Colossians 3:12-17; “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But … Continue reading
Our story begins early in Joseph’s life after his dreams of exaltation. When Joseph arrives where his brothers had gathered, he suspects nothing which is natural considering it’s his brothers. As the scene unfolds we see his brothers tearing his … Continue reading
With this title you’re probably ready to or not to read or perhaps just gloss over this article. Why, your attitude most likely stinks; or you’re trying to figure out why someone else’s attitude is the way it is. Many of us … Continue reading
This is how a sense of entitlement which is the answer to why we have such narcissistic behavior, idol worship–worship of self in our culture. We see this in the church…and it’s probably one of the biggest obstacles to spiritual … Continue reading

Having a biblical worldview and practicing biblical ethics are two different things which we are seeing by the two Supreme Court cases in the last two days. These cases don’t speak for the masses of people in our society that doesn’t accept or believe that Homosexual practices are acceptable morally…shouts that we do not practice what we preach!
These cases are a result of our (California) elected officials not upholding the will of the people, and from the President to the Attorney General not upholding the will of the congress because of their own personal belief and acceptance of a homosexual lifestyle.
Those of us who believe opposite as our elected officials believe must understand that our beliefs, no matter how biblical it is, don’t translate into a working moral ethic without it being imparted to the next generations of children and believer of Jesus Christ.
Our lack of practice is a recipe for producing weak Christian children without knowledge or conviction, who mindlessly obey when challenged with sin and corruption. We as adults must produce children who have or retain strong Christian convictions. If they do have Christian knowledge and belief, they do not have sufficient courage or motivation to act upon it or defend it. They sell it out on demand, perhaps mindlessly.
It’s up to us to be the “salt” of our society!
