A lot of people are talking about and asking about the radiation from the Japanese reactors. Should we be worried? Is the government lying? Is the media over-hyping? Nothing I’m going to say or print here is definitive or authoritative. Just another voice in the wind. So take it for what it’s worth. The principle I always start with is “follow the money”, and in a broader sense, who benefits from a particular reaction? Look at who benefits from raising the scare level of the nuclear situation in Japan: Environmentalists: any nuclear concern helps them with their extreme, anti-human, anti-American agenda Politicians: never let a good crisis go to waste (works hand in hand with the environmentalists) Companies that can profit from it: survivalists, green […]
(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Ephesians 5:3 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; (NKJV) (Previous devotionals can be found at www.seriousfaith.com)The problem of lust, impurity and immorality is a major issue with both genders today. Our society is plagued with sexual immorality and the church is no less affected.The Internet has been unique in both its blessing, and its curse. Immorality in every form imaginable is at your fingertips via the Internet. Because of this fact, I have investigated, tested and used many programs for monitoring and accountability for computers and the Internet. The two best that I have found are “Covenant Eyes” and “I […]
James 4:5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”? (NKJV) A yearning, jealous Holy Spirit. Bet you haven’t thought about that concept in a while. What is James talking about? Why is the Holy Spirit jealous? What is He jealous about? And what does it mean “yearn jealously”? Let’s look at the two words first:Yearn: (Greek: epipotheo) – to long for, to intensely desire, to pursue, to great desire Jealously (Greek: phthonos) – envious, zealous; fearful or wary of being supplanted; apprehensive of losing affection or position; resentful or bitter in rivalry; inclined to suspect rivalry; vigilant in guarding something; intolerant of disloyalty or infidelity. Here’s the “what”: a Holy Spirit who is intensely […]
Luke 23:24 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” (NKJV) Who killed Jesus? You did. I did. The Romans. The Jews. Religion. Everyone. No one. Recently, I heard yet another silly human documentary on “who really killed Jesus?”. The usual suspects were paraded through talking about how the Gospels aren’t reliable and the Bible was written by fallible men with religious and political agendas. Yawn. Then came the “ don’t blame the Jews, it’s an anti-Semitic conspiracy” segment. You can’t say “the Jews” killed Jesus because that’s a political conspiracy and discrimination. Yawn. Since the movie came out, it’s a requirement to relate Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ to the “controversy”. The Pope is often quoted, who […]
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, (NKJV) (Previous devotionals can be found at www.seriousfaith.com)I have often said or written “the evidence for the existence of God, the authenticity of the Bible, and support for the life of Jesus Christ is so overwhelming and undeniable, that any honest person seeking the truth can come to no other conclusion but to believe”. Of course that statement is met on a regular basis with much eye-rolling, skeptical comments and general dismissals. My thought for today comes from something I was asked: “when the Truth is so obvious, how come people still don’t believe it?“. That’s a great question, especially in […]

Question:Does the bible have all the answers for everything? Is the bible written by God, or is it written by Humans? Is the bible true, both the old and the new testament? Is the bible open for interpretation? I get these questions a lot when I tell people I am a Christian. I dont know what to answer them. Please help me… Answer:Everything? Of course not. While it clearly addresses many things of Science, it is not a Science textbook. While it contains many principles about health and medicine, it is not a medical text. It has gobs of history, but is not primarily a history book. And so forth…. The part of our life that the Bible plainly says it is sufficient for ALL […]
(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) James 1:2-4 – My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (NKJV) Tough times are a part of our existence. Adversity is a defining characteristic of the human experience. We can’t wish it away, ignore it or positive-confess it out of reality.Today we will look at another possible reason we might experience tough times, one of the Godly responses we can choose and one of the benefits that is possible through suffering. Let’s review our major points so far:We will suffer simply because we live […]
