Think About It

“Why me, Lord?”

“Why me, Lord?” In my social interactions with “non-Christians,” one of the things I’ve noticed  to their credit is that they aren’t as much the “why me” types when life’s “stuff”happens. And they certainly don’t blame God because He’s not even on their radar. Quite often they are more accepting of misfortune than believers are. They aren’t as concerned or perplexed as to why…

I recently completed a personal evaluation that dealt with the value I place on certain activities such as marriage/romance, work, spiritual development, entertainment , friendships (and more) as well as how many hours a week I estimate I spend on them. I don’t recommend you do that. In fact, when I took the survey a few days later,…

“Preaching to the choir…”

“Preaching to the choir” means expressing an opinion or argument to people who already agree with you.  I’m not betting on that. While I know this article pretty much has an audience of “church goin’ folk” who have heard similar content before and may even believe at least in the scripture references, believin’ just ain’t quite followin’ if you know…

Who really killed Jesus?

Who really killed Jesus? Who caused Jesus to die?  Many times this question has been asked. Many times I’ve heard the answer “It was the Jews” or “It was the Romans.” In a sense that is true, insofar as the Jews and Romans of that time were representative of all human beings lost in sin and out of touch with God. But in…

“We live by feelings, not by faith.”

“We live by feelings, not by faith.” That quote is a distortion of how we are exhorted to live in 2 Cor. 5:7, but for all of us sometimes, and for some of us all too often, this depicts how we navigate life.  Scripture nudges us to live the adventurous and sometimes downright scary life, the life…

Our God is absolutely more astounding than we can fathom!

Our God is absolutely more astounding than we can fathom! Whether we are now living or have lived our lives with indifference to God or even in active rebellion, God is still fully committed to resolution with all violators. Even if this other party (the human race) is completely guilty and doesn’t even care to be…

Do non-Christians make you angry and upset you?

Do non-Christians make you angry and upset you? Which kind? Any kind? Atheists? Buddhists? Jews? Wiccans? Muslims? New-Agers? Garden variety pagans? You name it. Are you upset, even angry at or about people who don’t share your faith perspective or “come to Jesus?”? Where do we get that? It doesn’t appear that it was Jesus’ method to provoke…

You’ve got the seed, so sling it!

You’ve got the seed, so sling it! You never know what God will do with it, but you can pretty well determine the outcome if there is no seed sown. Let me share with you a very personal story which more than made my day yesterday. It involves a guy who I spent considerable time with but…

Did the disciples take notes?

Did the disciples take notes? Somehow, they sure were able to remember a lot of details from the accounts of their lives with Jesus, the adventures they experienced with Him and the words He preached. When you think about it, and I don’t want to discount the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in any way, these…
