Why do most church going people tend to stick their noses in the air? It’s a serious question. I cannot seem to wrap my head around this pattern that is consistently laid out before me. They look down upon the rest of the world–both people like myself, as well as those who choose not to have the same beliefs. Is this really how Jesus–the man … Continue reading Christian Love?
Some of the signs of problems in doctrine are that there is a desire to retain some form of law by which to have control over people. A failure to let go of the Mosaic law, and to introduce further laws, even such as “The commandments of Christ” that then bite in as being a […] via SIGNS OF PROBLEMS IN SECTS AND OTHER VARIATIONS OF … Continue reading A Shared Blogger’s Post: SIGNS OF PROBLEMS IN SECTS AND OTHER VARIATIONS OF THE GOSPEL  — CROSSROMAN
I continuously read a lot of posts about the God of Christianity, and it continues to cause me to be uncomfortable, at times. So many times I ask myself the question: “How do they know?” I understand we can draw our conclusions from what we read in the Bible, and that some have the revelation of Holy Spirit in their interpretation (SOME), but seriously… Why … Continue reading Prophet Watch…?
I’m tapping out! You win! Go ahead, freely lie to the world! Carry on with your sin! It’s okay, I guess? No longer a problem here. Just remember who told you when consequence draws near. Tell others they’re safe from the game men have conducted while your life falls to pieces due to fools you’ve entrusted. Do you need security? A safety net? A social … Continue reading Kill The Messenger
I was listening to the lyrics of a song when I began to see a great truth within everyone. This “truth” is the realities of our individual experiences: Everything that we have been through and have experienced with our senses. The way we have seen our individual worlds and all that we have become, up until this very moment. Our reality; what is real, solely, … Continue reading Gab and Jab
If it weren’t for the faith I have in Christ removing all sin — past, present and future — I’d give up. Yes, you heard that correctly. I’ve had several days off of work, and it was supposed to be an extended weekend — to myself, mainly — full of rest and relaxation. For the most part, it has been. I’ve done things that I … Continue reading I Don’t Know?
If we realized that we are forgiven through the Christ who did die for all, we would begin to see our need for Him… Are we still condemned since “the fall“? I have a problem with those who say we must obey in order to be redeemed; in order to be able to say that we are HOLY in the eye of God. As if … Continue reading No Addition
I am a very tall and very slender man. I have a partial finger, due to the fact of it being accidently cut off during a knife fight with my grandpa. I am a professional bricklayer. My left eye is not the same color as the right. Yep, that’s me! Umm, no. No, it isn’t. As a blogger, I have the opportunity to place words … Continue reading Hidden Behind Our Words
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. If I could get away with lying and pulling through with no consequence, … Continue reading Living A Lie
Attending the building we know as, “church,” we are face to, well, not face to face. We are face to back of head. We are at a performance. Much like a theatre. The director, also known as a Pastor, is at the stage. There may be a band on the stage, or a choir, or both. At many of these places, the director instructs the … Continue reading If The Pews Faced Each Other
The Grand Canyon in the northwestern part of Arizona was formed by the Colorado River. Over time, the huge gorge was carved by the movement of water. The steep-sided canyon is over a mile deep and up to eighteen miles wide. It is quite a vast place. That river had a lot of time to cut so deeply. The constant flow and its persistence has … Continue reading The Damage Done
The man or woman with a smile that can light up a room, instantly putting a smile on everyone who is within sight of it. That person who always has a witty joke to share. The guy who goes into the soup kitchen on Saturday to help feed the homeless. A woman whose life revolves around making sure her children have everything they need in … Continue reading Disarray
Here’s some honesty. I purposely do not follow certain Christians on WordPress for one simple reason: They make me feel like I’m not good enough. There are a few categories that I follow, and I find many writings within these categories from individuals all over the world. Different interpretations of His Word. Different feelings of what the meaning is. Lots of personal opinions. Lots of … Continue reading Only He Knows The Heart
Walk in Light 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful … Continue reading Awakened
The countdown clock to the opening production. The lights, fog, perfectly tuned sound, huge monitors, nicely dressed performers and the perfectly scripted commentaries. Maybe after this, a plate or basket is passed as someone is desperately trying to convince everyone that a tenth is required to be given to the church. Then, another performance commences. The moment everyone has been waiting for. The front-and-center man … Continue reading What Is Your Walk Rooted In?
It has been yet another long work week, and I have been so incredibly thankful for this day of rest. I woke at 2 A.M. this morning, which is not even close to the time I’d wished to get up on a Saturday. This past week has been very hard on my body. But, I woke up and spent some time writing, reading and just … Continue reading He Stands At My Door
Is it impossible to know God? We as humans have this deep and burning desire to figure Him out. As Christ-followers, we desperately try to know His heart, know His ways, know His plan, know His Word, know what we should do, know His will, know His thoughts. We desire to know everything there is to know about Him. There are so many different teachers, … Continue reading We Are (Supposed To Be) United
