Easter Twist You’ve Never Heard Before

April 8, 2020

I know many of us would say that Easter’s Holy Week is important because it signifies the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Yes, that is all true, but many individuals do not fully understand the grand magnitude or huge significance of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection has for their own lives now. When we believe in Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection, most of us understand that if we put our trust and faith in him and repent of our sins, that the opportunity for eternal life is available to us. That alone is huge, but how many of us fully…

How should Christians talk politics, how does God view Politics

January 15, 2020

Christian Political Blog: How Should Christians talk politics ? How does God view politics? 1 Peter 2: 13-16, says “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by Him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. Show proper respect to everyone,…

Should a Christian attend a gay wedding?

May 3, 2019

“Should a Christian attend a gay wedding?” (AKA) Same Sex wedding.  I have been asked this question a number of times and my response has always been, well why not? Some of the responses that I have received back from individuals are that they don’t support gay marriage and they do not believe that form of life style is blessed by God. They’re also led to believe that if they attend the wedding that the people that invited them would think that they are supporting what they are doing. I then ask these individuals a series of other questions like;…

Do we have a lifestyle of worship?

November 29, 2018

Do we have a lifestyle of worship? I often ask myself, do I have a lifestyle of worship?  When examined by others, do people notice the sweet aroma that God places in my life? True worship manifests itself in action and emanates from a heart for God. God’s presence should be evident in everything we do and having a lifestyle of worship will establish that. David had a heart for God and lived a lifestyle of worship. Pastor Ken Baugh once wrote that “David’s life revealed 5 elements that characterize a lifestyle of worship. Those 5 elements are: Having total…

Excerpts from Chapter 4 God is a Good God from  Conquer Through Surrender Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.” I have found that trusting God completely when moments seem so hard is very difficult to do.  There are so many days where God might seem like He’s a million miles away and holding on doesn’t seem at all possible.  Trusting Him becomes more and more difficult, especially when there’s a tug a war starting to happen within us. We are easily tempted to control our circumstance just so that…

My thoughts on 9/11

September 11, 2018

A photo of a cross from mangled metal taken by Anne Bybee about three weeks after the 9/11 attacks, on the backside of Ground Zero. I write this blog reflecting upon the events of 9/11/01. I was searching on twitter this morning reading about other people’s experience on that day and I found myself thinking of what I was doing and where I was at during those horrific moments.  At the time, I was living in California and received a call from a good friend that lived in GA around 5:55 am PST. He urgently told me to turn on…

Is there life after death? What to know!

September 5, 2018

  I write today with a heavy heart as one my friends has passed away. I, like all who knew him are mourning his loss. Death for me has never been easy; it’s a shock, a wakeup call and has always shaken me to my core. It causes me to simplify everything in my mind and makes me realize what is important and what is not. As I reflect upon my friends life with all the good memories I have had with him, it has once again opened my eyes to realize that life is short. I told my wife…

Can you be gay and a follower of Jesus?

June 30, 2014

As a follower of Jesus’ teaching the question has been asked of me of what my point of view is on people being gay in general, and when pressed further can people be gay and a follower of Jesus. Over the past year I have had many thoughts about this subject, with most of them challenging. Many times I found my focus trying to make sense of it in my mind, which was hard to do for myself not being a gay man. As I mediated, on this topic there were times when I found myself as one of those…

We are in the people business!

February 11, 2014

My thoughts often times escape me when I am not careful to recognize that God is fully in control of all my circumstances. My world as a business owner has a lot of trials and issues that need to be addressed on a daily basis. What I often forget is that my issues and trials are not of my own but that of the Lords. God never said that I am to fix all the daily problems. He tells me to cast all my cares and burdens unto Him for he cares for me (1Peter 5:7) and he will work…

The Draw of Sexual Temptations

December 12, 2013

This morning I awoke to Pastor Skip Hietzeg on the Radio and he was speaking of sexual sin and how the numbers of marital affairs are equal in the secular world as it is in the Christian arena. I pondered what he was saying and reflected on my past and my temptations currently; I would say I believe that figure 100%. The devil and all his tactics to lure us are very great. Every were I turn, on billboard’s, commercial’s, walking down the street; all I see is sex or a reference to it. Pastor Skip went on to say…
