From Temptation to Sin 2 (Genesis 3:6-8)
Verse six is the textbook description of temptation. It shows the three avenues temptation takes to infiltrate and destroy lives. Through the desires flesh or appetites, the appeal of the eyes or esthetic pleasure, and the pride humanity feels for itself....

Faith: The Vine and the Branches 3 (John 15:1-8)
Our Power in Christ (abiding in Him) vv4-7 Jesus tells us that the source of our power, the way to reproduction, is in our abiding in Him. We need the relationship with Christ, not simply the understanding that He died for us. And that relationship exists...

"Stranger Things" 2016
What does it say that for 2016—the year that saw the return of my favorite TV show of all time—my likely favorite show of the year will not be the X Files? “Stranger Things” is an amazingly entertaining yarn in the style of the classic 1980s movies that in...

Amsterdam Thoughts
The first thing I noticed about Amsterdam was the filth. I don’t mean the legal drugs or the prostitution. I mean the trash. The similarities between German and Dutch had me thinking that the cultures would be similar as well. And, they may be. I don’t...

Today's Lone Rangers
Reflections on “The Equalizer” and “A Walk among the Tombstones” (2014) Having access to another country’s Netflix stream last week, I managed to see a couple of movies that seemed interesting at the time they came out, but not enough for me to seek them ou...

Marriage (Genesis 2:24,25)
Three things jump out of these verses: One: “leave his father and his mother…” We see here at the creation of humanity, that the family is also established. Man and woman, father and mother, are needed to accomplish God’s command. The one we saw back in t...

"The Big Short" (2015)
Much like “Moneyball,” “The Big Short” takes a book that is not a traditional movie-style story, and presents it in a creative, compelling fashion. Plenty of fourth-wall-breakage, celebrity cameos explaining financial concepts, and fictional characters tak...

From Temptation to Sin 1 (Genesis 3:1-5)
In chapter three we move to the choice of man to supplant God. Sin enters creation and God’s plan for man, found in the garden is rejected. Man is banished and God sets a salvation plan in motion to recover (achieve?) His original plan. “Serpent” is the f...

Faith: The Vine and the Branches 2 (John 15:1-8)
Our Purpose in Christ (to bear fruit) vv2-6 Jesus carries this illustration further. He has chosen a plant to illustrate our relationship with Him. Plants, like all living things, have a purpose. They exist—in part, a very important part—to reproduce. T...
