“I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God; I equip you, though you do not know me,” Isaiah 45:5 Yesterday I posted about a Facebook post that I claim is errant, in fact deceptive and evil. Why? Because it made the claim that the Bible is inconsistent and … Continue reading 2020-07-02 Say What??? Continued.
“This is a hard saying, who can listen to it?” John 6:60 I saw a Facebook post that said this: • THE BIBLE IS CLEAR: Moabites are bad. They were not to be allowed to dwell among God’s people (Dt. 23). BUT THEN comes the story of “Ruth the Moabite,” which challenges the prejudice against … Continue reading 2020-07-02 Say What????
As it is said, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” Hebrews 3:15 Being a small business owner has its advantages. For one, I am able to share the gospel with my customers. I couldn’t freely do that when I worked at someone else’s business. Today, I … Continue reading 2020-07-01 Today…
“Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.” Psalm 146:3 I had an interesting conversation with a young adult yesterday about the state of the world. I think I did a pretty good job keeping my opinions to myself or at least keep from shutting the … Continue reading 2020-06-29 Patience Is A Virtue.
“Have nothing to do with foolish controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.” 2 Timothy 2:23 I don’t think the tearing down of statues is going away any time soon. The latest in the crosshairs is with images of Jesus. The controversy? That most familiar objects depict Jesus as white. In one sense, I get … Continue reading 2020-06-26 MY Jesus isn’t THAT color!
“And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.” Romans 1:28 I know, I know. You’re thinking, “Here we go again. Can’t this guy ever talk about nice things?” I do, but I also talk about things that … Continue reading 2020-06-25 Just Look At This World.
“All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.” Psalm 98:3 There are a lot of verses that a person reads that simply get skipped over. Like this one. It is part of a short psalm of praise to God, yet there is clearly a message of judgment as well as … Continue reading 2020-06-24 Doctrine Isn’t Important?
“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” John 20:29b Just over a week ago was the 13th anniversary of my salvation. That was a big day. My darkest day and also my brightest. It was the day I first believed. We see all sorts of Disney-type messages out there, encouraging us … Continue reading 2020-06-22 Why Me, Lord?
“Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.” Revelation 22:11 This is an interesting verse. It comes at the close of the last of the official instruction from the Holy Spirit. I’m still working through this whole concept of … Continue reading 2020-06-19 It’s All Or Nothing.
“For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law. Indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Romans 8:7-8 The bible says some pretty crazy stuff. Like this. This is crystal clear about the status of the unbeliever. S/he … Continue reading 2020-06-17 Arm in Arm?
