If I give 10% will God make me wealthy, right?
Some people look at God as an investment plan. They donate a percentage of income and God gives a return on their investment. But why is that not the case for every person? Where in the Bible are we commanded to tithe? What is God’s standard for giving? What does God promise me when I give? We will try to unravel this Christian Urban Legend.

    “If I Have Faith I can do anything…right?”
    Sometimes it seems people treat faith as a magic wand. We just wave it and God answers. Other times it can be used as a club to make God do what we want. So what is faith and how do we exercise it? We must be careful to trust God and not demand of God. How do I apply the passages regarding moving mountains and asking what we want from God?

    Does the Bible Teach that I must Forgive and Forget?
    C.S. Lewis wrote: “Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive...” (Mere Christianity p. 104). When we add to that reminder the idea that we must forgive and forget if we are to be Christlike, then forgiveness seems almost impossible. It is important to understand what forgiveness is, what it is not, and how to apply it. Then we can correct the false notion that we are to forgive and forget.

    Everything Happens for A Reason…or does it? (Jeremiah 29:11; Romans 8:28)
    Does God manipulate situations and circumstances? Did God cause me to get sick and lose my job? Is it possible that some things just happen? As we think through the common statement “Everything happens for a reason” we have questions. For the Christ Follower they are questions about the sovereignty of God. We don’t know the mind of God but we have the Word of God for guidance.
