Nashville and Statements

So recently Nashville put together a statement about the stance of the church on basic sexuality covering issues such as marriage, homosexuality, fidelity etc. The blow-back has been as expected, huge. Now it is both confusing why the world is surprised that the church seeks to adhere to historical biblical doctrine and not at all…

Some Hebrew (Commandment 3)

Dennis Prager shares a bit about the 3rd commandment which I think is very helpful and informative to non native speaking Hebrew people. He focuses on the this first word Nasa. Nasa means to carry, take, lift, bear. We often simply translate it to take. This still doesn’t quite help us yet to another full…

Helping Hands

Pray for the Houston Texas area as the rains have fallen. God have mercy and grant speed to the first responders. Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc. Here in Arizona with Monsoon season we are not unfamiliar with flooding, but nothing like this. Houston Texas is under water but thankfully God has promised never to flood…

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…
