Cultural misunderstandings in the Bible · 5:35am Sep 6th, 2018

As one might expect, an audience two to three thousand years apart from a finished work leaves a lot of differences to be accounted for. Ancient manuscripts and documents can be misunderstood even when translated, because the meaning behind the words is lost. Here are some examples of events in the Bible that go over reader's heads;

An encouraging word · 12:31am Jun 10th, 2018

Ephesians 2:8-9; "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not of yourselves; it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast."

We can't save ourselves, Only God can do that. It's not that we shouldn't do good things; we should. But not out of fear of not being saved or for reward. We should do good out of love for our God and our neighbor.

Hebrews 13:9; "Your hearts should be strengthened by God's grace, not by obeying rules."

Moderation · 3:54am Wednesday

There are many things in this life that, when used wrongly, can do great evil. However, these things are not evil in and of themselves.

- Wine is meant as a pleasant drink, to be enjoyed when people celebrate or come together. However, drinking too much lead to drunkenness and debauchery, to the point of fighting and even killing one another, sometimes without even remembering it.

Reflection on David and Absalom · 7:55pm Sep 8th, 2018

2 Samuel 18:33 provides us a look at a father's love for his son. There had been a civil war between David and his son, Absalom, who had launched a coup to seize the throne. After a battle in the Forest of Ephraim, Absalom had been killed (against David's orders) by general Joab, who sent two messengers to confirm his death. David's response to his son's death was to openly grieve for him; "O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! Would that I had died instead of you, O Absalom, my son, my

Still wiping the tears from my eyes. Which is saying a lot, because not much makes me cry these days, and that's sad in and of itself.

Again concerning homosexuality · 12:13am Nov 15th, 2016

You probably showed up here expecting another blog attacking homosexuality. While it's true I still view it as wrong, I've realized that all sins are bad; lying, cheating, stealing, adultery, distorted and uncontrolled anger, hatred, and idolatry are all bad, and homosexuality is no less, or worse, than the rest of them.

5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, 6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”

7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”

The prosperity gospel and its dangers · 1:19am February 13th

I watched this last week. I disagree with the title for a couple of reasons; A. the true gospel is indestructible, B. American pastors aren't the only ones who have, or are capable of, distorting the Bible's message in the minds of their audience. I admit, I probably am prejudiced against the title, as someone who cares about this country.

Letter from a wood painting I own... · 3:04am Sep 25th, 2016

The Letter
Dear Friend,
How are you? I just had to send a note to tell you how much I care about you.
I saw you yesterday as you were talking with your friends. I waited all day hoping you would want to talk with me too. I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you – and I waited. You never came. It hurt me – but I still love you because I am your friend.

(Possible) identity of the Commander in Joshua 5:13-15 · 7:21pm Oct 19th, 2016

I've recently read several of Max Lucado's books. The most recent I've read is called Glory Days. Chapter 7 has a rather interesting idea of who the Commander of the LORD's Army is;

The Bible is famous for surprise encounters. Yet no visit is more mysterious than this one; them an with the upraised sword in the air.

Who was he? Let's eliminate some options.

Just saw the movie [i]Do you Believe[/i]... · 6:11am Aug 14th, 2017

...In one scene, a patient dying the hospital says, "He [Jesus] has a soft spot for sinners."

That got me thinking at once;

The world is a hospital, and we're all in for the illness of sin. Adultery, murder, violent crime, hatred, negligence, you name it. Jesus is the Great Physician, the Head Doctor, treating our illness and healing hurts.

How to deal with the reality of hell · 11:33pm Apr 6th, 2018

I recognize that this is an unpopular and uncomfortable topic. That does not make it any less important, or worth talking about.

1. Face reality. Hell exists. It is a place of eternal suffering. Anyone who rejects God will go there. And no amount of human-based rhetoric will change that.

Fear of God vs. being afraid of God · 2:03am Feb 21st, 2018

I think we've all heard of the Fear of God. But what's the difference between such a fear and being afraid of God? And why are we told so many times to not be afraid while being told to fear God?

Concerning the appearance of God... · 6:43pm Mar 26th, 2016

God is spirit (John 4:24), and ultimately, we cannot know what He looks like. The most common misconception regarding the appearance of God is that He looks like an old man wearing a robe. During appearances in Ezekiel and Revelations, Ezekiel and John repeatedly had to use phrases such as "what appeared to be" or, "He looked like," et cetera, simply because no human words could describe Him.

Yep, it's that time of year again. Carols, Santa, music on the radio, Salvation Army in front of Wal-Mart, cookies, turkey, chicken, gingerbread houses, and Christmas trees and wreaths galore... not to mention presents.

But let's not forget the reason for the season. While all these things are nice, they do not compare with what is really important.

Please forgive me, I know this is late.

It is a time to rejoice; Not only did the Lord Jesus die on the cross, but He rose again, proving his defeat of death and of the forces of sin and the devil.

"But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened." (Luke 24:12)

It\u2019s impossible to think about your go-to outfits without first envisioning the one staple that always has you (your legs, specifically) covered. And, like ice cream flavors or Netflix-binge shows, you have your favorite pair of jeans; the one that just always works. Sure, you\u2019ll try a new style every season \u2014 like the latest take on distressing \u2014 but when it comes down to the pair you actually wear every weekend, you have your one. Everyone does.
