New Direction – Introduction

New Direction – Introduction

Salutations. Through the centuries, God’s spirit has led his people in new directions.  Using pillars of fire and cloud, He took his people from Egypt to the promised land.  With His Son, He showed us the higher law of love.  With an outpouring of His Spirit, He gave His body new gifts and abilities.  Throughout […]

What in a name? Everything.

What in a name?  Everything.

This is a follow up to my last post. Recently, I contacted a local pastor to discuss evangelicalism and challenges in the Salt Lake Valley area.  The time we spent together over a meal went rather well.  We lost track of time talking about numerous topics, despite our dramatically different backgrounds.  Later, I sent a […]

First, my […]

Protestantism: Catch 22… Or Is It?

Salutations. For the most part, I plan to avoid lengthy studies into the finer details of theology.  They not only do little to move a post modern mindset so prevalent in our world today, but I believe scripture teaches us that God desires we focus our time and energy serving Him faithfully, primarily by loving one another.

Actions Speak Louder

Actions Speak Louder

Note: This is part of a series dealing with Christianity and Post Modernism. “The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians: who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.”  – Kevin Max “We are […]
