We're in Leviticus with my church bible plan. It's the book many dread reading. I get that, but there are some very interesting things in it as well. For example, God says a couple of times, "You shall be holy as I am holy." What does that mean? I'm not going to attempt to plumb … Continue reading You Shall Be Holy
It was my intention to start today's post by saying that Psalm 37 is one of my favorite landing places in the bible. I didn't because I have so many that are my "favorites" that this no longer is an adequate descriptor. Maybe I should say Psalm 37 is one of my favorite, favorite of … Continue reading My New Favorite Verse
It happened again! I had another post yanked of a certain social media platform. It originally was approved, but somebody changed his/her/them/their/it's mind. Judge for yourself here. Feel free to comment. Let me tell you how it works. I have a small following, about 1,400 subscribers, the majority of which are through social media. Like … Continue reading It Happened Again!
"Did you see that?" How many times to you suppose the Israelites said that? As many of you know, I attend a home church. I know, that idea is weird to many of you, but I have come to really like it. I suppose it would be similar to home-schooling your children - a curious … Continue reading Did You See That?
We see it happening right before our eyes. Free speech used to be a foundational stone of our country. While we certainly didn't like what many said, we supported their right to say it. Times have changed. We are now seeing social media blocking posts. Some sites have been completely banned because they somehow violated … Continue reading Preparing for Censorship
The final report on Ravi Zacharias was released this week. You can read the RZIM open letter here as well as the independent investigator's report at the end of that letter. Wow. I wrote on the intermediate statement in my December 24, 2020 post. Ravi Zacharais was a titan in Christian apologetics. Who wasn't glad … Continue reading More on Ravi Zacharias.
It's Valentine's Day Weekend! Do you have anything special planned for anyone? I rarely re-print my posts, but the one from last year is fitting. Enjoy! “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,that whoever believes in him should not perishbut have eternal life.”John 3:16 I like Valentine’s Day. Some may … Continue reading Valentine’s Day Weekend!
Let's talk about the Sabbath Rest. No need to talk much. Scripture speaks for itself. 8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, … Continue reading Getting Prepared for Sabbath Rest.
What did you think about Wednesday's post? Is dieting really a false religion? Let's explore that some more. Here's how Bible Gateway defines false religion: The worship of anything that is not God, including any form of religion that fails to do justice to the glory and majesty of God. Scripture criticizes both the practices … Continue reading Is Dieting Really a False Religion?
Last night my eyes were opened to a portion of scripture that I had not noticed before. Who opened them? God did. My eyes are still blind, mind you, and I see only because he has given me sight. Little by little, he shows me more and more. I have found that dieting is another … Continue reading Dieting: Another False Religion.
