Most Christians believe He does. They believe God makes arbitrary decisions in the affairs of men. This idea that God is in control, often referred to as the sovereignty of God, creates significant challenges for believers today. It kills intimacy with God, causes confusion, and creates a victimhood mindset in followers of Jesus.
Fortunately it’s not true. God is not controlling everything that happens today. He is not responsible for all the evil in our world.
This short read exposes the Biblical truth of the matter, explains some of the problems this false idea of God creates in the lives of believers, and empowers the reader to experience God far more intimately as His children and heirs to His Kingdom.
Chris Cree was a merchant marine officer and flew off of aircraft carriers in jets with the US Navy. After leaving the Navy he spent 12 years working on the docks in various marine cargo operations positions. In 2007 Chris turned his blogging hobby into a new career developing websites, both in his own business as a freelancer and as an employee of a rapidly growing firm. This job change provided the flexibility to eventually leave the coast where the ships were, move to the mountains and go to Bible college.
Chris and his wife Lisa founded NewCREEations Ministries in 2013 as a vehicle to answer God’s call on their lives to guide believers into their full inheritance in the Kingdom of God. They live in Scotland as missionaries, where they lead a local campus of an international Bible college.

Many believers don't know how to prosper financially in the Kingdom of God. They give, but rarely, if ever, see increase. They see where Jesus said give and it will be given back to you. But it isn't working for them in the area of their finances. They sow financial seed, but don't know how to harvest.
God's ways are higher than the world's ways. And His ways are almost exactly backwards from the world's ways too. In the world’s way of doing things, the strong dominate the weak, and the rich oppress the poor. But the Kingdom of God is different. In the Kingdom of God, the strong defend the weak, and the wealthy bless the poor. God's Kingdom is designed so that everyone can prosper. God truly does have answers to all our questions, even the tough ones about money. God's grace has made perfect provision for our every need. His Kingdom provides ways for us to prosper in every area of our lives, including financially.
It is God’s desire that you become a financial resource for His Kingdom. But you cannot give away what you don’t yet have. Therefore we must leave the world’s ways of prospering financially behind and start walking in God’s ways instead.
Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love & Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other. What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect.
A wife has one driving need?to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need?to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy. Love & Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.

The tools change. But the principles stay consistent. Specific techniques come and go. But the general strategies that work are still the same as they have always been. When it comes to building an audience online, the same overarching principles are true now that were true when I wrote my first blog post back in 2005.
This book lays out a proven strategy for your church or ministry to reach more people online through both your website and social media based on my first-hand experience working with a wide variety of clients for more than a decade. My first freelance client was a parachurch ministry. Over the years I've worked with everything from small churches up through large corporate clients and major universities. Not only do these concepts work for all of those types of organizations, but they are also exactly how we continue to reach more people with our own international ministry.
Church Websites will help you be more successful by showing you the important stuff to focus on so you don't waste a lot of time.
