The Josh Duggar Effect- Trapped by your “Testimony”

Our testimony is never a statement about us but always about Jesus. It should never define us, control us or eliminate grace from our lives. When our past “testimony” controls our ability to be honest and makes our Christian walk a façade, then we are no longer walking by faith but by fear and the approval of others.

The Best Team

The Memphis Grizzlies are the best team in the NBA. I didn’t say they were the most talented, elite, super starred dynasty team. I said they are the best team because they exhibit the qualities that are needed to function as a successful team or unit. The adjectives that could best describe the Grizzlies are […]

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

I am a pastor and I was enslaved to pornography secretly for over 10 years. My story is not unique because I was not molested, abused, abandoned, neglected, raised by crazies or pharisaical parents. My story is simple in that I was exposed to pornography, I liked it, and I wanted to look at it more. Let me tell you more about myself.

Election Time

Romans 5:8 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Election time has finally come and gone after many months of non-stop TV, radio, and printed advertisements. We now know the outcome of local, state, and national elections. We live in a great country where the people truly get to elect their chosen leaders and officials. I wonder what our election results would have been in years past if they had the media coverage we have today. Let’s face it, many of our past presidents were not that attractive, could have lost a few pounds and probably lacked great oration skills. Would we have elected George Washington if we knew all the details of his past? What if TMZ cameras had followed Abraham Lincoln around and critiqued his scraggly beard and ruddy complexion? Would we have deemed him not attractive enough to be our president? When the Israelites chose their first king, they chose Saul because he looked like one. He was muscular, tall, dark and handsome. Saul may have looked like a king but he did not have the heart of a king. When God chose His king, he selected a boy who had a heart that pursued Him and not self interest. Let’s face it, when it comes to choosing anybody, we usually just look at the external appearance.

Wedding Feast Gone Bad

A paradox is a statement, proposition, or situation that seems to be absurd or contradictory, but in fact is or may be true. The heading of the article above contains some paradoxical phrases. “Wedding brawl in the city of brotherly love” appears a tad bit absurd or contradictory. The wedding feast is one where love, commitment and dedication are the primary themes and not tasers, batons, chaos and violence. It was not clear what started this brawl but it was apparent that the over usage of alcohol was a primary and contributing factor.

Bad Call

Jesus had recently raised Lazarus from the dead and the word of this miracle had preceded his entry into Jerusalem. In today’s terminology we might say that his approval ratings were off the chart. Thousands of on lookers gave him a standing ovation and sang his praises. Their expectation was for Jesus to be the one to deliver them from the cruel oppression of the Roman government. At last God had heard their cries and would soon provide justice and fairness for His chosen people. This applause and praise lasted about as long as the approval of the referees.
