Tithing Education – Giving From Guilt

I went to a church that had funds for everything, building funds, starvation funds, church funds and even funds to fund of funds if they ran out of money. Okay I just threw that last part in their but all kidding aside, there’s plenty of stuff to be done in our country, to help the starving, the poor and the needy. Why do we need to go to other countries?

The Sabbath Or the Lord’s Day – Which Do We Follow?

The Old Testament clearly states that the Sabbath is a day of rest and should be taken very seriously. Some Jewish followers believe that no work should be done at all on this day. I was listening to a program the other day, when they mentioned something that I found hard to believe or even imagine. Some of the followers of the Torah wouldn’t even go to the bathroom on the Sabbath, I don’t even know if I could do that. I would have to find another religion obviously to be a part of.

Adam and Eve Received Life’s Operating Manual

Don’t you hate it when two years down the road they tell you to refer back to your Operations Manual to fix that computer problem? Right. I know where I put that. Well fortunately I have remembered the operating manual God gave Adam and Eve. I’m getting old and I thought I’d better share it with you in hopes you pass it along. Language was metaphorical back in the days when young Adam and his lovely Eve joyfully pranced naked through the Garden of Paradise. The manual that given was of course The Tree of Knowledge and the insights were profoundly useful in understanding life, all contained in one version, one goldmine of impervious directions.

“Yearning For Zion” My Personal View of the Cult

“Yearning for Zion” Ranch outside of Eldorado, Texas is home to one of the largest religious cults in the world that practice plural marriages.

Why Teach a Speedy Six-Day Creation?

Since we were not at the beginning of the creation of our universe, we rely on the witness of the Creator who was. He usually uses people to convey his messages. This time he revealed to Moses how long it took to create the heavens and the earth. Then he made Moses famous by doing many miracles via his hands. Scientists who propose their guesses cannot show similar spectaculars.

God Smiles on the Little Things and the Little People

I know the joy of delivering a loaf of fresh, warm bread to my teacher who had a wife dying of cancer. His glad acceptance and open door echoed throughout my day. Another teacher’s wife brought hot chocolate and marshmallows to our final class in high school physics. We were taught about the effects of heat on the shape of the marshmallows. Another student memorized a poem which I used many a day with students in many classrooms. Little things can add up to big contributions.

The Story of Chosun, Part 21

Into the chaotic and often destructive mix of ideas and politics enters Rome and Catholicism. How much Jesus was lifted up by that organization is dependent on the individuals who represented her.

The Fist of the Pacifist is in the Mouth of Jesus

Time may reveal that what happened was very different from what you first thought. Obedience to a Master may demand it. Love for humans may drown the urge to retaliate. Let God take care of God-sized problems. God promises to right wrongs in spectacular ways.
