The Woman’s Head Covering

Every year I read 1 Corinthians 11:1-16. Most years I read it more than once, and every time it bothers me. As a woman should I wear a head covering. I see those denominations that wear doilies on their head and I wonder, “Do they have that part right?”...

So you want to be blessed . . .

All the time I hear from people that they don’t believe in God because they see too much evil. Others want God’s blessings, they don’t understand why God isn’t giving them more because they believe and pray. Most Christians understand that salvation is a free gift. Even the ones...

Born with a Deadly Disease

There are a lot of questions in Christianity that have no really great answers. I think God describes the reason for this in Isaiah 55:9: “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” The biggest...

Teen to Parent and Back at ya’

One of my young Facebook friends posted the following list: WHAT I WITH MY PARENTS COULD UNDERSTAND – When I hang out with a boy/girl it doesn’t mean he/she is my boyfriend/girlfriend – School is hard and I’m trying my best – I’m a teenager, I don’t always have...

Religion or Relationship

A Facebook friend asked about our opinions on the difference between religion and relationship. I have to admit, that’s one of my favorite Christian discussions. You see for a long time I lived under the umbrella of religion. I knew all the rules and I was pretty good at...

More Thoughts on Current Events

Again, I need to preface everything I write reminding folks that my stance if from a Christian perspective for Christians. God says that I am not to judge (even the actions) of those outside the church. But here’s a question for those who support the Supreme Court ruling about...

It’s Time to Speak Up

John 3:17 says For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. So I assume it’s not my job to condemn. In fact it’s that thought that has kept me quiet when perhaps I should not have...

Discouraged

One person read my blog post last night . . . pretty sure that’s it. I guess it’s good that I write more to get things off my chest than to have them read. I’ve been on Facebook a good bit today . . . probably more than I...
