Victory In Jesus Or Loss With The Devil? (ATP)

Victory In Jesus Or Loss With The Devil? (ATP) “During a recent message, Pastor Jeff mentioned, “Sometimes it’s your flesh coming against you & not the devil.” Well how can we distinguish which one is coming against us?” These are the kinds of questions “Faith Fix: Ask the Pastor” is meant for! We should, as we study or listen to sermons, have…

Time For Change

Time For Change Change is inevitable. Regardless of plans, change will come. Sometimes we embrace it, sometimes not so much. I’m so glad that God saw fit for us to live in an area with such dramatic seasonal change. In western NY and Pennsylvania, we see change to the extreme and it teaches us an important lesson that many others just don’t…

Smack Dab Where I Need To Be (ATP)

Smack Dab Where I Need To Be (ATP) My question is on Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, acceptable and perfect will of God.” I’ve heard this verse as God’s will can be divided into 3 separate parts: 1. Good 2. Acceptable…

Atheist Epiphany (ATP)

Atheist Epiphany (ATP) “Pastor Renee, at what point when you were an atheist did the Holy Spirit come upon you and “make” you start turning toward God?” I was raised in an atheist home. My parents were wonderful, hardworking, and loving people but they didn’t believe in God and never took us to church. We never had a Bible, a prayer, or…

What Is Truth Anyway? (ATP)

What Is Truth Anyway? (ATP) I found Proverbs 18:9 in the Amplified version while reading a book and was startled to discover that not taking good care of yourself is referred to as the “brother of suicide” in this verse, but when I read it in the NKJV this line of Scripture is not there. Is this verse really referring to how…

Secret, Secret, I’ve Got A Secret (ATP)

Secret, Secret, I’ve Got A Secret (ATP) “In the Bible when Jesus performed miracles he often told people not to tell anyone. What can we learn about this and how can we apply it to our lives as Christians and what we do?” This is one of those real curiosity questions, often called the “Messianic secret” that doesn’t have many great answers,…

Nerves In The Way (ATP)

Nerves In The Way (ATP) “Sometimes when I go up to have hands laid on me I get nervous and feel like it gets in the way of me fully receiving. Can this happen?” There are many reasons this could be, so let’s do a short diagnostic to see if we can get to the bottom of this. The Word tells us…

Answers In Motherhood (ATP)

“What does the Bible say about mothers and their roles? It appears that our culture seems to look down upon mothers a lot.  They’re judged very harshly even by one another and are often seen as less than their husbands, especially if they don’t work and stay home to take care of the kids.” Before I answer this question, I think it’s…

Onward Christian Soldiers! (ATP)

Onward Christian Soldiers! (ATP) As Christians can we bibicaly ask for a “religious exemption” from getting the vaccine? This is an interesting question, one that might cause some debate.  As asked however, I am going to attempt to answer it from the Bible. The debate over the vaccine is raging in our country, no less so in the church amongst Christians. Should…

I Saw Jesus In My Cheerios (ATP)

I Saw Jesus In My Cheerios (ATP) We recently talked about how visions from God are very very very very very very very rare. What is a vision from God? Are visions different than images and things we see when we pray in the spirit? We also hear a lot about visions and visitations in our circle.  2 Peter 1:19 (NASB) So we…
