Superior Freedom

Culture is downstream from the Kingdom of God, not the other way around. What this means is that our identity and influence first must come from Kingdom realities, which will then influence our culture. Yet, many followers of Jesus are more culturally-driven than Kingdom-driven. This is why we need our thinking and way of living reshaped and reformed. Continue reading

CRT and the new Fascism

“Ironically, not since the Aryan obsession in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, or South African Apartheid in the second half of the 20th century, has a social movement been so obsessed with race.” This is quote from James Lindsay in the following video that I’m including as a supplement to my last post.

Exposing the CRT race grifters in real time

I’m posting the following conversation because it goes deep into the labryinth of Critical Race Theory (CRT), revealing, in real time, how its academic purveyors manipulate and bully anyone who doesn’t agree with their narrative. It also shows us how we can pushback on these Neo-Marxist activists who push getting CRT in the K-12 classrooms. Continue reading

Fascism and Communism: two sides of the same coin

“He’s a Fascist! “You’re a Communist!” From listening to the political rhetoric these days you would think that to be a Socialist or Communist is a leftist position and to be Fascist is a far-right position, but you would be wrong. Both Communism and Fascism are forms of Socialism. While their respective ideologues did hate each other, both were collectivist Socialists that were in competition for dominance in the early 20th century. For instance, the NAZIs were the National SOCIALIST Party of Germany. Continue reading

Surrender Shift

“It’s the inside-outside, upside-down kingdom where you lose to gain and you die to live.” This is a lyric from Misty Edwards’ song, “Servant of All.” While we may give the thought of this a hearty “amen!”, do we understand how it actually works? For when we do, we will begin to understand how to walk in the power and wisdom of God’s endless life. Continue reading

Our greatest witness

We don’t prove that Christ is real by philosophical argumentation, although that may help our minds sort out what we already believe. Philososphy can only show us why there must be a God, why we continue to exist, but it cannot give us an experience of God. And only our experience of Christ changes us, which is also our greatest witness that He’s real and very much alive. Continue reading

His love makes us brave!

When we let our hearts be nourished in God’s infinite love, our resolve is strengthened and we find great courage.  This is a vital spiritual key for our soul to resist the tryanny that I talked about last time. As the song goes, “You make me brave!” I was pondering this in my devotions last week when reading the following in Second Thessalonians. Continue reading

How to resist tyranny

The political battlelines in America (and the West) are no longer drawn between Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives. Those days are long gone. It’s now between those who cherish individual freedoms and those who want to control every aspect of your life, those who love America and our way of life and those who hate America and want to destroy that way of life. As we see our country become increasingly more Orwellian, how do we effectively resist this descent into tyranny? Continue reading

“Just as He said!”

As I was finishing my devotional reading of Matthew’s Gospel, I was struck by the words that the angel spoke to Mary Magdalene and the other Mary when they came to Jesus’ tomb on that glorious morning. What struck me was how good this news really is and what a healing balm it is to our soul, considering how often good news in this life doesn’t live up to expectations. Continue reading
