Religion and Government – their impact on our salvation

Religion and Government – their impact on our salvation.  I wrote this about two and a half years ago.  It’s amazing how much things have changed in that short time.  It look at different forms of government, with different combinations of intertwining between government and religion. 

But now, here in the U.S., it’s getting really hard to tell which one we are anymore.  Less and less a democracy – and more and more a weird kind of theocracy / dictatorship combination.  It’s scary.  Not just for what its doing to our country, but also to our salvation.  Especially those who are pushing and supporting the strange and unBiblical alliances being set up here.

Will religious regulations in China to eliminate God be a blueprint for others to follow?

Part of the goal of the Chinese government is to water down Christianity to the point where it retains so little of Jesus’ teachings that it means nothing in terms of salvation.  In essence, they are trying to put the Chinese people into the scenario of the Church in Laodicea from Revelation.

The problem of love without caring

We use the word love so much these days that it often doesn’t seem to mean much.  There’s lots of love, but without caring. Love without caring.  For instance, I love sushi, especially ikura and uni.  Add a quail egg, and there’s even more to love.  But does that love include caring?  No.  It’s just food, there’s no caring associated with that love.

But then there’s you, the person reading this.  Chances are I don’t know you – and you don’t know me.  How can I love you the same way I love sushi?  But I do care about you.  I care enough about you that I spend lots of time and energy writing things for this site and my other one.  That’s caring without love.  Or is it?

Some questions for Christians on immigrants

Some questions for Christians on immigrants

I have some questions for Christians on immigrants.  What are your feelings towards and about immigrants?  Doesn’t matter if they’re legal or illegal immigrants.  By the way, in the Bible, they were called aliens.  There was nothing about legal or illegal.  Is your view Biblical?  Or is it the one put forth by our President?  I have to ask because, well, it can’t be both.  It’s one or the other. And you know what Jesus said about things that came down to one of two choices.

World's greatest teachers - Seven masters - one path

World’s greatest teachers. Seven masters – one path?

World’s greatest teachers.  Seven masters.  One path.  That’s amazing. The seven greatest teachers in the world all supposedly teaching the same thing.  All leading down the same path.  Awesome.  Unbelievable.  Well, actually, it really is unbelievable.  Maybe because it’s not true?

Yeah – Seven Masters, One Path.  It’s the title of a book that I got an email about today.

Interestingly, and I believe not by coincidence, I got another email today that was about one of those seven great teachers.  Well, actually, it was about all seven of them.

Chinese authorities destroy two Marian shrines

Chinese authorities destroy two Marian shrines – shocking – or expected?

Chinese authorities destroy two Marian shrines.  Some are probably shocked, since the Vatican just signed a mysterious agreement with China related to having the Communist Party in China appoint Bishops of the Catholic Church in that country.  However, if you’ve read China appoints seven Catholic Bishops – did the Pope just sell out underground churches? then you shouldn’t be surprised at all.  If anything, this was to be expected.

So Sad. Can you even imagine Paul or any of the Saints from the early church telling people to Wait for better times because the Roman Empire isn’t eternal?

We can lie to ourselves and each other, but not to God

We can lie to ourselves and each other, but not to God

We can lie to ourselves and each other, but not to God.  As hard as we try, and no matter how much we may convince ourselves of success, we cannot lie to God.  I just read something from nbsnews.com – Ministers interrupt Sessions, are removed from religious freedom conference.  I wish I could say I was shocked by it.  Unfortunately, this kind of thing is happening all too often.  And judging by the reaction of the first comment, people actually go for this stuff.  I’d include the comment, but I’d have to bleep it.

There's always time for God later. Isn't there?

There’s always time for God later. Isn’t there?

“There’s always time for God later.” Have you ever said that?  “Isn’t there?”  But have you ever asked that?  We assume we can get around to God later.  When we have children.  After we’ve advanced in our careers.  After we retire.  After we enjoy our retirement.  But what if we never make it that far?  Or if we forget about God.  What if “later” never comes?

Sure – we’ll get around to God.  Tomorrow.  There’s plenty of time.  Later.  Life’s too short to look for God now.  Before I die.  As long as I’m alive, it’s not too late.  But what if …
