To Boycott or Not to Boycott?

Sometimes we have to make hard choices about boycotting. You can get to a point where you wind up boycotting just about everything when you don’t need to do that. Concentrate on those businesses who make their policies public and actually brag about what they do. This in-your- face, triple-dog-dare-ya may be the reason Christians avoid a particular company and it may be the only reason to do so.

Hebrews 4: What is the “Rest” Mentioned?

We’re all tempted to be discouraged and to throw in the towel. We seem to fight ourselves and our desires to continue serving God or doing what we really want to do. I’ve been there. You’ve probably been there too. This is why the NT writers emphasized persevering so much. It’s not that we can lose salvation. It’s that we have to work against our sin nature, which tries desperately to continue to control us. We must persevere in ignoring the dictates of that sin nature. It is not easy continuing to live the Christian life. It is made more difficult because we are constantly fighting against our sin nature’s desire to stop serving God.

Voter Fraud Affecting Elections?

When President Trump became president, one of the things he did was to issue an executive order (EO) that gave the authority over our voting system to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It is now the responsibility of the DHS to ensure that our vote is safe and that the only people actually voting are citizens of the USA. No one else gets to vote, but we see in California a law was passed that gives illegals the right to vote. The federal government needs to come in and not only denounce but do what they can to nullify those laws since they go against the Constitution.

Bible VS Book of Mormon

Something is seriously wrong here. Why would God have spent so much time providing hard evidence throughout history that the claims of the Bible are true, yet where the Book of Mormon is concerned – which also purports to be holy Scripture that is comparable to the Bible – there’s essentially nothing by way of historical, archaeological, or textual proofs of what is contained within the Book of Mormon?

Is It This or That?

The Jews could not grasp what Jesus said. In Matthew 24, He used the word “this” to reference a generation and it seems clear enough (though there is plenty of disagreement), that He ultimately was referring to the generation that would be alive during the coming Tribulation, which would end as He returned. However, there is also a near/far view because things certainly started with the generation living at the time of Jesus, didn’t it?

Micah Explains True Religion in One Short Verse

Micah also states that we should “love kindness.” What does that mean? It means we should endeavor to be kind to all people and by its very nature, it means that we put our own wants and needs on the back burner. You cannot be concerned about how others “feel” if you are concerned primarily with yourself. To be kind means to always think in terms of how the other person feels. What’s happening with them? What are they having to deal with? How can I make their life easier?

Politics, Social Networks and Liars

Notice in all of these cases, God has the final word. Reading through the prophets bares this out. Ezekiel is told to take up a lamentation against Tyre, against Ammon, against Babylon, and against many other nations. Why? Because ultimately, God is in charge of all of these things. Even when He allows Satan to seemingly succeed, God does so for His purposes and glory. This is the way it has always been and will always be unto the end.
