3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.5 “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others. 8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in…

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. –Amos 8:11-12
For every house is builded by some man; but He that build all things is God. -Hebrews 3:4
Isaac is my only son. He is a blessing to both Ed, and me. I believe the Lord blessed us with this one. We waited 13 years to have a son, and we were called Abraham, and Sara when he was born. I determined to call Him Isaac, and Ed named him the middle name. […]
You don’t really understand the message of the kingdom if you don’t understand how to think about mammon.
Jesus said do not work for resources that perishes by for eternal rewards.
His words: “Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.”
If you are a zealous foot soldier of Mammon, please you can stop reading at this point. Thank you.
Alright, for others, let’s go on. You need to look at those words of Jesus very well and make a personal decision about it: was he joking or was he serious?
I personally subscribe to the latter. So let’s ask another question, why do most people work? They will say for money. And when they get the pay, it is for things…

“REMOVE THE FICTION FROM YOUR FAITH” maj
As we mature in our relationship with God…
As we receive fresh revelation…
As we supplement our bible study with word study, hermeneutics (interpretation), culture, history, and anthropology…
We will be confronted with information that will challenge our personal/preferred theology, traditions and things we always accepted as true.
If we aren’t careful, we can allow fiction into our faith. We can find ourselves sincerely believing things that aren’t true. Unfortunately, Christianity is fragmented into numerous denominations and groups…and none of US have everything 100% true. That’s we must always be students of the word and have open hearts and minds to growth.
Accepting something false as true is a problem for all Christians, but this can present a challenge to sincere Christians, but especially to Pastors, Ministers, Teachers or Evangelists who must sometimes admit to themselves that even though they are God-called, sincere…

A writer is simply someone who writes.
People write for different reasons and on different platforms and your reason for writing and your platform will to some extent, determine your writing style.
For example, if you are a columnist for a business newspaper or you write the business column for a magazine, your style of writing will be pretty formal and your terminologies will be business-oriented.

The headline in the U.K.’s Daily MAIL online news journal read:
High-fat diets are to blame for 80% of colorectal cancers in U.S.
(REFERENCE TO THE NEWS ARTICLE: HIGH FAT DIETS LINKED TO 80% OF COLON CANCERS)
Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic discovered a specific pathway linking high fat diets to COLON CANCER. Based on this conclusion, I decided to investigate the parameters of the study since the researchers included that “HEALTHY” high fat diets (ex. Ketogenic) placed individuals in the same risk category.
The study was designed using rats divided into two groups. One group received a normal “rat diet;” the second group received:
“a high-fat/HIGH SUCROSE diet (D12331) for 18 weeks.”
The study never stated whether the“HIGH FAT” DIETconsisted of:

When I hit follow, I mean it.
Many WordPress users follow blogs simply to get a follow back. To boost their numbers. I understand this. Because it happens to me so infrequently, getting a follower is like a small hit of crack. A rush.
Topping a milestone, 100, 200, etc, is something more. But I don’t really know what because it’s only happened to me once. A few months ago, I bypassed one hundred followers. And I’m now one away from two hundred.
I won’t trade for follows. I don’t want my reader filled with unreadable content. For the most part, I don’t want to read about travel or makeup or restaurants in a city I’m not planning to visit. I don’t want to read about books I’ll never read. Or movies I’m not going to watch.
I want to read about people. I want to read about goals…
