Worship: Our Gift to God by Dr. Allen D. Curry
I'm probably the world's
worst gift-giver. I'm notorious for goofing up. I err because I'm not
sensitive and don't pay attention to what people like. You may ask, "What
does that have to do with worship?" If you really want to please your
wife, you give your wife something she wants. Who knows best what she
wants other than your wife? Likewise, that's the way we should understand
worship. God desires praise, honor and adoration. If we want to give God
proper worship, we must give Him what He wants.
Seminary Behind Bars by Paul Schwarz
When people try to emphasize the simplicity of something, they often resort
to the cliche, "It isn't rocket science." But when a rocket scientist
is performing the activity in question, it brings an entirely new meaning
to the saying. Such is the case with a program administered by RTS and
its Virtual Campus. The Charlotte-based RTS Virtual Campus provides anyone,
anywhere, with access to a seminary education without the need to actually
relocate to a physical campus.
Training Ground by Paul Schwarz
Murzin was an atheist. That's what he had been brought up to believe in
his native Ukraine, which at the time was still a republic of the Soviet

Europe, conditions were ripe for change not only in Andre's spiritual
perspective, but also in Ukraine itself.
Hazardous Materialism by J .V. Fesko
certainly recognize that idolizing any possession or thing is inherently
wrong; God commands us not to raise up any idol in our lives. Anything
that takes the place of God, namely Jesus Christ, of course, is ultimately
a bad thing. Yet for the inquisitive mind, naked commands often only generate
questions in the heart, questions about why materialism is such a dangerous
foe to the Christian. What about materialism makes it so deadly?
True Confessions by Paul Schwarz
Mike Herrin and
Jonah have something in common. Of course, Mike hasn't been swal-lowed
by a giant fish and spit out onto dry land after three days, but like
the Old Testament prophet, he has run from God's will for his life. In
Mike's case, the belly of the fish was a high-school classroom in Valdosta,
GA, and instead of being there three days, he stayed there three years.
And whereas Jonah went to Nineveh, Mike went to RTS-Jackson.

concerned investor called his stockbroker. The volatile stock market was
making him nervous. He wasn't sure whether to hold or to sell his stock
portfolio. He asked his broker, "What is the market going to do over
the next few months?" His broker responded, "I think we can be
pretty certain the market will either go up or go down."
