What’s your sign, man? Horoscopes used to play an important role in my relationships–especially with women.. This was during my prodigal son romp through my recently divorced mid-life wilderness. When I became interested in a woman, the first place I went was Linda Goodman’s book Sun Signs to see if the woman and I would be horoscopicly […]
Savior of the world. Lamb of God. Prince of Peace. The Word. The way, the truth and the life. That’s who the Bible says He is. That’s what we call Jesus. He’s all those things. What still gives some folks trouble is when Jesus calls himself God! When Phillip asked Jesus to show them the […]
Were we born with a sinful nature or did we just learn to be sinful after we were born?
How would you like your eggs today, over-easy, scrambled, fried, sunny-side up, soft-boiled, hard-boiled, poached, or shirred?? How about your steak; rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, or well done?? Choice of potatoes? This sounds like questions for a meal in a restaurant right? Can you relate the above questions to today’s Church?
A dear friend of mine was engaged in a discussion of spiritual stuff with a Methodist friend of his. A question arose in the conversation that stirred some question about the authority over the matter. My friend said, “This guy I was talking with said, ‘Hmmm, I’m going to go check that out to see what our […]
What do we do when we really need to hear from God and don’t right away?
What if we no longer had God’s Word to read or rely on?
Do we care more about lunch or listening to the pastor?
You can’t live a “Christian” life today. ID in ChristIt’s a label, not a lifestyle. Pastors use it, evangelists use it, ministries use it, missionaries use it, Bible teachers use it, lay people use it, Chreasters use it.
None of the material I write for this blog is copyrighted. It all belongs to God.
I want to get as much of God as I can.
Thirty years ago legalizing same-sex marriage was considered inconceivable.
Here are two interesting comments I received last week about being a Christian nation.
How can the church adjust to this new normal in our society?
God will never leave you or forsake you.
At what point do we claim Scripture?
Leftovers in our spiritual life can turn toxic and make us sick.
we consider all life to be sacred and inviolable
For every product science and Madison Avenue say is good, a naysayer or naysayer group says it’s bad.
We sometimes hear garbage people spout as doctrine and biblical truth.
The Bible teaches us that our life in Jesus is peace.
Sadly, many folks reading the Internet take what they see and read as truth.
There they were. At the water’s edge on the Red Sea. Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them from the rear. Moses lifted his staff and the walls of water parted, leaving them a path to cross the Red Sea on dry ground.
I don’t condemn any homosexual just as I don’t condemn any adulterer, but I do want to warn against the destructiveness of participating in this lifestyle, both to individuals and societies. It’s not the Creator’s plan for anybody!
What was your first thought when you read “Sex”?sex sign
Was it intimacy with your spouse? Probably not.
Was it a soap opera? A “reality” show? A lingerie ad? Maybe you thought of a racy TV scene. Some sweaty hunks in spandex gyrating on an exercise video?
Jesus used similes to teach his disciples and his followers about heaven.
Dr. Phil McGraw, a popular TV therapist, lists 16 ways for winning in the real world in his absurdly, and worldly popular book he calls, “Life Code”.
Summer’s over. Sabbatical’s over.
Let’s rock and roll with new posts.
After He has purified us completely, then filled us with His Holy Spirit, He seals us to prevent anything or anyone from contaminating us.
Different camps of thinking easily form into what become exclusive groups (exclusive to certain thinking and practices) especially where leadership is top down and where the leaders impart and control the belief system.
Jesus loves homosexuals.
Jesus loves adulterers. He loves abortionists, atheists, embezzlers, thieves, philanderers. Jesus loves convicted murderers. For God So Loved The World. John 3:16.
We’ve got a great week of God’s Truth posts lined up next week on a critically important topic in God’s Word.
Are we surprised when we discover a published gay Bible? Editors justify modifying the “King” James version because the king was, according to them, gay. There is no credible evidence in existence to confirm his sexual experience.
When the FBI teaches new agents how to recognize counterfeit money, they teach them everything there is to know about real money. Because the agents know so much about what real money looks like, they learn to recognize counterfeit money at a glance.
Anyone can call themselves a Christian today and no one can tell me what that means.
I talked about God taking us through the wilderness to empty us and fill us with His Word, so we can be equipped to walk in faith until Jesus returns.
We close out 2012 with our attention on the fiscal cliff. I don’t understand all the dynamics of this, but I do have the image in mind of a cliff and the potential of going over it. I don’t know if Congress will do anything to avoid it. It seems to me like sensible people would be able to work out what would be best for the American people. I am certainly praying for that.
Stock up on your Twinkies and Ding Dongs. The spongy king of the snake cake genre is history. They stopped production of the iconic sugary treat Friday, much to my dismay, I might add.
During my sabbatical from blogging I started in May I asked God to refresh my spirit, replenish me with fresh ideas for devotionals, new references and new ways to blog about His Gospel. To show me what He wanted me to know about Him, and about myself. He answered my prayer in ways I didn’t expect. He did, as the Bible says do more than I could think or imagine.
Self help is an oxymoron. A popular quote from folks who don’t know any better says, “God helps those who help themselves.” No He doesn’t. God helps those who come to the end of self and realize they can’t help themselves and only God can. Even in recovery groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Alanon, and ACOA […]
Acceptance is a big deal for lots of folks. We want to be accepted by our co-workers, by our managers, by our friends, our spouses, our children.
Sometimes jumping off the deep end is the only way we learn how to trust.
When we prepare for a family vacation, getting ready becomes a major project. Then once we drive off we spend part of the trip asking ourselves, “Did we forget anything?” That uneasiness haunts us most of the trip. Often it’s not until we arrive at our vacation destination and unpack that we discover we left something behind. That question, “Are we ready?” is an important one to ask when we face challenges or opportunities in our calling and our walk with Christ.
A website is selling a stick on button that promises solutions to all of life’s problems and complete serenity. All they want is $89 bucks. Why should I pay them a dime when I can get everything they offer and more in God’s Word and prayer for free?
