Push it Right Back

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine sent me an article titled “Push Back – Part Fifteen.” He sent me the article and asked what I thought. I wrote up a reply and I thought it would be nice to share my response with all of you. I’m not sure where to start, I think it’s kind of an upsetting article. I don’t think anyone is saying that homosexuality isn’t a sin. If it’s a sin then it obviously has its roots in the the things that are not of God. Any sin can be classified as selfishness and… Read More

Why should I vote for Ron Paul?

Well, I’ve heard that the thee things you’re “not supposed to talk about” in church are sex, finances, and politics. Figured I might as well break the ice… In Article II, Section I, Clause XII, of the United States Constitution it says that the President is sworn “to the best of [his/her] Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” I’ve done a lot of research (starting in 2007) and I haven’t found a candidate that has a better track record of doing that, and a commitment to that, more than Ron Paul. The biggest thing all… Read More

Does Jesus hate religion?

Perhaps I am wrong, I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, and I don’t think He was actually talking about the religion as in “our faith” in the bible, but the “religiousness” of people. Perhaps he should have been more clear, but I think Jesus was very much against religiosity, or someone being religious for the sake of being religious. I wouldn’t describe Jesus as a ‘religious man’ and it seemed that the people he had the harshest words against were the religious. It’s strange that the word can mean something good as in ‘our faith’ but… Read More

What is Favoritism?

This question has plagued me for a really long time. I have read this line several times before “My brothers, hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ without showing favoritism.” which is the first line of the second chapter of James. If you were to just stop there some obvious red flags are raised. Wait a second, didn’t our Lord show favoritism to the disciples? And even more so to the ‘select 3′ that he took to see the transfiguration? What does it mean when God shows ‘favor’ to people? These were the questions that really put a… Read More

Notes on Zeitgeist

Today, one of my friendsposted a link to Zeitgeist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNf-P_5u_Hw I watched the video, and recorded my notes for you to read. This video is unbelievably unbiblical. For instance, the bible NEVER says the day or even the month in which Jesus was born. Christmas, therefor, IS on a pagan holiday, but IS NOT when Jesus was born. If you would like, we could watch it together and I can show you that most of what they are saying about Christ is not in the bible, but has been constructed through pop-cultural beliefs about Christ. This is the problem. Most… Read More
