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…

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.…

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,…

Re-Framing

“Christianity is not a religion; it is the announcement of the end of religion. Religion consists of all the things (believing, behaving, worshiping, sacrificing) the human race has ever thought it had to do to get right with God.” (Robert Capon) In these last few posts I’ve tried to contrast a before and after kind…

God + you = joy

Our union with Jesus is a great mystery.  It includes the personal and global.  It is singular and corporate.  It is micro and macro.  It includes all of humanity and each individual human.  It happened 2000 years ago and is realized in each of us in the present when we “believe” what He has done.   Still…

Disease not Damnation

When you begin to see the Gospel as Good News you begin to see differently.  Maybe you are thinking “well of course I see the Gospel as Good News since it is ‘good news’ by definition.”  I can say I knew OF the Gospel since I can remember but didn’t KNOW in person the Gospel…

Mediation with a purpose

In the last few posts I’ve hopefully revealed a mediator or advocate or intercessor in a new light.  In Mandatory Mediation I tried to show how the Holy Spirit is interceding for us in prayer.  In Mediation from Above I hope you see how much God is really for you and in no way is…

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…

“Pick The Red One” again

In “Pick The Red One” I told you a story about spread sheets and cars and Jesus. Go take a look for yourself. After some comments from readers I want to revisit the story briefly. When Jesus said to pick the red one, there was not a red car on the spread sheet. There were…

Separated or hiding?

I got a form letter in the mail two days ago. God’s timing is funny. Actually it is probably the enemy making a play to keep us down yet again. Still it is funny that this flyer would show up right in the middle of this series of posts. We have been looking at the…
