If Bob is convinced that he has no need for a widget, the widget salesman is in for a really, really hard time when trying to sell Bob that widget.  But what if Bob really does need a widget, and needs one badly?  What if the widget will help Bob immensely for the rest of […]

Religion vs. Jesus?

February 11, 2016

0 Comments

This video isn’t my preferred style (I’m not hip enough) and it doesn’t come from exactly my point of view (I’m Reformed Baptist not Lutheran) but I still think it good enough to share.  Hope you enjoy!

Jedi Church Brings a Bit of Shame to the Christian World

December 14, 2015

3 Comments

No, I’m not making this up.  Yes, there is an actual Jedi church based on the fictional Star Wars characters.  The part of this goofiness I find to be interesting is that this organization seems to invoke more devotion in its followers than many of today’s modern professing Christians.  How so?  Well, below is a […]

Contemplative prayer, Centering Prayer or….

November 16, 2015

0 Comments

If you haven’t noticed, there seems to be increasing attention on some of the more ancient prayer practices lately.  Centering prayer, contemplative prayer and meditation are all being discussed now with Christian application in mind.  While some of the authors promoting these ideas (Merton, Keating, etc.) may have some fine-sounding things to say regarding the […]

Are You a Professional Christian? You should be…

Shamelessly stolen from Marc Minter of First Baptist Church, Diana, Texas: “I did not know this until recently, but the term “professional” actually came into use as Protestant Christians argued against any division between things that are ‘sacred’ and things that are ‘secular.’ There are some who believe that these two realms either rarely or […]

I Want What I Want

It amazes me how little thought people give to what they, and their leaders, say and do in these modern times.  For example, in California they have recently been debating the issue of end-of-life options and if legal options should include doctor assisted suicide.  Governor Jerry Brown, when asked to explain his approval of this […]

Christian Voices of Authority

 So have you been following the politics and back-door scheming currently going on in the Roman Catholic Church lately?  Myself, I haven’t been keeping real close tabs on it all, but the general movement of what’s going on has been of some interest to me simply because it has so much to do with theological […]

Christian Worship Music – the Golden Calf?

I originally posted this about five years ago, but the website referenced went down.  With the link now fixed, I thought it might be a good idea to blow the dust off this post and put it out there again: Recently I had an experience that profoundly troubled me.  Visiting a local Church (Southern Baptist, […]

Good (and scary) Foresight and Insight from a Modern Day Preacher

September 7, 2015

1 Comment

This clip is at least 7 years old.  I’m not sure exactly where/when it was filmed, but preacher Paul Washer has amazing insight into the future, although by now some if it can be called history.  The rest of what he says, as scary as it may be, is probably right-on as well.  May God […]
