Traditions.

April 25, 2014. Are traditions good? Are they bad? I have heard people be vehemently against traditions and others be dead set on them. Today I would like to take a closer look at traditions, their pros and cons, and let you decide what is biblically taught about them. I am a proponent that many…

Memorials.

April 19, 2014. “When all the nation had finished passing over the Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua, “Take twelve men from the people, from each tribe a man, and command them, saying, ‘Take twelve stones from here out of the midst of the Jordan, from the very place where the priests’ feet stood firmly,…

Hard teachings of Christ.

March 31, 2014. “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your…

The gift of the Holy Spirit.

March 25, 2014. About three years ago I went on a spring retreat with the CSC for the first time and the subject was the Holy Spirit. I’ll have to admit I learned a lot that weekend, as I had not been taught or done a completely thorough study about the Holy Spirit. It seemed…

Couplets of wisdom.

March 10, 2014. The book of Proverbs is a favorite amongst many Christians all around the world. The wisdom of Solomon is preserved through the verses penned in this book of solace (though not all of the book is by Solomon, as is a common misconception).

No balm in Gilead.

February 22, 2014. Today I am attending Challenge Youth Conference as a recruiter for the CSC on UTC‘s campus. I was able to sit in on part of a lesson given this morning where the speaker was going over a section in Jeremiah. I liked this section so much, I decided to do today’s post…

A perspective on truth.

February 19, 2014. Today’s post might lean more towards logic and philosophy than you have been accustomed to when it comes to the subject of religion. Don’t be frightened, I’m not going to get too metaphysical or anything. However, I do believe that there is a certain amount of logic and reasoning that can be…

Stories.

February 4, 2014. Today I’ll keep my post short and sweet, mainly because I am talking at devo tonight and I’m running on around 10 hours of sleep in the past few days. Nevertheless, what I am going to talk about, on here and later on tonight, is one of my favorite thing to do…
