“Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!” Colossians 2:21 (NIV) The epistle to the Colossians was written by Paul the Apostle during his first imprisonment in Rome about 61 – 62 A.D. and is included with his prison Epistles. The fact that this letter was written while Paul was in prison is of great significance because it means that he continued his walk with Jesus, spreading the Gospel even in bondage. Christians were…"DO NOT HANDLE: DO NOT TASTE: DO NOT TOUCH"
The Fall: Eve Believed God Had Not Supplied All Her Needs The Fall You may not see it today but one day you will, hopefully. We are the children of Abraham, and Abraham is the child of Adam and Eve. Like Adam and Eve, we too are disobedient, ungrateful and believe that God is holding on to something we deserve or are entitled too? 3 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the…"The Fall: Has God Not Supplied All Your Needs?"
“If God is your King you are a Queen”"Good News: Troubles Trials and Tribulations are Temporary"
“Then the king asked her, ‘What do you want, Queen Esther? What is your request? I will give it to you, even if it is half the kingdom!’” Esther 5:3 We can learn valuable lessons from godly women mentioned in the bible. Queen Esther is one of those women. She was so much more than a wise, beautiful powerful woman. She was favored by the Lord; set aside to carry out His divine will of…"THE ESSENCE OF QUEEN ESTHER: MORE THAN A PAIR OF BREAST"
Over the years, I have noticed women increasingly engaging in behavior that suggests being a woman is not enough. Even though life could not exist in absence of our womb and God, there are women who obviously cannot fathom our worth. This is evident by the growing number of women feeling compelled to rearrange their faces, pump up breasts, blow out hips, re-design vaginas, have long straight hair, tan, bleach, have a penis, or be…"ARE MEN THE MAIN REASON WOMEN GET BREAST IMPLANTS?"
Like it or not, teens having sex is here to stay. Although I don’t condone, I understand it and recognize the nature and seriousness of the issue. Additionally, since I like to keep it real, and since I married at 18 and had my first child at almost 19, I know a little about this subject. Kids raising kids is no joke. Abandoning them or ridiculing young people is not the answer either. I was…"Teen Sex: Sin and Saving Our Children"
Jesus assured us that He will bring to full completion the work He began. Knowing this, we should acknowledge that personal holiness can only be realized when one incorporates discipline into his or her life for the sole purpose of engaging in the study of becoming more like Jesus. The bible teaches how to be more like Jesus. Leading a spiritually disciplined life leads to a personal holy life. According, to Pastor John Russell, the…"Distinguishing Between Holiness and Hollowness"
The focal point of this writing is to connect the “being” to the “doing” of a Christian life. Additionally, understanding what is required to serve God, and how to grow in Christ so we can glorify Him, throughout our lifetime is addressed. Simply put, “to live a Christian life one must be a Christian, and “being” and “claiming” to be a Christian are two different things. Furthermore, to do good deeds, worthy of Jesus Christ’s…"JESUS CHRIST’S CALL"
A few days ago I starting giving some thought to what kind of work-at-home career I can have when my unemployment runs out in a couple of months. Even though I’ve applied for jobs as required to receive unemployment benefits, nothing’s panning out. So what I’m doing is being pro-active! I’m not waiting until I get that last check. And actually I love blogging, so I’ve even considered making that a career instead of a…"IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND A PSYCHIC?"
In my opinion, the church failed youth and elderly people, both populations are negatively affected by this “new school thought” on Christianity. Mature Christians are in many cases a big part of worldly, family and spiritual problems. Many youths find themselves struggling to find their footing because too many mature adults show hypocritical behavior, eventually causing young people to stumble. The days of “do as I say and not as I do” are long…"In My Opinion the Contemporary Church Failed Youth and Elderly People"
