It seems that during our lives we often wish that the weekend was near. When we get older and make it to the working world, we tend to set our eyes on Friday, or whatever the day starts our weekend. I know that I have told people that I’m just ready for Friday to arrive. I… Continue reading Wishing Away
A common argument for many is that each person is a child of God. You may see this argument from someone who is a Latter-day Saint (LDS or Mormon) or from a non-Christian or even some Christians. It’s particularly popular in American “Christianity” because no one wants to be offended. However, it’s also a theological… Continue reading Is it Biblical: Every Person is a Child of God
If you’re anything like myself, you are always looking for new apps. I always struggle in my search of new apps. There’s a lot downloading apps and then deleting them for whatever reason. I personally often look to various blogs to see what apps they’ve been enjoying. The year 2013 is ending and tomorrow brings… Continue reading 9 Apps Every Christian Will Enjoy
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, you’ve heard about the comments that Phil Robertson of the Duck Dynasty family made in regards to homosexuality.

Here is what I posted: On man-made idols and statues worshiped: “Thus says the Lord, “Do not learn the way of the nations, and do not be terrified by the signs of the heavens… Continue reading When Scripture Offends You
Yesterday was the beginning of the Season of Advent. Many such as Catholics, Lutherans, Anglicans, etc. partake in this season. Some non-liturgical churches also participate, although the number is few. Many may not know what exactly Advent is, including myself until recently. I was not raised in a Christian faith in which Advent was celebrated.… Continue reading Is It Biblical: The Season of Advent
As my readers know, I don’t always (or really ever) have kind words for preachers such as Joel Osteen and Joseph Prince (just to mention two). I also don’t have kind words for pseudo-Christian groups such as Catholicism, Mormonism, or those that are indulging in New Age practices. I often talk about the unbiblical teachings… Continue reading Is it Biblical: “Criticizing Pastors Might Bring the Wrath of God”
I was recommended the book Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman. It’s certainly a very popular book, especially among younger Christians. However, just because something is popular among Christians doesn’t mean that it is exactly Biblical. Look at prosperity preachers such as Joel Osteen, Joseph Prince, and others that make millions of dollars a year… Continue reading A Brief Review: Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman
More and more we see psychics, mediums, and even those who focus on ghosts. It’s all over the media. You can rarely flip through the channels and not see a reference to one of the above. It may be Long Island Medium, Ghost Hunters, A Haunting, or some other psychic or medium on a daily talk show… Continue reading Should Christians turn to psychics and mediums?
