PIC: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950. Life is full of choices. You know? (Sometimes you don’t have a choice – like this only road over the Andes: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950.) We want the best choice – every time, right? We make a choice, choosing one over another – in order to have the […]
It’s a very simple message from God, actually – what He expects of us. His message is to all of us — us sinful, willful, rebellious, self-centered creatures. God is asking you and me to repent.
Permission to enter Have you ever been denied access? …access to anything: your own computer, an airplane, a country, a bank, a school, a concert, your own house..? Didn’t that feel horrible? I mean, here you came all this way, looking forward expectantly to enter… and, you were denied! You thought you were ready! “Permission […]

Imagine a personal friend so close he is available instantly. Anytime anywhere he will help you with anything on your mind.
This article made me wonder: how “public” about our faith are we in this land of the free? Does anything “register” with other people — about our faith? Do people that meet me – soon come to know of my faith in Christ as my Savior? Do I care whether they know or not? Does it matter?
Legitimate irritability. Ever see any yourself? Ever catch some from somebody – irritability? Do you legitimize your irritable ways? Recognize it in yourself? …that change of inflection revealing your irritability? You snap out a word. If you really go with it (the irritable feeling), you get stern, your voice rises, louder. Remember as a kid, […]
Just beyond “beyond the veil”, beyond this dimension where we live – there is a whole different existence prepared for us by God. And it’s eternal. Got your mind around that? For those who accepted Christ in this life — it will be totally… Awesome!
Ever feel like a working moron! Sometimes I am a moron! I do exactly NOT what I wanted to do, just as the Apostle Paul admitted in Romans 7: verse 15. How foolish is that!? Jesus does not condemn me when I sin! God does not approve my sin. He wants me to be pure and righteous, all together. But my God is a 1 Corinthians 13 type of God (verses :4-8a)!
It took nine months, but finally I slipped out, kicking and screaming, into the world. A new creation of God. My creation was birthed on March 31st. The end is yet to come. Go back a bit more in time to Genesis 1. There the Bible shares that God created the heavens and earth and […]
It is quite sobering to read the Bible and realize who we are, here on earth. We earthly creatures are born under God’s judgement. Unworthy of Him, we have been condemned to an eternity without Him. It will be life without God, forever. You can choose life with God, or you can choose life totally […]
Being “bad” or “good” is not the issue with God. God will judge us. But His judgement is based on His grace. Thankfully, His Judgement is not about how bad you’ve been. And, how good you’ve been will not help Him approve you. Whatever you have been, or not been, it is possible now to […]
You can choose life, or you can choose death. Choose life under God, or choose life void totally of the graces of God our Creator. It´s your choice. Take it or leave it.
I´ve got to want it, to get it. I never get anywhere unless I want it. I’ve got to want it – to get anything in life. Beyond the randomness, beyond those matters beyond my control, the reality is that much of life is a choice.
You are either in, or you are out. Scripture puts it this way: you are either of “those who are perishing”, or you are one of those “who are being saved”.
Me, When I Die…still in sin not forgiven by Christ Are you still rejecting Christ? Do you know that if you die in sin, you will die without hope, lost forever, never to see the goodness that is in God? God declares that all creation is condemned and due to be cast out of His […]
What’s it like these days to be a Christian? Really a Christian. For many, what the Bible teaches is generally okay, but, when it comes to certain specificities, what it says, they reason, needs to be interpreted in the light of today’s enlightened realities.But — will that work in – The End – when we stand before Him, physically? Stop and think about that Day.

We are continually bombarded by the fiery darts of the Evil One. And when these little pricks hit us, we need to put-out the flames, quickly. Doubts, depression, feelings of inadequacy, troubles, unruly kids…, when they come at us, we “have to declare” the truths of God, and we have to choose Truth over lies.
