Freedom From Religion and the US Constitution?

Who can show me in the US Constitution where one can find “freedom from religion”. You won’t be able to. It’s also not found in Jefferson’s famous letter to the Danbury Baptist Association.  The reason you won’t find it is because 100% of humanity is religious.  You see- whether someone espouses Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, … Continue reading Freedom From Religion and the US Constitution?

Armed In Church? Yes, please.

The local media posted a story this morning with their usual Left-slant, claiming they had talked to local pastors (though an actual investigation finds that they actually quote exactly ONE). Their agenda is pretty clear in attacking armed churchgoers. So I crafted the following reply to post on social media, but thought it justified its … Continue reading Armed In Church? Yes, please.

What Does It Mean to Be Faithful?

We in the Christian/Church realm use the term "faithful" a lot.  Why not? It is an extremely important term used across the Bible. Sadly, I believe our contemporary (especially American version) gospel realm has adopted the secular, wordly meaning instead of the Biblical definition and example.

Just a few months ago, the Southern Baptist Convention voted to recognize and implement "Critical Race Theory" and "Intersectionality" as valid measures and procedures for measuring the denomination's "progress".  For … Continue reading Is Your Church or Denomination Going #WOKE?

Where are Your Denominational Dollars Going @SBC?

Many don't know how most Baptist denominations work - questions such as "what is the difference between the Southern Baptists and __________________ Baptists?"   One major difference between the SBC and the association that the church I pastor is a part of, is how giving to the cooperative work operates. In the Southern Baptist Convention, … Continue reading Where are Your Denominational Dollars Going @SBC?

Responsibility, Decisions, Accountability, and Politics

I have made plenty of mistakes in my life, from economic to moral, from spiritual to physical. When I was a child, my parents tried to be selective in when and how they would "bail me out" of the consequences of my errors, all with the intent of guiding me to learn from my mistakes. … Continue reading Responsibility, Decisions, Accountability, and Politics
