An apology

hello friends,

to be honest, I'm tired and I don't feel like writing.
But I have much to write anyway.

Yesterday, I was humbled. Let me explain..

I know that, on my blog, I have posted about the numerous ways in which the enemy has literally tried to destroy me. Folks, I have seen and experienced some strange and horrific things in a very supernatural realm. But, through all of these things, I have experienced the Power of Jesus, as my Deliverer.

I recently had a very harsh experience that led me to seek the gift of discernment.
One of the first things that Christ showed upon giving me the gift, was how money is used as a tool of manipulation in many churches and how He is being sold for profit from behind pulpits.


He didn't stop there. He began showing me things that were wrong in our churches..I'll elaborate more on this later, but first, I want to repent for having the wrong spirit in things that I may have said and done..

I'll explain..
Through all of this revelation, I began to do some internet searching.
As Jesus spoke to me about false prophets and led to me to read parts of the Bible that warns of how MANY will be deceived in the last days..

One thing I have that there is a difference between pointing out a false teaching (in a spirit of love) and flat out heresy hunting..

anyhow, I am guilty because

I would often find myself on the internet doing a little personal "heresy hunting" of my own. is what I have learned through all of this..

1. There are many websites that have amazing and good may or may not be written in the right spirit..
You see, anything that is written to try to tear someone apart, rather than help the Body is probably really only going to cause division.

2. I found and even posted a lot of quotes from these sites..While the quotes may or may not be true..I have to ask..was anything taken out of context? Don't get me wrong..There are a LOT of teachings that I am finding that truly take away the Power of the Cross and put the focus on self..However, the last thing I want to do is wrongly judge or wrongly accuse anyone. It's good to question things, as the Bereans, but it is not good to point out wrongs just for the sake of doing so.

Truthfully, finding these sites and visiting them was causing some depression in my life, and causing me to have a critical spirit.
I realize that perhaps...while I wasn't judging the world..there were times..when I may have judged my own Christian brothers and sisters a little harshly. I have to realize that no matter what path we are on..and whether we are Protestant, Catholic, Mormon, Luther, Pentecostal..(or insert one of the other 37,000 Christian denominations here) Anyhow, we are all on the same path to truth..and only way is the way of the Cross..the way of love..and if we aren't showing that to one another..then we are following man and self and not the Holy Spirit.

Guys, the truth is that I don't trust many people anymore. I guess that came with experience.
If you read through the pages of my blog, you will find countless instances of how the enemy has used things that were spoken at a church to try to gnaw at my insides.

The other day I read an interesting article about how, as Christians, we eat our own.. meaning..we are so unforgiving of one another. We judge one another.

Yesterday, I sat thinking of all of the denominations.
I read that there are over 37,000 Christian denominations and most have separated because they disagree on a few key points.
Guys, do we really think God is going to have this kind of separation in Heaven?

Did you know that a denomination is essentially a division? a faction? the kind that Jesus warns about in the Bible..
But does that mean the Jesus wants us all to be "nondenominationals?
I think it means that He is just tired of the fact that we can't get along..all the while using HIs name..
Lately, I have been following a man by the name of Doug Perry.
Yes, there are people who say hateful things about him too..
but one thing that I am learing..
Is that if you have anything important to say..then you will be attacked..
viciously and relentlessly torn down and dragged through  the mud.. my effort to expose false teachings..I have to ask..have I been guilty of attacking anyone?
If so, then I sincerely apologize..because if I have..then it was done in a wrong spirit..and I, like Christ, should want to see everyone make it across the finish line..

Anyhow...One reason I like Doug Perry is because his main goal is get people of all denominations to have church together in the park. The other day I was watching one of his videos, and he pointed out that..if this were to happen..if people of various denominations met to worship the same Jesus that we all claim to know, would we be easily offended because someone else might worship a little differently. He said ..most people would probably focus on the minute differences ( like wine or grape juice? )  rather than focus on the beautiful fact that we are all in the park together..

