Should Tennessee Make The Bible Its Official State Book?

Having my coffee in my comfy chair this morning. I was a bit under the weather yesterday struggling with mild flu-like symptoms all day from my second COVID vaccine shot. But, at least I have coffee! I ran across a story this morning that has my curiosity up and I would like your input about […]

9 Things That Must Change If Christianity Were Proven True

During my first coffee this morning, I wondered what would happen if a group of archeologists found manuscripts written by Jesus, and after years of study, found them to be authentic? How would that change Christianity? Would people of other religions want to become a Christian? That made me wonder, so I decided to write […]

10 Oddities About The 10 Commandments

There are 10 oddities about the 10 Commandments that you may or may not know. I used to spend a lot of time reading and rereading the book of Exodus, especially the part that contains the Ten Commandments. As with most parts of the Bible, the more I read it the more it has to […]

Did Jesus Die For Our Unpardonable Sins?

My favorite coffee is a dark roast and I spend a lot of my writing at Starbucks. When I’m at home I use a Starbucks dark roast and the drip method, making one cup at a time. It’s slow but worth it. Coffee is extremely good this morning! How do you have yours? Mine’s black! […]

moses ten commandments

I got to Starbucks early this morning and immediately thought about Moses and the Ten Commandments because of a meme I responded to yesterday. I was just thinking, wouldn’t it be cool when God said, “You shall worship no other gods…” if you could ask him for a reason other than, “Or else I’ll destroy […]

Narrow Gate

I’m at Starbucks this morning with a great cup of the bold blend. Ahhh! Got me to thinking about what life is like after death – or what Christians call Eternal Life. When Jesus started his ministry, he took his chosen twelve and a bunch of other people up on the side of a mountain […]
