Why Bible?

So, we’re supposed to, suggested to study the 66 books of the Bible, Old and New Testaments. Why is that? If you’re like me, a bit of a rebel you may feel yourself tensing up at the suggestion. “Who, me, why?!” Well for a lot of reasons, let me share. Firstly and foremost, the HolyContinue reading “Why Bible?”

The face of sins reward

I’ve always been pretty stubborn. Perhaps you can associate. I always had to find out for myself, take “the hard road.” If someone suggests something i listen and go about my way. If I’m ordered to do something i immediately rebel. As a result of this hard-heartedness you see, is my rather chaotic life. I’mContinue reading “The face of sins reward”

Rebel with a cause

Let’s be rebels, you and I! Let’s throw off the restraints of society: it’s cultural and religious expectations, customs, opinions and norms. Let’s rebel! Our society is obsessed with rebels: movies, television, music, art, politics, etc. No I’m not talking about worldly rebellion. I’m not telling you to stop vaccinating your kids, to be vegan,Continue reading “Rebel with a cause”

Maybe it’s Maybelline

We all (those old enough that is) remember the 90’s commercial for Maybelline beauty products “maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline.” Yes, Evan, we remember, so what? I’m glad you asked! You see, in society it is commonly argued that homosexuality isn’t a moral issue as those individuals who partake in the gayContinue reading “Maybe it’s Maybelline”

Freedom

The truth is I failed you. I failed myself, my mom, my dad, and most of all my God. I’m cool, but I have a dark side I’m told I’m chased by something I can’t quite explain. I know not its purpose or even its name. A demon of sorts to abuse and destroy. TheContinue reading “Freedom”

Reminisces of an idolater

In reminiscing about my past, trying to make sense of the blatant contractions, I’ve come to realize a hard truth. Let me start at the beginning. I was raised in a new age family. My dad did psychic readings for money. I was indifferent to religion. This changed however when I met J. Her familyContinue reading “Reminisces of an idolater”

Tools for our journey

As believers, it’s hard to find good solid, biblical resources for personal study, growth, and encouragement. In today’s day-and-age false teaching and apostate beliefs are rampant in society…discernment is a must! I have found in my walk with the Lord a number of really excellent resources that have aided in personal study and growth whichContinue reading “Tools for our journey”

Sharpening the sword of the spirit

“Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit–which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6:17) As believers we know the power, importance, and authority of the scriptures. We cannot and should not neglect the reading of the Bible and our memorization of it. From the moment we come to faith in theContinue reading “Sharpening the sword of the spirit”

Did God really say…

As believers, our adversary the devil has had a long time to master his craft. Just as in the garden when he made Eve question God’s word, “did God really say you can’t eat from any tree in the garden?” (Genesis 3:1) He misrepresented God’s word, focused upon a want and a “nagging rule,” andContinue reading “Did God really say…”
