If you are in search of a deeper intimate relationship with our Creator, let me submit to you three disciplines that will enhance your spirituality in a real and meaningful way.

When Being a Christian isn’t Enough!

I quote some most powerful words by Oswald Chambers: “Whenever our Lord talked about discipleship, He always prefaced it with an “IF,” never with an emphatic assertion-“You must.” Discipleship carries an option with it.…

The Most Important Words From My Father

I wish to encourage each man, each father, each follower of The Master, that during this Father’s Day celebration, and the days which follows, to reexamine our very unique spiritual calling. Collectively, each man [each person] must resist the cultural pull of secular humanism at the horrifying possibility of forfeiting our divine purpose and calling in this age. 

The below letter from My Heavenly Father was inspired by my re-reading Acts 17:24-30…

Is America a Christian Nation?

In a recent conversation with a friend, the status of Christianity in America somewhat became a hot discussion item. Between our personal opinions and recent facts about social, cultural and political trends that are impacting our lives, I wanted to see what researchers have to say about this matter.

Growing Into A Spiritual Dwelling Place For God

For most of the month of May, I have been examining this matter of identity and all of the many internal/external factors that mold and shape our sense of self-awareness as relational and functional human beings.  While meditating on some of the newly learned data, I begin wrestling with myself in an effort at listing the top three greatest evil human atrocities that I have witnessed in my lifetime and the destructive nature that these evils placed on the lives of…

When Saying You Are Sorry…Is not Enough!

My Heavenly Father please care and empower those who have suffered losses, while aiding us as a community to understand what our roles and our responsibilities are for those who yet remain. Amen.

In my quiet time, I entertained series of personal introspective thoughts which caused me to demand answers to many very real and pressing realities that deeply troubled me as a human; a father, a man, a citizen of the United States of America, and finally, as a man of…

The Lens of Grace

Not only do humans find freedom, restorative healing, and liberty in The Messiah, the Holy Scriptures are the divine source to seek and rediscover our stolen true identities.

How The Finger of God Reveal The Heart of God

Not everyone during the first century and throughout the generations to follow is able to see this Palestinian Jewish Rabbi in the same light as John and perhaps the billions of current followers of Christ. As was the case in John’s lifetime, many people continue to misuses and thus misapply the Word of God for selfish if not ungodly rationales.

The Absolute Power of Those Who Groan!

Absolute truth’s greatest enemy in this life is those who souls have been enlighted and through deceit and unfaithfulness, they fall away deeply into their very own bottomless, personal enslaved thinking that the individual and the culture is the determining criteria of what is moral as opposed to immoral.…