Why can't people just celebrate Him together?
Doesn't the Bible even say that there is One Body of Believer..and that the Body is those that are being led by the Holy Spirit..
Isn't it funny how many religions of today will take a verse from the Bible, and through all of their interpretations, create something that doesn't even sound like the original verse? Have we essentially put our trust in man and man made systems rather  than in Christ Himself? Is that idolotry? Did Jesus ever tell anyone in His Word to build churches or did He send His disciples into the world?
Is what we have now what the enemy wanted?
To create 37,000 different religions where no one speaks to one another and we all bash one another?
Look at the fruit of what we have done..
Is this world the fruit of 37,000 differnet man made factions..? or is it the fruit of being led into love by a Christ who calls us to self sacrifice?

I think you all get the point.. Lots more later..right now, I just realized areas where I was wrong..but I am at a place..where I am ready to get it right..

Christ, I place my life in your hands and I pray that you lead me into your perfect way. Help me to push self aside more, so that You have more room to grow in me...

a shocking message

Please take the time to watch this shocking video. This is something that Christians need to hear, but a message that is Not being preached by many.
This is convicting and Needs to be heard. It is scriptural and true.

It addresses one of the greatest lies taught in many churches today..the marks of a false prophet, and many more interesting and convicting truths. PLEASE WATCH.

21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’-Matthew 7 -21:23

Are you saved?

"The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons." 1  Timothy 4:1

 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessolonians Chapter 2

a part of the video that touched me....Paul Washer says that American Christianity defines itself as radical by it's t-shirts proclaiming Christ. He says he once saw a young Muslim boy take a bullet in the belly because he refused to renounce Jesus is Lord. That is what radical Christianity looks like....

face value

today's scripture from "Daily Bible Verse."

John 6:27

Do not labor for food that perishes but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.

After, reading this verse, I had an interesting thought.

we all are living in precarious times. We are on the verge of an economic meltdown. Many people speculate that only a few major events are all it would take to send our country and our entire world system into collapse. Imagine food shortages as prices rise..Inflation. Right now, it sounds like mere words but the truth is that I am forced to wonder if these things are and will be a part of our future.
Yesterday, I read an article that says milk prices are going to double next year. What next?

The truth is that we should'nt live in fear. The other day I watched a youtube video by a man that I trust, and he said that hoarding is not the answer.
But, he did say that it wouldn't hurt to do some preparing if we are ever in a place where we need to help take care of others.

Anyhow, in light of all of this speculation..I am glad the God is the One truth on which I can rely.

Note the verse..John 6:27

Do not labor for food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life.. Here He tells us not to fret and whittle away ourl lives in order to get our fill of bread..
He tells us that when we work for His Kingdom, as harvesters of souls, He feeds us..

I think of the George Muller story.
George Muller was never once worried about food. But yet, God supernaturally provided enough food to feed over ten thousand orphans..
and all without asking for a single penny.
How interesting to think that George never joined the workforce as we know it.
Instead, He joined hands with Father, carried out His work by providing for neglected children, and God saw to it that they were fed..every single day..

How interesting..

What would happen if we all began to take the Bible at Face Value? Espesially, the hard the parts where Jesus tells us to share and love one another..
And the parts when He tells us to feed and clothe..and even the parts where He tells us to rebuke, and exort..and to not dine with a brother given over to sin..

Maybe the world would look more like Heaven..

Titus 3:10-11 As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

Galatians 6:1 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.

One step forward, how many steps back?

The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender... Proverbs 22:7

For the past few weeks, I have felt as if ..with every attempt to move forward, I have only been pushed backwards..
a downward spiral..
a slow descent.

I'll explain.. Well, first of all, I am exaggerating.. but once you read this post, you will fully understand what I'm talking about.

As most of you know, I have taken to making video blogs that I post on my facebook page. Well, the other night..I made a video blog about three very strange experiences in my life and what God has shown me through each one of them. The video turned out to be long. I made it in two segments. One segment was over twenty minutes. The second segment was 34 minutes.
Needless, to say, I invested a lot of time and thought into the making of this particular video. I felt it was important and wanted to leave people with a clear image of what I felt God was showing me.
Well, lately, I have been having "technical difficulites" with my "smart" phone.

After making this uber long video, the entire first segment completely goes missing. Seriously. It literally disappeared off of my phone..without a trace..vanished into thin air..

So, I remake the first segment..only this time, I invest thirty more minutes into the video.. Same thing . Disappeared.

