- What Is A Pop Tart Christian?
Contrary to what some seem to believe, there’s no such thing as a Pop Tart Christian.
Strong and mature Christians do not simply pop out of the oven overnight.
The fruit of the Spirit takes time to grow in a person.
What Is A Pop Tart Christian?
I read the quote above and immediately thought about pop tarts. Unlike the picture on the left, there was practically nothing inside. Very little filling compared to the dough. Not unlike a new Christian. Or even an “old” Christian who was satisfied with the initial “committing their life to Jesus” – and then does nothing after that. Someone who doesn’t allow the Holy Spirit to fill them and guide their lives.
- Did God Forsake You If Cancer Surgery Isn’t 100% Successful?
Never will I leave you or forsake you. I suppose pretty much every Christians knows that line. Or something like it, depending on which translation you read. It’s from God. But do we know where it comes from? And of course, the ultimate questions related to that line – do we believe God will never forsake us and do we live like we believe it?
- Great Commission apparently isn’t so great anymore
The Great Commission apparently isn’t so great anymore. I feel like that must make God cry. And yet, it doesn’t seem to bother many Christians these days. And why should it? Apparently, they don’t even know what it is. And way too many Christians have never even heard of the Great Commission! So sad.
- What is religion? What do you think?
What is religion? The truth is, you don’t even have to agree with me on what I say religion is when I use the word. You just need to understand what I mean. Then, you’re free to agree or disagree with what I write about the possibilities of finding God with or without religion.
- Can a perfect Jesus teach us how to pray about temptation?
By the time we’re done, I hope to show that we really can rely on what Jesus taught and showed by example to learn how to pray about temptation. Prayer is our weapon against temptation. So it’s in our best interest to learn how to use it. And the best way to do that, if you’re like me, is to understand some of the hows and whys about it.
- Does church service make you feel forgiven?
Does church service make you feel forgiven? As Christians, we should feel forgiven. It won’t always happen. We’re human. We have ups and downs. But we should feel forgiven more often than not. If not, maybe we need to ask the Holy Spirit for comfort, guidance, strength – whatever is missing in our lives that’s preventing us from having that life to the full Jesus promised us.
