Being in the church body doesn’t mean ministry must be confined to 4 walls

God does some of his best work outside the four walls of the church building. There are many who are caught up in the thinking that if God has called them to do something, they have to fulfill it within the confines of a particular congregation or denomination. That may be true in some cases,… Continue reading Being in the church body doesn’t mean ministry must be confined to 4 walls

Scientists: Earth’s water older than Sun. Big Bang theory bites the dust

Over 2 years ago, I did this post on several things the Big Bang theory contradicts the Bible on. And the very first point I made was that the Big Bang claims the Sun came before the Earth while the Bible says the Sun wasn't created until the fourth day. Now a team of scientists… Continue reading Scientists: Earth’s water older than Sun. Big Bang theory bites the dust

The defiled and dishonorable will be dismissed from God’s presence

Heaven is a gated community, in case you didn't know. There are 12 gates for entering but only those who have come by the way, the truth, and the life will be admitted. It doesn't mean those who are admitted are inherently superior to others, it just means they at one point recognized their iniquity… Continue reading The defiled and dishonorable will be dismissed from God’s presence

Called to be nonconformists for God

"That's how I was raised." "The streets is all I know." "I was abused as a child." "My father wasn't in the home." "My parents did drugs." "Gangs run my neighborhood." How many times have we heard these and similar statements as excuses for bad behavior? Are these excuses acceptable? Are we all just doomed… Continue reading Called to be nonconformists for God

Ancient Assyrian Empire documents back up the Bible

The British Museum holds a treasure trove of ancient documents that back up what the Bible says. Although Christians don't necessarily need these documents as confirmation for the accuracy and truth we find in the Bible, they do provide a good defense when uninformed or deceptive secularists take swipes at the Bible, such as the… Continue reading Ancient Assyrian Empire documents back up the Bible

Do we need to plead Christ’s blood by which we’re freed?

When Jesus' physical blood was physically shed for us 2,000 years ago, it had powerful spiritual results for believers. As believers, it is easy to get caught up in religious traditions and catch-phrases, especially when prominent Christian leaders use them. One such popular phrase is "plead[ing] the blood of Jesus." It is often used like… Continue reading Do we need to plead Christ’s blood by which we’re freed?

Can generational curses hinder a Christian’s growth or deliverance?

Generational curses tend to be a popular topic in Pentecostal/charismatic circles. It's the idea that, based on Mosaic law, God will curse up to the third or fourth generation of descendants of people involved in ungodly things like paganism. I just read an article at the Charisma News website by Chester and Betsy Kylstra entitled,… Continue reading Can generational curses hinder a Christian’s growth or deliverance?

A fresh look at Paul’s thorn in the flesh

Much speculation has been made about Paul's thorn in the flesh that he discusses in 2 Corinthians 12:6-10. Some have said it was a physical ailment (including me at times in the past) and in the past two days, a commenter came to this blog to use Paul's thorn as an excuse, in my opinion,… Continue reading A fresh look at Paul’s thorn in the flesh
