If we believe, why do we doubt?

At some point all believers struggle with doubts in their faith.  If you are honest enough to recognize this you will find yourself in good company.  John the Baptist, the cousin and forerunner of Jesus struggled with doubts.  He had famously proclaimed the Jesus was the Messiah but then later became a little confused and asked Jesus "are you the One who was to come or should we expect someone else."  That is a powerful question if you think about it.  For some it is so very troubling to have someone of John's stature to have such deep and serious doubts.  We can be critical or identify ourselves with John.  One of Jesus Continue reading

Don’t get me wrong, rabbits can be a lot of fun…. to watch on t.v., to hunt, to eat, to have as a pet or even pretend they hide eggs on Easter morning.  I get it, I do it.  It is fun coloring eggs and hiding them (though the plastic ones are better because you can stuff them with Continue reading

The Freedom Thief

The statement “freedom is not free” resonates with those who understand the sacrifices our military has made for us to enjoy enduring freedom.  In our modern society, the freedom that we enjoy is often under attack.  Thankfully there are men and women that continue to stand up and pay the price of freedom.  In a similar fashion, Jesus paid the price of our freedom.  Christ paid our debt and bondage of sin through His death on the Continue reading
