Imagine you are a Vietnam vet. You put two terms in the heat of the war. When you came home, anger seeped into bitterness. Instead of parades, you face rots. Disillusioned- your fury only escalated. A few years later you hit on a TV Billy Graham Crusade special and responded to Jesus. Then at your church, a guest missionary from The Gospel for Asia shared the present needs of Viet Nam. You could almost hear the voice of the Holy Spirit telling you to go, but you hated the Vietnamese. These a ...
 
Is it possible to climb the ladder in business in education or in government and stay close to God? What does personal faith in Jesus look like publicly in Monday morning Main Street life?

120 frightened, discouraged people huddled in an upper room, hunted by the authorities, mocked by religious leaders—who would ever suspect that they would take part in the most powerful revolution in history—a revolution still bringing freedom and hope throughout the world?

We want you to discover with us the power that ...
 
The question whether or not gays have the right to marry marches through the courts toward the Supreme Court. Hollywood preaches that children raised with two mommies or two daddies are just fine, and with the new breakthroughs in genetics who needs either a dad or a mom? How did the ultimate Supreme Court Judge get excluded from the discussion? Who do you believe has the right to define marriage and family, and how does all this impact Christ's Family--the Church?
 
Dads—we all want to be good fathers and raise good kids, but was this the goal of the first father? Think the Bible is a book about idealistic morality and goody- goody religion? Its time to get serious about the real truth. If God's purpose was to tell a story of good fathers and good kids, then most of the Old Testament has to be thrown out. It's time to read again and discover what real fathers aim at –fathers like Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Judah, and David, and most of all God.
 
Truth Encounter invites you to join us weekly for Dave Wyrtzen's unique bible teaching combining depth, passion, and practicality.
 
It's the biggest birthday celebration in the world. Macys and Target make or break their entire year in the few weeks leading up to the Holiday and even Hollywood tries to cash in with some major releases. But Charlie Brown and the simple reading of the Scriptural narrative still captures our hearts. Who was this baby wrapped in swaddling clothes as the Father's gift? Where did He come from? How long has he lived? What makes him the most important baby ever born? Matthew and Luke tell us abo ...

More than five thousand years ago the Sumerian people nestled in the fertile plain between the Tigris and Euphrates gave us the gift of writing. The Egyptians at the other end of the Fertile Crescent gave us the gift of artistic culture and meticulously designed pyramids. But nestled in between these two lived a people who gave us a far more pr ...…
 
Radio telescopes probe deep into the vastness of the universe searching and listening for some voice, some evidence of intelligent life.

Is there somebody bigger than you and I?…
 
A soundbite generation. Apply this communication theory to your moral and spiritual training and it means that your pastor needs to package his material in a twenty minute, easy to digest, pep talk. Are you hungry for some meat you can get your teeth into?
 
Would you consider floggings, and rejection by his peers and family a life of comfort and ease? Maybe this idea of coming to Jesus in order to find and easy life hasn’t told us the Gospel truth.

Maybe when you think about your roots there were some bad decisions. Does this mean that you are locked into a life of failure?
 
Have you ever competed in a tug of war? Your triceps begin to shake and you don’t think you can hold on. Suddenly someone from the crowd yells for you to pull harder. Why don’t they top cheering and start pulling? You may have felt this same frustration in your work for the Lord. How can we learn not to get mad and quit but instead, help people ...…
 
Have you ever considered that possibly you have settled for a nice comfortable snooze in your spiritual life when God wants you to wake up and get going?
 
Abandon the packaged “Sound Bites” and force your ears to listen. Let’s get at the very heart of where our moral decisions come from.
 
What would it have been like to be part of NASA after President Kennedy launched the race to the moon? Talk about purpose! The space mission is now getting cut back, but someone greater than a U.S. President has enlisted you in a far greater goal than that “giant leap for mankind.” To live we need a mission. What’s yours?…
 
NFL coaches need to be masters of motivation and spotting talent.

"You can treat someone like dirt until they prove that they deserve your attention." Where does the Bible say that obedience and respect should begin, and how can this light turn on some respect in the next generation?

