Well, I began my graduate level theological studies and immediately I was bombarded with the spirit of pride. Now as I have fought off that beast, for the mean time, I find myself frustrated with many strange and beautiful perspectives that challenge me and some perspectives that just flat out frustrate me. This morning in my intimateContinue reading “My Heart is Like a Comb Over”

Evangelism and Prayer
What is the first thing you thing of when you hear that word… EVANGELISM? Well, I won’t speak for you, but I think of an overweight man in downtown Charlotte wearing cowboy boots and telling us all that “you all goin’ to hell”, or I think of a very strange man, boldly handing out tracts,Continue reading “Evangelism and Prayer”
Pistol Packin’ Christian?
Hello all, when writing for this Blog I try to be as out of the way as possible for many reasons. One being that I don’t really matter in the big scheme of God’s eternal plan and two, exposing myself to the entire internet world might not be the smartest idea. But since information likeContinue reading “Pistol Packin’ Christian?”
Revival? Do You Really Want It?
Oh Lord, bring revival… Lord, we need revival…. revival this and revival that. This has been the prayer and trademark of most of the conservative traditional Churches of my time.

The Return of the Martyr
Amos 2:11 I also raised up prophets from among your children and Nazerites from among your youths…But you made the Narerites drink wine and commanded the prophets not to prophecy. What is it about the human race that permeates peer pressure. Every action, every thought has every thing to do with influencing others. We sayContinue reading “The Return of the Martyr”
Heirs and Slaves
Recently I was reading in Galatians and this passage stood out…”…as long as heirs are underage they are no different from slaves although they own the whole estate.” The context of this scripture is about how Christ came to make us sons and daughters, we are not held in captivity to the law, but given totalContinue reading “Heirs and Slaves”
A Kingdom Without a King
Yep, its that self hating topic again why I hate the Church… Wow that sounds harsh. Ya know, what ever happened to loving God with all your heart, mind and soul, and your neighbor as yourself. How easy can it be people. Why must we assess everything we read or see, why must we compareContinue reading “A Kingdom Without a King”
