There is something going on. And it’s not good.In the past year, I have had countless women bring up the topic of rejection from ‘church ladies’ until I seriously can no longer ignore it. Women from work, cashiers at stores, and—one crazy deal—a woman who remembered me from a retreat we both attended over ten years ago. She walked up in a crowded room and told me she hadn’t been back to a women’s retreat since.
If you’ve been involved with a body of believers (the definition of a church) for any length of time, then you know there is no such thing as a perfect church. You can, however, find a great church home – one in which you can worship God freely, grow in your faith, and reach into your community. You just have to be intentional as you seek your new place of worship.
You can live a life without fear. In the heart of every Navy SEAL there has to be ‘resolve’ to succeed life's greatest hits. Where storms abound. How do you succeed in your mighty storm? In a word, become like Jesus, fearless! You must be resolved! 'All-In' for Jesus no matter the price! Willing to sacrifice it all without a mere blink!
Does God really comfort us like the Bible says? My behavior for many years was that of deception. I was the master of it and I used it well, and unwisely. I knew that had to change in order for any healing to take place in my life and in the lives of those I had deceived.
I recall one Sunday morning our church pastor had the nerve to ask the ladies to ‘tone down’ their dressing. He proved his point when he went on and asked all the men in the congregation if they ever noticed a woman dressing too revealing in church. Shockingly, almost every male hand shot up like a rocket blast! No lie!
Do you believe anything good can come out of life?
Do you live a life of purpose? Death has become very rampant lately.
Just last Wednesday night at Bible study, it must have been about 6 or so deaths that were announced. I may not wake up in the morning, but if I do, it may be the only day I have left to try to get it right this time. I love God and God loves me. God loves you too.
Atheists have declared themselves to be beacons of reason. They denounce Christians as wishful thinkers who run away from reason in order to live deluded lives. They claim to use reason and science to best explain the vast universe we find ourselves in. But are atheists really champions of reason like they claim to be? And are Christians really deluded people just looking for some kind of hope and fulfillment?
The divide on how to handle the issue of same-sex marriage is very apparent in the Christian community. People in the church, including pastors, don’t want to look like bigots, but at the same time we want to hold to our values.
I have only one life to live and I get to live it the way I chose! IT'S MY LIFE!! The way that I see it, if it feels good and no one gets hurt, go for it!!!! Don't need some hypocritical Christian telling me what I can and not do! After all, life is too short!
All this Kim Davis stuff is infuriating. I liked Rubio, but as soon as he applauded Davis in the debate he lost all my consideration. If everyone decided to break the law because their religion, there would be anarchy. And speaking of persecution, is Davis not using her power to persecute gays? I know she's just one example, but the underlying issue with all religion.
