Remember back in school when you had a substitute teacher? They weren't familiar with you or where you were at in the curriculum, so they usually were more of a babysitter than a teacher (at least that was the case growing up in the 70's).
Sometimes people say Jesus was our substitute for us, that He suffered and died on the cross for guilty sinners. 1 Peter 2:24 states, "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live to righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed." Jesus, who never sinned (1 Peter 2:22
), bore our sins for us. He suffered on the cross for guilty sinners. He never sinned, yet he carried our sins upon Himself.
That is truly amazing if you think of it. We are all sinners. We have all lied, lusted in our hearts at one ...>> full

I am a part of Born of Him Ministries. Someone recently emailed us about using million dollar bill Gospel tracts and they accused us of trying to deceive people. Here's a link to a response at Born of Him Ministries. What do you think? Is it wrong to use million dollar bill Gospel tracts? Do you think we are trying to deceive people?
Why Do You Deceive People with Million Dollar Bill Tracts?

God is love (1 John 4:8
). God is loving (Ephesians 2:4
). John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." This is an amazing Bible verse. God loves us (the world) so much, that He gave, in other words He sacrificed His one and only Son for us so that we might have eternal life. This is a wonderful Bible verse.
John 3:17 is also a great verse, "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." God sent Jesus to earth 2,000 years ago and He lived a perfect and sinless life. Then Jesus suffered horribly at the hands of the Romans and died on the cross. He rose from the grave on the third day. Jesus did ...>> full

Tim Tebow seems very genuine about his faith. I believe when he's "tebowing," that he is sincerely praying and/or praising our one true God. I don't believe it is an act or a show of any kind. I think Tebow is really worshiping God when he kneels down.
People either jump on the Tebow bandwagon or they hate on him, they make fun of him and his faith. People mockingly tebowed at the Super Bowl several times over the three days that 110 of us around the country were at the Super Bowl witnessing with Super Bowl Outreach
. One of the guys on our team brought a cross with him. People were constantly stopping in front of the cross, kneeling down, smiling and laughing while their friends took pictures of them.
These people were not worshiping the Creator of the universe. They were not showing God respect. They were mocking, scoffing and ...>> full

There were close to 110 evangelists from around the United States that met in Indianapolis during Super Bowl weekend to witness a couple of days prior to and the day of the Super Bowl. We were part of the Super Bowl Outreach by Bill Adams. This was the 11th year for SBO.
We had to get up around 6:15 AM each morning (and 5:15 AM on Super Bowl Sunday), we prayed together for an hour, ate breakfast and then we were blessed with listening to two preachers each morning. Around 10:30 AM we drove downtown the two days prior to the Super Bowl and to the stadium on Super Bowl Sunday. We typically came back to the camp we were staying at around 9 or 9:30 pm. We'd shower, call (or text) loved ones, read our Bibles, go to bed and then get back up the next morning and start over ...>> full
