Guilt is a quiet killer in the Christian community. I use to think why do people struggle so much with guilt when they have Christ as their savior, who not only died for sins, but also their guilt? Then I became involved in something that took a great number of hours a week to accomplish […]

Why Have You Done This?

by Ladd

When God called the children of Israel to enter the Promised Land under Joshua’s leadership he called upon him and the people to be courageous and strong.

Let me illustrate what we were talking about in the last post. The children of Israel according to the commission given them in the first chapter of Joshua were called upon to be strong and courageous. They were not to be dismayed or frightened by the task of conquering the land promised to them. The […]

The Giants the Haunt Our Souls

by Ladd

The problem for the children of Israel when they entered the Promised Land was they hadn’t paid attention to what God had told them. In order to understand Judges we need to look at the first chapter of Joshua and God’s directives for His people as they conquered the land. The reason this is so […]

Infected With Sin

Sin is not primarily breaking the law. Sin is breaking the heart of God and if we can absorb that into our hearts we will begin to understand the book of Judges. Sin is the condition of filling our hearts with other people, things, possessions, and desires that push God into the background. Sin is […]

Planted by the Living Water

by Ladd
