Hiring a Christian Contractor

Hiring a Christian Contractor Let’s just say that you belong to a church, and there are a few contractors that everyone uses at the church. These contractors are nice people and you know them to be generous and giving Christians. You’re thinking about doing some work to your home and are entertaining the thought of actually hiring one of them. I would like to point something out here, that most Christians, might not realize. However, there are plenty of Christians that know this to be true. Not all Christians are honest. I know, that probably shocks a lot of people, but it’s actually true.

Christians’ Road to Success

Christians’ Road to Success There is hardly anything new under the sun. This is very much known and recognized by Christians.

Without goals and plans there can be no real success. God also has goals and He does have specific plans to achieve them.

Christian Principles ? Christians and Unclean Language

Christian Principles ? Christians and Unclean Language A Christian friend, new to the faith and troubled by a foul tongue, asked me to prove that the bible condemned cursing. For the unlearned, this could be a difficult task. The bible does not specifically define what is unclean language.

Did the Apostle Peter actually go to Rome?

 By: University Prof.Emeritus Mr. Stergios Sakkos. Part 1. The Vatican’s recent communicatory rapprochements, both towards our Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarchate – which the pope had visited on the occasion of the Patriarchal Throne’s celebration of Saint Andrew’s Day (30th November 2006) – as well as towards the Church in Greece – whose archbishop had visited the pope (between the 13th to 16th December 2006) – have both brought to the forefront once again the fundamental papist claim which had led to their original secession from the Orthodox Church : the papist dogma regarding the primacy of the pope. This is supported by papists, on the basis of the decision of the 1st Vatican Council (1870), according to which, the pope is acknowledged as the vicar of Christ and His sole representative on earth; … Read entire article »
