Question


Return to the Lord before it is too late for you.

Question: How does God get the attention of His people when they are disobedient and fallowing their own ways?

What do you think? Leave a comment, let me know.

Don’t Blame God for Your Cowardice

Don’t Blame God for Your Cowardice (link)
Here is a link to an article that concerns all of us. We need to evict cowardice in ourselves,  because we are the Church. We each have the responsibility to come to the aid of our pastors, and raise the sword of the Spirit against the lies of the evil one. Often Christians caution their pastors about how they should preach and what they should preach, but some cautionary statements such as the examples in this article are straight from the pit. Also, when we are afraid to do the will of our Father because we are listening to the lies whispered into our own ears, we need to raise the sword of the Spirit against the spirit of fear. So, Be Brave and evict cowardice.

Got Any Loners?

    Of course you do; every congregation has them. Especially those who are without friends. Those people in your church who seem to blend into the wall paper, or into the crowd. There are those who hide in a large church for many reasons. Often they hide from rejection. They've been hurt enough times that they just won't risk the pain, but they see their need for God, and so they come to church, and hide.

CHURCH SPLITS: Could they be the judgment of God?

     Has your church split? Ours has. More than once. We used to think that it was 'their fault.' We used to think we were right, and that if it hadn't been for 'them' our church would be happy and healthy today. Happy and healthy. No. Our church was suffering the same malady as is the rest of the Church in America: The Ephesus Syndrome.

Be Brave - Become a Hero


A hero is someone we look up to and admire for their bravery in the face of overwhelming odds. They are also people who face their fears, or people who ignore their fears to accomplish something that, in their estimation, is urgently necessary. A hero is someone we look up to and admire for their bravery in the face of overwhelming odds. Sometimes a hero dies in the attempt, sometimes they live.

Be the Solution

Change. That's a dirty six letter word. Nobody likes change. But, what happens when God says "you're not doing what I told you to do" and He's talking to your church? When people who were good little church goers suddenly leave the place in which you were so used to seeing them and they start spreading gossip or downright lies because they didn't want anything to change, what about that?

Shun Fear

The Christian Church in America

   I stood in the foyer of our church one Sunday morning watching people enter. A couple came in wearing motorcycle leathers, fringe, zippers everywhere, long-haired freaky people. I used to think I was as free a thinker as anyone and able to accept people for who they are, not who I want them to be.

Obedience or Not, What Do You Think?

     When God speaks of obedience to Him and His commandments, who is He talking to? He's talking to His people, whether they be Jews, or Christians. He's talking to the Church in America. He's talking to everyone who call themselves by His Name: Christian. Whether they are Sunday go to meet'in Christians or they are Really Live It Christians. If you say you are Christian, then He's talking to you. Better listen, because there are all kinds of scriptures in the in the old and the new testament that address people who say they are His but are friends with the world. And friends with the world are enemies of God.
