On Discipline and Self-control

By Bettinna Carlos Every time a brand new year ushers in, we are most compelled to change our ways or revert back to our good old healthier ways. But like the start of last year, you realize that as the months progress, we tend to digress from our so-called “resolutions.” Truth is, 69-percent of all New Years resolution lists have to do with weight loss and diet.

Facing Challenges to Faith

By Dr. Harold Sala … being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  Philippians 1:6 Eventually, your faith will be challenged, no matter how strong or how weak it is.  It may be challenged by an agnostic professor or perhaps more likely it will be challenged by the trials of life.  Sooner or later something happens and your heart cries out, “Lord, I just cannot handle this.”  It may be a child’s illness, or a marriage that turns sour, or a business...
