I Didn’t Sign Up For This…Or Did I?

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 3:12 One of the most pervasive untruths spread by many so-called 'new gospels' seem to give the impression that once you've given your heart to Jesus, He makes everything alright, all your problems go away and there will be nothing but … Continue reading I Didn’t Sign Up For This…Or Did I?

Careful What You Pray For-You Might Just Get It!

I've heard people say that when they pray, and ask God for something, they pray specifically. Not a thing wrong with that. 1 John 5:15 says: And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of him. It says whatever we ask right? … Continue reading Careful What You Pray For-You Might Just Get It!

Don’t Tickle My Ears-Tell Me The Truth!

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned to fables. (2 Timothy 4:3-4) A smile.

Scripture tells us plainly … Continue reading The Devil’s Joy or Things Church Folk Do That Make the Devil Smile

Profanity in the Pews

What did he say? My mind blinked. Then it paused just before it began to race with a flood of emotions. How should I react to this? Should I be angry? Embarrassed? Offended? I sat there nonplussed as my brain struggled to make sense of what my now burning ears had just heard. I mean the venue was safe enough or … Continue reading Profanity in the Pews

Leaving The Word Behind

Allow me to set the stage. Several years back I was standing outside of a church after the service. The weather was cold, raw and damp. The preacher that day was compelling and dynamic. As people continued to file out, adjusting their coats and jackets to the inclement weather, out comes the preacher of the day, dressed … Continue reading Leaving The Word Behind
