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”

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”

Share Your Story

I see two extremes in our society right now in how people deal with their painful stories or darker selves. On one hand, we are encouraged to stay positive and to put our best face on for others to see. Social media is well-crafted to fuel addiction, so that we get a nice boost ofContinue reading “Share Your Story”

Why I Believe in Jesus—He is the Good Shepherd

I wrote previously about the night I called out to Jesus and the effect that had on my life, but I want to share more about where I was before that night. I got “saved” and was baptized in 1996 when I was 9 years old. My mother gave me a King James bible, andContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus—He is the Good Shepherd”

Considering Proverbs 9:13-18

13 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing. 14 For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city, 15 To call passengers who go right on their ways: 16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, sheContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 9:13-18”

Gaslighting from a Christian Perspective

What is Gaslighting? Gaslighting is a manipulative tactic in which one person attempts to distort the reality of another. Gaslighting is often done to escape accountability for wrongdoing. For example, person A might have said or done something hurtful to Person B. If Person B were to bring the matter up to person A, personContinue reading “Gaslighting from a Christian Perspective”

Keep Moving Forward

Conscientious Christians who want to grow in the faith and in service to Jesus can often become discouraged. Sometimes we become discouraged by slow progress. We know that Jesus changes lives, and we want to see more of that change within our own life. Waiting for that change can be painful because we know thatContinue reading “Keep Moving Forward”
