Sept./Oct. 2010: I collaborated with the creative team of Cornerstone Church in Livermore, CA to do a 16’ x 16’ watercolor painting consisting of five 5’ x 6’ panels. I completed a panel per week, so that the image, entitled “The Prodigal Son” and based on a painting by 17th century Spanish painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo, came together at the end of the five-week series given by Pastor Matt VanCleave entitled “Renewing Your Soul”.

Maury Davis, pastor of Cornerstone Church in Nashville suggests that all Christians—whether living in a glass house or are following John 8:7, need to start emptying the stones from their pockets.
Women who shout God’s name during sex should be prosecuted, a San Antonio pastor claims. Dr John Hagee, the founder and senior pastor of the Cornerstone Church, said that ‘there is no greater sin in terms of wrongly using God’s name than women who use it during sex’.

we believe we know the answer to existence on earth (love God, love people (&belief in Jesus as an atonement- in a nutshell). We have a beautiful gift and our identity is in Christ. But we sometimes act like the bratty kid on Christmas morning.
I loved hearing this sermon. It’s a little over 13 minutes and worth it. Also, something I learned in Mozambique is that it’s very necessary to ask yourself this question: what does love look like?
In Nighswonger’s words:
Today is the day to be blown away by the love of God.
Just ask Him.

Rececntly, Canton Junction alerted us to how Cornerstone church was helping to care for the victims of the devastating floods in Texas. Their twitter post just said, “Hey friends this is an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Please join us Canton Junction in helping #TexasFlood Victims…” Their church, Cornerstone in San Antonio, is assisting victims by collecting donations and…
Only three weeks after launch, Pastor John Hagee’s explosive new book, The Three Heavens: Angels, Demons and What Lies Ahead, topped Nielsen BookScan’s nationwide sales tracking for non-fiction religion trade paperbacks.
Today was my first time going to Cornerstone Church. I was a bit nervous about going, because of the size, and everything everyone had told me about it. I was afraid that it wouldn’t be as good as what I expected. The fact is, I was just scared of change. Scared of being uncomfortable. When change comes, the feeling of being uncomfortable is inevitable. The thing is, I didn’t really feel uncomfortable (although it was kind of awkward trying to find people to sit with, but that’s the least of my worries). Although, there was PLENTY of people there, I didn’t feel overwhelmed or anything. Worship was wonderful (and was refreshing to see a familiar face leading), and the announcements were done as an awesome skit! I also enjoyed the pastor’s speaking. He spoke about Gideon in the book of Judges. I honestly knew nothing about the story of Gideon. I learned that he was a weak little man, who God chose to use. We are all weak and foolish, and God chooses to use us?! How cool is that?! It’s so wonderful to know that God can use me!
That the cornerstone church in Fresno was such a huge supported in stopping same-sex civil rights in California in 2008 with all their resources and money… hmmm MAYBE you should not have donated things you did not have. They have not paid loans for 5 years and owe 5.5 MILLION dollars.
Jim Franklin leader says of the issue ~
“It’s obvious when you’re in these types of financial situations, but my goodness when you see companies like Gottschalks and the major banks in town. Again we shouldn’t think we’re immune to it.”
Hey Jim… Guess what Businesses go bankrupt sometimes because they took a chance, the business failed, the need was not what was expected or many other potential factors. But a Church is not a business!!! Nor should it be, it is a ministry of the people to help those in need and help your community.
You should take care of those in your pews with needs, before you attack the civil rights of others and demean their lives…
Why:I went to CornerStone Church sat by Holly,Tanner,Jared, we laughed ‘cause the pastor talked about SEX & “the Talk” with your kids. I was giggling “cause an old guy saying SEX was funny. After church I talked to my favorite teacher Mr.Willams & his Wife (they make me love school) I Could not explain how I felt after talking to them. They make me actually want to do something HUGE in life. They make me feel as I can do everything I want. After having an inspirational talk with them, I called Julie to see if her brothers could come over & swim. They could (: I was happy. They got their! we swam for a while then order pizza & Chinese watched Never Back Down! (Great movie) After that went swimming again! Played pool Got hosed played GTA. & had a GREAT Summer night (:
