Blinking Creation

Posted on August 20, 2014 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (2)
We cannot do anything in the blink of an eye unless we are Wally West or Barry Allen. Since we are not super-fast fictionalized characters in the comic book realm, we are bound by the laws of our natural world. You know who isn???t? There???s one who is not bound to the natural world because He is the One who created the very laws, well, everything really. In a blink, lives are changed; hearts are broken, mended, lost, and healed. Just think about what God can do in a blink of an eye. He could h... Read Full Post »

I'M GONNA GET YOU

Posted on June 13, 2014 at 10:40 PM Comments comments (0)

It has taken me some time, but I get it now. Join me on this trip:

 

What if I wronged you? Let’s say I gossiped about you on social media, or maybe I physically came after you. How would you react? You might want to retaliate, get even, show me up, and lay fists on me right? What if you couldn’t? You’d look to someone who could, right? In times of trial and trouble, we often throw our hands up and ask, and demand WHY from God.

Maybe you would s...

The Need 1-25-14

Posted on January 25, 2014 at 7:20 PM Comments comments (0)

I promise this won’t be a history lesson, but to understand the present or even the future, the past has to be examined. Even middle school textbooks in the most secular school districts list the birth of the cornerstone of Christianity as a fact in either 6/5 B.C. It’s just when we call Jesus Lord-well, that causes issues among the secular, agnostic, highly evolved crowd. That said, if you yourself are one that sees the Bible as an old book w...

BABY

How is it that fifty million deaths have occurred and it is labeled lawful? The next statement I make will insult you, your way of life, and your “moral” code if you are pro-choice. There, you have fair warning. I challenge you to take your beliefs and reasoning and see how they stack up against not mine, but God and The Bible. The Roe vs. Wade decision of 1973, the one where The US Supreme Court concluded that the unborn child was not really human or a person, therefore wa...

The Hidden Gospel

Say it with me, “I love Jesus!” We all do at least three times in our lives. Easter, Christmas, and when the good times are rolling. Wait that’s not right. Those are two out three occasions most fly by Christians play church to feel good or look good by attending a service with a loved one. The third, when the good times roll doesn’t qualify because we don’t know or call Jesus until we panic and then it isn’t, “I love J...

PSALM 38

Posted on June 4, 2013 at 3:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Matthew Henry wrote concerning Psalm 38:

This is one of the penitential psalms; it is full of grief and complaint from the beginning to the end. David’s sins and his afflictions are the cause of his grief and the matter of his complaints. It should seem he was now sick and in pain, which reminded him of his sins and helped to humble him for them; he was, at the same time, deserted by his friends and persecuted by his enemies; so that the psalm is calculated for ...

II CORINTHIANS 5:6-11
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in h...

DOUBT IS GOOD?

Posted on September 6, 2009 at 4:27 PM Comments comments (0)

 

I once had a roommatethat wore the saying; “You doubt me?” out. Christian people so studious anddevout in their walk with God never have moments where they doubt right? If youare saying, “Amen,” to that, I’m going to call you a liar. Now now you may notdoubt Christ as Savior, but I’m sure that when life gets in the way, even thestaunchest believer steps back, wonders why things are the way they are, andlooks to God for an answer that may not co...
