God and sinners reconciled II

A large portion of the evangelical Church, including Pentecostals and Charismatics preach a message of condemnation rather than Good News for sinners. As I wrote in the first part of this message my friend’s grandfather told him that he, the young grandson,  is a son of the Devil. This conversation came about the same day as I Continue Reading

God and sinners reconciled

I don’t make a habit of sharing my faith in the workplace anymore. It can be a tad annoying for people trying to do their job when a zealous Christian is preaching their Gospel at them! But occasionally I get triggered into it, yesterday was such a time. A young man mentioned to me that his Grandfather Continue Reading

For WE are the circumcision

My brother Paul would not be popular in today’s Christian churches….in fact he isn’t popular. You see, Paul opposed those from his old camp at every turn and at every city he came to.

That old man has been crucified with Him and has been buried with Him…that is where my old man is….and yours….dead and Continue Reading

Yom Kippur approaches

Yom Kippur begins tonight at sundown 18th Sept. In the days between Rosh Hashana- Jewish new year and Yom Kippur- observant Jews spend time repenting of their sins. These days are known as the days of Awe. This introspection is meant to bring a sense of awe and reverence for God on the most holy day of Continue Reading

Don’t be entangled again

There has been a change of Covenant between God and man which is not based upon our ability to obey His laws but upon His promise. When we start being badgered into whether or not we are holy or whether or not we are being obedient to God we are about to be entangled with a heavy Continue Reading
