Letting God Love Through You!!

Across the nation and around the world the headlines of news outlets are replete with acts of hatred toward mankind. Murders, thefts, injustice and downright meanness are all too often what we read about. But why—why is there so much hatred? Being a small fish in a large pond it is easy to see these situations as something too far beyond our ability to make a difference. Instead, what often follows is a turning inward toward oneself and on one’s own life while leaving others alone to live out theirs. We see this in the statement of escape, “To each his own.” But is this the correct attitude to have? Should we just “Live and let others live?” I think the question is really a deeper one than we may think and is very much dependent on how we have been raised and where we have chosen to stick our noses in the “garbage in and garbage out” process of learning.

Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation."For this they willfully forget: that by the word…

Is Fighting the Culture War Worth it?

I don’t think that anyone would disagree that the number one cultural focus that the MSM (Main Stream Media), Universities, Government and Businesses are all picking up on these days is the division that surrounds Homosexuality. More and more we see the culture shifting at break-neck pace to embrace and wrap itself around this lifestyle –one that revolves around the choice of sex partners. Why do these entities embrace it now?
I would like to try as best as possible to approach the issue from a truly “Love for God and Neighbor” viewpoint. Whether I am successful does not matter; for I am constrained, not by my own wish to speak out but by the continuing call of God to live as he directs through the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Below is a list of topics I will briefly touch upon.
