Well said.
Though we are warned in 2 Timothy 4:3 that many people will reject sound doctrine because they seek out teachers who cater to their selfish desires and itching ears, there are some errors to which the very zealous are especially vulnerable. False teachings that call for extraordinary sacrifices or extreme submission to leaders, that add rules or disciplines to follow that cause a person to feel especially pious, or that expect unusual behavior that is especially humbling/humiliating can deceive believers who would never embrace error that promised such things as pleasantries, happy feelings, popularity with the world, or the indulgence of fleshly desires. For example, the legalistic error against which Paul warned in his letters was propagated by people who obviously thought their zealous error made them better Christians. Zeal is good (Romans 12:11), but it must be guided by proper understanding (Romans 10:2) and prudence (Proverbs 8:12). A speeding train can do much good but if it jumps off of the tracks it is only a useless wreck.

Lots going on my life right now & updated the blog on my Reverbnation site, if you're a member there (or even if you're not) head on over & see what's happening; check out some music while you're there too.

I'll be uploading some new songs hopefully in the next month or so & 'hope to release a new EP or two in that same time frame, we'll see...

Long story short, I may be launching my own Christian Record Label to promote not only local artists but some nationwide.

Multitasking is one thing but I'm finding there's something to that old saying, "if you chase two rabbits you'll not catch either one..."

Some very good thoughts... for those who are entrenched in the institutional church system & believe that's the only definition & expression of the Body of Christ & for those who see things differently (& are getting better results).

There's a discussion on Linkedin right now about youth "leaving" the church & how to compel them to come back; you can actually smell the religiousity in some of the answers.
I saw this one pop up in my Facebook newsfeed fairly recently. Wayne Jacobson, host of The God Journey podcast shared it. Jacobson has long been a major figure in the discussion on organic Christianity. I decided to share a few thoughts.

What are your thoughts? Is the "done" crowd something to be worried about?

The heart of the ocean is a deep place, the heart of a woman a deeper place; the heart of God the deepest place & there I'm loved deeply.

 Oh Man! Another great blog by +Steve Bremner, check this one out -

Which is better? One person bringing something to the table or everyone  bringing something to the table?
My post from last week about how you can't find the professional worship leader in the New Testament has been burning up on social media, at least at the time of writing this. I could replace “worship leader” with professionally paid pastor/expositor, and feel the result would be almost ...

My grandmother stepped into eternity this morning.

One of her last words to me was, "it's been a long journey..." & at 90, she would well know! She was born again at a very early age & only God Himself knows the effects of her continual prayers that have spanned almost a century, prayers for her country & for her family. It was well known that the desire of her heart was always to know Jesus more intimately & for her family to know Him as she did.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you"

When I was younger, my grandmother was always teaching me things but it was only this last year that she really taught me about thankfulness, being thankful for the small things, the things that many people take for granted. I'm just thankful that God chose her to be my grandmother & thankful for the time I had w/ her on this earth; we had some great times!

Rest In Peace Grandma, we'll miss you but we'll definitely meet again!

Prayer is a dialogue for those who have emptied themselves & a monologue for those who are full of themselves"

My devotions lately, dwelling on this:

Proverbs 23:4-5
Do not overwork to be rich;
Because of your own understanding, cease!
Will you set your eyes on that which is not?
For riches certainly make themselves wings;
They fly away like an eagle toward heaven.

Matthew 6:19-21 
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, 
where moth & rust destroy 
& where thieves break in & steal; 
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, 
where neither moth nor rust destroys 
& where thieves do not break in and steal. 
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
