Going Dark

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the Holy Ghost.” (Acts 2:38) I got baptized the other day. I thought about this passage leading up to the event. Let me back up a bit […]

The Best Offense

“Peter answered and unto Him, Though all men shall be offended because of Thee, yet will I never be offended.” (Matthew 26:33) OFFENSE It’s a capital “offense”. Get it!? *ahem* Sorry. The above verse would be an example of a “bad offense”. What do you think of when you read the word? What’s the last […]

The Benefit of Friendship

“A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” (Proverbs 17:17) I have a friend. I also have a brother. While my best friend currently resides on the other side of town from I, my brother is living—stationed, really—on the other side of the country. I go to my friend (and […]

Room to Let

“I will be glad and rejoice in Thy mercy: for Thou hast considered my trouble; Thou hast known my soul in adversities; And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: Thou hast set my feet in a large room.” (Psalm 31:7-8, emphasis mine) Imagine yourself emerging from a cave of decades-long […]

The Main Course (An Extended Metaphor)

“For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.” (Romans 14:2) Causing a stir How do you do it? Assuming you had no fear nor hangups, how do you keep all the pots on your stove from either boiling over, or burning? Pray tell. Even as I type this, […]

Burning Up In the Atmosphere

“Every thing that may abide the fire, ye shall make it go through the fire, and it shall be clean…” (Numbers 31:23a) There are times when you feel you need something and don’t know what it is. You see a horizon and you know you want it but you don’t know what it takes to […]

The Spectrum of Idolatry part 7 An Idol Is Nothing

“Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me; There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god. I am the Lord thy God which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will […]

ReadMe

I’ll tell you what this is. This was my attempt, however naively, to prove to the world that Christianity was more than just myth for modernity. I say it’s naive because I’m only seeing it through my Postmodern lens, an eminently American and somewhat socially entitled point of view. In other words, I have freedom […]

The Third Degree

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” (1 Timothy 1:15) No kidding. A consolation I have (in my hip pocket, as it were) is that any person you see in the world is the one person for […]

That God Would Interact With Us

“There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.” (Proverbs 19:21) Think about the ways God has revealed Himself to you. Not just “revealed” but as the title suggests “interacted”. To where you came to a present realization that the Lord of Creation was both making Himself […]
