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…

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…

Another Angle

What we need to care about is conversion. It is conversion from unbelief not a cleaning up of a track record. I know that I used to buffet against this idea only because I heard or it may have been said in such a way that sanctification was not in mind. But in my own…

Christ given Freedom

I have been listening to a lot of worship which is a good thing to do as being a worship pastor is part of my responsibilities. I had a wonderful experience and I truly worshiped God. I deeply love these experiences as they draw me closer to God. Later, as the play-list continued I started to…

Self-Conscious

This is a phrase we do not use that much anymore. We do not want to be too self-conscious because we wouldn’t want to bring an accusation against what the world tells us is wholesome, good, beautiful and needs to be coddled. We wouldn’t want to place ourselves into a state of victim-hood would we?…

A Physical Tendency

With reading through the Old Testament again I am struck with often the Israelites ran after other gods. I remember the mount Sinai episode where they fashion a golden calf. How often they seem to gravitate towards a god with a representation. It requires less faith when I have something within my eyesight. If I…

Targeting your Protest

We have the latest Christian protest on our hands. Target has adopted a new policy allowing trans-gendered individuals to assert their sexuality in bathrooms across the stores. People who accept their own biology get upset. Christians protest. Some have already pointed out that to protest this would really lead to so many other such financial decisions…

Come Let Us Return Unto The Lord

New York Daily News’ provocative article about God failing to address our nation’s violence. “God isn’t fixing this”. We hide behind useless platitudes. We call on God and he does nothing. I don’t remember them printing their prayers for help, you know, in big bold print so God is sure to read it from the…

I can’t see your Faith Brother (brothers part 1)

Commenting on someone’s faith, no I would rather not do it.  This becomes the inevitable conclusion of trying to minister in categories and ministering in categories is the inevitable conclusion focusing on sheep and goats. This is why election discussion are nor truly helpful from a pastoral perspective. We can only approach people as potential followers…
