Human nature has us seeing the flaws in people fairly easily. It's like there is this "thing" in us that automatically searches out the flaws in others. It's not a good thing, Jesus addressed it in different ways, using the plank parable amongst many other teachings on being "self righteous or pious." His entire time … Continue reading Give Me A Heart Like Yours Lord!
Over an absolutely delicious and somewhat strong cup of joe this morning I am meditating on 1 John 3:23-24 “And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and … Continue reading Believe & Love : Our Christian Manifesto
This last conference, Summit III (December 10-13, 1986), drafted the Chicago Statement on Biblical Application. With this statement the proposed scholarly work of ICBI has been completed, for the doctrine of inerrancy has thus been defined, interpreted, and applied by many of the leading evangelical scholars of our day.

We are instructed to have a prayer closet and … Continue reading Intimacy With Christ : Heart To Heart
I have been extra busy doing the whole fall gardening chores. Lots and lots of tomatoes still coming in and I have been literally giving away basketfuls. The prolific squash season is still producing and that too has been over abundant and a blessing to a few different families. Crookneck, summer, butternut, acorn, spaghetti, zucchini, … Continue reading Soup Beans & Sunshine

You are literally plugging … Continue reading …And The Word Was God
EVEN JESUS CHRIST WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE RELIGIOUSLY MINDED MEN OF HIS TIME. LET THAT SINK IN, EVEN JESUS WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEM, AND HE WAS PERFECT!
It is extremely easy in the political, social, and societal climates we now live in to feel hopeless and lost. Please remember that God is Sovereign, in his loving kindness he gave us his Word to be our compass, and when we feel lost it will always point us towards him and get us back … Continue reading How To Remain Sane In An Insane World
