Don’t be the great somebody

I love reading the Message Bible! I know the KJV is supposedly the most accurate but I can’t find any disagreement and face it King James didn’t speak my language. 😀 ROMANS 15:1 Strength is for service not status. If we are blessed…

Maybe it is just me

For years when I didn’t seem to be able to ‘fit in’ in the cultic church that was my heritage, I would ask myself “is it just me?” Is it just me when it seems there is so little real friendship, or even…

The joy in being needed

Just thinking today how important it is to be needed. The older I get, the more I understand how it is more blessed to give than to receive. My spouse is disabled; many of his disabled buddies give up because they are a…

God Is Love

My whole life from my first memories of God was a vision of Him as an angry, full of retribution God. I had fear of disappointing Him and paying dire consequences. ‘Be careful little, eyes, ears, mouth, etc. Because there’s a Father up…

Works of faith

Faith without works is dead according to scripture so what are these works? Are they the clothing you put on (or don’t put on)? Are they the jewelry you do or do not wear? Are they your hair style? OR Are they loving…

Life after 60 outside the cult

Where Are The Dead?

This was a lesson title taught by SG Norris at ABI. I loved (and feared) SG and appreciated him immensely, but as the years have gone by and my losses have been many, I am realizing the arrogance of any of us to…

Denying The Power

I was always taught that other churches were dead, dull, boring, and denying the ‘power’ because they didn’t jump, shout, dance, speak in tongues, etc. So what really is the ‘power’? Is it the emotional hype as it is taught in Pentecostal churches???…

Is the UPC a CULT?

Just read ocCULT by June Summers; the cult in this story began as a pretty normal ‘Pentecostal’ church but quickly morphed into craziness. The parallels to UPC (United Pentecostal Church) are subtle but obvious. Is UPC a cult? Here are some of the…

Appreciating Love: God Gave Me Biff

To fully appreciate the love of God, one needs a reference point. Often this may be one’s father who in his demonstration of unconditional love, lays a foundation of experience that would allow a belief in an all loving God. Unfortunately, many of…
