The Real Church Isn’t Perfect

The Importance of Prayer

Written by Leanna Westerhof. Media by Tyler Wright. Prayer is key. At least, that's what everyone has always told me and it has been one of the typical Sunday school answers for longer than I have been alive. People have always asked questions about forming a relationship with God. The answer? Pray and read your bible. Done. Easy. Simple. Or is it? Why is it so hard to make time to pray? Making time for God ...

Morality vs. Preference

Written and Media by Ben Casey. If you spend enough time on the internet, you’ll find the phrase, “Only God can judge me,” is thrown around quite a bit.

Written by Leanna Westerhof. Media by Kayla Morton.

A Worthy Fear

Written and Media by Tyler Wright. Psalm 33:8 - "Let all the earth fear the Lord - let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him." What does it mean to "fear God?" Are we commanded to actually live being constantly afraid of God for the sake of His power and authority? It's not an uncommon response, nor is it invalid, however, it's not accurate either. So how do we make sense of a command that co ...

Your Body is a Temple

Written and media by Ben Casey. The phrase, “It’s my body, I can do what I want with it!” gets thrown around to avoid judgement when eating unhealthily. But as Christians, it isn’t our body.
