At first iI was TOLERANCE- out of “Christian love of your LGBTQ+ neighbor” and “for the sake of the gospel”... Just “tolerate”... Coexist. Let it go... But that wasn't good enough, so then it became... ACCEPT- you and your church must be accepting of these identities and lifestyle choices. Just accept them for who hey … Continue reading Endless Discontent and LGBTQetc+++
The Product of Warnings Ignored
It is a rare breed that would deny that our nation (and the world) is in dramatic decline. Certainly there would be massive disagreement over what constitutes that decline, as well as the solution. But one thing rings true no matter what: Morally and Spiritually, America is likely at its lowest point in her almost … Continue reading The Product of Warnings Ignored
For Sake of God’s Kingdom: OPEN THE CHURCH!
This past Sunday, thousands of small house churches met in China, Iran, Indonesia, Afghanistan, and several other nations that are lethally-hostile to Christianity. Each led by a pastor, an elder, or simply a layperson who understands Christ's call to His churches to assemble regularly together. Each faced slightly differing threats - some from neighbors, others … Continue reading For Sake of God’s Kingdom: OPEN THE CHURCH!
Numbness and Psalm 51…
Have you ever simply felt numb? The kind of numbness that envelops you like the cold depths of a lake as you sink ever-deeper into the cold grip of the waters? Yeah... I now am beginning to understand the concept. For those who may not know - in April, I lost my mother, Judy Harris. … Continue reading Numbness and Psalm 51…
Don’t Erase Our History
This year is on course to be the most insane year in American history. From a pandemic exposing the indoctrination culture that is willing to give up essential liberties for an imagined degree of "safety", to the current explosion superficially focused on "race" and #BlackLivesMatter - we as a nation have collectively lost our minds. … Continue reading Don’t Erase Our History
What's in a date change? Beyond some business and personal fiscal year change (particularly tax year) stuff - the change from one year to the next is little more than the turn of a page on a calendar (or the putting up of a new calendar). Yet we have made the year change into something … Continue reading 2018—>2019?
A Burger King god
This post was originally posted by the author on his Old Blog and represents one of his favorite (and oldest) posts. There is a "new" and destructive trend blowing through Christianity. But in reality, this trend is nothing new. The Apostle Paul wrote stern warnings, and Jesus Himself warned of this trend. But even if we … Continue reading A Burger King god
Who Is Jesus? (Deity of Christ) Part 5: Who Can Forgive but God?
Luke 5:20-21 And when he saw their faith, he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Jesus clearly made many claims of His own Deity - see the previous installments of this series … Continue reading Who Is Jesus? (Deity of Christ) Part 5: Who Can Forgive but God?
Part 4: Who Alone Is to be Worshipped?
Matthew 4:10 Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.” While being tempted by Satan in the wilderness, Jesus responded to Satan's calling for Jesus to worship him in exchange for all the kingdoms of the earth, Jesus … Continue reading Part 4: Who Alone Is to be Worshipped?
Who Is Jesus (Deity of Christ) Part 3: Seeking the the Real Jesus – My Lord, My God!
I cannot help but be blown away by the words of "doubting" Thomas in his confession of faith found in John 20:28 - “My Lord and my God!” Thomas didn't just express Jesus' position above him ("Lord" - κύριος - literally "supreme authority"), but he also called Jesus God (θεός - Deity/Supreme Divinity). The Apostle Paul … Continue reading Who Is Jesus (Deity of Christ) Part 3: Seeking the the Real Jesus – My Lord, My God!
