“The Story” Chapter 1, Genesis four, from Adam to Noah. Edit and repost.


When I made the first post in 2014, I did it under protest. Having had experience with Pastor Rick Warren and his 40 days of purpose books, I wanted nothing to do with this, and the small men’s Bible study … Continue reading

They asked if you are not the Christ, Elijah, or the Prophet, why are you baptizing? John 1: 28, 29.


If you are a follower of Christ, a similar question will be asked about you. Since you are not Christ, why are you trying to change anybody’s life? The world and many religious people do not know that we gave … Continue reading

The freedom the cross brings. Romans 6


As an aspect of my rebellious nature, I wrote this post and included my Pastor’s name. I, as a joke, tried to redact it, but that did not work, so I either eliminated it or put dots where his name … Continue reading

Only when we have faith do we truly fulfill the law. Rom 3:9-31


Romans 3 opened with this statement, “then what’s the advantage of being a Jew?” To the Jew-hating racist, this rant is a part of their bye-laws. It is obvious that chapter three opens in the middle of a conversation and … Continue reading

Premise is everything. A rebuttal of a post-tribulation rapture.


Once again, I am interrupting my train of thought on 1 Timothy; hope you don’t mind. A few days ago, on my Twitter feed, a young lady proclaimed, “the more I read Revelation chapter seven, the more I am convinced … Continue reading

This is my response to a Christian brother, on his post, “Why the Antichrist is not a Muslim.”


It is not clear to me how or why the brother picked this topic, but I happen to believe that the Antichrist will be Islamic and not a Roman, as so many adhere to. You opened by saying, “Obadiah, among … Continue reading

When desire has conceived. James 1:15-27


I ended the last post on the book of James with this: Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. … Continue reading

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1


This idea of confessing, as though it was a continual act of slaughtering a lamb for your sins, does not change God’s heart toward you. 1 John 1:9 NASB says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Continue reading

Considering that it is the Christmas season, I chose to do a character study on Joseph.


It doesn’t feel like I have time, but I want to do a character study on Joseph, the man who married Mary, the mother of Jesus. Let’s set something straight right off the bat.  Although Mary is considered the mother … Continue reading
