The story of right and wrong

When I was thinking about how the Old Testament scriptures contain perhaps singularity harrowing ideas to 2018 ears, such as to stone a woman who is found not to be a virgin before her wedding night. I realized I had more to say, so…Now I have already called us to think through these hard statements…

On Excusing God

I really appreciate when people are willing to put themselves on the line for God. Such as debating atheists and pundits on morality and God. Let’s put that out there first, it is an important and good thing to do and I love watching it. I don’t know if I am quick enough on my…

Religious Freedom & Legislating Morality

In a recent post by Douglas Wilson he commented about the reasons why Christians take the stances they do: So our reasoning should go like this. You don’t get have four wives because Jesus rose from the dead. You don’t get to marry someone of your own sex because when Christ took His bride He established…

The Shack

I am writing this partly as a review for the book/movie but moreso because even though it is fiction it is teaching somethings about God. Now I understand that the point of the book is to address loss and to comfort those that may need it, but in doing so it seems to me that while general…

Dancing with God

I know very little about dancing except that you need rhythm and there should be a leader. I notice that our walk with God can be like a dance. Then I see that dancing with God, often I at times try to take lead and step on his toes. I feel like because I can feel…

Why isn’t God more fancy?

This is a follow-up to last week about wonder. Why is it that we are able to look at the wonder of our galaxy and conclude that the “Truth is out there”but we are equally as unwilling to carry that notion over to perhaps the answer being God? To me this seems to follow. If…

Laurels of your Forefathers

It is a new day, the election is over, the people have spoken. Are we stabilized or destabilized? Are we happy or fearful? How will we respond, is it time for the prayer to cease? I hope not. We can no longer rest in what those before had provided for us. We were given an…

Decide 2016 (A Time to Choose)

With America’s birthday just this week what better topic than choice?  No, this is not about the presidential candidate, but do make a decision on that as well, and probably one that respects God if you are a Christian. But the ongoing need to make a decision is a pressing issue for us all. This is…

Passionate Digression

Sharing our faith is always a good thing to do, but asking why and how are also good things to do. So…do we love our passion? They are ours to love so yeah I guess so. Is our passion God? How do you speak about God? A good question, maybe it is one I just…

On the increase of his Government

I gave this sermon on 5/22/16 about Government and the trying times we are in and how that causes us to not want to believe Romans 13:1-7. Sermon here 🙂 Below is a somewhat synopsis. I don’t want to be political as in trying to influence policy, that is not my purpose. But commenting on the…