The other night, I made Yet another video attempt. This one was warning people of the dangers of astrology, pyschic powers, and things that might "seem" harmless, but nevertheless, harbor the demonic..
Well, can you guess what happened?

So, I have chocked it up to a severe glitch in my phone, and I have decided to start making videos with my camera. Truthfully, however, I am glad that the videos disappeared..because during the course of the last few days, I feel as if God has shown me that the first video might have been misconstrued by some people, and that I really needed to clairify some things before proceeeding to tell the stories of my experiences.

So, it all had a purpose, after all.
But yet, it still seemed like one step forward , while moving nowhere.

Round two of the hamster wheel, came with finances.

In about two months, I was on schedule to be one hundred percent debt free. I have been anticiipating this moment for the course of the past few years. I have diligently worked and have done all I can to smother the engrossing embers of the slavery of debt, and I finally found myself coming out of it's suffocating flames...

Two months..
but then,
Yesterday, as I was drivng to work, my engine failed on my car. I need a new engine and it isn't going to be cheap.
My initial reaction was unbelief.. Unbelief turned into disgust.. I even had the audacity to  briefly wonder why God would allow my engine to self destruct.
I thought of all of the times that i had given and been faithful..and, for a quick moment, I half expected some sort of divine intervention.
But I was humbled as I realized some things.
God is not there to do my bidding. He sent His son to die for me. That is enough. To expect money to fall from the sky like rain, is enough to equate God to a finanical genie.
Third, It is only a hunk of metal.
It is not the end of the world.
Life goes on, and God is good..
Fourth, the reason the engine failed in the first place is my fault. Yep, I didn't tend to it the way that I should have..I neglected routine maintence. The engine is man made. They fail, as do all things created with the hands of men.

I regret ever even playing the pity card even for a moment.

And yesterday, God showed up for me through every helping hand and gracious smile. I am fortunate enough to have family who is going to let me borrow a vehicle until mine gets fixed. I had coworkers drive to meet me in the predawn hours in the see if they could be of any assistance.

It's metal. I think of all of the families and people grieving over important things, and I am saddened that a blown up piece of man made steel could affect me in any way, shape, or form.

What's another few months of debt?
Big deal if I get pushed back..even when trying to move forward?
maybe sometimes, God pushes us back to keep us humble, and to allow us to see full circle..
To remind us, that "things are only things" and the most valuable things can be found in Him and in family and friends


on another note, today I had the honor of typing up a newsletter for women in prison.
I cry everytime I read their stories. They humble me and allow me to see how vast is God's Grace..

I think of the verse, "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy." I also think of the verse that says, "let mercy triumph over justice.."
Do you notice that when something goes wrong or someone does something that we deem offensive or hurtful, our first reaction is for a good dose of "justice."
But when we are merciful, we too, will receive mercy.
Let mercy be your heart's cry.. Seek the Father and ask Him to give you a heart of mercy.

A part of the newsletter that I found inspiring is how God is delivering these women from smoking through fasting and prayer. At a prayer meeting, they left thier lighters and cigarettes on the alter and haven't smoked since.

 Anyhow, I want to share two poems written by a woman in prison. Her name is Krystal Jordan.

Do you know what it’s like..
To never want to be alive?
Into the great abyss to want to dive?
To wonder why the world is such a rotten place?
Or why anyone would want to be in this rat race?
Do you know what it’s like..
To  be a little girl with monsters in your bed?
To be 26 with their images still inside your head?
To always need a place to hide?
For no one to ever be on your side?
Do you know what it’s like…
To be beaten black and blue?
But never able to say who?
To listen as your siblings cry?
To watch your sister die?
Do you know what it’s like…
To have a mom that didn’t  care?
To have a dad that was never there?
To have to get high so you can be numb?
For your best friend to be a bottle of rum?
Do you know what it’s like..
To be too blind to really see?
To be held captive and never be free?
Do you know what it’s like…
To be me?
Krystal Jordan, 2010

