I would not have you Ignorant …

This phrase can be found (4) times in the KJV Bible translation, and it always points towards a particular topic of discussion, such as not being ignorant of how Satan operates, or how Spiritual Gifts operate. God doesn’t want us un-educated about certain and important topics. As I pondered a […]

Are we cherry picking the Scripture?

Are we [Christians] guilty of Cherry Picking Scripture? I think it’s probably true for all of us, each denomination, category or flavor. We know who we are, what line or verse resonates with our ideas, so we sort of…make it…Our Scripture! I even wonder sometimes if we know we are […]

Strangers on a Plane

http://wp.me/p5Mhr6-6Al Reblog of an amazing post by Beautybeyondbones about missing an opportunity to impact the lives of those around us! Open up, get connected, make changes, love people. God Bless

When it’s Right to be Wrong

Arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand they say. Or, Ignorance is Bliss. I believe the first one, but the second is misleading. It’s somewhat akin to the lie our parents always told us (at least, mine did), “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me“. […]

Fight for Faith

Fight for Faith – because it is worth it! The simplicity of the Gospel is that Christ, while you and I were yet sinners, died for us. He came in the weakness of flesh to end the battle of the Law for Righteousness (legalism). He took the penalties for our […]

It’s time to Look Up!

Have you ever noticed how life can be filled with so many downs? When we get sick we have to lay down. When things don’t go well – we feel down. Our car breaks down, business has gone down, payroll goes down, the internet went down (God forbid!), our number of […]

A Moment of Faith

A Moment of Faith Have you ever caught yourself in the middle of one of those coincidence moments and wondered was this really coincidence? Was God somehow in the moment, working things out for good, increasing your faith? Sometimes the answer comes at a later date, when you have had time to consider […]

Public Shaming has no place in Christianity

Public Shaming (aka Forced Confession) has no place in Christianity! Healthy and unhealthy Church is inextricably linked to the form of a marriage relationship, or a parent/child relationship. It is no wonder God gave us power to become the ‘sons’ of God (John 1:12) or that we are considered the […]

Put Your Money Where Their Mouth Is

Put Your Money Where Their Mouth Is Yesterday I had a very provoking conversation with a man I respect about our Journeys of Faith, and what we believe ‘Being a Christian’ means. Eventually, we talked about money, offerings, the principal of tithing and where that money goes. We also talked about […]

Learning to Love like She did

May 9th, 1945 – January 20th, 2017. My mother was 71 years old when I brushed her forehead and watched her take her last breath. On December 10th of 2016 she was placed on hospice care and I immediately moved her into my home. I promised her I would never […]
