People everywhere are searching for something to fill a void in their lives. They are searching for something to count on that will provide an anchor in an increasingly uncertain and unpredictable world. ...

A relationship with the Divine may be the ultimate expression of anchoring."
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Bridges to Nowhere
In our age of pluralism, tolerance, and eclectic spirituality, those are pretty loaded words about Jesus. We must be saved by His Name. We have the Protestant bridge to God—with good works that are supposed to take us to God—, the Catholic bridge—with good Catholic things to do—, the Jewish bridge, the Muslim bridge, the Buddhist bridge, the Hindu Bridge, and the bridge of New Age Spirituality. Our human nature wants to believe that all those bridges end up the same place with God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - It's All For You
Do you like to be recognized and made to feel important? It’s usually an honor for our name to be mentioned in the newspaper. When our name is in something, we're suddenly a whole lot more interested. ... It's that way with what may be the most important statement in the entire Bible, certainly one of the most quoted.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The One You Can Trust
So many people's objections to Jesus are due to the way Christians have acted. Another objection is people saying that the church is only after money. ... There definitely are inconsistencies in Christianity, but the good thing is that there are not inconsistencies in Jesus. The sinfulness of humans, who might also be Christians, is not a reason to deny the Son of God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Transformed Heart
You know who you want to be and who people need for you to be, but you're not anywhere close to that person. It's difficult to close the gap between the two. ... When you can admit that, it is the first step to a new you. Behind your mask of having it together, is a man or woman addicted to selfishness, or unfaithfulness, or depression, or an out-of-control temper, or sexual appetite, or a bad habit. Maybe you have tried reforming, but it hasn't worked.
