• Pastor Oprah

    Acts 4:12 – Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (NKJV; emphasis mine)For those of you who have read my stuff for very long, you will know that it is only on a rare occasion I address specific people by name. It has come to a point where it is time for Christians to start addressing the religion of Oprah Winfrey by name.Far from simply being a television celebrity who does interviews of other celebrities, or even a feel-good promoter of moralism (being good is the road to salvation), Oprah now openly engages in evangelizing people into her ear tickling, wishy-washy new age mumbo-jumbo. She is using her […]

     
  • Head God, Heart God – Final Thoughts – Part 3

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Mark 9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (NKJV)Let’s finish talking about this difference between what our head knows about God versus what our heart (emotions) feels when things are at their WORST in our life. To make sure I give credit where it’s due, this series was prompted by Michael Wells book, “Sidetracked in the Wilderness”, particularly chapter four. Consider some common responses and see if you can identify with any of them. Remember, we are talking about what you feel deep in your heart (emotions) when you are at the very worse points in your life. It takes a lot […]

     
  • Head God, Heart God – Continued – Part 2

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Mark 9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (NKJV)We continue to look at some interesting questions that reveal the difference between what we know in our head about God, versus what we truly feel in our emotions about Him. Remember, what we are examining is how we feel at OUR WORST, when life is caving in around us and we are in the depths of our greatest unhappiness. During those times, think about your answers to some of these questions and let if reveal how you REALLY feel about God.When I am forced to trust God, I feel… Our head would say […]

     
  • Head God, Heart God – Part 1

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Mark 9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (NKJV)I read a book recently and one particular chapter really caught my attention. While my commentary will be my own, the initial questions and contemplation came from reading this chapter, so I wanted to give credit where due. It is pages 57-66 of the book “Sidetracked in the Wilderness” by Michael Wells.The author brings up the concept of “unbelieving Believers” which are genuine Christians who don’t live like they actually believe what they know to be true in their head. A “test” is presented with some very interesting questions along with some commentary. What […]

     
  • Defining Christianity

    Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. (NKJV)2 Timothy 4:3 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; (NKJV) Okay, everytime I address an issue that falls short of excepting anyone as a “Christian” who wants to be called one, I light up a firestorm and lose a bunch of readers. Oh well. My allegiance is to the clear truth of Scripture, not to popularity. So here goes….America’s Most Popular Pastor recently went on national television yet again, and was unable to […]

     
  • That Jude Dude – But You – Part 5

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Jude 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, (NKJV) Jude spends the bulk of the letter describing and warning about false teachers. Rather than ending with comments on what to do with them, or how to do it, Jude instead gives us a rapid fire list of things WE should do, and be, that will equip and prepare us to deal with false teachers when they come into our midst: Jude 20-25 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ […]
