Some More Three Dog Night Please . . .

Once again, I will start out with the disclaimer that while I enjoy the sound of the music group Three Dog Night, their lifestyle is not necessarily one to be emulated by Christians, however the issues they raised in the early 70’s through their music still are issues we face today in America.  And (sigh)Continue reading “Some More Three Dog Night Please . . .”

One is the Loneliest Number . . .

Once again, another song from the old 60’s-70’s rock band Three Dog Night comes to mind. (Again, my usual disclaimer that their lifestyle is not one to be emulated as a Christian).  But they do have the song One is the Loneliest Number.  The lyrics read “No is the saddest experience you’ll ever know. Yes,Continue reading “One is the Loneliest Number . . .”

God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Scriptures . . .

As previously stated in the last blog, the Evangelical / Charismatic movement has as a root basis of thought, the need to be right.  Whether that be from right with their doctrine of the written word or being Johnny on the Spot with he latest prophetic word.  I have been harsh with the prophetic endContinue reading “God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Scriptures . . .”

From what I have read and observed from over 30Continue reading “It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time . . .”

Many have speculated was the result of a very abusive childhood.  What he was subjected to abuse as a child he attempted to make up for as an adult. This only resulted in an continued even more abusive lifestyle.  I am not justifying his abuse, butContinue reading “Christian Moonwalking”

A Fonzi Moment . . .

Back in the day of my youth, there was a hit TV series called “Happy Days.” There was a side character played by Henry Winkler named Fonzi who quickly became a fan favorite and star. He was a greaser biker of the 50’s, he always wore a leather jacket, and was always supposed to beContinue reading “A Fonzi Moment . . .”

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 . . .”
