The Original Misinformation Campaign

And, while I find blatant misinformation hard to accept from the Justices of the Supreme Court (sound bytes available to prove it) this week, the truth is, we’ve all been there — taking an irresistibly delicious sound byte, blacking out with excitement, seeing red in bloody retribution or rightness, and running with it to share…

Besting 2022

A new year is peeking through my frosted window panes. The north wind of 2021 is frozen in place this week, but it will not stop 2022 from coming. I stand upon the hard middle ground of 40 years now. New Year’s Day no longer appears as the undulating silhouette of mystery – tall, dark,Continue reading “Besting 2022”

Spiritual Travelogue: Why Leave That?

vertheless, I have learned to be grateful for some silences, for the writer’s fears are not unlike the writer’s friends’ own. I have flayed my heart, time and time again

Part 3: Conversion, Context, & Evidence (‘In Spirit’)

“To enjoy in experience what is true of me as in Him, I must learn what it is to walk in the Spirit. It is historic fact that in Christ my old man was crucified, and it is a present fact that I am blessed ‘with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ’Continue reading “Part 3: Conversion, Context, & Evidence (‘In Spirit’)”

Part 2: Structures ‘In Spirit & in Truth’

How a thing starts often sets the course of orthopraxy (church practices). It is impossible not to notice the two very different structures adhered to between Charismatic / Full Gospel / Evangelical and the more traditional, even Catholic, structures of those who follow liturgies or the formal training of Presbyterian / Lutheran / Methodist /Continue reading “Part 2: Structures ‘In Spirit & in Truth’”

The Church ‘In Spirit & In Truth’ (And Those Seeking)

What if I told you that there is an entire population of sheep desiring to be in church, wanting to be in communion with the saints, moving in and out of your churches in search of Living Water, lacking an earthly Shepherd? Certainly, one pastor might say: “These are the malcontents.” Indeed, another hireling supposes:Continue reading “The Church ‘In Spirit & In Truth’ (And Those Seeking)”

Making The Secular Sacred (And Other Damnable Lies)

It’s amazing how many scripture verses an article can be smeared with while still denying the truth. The Pharisees were expert at this too… I came across an article this morning titled, “A Note of Sanity about Halloween”, written by a “disciple”, Joe McKeever. After setting up with a story about someone who was literallyContinue reading “Making The Secular Sacred (And Other Damnable Lies)”

SPIRITS & THE SPIRIT OF…

Line upon line, the book itself looks so unassuming sitting there in the chair across the room, but I give it a wide berth anyway, because the jots and tittles seem to tower to the heavens; I feel that if I read one more word, the whole thing — already leaning overhead — will comeContinue reading “SPIRITS & THE SPIRIT OF…”

THE BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE

“Your words have been arrogant against Me,” says the Lord. “Yet you say, ‘What have we spoken against You?’ You have said, ‘It is vain to serve God; and what profit is it that we have kept His charge, and that we have walked in mourning before the Lord of hosts? So now we callContinue reading “THE BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE”

Countless souls jeopardized by a global training exercise…

Imagine, if you will, a training exercise. An epic, global training exercise. An exercise well-planned by experts who have concocted an infectious disease scenario to usher in a ‘global reset’ — that is, a resetting of economic, governmental, and national orders. But, imagine, if you will, that this is only a drill… What latent effectsContinue reading “Countless souls jeopardized by a global training exercise…”
