Delivered to Satan

You might be familiar with the time Paul the apostle wrote about delivering someone to Satan. If not, you can look it up. This is something I believed to be warranted when Christians abuse the written word of God and the blood of Jesus who is the Word of God. When we knowingly misuse theContinue reading “Delivered to Satan”

Tempted

I think “the flood” might be coming soon, as we see in Revelation 12. I don’t think this is an actual flood of water. I’m not certain what form the flood will take, but I do know that Jesus is the one who will protect us from it. We cannot deny Him, but we willContinue reading “Tempted”

The Challenges of Being an Outlier Christian (Part 1)

I know that many Christians find a place within various denominations and sects of Christianity, and I do not want to insult any who do. Many are my brethren. However, as a Christian who spent the last several years seeking Jesus outside of the confines of these systems, I sympathize a great deal with believersContinue reading “The Challenges of Being an Outlier Christian (Part 1)”

Considering Proverbs 10:10

10 He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall. What does the first part of this proverb mean? At first, this seems like a negative statement. Maybe it is, but it seems like the Proverbs provide contrasting statements, with one half of the proverb indicating a positive attribute and theContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:10”

Fighting in Two Fronts

Last night, I wrote about how I was feeling torn about my next steps. I think I might have some insight, but I need to think about it more over the next few days or so. I will go ahead and share so you can consider it too. What are your thoughts? Feel free toContinue reading “Fighting in Two Fronts”

Feeling Torn

As a Christian, I know that we should be “simplie concerning evil.” However, being “wise in well doing” does not always come so easy. I’m torn. It’s getting late in the day today–and maybe getting late in the day in another sense–in which time is running out–and I need to know what I should do.Continue reading “Feeling Torn”

Confessions of a Fearful and Unbelieving Servant (Part 2)

“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murders, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Fear and unbelief might not seem like such a big deal, but it can be. We all haveContinue reading “Confessions of a Fearful and Unbelieving Servant (Part 2)”

Considering Proverbs 10:9

9 He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known. Another translation of this verse is, Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out. I think we can apply this to any person or group of people who live and promote injustice. AllContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:9”

To the Christians of the United States

I’ve wrestled with many ideas over the years, and this is what I believe is right. I hear no booming voice from the heavens, but the Spirit of the Lord speaks, and we can learn to listen. Am I hearing Him or is my own heart speaking? If Jesus is the King of my heart,Continue reading “To the Christians of the United States”

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus

Philippians 2 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but inContinue reading “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus”
