Your Legal Rights as a Christian According to The Bible

If you are familiar with spiritual warfare then reading Ephesians 6 will come as no surprise.

Your Legal Rights as a Christian According to The Bible

When it comes to dealing with a variety of confrontations and bad situations it is often very difficult to know which way to turn.  

One of the big problems as a new Christian was that we had not been given any teaching that would help us understand the behaviour of other people. I know it might seem as a cop out, but in reality being of the world as we all are, we are conditioned to respond in a way that is consistent with everybody else.

I recently visited Venice and was struck by the contrast of new, old, restored and “work-in-progress”. In part, the erosion of the world around us is quantified by our inability to identify works of art.

We Need to Grow and Not Be Held Back By Anyone Including Ourselves

We must start listening to God before its too late?

We are nothing unless we grow, not in height, but in faith. Every year serves to show us our progress, so we can say to ourselves "this time last year…"

One hundred years ago people were still reading the same book (The Bible), going through the same problems and dealing with the same influences of drugs, sex, behaviour, relationships, health and finances.

Is silent prayer the same as thinking and should we pray out loud?

When it comes to praying should we do it in silence and if so how is it different to thinking?

Is silent prayer the same as thinking and should we pray out loud?

There is a great deal of uncertainty in the Christian faith about how to pray. We all want our prayers to be answered and of course we expect God to hear us. However can prayers be effective if we simply think them or should they be spoken out loud?
