Jesus and Doctor Who

Over the past couple of months I have become what some would called obsessed with Doctor Who.  Why?  I don’t know.  It’s not for everyone I suppose, but there are a few things that I absolutely love about the show.  First of all, the actors are just plain lovable.  Secondly, who doesn’t fantasize about seeing…

Who Do You Say That I Am?

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the…

Hypocrisy and the Church

Ever met a Christian who preaches loud and proud about what NOT to do?  Those that preach the loudest are usually trying to cover the sound of their own sins screaming from within.  The sad truth of it is that our own sins, seen in others, disturb us the most.  I’ve shared on many occasions…

Guest Blogger: Mac Joby – Do You Irritate God

Do You Irritate God? By: Mac Joby Do you? We spend much of our lives getting irritated by others because they don’t do things the way we wish they would. Is their failure to meet our personal preferences reason for our losing patience with them? That’s a rhetorical question because we know that it is…

Expecting the Ridiculous

2 Kings chapter 6 holds within it, quite possibly the most insanely ridiculous prayer anyone has ever prayed.  Here– read it yourself. So he went with them. And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees.  But as one was felling a log, his axe head fell into the water, and he cried…

The Modern Tweeter and the Ancient Farmer

Lately, I have been considering the specific words God chose to use in particular areas of the Bible.  I believe, not only the meaning of the scripture, but, the particular words the Holy Spirit chose are very important.  What has been sticking out most recently are the scriptures referring to sowing and reaping.  I’d say…

Are You A Christian?

In America we teach a lot of wrong doctrine and false teaching.  I’m not here to call anyone out or even bring up the specifics, but I will quote a short verse to let you know Jesus’ thoughts on the subject.  When speaking of the final days on earth, which few would argue are close,…

Short and Sweet: Unfaithful to the End

One of my favorite songs over the last few years has been from a guy named Andrew Peterson.  The song is called Hosea, and I’ve always thought it was disturbing subject matter for a Christian song, but the truth is exposed as we dig into the book of Hosea in the Bible. The book (and…

So, last night my wife and I laid in bed for 3 hours listening to what we thought was a woman screaming at the top of her voice next door. We finally figured out that “she” was drunk and thought it was awesome to hear her own voice echo across the 50 acre lake in…

Last night was one of the most beautiful nights I have ever experienced. If you’ve never been locked up in a church with 32 young adults seeking the face of God for 12 hours through the night, you are missing out on one of God’s greatest blessings. On Feb. 1st, 2013 – AXIS: Young Adults…
