Not unusual for Hollywood, the Emmy Awards this week applauded one if its hosts, Michael Che, telling the audience that his mother was not watching the show —“She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough. That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
Hmmmm, assuming Mrs. Che is a Christian, because Michael did say she wants Jesus to be thanked more, I wonder if Mrs. Che enjoyed her son’s joke at Christian’s expense?Continue reading →
Some people erroneously believe they must clean up their lives before coming to Jesus. They are sadly ashamed of their past: the dirty baggage they carry, the scars they created or endured, the hidden hurt laying on their hearts. They allow past sin to bind them.
If you are one of those misinformed souls not familiar with the Good News, let me share with you the truth Jesus taught and lived by some 2000 years ago. I know 2000 years seems long in the human time frame, but have no worries –
Some may not like his style, but facts are facts and one can not dispute Donald Trump is accomplishing much needed objectives for those of Christian faith. No, I would not want him to take the lead as my Bible studies teacher; that was not the reason I voted him into the oval office. Religious teaching is not one of his gifts. Business sense, leadership and making deals are President Trump’s gifts.
Writing as someone blessed not as one included in a “basket of deplorables”, and under my own initiative with no order from my husband, I respectfully believe one day a “powerful woman” with America’s interest at heart will lead this country. But today, I am thankful for President Trump.
Had Mr. Trump not been elected, many changes for the betterment of religious living would not have occurred. Listed are a few prominent ideas that the Trump Administration placed in effect.Continue reading →
Was it last night, after your feet snuggled warmly under the covers? Did you thank Him for giving you another twenty-four hours to share His love?
Or did you thank Him this morning, before those same feet hit the floor? Did you acknowledge allowing your eyes to see the sun rise; enabling you to make right any wrongs you committed yesterday? (FYI, as I’m writing, I thanked Jesus for my MS.)
Word and world alphabetically part company at the fourth letter. We Christians, however, understand there is literally a world of difference between these two words. The Word is God’s personal message to us. It is good, purely instructing how to live a holy life. The world, however, reflects man’s rebellion to God. It is not pure, as it contains both good and evil.
Evil is what desperately tries to cunningly trick us away from God’s Word.Continue reading →
Jesus, who was crucified at age thirty-three, spent the last three years of His life on earth traveling the areas of Galilee, Samaria and Judea. His purpose was to share His identity asthe way, the truth and the lightof God.
Even while Jesus was a youngchild of twelve, everyone who heard Him was amazed at His understanding and His answers while discussing scripture.
Jesus, who has the power of heaven within Him, could have saved Himself from the agony of the cross but He chose to suffer. Why, people want to know, did this “man” do this?Continue reading →
God desires you to come to Him during any situation, especially before you make life changing decisions. King David of Israel loved and trusted God, yet he still forgot the need to continually seek Him.Continue reading →
Christians know the book of Revelation in the New Testament. John the apostle, wrote it when he was about 90 years old as a prisoner of Rome on the island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea. Like his first book, John, Revelation reveals the full identity of Christ, plus (in short), Revelation proclaims how final judgement occurs for believers and unbelievers when Christ returns.
However, an important book of the Old Testament too often overlooked on the topic of eternal destiny is Deuteronomy. Written by Moses, he encouraged the Israelites to follow God’s law – and if they ignored God, God states exactly what will happen.
For some reason, a reference to a newly released song recently showed up on my FB. I do not download music or visit music sites so I was surprised to view a music post on the feed. Who knows how FB decides content, right?
Anyway, it’s not the fact that it showed up that drew my curiosity to check out the video. It was the title of the song that stabbed me. Continue reading →
On July 20, 1969, the world witnessed Apollo 11 mission commander Neil Armstrong walk on the moon. Hours before this planned and historic event occurred, Buzz Aldrin, Lunar Module Pilot, carried out another planned and historic event on his own. Colonel Aldrin took communion on the moon.
The following excerpt from Buzz Aldrin’s 2009 book, Magnificent Desolation, offers background to this holy occasion:Continue reading →
