God being God

We often through various means try to place constraints and limits upon God’s behavior. God will not respond nor will He respect our frail attempts to “box” him in. In other words, sometimes God acts like Manny Ramirez and does things that can only be explained as “God being God.”

June 2013 Newsletter

NOTICE: This newsletter is a little longer than usual. In light of recent events such as the closing of Exodus International and the attack on ministries and churches that deal with unwanted same sex attraction, I felt the need to address a certain component of this issue.

March Madness

March madness is upon us and I don’t see a cure for the illness any time soon. 68 NCAA Division 1 men’s basket ball teams have been selected to play in the “the Big Dance”. Terms such as “bracketology, cinderella team, bracket busters, seeds, and final four” become everyday language around the water cooler at […]

THE JOURNEY OF AN ANONYMOUS PASTOR – Part 4

Have you ever said you’re sorry to someone or to God only because you got caught or because it benefited you to do so? I know that I have. I am not a stranger to false repentance. False repentance is saying, “I’m sorry for ________,” when in reality you plan to do it again when […]

THE JOURNEY OF AN ANONYMOUS PASTOR – Part 3

I was riding my four-wheeler on a warm summer day down some dirt roads when I found the magazine. I found it at the Circle, a local spot for beer parties; it was just a clearing in the woods off a gravel road. I liked going there because I got to bust the beer bottles […]

Testimony

Lance Armstrong has vehemently denied, lied, pledged, sworn and promised for years that he had never used PID’s. He “threw under the bus” his closest friends and teammates when they confronted him with allegations of his doping. We now hear of tearful confessions before his supporters and Oprah Winfrey. What does all this mean? Does this represent a man who is in true repentance from his sins? Is this all so-and-tell theatrics in order to gain approval or reputation? Has his guilt and shame caused his “bones to waste away” because he kept silent for so many years? There may be only one person who can answer the questions regarding Armstrong’s confession.

Prince William and Kate Expecting First Child

Year after year the Israelites waited for this grand pregnancy and birth of this mighty King. They had dreams and aspirations for this Mighty God ruler. They envisioned a glorious announcement and birth that included much fanfare and would create envy and respect in the eyes of all other rulers and nations. They knew this child would want for nothing and all the nations would bow before Him. They waited and times got tough. There were 300 years of no word from God through His prophets. Had God forgotten his people?
