Rooted In Truth (ATP)

Rooted In Truth (ATP) “My sister is dealing with an evil spirit; she feels guilty because she is sick and not able to do “her responsibilities” as a wife and mother. How do I explain to her these feelings are not hers, but suggestions that satan and his followers are putting into her mind?” Often times, as I have seen over and…

Simple Faith

Simple Faith 1 Peter 2:2 (NKJV) as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby I met a man recently at a coffee shop who was very forward about his faith. Although I didn’t start the conversation, I listened as he reached out to me about his ideas about God. I didn’t argue with him, though…

Smoking Section

Smoking Section 1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” There was a time in my former life when I was a heavy smoker. I was not a person who just smoked because I was addicted, but rather I actually loved to. This was in the time where most restaurants still had a smoking section. One of my…

Connections in the Local Church (ATP)

Connections in the Local Church (ATP) This week’s Faith Fix is actually a combination of two questions that really go hand in hand. “We are a church family, but what if you don’t connect with everyone in that family? Does it make the church less strong as a unit? Is it wrong to not support someone from church when you disagree with…

Being Spiritual (ATP)

Being Spiritual (ATP) “I was chatting with someone a couple days ago and during our conversation, this person said they are not religious, but they are spiritual. I hear this quite often, but I am unsure what it means.” Interestingly enough, the word religious is only used a couple if times in scripture and it’s always used to describe those who won’t…

For What Reason? (ATP)

For What Reason? (ATP) When you’re having a streak of “bad luck” (for lack of a better way of putting it), what is the best way to respond? You may have heard the phrase, “Everything happens for a reason.” I hate this phrase. First of all, yes, everything happens for some reason. We live in a world that is heavily manipulated by…

Am I Enough? (ATP)

Am I Enough? (ATP) “For a long time I’ve never felt like I’m doing enough, I’ve never felt like I’m spreading the word enough, using my faith enough, praying, reading and studying enough. How do we know we’re doing enough?” This is a question many Christians have had, especially Christians who are being taught the Word of God and have gained revelation…

Jumping In (ATP)

Jumping In (ATP) “It’s not that I’m not excited about what God is doing, but is it wrong not to dance in a service when many others are?” This question is referring to what we know as Holy Ghost services, where God is moving and many are experiencing joy in a tangible way, with dancing, running, laughing, shouting and the like. Depending…

Thinking Faith (ATP)

Thinking Faith (ATP) One of Pastor Jeff’s scriptures recently used in a sermon was Ephesians 3:20, and he said he has been thinking more faith lately. So my question is, how do you think faith? What would that look like? Is that kinda of like just hoping a lot? Thinking in line with faith would be the equivalent to Joshua 1:8, which…
