Being Authentic with God

January 1, 2012

Many Christians seem stuck in a worship rut – an unsatisfying routine – instead of having a vibrant friendship with God, because they force themselves to use devotional methods or worship styles that don’t fit the way God uniquely shaped them. The best style of worship is the one that most authentically represents your love […]

A Nazi Jesus or the Christ of the Bible?

December 22, 2011

How you view God is how you see man. An individual’s concept of “God” determines how one treats others. The same principle applies for a culture, nation or movement. The distorting of Jesus’ image and words is a sacrilege that destroys individuals and nations – or, for that matter, the perversion of other revered theological […]

Can God take a joke?

November 3, 2011

Can God take a joke? Absolutely! Say Christians and Jews, Mormons and Muslims. There’s a fresh wave of humor among clergy, comics and believers alike, who are putting out new books and taking to the comedy club stages. Their jokes can be contemporary, but they’re rooted in holy texts. When Muslim comic Azhar Usman tours […]

Ron Paul invokes and applies the Bible

October 11, 2011

Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul says he would rather look to God – “the original king” and creator – than to the government as a model for moral values. Citing from the Old Testament book of Samuel, Paul said problems had arisen from an over-reliance on government leaders. “We have too often relied on […]

Religious beliefs in America continue to fracture

September 27, 2011

Religion statistics expert George Barna says, with a wry hint of exaggeration, America is headed for “310 million people with 310 million religions.” “We are a designer society. We want everything customized to our personal needs — our clothing, our food, our education,” he says. Now it’s our religion. More people claim they have accepted […]

The complete idiot’s guide to the protection of American atheists

August 12, 2011

A group of atheists have filed a lawsuit to prevent the inclusion of the historic Ground Zero Cross at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. We have learned from their lawsuit that they, “have suffered, are suffering, and will continue to suffer damages, both physical and emotional, from the existence of the challenged cross.” Atheists have […]

Old Testament teachings are, well, old

January 26, 2011

The following tongue-in-cheek letter addressed to Dr. Laura Schlesinger is a reminder that too many belief systems and believers pick and choose their way through religious teachings cafeteria style in determining what is “right” and “wrong”. [As a further note on the subject, far too many Christians in particular are operating by an “old” script […]

The U.S.’s no. 1 religion – Nope, not Christianity, it’s Ego-novism!

September 6, 2010

Christianity is commonly held to be the predominate religion in the United States, with 82.3 percent of Americans identifying themselves as being Christian in polls. However, when surveys are made that collect religious data, the pollsters never drill down to find out how religious the respondent really is. The vast majority of Christians do not […]

Christians are not commissioned to be judgmental

September 2, 2010

Many conservative Christians today, particularly in the U.S., have given Christianity a bad name because of their strongly judgmental attitudes, which portrays the image of a Christian as being terribly self-righteous. Judgmentalism portrays the opposite of the unconditional love that God has for Mankind. We as Christians may not agree with people’s beliefs or actions, […]

Be slow to judge – judgment is God’s domain

September 1, 2010

There are few recorded incidents in the New Testament of Jesus meting out judgment, or castigating people, or condemning them. Most of the recorded occasions when He did so were not directed at the population as a whole, but rather at the religionists of His day (the Pharisees), who were not the example of God’s […]
