Seedtime

Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:   1 Co 15:36 This verse seems to be simple enough but in our culture I am afraid some of us have fallen for the idea that we can live as we are and somehow be living a yielded life. When the writer made …

Dark to Light

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shone in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  John 1:4-5      Imagine being in a place where there is no light. I mean not just late at night but a darkness which is absent of any light. If you …

What Is Love?

I have noticed that many have a very different idea of what the definition of “love” is.  It seems that for some this word is defined by unconditional acceptance.  This is a very dangerous misconception and has no real foundation in scripture or life. Many will point to what is stated in John 3:17 in …

Why Reform

     Well it has been a long time coming but I am finally ready to go on with this blogging thing. Today I would like to discuss reform. Not just reform in the way that the Church holds service but reform of every part of how the Church works in each of us.  The …

Now What?

I am as unhappy as anyone about the current politics but I believe this is the bottom line and would never support violent acts. Remember Jesus and the ear of the high priest’s servant, Malchus. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love …

Whom Shall I Fear?

Whom Shall I Fear? NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM GOD’S LOVE!! What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? …

World View

The “World” view on human history is that man began as an animal or “neanderthal” being who was not responsible for his actions. This animal like creature wandered the world hiding and killing what he could with rocks or sticks, mating with who or whatever he could overcome and surviving by chance. The “Godly” view …
