It’s sure been a while!
So as many, if not all, of you know, yesterday the world was completely turned upside down by a Supreme Court decision legalizing the marriage rights of homosexuals. I've seen article after blog post after interview spanning the entire spectrum of stances on the issue, and I've got something to say.
I was asked by someone to share my thoughts on Grace, Faith, and Salvation, so I thought I would write a blog about it. Thank you to all those who read my blog and support us here at Grace Wins with your prayers and kind words.
Let's get started..
I'd like to take a moment to be real with you for just a moment. I'm gonna say some things in this letter that will most likely hurt your feelings. My intent is not to hurt you, but to write to you as one adult to another.
"He beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me, a sinner'" Luke 18:13
Broken. A good place to be.
That is the latest post from John Piper. Is it in any way accurate for a believer? Is it how we as believers should live our days? Not a snowballs chance in hell! How do I know? Well, I'll tell you.
"but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,"
1 Peter 3:15
So the last blog I wrote was, let's just say not widely well received. But the Spirit keeps speaking to me about all this “sin” business. What is it? WHAT IS IT?
What is sin? We have always been told that sin is an action that offends God. But is it really?
When I look at you I see beauty.
The Other Guy
I've been thinking lately about how much responsibility Christians in general pass around. Most of what happens in our lives that's bad, or that we do wrong we attribute to the devil. And of course the inverse is true, that everything good that happens in our lives or the good that we do is attributed to God. But is this true? Is this a correct way of thinking?
“You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
I am married to the most beautiful woman on the face of this planet, Ashley, and have had the privilege of having a daughter, Haniah. I love them with all that I am!
