The Schism Within

John 14:20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. (ESV) What happened in the Garden of Eden was tragic in so many ways.  The root was the fruit. The consumption of the fruit of the tree so messed up our psyche that…

Happy Birthday, 2 Years Old!

This month Alancetotheheart is two years old.  Wow what a journey it has been.  342 posts later I can say much has changed and much has stayed the same.  That sounds pretty cliché I know but let me see if I can explain. When I started writing I felt like the “great defender of God’s…

Jesus Evangelism Part II

Jesus didn’t die to pay for our sin, He came to take it away.  Sin is a product of a fallen nature and a fallen world.  It is like a disease that needs a cure.  It isn’t something that is forgiven day after day with confession after confession.  That is just another bondage to another…

What is Jesus Evangelism?

What does Jesus evangelism look like?  The corporate “formula” for Jesus was to preach about the Kingdom of Heaven (liberation from the Kingdom of the devil, death, law and sin). What was the “formula” for Jesus to the individual?  Want to take a look?  Please read with caution it may stretch your understanding. In most western…
