Do you say “Oh my G**!” or “Oh my gosh!”?

Oh my G**! or Oh my gosh!

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

Editorial Cartoonist Mocks God

 

Editorial Cartoonist mocks God

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.

Bring Your Bible To School Day!

Bring your Bible to school day

October 4 is Bring Your Bible To School Day! How fantastic is that?

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, and the number for 2017 almost reached 500,000!  

Bring Your Bible To School Day started as a response to America’s schools continuing to forbid religious groups, Bibles, prayer, kneeling for God at football games, or even acknowledging Jesus in the classroom.  

This much needed event  is something Christian students may partake in openly. Continue reading

God is Three in One!

God is 3 in 1

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

5 reasons why using OMG**! is wrong

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.

In God We Trust is back, America!

In God we trust is back, America!

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

Lift Him Up Don’t Pull Him Down

Book review by Laura Martin

My book reviewed by Laura Martin.

Laura Martin, daughter of Christ, has diligently blogged over 850 posts proclaiming her understanding and love of God, Jesus, faith and Bible study. For this reason, I asked her to set aside some of her time back in May of 2015, to please review my book.

Laura’s positive response to my writing was much appreciated, so I decided to repost her review.  For those of you who have not yet ordered my book for yourself or a Bible study, her critique my help you with that decision for the new year.  

 My goal is to always transfer thoughts to paper as straightforwardly as Laura does. Thank you, Laura. Continue reading

You are loved by a Big God!

How wonderful to be know and loved by a big God!How wonderful to be known and loved by a big God!

Have you ever thought about how big our God really is? When we acknowledge the differences between our big God and those little gods, we begin to understand His true awesomeness.                            

Our big God sent His Son to offer us salvation from sin. We do not gain salvation by living a good life, though many folks believe that idea . No, we are saved only through faith in Jesus Christ and the blood that He shed for us on The Cross. Continue reading

Choosing To Honor God Is Personal

Choosing to honor God is personal

Do you like being respected? Do you appreciate being admired for your talents and achievements? I know I do, and so does God. His blessings to us are far beyond our imagination:

Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,

So why do so many of us find it necessary to trash God’s name? Continue reading
