A Fixed Determination to Belong to God
We often speak of desiring or wishing to be the Lord's; but there is not much ground for supposing that there is any considerable degree of sincerity or strength in such desires, if they stop short of a fixed determination or resolve to be his. — Religious ...

The Character of Solomon
QUESTION: Was Solomon a type of entire sanctification? ANSWER: No. He was a very good young man, but in his middle age and down to the day of his death he was a worshiper of his many wives' idols. If there ever was a carnally minded man on the earth it must...

Lodge Membership

Turning From God
What is it to turn from God?  In the earlier stages of experience, we are apt (and perhaps it is difficult to do otherwise) to assign to God a form and locality. The term from , in its original meaning, involves the idea of place; and regarding God as havin...

God is Present in All Events
Every event which takes place in God's providential government may be said to be God to us ; — that is to say, not merely to remind us of God as coldly beholding the event at a  distance, but to bring God with it, and to manifest him in a very especial mann...

Story
Introduction
I am a retired United Methodist pastor. At various times I’ve been active in the United Methodist camping ministry, Emmaus, Chrysalis, Conference Youth Council, Lay Speakers training, and various other involvements. My ministry has been well received over the years, in the places where I have served. The things I’ve enjoyed about pastoral ministry are: (1.) The opportunities to preach the Gospel; (2.) The opportunities to teach the Bible and the Christian way of life; (3.) The privilege of being with people in important moments of joy and sorrow in their lives. You can find out more about me here: http://www.craigladams.com/
