Stranger Danger . . .

I live in multi-cultural area. And it is a fantastic place to be. I am exposed and interact with people form all faiths, cultures, and nationalities. Where as others see danger, I see opportunity. Today’s blog is more for my brethren here in the United States. The Holy Spirit through scripture reminds us: We areContinue reading “Stranger Danger . . .”

The Job Nobody is Doing . . .

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.  There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.  Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.  Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody‚Äôs job.  Everybody thought Anybody could do it,Continue reading “The Job Nobody is Doing . . .”

Don’t Bother Praying For Them . . .

There was an old 1991 VHS tape that my kids had when they were small called Rock-A-Doodle. It was a story about a rooster named Chanticleer.

Christian Fortune Tellers . . .

The modern charismatic church by and large has gotten backwards the role of prophecy. From what I have witnessed prophecy has become a Christian version of fortune telling. It is wrongly believed that the role of the prophet is to foretell the future. Prophecy emerged at a time before we had a completed Old TestamentContinue reading “Christian Fortune Tellers . . .”

No need to put it in writing . . .

I remember the first time I began to visit a charismatic church of the late seventies. As I entered and sat with my friends who invited me, I remember being perplexed as to why there was no church bulletin. They basically responded, ” Oh we do not do that, we like to be free toContinue reading “No need to put it in writing . . .”
