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 […]

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 […]

Sign, Wave

“And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch. Then came the Jews round about Him, and said unto Him, How long dost Thou make us to doubt? If Thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.” (John 10:24) “Tell us plainly…” Sometimes, the forest for the trees is right in plain sight. Not sure if […]

Capacious

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” (Luke 6:38) Out of our selves I love this as a rule. As a rule, […]

Terroir

“A man that hath friend must shew himself friendly…” (Proverbs 18:24a) This is the way. If you want to have friends, you must be a friend, in other words. You have to terraform the locale in which you find yourself–bloom where you’re planted, as it were–in order to allow the Lord to come around with […]

Patrilocal

“Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.” (John 20:17, emphasis mine) I believe that if we truly knew and therefore walked in this […]

Making an Entrance

“Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, ye shall never fail: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 1:10-11) It’s all about realizing the presence and therefore the kingdom […]
