TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET?

Where in a handbasket

WHAT DO WE DO NOW IF THE WORLD IS HEADING TOWARD HELL IN A HAND BASKET?

I found this online and I have to say I am not too happy about it. Sure the people there dress a little funny and their property could use a little cleaning up but do they really need to be harassed for being organic?

Now I personally am not there yet with the whole “organic” thing but each day I see more and more reason to move somewhat in that direction. I still eat meat from the store and buy food out of the “organic” section to save money. I hear arguments on both sides about one is better than another or that there is no difference. Either way, wouldn’t it be great to grow your own food? I am seeing increased concerns about food shortages and a serious lack of natural resources verses the population’s growth and consumption.

RELEASE THE LION WITHIN

RELEASE THE LION WITHINLion king

“The Hebrew word for holy is kodesh, which means separate, set apart. As Balaam, the gentile prophet, stated, ‘It is a people that shall dwell apart’ (Num. 23:9). The modern connotation of holy misses this, relating the word to being worthy of adoration. It is no wonder the Talmud likens the translation of the Hebrew Bible into other languages to a lion locked in a cage, comparing it to the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.” Continue reading

The Generation Gap

Numbers 14:18 The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.

If the sins of the father carry over, so too couldn’t his blessings and mercy?

papago I am so excited! See that mountain? That is now one of several right outside our backdoor! We’ve been dying to get out and explore the trails. Unfortunately, we’re five days in and haven’t been able to.

It’s funny how change….whether good or bad, can bring a combination of emotions.

Frustration. Of course there are the usual daily frustrations, but this change brought about some of its own. I think Daniel feels them more than I do. While we were moving, he tweaked his knee. While he’s in no way incapacitated, walking is not comfortable for him. He’s been wanting to get out on the trails so badly, but doesn’t want to risk further injury. As for me, I’d rather share the experience with Daniel, so am content with waiting. My frustrations lie with my own negligence. Two days after moving in and unpacking, I’m asking “Where is my…

“Jimmied Letters” A LETTER TO RON MOSBY

“Jimmied Letters”
A LETTER TO RON MOSBY

This is a letter to a man I met named Ron Mosby whom I think to be an upright and Godly man.

CONSIDER THIS GOOD BROTHER

Consider the possibility that the Bible is in fact written with another purpose other than to show the might and majesty of God. Imagine if there was more to it than stories, laws, rules, songs and parables. What if God authored the book as a lesson book, not for the next life alone but for the one we are living now? I have known a great many Christians that claim salvation yet suffer in their own minds. Is it possible that freedom could start on the inside? Continue reading

BIBLICAL SYMBOLS FOOD

food

When most people read the Bible there seems to be a limitation to their understanding based on certain symbols used in the Scriptures. The stories are easy enough to read, but it is often hard to understand some of the deeper meanings if you do not understand the significance of symbolic items used such as: garments, trees, mountains, lakes, animals, etc. When you can understand the significance of these items you will gain a greater clarity into your studies. What symbolic truth can we learn from this word?

FOOD
To eat something in the Bible means to gain the strength of the thing you consumed. To understand. Continue reading

Today is Fat Tuesday 2014

Today is Fat Tuesday. Why does that sound like a missing Addams Family child?

I never fully understood the need for Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras, or as Teresa reminded me it’s Fasnachts day, to which I replied “What’s Fraschnatchsneraster’s day?” I guess it’s PA Dutch or Amish for donuts. Apparently in Lancaster the Amish would use up the lard and sugar before Lent. Now I am not sure about you but even Lent doesn’t make sense to me. Why is there cycles of bingeing and purging at all? Basically, Margi Gras has something to do with the need to let out your wild side before you have to reign it in for a religious holiday? Continue reading
