I’ve been hit between the eyes a few times in my life and every one has hurt. Now, I’m not talking literally, but in a spiritual sense when I say that there are times when a truth just bangs into your forehead with such power that you can’t excuse it or ignore it. This happened […]

I’ve been reading the Nonviolent Atonement by Denny Weaver and I have to admit it is an eye opener. In today’s post I’m not going to go into the assertions and conclusions that Professor Weaver makes, but I assure you I will be writing on his work in a number of upcoming posts. What I […]

“Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, to those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ; may mercy, peace, and love be multiplied for you.” Jude 1-2 This short 25 Verse book is often overlooked in our Bible studies but it has an amazing litany of […]
