    The Nativity Misconception Transforms into a Picture of our Faith

    Christmas is here. Most of us stop at least for a moment during this busy season and contemplate the Nativity. Sometimes the Nativity becomes something a little “magical” or “romantic” to us.   We gaze at the ornate wise men and the manly shepherds, the donkey and the stable, the manger and the straw, but […]

    Wholly Devoted, yet Wholly Not

    Can you be wholly devoted to God, yet not rely on Him? Can you be wholly devoted to the Lord, yet miss Him? The answer seems to be – “Yes.” There was a king of Judah named Asa.  It says in 1 Kings 15:14 that Asa “was wholly devoted to the Lord all his days.”  […]

    The False Prophet vs. Jesus “Indiana Jones” Video Devotional

    This talks about Islamic theology and their version of our False Prophet. Their “good guy” goes against their “bad guy” and comes out the victor. We know better. According to us, Jesus wins. According to them, Jesus loses. But Jesus will be Indiana Jones in the last days. No doubt. http://youtu.be/AOPK3lJt4Qw

    Signs

    I watched “Bruce Almighty” the other night. I had seen it years ago, but when I was thinking about my blog, I got to thinking about signs, and I thought a refresher of the movie might be good.  One scene in particular has always stood out in my mind.  You might remember it.  Jim Carrey […]
