Just some thoughts, mostly scripture: How will you know them? John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” [...]
Now, with such striking similarities, you might ask: “Why do you say that Social Security is NOT a Ponzi Scheme”?
Considering the history of American voters in the past, when the economy is a large factor, I wonder what the strategy will even be? Can the democrats afford to let Obama run again? If they do, are the smart enough to do so, expecting him to lose, therefore stick the Republican candidate with the task [...]
Why are there different understandings about the bible?
Why is it hard to understand?
Why does the Bible contain things that do not make sense,
or even contradict themselves?
Have you ever heard questions like that, or perhaps ask them yourself, even if not out loud?
We all wonder what will happen to us after we die. When a loved one dies, we long to see him or her again after our turn comes. Will we have a glorious reunion with those we love or is death the end of all consciousness? Jesus taught that life does not end after our [...]
Propaganda, deception, myth, junk science, can you distinguish the truth? Notice the title carefully. It describes the subject. I will be using some examples of things that might fall into the categories above, but please remember that the examples are not the topic, the topic is about being deceived vs. discerning the truth. We are [...]
Today I hope to speak about King David conquering the city of Jerusalem (2 Samuel 5). In order to do this, I want to take some time to place this scripture in context (where in the bible are we?) and explain why this was such a significant event. The crux of the message is that [...]
Today I want to approach the study a little different to before, by examining only a few verses in greater detail, rather than a lot of verses with little detail. The text under examination is Hebrew 12:1-3, and as we dig deeper we will see a an analogy developing between us living out our Christian [...]
Today’s study is all about temptation… where it comes from, why we experience it, helpful things to do to overcome, and what to do if you have succumb to temptation. The study itself is quite simple, what is hard is putting what we learn here into practice. Most of us have faced temptation to do [...]
Faith is very important for many reasons, but let me give you three: 1 – We are saved through faith: Eph 2:8-9 For by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. 2 – Faith pleases God: Heb 11:6 [...]
A Baptist missionary was walking in Africa when he heard the ominous padding of a lion behind him. “Oh Lord,” prayed the missionary, “Grant in Thy goodness that the lion walking behind me is a good Christian lion.” And then, in the silence that followed, the missionary heard the lion praying too: “Oh Lord,” he [...]
Let’s try an experiment. Choose a number between 1 and 48. Don’t over think it, the number should be random, as though you drew it out of a hat. Write it down. Next, choose some letter of the alphabet, either upper case or lower case, or choose a space instead of a letter, but make [...]
It was that time of year, where we had to revamp Worthy Chat. We’ve given Worthy a fresh new look and we hope you like it!
Or is it? Everyone seems to be claiming to have this or that right these days. Lately, I have gotten into a few conversations and debates, having to do with so-called rights. Those who are familiar with my rants on topics political and social have heard me say that rights are not plucked from trees. [...]

Yes, it is another political/social rant. The kind that always earn me comments about being cold hearted, un-Christ like, or other adjectives people like to use when they disagree. Maybe this one will be different, maybe not. What is prompting me to write this one is the fact that a judicial activist (an ideologue wearing [...]
