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?”

Triangulation from a Christian Perspective

Triangulation has differing definitions depending on the context. The context I am thinking about has to do with a certain type of interaction between people. In this interaction, one person is pulling the strings of two (or more) people, using them for their own purposes—almost always causing some form of drama that they will benefitContinue reading “Triangulation from a Christian Perspective”

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”

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.

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”

Why I Believe in Jesus—He is Truth

In my last testimony article, I wrote about the point in time when Jesus began to take over my life in a meaningful way. I prayed and He answered in a way that I did not expect. One of the main reasons why I prayed to Jesus that night was because I needed answers. IContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus—He is Truth”

Considering Proverbs 9:12

12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it. I could be looking at the verse wrong, but this is how I read it: if you are wise, you do yourself good. If you scoff at wisdom, then you will bear your foolishness alone.
