Verse of the Month

Philippians 4:6-7:

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

How Star Trek Helped Me Understand God

The death of Leonard Nimoy brought it all back: "Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship boldly go where no-one has gone before."

These lines from the original Star Trek television series whose 79 episodes went off the air in 1969 are a pop culture staple of course. Resurrected in UHF reruns in the 1970s, Star Trek now lives on in almost perpetual re-syndication. The 1979 Star Trek: The Motion Picture spawned nine movie sequels and well-known televised adaptations.

Never a died-in-the-wool “trekkie” I was intrigued by Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989). Though the interactions of Spock, Kirk and McCoy had been playing lightly with our spiritual sensibilities for decades, this episode directly introduced the subject of God.

Hollywood Prayer Network

The recent 87th Academy Awards generated the usual stream of publicity except for the fact that scores of Christians connected to the Hollywood Prayer Network spent the evening praying for each artist and technician as they appeared on camera.

This kind of quiet activism is typical of this evangelical-oriented group which represents the thousands of Christians who work in Hollywood as actors, producers, writers, cameramen, accountants, carpenters, painters, etc.

They are living proof that there's more going on than often meets the electronic eye.

Do You Have the Armor of God?

There seems little doubt – a new power has arrived in the world! With 1 in 9 people connected on Facebook and social media a new “in” phrase, the world has changed greatly in a mere decade.

Just think: One tweet by ISIS sent CNN and other networks scrambling to check out the news of the lovely young Kayla Mueller being killed in Syria by the arch-terrorists. ISIS tweets and CNN responds. That is power.

Christians know this: All power has potential for good or ill. The spirit being called the Prince of the Power of the Air (Ephesians 2:1-4) loves to send his fiery darts far and wide, using people who don’t know the real source.
