Chuck Swindoll: Seasoned to Taste

Born in El Campo, Texas, Swindoll (age 75) was raised in what he describes as a “God-fearing” household. After high school, he married his wife, Cynthia, and pursued mechanical engineering via military service. Following a tour of duty in the United States Marines, he was stationed on the Japanese island of Okinawa. His experiences there steered his life in a completely different direction.

Change From Within

Since being forced to flee Sierra Leone in 1997 during its violent civil war, Dr. John Jusu—now a professor, ordained minister and tireless advocate for those in need— has come a long way. Born in 1963 in Bumpe, a village in Sierra Leone, West Africa, Jusu has witnessed terrible suffering, including the atrocities committed by war rebels, whose trademark was to hack off victims’ hands and feet. Jusu is passionate about curing the ills that still plague diamond-rich Sierra Leone and Africa. He is fighting against poverty, illiteracy, corruption and hiv/aids. He believes creating a proactive church is one way to bring a cure.

Fallen Angels: Cyril of Jerusalem on enduring Faith

How can people know the gospel if they don’t have access to a Bible, can’t read a Bible, or don’t have one translated into their own language? Cyril of Jerusalem tackled this problem by teaching his students a creed: condensed, essential principles of faith that were easy to remember. The creed he taught them was likely the Apostle’s Creed. When someone attacked their faith, or taught them something different, they could cling to the teachings of the creed. When addressing people about to be baptized, Cyril echoes Paul (Gal 1:8–9): When what you hear does not match up with the basics of your faith, run away.

Smack Down: Peter vs. Paul

“I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.” (Gal 2:11 ESV) Harsh words coming from a pastor—even harsher considering he was addressing another pastor. The confrontation in Antioch between Paul and Peter over whether or not Jews should eat with non-Jews is puzzling. Why was Paul so angry with Peter, and why is he recounting this story to the Galatians?
