Morality Kills

Morality has sent, is sending and will send people to Hell. That is why the words of Williams Tyndale are so fitting when he cries out to God, Deliver us from morality. Morality is not Christianity. Morality is the conformity to rules of right conduct or behavior. It is the vain effort of seeking to be good and righteous without Jesus. This is why the overchurched, unchurc...

Jesus' Present Kingly Reign

Do you ever have those days where you feel like God is not present? You may feel that He is absent, whether due to circumstances or maybe a certain attitude you have one day. These times are real.

Trading A Charade for Something Real

God grants to us Kingdom practices or forms, so that we would seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. It is not something that comes natural to you and I. Remember we are born into this world as those who are not righteous and who do not seek God (Romans 3.10, 11b). In fact, our sinful flesh wages war against such a desire or pursuit of seeking first the Kingd...

Marriage: Simply Try

Matthew 25.14-30. I ask that you read this section of Scripture. Jesus is using a parable here to speak of the kingdom of heaven and what it is like here on earth. Jesus says that those who are part of the kingdom of God will be given a mission from God.

For Theirs is The Kingdom of Heaven

Jesus came saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand (Matthew 4.17). This is great news, but for who? Who does the kingdom of heaven belong to? In Jesus' sermon in the hill country He answers that when He says, Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5.3). The kingdom of heaven belongs to the poor in spirit. What does this mean? Jesus b...
