  • PESTER GOD CONTINUALLY FOR THE THINGS HE HAS ALREADY SAID WE HAVE

    I know what you are about to read is controversial, and may shake the foundation of what you have been practicing for many years. However, the issue of prayer must be discussed and properly discerned. The concept has become a huge rolling snowball of religious nonsense which is so far removed from what Jesus was […]

  • REJECTS

    The Parables of Jesus. Sometimes they read like a horror story. How about the Kingdom of Heaven? It seems like there could be some “issues”.   Matt. 22:2-3 – “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son (3) And sent his servants to summon those who had been […]

  • AS GOOD AS DEAD

    I know I was. As good as dead that is. All those years of not knowing Jesus resulted in a human shipwreck. Not just physically from the ravages of drug abuse, but more so from the actual root cause. Spiritual death. As good as dead. Had my body failed me completely I would have gone […]

  • WHEN YOU NEED “GREATER PEACE”

    There’s peace, calm, serenity, and the general sense of well being that we all need and crave. And then there comes a time when we need something bigger. Larger. Greater. We need a great peace. I sense that today. I sense it in what I see going on around me. I sense it in myself. […]

  • $21.60

    Judas is arguably one of the most hated figures in history. He betrayed the beloved Savior Jesus Christ.   Thirty pieces of silver in exchange for a friend. Silver for blood. Matthew 26:15 (AMP) – “And said, What are you willing to give me if I hand Him over to you? And they weighed out […]

  • CROSS STYLE

    Luke 9:23 (AMP)  – “And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example […]

  • RESOLVE TO BECOME

    Those who know me well understand that I am not a fan of making resolutions when it’s the popular time of the year to do that. New Years has become almost a pagan festival of change in behavior. People will resolve to lose weight, stop drinking, stop smoking, be a better anything one can become […]

  • TRUST ISSUES

    Trust. Where, and in whom, do we place it? It’s a fragile commodity within the human race. No honest and true relationship will last or flourish without it.   Not between husband and wife. Not between parents and children. Not between workers and supervision.   Not between Man and God.   The void left by […]

  • COMFORT FOOD

    Some foods are said to be “comfort food”. I have heard meat loaf described as being such a food. Also, macaroni and cheese.   I suppose for me it would be pizza. Or perhaps Chinese delivery. Yes, definitely Chinese. That could be dangerous. Finding yourself in a position where you feel you need to be […]

  • KNOW THIS AND UNDERSTAND

    What’s to know? You go though your day and you will say, “Thank you doctor”, or you may praise the bank manager for spinning you a loan. You might marvel at the taste of the pastry the local bakery has prepared for you. You will tip the waiter, the bag boy, and the person who […]
