The World today has come to rest in a place i call " Easy- Beliefism"...Many churches across all denominations are afraid to stand on the true WORD of God and be bold and preach what it says.....so they just water it down a little bit to make it palateable to all people...because we really shouldnt offend anyone!!

The problem with that is ....it aint Biblical.....

Jesus tied FAITH with OBEDIANCE.....meaning if you say you have FAITH in JESUS and Believe in HIM then you will OBEY what HIs word says , wethier you like it or not....there are many things in the Bible that i do not like, but if i love GOD then i will strive to obey and when i fail i will quickly ask forgiveness and strive again to do the right thing.....

YES i know GOD is LOVE and loves all, yes HE does but he HATES YES HATES our sin....We can not have a lifestyle of a sinful pattern and say we love GOD ....Pre-martial sexual relationships is wrong, you cant be living together in willful defiance of GOD  and say you love HIM...Homosexuality is wrong, you cant be GAY and say you love GOD..they are polar opposites....

The christian lifestyle is not an easy one and as a preacher is one i take very seriously. The thought of me standing with JESUS in Heaven asd my church people come to judgement is one i take seriously,  I cant stand the thought of being in heaven as people are sent to HELL forever and have them looking at me and asking   WHY DIDNT YOU TELL ME THE TURTH?????  NOPE i dont want that on me.....id rather yall hate me now then me hate me later........

So today if you have continued reading this far ....Faith & LOve for Christ = Obediance     without OBEDIANCE there is no salvation and thus no entry in to HEaven.

 

GOD the risk taker

WOW what a morning in my office today...taking time to read and spend in prayer and one article ive read really has hit home....i HAD to share....

When JESUS made the garden of eden, HE did not child proof it...God placed 2 trees before adam and eve and gave them a choice...live free with me forever of DIE....

Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding feast....I know jesus doesnt want us DRUNK,The Bible is oh so clear on that ,  BUT  God does not control people , HE actually provides us with options and then EMPOWERS us to make the right choice.....

the only way you can get a reward for doing the right thing is to have an option to do it wrong....

 

Casey Marie Anthony

WOW the response to casey's aquittal on murder charges has drawn such a deep emotional core response. I choose not to debate her innocence or guilt, but instead im going to take a different approach.

when the religeous leaders of the day were calling on JESUS to punish a woman , he said to them ...

HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN < CAST THE FIRST STONE.

Well here is my good preacherly response to casey anthony and the responders....

In Gods eyes our little white lies are as bad as murder and the penalty is the same...so if youve have lied, stolen cheated, lusted  had bad thoughts your as bad as casey anthony in Gods eyes...A sin is a sin and the wages of sin is DEATH in Gods eyes. Romans 3:23    Would you want the religeous leaders of the world today calling for you to be put to death in HELL forever because you have lied?

But GOD being the loving being HE is, Made a way to offer us forgiveness from our sin. You want to be forgiven right?   Dont you want to know that GOD is willing to forgive you and offer you a chance to get out of HELL and not be subject to the penalty you deserve?   I mean America is screaming for Casey to get what she deserves.....

Jesus gave HIS life in place of yours. You Have been found guilty of SIN. and your price is your life in HELL forever. BUT GOD loved you so much HE sent JESUS to PAY the price with HIS LIFE . John 3:16 says IF YOU BELIEVE in HIM youll have Freedom from your sin.

****** DO not miss this ****** Belive in this form is not a noun......Its NOT a thing you think, its not a minset of yes i belive in JESUS and what He did......NOPE WRONG.......

It translates I BELIEVE so much much that i transform my life to HIS and I do as HE wants me to do, i change the places i go , the things i do , I BELIEVE SO I OBEY......

So we all will face the judge one day....GOD ...and we will be found ethier Innocent /forgiven or we will be found guilty and made to pay the price.....Today as i write this ---i shudder in fear because i know that over 70% of people in church today may get to meet the judge and be sadly mistaken that they are NOT forgiven.

My question to you is this: Do you belive in JESUS?     Do you belive He died for you? 

HAS that belief TRANSFORMED YOUR LIFE?     Are you living the life JESUS would say is acceptable?

Is your belief in JESUS changing you?  Are you OBEDIANT TO GODS guidlines set forth in the Bible?

 

grace vs mercy

E-mail Print PDF

the words mercy & grace jsut keep swirling around my head...on the ride into the office today all i could think of was HOW great GODS grace is...

Mercy is good but its not the best...MERCY says i know you did wrong and i forgive you....thats a good thing, and yes we all need to offer mercy to those around us......

BUT

Grace says  yes i know you did that  and NOT only do i forgive you , but here is a little special gift because i love you.....

God offers GRACE to us daily...he says i HATE your sin but i love you the person. I not only offer you forgiveness for that sin, but i want to give you the best gift available..SALVATION...its free to you but cost JESUS his life....It requires 2 things from you.....FAITH & ACTION

Faith in jesus is taking the ACTION steps to follow him....MANY will say "iam a christian with their words"  but their actions trample all over JESUS.....to recive GODS grace it takes a full committment of words and actions.....what do your actions say about wehat u belive?

 

mothers day

E-mail Print PDF

Today is friday and its 2 days before we celebrate mothers day...its supposed to be a day that we celebrate the woman who gave birth to us....UNFORTUNATLY..sometimes the woman who gave birth to us isnt worth celebrating....   I've met many kids whose mom was a crack addict, pill head who lost custody of their kids because men and drugs were more important.

Ive met kids whose moms have allowed their husbands or boyfriends molest and abuse their daughters.....Mothers day isnt always an easy day to celebrate.....

So how about those whove had a troublesome mom, how can you celebrate.?

Maybe you can celebrate the fact that a grandmother loved you enough to step in and fill in as a surrogate mom, or whomever it was who stepped in to help raise you, and love you.

Maybe those of us who have moms who loved us , have taken for granted the fact that we had a "normal" mom who loved us....maybe this mothers day we need to look around us and see those kids who dont have a loving mom , and become the hands and feet of jesus to them?  maybe we need to become a "christian mentor" to them and love them anyway......maybe we need to become their moms n dads and love them and show them just because there paternal mom didnt care WE DO.....
