The Order of Death

tetons

Fall is a delicious, aromatic time of year. I love walking outside and drinking in the earthy combinations—the smell of moist, crunchy leaves under my feet, ripe apples wafting through the air, and wood smoke as my neighbors start up their cozy fireplaces for the winter. But there is always a part of fall that is sad to me. It is the part about death and the oncoming winter…

Allowing the Questions

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.

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…

Dancing and Liberated in the Wilderness

While it is good to learn from each other, as iron sharpens iron, don’t let anyone tell you that you must follow certain doctrines and dogmas in order to follow God, or that you must be “educated” before you can study the Scriptures for yourself. These things are a great deterrent to the beauties and mysteries God wants to reveal to you as you follow Him, dancing and liberated through the wilderness. Read more…
