Pagan Christianity Revisited - Video Blog

Several years ago, I read the book, Pagan Christianity by Frank Viola and George Barna. The book proposes that much of what we are doing in church isn't even in the Bible. I'm going to be honest, this book changed the way I think. It is considered both "controversial" and "revolutionary."

Here is a blurb from the book: "Are we doing Church by the book?" Why do church services seem so similar week after week? Why does the congregation passively sit in pews? Not sure? This book makes an interesting proposal: Most of what present day Christians do in church each Sunday is rooted, not in the New Testament, but in pagan culture and rituals developed long after the death of the apostles. Authors Frank Viola and George Barna support their thesis with compelling historical evidence and extensive footnotes that document the origins of our modern Christian church practices.

here is a video that I made about the book a few years ago.
Hopefully, people will be able to talk about this subject peacefully and respectfully.

My Experience With Demons, and How Jesus Helped Me to Overcome Them

Ephesians 6:12-13

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Demons are real. They are acknowledged all throughout the Bible, and I have had many personal experiences and encounters with the demonic realm. The Bible says that the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, and I can personally attest that demons will do anything in their power to come against our hearts, our minds, and even, at times, our physical bodies.

The good news is that God is bigger and more powerful than any demon, and the same Spirit that lived in the disciples now lives in us. God has not changed. He is the same, "yesterday, today, and forever," and as Christians, Jesus gives us victory and authority over demons.
Over the course of the next few weeks, I am going to be sharing countless testimonies of thing that Jesus has shown me during times of intense and extreme spiritual warfare. 

My goal in all of this is simply to help others who may be suffering from things such as anxiety, depression, and addiction. The message that I have for you is that we are more than over comers in Christ Jesus who gives us strength. 

I have found that the name of Jesus is powerful when it comes to defeating the darkness. One does not need a title or a position in leadership to cast out a demon. One only needs a willingness to follow Jesus. 

First, here are some links that may help someone. They are from a video series by Doug Perry. Doug Perry is a minister in Liberty, Missouri. He sold his successful business to start a ministry and run a homeless shelter. He has given away millions of pounds of food, and has helped countless people to get free from demons and demonic influence.Click here to read Doug's testimony. Doug's videos have helped me, but please note that just because I post videos from someone does not mean that I agree one hundred percent oneverything that the person has to say.  I encourage everyone to test everything against the word, not only in my videos but even things that our leaders tell us.

Everyday Heroes of Hurricane Harvey

This past week has been chaos for the surrounding areas. Flood waters from Hurricane Harvey have ravaged many lives. Thousands of people are without homes, without food, and basic necessities.

My Facebook feed is filled with images of pain and suffering. Despite all of the sadness, however, a group of every day heroes has emerged.

I have seen people clothing the naked.
I have seen people feeding the hungry.
I have seen people sheltering the homeless.
I have seen brave men and women volunteering their time and resources to reach out to others in need.
Through this darkness, I have seen the face of Jesus in my community.

Today, I went to a local church that is being used as a distribution center for evacuees, and I saw cases and cases of donated water. It reminded me of the verse,  "Indeed, if anyone gives you even a cup of water because you bear the name of Christ, truly I tell you, he will never lose his reward."

My heart hurts for those suffering, and yet my heart is full because the people in my community are shining their lights in the darkness. 

Throughout this hurricane, I have seen no racial divides. I have seen no denomination division. 
I have only seen people loving like Jesus.

And That is beautiful, my friends.
