Hope not Nostalgia

Nostalgia is about wanting to go back to what was... and that's not us. Nostalgia is desire to return to the past and such thinking steals our hope and our future. The sin of the Israelites as they started into the wilderness was nostalgia. "The Israelites said to them, “Oh, how we wish that the... Continue Reading →

God’s Big Sign

I'm just trying, tryMaybe someday I could flyLooking down at the cold cold cityThe calm cool skiesAnd the bird are humming their rhymesAnd the creeps are planning their crimesThe graffiti walls standing tallAnd the church is waiting for God's big sign - Mediterranean Waters, Steven Delopoulos Evil is loose on the world violence and destruction...

A Good Opinion

This meme made its rounds on social media for a time; and I absolutely love it, mostly because the irony of the picture seems to be lost on most of those who posted it. A character who is known for exaggerated unintelligent opinions has become a statement for one's freedom of expression. Personally I laughed... Continue Reading →

Can’t We Just Talk?

Yesterday i had a woman tell me that I should avoid talking to her because w disagree on most major issues in politics and religion. I had simply asked her what she meant in a statement.

With All Your Mind

Sitting on my bookshelf is my Granddad's copy of "88 reasons Why The Rapture Will Be in 1988" (I think he kept it for a laugh). That booklet was based on Hal Lindsey's "The Late Great Planet Earth". Much of that same line of thinking continues in books like John Hagee's "Four Blood Moons". Thankfully,... Continue Reading →
