Weed-Worshipping Minister Of Alien-god Offspring

Weed-Worshipping Minister Of Alien-god Offspring

That process of ordination was precious to me. It’s kind of like my credential since I don’t have the Bible College diploma on the wall, which is arguably not as important. It was not without great effort and it means a lot to me that those preachers as well as all the people of my sending church decided, “We can get behind this guy”. The approval and moral support of all of them means the world to me because I respect each of them highly. It would crush my spirit to not have them behind me.

Book Review: The Logic Of God By Ravi Zacharias

Book Review: The Logic Of God By Ravi Zacharias

So you can see that because Mr. Zacharias often quotes Lewis, it’s hard to tell sometimes if he believes salvation is a moment or simply a process that begins at a moment. That’s what I mean. It’s vague! So, despite Zacharias having such great logical and biblical arguments for so many things, I’m always left wanting in his explanations of how salvation of a soul actually happens.

How to Fish For Scup (Porgy's) - Skill Collecting

What makes fishing for scup so much fun is that they are a “high percentage” catch. Just a few simple things and you’ll catch a Scup, likely a bunch of them. That makes it especially great for kids. These fish put up a pretty good fight for their size too.

Don’t Speak Like The Foreman if You’re Only A Laborer (Working for the Lord of Harvest)

Don’t Speak Like The Foreman if You’re Only A Laborer (Working for the Lord of Harvest)

My point is, had we based our calling on the usually accepted conception of “need”. We might not have come. We based our mission on the call of God, not on statistics or demographics. I don’t think people have the right to say where the needs are or are not. Only God does, because He knows things we don’t. As Lord of the harvest, He moves laborers as He sees fit. Don’t speak like the Foreman of the job-site if you’re only a laborer.

Who Has The Hardest Job?

Who Has The Hardest Job?

I’m not sure why some people get caught up in the game of trying to figure out whose job is more difficult. Do some men think that’s manly? Some full-time pastors try to act like bi-vocational ones don’t fully understand the spiritual depth of full-time ministry. Some bi-vocational men try to act like full-time ministers are spoiled, soft, golf-addicts (I may be guilty of this one in the past). Some church members try to act like pastors don’t face similar risks for evangelizing that they do. Some pastors try to act like church members have it easy because they get to punch out at the end of the day.

Book Review: The Wright Brothers by David McCullough

t’s hard to imagine a world before airplanes. Every day we can look up and likely see one ferrying people somewhere. Human flight seems so normal now, yet in McCullough’s book we get to witness the reactions of people to seeing a man fly in something for the first time.

I Earned My Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. What Does it All Mean?

I Earned My Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. What Does it All Mean?

What I like about BJJ is that it’s very practical. We’ve all seen these Youtube “martial artists” teaching things they’ve either learned from Hollywood or just made up that are in no way realistic. Just looking at their technique you think, “that would never work in real life.” BJJ actually works practically. Obviously nothing is one-hundred percent effective, but its extremely high percentage effectiveness over other marital arts has led to it being coined “the King of Martial Arts”.

Compelling Reasons for Local Church Membership

Compelling Reasons for Local Church Membership

In my limited experience, people that scoff at the concept of local church membership are either rebellious and non-committal or they are wounded. The former are proud and just think themselves above being voluntarily accountable to anyone. The latter have had bad experiences with pastors and churches who tried to micro-manage their lives using unbiblical authoritarianism, brow-beating, and spiritual abuse all in the name of Hebrews 13:17.

Baptist Tech News (WARNING: SATIRE)

Baptist Tech News (WARNING: SATIRE)

At a high profile church where the app was being beta tested, the minister told us, “In the old days, we had to crop out the empty ends of the altar in pictures. This new-fangled technology solves it.” We also tried interviewing some church members there but most said they weren’t allowed to talk to the media.