“A New Me”
Do you know what it’s like…
To be completely blind to the me you’ve all seen?
Then all of a sudden see with eyes so keen?
To think you’ve given up on life, then be filled with faith?
To have written upon your heart, all the Lord saith?
Do you know what it’s like…
To be drowning in sorrow and strife?
To be saved by grace and given everlasting life?
To walk with Jesus hand in hand?
Like the ocean and the sand?
Do you know what it’s like…
To really want to be alive?
Into the Father’s mercy to want to dive?
To no longer need to run or hide?
To know the Great I Am is forever on your side?
Do you know what it’s like…
To be so in love you can no longer live on a whim?
For your greatest desire to be to live only for Him?
For the hand of the Almighty to collect all of your tears?
To be given the power to overcome all of your fears?
Do you know what it’s like…
To know God’s son died for you, to become a mediator?
So that your relationship could be restored with the Creator?
For your Spirit to quicken and recognize what’s true?
To be made completely new?
Do you know what it’s like…
To know, to believe, to finally be free?
Do you know what it’s like…
To be me?

Vision of True and False Revival

This is an interesting article that I found from the website

I am interested in your thoughts and opinions.  It is a man's vision of true and false revival. I feel as if God has shown me some of the same things lately so that is why I am posting this..

Test all things..

VISION of TRUE and FALSE REVIVAL - Patrick Ersig
PDF Print E-mail
-by Patrick Ersig.

Here is the account of a vision from God that I received regarding true and counterfeit revival. This vision occurred on March 4th 2006.
Everything was black and I saw one person walking at a semi-brisk pace. Not fast walking, but a slight cadence above normal pace.
Walking with purpose. This person was walking straight and sure - upright and strong - solemn and serious, like a revolutionary  - a warrior - a light to darkness. I then saw a couple more people and then others in the distance and they were bright and shining against the blackness that was all around. They all walked the same way - solemn and serious and the Lord spoke and said, "These are my remnant who are walking in holiness, righteousness, obedience, brokenness and utter submission to MY WILL - watch what I am doing Patrick." Then I saw the individuals begin to unite in small groups of two to three at first and then more came and the groups grew to five and even ten and the light intensified greatly. It was beautiful like a sunset over the mountains or a sunrise on the ocean, a rose in full bloom. What I saw next made me burst into tears and sobs to the point that I couldn't continue to describe what I was seeing. My wife keep saying "What?!, what is it? What to do you see?!" After a few  minutes a was able to control the weeping to explain what I saw happening. As the Lord was drawing together His remnant into these small groups the power God came down - like in the book of Acts - the lame were walking, the blind were seeing, the deaf were hearing, (literally and figuratively) and persecution fuelled the fire! This end time HOLY and RIGHTEOUS remnant of serious and solemn warriors and revolutionaries walked in the deep darkness of America and her backslidden lukewarm churches with apostolic glory and power not seen since the book of Acts - to proclaim the true Gospel of Jesus Christ - repentance and holiness and freedom from sin!

