A Brief and True Report of Virginia

The summary of this report makes me wonder why we could have not had better relations with the Indians. The total trust in Christian doctrine is very encouraging. But too often people are want to talk about themselves, appreciate only the lifestyle they know, and fail to listen more heartedly.

Family Revival

Recently I discovered in Psalm 101 a prayer that is directed at a nation that is in danger from corrupting influences of deserting the disciplines that have made our nation great. And I believe the family is our (and God’s) most sacred institution.

Fake News

To me what is worse is these attitudes in our church leaders. The credibility of our faith rests on our integrity. Even when we have point of view an unbeliever would disagree with, they will listen and not reject our faith as long as they can trust that we’re not into conspiracy theories.

Raised with Jesus

Jesus describes how the Comforter/Holy Spirit, God, and Jesus Himself are in constant communication with each other. But the real question is if we’re tuned in to this conversation. Often we’re like the car radio on a long trip and each station we tune in grows fainter as we distant ourselves from the radio tower.

Thinking of Discipleship

Notice that we are baptized into His death. Jesus did not need to recover from His past; but we do. Also notice that we’re not left there. But we are raised to a new life. But we are also called to complete His mission (the salvation of lost souls).

Avoiding the Cross Fire

Jesus was the master at looking below the surface of the issues presented to him. And He knew people’s real motives. While compromise seems like a solution, I think we need to follow Jesus and find the core of each issue, mine for the common ground of the issue with the point of view of others, and build up top a solution using Biblical principles.
