” An ex-offender himself, Bull said forgiveness is his prime motivation. He was forgiven, and given a second chance…” Second chances is what God is about and inmates especially need a second chance with society and God.
“Does the idea of communion with God draw you in or push you away? There is much in our lives that distracts and prevents us from experiencing genuine communion with God. Living in a fast-paced society with endless demands and countless opportunities can mean that slowing down to commune with God can seem indulgent if not outright impossible. Amid our busyness, we can even find ourselves feeling guilty when we are not constantly accomplishing things.”
I always love reading posts from Greek scholar Dr. Bill Mounce. Here is a good one showing differences between different translation that are hinged on the translators philosophy.
“From where I stand, it seems affirming Christians must not only make exegetical leaps to come to their conclusions, they must ignore a lot of emotional and existential reasons not to as well.”
Simple but needed article and it’s true. “We cannot find sin both humorous and repulsive at the same time; either we laugh at it or run from it, but we cannot do both. How can you be serious about walking away from these sins if you’re laughing at them?”
Quote Of The Day
“More often than not, we want him to have fairy wings and spread fairy dust and shine like a precious little star, dispensing nothing but good times on everyone, like some kind of hybrid of Tinker Bell and Aladdin’s Genie. But the God of the Bible, this God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, is a pillar of fire and a column of smoke.”-Matt Chandler (The Explicit Gospel, 29)
