We live in a system, where the kingdoms of Earth may be interrupted or intercepted by the Kingdom of Heaven…

There is a constant context of consequences we all suffer, when we violate the Creator’s principles of life…

There really is a law of consequences, which when we take proper heed, we will produce a more successful and satisfying lifestyle…

The problem however seems to be that we appear to know more today about abuses, addictions, and other self-destructive behaviors, yet abuse, addiction, and self-destruction continue to increase…

We actually have the freedom to live life as we see fit, yet the consequences are predictable… they are knowable

We can enjoy forever the freedoms we so strongly desire, yet we often find ourselves self-enslaved, unplugged, addicted, stressed, and living in a perpetual state of dissatisfaction…

The problem is, we found the enemy and the enemy is us!

This is the limited news, but it’s not all the news…

There is ‘Good News’ that has broken through into our world…

And, even though this ‘Good News’ has been effectively high-jacked by nearly every brand of religion, spirituality, and political system, there is a renewable breakthrough…

It is Jesus … the Jesus of the Holy Bible … He is no mere prophet … He is The Christ.

The Way – The Truth – The Life …. John 14:6

Ordinary(?) People

There are no ordinary people.  You have never talked to a mere mortal.  Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations – these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat.  But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit – immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.  This does not mean that we are to be perpetually solemn.  We must play.  But our merriment must be of that kind (and it is, in fact, the merriest kind) which exists between people who have, from the outset, taken each other seriously – no flippancy, no superiority, no presumption. – C. S. Lewis

Nature’s Garden

Holiness is a flower that grows not in Nature’s garden.  Men are not born with holiness in their hearts, as they are born with tongues in their mouths: holiness is a divine offspring: it is a pearl of great price, that is to be found in no nature but a renewed nature, in no bosom but a sanctified bosom. – Thomas Brooks, Puritan
