man-of-god: The phrase “God hates the sin, loves the sinners.” is not biblical. I have been studying this a lot, and it sounds nice on a coffee mug, t-shirt, and when evangelizing so not to offend anyone, but my job is not to sugar coat half truths and make them visible for…

I’m back! Thank you all so much for waiting during my internet fast! I love you all and thank you for your support. I had a lot of reflecting to do. This helped me keep my priorities straight especially since school just started up.

Why would God want to throw up “Christians”? Lukewarm things are not good. For example there is hot chocolate or cold chocolate milk....
Food as an idol
Do you think restaurants are sacred places where people go to worship? Paul says that for some people their God is their stomach. We’re the nation that invented ‘all-you-can-eat.’ Some of you know how many shrimp you can eat. You know exactly. You go to other countries - you say ‘I’d like a Coke’ and they bring you a 12 ounce can of Coke. Here, they bring you a bucket, a straw, and a scooter...
You want to be radical? →
austonjones: Do you ever get tired of hearing people say something like, “I want to do something radical for Jesus, I just don’t know what.” I do. I can appreciate the sentiment, but what most people have in mind as radical is going off to some foreign country and possibly dying in the name of Jesus. If…

I’m currently reading through Holy Living by Jeremy Taylor. I highly recommend it. I enjoy reading the works of deceased theologians, Puritans, Anglicans, etc. There are these amazing godly people are so passionate for Christ. It seeps out through their soul and into their writing. I wish hope these people exist. I mean so many of them existed back then but now? I’m sure some do but I...
