There comes a time to stand for Jesus, or deny Jesus. Are you sold-out to Jesus? Jesus made so very clear which sides of issues are His Ways. To not follow His Ways, is equal to not following Him. Ready to meet your Maker, Jesus the Messiah?
“Rain falls on the just and the unjust alike.” God is like that with us.
Opinion’s worth your time… I will be adding more periodically (and republishing this page). Originally published February 18, 2018 @ 09:23:43. What he said: Christian leaders slam Lutheran denomination’s transgender bishop: a ‘revolt’ against God 9/15/2121 By Tyler O’Neil | Fox News Excerpts: “Transgender ideology makes humans the architects and superintendents of existence rather than […]
Scripture uses farmers terms. It calls true believers “wheat”, and fake believers “tares”. A tare is a plant that grows up with wheat, but is not true wheat.
Tares are like the piglet that suckles with the kitten’s mother cat. The piglet thinks he’s a kitten because he likes the milk. But he’s only a pig, not a cat. The same is true of folk who like the idea of being blessed by Christ, but never yield to Him.
Numbers 5:27 The New American Standard Bible translates this: “her thigh will [b collapse] shrivel” Psalm 39:13 Amplified Bible “For You formed my innermost parts; You knit me [together] in my mother’s womb.“ In WORLD Magazine and WORLD Digital, Leah Hickman [Twitter @leahmhickman] writes (WNG Post Date: March 24, 2021) “Translation abuse” https://world.wng.org/2021/03/translation_abuse “Some abortion […]
Are you tipping the scales to get what you want? Maybe using the wrong scales? “You are all wrong
because you know neither the Scriptures [which teach the resurrection] nor the power of God [for He is able to raise the dead].”
Peace within our own boundaries is not guaranteed. It is so important in these days that we all draw near to God, and pray. We must seek after God, while He yet can be found. Deuteronomy 4:29 “…seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your […]
“Following Jesus” versus “Liking Jesus” I doubt Jesus likes Facebook much. Especially now (2020) – where faceless Facebook minions are actually censoring Christian conservative thought. [The Christian Post reported this about Facebook, – Facebook shuts down Christian ministry’s page with no explanation. – Source: 0% Soon]. I find it totally amazing that companies censor so […]
At the end of his article, gently pointing out the error of his friend’s advice (John Piper), Wayne Grudem outlines two very contrasting lists of what will happen as a result of this election on November 3, 2020 — with Trump winning or with Biden winning. Very interesting. The results will be dramatically different. “Birds […]
With the most impacting voting opportunity EVER in history, the highly respected John Piper said basically: do not vote for either side. (in “Policies, Persons, and Paths to Ruin”) Here is a terrifically clear-headed, biblical answer (a scolding counter) to Piper’s absurd “no vote” advice. A respectful response to my friend John Piper about voting […]
How do you decide who to vote for, what to vote for – in these end times?
…when “it” does not make me happy. There sure is a lot of “unhappy” out there these days! Wow. Lots of folk out there raging and rioting and looting and killing willy-nilly. I don’t go that far afield. But I do get unhappy at times. I can always find something to make me unhappy. Never […]
Regardless of race, color, or party affiliation… there is a certain percentage of professing Christians that vote against Jesus’ worldview. Every election. What is the “worldview” of Jesus, according to the Bible? Is Jesus’ worldview your worldview? Consider these biblical views: Voting Dichotomously, What Jesus Stands For, Which Jesus Do You Serve?, Following, Following Someone, […]
Galatians 5:19-21 Now the practices of the sinful nature are clearly evident: they are sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality (total irresponsibility, lack of self-control), idolatry, sorcery, hostility, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions [that promote heresies], envy, drunkenness, riotous behavior, and other things like these. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, […]
Are you following a god made after your own understanding – or Creator God the One and Only? Are you making “god”? Would you like to die and find yourself kneeling before a different God than the one you had been following while on earth? God is calling us to Himself. Are you seeking God?
I was drawn to this Fox News item (7/26/2019), Sports Illustrated model Haley Kalil says ‘sorry mom’ after dancing to tune containing ‘bad word’. The model said “sorry mom”. She was “sorry” because a “bad word” was in a song she danced to. I wondered, What is her faith background? How did she arrive to […]
Quotes about mere puny mud-men and women of clay – us.
“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?” – Luke 6:46
…conduct becoming of a true, maturing Christian. A somewhat lengthy study of 1 Thessalonians 5 What Love Does. This passage by Paul the apostle exhorts the believer in Christ, “all believers, those set apart for God” — to live in a manner pleasing to Christ. We of course are not saved by how pleasing we […]
“…Don’t fool yourself by your limited thinking.“ – Swift’s Amped-up Paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 So, you are thinking? That’s a good thing! And those thoughts are – what? They are your thoughts? Have you been able to get past your own thinking – and think with God and His expressed thoughts? What are you […]
The wisdom from God reveals itself through our good behavior. A wise person shows his/her spiritual wisdom by their resulting good behavior (James 3:13-18). Are you spiritually wise and understanding? Look at your inner soul, and your outward actions, the things you do. That will tell you if you are spiritually wise and understanding. The […]
Be very careful you do not have a Secret Garden in your heart – where you carefully tend bad fruits and bad trees, attractive bushes and hedges in your mind, hidden from sight, things that go contrary to His expressed Ways. What are you cultivating? “There is a way which seems right to a man […]
Being an atheist: “It’s incidental to who I am.” – 2018 USA State Senator candidate Is that really what you think… that: How I think is incidental to how I act? That how I think is incidental to what laws and decisions I will support? How ridiculous is that!? A 2018 USA State Senator wannabee […]
So there were 2 men sitting in a cave, lost, philosophizing about what this cave was all about. One said: Hey, I discovered this note here, says: “Trust me – this cave is dangerous. Get out now.” Sounds good to me. And those bones seem to support what the note says! I’m leaving. The other […]
I am sometimes told I should not share my understanding of the Bible with certain issues — because it could very well offend friends and others. It is surely a well meant warning. Loved ones do not want others to reject loved ones. It is just so easy these days to offend others because of […]
What does the Bible say about being “great”? Jesus was great! And we are to be like Jesus! What are the biblical principles that should guide all Christians in their quest to be “great”?

– Anonymous Quote in reference to the Charlottesville violence – by both sides, violent white supremists and violent protesters against their racism… How ’bout this perspective – for us in the USA today? Maybe we all should try greeting each other in love? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than […]
In the beginning, we were the perfect creatures, humans made in the image of God. We all want to think we are still in Genesis 1. But actually we are changelings – born into Genesis 3 conditions, fallen in nature, quite consumed by the flesh.
God is quite a libertarian, in the sense that – He allows us total freedom to do whatever the hell we want. We love to be freeeeee! That tends to give us such a sense of “yippeeee!” that, as a consequence… our life can kind of get out of control. Just look at the news […]
