Readers of Beyond Today magazine share their thoughts in the September/October 2020 issue.

“Hope and Help for the Brokenhearted”

This is such an uplifting and timely subject, and it covered so much in just a few pages. There are so many people going through so much heartache and difficulties at this time. The overview and examples of biblical characters who went through depression are great, because it makes you realize that we are not the only ones, that great men and women of faith went through periods of much discouragement but somehow God came through every time and gave them a solution or a way out of it.

Please pass along my gratitude to the author of the “Hope and Help for the Brokenhearted” article. Suicide has occurred in our family for several generations and I really needed to read this. Thank you.

“Are You Worn Down by Weariness?”

Thanks for sharing this. I have realized how ungrateful I have been to God. He has blessed me so much, yet I worry about the things I do not have. This article has taught me how to battle weariness in a positive and godly way.

From the Internet

Thank you for this article. I recognize now that I have been dealing with weariness. I have tried to beat myself up for being lazy—which has never been a big issue for me—and could not understand why I could not just pull out of it. I plan to use your steps and may purchase Forty Days to a Joy-Filled Life. I get even more frustrated with myself knowing this is just the beginning of sorrows, and if I struggle to cope now, how will I when the birth pains [of world trouble] come closer together?

From the Internet

This was absolutely what I needed! My family has been dealing with serious struggles and I have been in over my head trying to cope. You get to the point where things are so chaotic that you don’t know where to start to get a grip. The points in this article were so helpful.

From the Internet

What a wonderfully inspiring message. We need uplifting and helpful words to help us navigate through our Christian journey. Thank you so much.

"Are You Prepared for the Next Crisis?"

Thank you for this reminder of how we are to be prepared for any calamity or disaster to come. I am studying and praying always.

From the Internet

Thanks immensely for this article. The crisis we see is almost like nothing we have seen before. This will help many see more clearly how we can encourage others and stay on course in a godly manner as in the examples set by Christ. We can become part of the solution and not part of the ongoing crisis.

Interested in joining for worship

I’m interested in attending your services. I’ve been trying to find a church where I will fit in that has the same beliefs that I have, and I have enjoyed using your online booklets to aid me in my study. I have recently been feeling the need to connect with others, and I really would love to be baptized and receive laying on of hands. I will of course in the meantime enjoy all your online services.

Reader in the U.K.

Your never-ending devotion to the Scriptures is inspiring. Where can one find a church that practices Saturday worship instead of Sunday? This can be difficult to locate.

From the Internet

We’re glad to hear you’ve been inspired by our material. We’d love to have you visit our worship services. You can find a full listing of all our congregations in the entire world—and search for one closest to you—at We hope to see you soon!


Cancel my subscription

Please cancel my subscription to Beyond Today. The editorial in the last issue opened my eyes to your views.

From the Internet

I would like to be removed from your mailing list, and any periodicals I requested be rescinded. Upon further reflection I do not agree with your doctrine. Please make this effective immediately.

From the Internet

Our mission is to preach the gospel of the Kingdom of God and to make disciples of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-19). Often people won’t see eye-to-eye with our teachings on Scripture or on world affairs—just as they disagreed with the teachings of Jesus Christ and the apostles. We are sorry to see any subscriber go, but will continue in our mission for those who find our work inspiring and eye-opening.
