The Armor of God

Why can't America deal with the Coronavirus?

Why can’t America deal with the Coronavirus?

Why can’t America deal with the Coronavirus?  Maybe for the same reason we can’t seem to deal with much of anything these days?  We’re so split on just about every issue.  If you ask people what color is the sky, I bet we couldn’t even agree on that!

But maybe it’s not what you think.  I don’t believe it’s really political, although that seems to be a big factor.  I don’t think it’s race either, even though that also appears to be another big factor.  The question is, are those really the problem?  Or are they symptoms of the real problem?

Does God punish us today, like when He didn't allow Moses to enter the Promised Land?

Will God punish us today, like when He didn’t allow Moses to enter the Promised Land?

Does God punish us today, like when He didn’t allow Moses to enter the Promised Land?  That’s a question that came up when we were studying one of the Beatitudes – Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.  You can maybe see how the question might arise.  And how it seems important.  After all Moses did to lead God’s people in the Exodus, he didn’t live long enough to set foot in the Promised Land.  So what chance do we have?

Is teaching the Bible in public schools a good idea?

Is teaching the Bible in public schools a good idea?

Is teaching the Bible in public schools a good idea?  I dare say, most non-Christians answer that question with a great bog “No!”  But what about Christians?  Do Christians think it’s a good idea for public schools to teach the Bible?  For what it’s worth, President Trump and the Supreme Court of the U.S. both say it’s at least legal.  And while the legal issues play a big part in the discussion, that’s not my question.  My question for Christians to pray about and answer is whether or not it’s a good idea.

Christianity signing its own death warrant

Is liberal Christianity signing its own death warrant?

Is liberal Christianity signing its own death warrant?  That question was from 2012.  Maybe a better question for today is whether Christianity is signing its own death warrant – liberal or otherwise.  However, I think the best question is can Christianity sign its own death warrant.

Take a stand!

What I’m looking at for this topic is the kind of slavery we allow to come on ourselves.  It starts as something “innocent”, or so we think.  It’s a thrill, or so we think, We can control it, or so we think.  Then it ruins our lives, maybe even in spite of what we think.  It could be nearly anything – work, money, alcohol, drugs, sex, pornography – you name it, we can become addicted to it. Those are the kinds of things Paul was talking about in Galatians.
