Dystopia

Lately, I’ve been watching more Netflix, mainly for some new documentaries on WWI and history in general. In scanning through these shows, I began seeing some new entries and one caught my eye.

For Want Of A Nail

We all feel inadequate during the many seasons of our lives. This can be in spiritual matters or in the physical day to day issues. I think all Christians want to make a difference for the kingdom of God. We all want to do “BIG!” things for Christ. But we know from observations of others in life that we are not all going to be “Billy Graham.”

The Author & Perfecter of Our Faith

I have been taking time to read the New Testament closely and carefully in order to find what it means to truly follow Christ. I keep coming back to a particular verse that talks of Jesus being the “author and perfecter of faith;” who completed his task perfectly and has now sat down at the right hand of God.

Our Two Charges

Jesus Christ spoke very plainly and clearly to His apostles. Towards the end of his ministry, Jesus was asked what was the greatest command that was to be followed, and His answer left us with just two charges.

Then The Sun Came Out

We had some strong storms recently. The lightning crashed, the rain fell, and the wind blew something fierce. As to be expected, there was damage throughout the town; limbs down, power out, light damage to homes and property. As I made my way out of town I thought to myself, “Isn’t this like life?”

Social Media To Salt The Earth?

“The social media of today is the equivalent of the marketplaces and squares where Jesus and his apostles preached and taught.”

A Lesson Learned From A Child’s Coloring Sheet

“Our thoughts, pictures, and ways are corrupted because we and the world have been tainted with sin.”

Profile: Martin Heidegger

“Martin Heidegger’s philosophy, along with the others, did not have any ‘hope’ to give.”

Casting Nets

We read in the Bible that Jesus tells us to go out unto the world and become fishers of men. There seems to be a problem with modern Christianity. We no longer follow Jesus’ command. If we read the scripture and look at the process of fishing with a net then we should notice something is wrong.

Profile: Karl Jaspers

“He bent all his energies toward the development of a philosophy that would be independent of science but that would not become a substitute for religious beliefs.”
