I have been thinking a lot about Hell lately. You know the Hell your parents and your church warns you about. The place where bad people go to burn forever. With the horned devil perched on his seat while he pokes sinners who dare to try to escape his fiery pit. Try as I may, […]Read More Hell! It Can’t Be Real! Or Is It?
When my Pastor walked up to the pulpit and opened up his Ipad to read the Bible passage, I was aghast! This has got to be sacrilegious! Blasphemous even! That was about 15 years ago. I was slow to embrace this new trend. How could the Holy Bible be traded in for an electronic device? […]Read More God’s Gone High Tech!
There’s a joke about a woman who prayed every day to win the lottery. One day while praying hard and telling God how she’s at the end of her financial rope, a voice was heard from Heaven, “Work with me here, first buy a lottery ticket!” That’s the mentality of many of us Christians, myself […]Read More Say A Prayer Then Do Something
Have you heard about the attacks? No, not the attacks in Paris. Or Baghdad or Beirut for that matter, the attacks on Muslims. Here’s one such attack. Yesterday in Toronto, Canada, a Muslim woman was attacked by two men while picking up her young son from school. They punched her to the ground while calling […]Read More Who Are Our Enemies?
Last night I felt too hot to be comfortable so I got up in the middle of the night and opened the window, letting in some much-needed cool air. My wife awoke to my rustling and warned me that it wasn’t a good idea as it would get extremely cold in the room. I didn’t […]Read More Unplugging From God
I hate missing church. But I do. We all do. In a perfect world, nothing we do should supersede God but we still let our personal agendas interfere with HIS schedule. So yes, there are times when I miss church to attend personal and pressing matters. Don’t you? Now don’t you hate when there’s that […]Read More Hey, Look Who Showed Up To Church!

Because God takes pleasure when we’re happy. Do good ’cause God wants you to be happy. When you come […]Read More Psst, I Agree With Victoria Osteen
I have always wondered about the saying, “I was lost but Jesus found me”. I never fully agree with it and have spent hours analyzing its true merit. I have no argument with the ‘being lost’ part of it but the way to salvation or ‘Jesus finding you’ is what I am not in […]Read More Who Found Who?
Have you ever felt that some things are not worth bothering God about? Like that headache that’s keeping you from going out with your friends or the pimple that suddenly showed up just when you finally had a date. Dear God, please make this embarrassing thing go away so my date could go well. I […]Read More Bothering God?
I was chatting to someone recently about fear. This person is a Christian but lives a life filled with fear. Fear and anxiety of the unknown. I used her faith to explain that with God, we really shouldn’t be fearful. She did not buy it so it made me think of it a bit more. […]Read More Can God And Fear Co-exist?
