A Possible, Alternative View of Passion Week

Most believe Jesus was crucified on Friday afternoon and arose on Sunday morning. That is what we have been taught over the centuries. However, in Matthew 12:40 Jesus says that he will be in the ground for 3 days and 3 nights! As you will see below, what we have been taught doesn’t line up with what Jesus said would happen. I propose here a possible solution to this dilemma.

What John 3:16 Does Not Say

How often have we heard that this is the most important part of the Bible? Christians hang on it very strongly, and rightly so. As in my post about scripture mistakes, I want to go over this deeper. People need to dig into what it says, and then live by it. There is no arrogance in it, yet people become arrogant when they read it. Sad, isn’t it?

Climb, Confess, Communicate

I was an F-14 Tomcat radar intercept officer, and one of my many jobs in the plane was navigation. I needed to know not only where we were but also where our carrier was. If we were close enough to reach land, it was also my job to know if there were any alternative airports that we could use in an emergency. It is easier to do from an airport that doesn’t move and has landmarks around it. What did I need to do if I was lost?

The Golden Calf and Comfort Zones

When I first read the story about the Golden Calf in Exodus 32, it was very easy for me to judge both Aaron and the people. I could not believe that anyone would be that stupid. I was a very immature Christian at that time. Since then I have realized that there is a powerful story there for both you and me. So, I share this with you.

Gospel According To Lucifer

What if God’s #1 angel wrote a book about the Creation in the style of “The Book of Acts”? How do things look from His point of view? I was inspired to write this after reading C. S. Lewis’s “The Screwtape Letters”. That book is a great read. I was told to read that book every 3 years, to see how much it changed each time. It was not the book that had changed, I changed so much I felt like I was reading a different book each time! Remember, this is written from Satan’s point of view, as I speculate it to be.

Judgement Day!

Whether you are a Christian, Jew, Muslim, or profess another religion, you have heard of “Judgement Day”. No, not like in the Terminator series of movies! It’s when we stand before God to answer for our deeds and thoughts in life. Was I good enough? Did I help enough people? Was I a drain on those around me? There’s just us, a defense attorney, the prosecution team, and the judge. Wow, that Judge has some desk! How will this play out? (This is the revised and expanded version!)

God’s Voice

Does God speak to you? If someone else says that God speaks to them, are they hallucinating? What are examples of God speaking to someone, both in the past and today? These are all good questions, about something very important. Let’s take a look at the subject of God speaking to people.

Who Cannot Be A Disciple

There are those who call Jesus ‘Teacher’, and that is good. I am glad that people believe that they can learn something from Jesus. There are those who call Jesus ‘Savior’, and that is also good. It is wonderful that some people have realized that they need Jesus as a defense attorney when Satan accuses them before God. There are those who call Him ‘Lord’, and that is very good. But there’s more to the story.
