No-Know

Recent events in the US has many people on the edge of their seats. I have never seen emotions so high as they have been this year. Particularly, racism and the recent ruling by the US Supreme Court on same sex marriages. I know the media feeds a lot of this emotional stuff to us because it creates advertising revenue by more visits to their articles. Meanwhile, the TPP has been going on under the radar and yes you should be…

A recent fad is to go to some of these websites to take personality tests. You have seen them: What kind of ___ are you? People succumb to the Confirmation Bias, which is “the tendency to remember or notice information that fits one’s expectations while forgetting discrepancies.” -Introduction to Psychology: Gateways to Mind and Behavior(1). We don’t need to find out who we are by answering these questions on some websites. We also don’t need to be limited by astrology signs and…

To say that I am a busy man at church as a layman would be an understatement. I have a passion for doing things right and giving 100%. If someone needed my help with something and I agreed to help, I am all in. That’s how I view my Christianity. When I decided to follow Jesus I knew that I would give Him my all. I asked my wife (then girlfriend) as I started to change internally from spending time with God:…

Until I saw what a lack of love actually does to people, I didn’t understand. My mom and dad did not raise me to think bigoted or racist, which I am forever grateful. However, the influence and constant surroundings of where I lived brought on a subconscious that leaned…

“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;  and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” 2 Timothy 4:2-4 Our society is very selfish, for the most part. We want everything, but cannot have it. We want it…

This is what happens to an organization that does not understand the market and does not change with the times. People still like movies, but they obviously don’t need to go to a store to get it nor wait to receive them in the mail. Most people download movies or rent them online through Netflix, AppleTV, Amazon, and more. It could be said the same thing for any ministry/church out there. People still love the gospel message. However, if we…

Have you ever been in a room where someone decided to scrape their fingernails on a chalkboard? I know… those of you who hate it cringed just thinking about it. I just want to put my hands over my ears and scream to blot out the sound. There’s something about that sound that just strikes the very core of my mind and I can’t think about anything else. I was thinking back at a moment when I went out for…
