Simple Truth

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 Love

Guys in jail ask me how to find a good church when they get out.

I tell them that if they visit on Sunday and no one ever invites them home to share friendship and a meal after a couple of weeks, move on …

It’s just a meeting, not a church.

Simple Faith

“Christian” existentialists get all wrong:

We don’t believe because we perceive …

But perceive because we believe.

The former is all about us …

As we start with ourselves only to remain trapped in ourselves.

The latter is all about Him …

Who gives faith to believe to those who repent of ourselves so we can become more than ourselves.

Simple Virtue

Seldom will evil fess up to its own culpability …

Which is why it is unrealistic to expect closure from an evildoer on an injustice they caused.

Instead, find closure by fully expressing to the Lord the hurts and wrongs your heart still carries …

Then forgive by releasing your need for justice to Him.

Not to excuse the evil or those who did it …

But to acknowledge the wrong, find freedom and move on.
