Online Shopping & Charity

This isn’t about being a consumer, I just wanted to point out that one very simple way to contribute to your community or favorite charity is to make sure that when you’re shopping online, you have the Amazon Smile feature turned on. When you consider who you’re donating to, there are three big considerations IContinue reading “Online Shopping & Charity”

They Know Not What They Do…

After this past election, you may be dreading that Thanksgiving Dinner Thursday.  You may have even canceled it based on a political difference of opinion.   After the 2016 Election, researchers found that a lot of family Thanksgiving visits were cut short because of political division within the family. With the hail storm of badContinue reading “They Know Not What They Do…”

No, I Do Not Believe God Has a Plan for Every Individual Person

5 years ago my thoughts were apprehensive about a move to a foreign place.  I had never been particularly worried about moving before (angry once, because of a broken promise, but not worried). This time though, my family moved into a place that was at a good price, but not exactly good for our health-Continue reading “No, I Do Not Believe God Has a Plan for Every Individual Person”

The Futility of Saul

I’ve always wondered what would have happened if Saul had made a different decision in 1 Samuel 28.  What if, instead of going to the Witch of Endor…he stopped trying to seek God’s voice, and instead went to the temple, offered up sacrifices, and sincerely apologized, told God he wouldn’t keep bugging Him and thenContinue reading “The Futility of Saul”

The Witch of Endor’s Nature

At the end of their encounter with Samuel, the witch moves to comfort Saul.  She wasn’t, by human standards, evil.  What we see is a woman that, despite having fear of Saul in the beginning, does nothing to show malice towards him. Saul, by God’s earlier command, ordered all witches to be executed.  He promisesContinue reading “The Witch of Endor’s Nature”

So You Want to Talk With the Dead…

The story of Saul and the Witch of Endor played a significant role in my coming to terms with the difference between what God calls evil, and what Man calls evil.   After my encounter with an Angel who revealed to me that even though I would be set for life as a Pagan, ifContinue reading “So You Want to Talk With the Dead…”

Can you be a Christian and still be possessed by a Demon?

Questions like these intrigue me.  Although the answer is “no”, it doesn’t focus enough on the qualifying statement that one must be Christian to be immune.  Luke 11:17-26“Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls. And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you sayContinue reading “Can you be a Christian and still be possessed by a Demon?”

The Christian Vote?

There is a full month before the American Elections…and I still don’t have a clue what I’m going to write down for my Presidential candidate.  Yeah, that’s right, I’m going to do a write-in.  But my vote isn’t really the topic today.  It’s the Christian Vote that I want to discuss. I can understand theContinue reading “The Christian Vote?”

The Saints Are Alive

Thoughts after reading Proven Truth: How Paganism and Idolatry Started in the Church This post, in no way, is intended to admonish the author Giselle.  It is simply the thoughts that came to mind as I read through her work.  More specifically inspired by the following exert: “One of the ‘Apostolic Fathers’, Emperor Julian ofContinue reading “The Saints Are Alive”
