One of the things that irk me the most in Christianity today are people that become content with living in the world.
I’m talking about the people who say “God loves me just the way I am, why should I change?” And then continue to live just as the world lives, with no indication that they’ve ever been saved at all.
These types of people believe that Jesus’ death on the cross made everything “all cool” with God and sin isn’t a big deal anymore. In fact we don’t even need to worry about right and wrong now because after all, we’re forgiven and it’s no big deal, right? (more…)

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

I woke up to a news article this morning that really shocked me but at the same time it brought a revelation. The Holy Spirit immediately brought the above portion of scripture to my mind and I believe I understand now what’s about to soon take place. (more…)

I believe the Bible is the word of God.
I also believe the Bible has power and authority – however not to the point of deification. The physical book itself is not divine but contains the words and wisdom of the King. So in this light I respect the Bible as coming directly from the King.

Through prayer, diligent study, and meditation we can truly understand what His word is saying to us and apply it accordingly. When we hold it in this context we learn that this book is not simply a historical text but is an active and unfolding truth in our own day. We are part of it’s message and we are witnesses to it’s truth unfolding. (more…)

I recently read a blog post by a pastor friend of mine named Dave Flowers – Ten Things Christians Say That Drive Me Crazy

I enjoyed the post and understood on some level much of what he had to say, however he made a comment in his list that I certainly had to take issue with. The third saying on his list had to do with Christians who refer to “The last days” or “The end times” and he followed with this comment: “I’m not sure if any concept has been responsible for more “Christian” lunacy than this. Setting aside the fact that the theological concept of the “rapture” was almost completely invented in the early 1800′s…”  He followed with more on this issue that drives him crazy but this quote in particular stood out to me.

It’s been well over a year since I wrote Jesus Drives a Spaceship part 1 & part 2. Recently however I’ve kinda distanced myself from those posts and have even considered deleting them all together – but I’ve always hated the idea of destroying my work, no matter how much I grow to question it or disagree with it. There is always room to learn and grow from the past and I believe I have grown tremendously since writing those posts. (more…)

This may seem like foolishness to the world but Jesus taught the truth on how to have eternal life and see the kingdom of God.
Can someone return to their mothers womb and be born a second time? No. But we can surrender to Christ, become sealed with the Holy Spirit and have a new birth into the spiritual everlasting. (more…)
