Prosperity “gospel”

“Hey did you hear Joel Osteen, he has such an uplifting message?!” No I did not, no. Yeah, yeah, God wants me to be “happy, wealthy, healthy, and prosperous.” He and other ministers of the flesh proclaim such. “Wait, Evan, aren’t you being rather critical, rather unkind?” No, and here’s why. Our God is anContinue reading “Prosperity “gospel””

Clarification

I feel the need to clarify something. I write a lot about repentace, sin, etc. I do not believe nor confess that salvation is by grace and…and…and anything! We are called to repent, a change of mind regarding our sin resulting in a change of behavior by God’s power, motivated, driven, and fueled by trustContinue reading “Clarification”

For crown and country!

So why as believers are we obedient? Why do we forsake the ways of the world in acceptance of God’s will?

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”

Our answer to these questions results in salvation correctly taught and received, or damnation and apostacism. The importanceContinue reading “Infusion negative”

Vanity of vanities

In our society it seems there is an epidemic of mental illness. Hopelessness and despair runs rampant….why is it so, you may ask…I know I surely do. Perhaps is not an epidemic of mental illness. perhaps it’s a legitimate reaction to the futility, hardship and perplexing nature of our lives as humans? Look at itContinue reading “Vanity of vanities”

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”
