Living on the Edge, Part 2 of 3

How many sides are on a single coin? Would you believe there are three? We know of the heads and tails sides, but have you ever flipped a coin and have it land on neither heads nor tails, but on its edge? The two sides of the coin we are familiar with can represent blackContinue reading “Living on the Edge, Part 2 of 3”

One church is not a team.

How many of you can remember the Beach Boys? They had a popular song called: “Be True to Your School.” It was a song about supporting your school’s football team and was a true “feel good” song about school spirit. Having played on the football team during high school and other teams and sports duringContinue reading “One church is not a team.”

Bad Times Really Do End

Last month I had an empty period with my blog because a host of issues came up all at once. I thought that I would take this time to update you on the results. In one month, I had to repair four vehicles in order to allow my wife to continue working and to helpContinue reading “Bad Times Really Do End”

The Unforgivable Sin

If your parents wanted you to avoid doing something, would they make that thing to avoid absolutely clear and understandable? When I was four years old, we lived on a farm outside of town. The road in front of our home was paved, but we had a really long driveway, a barn, a playhouse, andContinue reading “The Unforgivable Sin”

To Act or to Complain

This episode of my blog is my complaint. My complaint is that so few Christians have chosen to act and make a spiritual change in their lives. So I feel I am working alone with God and no other support but from my family. I hope and pray that I am wrong and that myContinue reading “To Act or to Complain”

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”

I Owe, I Owe, So off to Work I Go!

Do you remember the scene in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs where the dwarfs were getting ready for work? This was how I used to sing the words of the dwarf’s song. That is until someone corrected me and I learned it was “Hi Ho” instead of “I Owe.” Our working lives are nowContinue reading “I Owe, I Owe, So off to Work I Go!”

Legal Authorities

Welcome to the lock down! Well, not really. Do you realize that we are witnessing an historical worldwide event? Doom and gloom forecasters have been prophesying of a future event that would cause martial law and the suspension of Constitutional rights in our nation for years. Time will tell whether this may be that futureContinue reading “Legal Authorities”

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. From our parents, we learn to walk, talk, and socialize. From our parents, we learn about our holidays and the foods to eat. We learnContinue reading “The First Authority We Recognize”

The Authority of Friendship

The first and most basic level of social order we learn beyond our family is the order of friendship. The oldest person in the group is usually the leader and everyone else follows along. Eventually, the youngest child becomes the oldest in the group and the new leader. But families move around and schools changeContinue reading “The Authority of Friendship”
