Thoughts on judging after…

Luke 6:37  “Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. My wife and I just completed watching “The Keeper”, and can be found on Netflix.  If you haven’t seen it yet I warn you that you may tempted to judge, just as…

Wisdom

I’ve kind of hit (no pun intended) on this before.  Followers of Christ are not very popular at times…even with other Christians.   I’ve commented on this before, but I know that many do not want to know what the truth is…it makes them uncomfortable and cuts into their freedoms.  But that’s not what this is about…

Shortened schedule

Hi everyone.  I’ve had a few ask me how I can come up with a post everyday.  I don’t know, but it’s hard.  I try not to repeat myself and honestly try to post something meaningful as opposed to rambling on.  I don’t want to force anything.  I just want to share my inspirations…those of God….

Oaths

How many people did God make a covenant with?  Let’s see:  Adam, Jacob, Moses, Abraham, Isaac, David, Solomon…just to name a few.  How well did they keep His covenants?  Ahhh, how well do we keep ours? Leviticus 26:12  Ever present in your midst, I will be your God, and you will be my people; Everything about…

The Truth and nothing but the truth!

Have you seen the movie, “A Few Good Men” with Jack Nicholson? In the movie, while being grilled by Tom Cruise’s character, he shouts from the witness stand, “You can’t handle the truth.”  How true!! I’ve touched on truth about 100 times so far, yet it is so important to keep in our minds that…

Hope

1 Corinthians 13:13   So faith, hope, love remain, these three but the greatest of these is love. I had been curious for a long time just why Paul told us that love is the greatest.  I would ask myself questions like, “Shouldn’t faith come first? ”  I accepted it just the way Paul wrote it….

So, am I speaking the truth?

I’ve repeated this a number of time.  I have to be really careful not to “feel” what a bible verse meant, but speak the truth…God’s intentions.  Fortunately I’m not intellectual enough to write with authority.  That’s where pride could rear it’s ugly head. It is extremely important for me to stay on tract.  It’s like…

What is a ‘mere’ Christian?

When  I’ve had discussions with Christians many times where I explained that what they believe is not part of God’s intentions.  I used top be on the receiving end of of those discussions too…when I was merely a Christian.  I thought I loved God with all of my heart, just like I am commanded to do, but…

How far should we go?

We know about Jesus granting authority to all of his apostles and disciples.  We know that Jesus told them that they had the authority to preach, teach, heal, cast out demons and forgive.  Mark 3:15  giving them authority to cast out demons. Paul (not an apostle), once converted, assumed his authority.  2 Corinthians 10:8  I…

My special time with God

On Saturday mornings I get up at 3:30am and go to adoration at St. Matthew…from 4-5.  I find that it has become my special time.  Even though one or two others might be there, I still consider it my alone time.  (If there are any non-Catholics reading this and not sure what I mean by…
