It’s gotta be said: 

If you got caught up in all the “prophetic words” about Trump being re-elected from the Elijah List for-profit non-prophets and other self-appointed, unaccountable and attention grabbing “prophetic” crazies … 

Or you got caught up in the bizarre world of Q-anon delusions … 

You need to humbly examine yourself, return to the Sovereign God of Scripture, embrace the simple – yet comprehensive – power and authority of His Word, and commit to healthy Christian community where you can begin to find balance in your life. 

When you do, there will be no need or desire to pursue counterfeit realities or distracting, drama laden “solutions”. 

Yes, there are real issues, and yes there are those who are authentically prophetic … 

But God is not a freak show and what you gave yourselves over to was not of Him. 

True disciples, who put their trust wholly in Him and His Word and are committed to healthy Christian community, will learn to discern the difference. 

Those who don’t, won’t. 

Repent, and get about the hard work of rebuilding the foundations in your own life and in our nation … 

Before it’s too late.

Simple Virtue

These days, if you oppose the Leftist political views held by many (but certainly not all) black organizations, it is called racism – even if you oppose those views because you want the best for the black community.

Thus, according to how oppressive “progressives” have redefined the word, you are “racist” based on legitimate political differences even if you care deeply about what’s happening in the black community.

This twisting of language by the Left is insidious, and is used by the Left to stifle honest debate over their political policies that are actually doing great harm to the black community.

Don’t let the rhetoric of hate from the Left silence you:

Renounce their oppressive policies that are destroying Black lives, Black families and Black communities;

Proclaim with confidence those Godly principles – like worth, dignity and responsibility, in the context of faith, family and community – which offer true hope for all as we seek to heal our broken nation; and

Stand for virtue.

Only then will the true racists be unmasked.

Some “Christians” have embraced identity politics, leading them to support candidates who promote abortion, gender confusion, marriage malaise and religious intolerance.

They’ve become reprobates, having traded the God of Scripture …

For the lies of Satan.

Simple Discipleship — September 13, 2018

Simple Discipleship

The main difference between popular existential ideologies and Biblical Christianity comes down to perspective:

What’s the ultimate framework for truth, reality and morality?

Our sensibilities …

Or God’s sovereignty?

Misplaced Loyalties:

Getting more upset about abuse, lies and cover-up being exposed in your beloved “church” and its leaders …

Than about the impact of that abuse on the victims.

God will not hold you blameless.

Simple Church — August 26, 2018

Simple Church

Don’t be bashful:

We need to publicly ask those who publicly tell everyone how to do or be the church (whether organic, missional, traditional or whatever) …

If they themselves are part of one – in their own lives and hometowns – like they keep promoting to others.

You may be shocked at how often they aren’t.

But hey, that shouldn’t stop them from peddling their ear-tickling ideas, books, blogs and conferences to unsuspecting audiences.

Right?

🤔

Unless you’re willing to fail …

You will never succeed.

However, never let risk exceed …

Your ability to survive possible failure.

By learning to successfully fail …

You can turn obstacles into opportunities.

Simple Faith

If we’re not about redemption, then what hope does anyone have?

This is my passion.

This is my cause.

But it ain’t neat and it ain’t tidy.

It’s raw and sometimes ugly.

Because if Jesus doesn’t work for the worse of us …

Then He works for none of us.
