Scriptural Warnings About the Tongue
So liable are we to offend in the use of the tongue, and so difficult is it to regulate ourselves in this respect, that we are told by the Apostle James, "If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body." In ...

QUESTION: Did God speak audibly and directly to Israel? ANSWER: He had various ways of speaking: (1) through words vibrating in the air like the human voice, only much louder (Ex. 20:22; Deut. 4:33; 5:22-27; Neh. 9:13). (2) By the urim and thummin, as in Nu...

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/
