Don’t Follow The Wrong Leader

Do you remember when you first came to Christ? Do you remember how you wanted to know him more to know everything about him?  Do you remember how you felt and how you just wanted to be in his presence?  What happened?  You went to church every Sunday, you attended Sunday school, you attended small group, […]

Guilt Will Never Bring Grace

I hear it and even say it, “Why isn’t so-and-so here working.”  I have heard people pray that some one would be moved to show up more often to meetings.  I have even been asked where I was when work was being done because, “It would have been nice to have more help.”  Guilt is […]

Being Smart In God

I’m always amazed at how God can change our thinking in an instant, but that instant usually comes after we have put effort into understanding what he was trying to get us to see for years.  As I was reading 1st Corinthians chapter 1 trying to learn more about God’s grace to me I realized […]

Being In Church Will Not Grow You As A Disciple

Now that that fact is out in the open, let me explain what it means.  Have you ever been to a church where there is an older lady or gentleman who upon the surface looks gentle and loving, then after several minutes of polite conversation they begin to explain to you how the pastor is […]

Your Reputation Is Not Your’s To Defend

The scripture I am going to quote is one of the most misused by church people when they act stupid and others call them out on it.  God will bless you when people insult you, mistreat you, and tell all kinds of evil lies about you because of me. Be happy and excited! You will […]

Community Communion

Many of us go to church weekly, and take communion on a regular basis, but have you ever thought about what it should be? We in the modern church take communion normally as a piece of bread and a small amount of grape juice, and while those are the two things Jesus used to symbolize […]

Piper’s Desiring God, Not For Me

I don’t want to sound like Desiring God is not a good premise, but I don’t agree with John Piper’s view on how to go about it. Not being a Calvinist, probably makes me the worst person to review this book, so I will be fair. If you are a Calvinist this book is probably […]

Women, Work, And The Bible

I’ll start out by acknowledging this will make some people mad.  I will get hateful comments from people who hide behind anonymous email addresses, and that is okay with me.  If others get to espouse their beliefs, then so can I. Does the bible say women shouldn’t work outside the home? No it doesn’t.  That is […]

What or Whom Do You Reflect to Others?

In the book of Matthew Jesus tells us that where we put our treasure is where our heart will be.  I believe that has a lot to do with where our time is spent as well.  Where and what we spend our time on is what we will reflect to the world.  Whether it is […]
