I Couldn’t See The Forest For The Logs In My Own Eyes 

Written on January 16, 2018 at 1:04 pm, by

We must be ever on guard against the insistent trait of normalcy that we criticize others with little attention to our own falsehood.  This sensitivity warning was declared by Jesus and admitted by Paul.  We are never better than the next person… every… next… person. That disposition is not what I held in the beginning […]

Just What Else Might God Be Hiding? 

Written on January 9, 2018 at 1:27 pm, by

It seems, historically speaking, that every generation of mankind is sorta lulled to sleep by discovery.  I mean there is a tendency on the part of those who have little interest in imagination and adventure to believe that the latest great finding about wraps it up.  What’s left in life, they believe, is to live […]

Knowing The Absolutely Astonishing God 

Written on January 2, 2018 at 12:08 pm, by

Would you perhaps be in need of refocus?  Is there a slight chance that you have slipped into a commatic motion of going through yours days–day in and day out–operating more from habit than adventure?  Are you noticing that life doesn’t seem to have much creativity within its fold? Are you about routined out? I’m […]

THE GOD CONCEPT

Written on December 26, 2017 at 12:21 pm, by

Is God real?  Does He truly exist?  Or, is this also one more folklore-ish concepts created by the grand imaginations from yesteryear? The answer is that by faith many of us believe that God does, in fact, exist eternally.  Others, however, have faith that He doesn’t.  Opposing sides can only reach such conclusions based upon […]

Living In The Last Days: The Doctrine Of Compensationalism

Written on December 19, 2017 at 11:44 am, by

We hear often about schisms and isms in the religious world.  Much forecasting as to the Second Coming and the end times springs forth from variational voices.  Some might be true.  Others might be partially true.  While, yet, a portion of the spiritual predictions may simply be made up. I introduce Compensationalism which is a […]

Living in a Seatbelt Society 

Written on December 12, 2017 at 11:15 am, by

We have designed within our minds an ideal church that is two things; happy and safe.  However, this isn’t reality.  This isn’t the church that Jesus built.  Yet, it is the very weave we choose to form organizational tactics. The Jesus-Life continues to be the ultimate call for every heart.  Its powerful impact remains available […]

The “I’m More Right Than You Are Right” Religious Poison 

Written on December 5, 2017 at 12:15 pm, by

We must break this sleeping narcotic of religious egotism which competes as to who is the better understander of God’s will and way.  This is a we thing; not only a they, not just a you, but a definite me as well.  Unnecessary division reigns supreme and we must reverse this trend. There is a […]

The Gigantic Size Of Life

Written on November 28, 2017 at 11:31 am, by

Trying to negotiate the twists and turns in our trek can be both fascinating as well as disturbing.  Little goes on well but what upset or interference….interferes.  We can’t seem to catch a break.  Our intentions are good.  We even find that we have succeeded in places.  But the DistractorFactor walks right in and sits […]

Discouragement is the Launching Pad to Wonder!!! 

Written on November 21, 2017 at 10:36 am, by

Everywhere we turn we are faced with discouragement, resentment, and sometimes even depression.  If not within ourselves, we see it to be true of our friends, colleagues, and relatives.  Being “blue” is epidemic in nature.  No one escapes the steady encounter of this Meany.  No.  One. I speak with a bit of authority for I […]

Enamorization With God? 

Written on November 14, 2017 at 11:21 am, by

Sunday came!  It’s here folks!  No, I’m not kidding!  Sunday is here! It’s a strange admission, but my initiation into the church culture didn’t seem to take when it came to my being in awe of God.  I wasn’t.  I’m not saying that I wasn’t taught it.  But, I soon became devoted to getting church […]
