BLOG: What God intended for good

It’s unfortunate that today, the practice of “herbalism” is more often than not intertwined with ungodliness. Herbalism becomes spiritualism and many times crosses lines that God’s Word tells us not to cross. Like many facets of life, people take something that God made—something He even intended for our good—and they corrupt it with evil. James 1:5 tells us, “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all...

Blog: It Doesn’t Matter That He Chose a Grapefruit

I went to college with a friend whose dad would do something every time we went to his house that would forever change my life. Upon hearing us come, he would immediately stop whatever he was doing and walk over and turn off the television. He would then invite us to sit down at the dining room table and would peel a grapefruit and ask us about our day. Even though he always started the conversation, I recall that he really didn’t do...
