Are We Trying to Make God Mad?

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Parents often ask their children questions.  Some are productive – “What did you learn in school today?”  Some are inane – “How many times do I have to tell you….”  Some questions are not even real questions – “Son, would you want to take out the garbage?”  My mother actually asked me that!  When I […]

Wonders from the Word – IT (Matthew 6:34)

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Darkness descends upon my soul. “It” is here again. Hope disappears; today brings despair. Why is it that whenever “It” intrudes, raising it’s monstrous head, the rest of my life seems almost totally worthless? Realistically though, my one “It” is vastly outnumbered by hundreds, maybe even thousands of blessings. Dwelling on that thought, I feel […]

Did Jesus Fulfill All the Messianic Prophecies?

Monday, September 24th, 2007

  Did Jesus Fulfill All the Messianic Prophecies? To help separate my comments and observations from the source, his material will be in “Times New Roman” while the font for mine will be “Ariel.” INTRO: A.         As a believer, the obvious answer should be to us, that Jesus did fulfill all the Messianic Prophecies.  However, […]

Prisons

Friday, September 21st, 2007

Prison – not a pleasant subject, but nevertheless still a former or current reality for some believers.   Others – never imprisoned – should have been, but escaped their proper penalty due to either God’s gracious attention or man’s negligent inattention.  Most, if not all, of us are nevertheless in prison – and that is the […]

The Mystery of the Cross

The Mystery of the Cross[1] INTRO:A. Illustration: George Berkeley’s Falling TreeMost people believe that Philosophy is boring, useless and weird. That is probably why I majored in it in College. I therefore find a little self-satisfaction in knowing that the word philosophy simply means love of wisdom. Therefore, borrowing from my syllogistic training in logic, […]

Wonders from the Word – A Child Shall Lead Them (Matthew 18:3)

Monday, September 17th, 2007

            One Monday night, a prayer ascended to heaven.  My oldest girl, Rachel, then seven years old, was looking forward to turning eight in a few days.            Trying hard not to be a selfish child, she did not ask God for toys, dolls, and games.  No, what she asked for  was far more amazing.  Her […]

A Christological Treatise: The Attributes of Deity With Application to the Incarnation

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

                                                                                                                 INTRODUCTION The purpose of this essay is to define the “Kenosis” by defending the thesis that Jesus retained all essential, divine, attributes while incarnated.  Our apologia will be buttressed by understanding the role and working of these attributes in non-incarnated Divinity before applying them to Jesus’ fleshly experience.

Would That Make You Happy?

Friday, September 7th, 2007

Last winter, someone had given a loved one some present money.  How should he spend it?  Should he spend it on himself?  But bills, bills, and the other unending bills, seemed to be the preferred place to spend that gift.  After all, there are always bills to pay.  Then the recipient came across the opportunity […]
