Allowing the Questions

5846604502_9f0e1f509a_b

For most of us worldwide who have come to the firm conclusion that God, like any loving parent, would never destroy or punish most of His own children forever, there is somewhat of a similar “formula” that we have gone through to arrive at this place. It goes something like this…

Following Jesus: An Out of Boat Experience

walk_water_600

In discussing my biblical views with some Christians—especially the one about God saving all—I’m always a little surprised how tightly they cling to every jot and tittle they’ve been taught in church (many of them not even biblical), as if their church (or they themselves) can’t be wrong about anything. Even when you suggest a way of interpreting Scripture that makes a heck of a lot more sense, people don’t want to believe that there is any chance they are wrong, so they don’t even listen to valid or reasonable points I might bring up. I’ve thought a lot about why it’s so hard look at things through new lenses or to question what you’ve been taught. What is it that makes people either too afraid or too stubborn to look at things from a new viewpoint? (Read more…)

Long Live the Egyptian Revolution!

Tikkun Daily: "tekun–to mend, repair, and transform the world" |http://www.tikkun.org/tikkundaily/2011/02/11/the-egyptian-revolution/

This past January, a national revolution took place in literal Egypt. It was spearheaded and organized via a few young people and a Facebook account.

Could this be a significant declaration in our day, announcing the move of the hand of God to further free us from our bonds of slavery? Read more…

Are all those millions of orphans who have never heard about Jesus really going to hell? If that’s true, how come God never said to share the Gospel with them? How come all He said was to take care of them—feed them and defend their rights? If hell is real, isn’t that like patting them on the back before sending them to eternal flames? Read more…

Today’s Hottest Topic: Hell or No Hell?

202872717_a8a4799419_o

Traditional teaching of hell is most definitely a “hot topic” right now, and there’s good reason for it. If you’re inclined to find out if you’ve been misled on this topic, I strongly suggest you read both sides of the argument—with an open mind—and decide for yourself. Dare to question. Dare to ask! It might just be time for all hell to break loose in your life. Read more…

The Word of the Day Century is Revolution

revolution_600

Never in history has there been the opportunities for change like we have today. There’s a sense of global dissatisfaction with injustice, discrimination, poverty, and oppression, and there are the tools in place to give the once silent majority a voice. I can’t help but think, in addition to the many protests and movements of day, that one more overturn is needed—the overturn of the biggest lie of religious history. You can practically hear it rumbling and whistling down the tracks of time. It’s the sound of a Revolution! Read more…
