Please does every dream that we have come from God?

Dreams from God are only for very special events. For example the dreams in Genesis were only given to the patriarchs, or fathers, of Israel. God had a special relationship with these men because He had promised Abraham that through him and his seed (children) all the families of the earth would be blessed. See [...]

Is the success of a ministry measured by the amount sacrificed or by the great results?

When we consecrate our lives to serve God, we give 100% of everything we have and are.

Some Christian evangelists and Christian priests amass a lot of property in India. Does it not contradict the Biblical precept that one has to give up everything to follow Christ?

A rich young man asked Jesus how he could have eternal life. Jesus responded, “‘If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give [...]

I know the first fruits are holy. Why then if I was being faithful with my tithe, did I backslide and lose my job?

Many preachers tell their congregations that if they tithe (give 10%), they will be blessed by God.

I'm 62. I was saved in my twenties. Made a lot of mistakes and lived in and out of my Christian faith for many years. Now I'm anxious about completing my destiny that God had laid out for me. I've never been closer to Jesus than I am right now. God is the author and finisher of my faith. Will he finish what he started in me in this life or in heaven?

In the parable of the talents (Matthew 25, verses 14-30), why are two servants praised?
