Time and Energy

It was the spring of 2009. Facebook life was good. You would post what you ate, post a funny meme, or help circulate amazing marvel movie rumors. In 2009 I asked my future wife out on Facebook. Life was good. Today I feel like going on Facebook has become a walking minefield. Every other post is someone arguing with someone else. To be honest, I have begun to avoid Facebook if only because the arguing has gotten worse as the Presidental elections get closer. In my personal time of prayer and scripture, I found this saying, "If you reason with an arrogant cynic, you'll get slapped in the face; confront bad behavior and get a kick in the shins. So don't waste your time on a scoffer; all you'll

Bad Luck Paul

There are some real winners in the Bible. By that, I sarcastically mean that there are a lot of people who have bad luck. Big people who come to mind quickly are Joseph and Job.

Now, more than ever, politics and tribalism pull on America and divides the citizens. As Christians, I believe two things can be agreed upon. First, that Christ prays for his followers to be unified and that through that unity with each other, the world will know Jesus. (John 17: 23) Second, as Christians, we are called to speak up and out to other Christians who are not following Jesus. Tha

Who is Jesus?

For sure, we can say by the way we do history, Jesus was a traveling preacher, who did signs of wonders and healings, had a following of believers, and was killed by the Romans as one seeking to rival the Emperor's claim of lordship. But who did Jesus think he was? Jesus commonly referred to himself as the "Son of Man." At first glance, the title can be seen as someone who is just a human. There are places in the scriptures where this is true. However, there is a clear understanding on Jesus' part that he understood there to be a connection of "Son of Man," to the Daneil 7 figure. The "Son of Man" figure is ... -slain -raised to a position of power next to God -includes a kingdom that is nev
