Science and Religion Are Not So Different

It is common in today’s “scientific” establishments to claim that science and religion are completely opposite or diametrically opposing concepts. There are of course some differences between theology and science; but religion, especially Christianity, and even theology, and science, are all interconnected. God created the universe. God created science. Our entire world is based on the interconnectivity between the material and the spiritual (non-material) worlds. Without “religion”, … read more

Influence Without Authority: How To Receive Answered Prayers & Blessings From God

Over the past weeks I have been reading a book called Influence Without Authority by Allan R. Cohen. The premise of the book is how to influence others when you do not have authority over them, such as an employee influencing a manager, or even two coworkers with equal position in the company. In both cases, one has needs and wants, but does not have the authority … read more

Honoring The Sabbath Isn’t About Strict Rules, It’s A Wonderful Gift From God

Jesus and his disciples were hungry one day on the Sabbath (Saturday), and they went about, as was customary, plucking ears of corn to eat them (Matthew 12:1). It was a normal tradition to do this, especially for the poor. The grain (corn as a grain) fields were available for people to go in and take some to eat if they were hungry. However, the Pharisees, as … read more

America Is Under God’s Judgment, and the Church (and Christians) Are To Blame

Church is not the building. What has your church done for the poor, needy, broken, hurting, homeless today? What do they do every single day? Is it enough? With the hundreds of thousands to million-dollar budgets that churches receive per month, what proportion goes to the community? What proportion goes to pay church salaries and rent for church buildings? There is no need for the church to … read more

Most Important Condition of Salvation: Faith in Christ

Years ago I wrote about the seven conditions of salvation. I wrote six. Why? Because as this website was originally intended for a primarily Christian audience, I assumed the readers would know the seventh condition, which is the most important: Faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Now, however, this website has grown and is getting a good number of views, some from a wider audience … read more

You Could Have Lived A Thousand Years… If

It’s amazing that today I saw a revelation from scripture, wisdom that can only come from God. I’ve read the verse a thousand times; perhaps more. Yet, I didn’t see with such clarity until now. I asked the question many times, but there was no answer, because no one knew. I contemplated for years whether sin could literally result in death, and that if a person did … read more

What Paul Really Meant By The “Law” And Living By Faith

It took a great deal of prayer and thought to open my mind and free me from the enslavement of interpretation. God has finally been able to reveal to me the truth about what the scripture says about “the law”. Having been a lifelong Christian, growing up in the church and being taught the doctrines of the modern church, and of modern Christian culture, which are corrupted … read more

Many Will Be Deceived By Rapture Theology

Many movies have been made and many books have been written which describe a fantasy world where all of the Christians have disappeared and gone to heaven, and then the tribulation occurs. This doctrine, also known as the “pre-tribulation rapture”, meaning a rapture of Christians before the Great Tribulation, is not actually described in the Bible. In fact, this fantasy will send many people to hell, because … read more

Do You Have To Follow The Law?

From a Christian perspective, following the law is not referring to the law of Man, such as our legal system, which is an entirely different topic; but rather, whether we should follow the Law of God, the rules laid out for us in the Bible. The “Law” includes the Ten Commandments of Exodus 20, Levitical laws of the Levitical priesthood of Aaron in the book of Leviticus, … read more

Are You Sleeping? It’s Time To Wake Up

Many Christians today – perhaps most Christians, are asleep, like Jonah in the ship while he fled from the mission God had given him. Are you concerned more about your day-to-day life, what to eat, where to live, how to sleep, what to do, mindless work, pay the bills, politics, sports, or other mindless distractions? Are you preoccupied with gossip, text messaging, video games, hanging with friends, … read more
