The Tale of Two Goats

I have been on a quest for so many years.  I literally have set this aside so many times in the last 12 years.  I have always wanted to understand why two goats are used during the Jewish festival of Yom Kippur.  What I have read and what I have studied just didn't add up.… Continue reading The Tale of Two Goats

Missing Something?

The idea that we are missing something from God: His love, His forgiveness, His salvation, His peace has been perpetuated by the church for hundreds of years. This idea stems from the belief that our behavior causes God to turn from us when we have missed the mark otherwise known as sin. When we get… Continue reading Missing Something?

What If?

As I began my morning, seeing an almost full moon and knowing what that represents this week, I began thinking about what happened a little over two thousand years ago today, Good Friday.  Once again the question drifted in my thoughts...What If.....and here is what I saw... I could see the dusty road and a… Continue reading What If?

Be Like the Moon

“Levels” give off the idea that somehow, just like in the world, we must work for what we receive in God's kingdom and that somehow if we do work harder than we will have MORE in Christ, get more from God, have more authority, or are better than others at perceived "lower levels". This simply… Continue reading Be Like the Moon

Impartation???

One of the things I tried to teach my children was to appreciate their strengths all the while appreciating others strengths. I could use several examples of this here. Yet, this is the best one that will simply explain what I mean and why. When they were little we would go shopping at Costco. At… Continue reading Impartation???

The Realization

In my last blog post, Spirit of ???, I ended with this scripture from 2 John: Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides… Continue reading The Realization

Spirit of ???

In my last blog, How to Pray…Unceasingly, I stated I wanted to delve into a couple of subjects a little further.  The second subject is the “religious spirit”.  The term “religious spirit” is not in the Bible.  You can try to search for it and it does not come up.  I think we are calling something… Continue reading Spirit of ???

More of God?

The year is 66 A.D. or maybe 67 A.D.  and Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, finds himself once again arrested by the Roman Empire.  But this time it is much different.  Instead of being under house arrest he finds himself in a dungeon in chains.  To be more specific in Nero's… Continue reading More of God?
