Welcome

Over the years I have written several "book" or "booklets" and many, many, many newsletter and bulletin articles. Because the book market seeks writings to meet specific needs at specific times, my material has never been accepted. I have a tendency to write what is on my mind and so I am left with self publishing. So, with the encouragement from my wife and others, I am beginning this blog in order to put my "ramblings" "out there"! I hope you enjoy!

Disclaimer

Please note that while my intentions are to use good grammar, because of the way in which some of the material presented here is presented (orally) the grammar and syntax might not always be the best English. Also note that good theology is not always presented in the best English so there may be times when the proper grammar rules are purposely broken.

More To Think About

What is wrong with this quote?
Quote taken from a Facebook post quoting about the Dali Lama, “One of the things I like most about being Buddhist is that we don’t flatter ourselves with the ridiculous claim that we have the only right answer.”
One of the main reasons Christians, true Christians are hated is because of Jesus’ own exclusive claim that He is the one and only way to eternal life. Apart from Jesus there is and can be no eternal life. Interestingly enough He even states that narrow is the way to eternal life, and broad is the way to destruction.

The corollary of this quote is that all religions are the same, worshiping the same God just calling him by a different name. As you read the explanations as to why we should believe this heresy and if you actually read the heresy, you will make note of the point that never do those who suggest all religions are the same, speak about Jesus’ death and resurrection.

The Christian Church is different from all other religions, cults and sects because we have a God who is alive. We have a God who entered our world to save us from our sins. We have a God who loves us so much that He gave His life for ours and, after giving His life, He rose from the dead.

The exclusive claim of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone is not flattery, but is truth. Unfortunately, for those who do not believe, only at the end will they truly understand their folly and then they will try to blame God for their refusal of faith.
