Staying or Going?

The biggest challenges for me as a Pastor are convincing non-believing people that God does exist, and then, guiding those willing to accept the journey to the right place to find God.

“What you do to the least of these you do to me?”

These few words could be the most undervalued words Jesus spoke, and the most misunderstood.

“Be Honest, You Don’t Fear God”

Be honest with yourself; you don’t fear the existence of a God, that is, any God in any form, because you don’t believe it is possible for such an entity to exist based on facts, science, rational thought, and so on.

“Stumbling Block to the Weak”

Paul said, “stumbling block.” He chose his words very wisely, as always. He didn’t say we’re doomed by simple behaviors. He meant that sometimes the simplest of acts, even as innocuous as eating, can trip you into places that you didn’t expect you’d go. He was talking about being “mindful”. Western religions don’t overtly speak in terms of mindfulness. That’s a very eastern understanding of spiritual development.
