The best Christian source for doctrine and practice in contemporary and relevant times.

My own experience has been greatly enhanced for the last 25 years…most of all CRI has made me fall in love with Jesus! -Alessandro S. on a Facebook recommendation.

God uses the devil and the evil angels. They, of course, desire to ruin everything; but God blocks them, unless a well-earned scourging is in order. God allows pestilence, war, or some other plague to come, that we may humble ourselves before Him, fear Him, hold to Him, and call upon Him. When God has accomplished these purposes through the scourge, then the good angels come again to perform their office. They bid the devil stop the pestilence, war, and famine. So the devil must serve us with the very thing with which he plans to injure us; for God is such a great Master that He is able to turn even the wickedness of the devil into good
