Are we truly more liberated today?

Does Baptism Matter?

Is baptism required for salvation? What is the truth about the practice of water baptism, and is it more than simply a “rite of passage” to become a Christian, regardless of age or understanding?

Finding Peace and Overcoming Fear in Troubled Times

Many people suffer from fear of the unknown. Whether regarding a first day of school, the first day on a new job, a coming marriage, or flying on an airplane for the first time, we all feel fear and anxiety from time to time. Now in the year 2020 there is another fear of the unknown—SARS CoV-2—better known as COVID-19.

Coronavirus, Quarantine, and Depression

What strange and interesting times we’re living in. Many may even call them scary. I recently read that over 50 percent of the earth’s population is quarantined due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although “quarantine” means different things in different nations, the ultimate result is that we are spending more time by ourselves and spending less time with and around other people. And when we are around others, “social distancing” (remaining nearly two meters/six feet away) and wearing masks can make us feel even more isolated.

Where is God in the Coronavirus Pandemic?

Editor's Note: Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, the world has seen many changes and countless people have suffered hardship and loss, both due to the virus and to the effects of nations’ efforts to combat it. As restrictions are being relaxed in various states and countries, it would be unwise to forget the spiritual lessons this experience has highlighted for us.
