    3 Reasons Why Many Pastors Fail to Provide Lasting Hope

    The thing is, there is an element of truth to the idea of the church transforming the community. After all, we are called to be the light of the world. We are called to be the salt. The problem is not, wanting to serve your community. After all we are called to love our neighbours. The problems...

    3 Reasons Why Many Pastors Fail to Provide Lasting Hope

    I think a major reason is mentioned really at the end of the article. I think many pastors that do see the truth don't speak out of fear. Fear to be mocked, to be the next Harold Camping. Fear to be wrong an perhaps even be labelled a false prophet. I perssonally know a few pastors that have...

    A Warning About the Coronavirus Judgment

    I think that makes sense. The first human reaction is fear. We see something happen that we can't really understand or control, and we instincitively feel that there is something bigger in play. Now things are reopening, we think we are in control again. Mankind is winning from the virus, so...

    How Long IS a Generation?

    The question though is, what is Babylon in revelations 17 referring to? It's easy to think, well Babylon is mentioned and Babylon hasn't been rebuilt, so there is a problem. But, if you look deeper at what the text says and what other parts of scripture have to say, you'll reach a different...

    Generation vs. Generation

    As a milennial, I do understand why the younger generations are disappointed. Mind you, I disagree with people saying it's great that the older generations are dying, but I do understand. Just some things from my experience. My wife and I both have a decent job. So that's two incomes. Still...

    Israeli doctor in Italy: We no longer help those over 60

    Or you know it's simply that their bodies are old and less able to repair the damage. The reason young people die less is because their lungs can take the massive beating this virus gives. You die because your lungs get torn to shreds and you drown in your own blood. Old people have less stamina...

    Coronavirus update

    I disagree. I think opening all businessess up again is a huge mistake. This thing is super contagious. Reports from Italy are horrible and chilling. If you let it run it's course the death toll in the states will reach millions. Italy is on virtual lockdown and over 600 people get killed...

    Re-examining the Olivet Discourse

    Something I notice in this whole mess is how determined people are to just live on. Or better put, they are stubborn and refuse to listen. Take Italy for example, almost a thousand people die of Corona every day, the whole country is in lockdown, yet, professional football (soccer) clubs are...

    The Lords Final Call?

    I remember when my son was born, my wife was in labour for over a day. We were super excited, and a little scared, the first hour or two. When we soon settled into a rhythm of, oh yeah let's just have a conversation and, oh wait there is another contraction. Well, 24 hours went by and the kid...

    The Lords Final Call?

    You know, I find it interesting to see that if you visit the more secular parts of the internet, you see a lot of people mentioning the four horsemen of the Apocalypse (take a site like Reddit for example). People get that weird things are afoot. I think part of it is panic. People are scared...

    Coronavirus update

    Couldn't agree more. As a youth pastor, I cancelled our whole program for at least a month. And I was proven right. If I hadn't, the one person in our group that has Corona would have definitely infected more. But we aren't sitting around doing nothing. We are mobilizing the youth to help...

    Coronavirus update

    Just a Europeans perspective. This is really not a wise way of looking at it. If you read and hear the stories coming from Italy. It is an ever further escalating situation over there even though the country is in lockdown. And they aren't just dying by the hundreds. They are going to full...

    Coronavirus update

    Every circumstance is different, but I'll say this. Sometimes, all we need to do to help someone, is to absord their anger, pain and confusion. We are hardwired to give answers. It's the basic human reaction. Oh I don't know what is going on or Man I am angry about this. I am reminded of the...

    Coronavirus update

    MSM has reported this as well.

    Coronavirus update

    I think a number of things. First, I don't know how much faith one should have in Chinese numbers. They are not a reliable witness, at any rate. Second, I wouldn't consider the current numbers the end game or a good indication of how lethal the virus is. The virus is in it's early stages, the...
