Speak now with the Fire

Yes, that is a Rage against the Machine quote with a change to it. With the rage seemingly not coming to end. It is time to speak now to the Christians who are getting caught up in all the self-righteous vainglory that is there for the getting. The Bible is pretty clear about this: Be…

Supremacy for all

This doesn’t need to be said. This shouldn’t need to be taught. It isn’t about more information. White supremacy is evil and from the pit of hell. It has been communicated so many times over, plus we already fought a couple wars over this. The world has previously rendered a verdict on this behavior. Racism…

Rebellion 101

The Atlantic recently had a great article about how the left’s tactics are becoming fundamentalist in nature especially on university campuses. They heap up judgment upon judgement bigot, racist, sexist, homophobic, upon anyone who disagrees and have started adopting language similar to sin. It wouldn’t be so bad if the reminder was to seek forgiveness, but…

A Confusion-ing

With camp having come to a close it is evident that God was speaking to all of us about our sexuality. So many questions about sex and sexuality that amazingly enough God raised up a panel of speakers to address. Kids need to understand that God did create us with a plan in mind with…

A common Thing

If something can be reduced to a mere common thing it can be ignored altogether. This is what has happened to the Bible this is happening with marriage and this is happening with God. This will continue to happen to the church. In order that the sacred can once again be trampled under foot by…

Apocalypolis

City of Destruction. We think of Apocalypse as of the end of the world. So my word would mean end of the world city or city of destruction. But what apocalypse means originally apart from our cultural influences is a revealing from the other side. It is revelation from the heavens into our dimension. We…

To Forgive or not to Forgive, that is the question?

I have spent plenty of blogs addressing the need to repent so this shouldn’t come off as me being light on such things, but there is another side of this idea. I keep seeing the notion that we as Christians are not supposed to forgive unless we see repentance first. But I don’t find that…

Pelican in her Piety

This is an image that I discovered for the first time while touring Rome a few years ago. Maybe you have seen it in stained glass? Here is a less artsy rendition: I have adopted it more or less as a theme for this blog and as a generic thumbnail filler. As I toured the…

A Man at Meal (How do you know?)

He sat in his booth looking over the menu. The selection was good. Then the waitress approached the table and placed the chips and salsa and to his delight a bean dip on the table. Complimentary is so commendable. He immediately sampled the salsa, a nice blend with a bit of spice, the cilantro coming…

As Natural as Pants

There was a funny YouTube video circling about a pastor trying to make himself more accessible to youth culture and what makes appeals to today’s world. VIDEO It was funny. There have also been blog after blog about that kind of dress coming into the church, hair color, man-buns, skinny jeans, cross dressing and what…

Signature of Heaven

I used to think that I couldn’t have a deep relationship with God until I had met certain criteria: Grow a bit more, overcome more sin, know more of my Bible, was better at prayer, you know-matured. But what was wrong was my focus, I was looking in all the wrong places. If I could…
