How The Pagans Stole Christmas!

 Calculating Christmas by William J. Tighe[i] Many Christians think that Christians celebrate Christ’s birth on December 25th because the church fathers appropriated the date of a pagan festival.

What is the Root of Bitterness? (aka: the opposite of love)

Cause & Effect. Choices & Consequences.   Do we teach our children these simple cosmic rules, then fail to model them ourselves?   I had a revelation years ago,while breaking crackers from a church stage (ie., presenting Jesus in the Passover), where God showed me that Matthew 6:15 (Cause) and 1 Corinthians 11:30 (Effect) are […]

Update: please reconcile Jesus words from John 15: I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in […]

Why do Messianics Write G-D, instead of God?

The Messianic Movement and writing the word, G-D. Do we not realize that the only time our unbelieving Jewish religious brethren write the title in this form, G-D, it is done on physical objects like paper? There is no such mandate by them for electronic forms like on social media. So, feel free to write […]

“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing…” But, Hearing What?

How often have you heard this popular Scripture verse, Roman’s 10:17 taught in such a way that you come away with an understanding of it that goes something like this? “Faith comes by hearing and hearing…so read your Bibles silently in your prayer room, over coffee and before bed silently while your spouse is sleeping […]

Jewish People Have No Real Objection to the Trinity?

“One of the conclusions that I came to, to my shock, when I finished this book [The Bodies of God and The World of Ancient Israel], is that we Jews have no theological objection to the Trinity.
