Justice - When you get what you deserve
Mercy - When you don't get what you deserve
Grace - When you get what you don't deserve

So you are saved, now what.

     A prison keeper in the ancient Greek city of Philippi once asked two of his prisoners the most important question in life:  "What must I do to be saved?"
     The two prisoners, whose names were Paul and Silas, knew the answer:  "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31).
     The prison keeper, who is sometimes called the Philippian jailer, did believe in Jesus and he was saved.
     It is probable that he then turned to Paul and Silas and asked,  "What shall I do now?"  And they must have told him, for within a few hours he had taken several of the most important first steps that a new Christian should take.
     Perhaps you, too, have just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour and are asking,  "What shall I do now?"
     If so, take these ten simple first steps and your life will take on new excitement and purpose.

Ravi Zacharias International Ministries
     RZIM stands in the gap between the church and the world to reach the minds of men and women with the credibility of the gospel of Jesus Christ; to equip this generation of Christians with a culturally relevant apologetic, enabling them to contend for their faith; to enter arenas of resistance and reclaim ground lost to skepticism and secularism; to impact leaders in their sphere of influence on matters of character and discipline so that both heart and mind are in tune with the heart and mind of God. To this end Ravi has been called and the ministry established.

Landmines in the Pathway of the Believer
     A landmine is a hidden device, the purpose of which is to injure, maim, or destroy the person who triggers it. Just as there are landmines in the physical realm, there are also landmines in the pathway of every believer, which are exploited by Satan to destroy a person’s spiritual life.
In Touch

Love, Sex & Lasting Relationships
     How do you know if you are really "in love," or just head-over-heels in infatuation? What's the difference between love and sex? How do you train yourself, and teach your kids, to make right choices regarding sexuality? In this series from Chip Ingram, learn what the Bible has to say about this critical subject, from the very definition of love to a revelation of the empty lies that devastate marriages and inundate our culture. You'll find that God's command for sexual purity is not a prohibition of sex, but a prescription for a loving, lasting relationship.

Intelligent Design Network
     Objectivity results from the use of the scientific method without philosophic or religious assumptions in seeking answers to the question: Where do we come from?
     We believe objectivity in the institutions of science, government and the media will lead not only to good origins science, but also to constitutional neutrality in this subjective, historical science that unavoidably impacts religion. We promote the scientific evidence of intelligent design because proper consideration of that evidence is necessary to achieve not only scientific objectivity but also constitutional neutrality.

Online Program Guide
     "If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battlefield besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point." – Martin Luther, 1483-1546

FIRE’s Guide to Religious Liberty on Campus
FIRE
     College and university campuses remain one of the only forums in which the rights of students of faith are regularly curtailed. The ease with which students are denied the right to associate freely among themselves, even in matters of conscience and religion, is profoundly disturbing, as is most students' inability to expose such denials as fundamentally unjust.
