Good morning my fellow revolutionaries. I sit here sipping away at my stronger-than-normal Peruvian blend of coffee in my Tim Horton's cup, and as I think of some quick thoughts to jot down, what came to mind was the phrase 'types and shadows'. In the letter to the Colossians Paul noted that many of the institutions and commands revealed under the Law of Moses were, “These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ. (Colossians 2:17, ESV).  The same idea is [Continue reading...]
I consider myself a liberal. A bleeding-heart liberal. Except... I probably mean that in a different way than you thought when you clicked on this post. I'm not talking about politics. But as a side note, did you know not many decades ago, the term "bleeding heart" liberal used to be a good thing, and not an insult? The definition of “bleeding heart” meaning a person who is considered excessively sympathetic toward those who claim to be underprivileged or exploited. Why this is used as [Continue reading...]
Greetings my fellow peeps on the interwebs. I apologize for the lack of consistent updates this week to date.  I try to post several times a week, and even daily when possible, which is why I aim for small posts, very often, rather than long posts sporadically.  However, I've been busier than normal, and as a result of working on my time management skills, blogging fell to the wayside a bit.   This has not stopped me from reading lots of blogs and eBooks lately, as you may have noticed by my [Continue reading...]
I just finished having a Skype conversation with my friend Mark Harrell Jr. We don't talk often but when we do, boy is it ever good! It takes a few hours to catch up and at one point we stumbled on to something interesting that I thought I'd jot down real quick. I've said a few times and places on my blog and podcast that your worldview definitely shapes your outlook of life. I'm not even specifically talking about whether you believe in a pre-tribulation rapture or post-trib. But if you believe [Continue reading...]
Recently I was pondering some public relations disasters I've been hearing about and observing sometimes from a distance, such as with marketing, or in the Church.   As many people do, they had failed to take into account how information on the internet going viral is the same as a lit match, a bucket of gasoline resulting in a forest fire.  You can't put a cat back inside the bag once it's out.  Or to borrow another innuendo, you can't put the beans back in the can once they've been spilled.

I'm not personally a fan of Glenn Beck (nor am I an enemy!) so I had not come across this post on The Blaze recently until someone shared it with me. I had mixed feelings about this news because I didn't really find it to be news. Brownsville Assembly of God has been struggling with debt for years, ever since the revival during the late 1990s. J. Lee Grady posted something on it in 2006 when then-pastor Randy Feldschau resigned from pastoring the church, and the Brownsville Revival School of [Continue reading...]
