Standing for Something, or You Are Not Alone

Do you ever feel like you're just drifting along and when you finally speak up about what you see happening in the world those around you tell you to stop overreacting, or to be more tolerant?  If so, I want you to know that you are not alone.

Blogging Thru Song: Breaking Benjamin- Ashes of Eden

It's been a while since we've had a song post, so here you go.  There's not much for me to add to this one.  There have been times when I turned away from God to follow my own desires, a tale common within Western Christianity.  Allow this song to be an encouragement to you, especially… Continue reading Blogging Thru Song: Breaking Benjamin- Ashes of Eden

A Time for Repentance, or a Note to the Body

You've heard it a thousand, thousand times.  "We are all called to repentance." The pastor says.  "Repent!  For the kingdom of God is at hand!" The missionary quotes.  "Repent!  Turn away from your wickedness before it's too late!" Proclaims the street corner soapbox preacher. My definition of repentance is the action of ceasing one's sin,… Continue reading A Time for Repentance, or a Note to the Body

Q&A: What about Gluttony?

A friend of mine posed the question a while back: "Why is gluttony so overlooked and under-preached from the pulpit?" - Jonathan; Columbia, SC A fair question, even if it does hit a little close to home for this author.  But what is gluttony, really?  Is it actually a sin?  Either way, why don't pastors… Continue reading Q&A: What about Gluttony?

A Comment on Bruce Jenner

I see… Continue reading A Comment on Bruce Jenner

Video: A Thought on 21st Century Proselytizing

A Game of Thrones, or Pledging Allegiance to…

I'm not a fan of the Game of Thrones series.  I've never watched an episode but I read a little bit of the book and it wasn't really my cup of tea.  Given that I'm not a fan, I think most people have heard about the outrage over the shows depicting the rape of one… Continue reading A Game of Thrones, or Pledging Allegiance to…

Blogging Through Song: Life After Death & Taxes

A dear friend of mine named Vernon Bauer, a retired missionary to Colombia and a masterful theologian, preached a sermon once on the benefit of music in our daily Christian walk.  Needless to say, I was intrigued.  The point that he made was to plant a song in your mind to call upon when temptation… Continue reading Blogging Through Song: Life After Death & Taxes

Video Post: Warnings from a Modern Day Prophet

As Christians, we use the term prophet cautiously because of how many false prophets there are and have been.  Prophecy is not necessarily about predicting the future, but about speaking from God to national leaders and to the people of the nations.  In my opinion, if you have to label yourself a prophet then you… Continue reading Video Post: Warnings from a Modern Day Prophet
