My Ways Are Not Your Ways
Friday, August 22nd, 2014 5:49pm
Keywords: (None)

I have an interesting little story for you guys and a bit of a life lesson to go with it.  But first a little background behind the story.  Over the past number of years I've been working very hard to get our heads (mom and I) above water financially, and both of us completely out of debt. ...

Eighteen Inches of Repentance
Thursday, August 14th, 2014 12:42pm
Keywords: (None)

One of the topics of late that I've been dealing with in my own life is repenting for the sins I have committed against God, both big and small.  Failures to trust.  Failures to obey.  Failures to do.  It's something we should all do whenever we are in prayer to God.  As hum ... View More

 
Thought for the Day: The Subtlety of Sin
Monday, August 4th, 2014 8:58am
Keywords: (None)

Interesting thought for the day.  Satan, aka Lucifer, hates everything that God loves, God made, God sets apart, or God chooses, and he will fight against it, twist it, distort it or create fake copycats of them in order to either destroy them or make himself greater than God in some way.So thi ...

Mental Hoarding
Saturday, July 19th, 2014 6:57pm
Keywords: (None)

Anyone whose known me for any length of time knows I love a good auction, bargain, garage sale, or other really good discount.  In fact, if it wasn't for the fact that money is tight, I would probably be at more auctions than I am, not to buy things most times, but just to be there, to enjo ...

What if you were immortal?

Keywords: (None)

In the recent Hollywood blockbuster "Edge of Tomorrow", lead character Tom Cruise gains a type of immortality by absorbing the blood of an alien monster, allowing himself to reset time over and over again each time he dies, making it so that time would automatically rewind to before he died so that ...

Why Test Us If God Knows All?
Sunday, July 6th, 2014 1:57am
Keywords: (None)

One of the things I've been pondering of late is why God tells us to do something, and then "tests us to see what we'll do."  If God knows everything what purpose does His testing have?  He already knows what we'll do before we do it.  So what's the purpose of our testing? Well, let's ... View More

 
The Wasted Tribute
Saturday, June 28th, 2014 12:05pm
Keywords: (None)

During my bible study this morning I ran across an interesting group of verses in Romans 13, namely verses 1-7.  It talks about respecting the powers that are over you, the government, the state and so on.  You are to respect them and pay whatever tribute they ask of you, no matter what it ...

My Way or the Trust Way?
Wednesday, June 25th, 2014 12:39pm
Keywords: (None)

One of the biggest issues in Christendom today is trust.  We fail to trust God, and we fail to trust others.  I admit that not everyone deserves our absolute trust.  In fact I'd suggest that no human deserves our absolute, unquestioned trust.  However, God does.  He never fa ... View More

"There Shall Be Showers Of Blessings."  This great hymn of the faith, written by Daniel W. Whittle in 1883 reminds us of God's incredible power to bless us, almost like r ... View More

 
What Does It Mean to Judge Others?
Tuesday, June 17th, 2014 9:00am
Keywords: (None)

One of the biggest billy clubs used against Christians the world around is "Doesn't the bible say not to judge?  So why are you judging me?"  It's used to shut us up and make us go away because our lives and our testament prick their consciences and they don't like that.  But what doe ...
