Ministering to the Divorced

By Tom Jones. Silence is not support. It is wrong to assume that the divorced person would rather not talk about it or that if you brought up the subject you would only be making things worse. Divorced people already feel like lepers because friends no longer want to talk to them. If you will not talk, you increase the silence surrounding the divorced and drive them more deeply into a sense of isolation.

Especially when you realize that the devil has had this entire tribe in his clutches for hundreds of years.

The PCA’s Campus Outreach

Eyeglasses and a College Education: The Significance of a Christian World View

By Dr. Donovan Graham. Living by the wrong world view is the same as putting on the wrong eyeglasses; it can lead to disaster. Faculty members who teach students at the college level are either God’s agents seeking to grind lenses that will enable students to see the world truthfully, or they are agents of the enemy seeking to grind lenses that will lead to distortion.
