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. What is your response to this question? What criteria are you using to support your position?…

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. Here we all will discover that three major factors contribute to our identities if not designs: How the Creator design us, how human culture shapes and molds us and the distortion that sin plays in our human experience.…

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.…

What Does The Lord Require of You?

The essential tenets of the foundational message of the Gospel, though it is both good news and good tidings of peace; forgiveness, righteousness, present and eternal salvation in Christ, the Gospel message has and will continue to be very disdained and rejected by most of humanity.…

The Most Compelling Way to Follow The Master

What would drive a Godfearing man to travel nearly 900 miles with his two sons, taking several weeks before arriving in Jerusalem just in time to celebrate Passover?

Why were you unexpectedly pressed into service by the local authorities, to walk behind The Master, requiring three of Jesus The Nazarene’s disciples to record your noble act in the New Covenant?

Take Not Your Holy Spirit From Within Me!

The most profound indication of the Love of God that has been gifted to humanity is the indwelling and ministry of the Holy Spirit within the inner-spiritual life of each seeker of absolute truth. This blessing was granted when Jesus from Nazareth implemented the only divinely effective methodology to deal with the impact that sin has on the world conditions and the wicked condition of the human heart during and prior to the end of this evil…

Placing All Trust Under The Shadow of Thy Wings

If ever there is a greater need for God’s active intervention in our human lives, now is that time! For those who delight in seeking and then becoming a benefactor of our Heavenly Father’s promises, you will not have to look beyond the Books of Psalms.  The Psalms have recorded some one hundred and twenty-seven mentions of the Most High coming down to help the helpless and those who are in covenant with Him.

The Manna From Heaven That Gives Life To The World

The Bread of Life
This opening scripture is…

Seeking Sanity within a Culture of Insanity

How is it that we as a supposedly sane and civil modern society, continue to tolerate the multi-generational systemic evil of terroristic attacks on our own citizens? How is it possible that the allegedly most powerful nation in modernity claim to worldwide fame is the termination of its own. And for what reason? What is the just cause for the normalcy of insanity and inhumanity in our psyche and everyday lifestyle?…

How One’s Calling and Mission… Keep you in the Present!

Often I sometimes wonder just how would I have responded and reacted if I was one of the twelve disciples who witnessed Jesus from Nazareth personal suffering, death, burial and resurrection? Would my thoughts, actions, and deeds be any different than the initial twelve that He elected?

In the day of prosperity...but in the day of adversity consider-

Our Creator permits both prosperity and adversity into our human experience for His sovereign purposes, often not revealing the entirely of His desired plan for us at the time of our suffering. Please consider this passage from the Book of Wisdom:

Then My Living Shall Not Be in Vain!

With so much evil, treachery, and narcissism in our culture, all of which seemingly is both admired and rewarded, one may ask the question, what is the purpose and the impetus of being “good?” The answers to this question may be obtained in the story of a certain lawyer who posed a question to Jesus from Nazareth at the advent of His public ministry in Jerusalem centuries ago.
