The Search for Utopia… Cleansing History

There is a strange and unrealistic movement in the radical left today to somehow fix the country by cleansing its history of all its imperfect past. This attempt to erase history, rather than to learn from it, is more than idealism. It is thought control. In the novel 1984 by George Orwell, the powers that be were constantly changing and rewriting history to fit with their present political objectives. “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

Paul’s Weakness

Pardoned or Paroled? Escaping a Prison of Guilt to Find Freedom in Christ

Paul’s weakness was his learning and education, which he thought was his strength. The thorn in his side was not sickness but constant attempts to undermine his ministry by religious legalists/false apostles who came as messengers of Satan to churches he founded. The Thorn not being removed caused him to write many of the letters we have to day in response to these attacks upon grace and his ministry.

Changing Hearts Saving Lives Building Families | Central Texas LifeCare

Changing Hearts Saving Lives Building Families | Central Texas LifeCare: Priscillas Story “If you think you have blown God’s plan for your life, Rest assured, because you are not that powerful.” It was night. I remember lying in bed thinking and then realizing I had missed my period. I took one of the pregnancy tests I had in my drawer. The test was positive…I was pregnant. I was happy because I knew this is what I wanted. I then soon experienced an overwhelming feeling of being scared. I was scared because I already had a child from a prior relationship. Plus what was my family going to think? I was living with them at the time. There was no extra room and they were already helping me out as it is. I was nervous on how Joseph was going to react. Almost immediately, I sent him a picture of the positive test result…..He texted back, asking what it meant. I told him that we were going to have a baby. He then texted saying he was scared and if he could call instead. We both thought we could not become pregnant simply because I considered myself to be underweight. I … Read more

Being a Friend to God

Friendship is a covenant term

 Being a Friend to God

Gary has been preaching on Friendship.    The word friend in the OT and NT is a word that means a covenant relationship.

Jas 2:23  Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God.
Isaiah 41:8 But you, Israel, my servant,
Jacob, whom I have chosen,
the offspring of Abraham, my friend; 

What is a covenant relationship?    

Marriage is a good example:  you join bank accounts. Your debts become both your debts, your assets also theirs. You live together, you protect each other, and hopefully you would die for each other. 

Covenant relationships mean that you share whatever you have if the other person has need of it. If you are good in publicity, but they are good in finance, your promote their business while they finance yours. You would never let your covenant partner starve while you have food. You would die before you let anyone harm them.
