  • Christ’s words show he is God’s equal

    Religion is a funny thing. It often confuses me how some different religions interpret the Bible so differently than I do.
    I have been wrestling toe to toe with a very close friend of a different faith (I am Baptist) over one such difference. My friend’s church contends that Jesus is an angel, subservient to God, and less than God.

  • Have you truly sacrificed for God?

    The power.
    The power to destroy all of your enemies.
    The power to be the most important.
    The power to show the world you are the ruler of all.
    Hollywood often portrays powerful, vengeful people as heroes and winners. When you contemplate that Jesus had the power to destroy the world and all of his enemies, to end the lives of the men torturing and spitting on and mocking him, remember this: he didn’t retaliate.
    As the old hymn says, “He could have called 10,000 angels to destroy the world, but he died alone, for you and me.”

  • Atheists spreading message of nothing

    The atheists are recruiting.
    Let me explain. I absolutely love the Kentucky State Fair. It is something I typically never miss. The weird food, awesome displays of agriculture, the maze of flea market trinkets, etc.
    One thing that absolutely blew my mind this year was a sad and unusual booth I encountered. I was walking by this unattended booth and stopped as it had a statue of Mark Twain, and the back wall was covered with posters of celebrities.

  • Lukewarm about salvation? God will spit you from his mouth

    I often times question my own salvation, as I think we all do. I sometimes feel as if I am pretty much doing nothing to honor Christ with my life.
    I attend and participate in church, but often don’t feel satisfied that I am doing enough.
    I clearly recognize that one cannot earn their way to heaven as we are saved by grace not works (Ephesians 2:8).
    A true believer is saved by grace that produces works. However I often feel like I fall into the category “lukewarm.”
