Your Sins are Forgiven

When I was going to the park today I chanced by the local video store. Yes, we still have one of those in my neighborhood. The front of the place is covered in movie adverts and other kinds of posters for upcoming concerts and events. There was also a marriage notice, for the gay owners … Continue reading

The Science Behind the Resurrection

Just as Noah set loose a raven first, followed by a dove, so too did God use multiple manifestations in order to raise His son. The raven was the lasting one, who was able to fly for such a long time. The doves each would go out for the time they were strong enough to … Continue reading

What Does it Mean for Jesus to Call Himself the ‘Son of Man’?

I was just walking back in the bitter cold, minus one Fahrenheit, from dropping off last night’s movies into the Redbox when it hit me. Under the natural state of things people living outside in these conditions don’t fair very well. It’s all very good and well for that squirrel that lives out back of … Continue reading

What is Good?

When looking through the channels Sunday morning, I get over the air reception, I decided to see what some of the more obscure looking ones were. There was a lot of church stuff on. One of the obscure channels had a program where a man said something akin to, “You see this pattern over and … Continue reading

Mustard Seed Faith

I’ve always struggled with the idea of faith. What is it to begin with? Is it something that we find small at first, and then watch it grow? Maybe that notion is actually the farthest thing from the truth? In the past I’ve laid down my reasons for stating that Satan is not some other … Continue reading

Cast Your Net on the Right Side of the Boat

For two thousand years Christianity has lingered in a period without miracles. Miracles were not just a part of Christ’s ministry, when he walked on earth. They were also a part of the normal life of the Early Church. What happened? To answer the question we need to understand that everything in the bible is … Continue reading

How to Free Yourself From Original Sin

You know, Jesus preached a gospel of how to free yourself from original sin, and yet you don’t see that gospel preached in any of the churches. In the constant repetition of three’s that you see in not just the Gospels, but in many other places in the Bible as well, the teaching is hidden. … Continue reading

The Sins of Jeroboam

Jeroboam was king over Israel after the reign of Solomon. He set up two bulls as things to worship so that the people of Israel wouldn’t turn to the temple in Jerusalem, such that their loyalties would be split between two nations. After Solomon the kingdom split into two kingdoms, Israel and Judah. Jeroboam did … Continue reading

Who is Elijah?

Jesus said, “If you can see it, Elijah has come.” When he was talking to his disciples about why the Pharisees said that Elijah must come before the Christ. The author of the account then credits John the Baptist as being Elijah. Maybe the mistake is that John contained the Elijah, but wasn’t the Elijah? … Continue reading

The Holy Spirit

I’ve been giving some thought as to what my fundamental beef with Christianity is. I suppose I am a Christian. I have to fall back on that tag, but I am not exactly like the others. Whereas Christianity over the span of the last two thousand years has been about the story of God’s sacrifice … Continue reading
