    Five ways to improve your understanding of the Bible
    Five ways to improve your understanding of the Bible1) Know the author. Having a relationship with God permits us to have an inside incite to His writings. 2) Talk to the author. Having consistent conversations with God helps us to understand how He speaks and how He directs....

    Blame shifting never delivers the results it promises
    Blame shifting never delivers the results it promisesBlaming our problems on others is hardly new, Adam and Eve choose to do exactly that at the beginning of time and we have not stopped since. The influence others have on our lives is real and it does affect how we think and even how we act but it...

    There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13
    There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13Throughout our lives there are times when this statement rings in our ears. Times when we are the one dropping everything to run to the aid of a friend and times when they are doing the same for us. One friend of mine put it this way. “You find...

    Spent air: the problem with blogging
    Spent air: the problem with bloggingThe problem with blogging is that you must produce content and that results with a need to produce when you have nothing to say. But write you must so write we do. This writing with nothing to say fills pages and pages on media sight after media...

    Cutting through the noise and the pain
    Cutting through the noise and the painWhen looking at the current state of America and our extreme fall from the goals and standards set by our fore fathers, it is evident that as a Church we have failed to cut through the noise and the pain of the world to reveal the truth of God....

    #9 No I did not take you for an atheist William, simply because you hate corrupt institutions. I have witnessed corruption in the churches since a was a small child. I was trying to find out where you are coming from, that's all.

    #15 @William VanDorin that tells me you don't know Jesus personally. He does have a sense of humour!

    #14 What a lively mind you have William! Like that! Oh dear I keep pressing Return and the comment goes on without my finishing it. I don't think you are a gnostic, judging from your comments. We are all fallen - which is why Jesus chose to carry our sins in His own body to the Cross, so anyone who is in Him can be raised up with Him. As for Hell: the place of final punishment will only come into being after the Final Judgement so no one is there yet. I have been considering writing a book about Hell, because I don't think it's entirely negative. No room to go into that really, but if you read Revelation, you find that it is only immediately after the wicked are thrown into the lake of fire that God is able to wipe away the tears from each eye, and only then it says "there will be no more death, nor crying etc" But many really evil people will have been saved by Jesus because they repented and thanked Him for taking their sins. "The Son of Man has authority on earth, to forgive sins". Jesus is "The Rock of Offense" as well as the Rock of Sanctuary. Some people are offended that God would "send" people to hell (they go there all by themselves and refuse to be saved!), and some people are offended that God can wipe away the sins of someone who has committed horrible crimes. Personally, I love Jesus and I'm 100% on His side.

    #18 Brian I was not unaware of the concept behind your words simply confused on why you added them to the conversation. You did not appear to be adding nor drawing a resolution. Did I miss you point? (It would hardly be the first time.)

    Thesis * AntiThesis -> Synthesis. Two diametrically oppositional forces set into conflict for the purpose to advance an agenda to the next landing state of control, submission, subversion and slavery. It is as it always has been. (Lenin adds necessary killing to the equation - and Obama has updated it with digital coverage of the events)
    The current Alinsky meme is Problem * Conflict -> Resolution. I cannot show you the game, but when you see it - it cannot be unseen.

    #16 Hello Brian. I must admit to my confusion but I am not sure how your comment fits into this discussion. Not complaining mind you just curious of your intent.

    I believe the Church vs State construct is one of the earliest and most relevant versions of the Hegelian Dialectic. And looking at the body count and ideology from each, I am undeterred in that assessment.

    I would like to believe Christ had a sense of humor, you know not like a stand up because that would simply be heretical, but able to pull of a good practical joke on occasion. Come on John, It's not that deep! LOL!

    #13 Yes it was Vivian, I was not wearing my glasses. Apologies, allusions of youth you know! We all bear our cross of thorns, damn I may be one of the fallen. Some how I still feel I must have virtue and faith in a rather cynical fashion. Guess that would make me a Gnostic... Oh hell I am so confused. Say do you think there really is a hell? I am rather divided on the matter, as I know many who have earned their spot, and would hate to see them denied their eternal torture. Wow, seems kind of harsh, but hell it's doctrine!

    #3 Greg it was not a quote, but rather simply a statement which it shall remain... unless some one quotes me on it. Feel free! LOL!

    #6 You are mistaken Wendy as I do know Jesus. In response to the love and compassion he preached we nailed him to a cross, did we not? Of course most will defend with it was them, not us! I will join any individual proposing love, peace and nobility of the human spirit. Did you take me for an atheist simply due to my admonishment of a corrupted institution. Did Christ not have the same complaint when he threw the money changers out? Faith is grand, blind faith is often fatal.

    #3 William that sounds like a quote, if it is who said it. You have peeked my interest.

    #3 William VanDorin interesting comment coming from - I take it - someone who does not know Jesus? Am I right? The comment interests me because I'm wondering if you would turn TOWARDS an individual follower of Jesus who had no worldly influence, but lots of love, warmth and authenticity?

    #2 Donald I do agree that small acts define us more than the large acts. So yes they would indeed create an since of warmth.

    When churches are reduced to empires we must turn away for they are worshiping themselves.

    Amen to this post! Perhaps we could start by being of service? Maybe over time, all of the small acts, those small moments, would lead to a different state of being – a state that helps us cut through the noise and begins a ripple effect that synergizes with countless others. Imagine a state in which service becomes increasingly effortless and honours God. Would that help unveil the truth and let the Lord heal the pain?
