by Mark Stuenzi Message 1 of 4

When life gets difficult, one question rises up in our hearts: Why? We want to know the reason behind our suffering. Many people assume that their pain is God’s payback.

Before long we can get caught up in keeping a list of rules. But do more rules really make you more spiritual?
