Will God Bless America One More Time?

 “A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.”— Proverbs 18:2. Too bad the USA has this separation of church and state when it comes to political discussions.  This separation, as pertains to Proverbs 18:2, has turned us into fools. Since we now only express our opinions and eschew understanding of others, we have fertilized the extreme right and the extreme left.  The goal of the extreme right has always been to eviscerate the left.   The goal of the extreme…See More

HOW I STOPPED PRAYING

It was only in 1998, when I started studying the Bible, that I realized God had found me in 1968.A fellow college student told me there was room for only 144,000 people in Heaven. He then asked if I had accepted Christ as my savior.At age 20, without ever having studied the Bible, I replied with a question. “So, with all the lives that have been lived, over the past thousands of years, do you think that there is still room for you?”The student hung his head and walked away. I did the 1968…See More

WHY SHOULD GOD BLESS AMERICA?

God bless America.  That is the poorest excuse for a prayer I’ve ever heard.Americans bark out that demand hundreds of times every minute of every day.  That phrase has no humility.  That phrase has no confession of need.  That phrase offers no supplication.Issuing this command to God is blasphemous.A proper prayer for God’s blessing would be, at a minimum, “God, please bless America.”A more appropriate prayer would be, “God, we have pushed you to the sidelines.  You Remain there Waiting for us…See More

Thoughts to Enhance Your Resurrection Celebration Day

Quotes to Enrich Your Easter were posted by Craig Lounsbrough, M. Div., LPC at www.craiglpc.com/quotes-enrich-easter/. The quotes were shared with me by Phil Miglioratti. I would like to share the points The Lord Showed me from these quotes and, where relevant, to what He specifically Led me.

Where is it?

I had been in and out of prayer this morning.  Then I was Given this to think about.Humans are made up of the physical and the spiritual.  The physical part we can readily see.  The spiritual we can only see manifestations thereof.So where, exactly, is the spiritual located inside the human body?  The heart?  The brain?  I couldn’t figure it out.My best guess is that the spiritual in a human body is where the “brain bone” is connected to the “heart bone.”See More

My Primary #ReimaginePRAYER Focus
In my Closet
This Scripture Drives My #Reimagine Journey
Romans 14

Ezekiel 2:1-3:11
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.
