Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Christian Camouflage - #5456
You call it conviction, God calls it stubbornness; you call it compassion, God calls it compromise; you call it love, God calls it immorality or adultery. Isn't it time you looked in the mirror and saw the hypocrite behind the beautiful words? There's freedom, there's forgiveness and there's integrity waiting for you at the cross of Jesus Christ, where you need to bring all the sin that's been hiding behind that spirituality.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Where to Start Rebuilding - #3799
They knew where to bring the broken pieces. They brought them to Jesus. That's where the rebuilding of a life begins. In fact, let me suggest that you look for answers where they kept the rebuilding plans for those old cathedrals - beneath the cross.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Big Head, Small Heart - #5515
If God were to draw a picture of some of us church folks, He might just draw us much the same way - a big, overdeveloped head and brain, but an underdeveloped heart. Because some of us have a head full of Jesus but not much in our heart. And there's nothing funny about that picture. There's something frightening about it. Because in Romans 10:10, our word for today from the Word of God, He says, "It is with your heart that you believe and are justified."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Missing Pieces - #5531
We seem to be missing the meaning in it all; the purpose of why we're here. We wonder why there's never been enough love to fill the hole in our heart ... never any real, lasting peace inside. It's in those moments when we back off from just messing with the pieces for a moment and we stand back to look at the big picture. That's when we're most likely to discover what really matters and what really doesn't.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - One of Us - #5571
When God was one of us, He forgave a sinful woman everyone else was ready to stone. He's ready to forgive you. He loved the children. Even His own disciples thought they were unimportant. He still loves those that others think are unimportant - maybe like you. When God was one of us, He walked right past the cheering crowds to seek out one hurting person in need just as He is seeking you today.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Hall of Fame/Hall of Shame - #8005
This “anything to win” thing affects business and how we handle our relationships—anything to win. And when you make unholy compromises to have a life that matters, the cost is just too high. You don’t win, you lose. You lose respect for the man or woman in the mirror, and it’s ugly to lose the trust of other people and the respect of other people.

This introduction to the book of Mark reports on the title, author, outline, and date of writing. Since Mark’s Gospel is traditionally associated with Rome, it may have been occasioned by the persecutions of the Roman church in the period c. a.d. 64–67. The famous fire of Rome in 64—probably set by Nero himself but blamed on Christians—resulted in widespread persecution.

Synoptic Gospels
A careful comparison of the four Gospels reveals that Matthew, Mark and Luke are noticeably similar, while John is quite different. The first three Gospels agree extensively in language, in the material they include, and in the order in which events and sayings from the life of Christ are recorded. [from the NIV Study Bible]

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Churches, Christians and Other Hang-ups - #5295
I have to be brutally honest with you about this Christian thing. A lot of people really don't like our commercials. The advertisements for Jesus are the people who claim to follow Him - like me; the churches and organizations that claim to operate in His name.

Suffering and the Hope of Healing (part 1)
Article on suffering and hope. Drawing from Jesus encounter with Peter's mother-in-law, in Mark 1, we see how Jesus came as the ultimate conquerer over suffering and death.
