I DIDN’T FORGET 911

Thank you Jesus for allowing us to see and live through another 911. Today is September 15, 2013, a day some said we wouldn’t live to see. It appears that once again you’ve proven yourself omnipotent, all knowing, and mysterious. Though your Word tells us we will not know the hour nor minute, often those Words fall on deaf ears, evidenced by men of the world attempting to predict the end of time. How they…

SHOULD CHURCHES BE TAX EXEMPT? MAYBE NOT!

Courtesy: MSN Money: Jason Notte A few hours ago on the MSN site, in the Money section, writer Jason Notte published a post titled; “Maybe churches shouldn’t be tax-exempt.” He says, as a debate over clergy openly endorsing political candidates heats up, there’s a simple solution….. I’m always a little leery when I hear somebody say a complicated matter has a simple solution…but you can read more of Jason’s article by clicking the link below. While MSN’s…

ARE YOU A CODEPENDENT CHRISTIAN?

While there are several signs of a co-dependent Christian, before we get into that we need to make sure everybody understands what codependency means. The original concept of codependency was developed to recognize responses and behaviors people take on when living with an alcoholic or substance abuser. However today, codependency has a broader description, which includes a dysfunctional pattern of living and problem solving during childhood by family rules. But for the purpose of my post,…

IS THE DEVIL MAKING YOU DO IT?

2 Corinthians 3 Ministers of the New Covenant 3:1 Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some do, letters of recommendation to you, or from you? 2 You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our [1] hearts, to be known and read by all. 3 And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone…

ARROGANCE PRIDE AND STUPIDITY MAN’S COCKTAIL FOR DEMISE

Repost from 12/21/12; God always does… something devastating in the lives of arrogant, prideful people and He does it right before they’re very eyes. Surprisingly, they miss the boat every time. They miss it because they have made themselves gods, unaware that doing so barred them from access to God’s wisdom, which is reserved only for those who acknowledge him as their Lord and Savior. Time and time again He shows us that He’s able…

Why did Marissa Alexander get a 20-year sentence despite invoking ‘Stand Your Ground’?

Florida again;   The issue of self-defense played a central role in Zimmerman’s not guilty plea and his defense’s argument against the second-degree murder charges. Actually, as we all know Zimmerman was acquitted. Marissa Alexander, and African-American Florida woman, on the other hand wasn’t so lucky. Alexander, an African-American Florida woman, was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2012 for shooting what she described as warning shots into a wall during a confrontation with her husband. Like…

HELPING HEAVY HEARTS FIND LIGHT IN DARKNESS

7/10/13 My Post from “Blog For A Cure” cancer site; Hi everybody; It’s been about 10 months since I posted but you all are always in my heart.

PASTOR ASKS CONGREGATION FOR $50,000.00 TO REPLACE HELICOPTER BLADES

OK here we go again. How do you go to your congregation asking for $50,000.00 to replace helicopter blades? Pastor IV Hilliard of  Mega church New Light Church in Houston, TX did.  “Now I don’t even have to wonder if there are members in the church who don’t even have a car. Now Pastor Hilliard lives in a 24, 000 sf plus mansion, so I guess one would assume he would have a helicopter too.…

MAKING PEACE WITH GOD’S RAIN

  The storms of life are no fun, yet they come anyway. For some reason, unless we’re swimming, bathing or showering people don’t want to get wet. On the contrary, there is an exception “when the heart is overflowing with love? ” It seems that when walking in the rain with the one you love you forget about the storms of life. In fact, the rain feels good, refreshing and romantic. If you’ve ever been…
