This is an excellent article. I know a thing or two about closed doors. My desire as a “young’un” was to be a youth pastor, father, husband, etc., but God (so far) has closed each of those doors. There have been other doors that have been close as well. Some on ministry … More God Closing Doors Is Actually A Good Thing
I was preparing to continue my study on Purity on Biblegateway.com when I was waylaid by their verse of the day. It was Isaiah 1: 16-17, which says: Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take … More ‘Murica
It would be easy to spend at least the next month or more on the Old Testament perspective of Purity, but I’m going to finish this perspective off with a look at what David and Solomon write about purity in Psalms and Proverbs. As I said,I could take a month or more to talk about … More Purity: An OT perspective Part 3
It’s been two weeks since I last posted, man, I’ve been slacking. Not really though, life has all of a sudden gotten really busy for me. I’ve gone from having too much time on my hands to practically having no time. I’ve started my EMT-Basic class finally, and that meets on Monday and … More PURITY: An OT Perspective pt 2, and some personal stuff

This might seem pretty obvious to us looking backward over 2000 years, but at the time, it was a pretty big deal. You have to … More Conversations with Peter: Misunderstanding, Conflict, and Resolution
Our last conversation with Peter, in Acts 9, has him in the town of Joppa discipling new converts. Due to the persecution by the Jewish authorities, the relatively small sect of Jerusalem based Christ followers dispersed to the regions around Judea, and spread the gospel to other Jews. Because of this, the Apostles went … More Conversations with Peter: A New Vision and Focus
So, has the title confused you yet? Maybe Intrigued you a little? Ahh, I didn’t think so. It’s my lame attempt at creative title making I guess. We’re going to continue to look at the next event in Peter’s conversation with us. We’re skipping over another huge moment in the Genesis of … More Conversations With Peter: Big “Things” happen before even Bigger Things Happen
I was preparing to post this week but got distracted, a bit of undiagnosed ADD probably, lol. Seriously though, I was going to post something about my old youth group being at camp this week and blah,blah, blah, blah, but then at my Life Group last night we talked about letting closed doors alone … More Conversations With Peter: The Dynamic Duo and a Sorcerer?
