To the Church in Laodicea

Does anybody really care?

Does anybody really care?

Does anybody really care?  Did you ask, “Care about what”?  Or did you just answer?  If you answered “Yes”, what do you care about?  Maybe the top five things?  If you answered, “No!”, why don’t you care?  On the other hand, if you answered, “I don’t know”, are you still alive?

Take those cute Koalas in the picture.  Do you know, they probably don’t care about much of anything?  They’re so spaced out on Eucalyptus leaves, that’s about all they care about.

Are we the same way?  So spaced out on whatever our favorite escape thing is that we don’t care about anything?  Not about ourselves? Not about each other?

Blessed are the pure in heart

Blessed are the pure in heart

Blessed are the pure in heart.  What does that even mean?  In this day and age, do we even know what the word “pure” means?  And what’s meant by the word heart?  We hopefully know it’s not about someone with a healthy heart pumping pure blood without infections, foreign matter, or other impurities.  But what is it?

Trump religious freedom initiative

Trump’s New Religious Freedom Initiatives – what do they mean?

Trump Announces New Religious Freedom Initiatives.  And Evangelical leaders cheer.  But let’s be honest.  Exactly what do those religious freedom initiatives accomplish?  Oh yeah – businesses are going to be involved too.  Huh?  “Freedom of religion and belief can contribute to a rich pluralism that is itself associated with economic growth.”  Again – Huh?  And since the announcement was at the United Nations, they chimed in as well.  “The UN secretary-general António Guterres, seated to Trump’s right, thanked the President for his focus on religious freedom and praised the recent efforts of Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed al-Tayyib, to promote religious peace and fraternity. He announced two new UN initiatives to support religious freedom—a strategy against hate speech and an action plan to protect houses of worship.”  One more time – Huh?

I’m sorry but, is that what religion is really about?  Pluralism, a condition or system in which two or more states, groups, principles, sources of authority, etc., coexist?  Really?  Contributing to economic growth?  Really?  Religious fraternity?  Really?

Any Christian should be asking, what happened to salvation?

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.
