Mental Hording
Saturday, July 19th, 2014 6:57pm

Anyone whose known me for any length of time knows I love a good auction, bargain, garage sale, or other really good discount.  In fact, if it wasn't for the fact that money is tight, I would probably be at more auctions than I am, not to buy things most times, but just to be there, to enjoy th ...

Why Test Us If God Knows All?
Sunday, July 6th, 2014 1:57am

One of the things I've been pondering of late is why God tells us to do something, and then "tests us to see what we'll do."  If God knows everything what purpose does His testing have?  He already knows what we'll do before we do it.  So what's the purpose of our testing? Well, let's ... View More

 
The Wasted Tribute
Saturday, June 28th, 2014 12:05pm

During my bible study this morning I ran across an interesting group of verses in Romans 13, namely verses 1-7.  It talks about respecting the powers that are over you, the government, the state and so on.  You are to respect them and pay whatever tribute they ask of you, no matter what it ...

My Way or the Trust Way?
Wednesday, June 25th, 2014 12:39pm

One of the biggest issues in Christendom today is trust.  We fail to trust God, and we fail to trust others.  I admit that not everyone deserves our absolute trust.  In fact I'd suggest that no human deserves our absolute, unquestioned trust.  However, God does.  He never fa ... View More

What Does It Mean to Judge Others?
Tuesday, June 17th, 2014 9:00am

One of the biggest billy clubs used against Christians the world around is "Doesn't the bible say not to judge?  So why are you judging me?"  It's used to shut us up and make us go away because our lives and our testament prick their consciences and they don't like that.  But what doe ...

Why I'm Unplugging From Facebook
Sunday, June 8th, 2014 9:01pm

One of the things I've been seeing more of lately is how much Facebook is disintegrating.  People seem to be leaving in droves, the younger generation especially, and not coming back.  In fact, I once had a friend list of over 350 people, most of whom were active.  I'm down to 85 frie ...
