Regarding Christmas…

This isn’t long, but I pray that this season find all of you who read this in good health. Merry Christmas!

The Living Message of Christ

Nativity-29Some people say that we shouldn’t celebrate at this time of year because this time of year is from a pagan celebration which the church used to bring the pagans into it. While that may be true, the birth of Jesus should be celebrated, even if He wasn’t born during this time of year. Why do I say that? Because, during this month it is too cold for shepherds to be sleeping in the field at night and traveling wouldn’t have been easy at this time of year either. Many scholars think that His birth was likely during September, who knows.

The point is that a person on the Trinity came to us as a baby, grew up in his time and played like all children do, learned His earthly father’s trade and learned from His Heavenly Father. He fulfilled prophecy and became the Messiah that He was sent to…

The atheist thoughts on Christianity that literally blew my mind

Running The Race

*Wrote this several months ago, never published it.

“Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.”
-Mark 13:13

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
-1 Corinthians 1:18

As a Christian blogger, and Christian who is generally very vocal about my faith in all situations, I regularly have conversations with atheists who chose to deny God.

To make my point clear, this post is not about atheists who sincerely struggle with faith or those who have sincere, well thought out, and logical (to them anyway) reasons to believe the way they do.

This is about atheists who are members of a cult of motivated, unapologetic, prideful, scornful, arrogant, and merciless deniers of universal truth.

It’s about the vigilant defenders…

Can’t Argue With Kids

Kids do say the darnedest things.

Morning Story and Dilbert

March 17, 1997

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children
while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each
child’s work.

As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she
asked what the drawing was? The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.”
The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God looks
like.” Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing,
the girl replied, “They will in a minute.”

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with
her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to
“honor” thy Father and thy mother,” she asked, “is there a
commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and
sisters?” Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of
a family) answered, “Thou shalt not kill.”

An honest seven-year-old admitted calmly to her…

On that night….

This is the message that needs to be told to all men. Amen!

The Living Message of Christ

Long ago there were shepherds keeping watch over their flocks and the angel of the Lord came to them and the glory of the Lord shone round about them and they were sore afraid. The angel said to them, “Fear not, for I bring you tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. This shall be a sign unto you, that you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.”

What would you think if an angel announced this while you were out camping somewhere? Many people would wonder what might have been in their food? How did I have such a vision as this? Many people would’ve hidden under a bush and then run off, had the sky filled with angels or even just…

Atheists should be thankful they die

Enough said on the subject.

It’s one thing for atheists like Richard Dawkins and his minions to rail incessently against the supposed horrors of all things religious.

It’s quite another to claim, as new atheists often do, that godlessness is not only true but that being born of nothing, for nothing, only to return to infinite nothing is a good thing for humanity.

“We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia.

Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people.

Time is….

Time is many things to many people. There is never enough of it. Our time on Earth is too short, or hard or stressful. Time is…what you make of it. It can be rich and full of life and love or it can be full of pain and suffering and heartache. The conditions that we use to describe our time make the measure of it different for everyone regardless of where you might live.

Time is important and it is important for different reasons for everyone. A doctor or lawyer makes their living by “hours billed”. Many of us are paid hourly, so our time is worth a lot to us because every hour is part of our pay check. But, what about your time with your family? What about spending time with God every day? Are these important to you? Your family should be very important and so should your time spent with God. Many people today don’t think that God is important let alone whether spending time with Him would be. Some don’t even believe that He exists at all.

Consider this: time did not begin until it was created and since He is the Creator, then He started it all. God is in control, yet people don’t believe it because they see so much evil and pain in the world. The thing about this is that Satan is the prince of the air on Earth and the one who has many beings, former angels, who can do his bidding and help cause all of the evil and pain in the world. God allows these things, but He is also working in the background to make things work out.

We live our lives according to the clock, in our own bodies as well as that on the wall. The time that it takes to write this is important not only to me but to God, because He is the One who gives me the words to write just as He gives the words to me for my sermons every week. We are important to Him because God enjoys the fellowship that He can have with us, if we will only give Him our time. Even just a little bit of our time is really all that it takes. We don’t have to spend hours chanting and swaying for Him to notice us, He already knows where we are, what we are doing and saying and whether or not we have given our lives to Him.

Time is a gift from God, your day and your night is a gift from Him. Everything that we have from our job to our family and our friends is a gift from Him as well so we need to treat them as such.
