But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

On this Earth Day, rather than worshiping an inanimate rock that doesn't know or doesn't care about you, let us praise and worship God, who gave us the earth because He loves us

To Deceive, if Possible, Even the Elect.

There is a ton of videos on YouTube that show the similarities between Easter and pagan rituals, beliefs, and fables. The saddest part is I have only paid attention to the videos that are from Christian sources and they concentrate on those similarities. Many of these videos concentrate on rabbits,...

imageMy personal health has been waning these past few weeks, but some things will get better soon, but still, I'm sick of being sick. 
Charles Spurgeon on the other hand actually saw the Holy Spirit at work in his maladies. Spurgeon suffered from chronic nephritis, a kidney inflammation similar to...

What does the Holy Spirit not do for you? If you're an NAR kind of charismatic that's a silly question. According to the NAR the Holy Spirit will do anything for you, from teaching you a language that no one (possibly including God) understands to killing you when someone waves a jacket at you....

WWUTT Wednesday - What is Discernment?

Written by

I've been writing a lot about discernment lately, and that's really all I've been wanting to write about. Is this the Holy Spirit moving in me? or is it just that I'm shocked at what I see going on about me? I think it's both.
Maybe I should I say I've been writing about our lack of discernment...

We've Been Warned

Written by

Scripture is filled with warnings about liars. God hates liars. God hates those who tell lies. God cannot lie, the Bible says. He always speaks the truth. He is truth. Satan is a liar. He is the father of lies. They all sort of generate out of his spiritual mind set. We then have to be able to...
