When was the last time?

This blog will be a bit different for those of you who read regularly but I want you to take a good look at yourself in your internal mirror and honestly answer these questions. When was the last time you went to church? When was the last time you read your Bible? When was the…

Grey Areas

“Whatever weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes away your relish for spiritual things, in short if anything increases the authority and the power of the flesh over the spirit, that to you becomes sin, however good it is in itself.” – Mrs. Wesley, mother of John…

Does God call us to Church?

I find all too often people making excuses for not attending church.  Unfortunately, bad church “experiences” have left a lot of people with a bitter taste in their mouths.  The excuse I think I hear most often is “I have my own relationship with God, I don’t feel like I need to go to church.”…

Encouragement?

I recently posted a post that grabbed some attention and I think some of the comments made were valid enough for a full post.  The original topic was concerning the “seeker friendly movement’.  These churches are sprouting up on just about every street corner, lead by Pastors and teachers who are too afraid to preach…
