Crash Dummies

Sometimes I feel like Mel Gibson in Conspiracy Theory.  I look around and see what the enemy has been doing and I am trying to prove the conspiracy and people look at me like I am crazy or something.  As an example the religious obsession with sin has so distorted our understanding of what Jesus…

Divine Days

Sometimes you have one of those divine days.  You look back and see God’s fingers all over it.  Of course He is there all the time, but I feel like He gives us opportunities to grow.  I don’t understand the spiritual conversations or rules governing encounters or any of that stuff.  We have examples like…

Faith Test

I was thinking about why there seems to be all this schizophrenic, bi-polar, old-versus-new reasoning when it comes to understanding the nature of God.  To every born-again child of God, it is clear that Jesus is love and is God’s expression of love.  Jesus came to reveal the true nature of God to us. When we…

Spoons and Steaks

Gal 2:16 yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will…

It is time for freedom

Rom 3:20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. (ESVST) The law cannot make anyone right with God. We need to understand that He is right with us period. All he wants is our love. All he wants is…
