Sharing Evanlogical Math.

Organized church has long taught that Jesus was fully God and fully man, except He did not sin.  This is not in the Bible.  It was decided by a vote of men in a council.  This concept is not…Continue

Pray We not be Arrogrant in Preaching Inerrancy

The Bible will never lead you astray. That is what inerrancy means.  It doesn't mean the Bible is an exact history. This makes complete Evanlogical sense. So, why is “inerrancy,” at times, preached…Continue

"How about we start with #0. We need to stop COMMANDING God to Bless America. A simple, "Please God, Bless America..." and then continue the praying or singing of this, this... plea as Phil has shared. Maybe our first confession should…"

Organized Religion is the Image of THE CHURCH in America.

People of THE CHURCH are attentive to God’s Direction, His Will and His Word, many, many times falling short in their efforts.  Organized religion is often about looking for stuff from God, asking Him to Change His Will and adjusting His Word to fit its needs.  The sad Truth is organized religion is the image of THE CHURCH in America. It may not have been made clear in other blog posts on this Web site, but the root cause of white supremacy and racism is organized religion.  Until organized…See More

WHY I POST ON PHIL’S BLOGS

I am an unpaid, non-pastoral layperson… and a sinner.  So why do I post on Phil’s blogs? While I make no claim to prophecy, one of my life Bible verses is Ezekiel 2:1-3:11.  But having been an accountant for my entire career, I have a difficult time proceeding until I’ve been held Accountable.This may be best understood by listening to the first part only of an original song.  Then reading the re-imagined words.Listen only from 0:00 to 1:05 then read the words below.…See More

TRADITIONAL COLUMBUS DAY POEM - REIMAGINED

I am an unpaid, non-pastoral layperson… and a sinner.  While I make no claim to prophecy, one of my life Bible verses is Ezekiel 2:1-3:11I recently heard a sermon on waking up ourselves and the church (Rev. 3:1-6).  Coupling that with a sermon I heard the week before regarding tolerating Jezebel’s/Judas’ (a male version of the name) practices as acceptable within the Faith (Rev. 2:18-29), a prayer of confession and repentance is offered.  It may behoove “man’s” organized churches and their…See More

Attempt at honest dialog by an old, non-police officer white guy.

One of the Civil Rights protest slogans is "No Justice No Peace." That slogan has strong implications. When a peaceful Civil Rights protest is followed by rioting, it makes me wonder, “Has implication turned into action?”  The answer to that question affects my view of race in America. There is no firm information as to who is responsible for these riots.  I still, in my heart, believe the riots are not caused by the Civil Rights Movement. But my gut is telling me be on guard in personal…See More

How To Begin a Reimagine Journey [My Tweet-Sized (280 characters) suggestion]
Think outside of the bricks and mortar box. The Universal church has no walls, no congregational separations.

The simple, clear message of Christ is the Giving of, and the receiving of, Grace. Use all He has placed in your trust, including human logic, to share, and not scare, people with this Good News.
WHY? is it important for the Church to #ReimaginePRAYER?
Because prayer is dialog--questions and answers.

Because prayer is for asking. Since he supplies all our needs and even some of our desires that are consistent with His Will, as often as humanly possible, our prayers should be for assignments that advance His Purpose.

Sharing Evanlogicalism 2021.03.29

Humans like to be recognized and rewarded for things they have created.  They had the idea for the book, the story, the new invention, the improvement to an existing object, discovering a procedure, cure or vaccine to treat medical illness, etc.

 

They refer to these creations as “my innovation” or “my book.”  Others refer to them as “produced by” or “written by.” …

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless
Stella.
