Lesser Of Two Evils Nonsense

Christians cannot vote for any Democratic candidate, or any candidate from any party, that supports the abortion of infants. Christians must steadfastly reject any candidate that wants to take taxpayer dollars to spill the blood of children. This is evil, and because abortion is such an evil,  Christians cannot vote for anyone who supports it. […]

The Rich Man

My Bible, over the passage in Mark 10:17-31, says this: The Rich Young Man. I don’t know why we assume this guy was young. He was obviously rich, 10:22, but there is nothing I can see that would lead us to believe he was young. I guess that might not matter and it depends who […]

The Authority of Jesus

Here is another nugget that won’t make it into my Palm Sunday sermon. Read Mark 11. At the end of this encounter, Jesus’s opposition confronts Him concerning His authority to do all that He has down.

The Way Of The King

I always opted to read the longer Gospels as if they were better. After actually studying […]

A Pile Of Hope

In the midst of cultural upheaval, presidential nonsensical political bickering, and the draconian Islamic State, we have hope. A Light that shines in the darkness, the coming of King who will never be removed from His throne. The forgiveness of sins for those overturning society, for lying political candidates and cronies, and yes, even for […]
