A Passion for Christ

Isaiah 53:1-6 1 Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? 2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. 3 He … Continue reading

Accepting Christ

Did I really find and accepted Christ Jesus as Lord & Savior?  If not what really happened? We have all heard people say how they found Jesus or accepted Christ.  We hear about having to make a conscience choice to follow Christ.  We have heard the altar call and the sinner’s prayer.  In this post … Continue reading

Works and Fruitfulness

A lot of times people confuse what a minister means by fruitfulness.  They equate it with good deeds and earning something from God. Psalms 51:16 For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; … Continue reading


I’m usually questioned more by believers about my stance than non believers.  It happens often and it always shocks me.  It shocks me because “christians” argue points that they have no knowledge of.  Not only is it done without understanding but without ever having studying a single bible chapter.  So are they questioning me, challenging … Continue reading

Crucified with Christ

    When Christ died on the cross the work of salvation was completed and Christ provided access for all believers into God’s holy presence. Therefore, salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone. God is a real person and our relationship with Him can be cultivated as with any other relationship. … Continue reading

The Real Issue

Over the past year or so my heart has been heavy and burden about us; Christians. I have a heavy heart because when I look at us I don’t see Spirit filled believers. I see us as people who have been told all our lives what to do and how to be. I see questions … Continue reading

The Problem

I’m in the process of starting a new section on my blog called “Lion Roar”. It is intended to step through a process of helping Christians “live it out now”; meaning living their Christian faith out daily. Reason being that a lot of Christians look at the faith in “one lump sum”. They feel that … Continue reading

Vision Correction

It’s time to see the optometrist…. Let’s say that you are standing at the alter about to marry your spouse; the love of your life.  You state before God, the pastor and the entire congregation that you promise to: Groom: I,____, take thee,_____, to my wedded Wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, … Continue reading

Jesus Christ is God

The eminent British professor and scholar C. S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity: I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one thing … Continue reading

Faith Lives

At first I stood on a foundation of faith based on what God did and I believed what I was taught by men.  This was my baptism of my youth.  Then this changed as I went from living religiously to being religious.  My faith was based on my knowledge and what I could repeat;  all … Continue reading
