DARK DAYS OF LEARNING

The reformation started because of a sudden ability to research, learn, and reason. 

The roman catholic church threw truth to the ground and buried the Word of God. When Constantinople fell, the Greek scholars, with the Greek text of the Bible, fled to Latin countries. The scholars started teaching in the universities of these Latin countries. While the roman catholic church controlled most everything, they let the learning institutions slip by. Read More…

PARAPLEGIC GOD

Many say that God can change this country, He can change this world. Yet, God will never make anyone serve Him. He will not make the church witness, He will not make the church repent of their sinful ways, He will not make the church reach out, He will not make the church fight for Him, and He will not make the church study Him. We are the hands of God, but when we do not do what He says, His hands stop working. We leave Him in a state equal to a paraplegic God.

RESEARCH, STUDY, CONCLUSION

Some people are upset because there are various schools looking at taking testing out of the class. Yet, schools no longer teach how to study, how to research, and how to come to a conclusion. This is why most home schooled children have a higher IQ score than corporately schooled children. Our schools merely tell the students what they want them to know and the students don’t study, they memorize answers for the test; only to forget those to memorize new ones for the next test.

The christian colleges and churches are not immune to this pattern of so called teaching. Depending on what college or church one goes to, they are taught the scripture based on the doctrine of belief of that college or church. Read More…

WHAT'S CHANGED?

2 Samuel 12:9 (KJV) 9 Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.

Every pastor teaches from his writings. Every “christian” refers to him; sometimes only as an excuse of their own actions. What has changed? Is not still, the worst thing you could do to a friend is sleep with their girlfriend or wife? What about plotting to kill their friend because they slept with their girlfriend or wife? Read More…

SALVATION BY SPRINGFIELD

There is a Biblical teaching going around my area, and maybe others, called "Be the Church". It's about how the church is NOT the building but the body (1 Cor 6:19). It's not about getting people in the church so the pastor can get them saved, its about we the people being the light of the world (Matt 5:4), being a witness to the world (2 Tim 1:8-9), we ALL are priest's (1 Peter 2:5) and are suppose to be building the Kingdom of God (Matt 25:14-30) through our love for one another (John 13:34-35) and helping those in need (Matt 25:31:46).

Yesterday, after church, I decided to take my wife and mother shooting. My mother had never shot a hand gun before so I did not want to go to the indoor range near the house. Honestly, with lack of experience in all matters of hand gun use and safety, I was afraid both her and I would be embarrassed by something she would say or do. You should know, it's situations like these that will build patients (Romans 12:12), and it will build faith in your God for your protection. After asking for prayer from my pastor friend, I drove her sixty miles to an outdoor range, in the middle of now where for privacy. Read More…