The Lord spoke and said, "This is the revival that I am bringing about and it starts with the individuals who have been called out to personal revival and are walking straight and sure - upright and strong - solemn and serious, like revolutionaries, warriors, lights to darkness. My remnant is walking in holiness, righteousness, obedience, brokenness and utter submission to MY WILL and I am drawing them together."
Then the vision switched.
Now I saw what looked like a dimly lit movie or a video shot with poor lighting. I saw clips of people dancing and shaking. I saw people falling down, shouting, jumping, and singing. There were huge multitudes rather then the few and many, many were coming in large groups that filled large auditoriums and stadiums instead of small groups of individuals being drawn together. Even some of the lights that were in the first part of the vision were drawn to this part of the vision. I saw dancing and clapping, shaking, shouting, strong and powerful emotionalism and sensationalism.  Soulish and fleshy spirits claimed to be the Holy Spirit. Great miracles abounded - signs and wonders. People proclaimed, "This is the revival we have been waiting and praying for!! -This is the revival we have heard prophesied!!! - This is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit - a great move of God!" But the Lord spoke and said, "Patrick this is not from me - this is from Satan - it is a counterfeit!! And many will be fooled and tricked by this clever deception from the enemy!"
Then the vision switched again.
Now I saw both visions side by side - split screen, so to speak.
They both grew in intensity at an equal rate - as the true would grow in power, the false would grow in numbers and as the true would grow in numbers, the false would grow in false signs and wonders. The Lord spoke and said, "This is not a vision of the future, but this has already begun and will grow as the days pass.
I am doing this now and the enemy is coming against it at this very moment."
The Lord is bringing about an end times revival of which the like we have never seen and it begins with you. The Lord is calling you to be separate, to holiness and righteousness unto the Lord and to walk in obedience and utter submission to His will. Be free from sin, be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect, be dead to flesh and alive IN Christ. Walk sober and solemn and serious before the Lord with a reverent and holy fear of God. If you are looking and waiting for some big corporate outpouring of emotionalism and signs and wonders you are going to miss the coming revival. The revival starts with you! Seek the Lord and press into Him closer everyday. Allow the Blood and Grace of Jesus to break the bonds of your flesh and produce Holy and Righteous living in your life. Ask the Lord to show you what it is in your life that is keeping you from that which is perfect - no matter how small or how painful; ask the Lord to expose everything that is keeping you from being closer to Him and bring Glory to Him and His kingdom and deeply renounce all that He shows you.
Live your life as a living sacrifice - a living drink offering poured out before the Lord for His glory and honor. There are many things that are cultural, societal and religious that keep us separated from God and walking in His Spirit. Pray for God to bring these things to light and put them to death no matter how hard it may be. If you don't realize that the revival the Lord is doing begins with you individually, then you are going to miss it! The Lord is calling you today, repent for your lukewarmness and your lackadaisical attitude toward sin in your own life and those who are perishing and plunging into hell all around you everyday! The Lord is calling you today to allow the Blood of Jesus and the grace of God to produce holiness and rivers of righteousness in your life that you maybe salt to a decaying world and light to the darkness that prevails. What will you do? The Lord is calling you right now to make up your mind to love Him with all your heart, mind, soul and strength, take up your cross, die to self and follow HIM - forsaking ALL and seeking after Him with all that you are and have. Come out and be separate in holy, righteous obedience unto God!
WARNIG - DO NOT be fooled by these sensual, emotional counterfeits that are and will be popping up, that these people and churches call "revival". IT IS A TRICK FROM THE ENEMY! When you hear that "revival" has broken out in the next town or the next state or even in your own city - please remember this warning.
There will be much singing and dancing and shouting and many things will sound as though they are true. There will be great surges of emotion that will cause people to fall down and jump and shout, cry and weep but this is not from God. Many will be crying out in joy, "Peace, peace".   But God's Servants will have discernment
above and beyond any gift, and a willingness to die than lie - despite the increase of signs and wonders from all of the counterfeit moves around them in the 'churches'. If the "revival" you are in is not serious and reverent, holy and righteous, and the Love and reverent fear toward God are not the only things you see, then RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, and warn everyone you know. These spirits are strong and extremely powerful - get out of the building and don't be fooled by the signs and wonders. Please, I am begging you to remember this, for I know that there will be many who are fooled and even (if possible) drawn away from the real to the counterfeit, but I also know that there will be some who read this warning and remember it and are spared. The true revival army will look like small bands of revolutionaries or Special Forces with an end times mission to complete and Satan's counterfeit will resemble a band of wild Indians or tribal warriors dancing shouting battle cries.
The true revival army will attack the enemy at its stronghold, sin - their mission will be the souls of men through the power of the Holy Spirit - they will be concerned with setting people free from the bondage of sin through the message of the cross and will watch strongholds of sin topple. Satan's counterfeit will go after places and methods of sin - they will try to legislate morality and get laws changed, which results in forced morality and no salvations. God's army will seek to save that which is lost in the streets and alleys - Satan's army will try to change the laws to prevent sin but result in the salvation of no one. "Whosoever loves his life shall lose it.
Whosoever loses his life for MY sake, shall find it."
Satan you are on notice! God is preparing a revival army that is going to tear down the strongholds of your kingdom and Jesus is preparing a bride for Himself that is spotless and pure!
God is calling to make a decision right now - what will you do?!

Tonight, the tears came..a tribute to the lives lost at Sandyhook Elementary, Newtown Conneticut

Today, the tears finally came.
Ever since the massacre at Sandyhook Elementary, I have felt immense sadness. I have felt disgust at the senseless act of violence that brought mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and entire families to their knees.

