Our online ministry is changing its name from “New Life Health Ministries” to “TEAMzao”, as of October 1st, 2016.
There are many reasons for this change, and much prayer has gone into the decision. One reason for this is because we do not wish to sound like we are some old, southern baptist organization (we love some of those organizations – but, they simply are not us).

Now for the fun part, the difficult questions. In the last post , I talked about when it was okay to judge, be judgemental, and when to speak out about our judgements. However, that leaves a lot of questions for some of us:
- Are Christians responsible for whether unbelievers hear truth or not?
- Is someone who never heard the gospel responsible for not believing in Christ?
- If someone were to get pregnant after being raped, are they responsible for the life produced?

“Spiritually hangry” is a term I coined during my third week of youth camps in Batesburg, SC. Continue reading “Spiritually Hangry”
Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour (1 John 2:18 ESV).
We created sin. We often create our own demons, antichrists, and downfalls. Just like the kingdom of heaven is not coming but is already here, so one may argue that the end times are not coming but are already upon us. We can either live in fear and create our own end, or we can choose to spread the messages of love, salvation, and hope durring these times.
Each soul is a spark thrown out into a dark world. We can choose to either light the world ablaze with fear and hatred or with hope and love. Continue reading “The Parable of The Mark and The Hellfire”
No one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name (Revelation 13:17).
Our time, effort, and funds reflect our heart condition. This is what worship truly is. What you spend your time, effort, and money on is what you worship. We choose to worship ourselves, we choose gods and idols to worship, or we choose to worship selfless love. The choice is made in the heart, but reflected through the stewardship of these things.
The following parable was written by Joshua Noel as part three of five in a parable series, called "The Mark".
In the town like any other,

So in my last post I talked about having a hope for brighter days. But what are we going to do when difficult people and situations come our way? Are we going to bow down and allow these people or situations to walk all over us and put us back in a situation that is now hopeless?
Hopefully by now you have come to the conclusion that hope and faith in God is the only way that we can get through any obstacle, but here’s my question: is there a way we can put God and his kingdom into action? What I mean by this is that all the time I look around and I see Christians say “Well, I can’t do that because I will be mean,” or “How am I supposed to do that without offending somebody?” Well here’s the answer…

Welcome back! Or for the first time. So far, we’ve taken a look at who God created us to be and what went on with the first sin. We’re going to keep moving through the Bible, trying to get into the minds of people to try and figure out what they went through and how it relates to us. I’m not stopping at every person we come across. So if you were hoping to see Cain and Abel or Noah this time we’re just not going there right now. We may come back at some point, but for now we’re moving forward.
