Stop Asking for Forgiveness

Stop Asking for Forgiveness That’s right! Knock it off. Don’t you know, you’ve already been forgiven? I started writing an article about Balance in Faith when this thought came to me and I wanted to share it with you. I believe it will help you in accepting Faith, in raising your […]

Replacing Jesus with your Pastor

Replacing Jesus with your Pastor That’s a little bit of a click-bait title but it is a solemn thought nonetheless. In the last four months I have done fairly extensive studies on the topics of Spiritual Abuse, Toxic Faith, Legalism, Cults (and what a cult is NOT), and Spiritual Authority […]

The Marks of Spiritual Leadership

Recently I was introduced (by a follower of this blog) to a list of Scriptures that does a wonderful job of displaying what Jesus’ disciples were meant to look like, how they were to behave and how they modeled Christianity to the flock – the saints of Christ. It is […]

The Commandments of Men

But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. – Matthew 15:9, KJV What are the ‘Commandments of Men‘ and why did Jesus come against this topic multiple times? Are we becoming dogmatic in our congregations and not pursuing the Commandments of God adequately, through Faith, or […]

Does your worship have Joy?

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. – Romans 14:7, KJV Just a simple and short observation. I have begun to reflect on my past Church and the worship that was practically mandatory at every service. I don’t mean […]

How? The joke was, “You know, those quote Christians unquote who pray silently, in their […]

The Gospel Transition from Jews to Gentiles – Part 3 – The Gentiles

In part 1 and part 2 of this study we have come to realize that indeed Jesus (God) came for His people, the Israelite/Jewish nation, and through the Apostles his Gospel was preached to the Jews only. But later, due to the final rejection of the Gospel by the Jewish people, […]

The Gospel Transition from Jews to Gentiles – Part 1 – Explanation

The primary goal of this blog is to rightly divide the Word of God – meaning to rightly interpret the Word based on the writers context, audience and social/cultural setting. (Hermeneutics) There are an estimated 22,000 – 33,000+ Christian denominations throughout the world right now, some of which share the vision […]

The Gospel Transition from Jews to Gentiles – Part 2 – The Jews

In Part 1 of this study, The Gospel Transition from Jews to Gentiles – Part 1 – Explanation we spoke about using Hermeneutics and the difference between pulling the meaning out of Scripture, or attempting to force our views into Scripture. We got an example of using Scripture for our denominations […]

What is a Spiritually Abusive Church?

Ask yourself one question… “If I left my church, would that cause problems with my family, work, friends? Would I be considered an outcast, a ‘backslider’, would I be shunned or avoided, thought less of, considered lost or in Satan’s snare?” If you can answer yes, read this article!
