The Bible on Romance

The Bible on Romance How Should a Woman Pursue a Man? Well, unless the woman is a feminist, she should never pursue him. This is according to American cultural norms and even Christian churches. The man must always, without a doubt and at all times pursue the woman. It’s the woman’s job to wait for…

Undervalued

I just finished watching Moneyball. Great movie! I always undervalued it though. When it came out, I gave it a hard pass. I avoided it even. It’s about Baseball and I hate sports movies. This one was different because it told the story of undervalued players.  Spoilers if you plan to watch the movie. The protagonist…

Enneagram, an Addendum

In a previous post I stated that Enneagrams and Myers Briggs tests and the like were neutral. That was before watching this very convicting video. Doreen Virtue was once a fortune teller, deeply rooted in New Age and cultic practices. Now she’s a reformed believer in Christ. She covers various topics of her former life…

There’s an App for That

When I was neck deep in hyper-grace theology, attending a house group every other Friday, there were some crazy thoughts running through my noggin. The providence of the Lord had me grounded in the theology of a baptist church at least. One bright Sunday morning on the way to church, I was thinking those word-of-faith-seeker-friendly…

Psalms 22

In the midst of my depression I flirted with the idea that God did not know the future… He must not, for how could all this pain be allowed in my life?  It’s the age-old question many atheists ask. If God is so loving then why [fill in the blanks]. For me, that blank was…

Hyper-Grace and Apathy

There is a sickness of apathy in the church.  It is caused by an extreme resting on Jesus’ work, so much so, that you do not work yourself. This would be at the kernel of the hyper-grace movement. “Jesus is an over-payment.” They say, meaning, He died not only for your sins, but also for…

Is the Rapture Found in Matthew 24?

Chapter 24 of Matthew is the same conversation Jesus had with His disciples in Luke 17. Matthew’s account gives even more detail, for he was there as one of those disciples. This gives it a personal understanding of what Jesus taught concerning the end times. In Luke 17 there was a focus on the kingdom…

Is the Rapture in the Bible?

No. Where did it come from? … “Prophecy.” Are there verses that support this “prophecy”? Yes and no… there are single verses, maybe 1 or 2 or even 3 in a row that seem to support this “prophecy”.  Let’s look at them in context and see what the bible actually means. Before we begin. I…

Myers Briggs, Enneagram, and the Bible

I’m an ISFP in the Myers Brigg test… mostly so. I’m a 2 on Enneagram. Which means I’m a helper… mostly. Personality tests seem really fun. At times they can bring great joy. I love to learn what I’m all about! It isn’t perfect, it’s a bit wonky but it can be harmless musings. It…

The Ability to Distinguish Between Spirits

This is also known as the gift of discerning of spirits. What moves you?  Not the action itself. I’m not talking about works. I’m talking about what lies beneath your works. What is inside of your spirit? Answering this means wading through all of your baggage, your past regrets, your sins, your tendencies, your nature,…
