Hmmmmmm!? What is your eternal perspective, meaning, does your lifestyle choices result in rewards or punishments in some life when you die? If your life was shortened by accident or infirmary, (and this can happen to anyone) are you currently at peace with what you believe happens afterwards? Most want to know what happens after … Continue reading A Perspective on Eternity
The avoidance of an atheistic position for those that don’t pursue a relationship with God is a norm today, especially with millennials and gen x’ers . It fits the “whatever, whenever, whoever” times and avoids thinking about the possibility of “His wrath”. Maybe God will let you go un-noticed, but it implies God may also … Continue reading Where Is Holiness?
“Heart colored glasses” Much thought was given my decision the Bible is inerrant (see previous blog), but I certainly don’t believe in name and claim it, either. The way this works for me is complicated, but I’ll do my best to put it into words. When I intentionally put “remembering God” and His written words … Continue reading “In My Heart” Means What?
The word blessings implies positive events happen by the will or influences of our Creator instead of a “luck of the draw”. I feel for those that consider random good things are lucky because they have to wait for the next random event to come their way. There can be a steady stream of positive … Continue reading Are Blessings Just Luck?
How can I get around this? So, how are Christians better off than non-Christians? Christian or not, we all do things we wish we hadn’t. We can harbor guilt and hopefully, have remorse for damaging words spoken or wrong actions taken. We live with the guilt or we push it inside until it quits bothering … Continue reading Roadblock #2
Old and over used I once thought non-Christians with Christian backgrounds experienced some event that caused them to shut the door on pursuing God and my belief likely found roots in my parents’ preacher story (read a little further). It could be it’s just what I wanted to believe, however it was an erroneous assumption. … Continue reading Roadblocks Ahead
Your Husband Will Rule Over You!? Genesis 3:16 remains a focus verse to those that think Christians do not honor women or consider women equal to men. “It seems this verse is not a prescription of what God wants; rather, it is a description of the way sin changed everything. This mutual struggle for control … Continue reading Are Women Less Valuable #2
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="fgx2wjuWFp82JmNzKPKZTuLgKyXhz3BiHnQZgEwcNmo" /> We grow up absorbing bits and pieces of the world around us without realizing this as it happens and acquire inherent convictions about what we “know” to be right or wrong . Christians are no less immune to this than seculars unless our relationship with God is based on His agenda … Continue reading Superman Story
Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door? With a thousand million questions About hate and death and war It's when we stop and look around us There is nothing that we need In a world of persecution That is burning in its greed By Justin Hayward of the Moody … Continue reading A Question of Balance
Waking each morning refreshed from a good nights sleep and feeling good in anticipation of our new day we hatch our plans with a great attitude and are happy, happy, happy, only to derail the whole process with a single thought or action. We’re capable, at any time, of assigning importance to whatever we want, … Continue reading Who Gets Left Behind?
Have you wondered what the core fascination is with Star Wars and why it grew into seven episodes (or is it more)? Yes, the graphics and action scenes are exciting and the characters are fascinating, but it is the story, the story of good versus evil on a big screen scale. The evil side has … Continue reading May the Force Be With You!
Christianity has been under attack since it’s inception, starting with the killing of Jesus himself soon followed by years of imprisonments and executions of early followers. It was Roman intent to eliminate that “pesky” belief from their empire. I mean, they already had to put up with those Jews, and now this. Much later, America … Continue reading The Attack on Christianity
A legal expert of his time asked Jesus “who is my neighbor?” in order to justify himself. In those ancient days Jews pretty much only accepted, loved or helped other Jews. You could easily be banished or worse if you did otherwise. Luke then proceeds to recite Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan, knowing full … Continue reading The First Anti-Racist
A different hat with a very different story My beliefs are grounded in my relationship with Him and upon the words He breathed through man and neither require validation by others. If I rose one day and found my Christian friends converted to Buddhism, atheism or any other “ism” this would not change what I … Continue reading Not a MAGA Hat
A continuation of previous blog....................Remaining with the subject of women and the Bible an action by Luke immediately following Jesus outline of the formation of the church, church goals and the promise of the coming Holy Spirit is noteworthy: “When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying. Those present were … Continue reading Are Women Less Valuable?
One argument commonly given over to Genesis is why God would allow an “imperfection” within His creation. Why would this be considered an imperfection? We all have a nose and because we smell unpleasant odors, is our nose imperfect because it doesn’t automatically filter these out? My case is you can easily go out of … Continue reading Is Genesis Relevant Today?
One thought to consider on this remarkable man’s claim (see previous post) came to me watching a Bill Maher “documentary”. Unlike many conservatives I keep up with the latest liberal media positions to consider their merits and reasonings in order to challenge and test my own held beliefs. In Bill Maher’s atheistic zeal to uproot … Continue reading Was God Created by Man as Bill Maher Contends?
This car is one I enjoy as an auto enthusiast. I like it a lot, however, it’s just a car and I’m it’s caretaker for now. My story is not unique. There was no magic moment nor miraculous event that brought me to the place where I no longer search for lasting joy. It is … Continue reading An Introduction to my Blog
