Cow Tipping

After the last post I felt maybe you needed a break from all the angry God talk since, of course, that g.o.d. isn’t real and it hurts your mind of Christ to imagine a Father who is actually a monster.  Wow there I go again.  So in this post how about we have some fun.…

Godly justice revisited

God made us to be in His family. That was His plan. When we fell, God declared “justice must be served.” No way, no how would God allow His plan of our union be thwarted by a deception or our stupidity and selfishness. “Absolutely not!” was His declaration the moment we turned and hid from…

Splinter #3

We’ve been in the splinter removal business for the last few posts.  I would encourage you to take a look at the past Splinter posts when you have a chance to get caught up. We often find ourselves believing lies about God that cause us to blame Him for all kinds of stuff He didn’t…

Knowing

When we begin to see the goodness of God our eyes are opened to a greater revelation of Him.  We see Jesus on the cross as more than an event.  We see God in Christ.  We see the nature of God expressed as a man.  We see how a loving God came to set us…

The Gate

Since the fall, our brains see through law.  When we ate from the wrong tree we took on a law way of thinking.  We thought in terms of lists.  In the original language, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was a tree that made us aware of what is good or bad…

Puffed up or edified?

God provided faith comes by hearing and accepting as we listen intently to the breathed utterance and loving narrative about Jesus (Rom 10:17 Lance Literal Translation). I’ve always been a left brain person. I love to figure things out. It is exciting when I have a thought or think about a problem differently and out…

Jesus Glasses

I once heard a story about Honda glasses.  This guy wanted to buy a Honda car.  He didn’t know much about them but had done a lot of research, asked around and test drove a few Honda cars.  Before he began his quest, he didn’t really notice very many Honda’s on the road.  Now they…

Rocks and sand

Do you ever wonder how something so simple can be so hard?  Why is it “believing what God has said” tend to be very place that we get stuck?  Don’t worry, you are in good company.  Peter had a tough time believing what God said.  Well in this case it was Jesus doing the talking,…
