Micah 6:8

Mic 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? When I taught law I took great pains to make the point that as great as our legal system is, you can't count on it to "do justly" or dispense justice, the best you can hope for is to be treated fairly and unfortunately that doesn't happen often enough. Unlike Sharia law it does have room for Mercy and we can probably thank Micah for…See More

Idealism vs. Love

Idealism is not the same as love.  Idealism flows from our minds while love flows from our hearts.  I can ramble on about my perception of the difference between the two and many would disagree or simply fall asleep from boredom.  Such a discourse would do nothing but put good people on the defensive in protecting the role of Idealism in our lives which is not my goal.  My goal is to help those who have seen or are in the process of seeing the energy of youthful idealism seemingly soaked up by…See More

The Presence of God

Posted on 11th mo. 17, 2017 at 1:05pm 2 Comments

There is a difference between prayer and being in God’s presence.  While the fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, healing takes place in his presence.  Many of the people healed by Jesus had prayed for healing before they came into His presence where healing took place.  There are exceptions to every thing but when it comes to healing, being in His presence is the best place to start.

There are many ways to come into God’s presence.  Taking time out to sit quietly with the…

A World without Sin, a/k/a A World without personal responsibility

Posted on 10th mo. 13, 2017 at 10:15am 22 Comments

It’s a World without Sin, everyone is ok

No need for Grace, from what people say

There’s no Hell to go to, no need to repent

it’s a World without Sin, a world without lent.

It’s a World without sin, the devil’s retired

there’s no one to tempt us, his imps have been fired

There’s no one way to God, Oprah has said

In John 14:6 Jesus was simply misread

It’s a World without Sin, we’re all children of God

we love one another, though sometimes its…

Ephesians 4 or The Five Fold Ministry

Posted on 9th mo. 15, 2017 at 3:30pm 15 Comments

Raised Catholic (Elementary and High School and Catholic Fraternity in college and post grad degree at a Catholic college) I recognize the weakness of the hierarchal structure of the Catholic Church.  However, I also recognize the wisdom of those in power.  They are very good at discerning the gifts of their priests and assigning them titles and roles that make the best use of those gifts.  Even when they disenfranchise an entire sex from participation in management, they do a very good job…

Hello James, I just want to let you know that your thoughts about my" rantings" and my lack of "integrity" came to my email but did not post on the website. I appreciate your thoughts on my response to Micah's post.

Hi James, Early this morning received email with a statement from statement from you reading:

"I think you have to define Presence as you understand it before others can evaluate it."

However, I do not see it on the post itself. I just wanted to let you know I am willing to respond to your statement.
