Why do you claim to be a Christian? Do you walk like your talk? Is the faith of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Paul — your faith? Are you walking dead, or are you alive in Christ?
This drama clip shows people being judged by a special Good-O-Meter. You’ve got to see it: Have they been good or bad?
What is good, and what is not
Are you going with God? Or, are you going against God? What’s it going to be?
Jackson Browne – “It’s later than it seems”
Jackson Browne sang “I have done all that I could – To see the evil and the good”. He sang “Better bring your own redemption when you come – To the barricades of Heaven where I’m from.” But, per the Bible only Jesus brings true redemption.
The Triumph of Evil
Evil has been beating good frequently ever since the Creation of our tiny earth world. It just did it again (January 7, 2021). Evil won the day. Big, evil events have often splattered history: Eve fell for the Serpent’s lies Adam fell for the seduction of Eve’s greed and envy Man’s wanton sinfulness went worldwide […]
Why all my pain and sorrow, my sickness and worries?
…why all my pain and sorrow, sickness and suffering, depressed feelings and worries? It’s from the Fall of Man. The Fall of Man, falling away from God and into sin, is recorded in Genesis 3. We live to see the effects all the way throughout history, all the way into our own times – and […]
My best day here
“Now” is good – so immediate… so absorbing. Demands so much attention. I practice being here – now. That’s good. Heaven is so…”later”, so not-pressing, so very “out of sight – out of mind”, so abstract. I am here now, but I want to be more aware of where I am going when I die. Where are you going when you die?
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, […]
Is your light actually darkness?
Jesus said this about light and darkness, what is good and what is bad: (Luke 11:33-36) 33 “No one lights a lamp and then puts it in a cellar nor under a basket [hiding the light], but [instead it is put] on the lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. 34 The eye […]
I Look Oh My God
I look at an orchid, a rose, the tropical fish, lush jungles and forests, men, women and children and I say, “Oh my God such beauty can only be from You. It is good what you have done. I look at the skies and the stars and the universes beyond….
There is a place
When this life is over and we’ve lived it all for self we’ll have nothing in eternity but self and self that’s all
Bein’ Bad or Good
Do you ever think you’ve been too bad for God to forgive you? The Bible truth is that God died for us — even while we were yet in sin. He is asking us to repent and follow Him. Now is the acceptable time.
Vortex of Good & Evil
As mere humans, we are engulfed in the vortex of battle between good and evil. Whether we like it, or not, that is the reality within this world that God created. We must remember – it is God who created us, not we ourselves. We have an obligation, by God, to choose Him, the Good, or continue, enslaved by Evil.
Looking at Others
What do you think of others? Do you size-them-up: know their sins and think less of them, or think they are great because you like how they look or like how much they have? Remember that God does not wait for us to be perfect. He wants us to come to Him just as we are, now. Even so, even as Christ, no matter the sin – we love the sinner. There is no excuse for us to put-down another. There is no sin too great – nothing that God cannot forgive.
