Original, Saving Faith

I was listening to a song by Keith and Kristyn Getty called Don’t Let Me Lose My Wonder and I found it really put into focus a lot of how I have been feeling lately. You see, when I first became a Christian, I had so much awe, so much reverence, so much thankfulness. But over…

Apology…

So, I have kind of let this blog turn into a place where I rant about politics more often than actually talk about issues in the church. And when I post on issues in the church, they tend to be my own opinions rather than those of the bible. Really, I think the post I…

My Stand On Creationism…

Just so everyone knows, I’m a six-day creationist. I don’t care if the so called “science” that is being funded by million dollar universities, book royalties, and billion dollar federal grants (see where I’m going there?) says I’m wrong. Aside from the fact that there is plenty of creationists who are good scientists, and that…

Those Racist Republicans…

Well, after hearing Debbie Wasermann Schultz talking about how the GOP is racist, I figured I would tackle this issue. First, let’s look at the recent controversy about Sen. John McCain slamming Amb. Susan Rice. As soon as he made the comments about her being “incompetent” and “incapable” of fulfilling her current position, he was…

Thankfulness

“The worst moment for an atheist is when he feels a profound sense of gratitude and has no one to thank” — G. K. Chesterton. I’m not going list here what I am thankful for, because you shouldn’t be reading this. Go and spend time with your family and/or friends. Someone. Even if He’s God.…

On Hostess…

It’s the end of an era. The era of awesome sermon series’. No more lessons from Tim Hawkins on being a Twinkie in a Ding Ding world… Thanks, President Obama.

Hope!

Read Romans 10-11. Two chapters, that’s all. Mitt Romney is not our hope, and neither is the man-who-wants-to-be-god Barack Obama. Our hope is not of this world. Our hope is not in a president, but in the King of Old, the King of the Present, and the King of the Future, King Jesus! Place your…

Humility Bombs

God has a habit of dropping humility bombs on me sometimes. This is one of those times. So what was humbling? Well, this: Evangelicals in America have a tendency to hotly debate for hours on end the nature of Christmas music and when we should begin playing it, all the while ignoring the very world…

Praying… for My Wife

Recently, I decided that I was going to go ahead and take the initiative and start praying for my wife. Of course, I don’t have a wife, and I’m way to young to be married or to seriously consider a relationship of that importance. But that doesn’t mean that I cannot still pray for her.…

What The H*** Just Happened?!?!?!

Sorry for my implied use of language here, if you know me, you know I would never use the actual word in real life/writing. I use it here because there is no other way to explain my shock at what just happened. Before I progress any farther, let me clarify: I know this might come across…
