Category: Christianity (page 1 of 4)

I am a Christian and I like writing about Christian things every now and then. My writing about Christianity is not hellfire and brimstone, nor do I try to impose my beliefs on others.

The Smart-Ass Genie

I had just arrived for church and I sat down next to one of my “married” and “wiser” lady friends.

Somehow the subject turned to what I wanted to be when I grow up.

“Well, one thing’s for sure…” I quipped referencing her and her husband, “I definitely don’t want to be older like y’all”

Not missing a beat, she pointed at my nose and said, “Poof!.... Continue Reading...

You Were Gay? No Christian Funeral For You.

There are a few things I despise about my religion that is Christianity. Wait, let me rephrase. There are a few things about people who call themselves Christians that I despise. One particular thing I don’t like is Christians who automatically are repulsed when they find out someone is a homosexual.

In Arlington, Texas, a megachurch called HighPoint was to conduct a funeral for a fallen veteran named Cecil Howard Sinclair..... Continue Reading...

Can You Delay the Inevitable?

I usually end all of my e-mails with a quote: you can only delay the inevitable. My quotation is simply saying that the inevitable will occur, but one can postpone it.

One of my friends has constantly debated me on the issue. He said that if you could delay what was inevitable, then the inevitability mentioned wasn’t really inevitable.

Definition of Inevitable

According to dictionary.com, the inevitable is something that cannot be avoided, evaded, or escaped..... Continue Reading...

The Choice for R-Rated Movies

When I lived in Phoenix, Arizona, I heard about that the Star Wars Episode II was going to be showing on the local IMAX. I was very excited because I was (and still am) a HUGE Star Wars fan. Our church planned to go see the movie as a group. I was very new to the church and only knew a couple of members, so this outing was a chance for me to meet the other members of the church.....

Is it True That no Good Deed Goes Unpunished?

Lately I have been hearing the same quote over and over again: “No good deed goes unpunished.”

At work, this quote seems to be the norm. People warn me against volunteering because you’ll be “re-volunteered” in the future. Don’t do a good job on a project, because you’ll get more work. Don’t help people, because they’ll just want more help in the future..... Continue Reading...

Christianity and Fitness – Meditation

Please read the previous article in the Christianity and Fitness series: Intimidation.

As with most things in life, it is better to take things slowly. If you rush through things, you might miss a detail, get in an accident, or not reach the goal you are striving for.

With both Christianity and fitness, it is important to take your time so that meaning isn’t lost and your time isn’t wasted..... Continue Reading...

I'm Glad I Can Talk to God

Sometimes it is tough to keep an Eternal perspective when life has you pinned down and you feel trapped on this planet. I get frustrated that people on this planet have the nerve to tell somebody else, “You’re not good enough for me to talk to you.”

I’m thankful that God — the creator of all things — is willing to take the time and listen to my cries..... Continue Reading...

A Salvation Analogy – Debt and Gift Cards

My friend cetroyer and I were having a discussion about salvation. I told him that one of my friends had asked me to describe why salvation was such a big deal. My best analogy was about gift cards. However, cetroyer pointed out that gift cards are a reward — something above and beyond. Cetroyer then proceeded to provide what I thought was a better analogy..... Continue Reading...

Public Prayer For Damon and Jill

It may be odd to see a public prayer on a blog. As odd as it may seem, I think the prayer is necessary so that I can get my thoughts out, and so that others can possibly join me. Keep in mind when praying that I am not talking to you; I am talking to God. I do have some links and quotes in my prayer so you can join in on the context..... Continue Reading...

Religion in Public Schools

Do you think that there should be religion in public schools?

My friend sent me an interesting link about the guidance regarding prayer in public schools. I just wanted to share some interesting facts (with my own opinions of course) regarding religion in schools that I found in the guidance..... Continue Reading...
