Making Time

Moving to a new home, or changing work, or just adding or removing responsibilities tends to to work us against any patterns we've developed, and sometimes make us re-evelate what we do with our time.  Since I'm doing that myself, I thought I'd add...

anonuman has dug himself/herself a bit of a hole, a hole and I look forward to seeing how he tries to get out of it. He has in this post; http://country-girl.thoughts.com/posts/help-from-above made claim to know what god has said to Hitler in...

SIMPLICITY OF CHRISTENDOM

The simplicity of Christendom is not in quoting of scriptures, or in pursuit of one’s self-righteousness, or is it in celebration of religious ceremonies, neither is it in performing special rites or is it in regularly participation of church...

Are you under "attack"? Rejoice!

If you're a Christian who is under attack, take heart!  You are a threat to the enemies of God and that means you are doing what is right!  You are doing what the Lord is asking you to do and did you know that you are the "apple of his eye"?  Psalm...

Not of This World

During our lifetime on earth, we will experience many trials and hardships, quite simply, the world hates Christians.  John 17, starting at verse 11 speaks of Jesus asking God to guard us and to keep us as one (in unity)  and as the Godhead is one. ...

Brieffie

En passant ... I've just had an interesting discussion with some nice folks on a 'religious' forum. I responded to a question "Do Atheists know what they sound like?" and stirred up a wee hornets nest. As ever there's no appeal to reason, neither...

The Divinity of Christ

            Central to the message of the Bible is the message of the redeemer of the world.  From the very beginning of the sin of man, God has given us that great promise of deliverance and yet from the very promise of the Savior of the world coming...

Poems to Inspire 1

NO ONE FIGHTS ANYMORE All the fighters have passed away. No one mixes it up anymore. No one braves the heat of battle, and like the snorting steed, charges to the fray. Men-of-war snooze easily, mothballed, as frigates flee, ...

When Bad Christians Happen to Good People

The title is a winner! It grabbed me right away and I knew it was going to pack a punch and it did, right in my nose! Author Dave Burchett lays it on the line and calls "Christians" to action.   Many times, as Christians , we forget the grace...

CHRISTIANS & CLUBBING

Often time I have seen or I’m being asked this question; “is it right for Christians to go to night clubs?” This question is idiosyncratic and ridiculous, the mere sound of it is hypocrisy and self-deceiving in nature, and it is a proof of ones carnal...

Come Away.

i'm so excited! this weekend i'm getting to get away from all the stress of home, work, boyfriend, etc, and going to the Ramp in Alabama. anyone ever heard of it? or been there? i truly believe that i'm going to encounter God in a new way, and...

THY NAME

“And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: …” (Genesis 32: 28). Many don’t know the importance of names in their lives that is why they can name their children carelessly or give themselves demeaning and nonsensical...

Voting.

as a young adult, i can say i've banned with all the younger people in the US and their melancholy attitude towards elections and voting. i've always felt like no matter who was in office, they wouldn't do the job justice, and since i was just one...

Blogging.

don't get me wrong, i love blogging. i'm a 21 years young girl full of nothing but hot air, and love letting it out! but understand that venting on here and reading tens - thousands of different peoples' different opinions won't make your...

DAILY BREAD

“Give us day by day our daily bread.” (Luke 11: 3, Matthew 6: 11). A lion does not eat already dead or stale meat, it goes for fresh meat that is why it does not die of sicknesses or diseases, it mostly dies of hunger, so also we as sons of God...

What will he look like?

What do you think Jesus will look like when he comes back?  White? Middle eastern?  or just about anyone here now like myself or would he come as a woman to steal from you?  What I believe is he is part of us all and in that respect is still human but...

The Trinity

            Looking at the doctrine of the Trinity is not a merely academic exercise.  It is not merely for the education or edification of the saint that God makes His triune nature clearly revealed in the Scriptures, but it is fundamental to the...

Jesus isn't God Yet he only sits at the right hand of the Father

Jesus will be God when he returns and take over for Satan who is God now here on Earth.  Jesus sits at the right hand of Father who is the supreme diety.  All we have to do is love one another until he returns and don't pay homage to those who would...
