OK, I'm not doing this to start a theological debate, doctrinal fight, nor a "Roman Catholic" versus "Protestant" argument. It really is just a question: "Where did the concept of the 'Apostolic Age' come from?" I've had the mandatory seminary classes on church history, and I know the traditional thought about this [...]
What is the best and most perfect image for this Season of Christmas? Let's look at a few of those images. The Christmas Tree. Now that's what ought to speak into the hearts of people. Right? For many, it's all about "The Tree"! The Christmas Lights. Ah, there's nothing like loading up family and friends [...]
Probably my shortest blog, but a message that is unfinished in me and I long for the day when this prayer has perfected the work in me. It came to me, and I know it is from The Holy Spirit, as I was doing my morning stroll around the yard and praying. I want to [...]
Here lately I've gone back to some of the great classics when it comes to a solid understanding about the nature of God's Kingdom. And one of those great teachers from the past is A.W. Tozer. Yesterday this one really grabbed me and I thought, "Wow! So simple but even more powerfully true! Why can't [...]
Pray tell, what good is a yo-yo without string? I mean, really? What's its purpose? Maybe it will make for a good late, late night infomercial? "That's right folks, a stringless yo-yo. It's available in 4 stunning colors and for a limited time you can get it for only 4 easy payments of $16.43, plus [...]
For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven...A time to be quiet and a time to speak. (Ecclesiastes 3:1 & 7 N.L.T.) I’ve been in this time of blog silence. For the past 2 months, with a couple of exceptions, I have avoided this blog and even reading a lot [...]
Let's continue on from yesterday. I ended with the truth that God will bring you back to the place He wants you to be, and He will forgive those sins. Period. They become part of the past, and there are some things your past sin doesn't change. Today, we're going to look at three of [...]
As many have read and heard me say so many times, somehow the Body of Christ has got off track in a big way. We have change the Message of Jesus from The Kingdom of God to the Kingdom of the Church. Don’t get me wrong, the Church has had an interesting narrative that has [...]
We have always heard it said, "Make good choices." But this axiom may not be one we want to use to model our life. Am I suggesting we make "bad choices"? Not at all, but what if it looks like both choices are good? The choices we make today will have an impact on us; [...]
Earlier this week I had this thought in the above picture. Call it inspiration, perspiration, desperation, or exasperation--I simply could not shake this thought. So I made me a jpg and posted in on my FB page hoping it would go away. And I still cannot shake this thought. So here this left-handed, right-brained Kingdom [...]
21-25 With that they were on their way. They scouted out the land from the Wilderness of Zin as far as Rehob toward Lebo Hamath. Their route went through the Negev Desert to the town of Hebron. Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, descendants of the giant Anak, lived there. Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan [...]
Here’s another “Wild” blog that inspires and challenges me. How would you, how DO YOU, share the story of Jesus with others? With legalism and its rules? If you have chosen the rules and rituals to tell the story of Jesus, haven’t you ever wondered why we in the good old U.S.A. are living in this Post-Christian Culture and why mainline, established tribes (i.e. denominations) are in decline? Come on folks, get your act together! Let’s change our core, our heart, from centuries of traditions back to what it should be: The Love Of God Perfectly Expressed In Jesus! And remember, love God with all your heart, love others the way HE loves you, and make sure all the glory goes to HIM!
What if you only had ten minutes to show a group of people on a remote island everything they needed to know in order to grow into a vibrant Christian community, and you could only give them four Bible verses (they have no Bibles)? What would you share with them? To keep it simple, we’ll assume these islanders have heard about Jesus and a few popular Bible stories.
