Mob Justice for All

There is a lot of talk in the political sphere about mobs. Everyone is pointing out how the other side is a mob, and then denying it for themselves, even when it is captured in full color on Television. A friend of mine recently asked a good question. How would you even know if you…

“Doing You”- Conflict is not detrimental

I keep hearing this refrain that “You do you, until that bumps into someone else” as if that was some kind of rule for life. Well the problem is that is a recipe for staying in bed everyday. You are going to bump into other people. When you think and process ideas, not sometimes, but…

Taste and See…

How many of us have ever had a dish that our friends continually wanted us to try? A dish they keep recommending that despite you saying no, you keep hearing about? I feel sad when people won’t try guacamole. However for me it is sushi, I don’t really do fish in general, so I definitely…

Love the wife of your youth

I am convinced there is still no better love song, no sexier song than Take my Breath Away by Berlin. I know, I have a preference for the eighties. Though Unchained Melody covered by U2 is a strong contender. But the point is not to talk about music but this season of love. Love your…

Overwhelmed by Media

The Gospel coalition just had a good article on something I was formulating. Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21 The idea being how we become exhausted by Social Media. The article mentioned the area of jealousy, which is a fantastic thing to reflect on. Do the lives of…

Testing your Mind-field

Paul tell us to renew ours minds. This is good advice. Consider this post a follow up to Garbage in, Garbage out. The mind is a field of many thoughts both good and bad, both helpful and destructive. Paul reminds us that our minds tend to pick things up, they are sponges that collect. Our minds-eye sees…

Emotive Motives

A follow up on emotional states. Emotional intelligence seems to be on the decline theses days. Our hearts need temperance the same way out lusts do. We are told to renew our minds according to Christ. Our hearts and minds will be tempted to think their own sinful thoughts in their own sinful ways. The…

A Cathartic Resolve

I was going to write about how God has the biggest button, but I decided against it. Too funny. Resolutions are a good thing even though it is easy to mock them. We have lots of goals, but what do we actually achieve? We want to be fitter, happier, as Radiohead taught us but then…

On Moralizing Voting

So I view this as a follow-up to the piece I wrote on Religious Freedom & Legislating Morality which this is basically the other side of the coin. They are basically the same idea. Since the Roy Moore debacle has ended, thank God, there is still a principle to discuss. The noise gets louder when a…

Chasing Unity

Unity is important. However, some view the church’s current grasp of unity as worse than a dumpster fire. But it is important, so let us start off with that OK? Being united in Christ is something that comes naturally to a body that agrees the head is Christ. Just because some individual members might want…
