“Mother Earth” Isn’t Angry.

God is. Thanks be to God, that the anger of God is not as the anger of Man. All things are under His full knowledge and control…even the so-called whims and rage of “Mother Earth.” He is not surprised by anything nor is He undermined by any plan that Man has in store. Neither isContinue reading ““Mother Earth” Isn’t Angry.”

Are you Concerned About “Overcoming?” You Aren’t Alone.

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.

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”

My Experience of Receiving the Holy Spirit

I know that the topic of receiving the Holy Spirit is one of contention among Christians, and I understand why. I don’t think we have to experience the same things, and to judge each other according to our experiences with the Holy Spirit leads to a lot of unnecessary accusations. I want to write moreContinue reading “My Experience of Receiving the Holy Spirit”
