The Fiya of Hell! or not?

Shocking title, right?  Depending on where you came from and what kind of religious experience you may have endured, this phrase “fire of hell” can really get you going, or not.  The more I come to know Jesus the more I “giggle” at the misuse of this concept.  The more I am aware by the…

Living from the inside out

John 14:18-20 “I will not leave you orphaned. I’m coming back. In just a little while the world will no longer see me, but you’re going to see me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive. At that moment you will know absolutely that I’m in my Father, and you’re in me,…

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…

Holēs en pantes (all in all)

The grammar may not be right but the concept is. The title may have your brain rooting around the English for an image that was unintended, but even that image may provide some insight. Holes in panties (or underwear for the boys). Nobody sees them but you know about them. The cliché is “make sure…

Mess Makers – Unbelief

What has always been at the root of the demise of mankind is our fallen image of God. The knowledge of good and evil made us so self-aware and self-centered that we couldn’t look past our shame to embrace the beauty and love of God. Our obsession with self had created a void of identity. Our…

Poles and Snakes

John 3:9 Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” 10 Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? 11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive…

Believe in the name of Jesus!

Matt 18:6 “And everyone who commits an offense against one of these little ones who believe in me, it were profitable for him that a donkey’s millstone would be hung around his neck and he be sunk in the depths of the sea.” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English) Jesus is the revelation of God.  The…

The truth will set you free

Help me in my unbelief.  That is what the man cried out when he wanted his son healed.  Here is a bit from that passage: Mark 9:22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23…

Paradigm Shift

Jesus didn’t die to save us FROM God. Just let that sink in for a second.  Maybe read it again.  Go ahead, it is OK to read it again. Do you know that the teaching of the western “church” since about 1000 AD and institutionalized in the reformation is that Jesus died to save us…

Mandatory Mediation

Have you ever been in a relationship where you “walked on eggshells?”  I’ve been in a few of those.  Actually I would argue that in my past some people probably thought of me that way.  I used to be pretty moody.  When you are moody and angry at life you will tend to have a…
