DOES CHRIST PROMOTE SIN?

A few days ago somebody asked the question “does Christ promote sin?” My first thought was what kind of question is that? However, I was reminded that everybody talking about Christ is not about Christ. Additionally, because this question was posed in a Christian academic setting it was necessary to determine whether it was intended to stimulate debate, entertainment or answer a legitimate question. In answer to that question, not only does Christ not promote sin, He gives us…

ARE YOU DOING YOUR BEST TO PRESENT YOURSELF TO GOD AS ONE APPROVED?

“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17 (NIV) WOW! Are you doing your best to present yourself to God as one approved? When I observe Romans 10:17; “to have faith in God one must not only know the word of Christ but believe the word of Christ, which can only happen when the word is internalized” internalizing God’s word effectively comes to mind.…

TONIGHT YOU ARE ALIVE BECAUSE HE LIVES

You are alive tonight because He lives. The Lord God will see to it that whatever you need today, this morning, afternoon, evening or night you shall have. Just don’t confuse needs with wants. God’s priorities do not take our wants into consideration unless they fit into His will. For many, this concept of shepherding may seem confusing but they need only read Philippians 4:19, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to…

The Fall: Has God Not Supplied All Your Needs?

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…

PREGNANT BELLY ETIQUETTE: WHATS A MOTHER-TO-BE TO DO?

Twenty years ago, whether or not to go out in public showboating a pregnant belly was pretty much a non-issue. But, “oh today.” Many mothers-to-be’s do not know what to do about that belly. Is there an etiquette in place for pregnant bellies or not? Well, I am old school, so I know my feelings contrast sharply when it comes to expecting mothers wearing clothing that expose an entire pregnant belly. Don’t get me wrong, I am not taking…

Distinguishing Between Holiness and Hollowness

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…

JESUS CHRIST’S CALL

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…

IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND A PSYCHIC?

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…

DRY DRUNK CHRISTIANS

A large segment of our society won’t know what “dry drunk” means, and that’s a good thing. However, the bad thing about this label is how perfectly  “dry drunk” fit’s some Christians. You see the plain and simple definition of a dry drunk is; someone who has stopped drinking, but who still demonstrates the same alcoholic behaviors and attitudes. That said; let’s get down to the “nitty-gritty” on how this description hits the nail on…

Video: Seeing My Eyes Through His

Seeing my eyes through His? Are your eyes wide shut? To recognize opportunity knocking at your door you have to be paying attention. The most wonderful thing about youthfulness is that it is blind, you rarely see it coming or going. I have no shame in my game, I know things change, which is all the more reason to drink, drink while the water of life is running. Free-flowing water is opportunity knocking at your…
