Does bad news cancel good news?

The Bad news and the Good News In response to your post. Here is an excerpt from your post: You might have heard people say, “When I get to Heaven, God has a lot of explaining to do!” I don’t think that will be the case. I remember hearing about a gal who had suffered horrible abuse as a child. Talk about needing to process! She wound up having a near-death experience, and found herself surrounded by so much love that all...

Finding God in the World of Camping

Camping is a wonderful activity, and it’s time to get out into nature and escape a world of distractions. I believe that connecting with nature can also enhance our sensitivity to our awareness of the one true God, the creator of all. I explore this and other camping topics with the RV Wingman, who has a popular YouTube channel and is a trusted source for outdoor activities like camping. Can you find God on camping? Should I join the RV...

African Slaves turn to Christ

Africans turn to Jesus and seed Pentecostal movement Through grinding crucible[1] of life, the African Christians overcame the world and became something new through spiritual renewal that blessed the entire world. Raboteau teaches us how God has worked in African American history, “The Christian believes that God acts in history. In my study of African American history, I have been moved by the pervasive faith of black Christians that God was acting in their own history (Raboteau 1995, 14).” Some may ask...

Evolution is still debatable

Evolution is still debatable I’m thankful for science and the advancement of the quality of life of billions of human beings worldwide. Research is so fascinating, but it takes a long time to figure out complicated problems. Like a 4-billion-year-old problem. How did here in this form? What was the causality factor? In my opinion, focusing squarely on science and research, we have not determined beyond reasonable doubt that humans (and all lifeforms on earth) evolved from basic building blocks of atoms...

Do you have depression or anxiety?

My heart breaks for people who feel lost and alone. It’s even worse for people who have a lot to be thankful for, yet they are severely depressed. Let me quickly tell you something that will benefit you because the truth is very plain and free (as it should be). It is a terrible thing to forget about God, this alone can cause depression and anxiety.     “Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God,...

Back to the Basics

Early Christians used to meet in synagogues. These were Messianic Jewish believers connected directly or indirectly to the Jesus movement in Judea. Many gentiles would worship there as well. If there was no synagogue in the area, then Christian people probably would meet in the home of a peaceful, hospitable family. It’s time to get back to the basics. We should have learned our lesson in 2020 that we can easily be cut off from our brothers and sisters by government...

Are you a light in the darkness?

Philippians and the Demonstrative Gospel As a prisoner, Paul wrote about how our attitude and motivation should mimic Christ Jesus. We’d be wise to pay attention to his view on Jesus Christ since he was personally visited by the resurrected King of the Universe and also was completely blinded by this event. Jesus asked the question, “Why are you persecuting me?” This should not be the case for any of us, my dear friends. Yet, I know it happens too often...

Is Freedom Of Speech Free

Is Freedom of Speech from God? There has been an attack on freedom of speech and expression, mainly on social media platforms, due to the highly charged political environment of the 2020 election in the United States. When two sides are far from a compromise, there will be heated discussions, which often devolves into hateful name-calling (malice). Have you ever wondered why freedom of speech is the first amendment to the US Constitution? “In general, the First Amendment guarantees the right to...

More about the six P’s in the Bible

There are six books in the bible that start with the letter P. If you read these frequently, you will understand the bible. Take some time this year to focus on these six books. Read from all of them and mix it up if you want. Ever wonder why people don’t listen to you? Ever wonder why they won’t let you explain your faith without interruption? It’s not just you and your lack. The scripture says this is foolish behavior, and...
