“ Anyone who rebukes a mocker will get an insult in return.
Anyone who corrects the wicked will get hurt.
So don’t bother correcting mockers;
they will only hate you.
But correct the wise,
and they will love you.
Instruct the wise,
and they will be even wiser.
Teach the righteous,
and they will learn even more.”
They are going to be playing at Acquire the fire this weekend. I’m hoping to write about the event on Monday.
“For the Lord sees clearly what a man does,
examining every path he takes.
An evil man is held captive by his own sins;
they are ropes that catch and hold him.
He will die for lack of self-control;
he will be lost because of his great foolishness.”
Yesterday was Star Wars day, today is the national day of prayer, I imaging that it is only a matter of time before the tow days coincide, which will be really cool. Anyways, I want to talk about prayer for a bit. My kids learned to pray pretty early. They fight over who gets to pray over the meal, so we have a schedule and it is very important to keep teh schedule. Even the 2 year old has his turn.

I learned to pray when I was very young too. … [Read more...]
Today is May 4th, hence "May the fourth be with you" aka "Star Wars Day." Now I wouldn't be a geek without bringing some attention to this, but I want to draw a clear distinction here. I have watched all the Star Wars movies, I enjoyed them, even the ones with Jar Jar Binks. I have memorized many lines, but I'm not super sold that it is the all to end all of SciFi. I have read a few dozen of the books, I'm an avid reader so I was bound to read several. Most are short enough I can knock out a couple a day even on my current schedule. Some of the books are great, some are terrible. I've also … [Read more...]
In the last part of the "I Owe You an Apology" series, The Creator Revealed, I followed a series of logical arguments to demonstrate that the Creator must be One and must have several characteristics ascribed to the God of the Bible. Before that I allowed Science and Logic to show that the Universe must have been created by a specific type of being. Today I want to focus on the Origin of Life. Of course this whole discussion is a bit of a moot point given the evidence for a Creator, but it is interesting to note the blind faith of atheistic scientists in excluding the possibility of a … [Read more...]
In the time from the Crucifixion to the day of Pentecost there were a great many changes in the followers of Christ. In this sermon I read from 1 Corinthians 15 and follow 3 key changes in life that brought the early church out of fear and into a bold proclamation of the Gospel, including changes in Paul’s life after Christ ascended. Find out why you must know Christ, be given Grace, and receive the Holy Spirit for this change to be worked in your life.
I spent the day at the Apple Blossom Festival. I just want to say that spending all day looking at crafts is not in my top 10, not even close. Normally I will do pretty much anything to avoid it. … View Gallery
