Christian Inspiration: Christian Shaming

I remember a time when liberals and so-called progressives waited at least a week before they started their grandstanding over a tragedy. Now, they do not even pretend to care for anything, but their agenda. Yesterday, after the shooting, liberals and progressives were already calling for the disarming of law abiding United States citizens, claiming…

Christian Inspiration: Narrow Road

Matthew 7:13-14 (HCSB) 13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who go through it. 14 How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and few find it.” When someone does you wrong or…

Christian Inspiration: Work Together

I went to seminary at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, California where Pastor Bill Johnson serves at Bethel Church. I would not trade one day there for another. It was an absolutely glorious experience. I went there for three years and attended the church for about four. I had such amazing experiences with…

Religion is NOT a dirty word

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “Christianity is not a religion, it’s a relationship.” I am sorry to say, that’s just not true.  I know I am going to take a lot of heat for this, but I have got to get this out there. I am saying this of my own free will. The…

Sing Oceans

The other day, I read an interesting blog post that commented on the popular Hillsong worship song: Oceans. The blogger said that while the song is good, Christians should not worship to it because of these lines: Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would…

July 9th- George Washington’s Troops

I came upon a very interesting fact. Though the Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4th, 1776 by the United States Continental Congress, it was read to George Washington’s troops on July 9th in New York City. I have to wonder what our first US troops were thinking. They knew they were going to…

Resurrection Sunday! Jesus is Alive!

John Chapter 20 (HCSB) 20 On the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark. She saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. 2 So she ran to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we…

Devotional- Have You Believed A Lie?

Do you struggle with thinking yourself a klutz? Maybe you think that you are not smart or not pretty. Could it be that someone told you that? Maybe someone a long time ago said one or all or more of these things. “You’re not pretty!” “You’ll never amount to anything!” “You have no talent!” “You’re…

Everyone has a talent or gift. It can be anything from being a CEO of a multibillion dollar company to being a pastor to a congregation of churchgoers. Don’t listen to the people who tell you that you have no talent. The Bible says everyone has a very important gift that needs to be used…

Book Review- Me, Myself, & Bob

“Technically, the cucumber came first. By that I mean he was created first. The cucumber. Larry. But he was alone, and it was not good. So I gave him a sidekick. A tomato. Named Bob. Larry was the loveable goofball—the guy who could entertain your kids at a birthday party. But Bob had ambition. The…

Devotional- What is Integrity?

This is a question that has perplexed me. Oh sure, there have been whole books and Bible studies written about it. So, what is integrity? These are some answers I have come up with. Integrity is being honest, having good character, having strong moral principles, but more importantly integrity is also being the same person…
