Pastor Jerry L. Robinson • Divorce/Remarriage
"An Exploration of the Spiritual Dimensions of African-American men who did not initiate a Divorce" described the finality of a relationship that often times can be destructive or constructive based on the divorce circumstances. The problem in this study investigated the spiritual dimensions of the non-initiator of divorce and examined some coping skills that were rooted in spirituality. At the same time, the nature and purpose of this study reviewed the dynamics of divorce from a general view as well as specific viewpoints, which entails the stories of 14 African-American men between the ages of 25-65 who did not initiate a divorce. As a result, a qualitative approach explored the meaning and understanding that participants ascribed to their experiences of divorce and the spiritual journey."
Faith
"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, faith is the evidence of things not seen." Want to see it come to past? Then your faith determines what manifests itself in the natural. Your faith is the evidence!

Faith is not a 100 yard dash...it's a marathon. Sometimes when we hear the testimonies of others, we tend to think, "wow, look how quickly that happened!" This is the case when we hear of deliverance from financial challenges or even sickness or disease (which neither are of God). The bible clearly states, cast your bread upon the water, and in many days it shall return"(Eccl. 11:1). So, remember just because we don't see the manifestation "right away", doesn't mean that it is not "on the way".

What methods do you use to be productive in your relationships? Do you depend on talk shows to help you with the day in and day out challenges of your encounters? Perhaps you take surveys to help you determine if you are on track? If you are ready to get out of the do-loop...

Believers are told, if you walk a certain way based on the principles of God, you will act a certain way in the natural. It is through God's grace and mercy that we are able to be the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21,for he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Did you know that without forgiveness you can't experience God's best? The Bible says in Jeremiah that, "your sins have kept the blessings of God from you." This is serious business! Why should you forgive? Because it's not a suggestion, but a direct order

"Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world" is what John advises(1 John 4:1). Today we have so many things warring after our souls. Don't let the grandiose and glamour get you caught up. In the words of the late Johnny Cochran, "if it don't fit, you must acquit." In other words, if it doesn't line up with the Word of God kick it to the curb!
Prayer
The fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much is what the Bible teaches us...so why are so many believers so entangled with the snare of the enemy?...

Why? Because the only way to win against satan's attack of our soul (mind) is through constantly communicating with God. We defeat the strongholds and have the strength to cast down every imagination that exalts itself against the knowledge of God...when we recognize the voice of God and pray without ceasing...

Today, there are so many things in the world that strives to buffer the core of our belief in Christ. Moreover, these principalities are viciously attacking the next generation.

More and more today, left is said to be right, and right is the "new" left.

It's time for a Youth Faith Action Plan...

Isn't it absolutely amazing how much the fades change? What is sad about this is that some of us in the Body of Christ have jumped on the bandwagon of changing fades in our beliefs. One year we are Jesus freaks, the next, well, were stating that, "there are many roads that lead to God." This is not true, absolutely not true. Jesus said that, I am the way, I am the truth, and I am life, no man goes to the Father except by me." Read the following article to see if you are following the mandates of the bible or have you become a "New School Believer".
