Faith

  • Why do I believe? There are many reasons

    By Dave Charlton

     Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 

    - Hebrews 11:1

     

    I have often been asked Dave, why do you believe?

    Sometimes that question is asked because people want to know more of my story, in relation to my faith. What role has faith played in my life, how did I come to faith, and why did I come to faith?

    Sometimes it is asked as more of a challenge, in a why in the world would you believe that stuff sort of way.

  • Be cautious in your rush to condemn others

    By Dave Charlton

     As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.

    10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples.

  • A difficult relationship in Washington

    By Dave Charlton

    As a minister I have, over the years, spent many hours counseling with couples.

    Counseling is often difficult and frustrating work, as it involves the complicated work of unraveling many issues that are woven together in ways that seem impossible to untangle.

    When those very tangled issues are added to the deep-seated intractability that often plagues damaged relationships, the effort of the pastor/counselor to help the couple find solutions often seems next to impossible.

  • Don’t create rules where there are none

    By Dave Charlton

     5 Then some of the believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees stood up and said, “The Gentiles must be circumcised and required to keep the law of Moses.”

    6 The apostles and elders met to consider this question. 

    7 After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe.
