Articles of 2012

With thousands of pages on CBN.com devoted to spiritual enrichment, you viewed these articles the most in 2012:

The Real Meaning Of Christmas
It's that time of year again. December has come and with it all the joys of Christmas. But what is the real meaning of Christmas? Is it the gifts under the tree, the lights in the windows, the cards in the mail, turkey dinners with family and friends, snow in the yard, stockings hanging in the living room, and shouts of "Merry Christmas" to those who pass us in the streets? Is this really Christmas? Continue reading ...

The Power of Prayer and Fasting
The combination of fasting and praying is not a fad or a novelty approach to spiritual discipline. Fasting and praying are not part of a human-engineered method or plan. They are not the means to manipulate a situation or to create a circumstance. Fasting and praying are Bible-based disciplines that are appropriate for all believers of all ages throughout all centuries in all parts of the world. Continue reading ...

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?
The question is usually "Why do [you God, let…] bad things happen to people?" It's an accusation we bring to God, sometimes because we don't understand, but most usually when we are experiencing an acute pain in our life. Continue reading ...

Should Christians Celebrate Halloween?
As Christians you and I are placed in this world to be a light in a world of darkness. There is no lasting benefit to ignore a holiday that exists around us, but it also does harm to celebrate Halloween as it has originated and grown over the centuries. Continue reading ...

Can I Be Healed?
The Bible indicates that God is willing to heal persons who seek Him for healing, but that God is not obliged to heal. Why God will heal some persons and not others is often a mystery, but, we are confident that His will is accomplished either way. I know that God does heal and I am sure that you can also be healed! Continue reading ...

Third Time Isn't the Charm: The Mayans Are Wrong
The Mayans predicted that the world would come to an end of December 21, 2012, so the media are scrambling to find someone who can tell them if this is accurate or not. In situations like this, I am the go-to guy, so let's go to it. Continue reading ...

Keys to Powerful Living: Praise
Often it's easier to praise a sunset than the Creator of the sunset. In that same way, the difficulties of life often cloud our vision and keep us from praising God. What can we do to restore a heart-attitude of praise? Continue reading ...

Interpreting Common Symbols in Spiritual Dreams
I strongly discourage the use of standard dream dictionaries to arrive at the meaning of symbols found in dreams we receive from the Lord. Common objects, colors, animals, locations, or anything else for that matter can mean different things to people based on their associations and impressions of those things which are unique to each individual. Instead, I advise that each individual concentrate on developing their own individual "dream vocabulary" by discerning the meaning of reoccurring symbols in dreams. I have discovered a relatively small number of symbols which are common within the Body of Christ. Continue reading ...

What Obligations Do Marriage Partners Have to Each Other?
The apostle Paul, writing to the church at Ephesus, laid down some very good guidelines for husbands and wives. To the men he said, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it" (Ephesians 5:25). To the women he said, "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord" (Ephesians 5:22). That kind of relationship brings about a lack of tension in marriage. Continue reading ...

How Do I Recognize A Cult?
Practically every cult has certain characteristics that can tell the careful observer that something is wrong. For instance, what does a group think about Jesus? Jesus Christ is God, Lord of all, the only source of salvation. Invariably, a cult will put something else on an equal footing with Christ. It will have a ritual that is equal to Christ, or it will have a doctrine equal to Christ, or it will have a leader who is equal to Christ. In other words, even if it acknowledges Christ as Savior, it will say that you need something else before you can get into heaven. Cults teach that salvation comes through Christ, plus their little unique way. Continue reading ...
