Exercising Faith, Revisited Again


So, it is time to write about it again. I actually read my previous Faith posts — some of which may be difficult to discern, because they don’t come right out and say, “this is about Faith!” Well, now, this

Confessions of An Elitist


Two disclaimers: I am not at all party inclined, so if any examples seem unbalanced to you, perhaps the unbalance is with you? No, really, I tried to take examples of both political parties’ representatives follies for the most egregious

The Devil Made Me Do It Again!


Just a little reminder that we must yield to the enticings of the Holy Spirit and become submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love and so forth. Also remember that Paul tells Galatians that the fruits of the Spirit are love, peace, joy, patience, kindness and so forth. All kinds of good things. Even when we feel hurt or have difficult matters to discuss, we will always be more successful with a patient and loving approach, trying to remember to foster love for all of our brothers and sisters. That is what the Lord expects of us, but that will be a lifetime project for any one of us.

Hobosexuality


Let me say first off that I have not participated in any political campaign for or against same-sex marriage in any legislation. Likely that is because it hasn’t really come up as an issue where I vote.

I define “hobosexuality” as wandering from partner to partner. Something that is almost the norm to a very large group of the population.

I also would like to plead for sane reasoning from all sides (remember the Lord inviting Job to “reason with” him?). By shouting past each other we can not come to any constructive results, but only create bad blood.

About Trying To Serve God And Mammon Or the Gospel of Wealth


Part religious pondering, part political polemic, this is an indictment of the Gospel of Wealth. Not party politics, though! But if you are interested, I take a bit crusty look at the culture that insinuates that if you’re poor or sick, it’s because you’ve earned it (see Mosiah 4:16-23).

Falling Forward

Day by day, step by step, I become a little more unbroken. And though sometimes I fall…I’m forever falling forward.
