Considering Proverbs 10:6

Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. What does this mean? Those who do justly receive blessing from God. That makes sense. What about, “violence covers the mouth of the wicked?” Does this mean that the wicked will have their mouth stopped violently? Does this meanContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:6”

Remember Who Loved Us First

I’ve always had the mindset that a person must repent before they can be forgiven. I think this is true to a degree. How can we approach someone for forgiveness if we don’t see and admit to our fault? It is also important to admit our faults to the people we harmed, because validating theirContinue reading “Remember Who Loved Us First”

The Hour of Temptation

What happens when you expose someone who is as a “white-washed tomb filled with dead man’s bones?” Sometimes they might rage at you in attempts to scare you off so that you will back down. Sometimes they polish their tomb so that it is as white and bright as possible, so that they can continueContinue reading “The Hour of Temptation”

How I Judge Forgiveness and Unforgiveness (Clarification)

What do I mean when I say, “Maybe if the Holy Spirit gives you the right words, they will repent. If not, they will die. It is a sad reality.” Please do not take this in a literal sense as an excuse to harm someone. I do not advocate violence. I sometimes say things thatContinue reading “How I Judge Forgiveness and Unforgiveness (Clarification)”

Future Faking from a Christian Perspective

Future faking is a term found in the narcissistic abuse community, and this term means exactly what it sounds like. Future faking is the act of promising something in the future, but without any real intent or sincere effort towards keeping that promise. Future faking can take many forms, but it always presents a futureContinue reading “Future Faking from a Christian Perspective”

The Whole Need Not a Physician

This life can be so damaging, and even the most desirable life can leave us scarred and wounded. We live in a fallen world of faulty human beings, and no one is guiltless. We have all hurt someone. We have all done things that we regret, and very often the damage we inflict onto othersContinue reading “The Whole Need Not a Physician”

Confessions of a Wicked and Slothful Servant

I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I was nine years old, if I remember correctly. I base this timing off the bible that I was given soon afterward, which was dated in December of 1996. Although I’m fuzzy on some details, because I was just a kid and did not pay attentionContinue reading “Confessions of a Wicked and Slothful Servant”

Considering Proverbs 10:3-5

3 The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry,    but he thwarts the craving of the wicked. 4 Lazy hands make for poverty,    but diligent hands bring wealth. 5 He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son,    but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son. When considering the above passages from a Christian perspective, I see two interpretations:Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:3-5”

Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains (Complete Series)

Faith is fundamental for any Christian. Our salvation hinges on faith, and yet I wonder how much we truly understand what a “faith-based” life really means.

Jesus tells us that even faith as aContinue reading “Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains (Complete Series)”
