    FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions About The Christian Life – Chapter 3

    Chapter 3 Which church should I join?   I live in a suburb of Chicago called Oak Park. Approximately fifty-three thousand people live here. On many street corners you can find a mas­sive church structure. At the turn of the century, when Oak Park was the first affluent suburb on the railroad west from Chicago, […]

    God’s Freedom

    Romans 9:6-18

    While studying Romans 9, I was struck by Paul’s question in verse 14: “Is God unjust?” In our hearts we already know the answer. God is not unjust. But oftentimes he seems inconsistent. The very examples Paul chooses seem to uphold that inconsistency. He chooses Isaac over Ishmael. He chooses Jacob over Esau. He loves […]

    Should We Use the Bible in the Marriage Debate?

    SHOULD WE USE THE BIBLE IN THE MARRIAGE DEBATE? by Ray Pritchard At first, the question seems unnecessary. Of course we will use the Bible in the great debate over marriage. How could Christians avoid the Bible? And why should we? Before answering that question, consider an article by Don Wycliff, the “public editor…

    WMBI Commentaries


    Monday: Safer Than a Known Way Not long ago I went to see a church member who is dying of cancer. She looked so frail but her husband said that she perked right up when she heard by voice outside her door. It’s clear to me that she is down to her last few days. […]

    How Long Should I Pray?

    HOW LONG SHOULD I PRAY? by Ray Pritchard Last Tuesday I had an hour-long interview with a radio station in Philadelphia. A listener called in with a heart-searching question. He had come to Christ from a Jewish background and has a burden to see his family saved. After years of prayer for them, and many hours of discussion,…

    Saved in the Nick of Time

    SAVED IN THE NICK OF TIME by Ray Pritchard Recently I heard about a man in his 80s who came to Christ shortly before he died. It happened like this. For nearly his entire life, the man had lived without any conscious dependence on God. He wasn’t an atheist or an agnostic and he wasn’t an evangelist for his unbelie…

    WMBI Commentaries


    Monday: The Bulldog and the Skunk A few years ago a friend told me that not all hills are worth dying on. Sometimes we fight over things that don’t really matter and end up wasting lots of time and emotional energy with very little to show for it. One of the secrets to a successful […]

    The Jesus Prayer

    THE JESUS PRAYER by Ray Pritchard Recently I read Elisabeth Elliott’s fine book, Keep a Quiet Heart. One of her chapters describes the “Jesus Prayer.” It is a prayer that arose in the Orthodox tradition over 1,000 years ago. Though the prayer appears in various wordings, its most basic form goes like this: &#…

    Calvary in the Park: Faith/Hope/Love


    Faith That Leads Us to God A friend sent me an email telling about a question asked by a coworker: “How is a Christian defined? It used to be that if you were not Jewish or Hindu or Buddhist, you were a Christian, whether Catholic or Lutheran or Episcopal or Baptist. But it seems now […]

    Happy Birthday, OPCA

    When did it all begin? Some things are blurry in my mind and others are crystal-clear. The vision to start a Christian school in Oak Park was planted in my heart the day I arrived in the village in 1989. At first no one (except my wife) took me seriously when I said that someday, somehow, it was going to happen. Looking bac…
