Use it to Lose it!

Have you ever played a musical instrument then stopped for whatever reason? Then you may relate to this message. At one point in my life, I played the guitar, banjo, and piano well enough to play and sing on stage publicly. I played at county fairs, church, weddings, and during intermission at the local auditorium.Continue reading “Use it to Lose it!”

The Authority of the Church

One of the things that should be dear to our hearts, is the church we attend. For this discussion, the “religious church” will mean any church, of any kind, anywhere in the world. The “Christian church” meaning, “the born-again family of God through Jesus Christ” will be Radical Christians who have a strong spiritual relationshipContinue reading “The Authority of the Church”

The First Authority We Recognize

This was only mentioned in the last post, but deserves to be elaborated more. The first authority we all recognize, whether we agree with them or not, is our parents.
