Temptations

I am starting a new Wednesday Series today doing a poem. Most of the poems that you will see are my original works. My poetry covers the whole of human struggle. I have been an active poet since I was 16 years old. This one is pulled from the archives of 2004 on temptations. More …

NCV Bible Translation

I read any Bible translations that I can read.  I am frequently asked for my comments on translations, so here are my thoughts on the New Century Version or NCV The Bad The translation is a gender neutral which totally removes it from use for some people (I am referring to the people that think …

Doctrine and Spirit

Amazon.com Widgets I had a wonderful debate in the past with a Christian over the author John Eldredge. I deny this author as completely sound, discounting his theology as open theism (which he denies in his books, yet he fits the definition exactly), I have friends who agree there are a few problems, but the …

Test of Orthodoxy

I have been thinking of this again as I continue to watch Hells Bells 2 over and over. I think about the old music that I gave up when I became a Christian. I think also of what I still have. Not only the music, but I also examine the movies, games, etc. 2 Thessalonians …

The Evil of Football

I was out after church with a bunch of sports freaks.  You know the type: loud, rowdy, teasing each other about the jerseys that they were wearing.  I got to talking to another person that was there that, much like myself, was not really into sports.  We made an interesting connection between evil and football!  …

Sanctification – Of God or Man?

A great debate has occurred in my church with some of the members, it was related to that oh great debate of Predestination!  The conversation quickly moved onto the topic of sanctification.  This is not usually misunderstood (or at least not debated hotly), but it was in this case.  One side of the argument suggested …

Stretch Me, Lord!

Here in America we are too comfortable.  Of course, we as a country have pressed hard for the American Dream, which was loosely defined as having money, at least enough to not have to worry about it, having cars, a house, and 2.5 kids (usually two kids and a dog).  When the World War II …
