    Trading: Fool’s Gold?

Trading: Fool’s Gold?

I grew up in Michigan, got educated on the East coast, wrote books on the West coast. I have traded in the financial markets in Chicago, done missionary work in Italy and have worked as a professional magician, director of international expansion for a restaurant brand based in Dallas and have even served as the director of counseling for a mega-church. Yet, at the core of what I love and where I have seen the most success in my life has been centered around trading.

And as a trader, I have been completely deceived. I have fallen for one of the greater deceptions that this world offers. The Bible says that wealth can be deceitful and will choke out the word of God from our lives (Mark 4:19) if we are not careful. It is immutably true. It does and it has deceived me into thinking that life is about an abundance of possessions. It really is not (Luke 12:15). Life is about knowing and enjoying Jesus (John 10:10).

We make trades every day with our time, money and resources. Yet, how many of us really know how to trade? And how many of our trades really yield a profit in light of eternity? In Isaiah 48:17, this is what the Lord says, “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you how to profit, Who leads you in the way you should go.”

The Bible tells us that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable” (2 Timothy 3:16). It is here that we will find treasures everlasting ascribed by the Creator of all things for whom we exist (Revelation 4:11). It is here that we will learn how to be profitable traders.

You have a problem.

How’s that for a conversation starter? Would you like to slap me in the face now or later? Or would it be best to dump the drink in your hand over my head? Either way, before you slap me or pour that drink over my head, please allow me to explain.

I may not ever meet you but one thing I can know about you is that you’ve got a problem. Yes, you’ve got a very big problem. Guess what? I also have this problem. It is a very big problem. Not only do you and I have this problem but everyone who is a born again believer of Jesus Christ shares this problem.

Let me be clear in articulating this, you are the problem. As Pogo stated, “we have met the enemy and it is us.” You may say, “Me? The problem?” Yep, the problem is you. In other words, it is actually your flesh that is the problem. When you get saved, your spirit is born again and will live forever; however, your flesh is going back to dust for in dust it was created. Before you were saved, the Bible says that you were a slave to sin. When you became born again, you became a slave to righteousness. This is going to need some explaining.

The Bible states, “Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of […]

To Whom Shall We Go?

by Todd A. Sinelli

“To whom shall we go?”

The Apostle Peter asked this question rhetorically almost 2000 years ago. Yet, this question is still being asked frequently, sincerely, and desperately by men and women who are hoping to find answers to many of life’s riddling questions.

“To whom shall we go?”

Where and to whom shall we go for answers? Who can help us in times of despair? How can we help those who have been sexually abused? What do you say to a suicidal person? What should your response be to losing a child, financial misfortune, or an adulterous wife?

“To whom shall we go?”

This article will directly answer the aforementioned question and strongly encourage the regenerate Christians to follow the Scriptures and to travel upon the narrow and straight road that leads to life everlasting and to avoid the broad and open path that leads to destruction.

Myth vs. Truth

Life presents us with many choices. Cable TV now offers over 100 channels. If you would like a beverage, you can purchase a Coca Cola with a lemon twist, vanilla or cherry flavored Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Light, Caffeine free Diet Coke, and the list goes on and on. Choices can be overwhelming in many areas; however, there are more important questions to answer other than which cable show to watch or what beverage we should drink.

Where do we turn to receive answers for life’s eternal questions like: Why am I here? For what purpose was I created? What happens when I die? The bible gives us clarity of thinking and provides a “lamp to our feet and a light to our path.” Without the light of God’s Word shining into our lives, we literally will walk in […]
