Change your mind…change you!

Is your mind the same thing as your brain? Well, your brain is an organ; your mind isn’t. Which sounds crazy, but there you have it. To which neuroscientists reply, why are you relying on such a distinction? What else is behavior but the result of brain biology? Yet the fact that criminals are treated [...]

Relationship or religion?

Following Christ should be deleted from the list of world religions, because it's not a religion. Following Jesus cannot be defined by the practice of sacraments. Anyone can practice them. Anyone can confess sins. Anyone can eat bread and drink wine or grape juice, listen to a sermon, fast, pray and study a Bible. And [...]

Christian or Christ-follower?

I avoid the word “Christian” when talking about the church, because the word has become meaningless. According to the Pew Research Center, 65 percent of American adults describe themselves as Christian.[1] But all that means is that 167 million people, not counting children and teens, may or may not attend a weekly church meeting, may [...]

The Tree of Knowledge is still alive, tempting . . . and deadly

The world is too much with us; late and soon, Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;— Little we see in Nature that is ours; We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon! ~ William Wordsworth Sweet baby kale, peppery arugula and crisp baby watercress could be among the most delicious and unusual [...]

The not-so-distant future

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="2461" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]God has gathered the “nations” to fight against us for many years. If we are still standing today, we are seasoned soldiers. Seasoned soldiers are not those who wield the gifts of the Spirit—healing the sick, raising the dead, and casting out demons. The Holy Spirit does that. Seasoned soldiers are those [...]

An amazing adventure

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="2564" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The church has been devolving for centuries, closing in on itself, becoming less the living body of Christ and more a religious organization. Those who have seen it happening thought it couldn’t be true. And, if it was true, they didn’t know what they could do about it. Others came to believe [...]

God is the enemy of a good plan

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="2441" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]“The greatest enemy of a good plan,” said business magnate Jack Bogle, “is the dream of a perfect plan. Stick to the good plan.”[1] Which is fine for businessmen, but it's terrible advice for people like you and me. We were crucified with Christ. So we no longer live our old lives. Christ [...]
