If You Don’t Have Haters You Ain’t Doing Kingdom Right! If You Make The Devil Nervous Expect Hate!

God, Me, and Being Unique

Without God, I am a shy, introverted, insecure woman who feels that she’s never pretty enough, smart enough, clever enough, or strong enough to be much good to anyone. But you know something? I believe with all my heart that God doesn’t make mistakes and He can use me just the way I am. How about you?

Heaven and Poverty

About two years ago, I had read in Tarif Khalidi’s The Muslim Jesus that Jesus did not have anything but a comb and a cup. Once He saw someone who combed his beard with His fingers, He dumped His comb. On another occasion, He saw a man drinking water from the river with both hands as a cup, then He cast away His cup.

Stressful Times at Church? Do What I Say, Not What I Do!

In a list of the most stressful jobs you can have, being a minister came in as one of the top ten. Pastors weren’t surprised by that at all, but what if things were different? What if we practiced what we preached?

God Has No “Foster Children”

Kids who grow up in the foster care system have a distorted view of family life, belonging, themselves, and God. In constant fear of rejection, they come to see themselves as conditional members of a family at best; unlovable and unwanted at worst. Many Christians misunderstand eternal security and the immutable nature of God’s love.

Jewish Bible, Torah – Parshas Shemos

Wanted! More Leaders, Fewer Rulers

While the euphoria of Mr. Obama’s election in 2008 was more than intriguing to me, all the political hype leading up to that election fascinated me more than I have ever been – politically. People like Mr. Edwards, Mrs. Palin, Mr. McCain, and of course Mrs. Clinton, and others – all fighting with everything within them to wear the coveted crown, Leader Of the Free World.

Women in the Bible (20-Part Series) #7 – Rachel & Leah (Part 1)

Rachel was the active daughter, who went into the fields to shepherd the flock. Rachel was of the earth, and she had an earthly physical beauty that immediately attracted Jacob. But Leah was not of the earth. Genesis describes her as having “weak eyes”. Symbolically this means that she did not see well into this world, for she was always looking inward.

Baby Christening Gowns – What Type of Gown Should You Choose?

Finding the perfect gown or outfit for your baby’s christening doesn’t have to be frustrating. When considering Baby Christening Gowns, keep your baby’s comfort (confinement, time of year, etc) in mind as well as the style you prefer.

Animism – First Faith

There was a time when we did not have such knowledge of the world around us, and how it works the way it does. We did not understand the chemical process of combustion or the makeup of a flame.

God Did Not Reveal His Trinity to Impress Anyone

With something as spectacular as revealing the 2000 year old Trinity mystery, man would have desired someone like a Billy Graham, or a Joel Osteen to make it known. However, our ways are not God’s ways, nor our thoughts His thoughts. As we look back over Bible history, we find that God generally does things with very little fanfare.

The Mystery of the Blood Covenants

God had a redemptive plan for mankind that was set in the garden of Eden. In this article I will explore the 3 redemptive blood covenants; Abrahamic covenant, Mosaic covenant and the final blood covenant through the sacrificial lamb, Jesus Christ.
