You might have heard, after Romney’s chat with Billy Graham, Billy’s illustrious evangelistic organization removed Mormonism from its list of cults. I appreciate Billy’s life and ministry. But this? For a potential president? It really isn’t in my nature to pick on people but I am amazed at this one. In fact, I could easily transition into a rant, but I won’t. “What does is profit an institution if it help elect a president but …”

Here is a reminder that true contentment never comes from great circumstances. We need to be reminded of this.

Joe Thorn weighs in on the cure for backsliding. We all backslide from time to time.

The cure for a backslidden state is not “letting go and letting God,” nor is it found in our own recommitment to the Lord. The cure for our condition is the Lord Jesus himself. He is the Good Shepherd who restores the soul.
