Why I Believe in Jesus: He is the Physician

It can feel awkward talking or writing about the things Jesus has done for you. On one hand, I want to talk about who I was and the changes He made in me so that He is honored and so that others might be encouraged. However, I also understand that doing so can be offContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus: He is the Physician”

Considering Proverbs 10:2

2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death. As Christians, we know that the only righteousness that will deliver us from death is the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Our own righteousness is not enough and never will be. As Christians, we also know that there is nothing we can do to earn theContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:2”

What Matters Most

In times of confusion, strife, and division, it can be easy to lose sight of what matters most. Today, I am going to republish two posts from my former website, kindlingtruth.com. This might not be what you expect. This is not about confusion, strife, and division among the nation in terms of politics. Instead, thisContinue reading “What Matters Most”

Considering Proverbs 10:1

The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother. If we consider wisdom as synonymous with godliness, as described in earlier chapters of the Proverbs, then we can see how a father would be glad to have a wise son. We can alsoContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:1”

The Problem with Kings–We are the Four Horsemen

This was originally posted on October 4, 2019 on my first website, http://www.kindlingtruth.com I abandoned that project for a few reasons, and I’ve been thinking about that decision lately. I’m not sure that I made the right choice. In any case, I have decided to republish some of the articles from that website to thisContinue reading “The Problem with Kings–We are the Four Horsemen”

Sheep and Goats

Jesus said that He would one day divide the just from the unjust, and part of that dividing has to do with our response to those in need. Jesus said, “insomuch as you did it not unto one of the least of these my brethren, you did it not unto me.” When we shut compassionContinue reading “Sheep and Goats”

Study to Show Yourself Approved

I have spent many hours considering the resurrection. As a Christian, I consider it my duty to consider all Christian teachings for myself prayerfully to the best of my ability. To simply take what we are told without doing the work ourselves is lazy, and not the mark of a faithful servant…though I understand theContinue reading “Study to Show Yourself Approved”

A Simple Rebuttal of the Rapture in Favor of the Resurrection

Please read this from beginning to end prayerfully before refusing or responding. As Christians, we are fellow servants one to the other. We each have our own God-given gifts for the edification of the church, and we need each other. This is written with love to you, and I ask that you please take theContinue reading “A Simple Rebuttal of the Rapture in Favor of the Resurrection”

Terrible Mothers: Sabotaged Education

Fathers are of fundamental importance, but as a mother, I think a lot about the importance of good mothering. My relationship with my own mother has been strained—and that is putting it lightly. Due to lack of proper example and a slew of mental/emotional problems I carried, I did not know how to be aContinue reading “Terrible Mothers: Sabotaged Education”

Rapture…or Resurrection?

The Rapture? … Or the Resurrection (and transfiguration)? 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleepContinue reading “Rapture…or Resurrection?”
