Merry Christmas from Gospel-App Ministries!!! Instead of doing a Christmas podcast this year alone, we also did a Christmas video for your enjoyment. It is the Gospel App Christmas Story 2020 (with a twist of lemon-cranberry and sprigs of thyme). We wanted to look at the birth of our Lord in a creative way. Biblical, […]
YOU WILL BE SURPRISED There is a core misunderstanding among Evangelicals, Protestants and Catholics today with regard to rabbinical writings on forgiveness. In Matthew 18:21, an enthusiastic Peter asks Jesus “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” The typical explanation follows these lines. “Jewish […]
Check out this emotional song by Yebba, My Mind. “How could ya? How could you do, do this to me? No way, no way, she can’t take you away from me I sure won’t stay, but I’ll be damned if I ever leave” […]
Last year we looked at each of the Oscar nominated Best Picture Films and ranked them related to the prevalence of shame in the film.

Campaign Goal is 1000 Participants Yes, I would like to sponsor people to go through the Forgiving Path (www.forgivingpath.com). I believe that if we Christians began to actually forgive each other, it would be very noticeable. Nothing is more core to the Gospel than forgiving others.

No judgment. We want to help. Elisabetta Franzoso, in her very helpful article, Types of Damaging Fathers and How They Influence Who We […]
Help for Those Awkward Family Gatherings Holidays are less than great for those of us with “daddy-issues.” By the way, let’s not be extremist. Think of a spectrum from 0-10 where 0 is horrific and abusive daddy issues and 10 is zero daddy issues. Most likely you are somewhere in-between. The fact is that only […]
Holiday family gatherings can be great–or they can be awkward and even toxic. We want to help you. We will focus this year on those so-called “daddy-issues.” By the way, let’s not be extremist. Think of a spectrum from 0-10 where 0 is horrific and abusive daddy issues and 10 is zero daddy issues. Most likely you, or some person that you know, are somewhere in-between. The fact is that only Jesus had no daddy-issues. So. at FP we just like to take people where they are and help them move toward a healthier experience of relationships. Simple. Let’s lean into this together so that your holiday experience is better than it was last year.