I have felt pity and compassion and hurt and all sorts of other emotions.
But today, the tears finally came.

sadly, violence is so prevalent in our society, that I fear that we are becoming numb. Mass shootings are getting to be a daily occurance.

How many this week? this month? this year?

Yesterday, I read that Westboro Baptist Church is taking their hatred to the families and community of grieving parents and a devastated community.
I literally wanted to book a plane ticket to Conneticut and use myself as a human shield to block the roads. I felt so angry that a community's grief could be mocked and mimicked..all under the guise of God.

I read about how the community was planning on dressing up as angels and using their wings to sheild the families and the hurt and broken from the rants and taunts of the Westboro hate mongers.

A few weeks ago, I watched a video on facebook..It was a video of a troup of people who went into the mall to sing Christmas carols. They mall goers were stunned and watched in awe as angelic voices filled the busy spaces.

Today, I thought about the power of music. I thought about the power of love. I thought about Mrs. Jeanette. Mrs. Jeanette was my sister in law's mother. She was murdered. I remembered her funeral.
Voices rose out of the darkness to sing amazing grace. I felt like God was saying, In all this darkness, I am here. I am the light that emerges in chaos..

Tonight, I watched a video of children singing, Silent Night, on Saturday Night Live...Sleep in heavenly peace..
I saw the faces of twenty innocent children on facebook and all across the news. I heard the voices of angels singing..
I see the world coming together in love.. people dressing up as angels to offer solace from the hate..

and tonight,
the tears came.
Tears for all those who have ever lost a loved one to senseless violence and hatred.
Tears for the twenty six slain in Conneticut..beautiful children and teachers with names..

Tonight, our president gave a speech. Although I didn't see it..I heard about it..

"Suffer not the little children, and let them come unto me.. For the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.." Jesus..

Tonight the tears came..and it wasn't from the suffocating violence, it was from the overwhelming acts of love.. and from the reality of loss.. but if we think with minds eternal..then life never ends.. For those who are in Christ yields and it surges into forever..

These are only a few of the faces..

Sigh. Today I am both sick and heartbroken. I keep looking at my boys and thanking God for them. I also keep thinking of the parents today who got a phonecall and were told that their children won’t be coming home from school today. How would one even begin to cope with something like this? How? Yesterday, I went to see the movie, Lincoln with my mom. A part of me wondered if a madman wasn’t goi...
ng to whip out an AK and shoot us during the theater scene.. Even walking through the grocery store, I occasionally half expect to see a crazed lunatic in a bullet proof vest emerge with a semi from the fruit aisle. I don’t live in fear, and yet I realize that this is the world that we live in. It’s sad. I don’t even want to discuss gun issues and laws. Because To me, ,this is a heart issue. Many people are sick. We talk bad about one another, we yell at one another..we are a road rage type of people. These days I am seeing so much anger. We think the world revolves around us..”our needs and wants..” Even our ‘gospel” reflects our behavior. Many of our churches have traded in the Jesus, who came to serve, with the Jesus of hatred and self love. We have traded in the Jesus who taught self denial, with the Jesus who is only concerned with procuring a “nice lifesyle” for ourselves. The result is unprecented greed and a spoiled nation who is quick to point the finger. Don’t we find it ironic that we are fighting terrorism, and yet our people are turning the guns on one another? It’s sad. And even if we aren’t pointing a gun at someone..we are quick to shoot others with our words.

Where is our love? Is what happened today a reflection of what we are becoming? We need to see less denominational hatred and more love..We need to see less self love and more service. We need to serve one another in love the way christ called us to do..instead of judging the poor and those we disagree with.. Christ came to show us that love changes things. He came as the Son of God to teach us that, and yet the message often seems to fall on deaf ears. More on this later.. Love you guys, sorry for my rant..I’m just upset. I know that this doesn’t apply to everyone, but it applys to many.. I once read that the greatest cause of athiesm is Christians who claim to believe in God with their lips, but deny Him in their lifestyle… I know that this isn’t a “belief” issue.. This isn’t about what someone believes..this is about love and the lack of love we are seeing..

Terribly Interesting: Forgotten God by Francis Chan

Terribly Interesting: Forgotten God by Francis Chan: I could write a blog about every chapter of this book. It is rich and full. There are many things I knew and things I had knowledge of. With...
