A Look at Postmodernism and How to Fight It

What is postmodernism? If you’re like I was before today, you might not be able to answer that question outright. Or, maybe you can. I’m falling way behind here, I know. Whether you can or cannot, we all recognize the ideas contained within postmodernism because they heavily influence our culture today. I have experienced itContinue reading “A Look at Postmodernism and How to Fight It”

Seek and You Will Find

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will heContinue reading “Seek and You Will Find”

Considering Proverbs 11:13

A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. Several ideas come to mind for me when I read this proverb. The first is perhaps the most obvious. When someone entrusts a person with confidential information, a faithful person will keep the information hidden while an unfaithful person willContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:13”

“He who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” Who is he?

2 Thessalonians 2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.Continue reading ““He who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” Who is he?”

Exercising in Truth

Originally Posted at KindlingTruth by Amanda on April, 23 2018 It can be easy for us to become carried away with things pertaining to the “end times.” Sometimes it’s just a matter of interest.

Some Thoughts on Dealing with our Inner Accuser

Insecurity and pride seem to be two sides of the same coin, and I think a lot of insecurity stems from inner voices of criticism, or maybe more adequality put, inner voices of accusation. One of the greatest hindrances for me when it comes to writing about Christian topics as I see them has beenContinue reading “Some Thoughts on Dealing with our Inner Accuser”

Considering Proverbs 10:19-21

19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. 20 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. I like the contrast between verse 19Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:19-21”

Oversharing?

Do I overshare my own experiences? Do I talk about myself too much? Does this distract from Jesus? Maybe at times. Am I self-serving and vain in so doing? Maybe. Until I started sharing my experiences through Christian article writing, I was a very reserved person. No one really knew me. My family did notContinue reading “Oversharing?”

Blessed are the Meek

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. – Matthew 5:5 As Christians, we are made joint heirs with Jesus Christ. He will return one day, and as He has promised, “He that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame and am sat downContinue reading “Blessed are the Meek”

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”
