The Christian Journal: Do Not Judge

July 17, 2018
The Christian Journal: Do Not Judge
 
The Christian Journal solicits articles of encouragement and hope. These articles need to be uplifting and point to a God of grace, love and acceptance. Each article needs to inspire the reader to reconnect with God and his faith.
 
Articles should be 300–500 words in length. The average article is around 400 words. There is no payment for articles at this time. Each issue follows a theme. In 2018 we will be looking at Jesus’ famous “Sermon on the Mount” in Matthew 5-7.  Here Jesus clearly outlines those who are part of the Kingdom and how they act and live.
 
September theme is: Do Not Judge: Jesus warns us about being judgmental as Kingdom believers, based on Matthew 7:1-6.
Copy and Announcement Deadline: August 15
Ad Deadline: August 20
