It’s not my thing

First off, be careful what you pray for. I prayed that God would give me the opportunity to write, and now I am writing more than I have ever written. I’m writing multiple blog posts a day for multiple people/organizations. I’ve got more to write than I have time to write. And so far, I’m […]

That one question

As a Christ follower, I sometimes come across people who are…less than accepting of my beliefs. Believe it or not, there are some people out that who are against Christianity and who believe it is a bunch of B.S. I know, I was surprised too. Actually, a good part of 70% of the world has […]

Trusting God

Psalms 106:24 (NLT) The people refused to enter the pleasant land, for they wouldn’t believe his promise to care for them. We do we have such a hard time trusting God? The Israelites were literally given daily bread from God, and yet they still couldn’t trust him to provide for them. Everyday, we try to control […]

Fear and Confusion

Sometimes, the Bible can be really confusing. But usually, it’s not the Bible that is confusing, it’s just me that is confused. Ever since I accepted God’s free gift of salvation, I have learned about this all powerful loving God who wants the best for us all the time. He loves us. Loves us. Loves […]

Who is your god?

People serve many gods. They serve gods of greed, power, lust, and gluttony. They serve gods of cars, houses,  and flat panel TVs. They serve gods of clothes, shoes, and purses. They serve gods of pornography and other sexual immoralities. In short, we find new gods to serve all the time. But there is only one God […]

Knowing vs. Believing

Below is a message I delivered to my youth group this week. I realize more and more that there is a big difference between what we know and what we believe. For example: I know that drinking soda and adding artificial sweetener to my coffee is bad for me, but I believe that it won’t hurt me much […]

Jesus lays a verbal smack-down

If you’ve been reading this blog lately (maybe even for a while now) I have made it quite clear that I have issues with religion. More specifically, I have issues with religions that are based in Christianity. It has been on my mind a lot lately, and it has been getting to the point where […]

What should they call us?

I should really stop reading the newspaper. Every time I look through it I see all these articles about how awesome Christians are; how they show love to their communities, how they embrace diversity, and how they are never judgmental of others. It makes me so overly proud to call myself a Christian that I feel like […]

Faith and Speed Limits

When I was in college, and dating my wife, we lived a few hundred miles away from each other. Being 19/20 years old, and in love, meant that I was very motivated to make the drive as often as possible to see her. This put me on the highways and back roads of Florida a […]

Promises. Promises.

2 Peter 1: 3-4 3By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. 4And because of his glory and excellence, he has given […]

A Very Grand Canyon, Indeed

Let us take a few minutes to quiet our minds, put the cell phone down, focus our minds, and enjoy a small sliver of the beauty that God created. Some people would use the Grand Canyon as proof that the world is older than the Judea-Christian tradition teaches, and I have my own theories on […]

Do you need proof of heaven?

A few days ago I came across this article and was intrigued by the title. Heaven Is Real: A Doctor’s Experience With the Afterlife I fully intended to read it that day at work, but didn’t get around to it and so I put it off until another day. Today was that day. Here we […]

Don’t worry.

Philippians 4:6-8 6Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. 8And now, dear brothers and sisters, […]
