    When I first came to Dordt as a church shopping freshman, I became excited when I found out about the Church of Christ. Its website made it sound like its theology was the closest to the nondenominational church I grew up in, so I had it in my mind that this was the church I wanted to become a regular member of. One autumn Sunday morning, a friend and I put the address on the website into my GPS and set out. I was convinced that my GPS was malfunctioning when we ended up in the parking lot of a dark building that didn’t look like a church and didn’t even look like it was open. We became more confused because there was a sign that said Christ Community Church, but there wasn’t a building that said Christ Community Church on it. This was the…

And if that “free time” is spent poorly, then one tends to develop bad habits, especially with regards to time management. The opposite is also true however, if one spends their “free time” wisely then good tendencies start to form. Professor Davis seems…

Therefore, Christian worship represents the first social reform. Divine worship prepares individuals and communities for social action.

    As residents in heaven we have the responsibility to not bend out culture to fit into the world but to model a new series of ethics that are defined by God. An old metaphor they use to explain this is the church being a light house on a hill, its job being to illuminate the way to Christ for the rest of…

    1-2: This verse begins with one of the voices of thunder calling out in a loud voice, showing that the command “comes from God’s throne.” John states he saw, signaling the opening of the seven seals of God, the seals that will judge the nations for their wrongdoing. The white horse with a bow and a crown is seen by some “to represent Christ, mainly because he is associated with white, a color used in Revelation fourteen times to represent purity.” There is not a woe connected with this…
