In Christ Study

Decades ago, I began noticing the repeated phrase “in Christ” in scripture. Each time, I noted the scripture reference and wrote a brief description of what it means to be in Christ based on that verse or passage.

Bible Study Basics

Too many choose not to read or study their Bible because they are frustrated from prior efforts and have become intimidated. Don't! You CAN read and understand your Bible

Women Be Silent?

Did the apostle Paul teach the church at Corinth that women need to be silent while in church and that it is shameful for their voices to be heard?

Jesus' Miracles

We have thirty-seven miracles of Jesus  (or as John calls them, "signs") recorded in the four gospels prior to the death and resurrection of Jesus. See them in parallel in this list/grid, laid out for easy study and comparison.

Divorce, Jesus & Paul

If you have suffered a divorce as a Christ-follower and feel marked by the church with a "Scarlet D," please get some peace with your situation.

Download this free study, "No Scarlet D - What Jesus and Paul really said about divorce."

Long-view Living in a Short-view World

Everything we do as Christ follows must be done with eternity in view. From that broad baseline, Damon will begin prayerful study and preparation of a presentation designed specifically to help achieve your goals for the event.
