At one time within my personal life, lies were just another part of who I was. It was not a big deal to lie to my parents. It was no problem to lie to cover up something that I was doing which directly broke a rule, a law or a moral standard.

I am not a great theologian, but there are certain things that were realized as I read His Word this morning. The Rich Young Man 16 And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” 17 And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good?

Before I am judged as a hypocrite, I would like to explain how and why I have been feeling this way. So often I read the words of others. There are categories and topics that I follow on WordPress that I will not … Continue reading The Mean and Abusive Christian
Why can’t we just read the Bible, do our study, encourage one another in Spirit, truth and love, and leave the ‘I’m right and you’re wrong’ debate out? Can we not assess and come up with our decision? I have been on WordPress today reading many posts. Some are plain silly.
