Peace. Some folks think peace is hard to come by, but as believers, we know different. We know a peace that transcends all understanding; a peace that is always there if one simply believes.Continue reading
The union of the Father and Son and Holy Ghost is known as the Godhead. They are also known as the trinity. Blessed, holy, and sacred, they are “one God in three Divine persons”.
Understanding how God came in human form as Jesus, yet His essence also includes Holy Spirit, is an idea many–including myself–have a hard time comprehending.
This week’s video gives a very basic explanation of the persons of the trinity, because understanding this complex truth means we have to start somewhere, right?Continue reading
In America, one can easily find new Bibles written in formats suited for different needs. It’s wonderful knowing that though the Bible is old its translations are continually updated to accurately communicate God’s original message. And, that those translations are inspected in order to maintain God’s word as pristine to that same original text.
There are several Bible versions in my home, especially since my daughter and her husband are seminary students working on their doctrines. The Bible I usually reference is the New International Version Life Application Study Bible. It contains more than 23,500 cross references. Those references provide for lots of information.
We Christians are founded on His holy word and we must do all we can to continually reverence it–not pollute it with the nonsense of society.Continue reading
How fantastic is this?
The event, started by Focus on the Family in 2014, is growing in popularity. With every state in the nation involved, 8,000 students participated in 2014, 155,000 in 2015 and 356,000 in 2016. In 2017 almost 500,000 students participated and 2018 surpassed even that!
Bring Your Bible To School Day started as a response to America’s schools continuing efforts to forbid the meetings of Christian groups, reading Bibles, saying prayers, kneeling for God at football games, and even acknowledging Jesus in the classroom.
On October 3, Bring Your Bible To School Day is an event—a social activity—that all Christian students may openly partake in.Continue reading
Listen to random conversations around you. You will definitely notice more people verbally spewing “Oh my G**!” to express their excitement rather than using the phrases “Oh my gosh!” or “Oh my goodness!”
This choice has also carried over into our electronic communications. When texting became the norm, abbreviations were formed to hurry the typing process, which brought on the OMG overload.
Some say the letters OMG! stand for Oh my gosh!, but I believe they are skirting the truth.
Often referred to as acronyms, (though by definition they are initialisms) only the first letter of each word is used to form an abbreviation so we can type messages faster. Many trendy typed conversations to your BFF (Best Friend Forever) might also include: Continue reading
Recently I posted, Christians, Claim Your Identity!, noting how Hollywood, again, poked fun at Christians during the Emmy Awards: “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.”—Michael Che, referencing his mother.
Of course the flood gate of God-haters in Hollywood will never be totally closed until the return of Christ. So for now, Christians must continue swimming through Hollywood’s muddy waters. And sadly, just as murky mainstream Hollywood has no conscience for attacking Christians as a group, a certain God-mocking editorial cartoonist also has no problem publicly directing a penned attack at one little believing girl.

Discussions about God sometimes evolve from random conversations with friends. When this happens in the circles I socialize with I really enjoy it because sports and politics usually override group conversations. Many times when these biblical topics arise, the discussions include questions regarding truths that I totally believe and have some knowledge of.
I always try to communicate to others what I know about these truths, but on many occasions I realize my lack of knowledge on the subject. The Bible contains sixty-six separate books with God’s word spoken from the beginning of time. That’s a lot of information! Continue reading
Over the past decades, society has willingly, and I shall also say enthusiastically, decided that exclaiming Oh My G**! is: pertinent, necessary and acceptable in everyday conversations.
However, because of the definition of God, and the way I understand our LORD’s third commandment, I must disagree. Let me share five important reasons why expressing Oh My G**! is absolutely wrong.

While defining how we, the people come by our liberties, revered President Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.” President Jefferson also asked his countrymen this specific question on the subject: “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are of God?” Continue reading
