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…

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…

Temptation: Do Not Put the Lord your God to the Test

“5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 saying to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, ‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and ‘On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.’” 7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘Do not…

ARE MEN THE MAIN REASON WOMEN GET BREAST IMPLANTS?

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…

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…

When God Speaks I Listen

  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking at your own interests, but each of you to the interest of others. Philippians 2:3-4 NIV About four years ago, I belonged to a church that is considered progressive. The pastor allowed young men to deliver the sermon on youth day. I thought this was pretty cool. Not only did young pastors preach young people ran…

SEEING WHO GOD SEES IN THE MIRROR

When we look in the mirror it’s rare to see what God sees. That’s because our vision, thoughts, and opinions of ourselves are not his. In other words, “no matter how much we think we got it all right the possibility that it’s mostly wrong is very very real. Why do you think that is? Well, for starters we are not perfect. Yes, even perfect Patty, pretty Paula or smart Susan fall short somewhere. All…
