Welcome! What Is Truth?

Welcome to the blog!

You've made it this far and I'm glad you have. If you have found this site it is more than likely because we had a conversation. My hope is that you came away from the conversation willing to consider why you believe what you believe and if the foundation of what you believe is solid.

When trying to find truth, things can become very gray. There was a time in my life when things were not so black and white, there was much gray. It was no way to live, these days I can attest that I have never had such clarity when it comes to the truth. That truth is not my truth, or any idea of "common" truth, it is the only standard of truth people can truly agree on...the Bible! We will always grow and learn (if we want to), I haven't attained some state of nirvana or awesomeness but through coming to a better understanding of God through the Bible, I realized truth is absolute.

"I have my own views about spirituality"

I spoke to a woman at our outreach in Rockaway today that really is a lot of the same old smorgasbord of idolatry but I thought it was worth noting a few points to consider...here are a few quotes from what she said:

1 - "Ahh I don't believe all of the Bible...but I'm spiritual"

2 - "I'm a spiritual person...I believe everyone is inherently good and we don't really need to go to Church. 

3 - "I believe there is a higher power but I don't believe it's a specific god.There are so many different religions and we can't narrow it down or limit it (salvation)"


1 - "Ahh I don't believe all of the Bible...but I'm spiritual"

1 - A response I gave in hopes she would clearly see that her beliefs were faulty:

*Full Disclosure: 

1) I am probably polishing up the questions and answers a bit as I can't remember word for word what was said...I'm doing my best to remember and am trying hard to stay true to the account!

2) I d…

Foundation: Jesus was sinless!

He did not sinHebrews 4“4 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.” 2 Corinthians 5“21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” Hebrews 7“26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;” 1 John 3“5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.”
1 Peter 2 “21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps: 22 “Who committed no sin, nor was deceit found in His mouth”; 23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who j…

Purposeful Giving

Ephesians 4:28
"28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth."

Have you ever asked what's my purpose? Maybe, what's God's will for my life?

Well the straightforward answer is repent (if you haven't already) and get to work. :)

Well it's not just get to work because that would be self focused and I think that is our main problem!!

If someone is truly repentant then they will not just work for themselves but they will work for others. How could you not considering the grace we have been given?

Isn't it crazy how we stick to the don't dos rather than getting into the DOs in the Bible?

You know stuff like: 

Mark 12
"30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yo…

Fearing and Obeying God Not Man!

I thought it would be neat to share something that is not talked about much...the faith of a couple of midwives. It doesn't sound so glorious but it's awesome how they were used by God!

Exodus 1
"8 Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. 9 And he said to his people, “Look, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we; 10 come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and it happen, in the event of war, that they also join our enemies and fight against us, and so go up out of the land.” 11 Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh supply cities, Pithom and Raamses."

-The prior Pharaoh of Egypt knew Joseph and gave them a place to live.
-Israel experienced the blessings of living in a modern city (compared to the surrounding countries)
-Egypt had exploded into the superpower of the world via God blessing Israel
--The new ruler did not know Joseph and to…

I'm a good person

I’ve got some bad news for you: You’re not good! I know this may come as a surprise but momma’s little pumpkin is truly a sinner...no matter how much mamma loves you. Guess what? I’m a sinner too. My momma loves me but she truly recognizes I’m a sinner and is willing to admit it. In fact, she even believes she is a sinner. You may be upset or even indignant towards discussion of you actually being not good. How much more so because I said you’re a sinner? Do keep in mind I’m just agreeing with God about what He says about us. I ask for a moment of your time to consider what is written below. I pray you will take heed to what God says to all of us:
Romans 3 10 As it is written:
“There is none righteous, no, not one; 11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. 12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.”
Um..ok, so God is apparently saying: there is no one righteous, not a single person. There’s none wh…

Before The Beginning!

Did you know that the God of the Bible existed before the beginning of everything? Did you know that God has always existed and always will?
John 1 (NKJV) “1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
-Ok that’s not that convincing…God was in the beginning. This doesn’t say He has always existed or that He is eternal. (Eternal means always existing; Without beginning or end) Alright, good point!
Psalm 102 “27 But You are the same, and Your years will have no end.”
-God’s years never end!! AwesomeJ -If God is eternal that certainly solves our age old question, “Who was there in the beginning?”  -But what about before the beginning?
John 8 “57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”

58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
59 
Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.”
-O…
