"This is a very special award. I am extremely honored to have it presented by Joe Montana and Aaron Rodgers. I am humbled by this recognition and grateful to my family, Pat Bowlen, John Elway, John Fox and the entire Denver Bronco organization, and of course, my coaches and my teammates." - Peyton Manning on winning his 5th MVP
Home Away From Home. Perhaps Shereesha Richards' constant calm demeanor can be traced back to her Jamaican heritage, where being laid back is a way of life. But there's a good chance it comes from a quiet confidence in her burgeoning relationship with Christ.
Whatever the case, Richards rarely gets nervous. And even when she does, it's impossible to tell. Take, for instance, when she and her University at Albany basketball teammates traveled to LaSalle University for a non-conference game las
In 1941, a difficult 70 year long prodigal son story began to unfold in a hospital bed in wartime Soviet Union. Nursing a shoulder wound from the Battle of Bryansk, Mikhail Kalashnikov, would set out to create weapons that would help defend his homeland from German invasion.
My fiance and I got engaged several months ago, but I've discovered he gets upset when he doesn't get his way. Sometimes he's even gotten very angry and fairly violent, although he always apologizes and says it won't happen again. Should I be concerned?
Christians drink beer. So do non-Christians. Christians also make mistakes, just as non-Christians do. My faith doesn't make me perfect, it makes me forgiven, and provides me the assurance I looked for half my life ago. I think God answered our prayers with Cooper, and that was a test of our faith. But I also think I've been blessed-having
Q: I've led a fairly rough life -- alcohol, drugs, jail, broken marriages, you name it. But two months ago I gave my life to Jesus, and it's made all the difference. The problem is, no one believes me when I tell them I'm different now. How can I convince them?
Q: If I had to make a list of my faults, the first thing on the list would have to be "impatience." I wish I was a more patient person, but I'm afraid it just isn't in me to be that way. Does the Bible say anything about this?

Q: Our pastor recently retired after almost 25 years, and I've been placed on the committee to search for a new one. What kind of person do you think we ought to look for? Must it be someone just like our old pastor (which is what some people want)?
Marijuana is ordinarily used as a mood-altering, mind-altering drug. The aim is to create a kind of euphoria. The effects vary widely from person to person. All you have to do is Google, "What does Marijuana feel like?" People don't smoke it to get unhappy. It produces a temporary state that is felt to be better than ordinary life. That's why it's called a "high" and not a low.
December 27-30, about 3,600 college students met in Louisville, Kentucky, to consider the global glory of Christ, the nature of Christ's mission to the unreached peoples of the world, and the power of the Christian gospel. For some of us, this was a dream come true.
My aunt says God never gives up on anyone, but it's not true with me. I've broken every commandment God made, and turned my back on God so often that I know I must be hopeless. I'm not even sure I care. Does that shock you?
I've never admitted this to anyone, but I'm beginning to wonder if I'm drinking too much. It's not like I'm drunk very often (I'm not), but I need a few drinks to get through the day, and a few more to calm down at night. Do you think I'm in danger of becoming an alcoholic?
More than 100 years ago a man was converted to Christ and became a pastor of a church in the slums of London. He went to the poor and the down-and-out and the oppressed. He formed a little group called the Hallelujah Band, and he would stand on street corners and preach the Gospel.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." ; "I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."; "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ...
Most of my life, I've thought it would be exciting to live in a big city, and when I graduated from college last year I took a job in one. It pays well and all that, but I've never been so lonely. Did I make a mistake?
From its inception, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been deeply concerned with its relationship to the life of the Church. The men who were active in the establishment of the F.C.A. were, without exception, active Churchmen. The men who comprise the Board of Directors, the Advisory Board and the Executive Committee are all active in their respective churches.
The individuals who participate in F.C.A. City-Wide Programs,
In these verses we have the five steps of temptation:
1. The temptation itself. "But each one is tempted . . ."
The evil thought knocks on the door of your imagination. As they say, "Opportunity knocks once, but temptation beats on the door every day." It happens to the best of us; there are no exceptions. There is no sin here yet. It is not the bait that constitutes temptation, but the bite. There's still a way out.
In 2012, sociologist Robert Woodberry published the astonishing fruit of a decade of research into the effect of missionaries on the health of nations. The January/February 2014 issue of Christianity Today tells the story of what he found in an article called "The World the Missionaries Made."
We added retweets and favorites, from the data we have available, to gather the top twenty-five tweets from @JohnPiper. They deal with deep, spiritual insight, practical preparation, major current events, and especially relevant resources. And they speak to Taylor Swift, the Boston bombers, President Obama, and everyone else. Sometimes it's just sentences that change us. May God use these to help you, whether for the first time or one more time before another year of reflection and retweeting.
This is Mr. Ulahannan and his wife Mary. They were just nominal christians in the Catholic Church in India. They have three daughters and all are married and live in different homes.
Though they are catholic church members, they lived as worldly people. Whatever functions they held at home as marriage, engagement, baptism of children, house warming etc. alcohol was a must.
Q:A few weeks ago, a fast-talking salesman got my elderly mother-in-law to sign an expensive contract for something she doesn't need and can't afford, and certainly will never use. Why are some people so cruel, taking advantage of someone like this?
Everyone needs a new beginning - whether it be from a personal failing, tragic past, or in the desire to pursue a dream. The need for renewal is not only what we embrace at the New Year; it's also at the heart of salvation itself. With quotes from respected literary, theological, and historical figures, this video inspires us toward the resolve and hope of a fresh start.
