We’re Animals with Advanced Souls

With shows like the brilliant West World and the new equally brilliant Raised by Wolves, both on HBO MAX here in the states, the topic of what is reality is hotter than ever, reaching mainstream homes. But in our quest to find the answers we must not allow ourselves to be so overloaded and confused with questions that we ignore some of the answers.

Hot Sex & Jesus

The subject of sex, not what sex you are, but the act of sex, is one of the most, if not the most, contentious subjects in Christian Faith and philosophy.

What Do You Love Most?

Would I unravel in the same way in the absence of God? Do I love God in that same profound heart-pounding way? Think about it. Isn’t it the same? Shouldn’t we experience the love of God on that deep primal level, even more so?

Do not be afraid, God is in you, always…

It is understandable that people need God right now. They’re seeking refuge in his houses of worship and in the people, who offer hope. But there is a far greater lesson, ‘He is already there with you.’

Fear is the Real Pandemic

We’re truly lucky that we live in a time that has the resources and money to tackle a crisis such as this. We can be certain that people and industries are working tirelessly for innovative solutions. But the real innovation is the humankind. Yes, there are those thinking selfishly, but the majority are doing the opposite, selflessly offering themselves to others. What a beautiful thing to witness, man helping man.

Staying or Going?

The biggest challenges for me as a Pastor are convincing non-believing people that God does exist, and then, guiding those willing to accept the journey to the right place to find God.

“What you do to the least of these you do to me?”

These few words could be the most undervalued words Jesus spoke, and the most misunderstood.

“Stumbling Block to the Weak”

Paul said, “stumbling block.” He chose his words very wisely, as always. He didn’t say we’re doomed by simple behaviors. He meant that sometimes the simplest of acts, even as innocuous as eating, can trip you into places that you didn’t expect you’d go. He was talking about being “mindful”. Western religions don’t overtly speak in terms of mindfulness. That’s a very eastern understanding of spiritual development.
