I think Fellowship has a branding problem. Growing up, a Church Fellowship meant one thing. The Church was going to buy a whole bunch of fried chicken and everyone with the last name A-M would bring a side dish and everyone N-Z would bring a dessert. I’m all about eating 5 different types of Macaroni … More ReBranding Fellowship
Light has an interesting story arch in Scripture. In the first few verses in Genesis our World starts out in darkness until God says, “Let there be Light.” Now there’s no Sun or Moon to produce that light. God must be emanating that light from Himself. The final verses in Revelation 21 says exactly that. … More God is Light
So I spoke on the Tribulation this past Sunday. (Gutsy move, I know.) It’s so easy to get trapped in the weeds when speaking on such a topic and lose sight of things like “application.” But I wanted to make sure I helped clarify things for people and if I fell short at least give … More Rando Q&A on the Tribulation
There’s implications on this question. Those who hold to the Rapture often point to certain parables to promote their beliefs. Likewise those who don’t believe in a Rapture of the church vehemently disagree with their interpretation. Well I don’t particularly want to enter the theological battlefield of the “Rapture,” I don’t mind trying to be … More In Parables Is It Better to be Taken or Left?
The Resurrection is the great separator, the great divider. The Resurrection either happened or it didn’t. Jesus either died and rose from the dead, or the Bible is lying, and we are believing in a lie. 1 Cor 15 rightfully claims “and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still … More If the Resurrection of Jesus Christ Didn’t Happen, What Did Happen?
This is how we view time. This is our line segment of time. We’re born and we die. This is our life. We can also look at all world history the same way. The segment would be longer, but there was a start to it all and there will be an end to it at … More Geometry and God (Godometry)
The Holy Spirit constantly gets referred to as an “it” or some kind of impersonal force all the time. I can’t remember a time before Star Wars so I don’t know if The Force affected the church’s understanding of the Holy Spirit or if there was always some confusion. But the bottom line is, the … More 7 Ways that the Holy Spirit is Better than The Force
So this week, I watched a 6-year old movie (it was basically black and white, well I guess it was like Technicolor, I could see reds but pretty much everything else was yellowish.) It was Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths. It was a decent, animated comic book movie (there are some great ones out … More Explaining Gnosticism through the DC Universe
Ah the Trinity, every time we explain it, it turns us all into heretics. Don’t believe me. Have you ever used an Egg or Water to explain the Trinity? Yeah. Heresy. Let me allow my little Irish smart aleck friends help you. That makes things sooo much clearer. Thanks Patrick. I’m not going to try … More What Happens When We Emphasize One Person of the Trinity Over the Rest?
The Sabbath is Saturday. It always has been and it always will be. The rub comes in the beloved 10 Commandments. They all sound so relevant except for #4 – Remember the Sabbath Day & Keep It Holy. So Christians face a couple of options: Option A) They can pretend that Sunday is the new … More Stop Pretending the Sabbath Is Sunday
