Think, Christian….Think!!

October 10, 2017

One thing I am constantly teaching my children and encouraging others to do is to think for themselves.  Really think.  To put aside what they have been told by their friends and culture and to logically think through issues on their own.  For example, when speaking of racial issues and distinctions, I have more than […]

Some might find this post a little odd, irrelevant and disturbing (in that order), but I beg of you to stick with me until the end.  I hope when you finish you aren’t disturbed as much as challenged.  What I don’t want is for you to write-off what it says simply because it may go […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
