I have taken the rule of three for survival, and applied it spiritually. You can survive for 3 minutes without air. You can survive for 3 hours without shelter in a harsh environment (extreme conditions). You can survive for 3 days without water. You can survive for 3 weeks without food - if you have … Continue reading Spiritual Survival: Air, Water, Food, Shelter
We live in a society that encourages pride, greed and lust. There are multi billion dollar industries that do little more than feed all three in the name of "self improvement" or "self help". Should Christians exalt themselves? Is self exaltation ever warranted in the Bible? The short Biblical answer is no and no. We … Continue reading Remember God Resists The Proud
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.
Summit I of the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy took place in Chicago on October 26-28, 1978 for the purpose of affirming afresh the doctrine of the inerrancy of Scripture, making clear the understanding of it and warning against its denial. In the seven years since Summit I, God has blessed that effort in ways … Continue reading The Chicago Statement On Biblical Hermeneutics (1982)
Actions speak louder than words. Is that not one of the truest statements ever made, or what? In our Christian walk it applies perhaps even with greater brevity. Everyday you wake up and go out into the world to be the light of Jesus Christ to a lost and suffering world. The devil wants you … Continue reading A Reproducible Walk With The Lord
This morning over coffee I read in Mathew The Parable of The Sower. (Mathew 13:3-9) According to this parable 75% of the people presented with the Gospel will eventually lose the ability to see it through to fruition. I don't know about you but I am definitely thankful to be in the other 25%. Hearing … Continue reading The Parable Of The Sower : How to Witness Succesfully & Get More People To Christ
Hugh Hefner passed away recently. I remember feeling a sense of terrible sadness for him. I couldn't stand the life he lived, or the abuse it condoned upon women, but I felt a sense of sadness for his soul. I know that if Hugh did not repent before passing he is now in hell. He … Continue reading Hugh Hefner, Stephen Paddock & Me
The world is full of secular garbage anymore. Deception is everywhere. Confusion is at an all time high. Everyone's got an opinion, decisions are made on feelings rather than facts and there are no shortages of know-it-all with soapboxes. I am constantly feeling myself being drawn farther and farther away from the toxicity of the … Continue reading Hiding From The World
