Healing: Do You Want to Be Healed?

Healing. “Do you want to be healed?” asked Jesus of the invalid man who was brought daily to the Pool of Bethesda (John 5). Not everyone wants to be healed, do they? Do you? It is healing we need, isn’t it? Or, is it something else? For much of my Christian experience, the preoccupation of […]

The Day Jesus Threw God Out of Church

One day, Jesus went into the temple and began throwing people out. Or, is this a story of the day Jesus threw God out of Church? Check it out for yourself. In Luke 19:45-46, we read…    “Going into the Temple, he began to throw out everyone who had set up shop, selling everything and […]

How Do You Define Faith?

Define Faith Today I was asked, “How do you define faith?” I’m not sure you can. Isn’t it a little like trying to define God? Whatever you say about God is either wrong or woefully insufficient. Which is why, even when the New Testament writer says, “God is love,” (1 John 4:8) he is both […]

Real Fear…and, the “Other” Kind

Real Fear (and, the Other Kind) There are two kinds of fear…real fear and…well…the other kind. Real fear is familiar to everyone. It’s the body’s natural reaction to a threat. It’s the immediate and natural physical reaction to anything, or anyone, that threatens your life… It’s what you feel when you slam on your brakes, […]
