At some point in history, someone (or someones) determined that they needed to find a better way to be able to see farther and with more clarity than what was physically possible with the naked human eye. It is still a mystery to this day as to exactly who invented it, but the first patent for […]Read More The Nearsighted Church: How to Get Our Telescope Back
You know, around January 1 everybody put out a “Year in Review” blog or Facebook post or something out there in the social media ether discussing 2016. I certainly have my thoughts on 2016, but didn’t want to get washed over by the plethora of writings I’m sure hit the airwaves that day. Now that […]Read More 2016: A Series of Unfortunate Revelations

So your standard for how to vote in this election is Hillary. I get it. I really do. I used to have this same exact mindset as well. You’re going to vote for Trump (lesser of 2 evils) because you feel that Hillary is the greater threat to our freedoms and future. You’re going to […]Read More Whom shall I fear?
Matthew 5:14-16 NLT You are the light of the world–like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket.

I believe that God is a victorious God whose gospel is ever increasing in victory around the world. And with this worldview in mind, I present to you my […]Read More Remember that time…
