Joseph Tkach

A friend recently sent me a picture of the 2009 New Years Eve blue moon he took on his phone camera from his home in Southern California. The moon wasn’t actually blue, of course, but it was certainly a rare sight. A blue moon, which is a second full moon in one month, is a rare occurrence in itself, occurring only once every two-and-a-half years.

But a New Year’s Eve blue moon occurs only once every 19 years. That’s why the expression “once in a blue moon” refers to something that is rare, special, uncommon or strange, but not impossible.

Jesus Christ is not merely a great role model or a great moral teacher who pointed us down the right road. He’s our all in all, our everything, the beginning and the end – the goal of our faith and our lives.

It’s interesting to take note of the admonition the apostle Peter gives in the conclusion of his second letter.

“It’s not fair!” If we had a nickel for every time we’ve heard that said – or said it ourselves – we’d probably be wealthy. Fairness is one commodity that has been in very short supply from the beginning of human history.

Jesus was certainly no stranger to unfairness. When he entered Jerusalem a week before his crucifixion, the crowds were cheering for him and waving palm fronds to honor him him in the traditional manner of an anointed king.

We can read the story in John 12:12-15:

The popular film “2012” stirred renewed interest, as well as fear, about the end of the world. Doomsday predictions always gather a following, and there seems to be no end to new ones. Since the earliest days of Christianity history records a continual parade of failed predictions.

Have you ever noticed how step-by-step programs for evangelism seem to come and go, much like the latest fads in business and management?

Programs might work for business endeavors, where advertising and manipulation of emotions is crucial to selling a product. But the gospel is not a product; it is a declaration of God’s love, and love doesn’t come by programs.

If you talk to 10 people on the street, you will likely find 10 different opinions about who God is, what God is like, how God deals with humans and what God expects of us.

Surveys have shown that even among Christians, ideas about Jesus, grace, sin, forgiveness, faith, repentance, obedience, etc., vary widely. How much more do ideas about Jesus vary among non-Christians?

Theology Affects the Way We Live

Ideas have consequences. The way we think about God affects the way we respond to him. In other words, our theology affects the way we live. Some people think theology is dull and irrelevant, but perhaps that is because they think God is dull and irrelevant; they would rather get on with their life without dragging God into the discussion.

See our article about Black History Month here.

We owe the celebration of Black History Month, and more importantly, the study of black history, to Dr. Carter G. Woodson. Born in 1875 in Buckingham County, Virginia, Woodson spent his childhood working in the Kentucky coalmines. He entered high school at the age of 20 and taught elementary school for two years after his graduation. He later studied at Berea College, the University of Chicago, and Harvard University, receiving a Ph.D. degree from Harvard in 1912.

Jesus once told a parable about two kinds of people who went to the temple to pray. One of them was a Pharisee, and the other was a tax collector. Most Christians are familiar with the parable, but without re-reading it, very few would likely remember the reason Luke gave for Jesus telling it. We find the story in Luke 18:9-14:
