Why do we settle for less when we could have more? Huh? I thought our theme for life was “I want it, I want it all, and I want it now”. So where does this settle for less thing even come from?
The Greatest Commandment - Matthew
We have yet another Evangelical Republican claiming that their people are being raised up by God. Of course, they feel this is a good thing. The problem is, the Bible shows many instances where people are raised up by God to teach His people a lesson. When will Christians learn the reality of their claims that God is “on their side”? The reality is that God is on God’s side.
How does Hosea apply to an unrepentant world today? First, do you know who Hosea is? He’s an Old Testament prophet, sent by God to give a warning to His people. Sadly, things haven’t changed all that much. The message is all too relevant, even here in the year 2023. Almost 2,800 years later.
Did you see all the fish that died on the beaches in Texas? And have you seen the stuff on how this points to the end of the world? I have a different question. Did God make lots of fish die? Or, did God know that we were going to make all those fish die? And does it matter?

So we end up with Christianity and politics make strange bedfellows.

Because some religions do intentionally have the government, politics and governmental laws, integrated with their theology and religious laws.
An after school Satan Club. It’s not in “the classroom”. It’s not about religion. It’s only about free speech. It’s all good, right? So what could go wrong?
Do entitled Christians make you want to avoid church? What if you go to church to serve God. And you run into a bunch of people who feel like they’re entitled to have the church serve them? Does that turn you off? Or does it make you want to be like them?
Four years ago, I wrote Christians and abortion: Will Christians abandon God over abortion? The impetus for it was Disney, the state of Georgia, and proposed abortion legislation. Well, things have changed dramatically since then. Therefore, my new question for this update is Will abortion drive people away from Christianity?
