You May Freely Eat! (podcast)

I am posting a message I did at The Gathering Place in Dyersburg, TN.  I believe this is one of the most important messages I have ever released.  Many people see God as being stingy, miserly and withholding. They see Him as angry and judgmental.  But He is not like that.  He is generous and

How to Overcome the Curse of Tomorrow

  Today will lead you into tomorrow but tomorrow will always lead you into today. The meaning of the above statement is that tomorrow never comes.  When you go to sleep at night thinking “I will do thus tomorrow” you wake up and it’s today.  So tomorrow never really comes.  It is always now.  It

Unconditional Love is an Oxymoron

  All of my life I have heard Christians talk about the unconditional love of God.  I’ve heard, and even spoken, about the love of God being without conditions, while people tend to love with conditions.  As I think about love and what love really is, I have come to an understanding that “unconditional love”

Are you a Christian Cannibal?

Sometimes Christians resort to what I would call Christian cannibalism. It’s where we, as fellow believers, tend to eat our own . . . symbolically speaking. It’s what happens when we talk about another believer in a critical, judgmental way.  It’s where we “throw someone under the bus” when they sin in a way that

Are You Being You?

Be yourself!  That’s something that we’ve heard all of our lives.  Yet, so many people, myself included, do not really live as themselves.  We live in such a competitive society where we are always comparing ourselves with others, which tends to cause us to not be comfortable with who we really are. I am not

The Golden Rule = Grace

Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. (Luke 6:31) This is one of Jesus’ most famous and most oft repeated sayings.  This is often called The Golden Rule.  It’s something that most parents try to teach their children.  We see it quoted by Christians and non-Christians alike.  This is really grace

You & Your Thoughts (book review)

I’ve been a Christian now for over 30 years.  I’ve been involved with full-time church work for the majority of my adult life.  If there’s one thing that really irks me about American Christians, especially those of the Pentecostal/Charismatic tribe (of which I hail from), it’s that they don’t think!  We’ve become so used to

How American Christianity Differs From Kingdom Christianity

As a person born in America I am very thankful that I live in this nation.  I did nothing to facilitate that as my parents lived in this nation as did their parents.  Somewhere back in time my ancestors came from other countries to settle in this nation.  For all it’s faults and failures, I still

3 Reasons Why I Struggle to Believe God is Good

There’s a cliché said among Christians where one person will say, “God is good.” Then, another person will say, “All the time. And all the time….” The first person responds back with “God is good.” There’s truth in that. God is good all the time, and all the time God is good. As a follower

In a heartbeat…

No one wakes up and thinks that everything they have in life will be taken from them sometime that day.  We all seem to live like nothing bad is ever going to happen to us.  Most of us do not live with eternity in mind.  This past weekend saw several tornados wreak havoc across the
