I can’t stress this enough: if you are tempted to believe that all you need is God, then read this article.  There is a conflation of the doctrine of God alone saves us with God is all we need in life.  Scott Hubbard has written a great refutation to this thought-process.

You Need More Than God Alone

H. B. Charles, Jr. wrote this short blog that is so good and so true based on the last part of Mark 1, in which the leper comes to Jesus asking to be healed.  “The priority of this passage it what it teaches us about Jesus, but there is a lesson about prayer in the actions and words of the leper. The way he came to Jesus shows us how to go to God in prayer.”

We often hear that we need to live in community and do life together, but there’s more to it than just community according to Drew Hunter.  “But there’s a difference between community in general and friendship in particular. You can be in community with any number of people but not actually have any true friends.”  This one is both video and article.  Hope you enjoy.
