Hating (Others) Sin

Over the last few days I have been thinking about sin… …and I have been sinning. If any of you have been reading my blog, even on a semi-regular basis you will know that I consider myself a “sinner” with no claim to any righteousness or holiness ouside of Jesus. So even when I post something … More Hating (Others) Sin

The Death of Grace

 Last night I witnessed the death of grace in a church, the church I and my family have attended for the past 7 years. The setting was a congregational meeting with the sole purpose of determining whether or not the pastor of the church had the confidence of her members to remain as pastor. The church had … More The Death of Grace

Jumping Through Fundamentalist Hoops

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”                                                                                                                                          Jesus “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”  So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”                                                                                                                         Paul and Silas to the Philippian jailer   “O foolish … More Jumping Through Fundamentalist Hoops

Loving Sin….

I realized something again today…many times I love my sin.   What bothers me is that I’m not supposed to love my sin, after all I have been a Christian for a long time.

I am also passionate for believers in the church to understand the unconditional love of God so well that it sets them free from the legalism that is so prevalent in the american church today. Because I hold those two views … More Love vs. Doctrine

Brood of Vipers

I am still concerned.  Last week I mentioned a blog post written by Bryan Fischer over at the American Family Association’s affiliate Rightly Concerned. He has posted a response as to why his original post on Native Americans was taken down. Apparently it received so much vitriol that he didn’t want it to effect the mission of AFA. He … More Brood of Vipers

Savages In The Land

This week I just happened to take a look at The American Family Association (AFA) website. I don’t usually  spend too much time there since this “christian” organization tends to spend most of its time condemning the non-believer and scaring uninformed believers concerning the doom and destruction looming large before the family because of such things as Home … More Savages In The Land
