What kind of music hates God?

music clef sound by geralt at pixabay

This can be a complex and contentious issue. Let’s not make useless rules and regulations. Let’s not make judgments. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to work in our consciences to help us live a godly life. Consider what the Apostle Paul wrote at the closing of his letter to the Christians at Philppi… And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and Continue reading

What about a statement of faith?

20141024_083824_2

Most Christian churches and organizations write a statement of faith to document their understanding of the Bible so you can know what they believe. We have resisted doing this for fear that we would put an arbitrary gloss on one portion of scripture over another. But, in this age of world-wide communication through the internet, I think it would be wise to have something available. Therefore, I have attempted to list some Bible verses that I believe are non-negotiable truths… Continue reading

No exceptions

God’s rules don’t have exceptions… OBEY GRAVITY IT’S THE LAW God is perfect; therefore His laws, His rules, and His regulations are perfect — no exceptions. This is one of the most important concepts in real Bible-believing Christianity. If you can accept this concept, if you can understand this concept, and if you can apply this concept, you will save yourself from a lot of man-made religious grief. Consider these rules… All have sinned and fall short of the glory of Continue reading

What motivates you?

banner - attitude matrix proud arrogant humble submissive

There are 2 character traits that are very important for service to the Lord: humility and submission. Humility about yourself towards others and towards God. Submission first to God and then to each other. Without these character traits, the Apostle Paul said you will be just like a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. All noise. No benefit. If you consider these opposite character traits, it is obvious why pride and arrogance cannot serve the Lord. Is arrogant pride motivating you to Continue reading

Post by Celebrate Recovery Granbury TX. This video expresses a very common condition of many Christians.

Why? Because there are many false gods and many false religions. But, only one man said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)” The life that man Jesus Continue reading

This is a very important question. All the religions of the world differ in their response. Each religion makes requirements of what you need to bring to God. Each religion describes what makes God happy. But, what does the Bible say? What can we bring to the Lord? How can we make God happy?

3 ways to overcome procrastination

banner-3-ways-to-overcome-procrastination

The Bible doesn’t use gentle euphemisms like “procrastination” it gets right to the nitty-gritty reality with the real name “laziness.” The Bible doesn’t dance around with feel-good psycho-babble, it warns of the dangers… How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? … and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man. (Proverbs 6:9-11) As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so are sluggards Continue reading
