Did Paul Start Christianity?

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?  My opinion is that it had to be Paul!  He was a heck of a persuasive character to convince those Greek-speaking communities to give up […]

The Civil War and God’s Will

“Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged. […]

Doubt

I slept in a little this morning but I guess that’s the luxury of being retired. It’s quiet, I have my first cup of dark roast in hand, and God is already talking to me. The word “doubt” comes to mind for some odd reason. Doubt is one of those words that Christians are uncomfortable […]

No Master Copy

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?

Forbidden Fruit

Enjoying my first cup of coffee on a beautiful Saturday morning. I got to thinking… did Adam and Eve have coffee in the Garden of Eden? There are two creation accounts in the first book of the Bible, Genesis. Chapter one of Genesis describes the first creation story and isn’t at all about Adam and […]
