... the issues of this age are reflections of the very ones Jesus faced with Judaism. We are witnesses in our time to a core of zealous, false evangelical mysticism that serves as the foundation for a bloated cult of ignorance and denial.

Financial Scavengers; Emptied Churches.

And now, in our lifetime! The Lord has once again flushed scavengers from the branches of the mustard tree. Many churches will be silent, empty this Easter Sunday. A kind of forced reverence has descended upon places of worship that is unprecedented.

Intentional Discipleship

...describing how discipleship works. This is a very, very messy business. Not sterile, but hands on. People come. They go. They come back. This is a battle and the sword of the Word cuts deeply. Warriors for God will have blood on their hands but survive to dance in the streets like David did.

“But what I have, I give you…”

It's great to be healthy, wealthy and wise. God has blessed you. But have no pity on the sick, poor and stupid - who are beneath contempt. 'They' have done something to bring God's disfavor and condemnation. You are a CHINO. Christian in Name Only.

“I have to do something about my situation” is a work of this flesh, anchored in a willful sense of personal power. But I surrendered to Jesus. I have no power of my own. It’s pride sneaking in. And that comes before a fall. Humbly, I serve … or I can’t serve at all.
