Power and Corruption

Power and Corruption

I read this verse from the Bible and even though it was written thousands of years ago one place from today immediately came to mind.

Read it and see if you think the same as I do.

Isaiah Chapter 1 Verses 21 through 23: Continue reading

An Appalling And Horrible Thing

An Appalling And Horrible Thing

Here are some quick thoughts on a Bible verse that caught my attention.

The verse is Jeremiah 5:30-31:

An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely and the priest rule at their direction.  My people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes?

When I read those two verses something inside my head told me to remember them.

When I read it my thoughts do not go to the ancient temples and courts of Israel.  My thoughts go to the modern temples and courts of Washington DC.

I thought how once again I have come across ancient Biblical prophesies that are applicable today. Continue reading

Good And Evil – Deal With It

Good And Evil – Deal With It

I thought I would share one of the most important lessons I have learned from the Bible.

It came to me as one of those “aha” moments.

I have written about the prophets in the Bible and how their words of prophesy still apply today.  Continue reading

Household Gods

Household Gods

Zechariah 10:2

For the household gods utter nonsense,
and the diviners see lies;
they tell false dreams
and give empty consolation.
Therefore the people wander like sheep;
they are afflicted for lack of a shepherd.

I wrote this one down because boy oh boy is it true today. Continue reading

The LOVE Of Money

The LOVE Of Money

1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

I think this verse is one of the most misquoted verses of the Bible.

I know as a child and a teenager I often misquoted this verse and I remember my grandmother correcting me.

Most people paraphrase this verse especially when trying to make a compelling case against corporations, profits and capitalism.

They will leave out the one key word.  They will say “Money is the root of all evil”.  But if you read above, you will notice they omitted “love”. Continue reading

She Said This! Well He Said That!

She Said This! Well He Said That!

I thought I would write about the corruption of politics in this country and I am sure it’s the same everywhere.

I’ll try not tip my hand as to which side I lean towards in this year’s presidential election cycle.  And I know like most of you, I have had just about enough of the whole mess.

Watching the point counter point, the horrible mudslinging ads, and the ego filled self-indulgence has made me tired of the whole process.

It has become infantile and through social media a lot of responsible citizens have joined the candidates in the political cesspool.

One side is caught in a lie.  The other side points out that lie. Continue reading