Family First, Focus On The Family, and thousands of pages written on "How to be Better Dads and Moms" and "How to Raise Our Kids to be Godly and Good." Of course, Jesus teaches us to put family first, or does he? How did Jesus warn us about the idolatry of family?

What do we do when we lose one of our loved ones in death- we visit the grave and weep or we plow on with life and weep far away from the grave. There is one time in human history when loved ones arrived at the grave to cry and they ended up bursting with joy.
 
The Romans crucified thousands during the high point of their 400 year rule, but there is one cross that will never be forgotten. It is Easter –the time when even the calendar calls us to Calvary.
 
From a religious standpoint and a political standpoint, the religious and political leaders who tried Jesus might not have believed that He was important, but time and history have proven them wrong.
 
New Testament scholars have spilled pages of ink blaming Jesus death on Romans and exonerating the 1st Century Sanhedrin. Before we blame either side, let’s take another hard look at the evidence.
 
Jesus had a lot more than ten reasons not to go the cross when He prayed in Gethsemane, yet He poured out His emotions, His hesitation in the face of death, and finally His total submission to His Father’s will. Jesus came apart in Gethsemane so that He could be strong in the Trial of Golgotha – a lesson about what real life is and how to make ...…
 
Who killed Jesus? Why did He die? Who is Jesus? Many of our personal and nationwide debates in the big scheme of things mean little.

We all know that death and taxes are inevitable, and when it comes to paying taxes out of a dry bank account, it sometimes feels like death.

Sacred space—it’s one of the most powerful forces in the world. We, as human beings, yearn to worship in that special place. Two million Moslems will soon pack out Mecca’s Grand Mosquein to fulfill the Hajj, and Israelis and Palestinian prove every day that the struggle to control sacred space still brings blood in the 21st Century. Does that s ...…
 
I was talking to the director of a mentoring program in our local high school the other day and this is what struck me. "Teens simply don't respect authority. Their idea is that you don't have to respect anyone unless they first earn this respect. The basic idea is that you can treat someone like dirt until they prove that they deserve your att ...…

What does an almost forgotten, old fashioned wor ...…
 
The battle rages—traditional marriage between a man and a woman or the rights of individuals to define marriage according to their desires. Appeals are made to history, to religion, to present day stories of broken hearts and forbidden dreams. In the midst of the discussion there is one person who is often left out of the discussion—God! It's t ...…
 
Ever experienced anger boiling up from deep in your soul? The root of our anger is that we believe that if we were in control, if we were God, then things wouldn’t be so messed up. We could make things right. Jonah believed that God should destroy Nineveh immediately, and he resented God's mercy in forgiving those who repented. Chapter four rev ...…
 
The U.S. battle against ISIS proves that the War against Terror is hardly over. For centuries nations have been forced to form alliances to try and battle bloody, ruthless violence. The Assyrian Empire used terrorism to gather more and more territory, but in Jonah we learned that the Lord gave even these thugs time to repent. In Jonah's day the ...…

I just heard the other day that another prophecy guru has put together the feasts of Israel and some other info from the Old Testament and they know the date and time Jesus will return.

Nobody wants to go to a medical doctor who makes up stories about your health just to make you feel good. If you want the truth from you doctor, why don't you demand the same from your minister? As we begin our study of the fifth book of the New Testament a first century medical doctor begins his history of the church with a strong claim—there ...…
 
One-a-day multiple vitamins--the idea is that you can pop one of these pills once a day down the hatch and you can be on the way to health and vitality. The problem with many followers of Christ is that they use this same approach in their faith, only this time it is not once a day, but once a week, Sunday, spirituality. But authentic Christian ...…
 
Death is the absolute end so it is the cessation of all feeling. As birth took place out of non-existence, so death leads us back to non-existence. Therefore everything needs to be focused on this life. One must "seize the day." This is a dominant secular viewpoint but the truth is that this was the philosophy of Epicurus who lived more than th ...…
 
Forty years of experiments, billions of dollars, and 6000 physicists working feverishly to discern the data finally exposed the elusive "God Particle."

They picked up stones. Will we join with the mob or with the Prophet Stephen? ...Don’t jump to a conclusion. Listen. You might discover that the mob looks a l ...…
