All over the world, you see Christians pray in large groups in public areas. But, I don't recall that Jesus ever taught us to pray in public. Did he? Let's examine this. "I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting." 1 Timothy 2:8 In October of 2014, … Continue reading Did Jesus Teach Us To Pray In Public?
I love reading the Bible over coffee first thing in the morning. Then I got to thinking... was it Peter or Paul that was responsible for starting the Christian religion?

Coffee is extremely good this morning! How do you have yours? Mine’s black! … Continue reading Did Jesus Die For Our Unpardonable Sins?
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’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 … Continue reading Narrow Gate
Coffee! Coffee! The sun has finally risen. After my first cup of dark roast I got to thinking about the master copy of the Bible. Wouldn’t it be great if the original manuscript of the Bible existed?
