Faithful are the Oracles of God

Ever wonder what is the point of all the difficulties a believer faces when pushing back darkness? While navigating through struggles, unpleasant experiences, trying relationships, and anticipating the challenges we see ahead, it is easy to wonder if fulfilling responsibilities and maintaining Godly attitudes have meaningful impacts and lasting consequences. Being holy and loving inContinue reading “Faithful are the Oracles of God”

The Outcomes

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”

The Just

For God to be good and have a relationship with us based on mutual love, He had to give humanity a choice. So, God created our species in His Image, made us perfect (knowing only good), and provided everything needed to succeed including perfect direction (and what to avoid). Then He gave us liberty; theContinue reading “The Just”

Freedom in Surrendering Accurate Accusations

Do people judge each other because of unforgiveness, ignorance, lovelessness, or entitlement? Are there several causes? Hmmm. I recently was challenged with dealing with heresy while submitting myself to the Holy Spirit’s training. It was a heart struggle in my nature! I admit I have difficulty wanting to sit in a church where the preachingContinue reading “Freedom in Surrendering Accurate Accusations”

Dress Code in Effect

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”

The Plumbline

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”

Freedom Convoy 2022 Scripturally (5 min)

So it is January 31st in Canada and there is a lot going on. Interestingly enough I am studying Ephesians 6 which speaks so much about spiritual warfare and standing firm. Discernment is needed to apply both in every situation. It will be some time before I finish my in-depth study of this passage; but,Continue reading “Freedom Convoy 2022 Scripturally (5 min)”

Born to Run Against Horses

Do you believe God is who He says He is? How can you be assured of your eternity with Him without believing what He has said about Himself and you? When we try to explain God’s ways through human reason, we often are confronted by Scriptures that seem contradictory or are opposed to common sense;Continue reading “Born to Run Against Horses”

BUT GOD!

In this “time of shaking”, values, health, economies, and environments are undergoing intense upset, and many people are revaluating their beliefs. It is critical to spiritual health to have confidence in something that is not subject to the manipulation of imperfect human beings. After my last blog on Ephesians 1 titled “Marked Pre-paid for Pickup“, I hadContinue reading “BUT GOD!”

Complex Decisions Made Simple and Fruitful (3 min)

Do you have important decisions to make? Just as the law of the LORD is summarized into a one-word command, ‘love’; the way to have a blessed and eternally fruitful life is summed up in two words which are ‘pray’ and ‘obey’. I believe this is the easiest way to break down complex situations. While I could write pages about these commands,Continue reading “Complex Decisions Made Simple and Fruitful (3 min)”
