Considering Proverbs 11:3

The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them. The upright are guided by their integrity. The transgressors are destroyed by their perverseness. These sorts of contrasting proverbs are interesting because as a Christian, I know that we are all sinners. I know what it is like toContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:3”

Fellow Students Instead of Superiors

Approaching our brethren as fellow students of Jesus and the Apostles and not as their superiors opens communication. If you have a Christian blog or some other form of educational/exhorting/edifying public ministry, then you probably have something to share. That’s good. I have things to share too. I was just thinking about the way weContinue reading “Fellow Students Instead of Superiors”

Murder as Defined by Jesus: Part 3

23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way withContinue reading “Murder as Defined by Jesus: Part 3”

Murder as Defined by Jesus: Part 2

21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to hisContinue reading “Murder as Defined by Jesus: Part 2”

Global Warming or Gaslighting?

If you repeat a false idea long enough, the idea is accepted as truth. This is one of many forms of gaslighting. Is global warming a real threat or is this just another gaslighting tactic used to create fear, panic, division, and encourage people to give up their freedoms in favor of an authoritarian regimeContinue reading “Global Warming or Gaslighting?”

What if She Had Taken the Time to Share Jesus With Me?

Have you ever encountered someone that seemed too steeped in sin to care about taking Christianity seriously? This evening I’ve been thinking about someone I have not thought about in a long time–someone who probably thought that I was too steeped in sin to care about taking Christianity seriously. This was a co-worker of mine.Continue reading “What if She Had Taken the Time to Share Jesus With Me?”

Considering Proverbs 11:2

When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom. This reminds me of something Jesus said. “I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.” In Matthew Chapter 11,Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:2”

Fear is a Form of Worship

I don’t always fear God as I should. This is especially true when I begin to exalt my fears as being higher and mightier forces in my life than God Himself. I was talking with a loved one yesterday about this cycle I tend to go through. I have a lot of responsibilities in thisContinue reading “Fear is a Form of Worship”

“Mother Earth” Isn’t Angry.

God is. Thanks be to God, that the anger of God is not as the anger of Man. All things are under His full knowledge and control…even the so-called whims and rage of “Mother Earth.” He is not surprised by anything nor is He undermined by any plan that Man has in store. Neither isContinue reading ““Mother Earth” Isn’t Angry.”
