Strong and Courageous Jan 4,2018 "It's not nice to fool mother nature." It's a common idea that runs through our culture. But where did the idea that it's not nice to fool mother nature come from? It may have been in existence for a long time, but the phrase became popular in a 1970's T.V. commercial about a brand of margarine that tasted so close to real butter that wh...Keep Reading

In these two passages of scripture, we see The Father and Jesus dwelling in pure brilliant and amazingly bright light. In Revelation chapter 1, Jesus is being metaphorically compared to the sun. These comparisons are rooted in the idea that we have no greater visual comparison to the unaided eye....
In last week’s post we talked about an important part of fishing is simply being out there on the water. This week I would like to drill down deeper into equipping us with an overarching understanding of certain processes that are often in play in the hearts and minds of those whom God is drawing unto himself....
It is an important question, particularly for those who do not believe that God exists. Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant minds on the planet, has espoused that gravity has the power and creative ability to be the cause of the origin of the universe....
Strong and Courageous Mockers I would like to express opinion on the topic of skepticism. It seems that our society is steeped in the idea that you are a wise person if, and only if you doubt almost everything that you hear or read. Not only should you be skeptical, but you should be sarcastic toward the other person's opinion as well. Our society is abounding with some ...Keep Reading

Strong Courageous Feb 16, 2018 Predestination Vs. Free will I had the opportunity to preach the message in church this last Sunday. One of the main points was the issue of God's predestination of those who will follow him and how it relates to humanity's free will. How can it be possible that both attributes be present and in play at the same time? For some people, t...Keep Reading
Strong and courageous Feb 9,2018 In last week's post we laid the groundwork for a post-modernist world view that only embraces relative truth alone, and is not willing to embrace the possibility of objective truth claims being valid. In this installment, I would like to get into a bit more detail concerning these ideas. Part of the reason for thinking that objective tru...Keep Reading
Eph 1 God reveals his plan for EVERYTHING, that He will unite all things in Christ both in heaven and on earth. Yes people that is really happening! How does that change us, shake us, awaken us to a live life submitted TODAY to Jesus. We don't have to wait to bend a knee, do it today and let him change your mind, schedule, priorities, values and relationships. This is H...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous Feb. 2,2018 A Post-modern worldview that has permeated much of our society, has as one of its core beliefs that there is no such thing as objective truth. All truth claims are only relatively true. They also hold tightly to the idea that there isn't any grand overarching metanarrative to the purpose and meaning of life. Rather that life is merely a ...Keep Reading
Strong Courageous Last week we looked into the definition of nature and found that there is a great gap in explanation both from a philosophical and a spiritual perspective. We also looked at the inconsistency of attempting to paint a personality profile of nature in order to sustain a particular worldview. Now that we have analyzed a naturalistic mindset that may have ...Keep Reading
