Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 

The Dangers of Theology

I was immediately attracted to theology because I’m a born egg-head. For me the danger of my attraction to theology is in the story of Nadab and Abihu. I’ve known from the moment I first started reading the New Testament that – for me – it’s easier to accept the idea of eternal salvation withContinue reading “The Dangers of Theology”

Bleh.

Ever have a day when you’re feeling under the weather? Of course. We all do. I’m not talking about major life threatening, serious, or dangerous medical conditions. That’s a different story. I’m talking about the annoying but self-limiting little backaches, headaches, stomachaches, coughs, allergies, pulled muscles, poison ivy, etc., that virtually all of us getContinue reading “Bleh.”

The Obstinate Lighthouse

Jesus wasn’t the only one who spoke in parables. The story of the Obstinate Lighthouse is an enduring parable of our own times. None of this is literally true. (US Navy, 1997). But it is still a powerful parable. “ACTUAL transcript of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland inContinue reading “The Obstinate Lighthouse”

Conference

I’m really looking forward to attending this virtual conference later this week. CBE International – the largest of the organizations hosting the conference – says this about itself: “CBE International (CBE) is a nonprofit organization of Christian men and women who believe that the Bible, properly interpreted, teaches the fundamental equality of men and womenContinue reading “Conference”

Leviticus says: 23 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe aContinue reading “Rosh Hashanah”

Daniel

My Bible study-buddy and I are currently working our way through the Book of Daniel. I’m also taking an on-line class on the Book of Revelation. It didn’t take long to notice some parallels between them. It almost seems like Daniel is the Old Testament version & Revelation is the New Testament version of theContinue reading “Daniel”

Morning Prayer

“God, help me to see people with Your eyes. As I go about my day, help me to view the world around me through the lens of eternity. May my actions today be rooted in Your plans for a new heaven and new earth.” Amen.

Studying

The class I’m taking on Revelation is quite a study. This week’s lecture was about five different ways that the Book of Revelation has been understood by various theologians throughout history, with examples of each: two “Preterist” ways of reading it, and Historicist, Idealist, and Futurist My brain already hurt by that point. Fortunately theContinue reading “Studying”
