The Believer’s Eternal Rewards – Lite (10 min)

It’s interesting to listen to people discuss what they value and watch the excitement on their faces.  I especially enjoy watching children unwrap presents with great anticipation.  Friends, 1st Corinthians 2:9-10 says (and I am paraphrasing) that eyes have not seen, nor ears heard, nor hearts dreamed of the great things that God has preparedContinue reading “The Believer’s Eternal Rewards – Lite (10 min)”

The Outcomes: Part 1 – Lite (35 min)

The 2nd chapter of Romans personalizes the reality of willful blindness in a “virtuous” person, and it ought to cause great introspection.  In this chapter, the word “you” is used 27 times within 12 out of a total of 29 verses.   That’s on average over 2 times per statement which is fairly confrontational.  It becomesContinue reading “The Outcomes: Part 1 – Lite (35 min)”

The Outcomes: Part 2 – Lite (20 min)

The 2nd chapter of Romans personalizes the reality of willful blindness in a “virtuous” person, and it ought to cause great introspection.  This is the 2nd half of my study which covers points 3 and 4 in my outline. Please refer to part 1 for the first 2 points on our eternal judgment. I’d likeContinue reading “The Outcomes: Part 2 – Lite (20 min)”

Freedom in Surrendering Accurate Accusations – Lite (15 -17 min)

Do people judge each other because of unforgiveness, ignorance, lovelessness, or entitlement? Are there several causes? Hmmm. I admit I have difficulty wanting to sit in a church where the preaching includes the world’s encroaching philosophies (undetected or at least embraced by its leadership). The intention of this blog is to help those who (1)Continue reading “Freedom in Surrendering Accurate Accusations – Lite (15 -17 min)”

Dress Code in Effect – Lite (22 min)

Why do we feel that everything is negotiable? When invited to a wedding, is the invited permitted to determine the date, time, venue, and nuptial garments? Certainly, those invited have a choice to determine whether they will attend, they make preparations to journey to the ceremonial site, and they make the effort to get there.  ButContinue reading “Dress Code in Effect – Lite (22 min)”

The Plumbline – Lite (15 min)

As of the posting of this piece, the Merriam-Webster dictionary states that relativism is a view that ethical truths depend on the individuals and groups holding them. Please note the distinction made by including the word ‘ethical’ to delineate the type of truth.  Audio version of the full-length blog/podcast (27 min). Definitions have changed based on cultural acceptance of a stated meaningContinue reading “The Plumbline – Lite (15 min)”

His Way Is Truth and Humbles Me – Lite (29 min)

Many people have heard the statement, “God doesn’t want religion, He wants a relationship”.  Some doubt it is feasible to have companionship with “the” transcendent and invisible life-giving Spirit; and, seriously question or doubt those who claim to hear from God. Others do not strike it from the realm of possible, but have no desire toContinue reading “His Way Is Truth and Humbles Me – Lite (29 min)”

One War: The Armour – Lite (20 min)

What are the Weapons of the Believer’s Warfare? God has given every believer tools for the battles they face, and the believer has a “duty” to suit up. Suiting up means that the armour is personally yours and fits you today. Remember, God will not place you in a battle you cannot win (1st Corinthians 10:13).Continue reading “One War: The Armour – Lite (20 min)”
