Acts 21:13 "Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus." Paul was warned that the Jews were looking to arrest him. They implored Paul to stay away from … Continue reading Facing Social Rejection
Acts 9:29 "And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him." After Paul's conversion, he almost immediately began preaching. The Grecians of this day were Greeks, but also Jews who spoke Greek. Paul was also a Greek speaking Jew, so he … Continue reading Speak Boldly
Acts 5:29 "Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men." This ties in well with yesterday's verse (John 19:15). Christians who capitulate to man's laws (this includes rules, norms, and mores as well) that violate God's laws are in violation of the Bible. We see far … Continue reading It is Time to Disobey Man
John 19:15 "But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar." This verse is indicative of modern "Christians" who put their politics above God. We see this from the Left as government has … Continue reading I Pledge Allegiance to the Son
John 16:33 "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." In my nearly 40 years of life, I have never seen the entire world in so much chaos. I have never experienced … Continue reading This World is Overcome
John 15:18 "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." We live in a society that is becoming increasingly hostile toward Christians and biblical Christianity. Believing in biblical views of sexuality, gender, race, marriage and marital roles, government, judicial systems, etc. lead those around us to label us … Continue reading I Hope to be Hated
In my frustration in conversing with my fellow Christians who fear standing on Biblical truths in matters of homosexuality, tattoos, the Trinity, and which Bible translation is the inspired word of God (if any), I decided to see how our brothers and sisters in Christ were treated as the Church was first formed. I turned … Continue reading Are You Willing to Die for Christ?
"Ignorance is bliss" Americans used to get 30 minutes of local news and 60 minutes of national news each day. If you missed the broadcast, you had to read a newspaper in the morning. That's it. That is all the news media consumption that was available. Now we have a 24 hour cable news cycle … Continue reading We Are Victims of Moral Panic
As I watch some of the "highlights" (which is a questionable description) of the Democrat debate last night, I weep as presidential candidates aggressively fight for the destruction of both the history and future of the United States. Sentiment 1: "The country was and is racist, and we are the wealthiest nation on the planet … Continue reading Democrats Will Destroy the U.S.
About 10 years ago, I predicted a simultaneous civil war, world war, and economic collapse. At that time, we were in the midst of the “Great Recession” and escalating conflict overseas between Middle Eastern nations including our own “war on terror” that continues to solider on. Right now, it seems that those last two issues … Continue reading The Coming Civil Conflict
