Don’t Remain U...

Religion will always remain unchanged. Though a little lipstick, mascara, smoke and mirrors can fool people for a bit, it’s still the same old dead fleshy carcass. You can dress it up and and stand it on the street corner, but it will only bring temporal pleasure, and fail to...

YOU Can Change Cultu...

We have given in and given up. We have allowed culture to shape us, rather than us, shaping culture. We have maxed credit cards, lived outside of our means, had smaller families and bigger houses, purchased our produce and sent mom off to work in order to meet the bills and ensure that little...

The Currency of Time

I recently watched a futuristic movie called “In Time” where the people paid for things with time. Money was no longer a currency and everyone was guaranteed 25 years. After the person turned 25, their “clock would start”. This is much the same with real life. We are...

Fear is a Prison

There is no reason that anyone would choose a life of fear on purpose, especially if they have experienced freedom. The problem is, most people only know fear and have to be shown freedom to understand or even accept it. When someone lives in fear for so long, they begin to believe that it’s normal. Fear is not normal. Fear is a prison. I used to be bound by fear. Religion is a great proponent of fear. Fear is used to control, intimidate and manipulate people and ironically used by those who are living in fear themselves. Fear is truly putting “faith” into a possible negative outcome. Fear is the opposite of love and has no positive...

That’s a Shame Jul08

That’s a Shame

I was checking Facebook last week and came across a video about a Pastor that kinda messed up in the area of love. Emotions quickly rose up in me. Emotions of anger that he would say the things he did, calling people out and belittling them in front of everyone. Emotions of sadness for the...

The Wealthy Prisoner

I feel compelled to write about this because it is something that I myself struggle with and have struggled with most of my life. I am being very candid here and I know that there are many others that are very much the same as me. I live in Canada, one of the wealthiest countries in the...

The Paradigm of the ...

You may have heard it spoken that the Kingdom of God is an upside down or backwards Kingdom. If you want to be first, be last. If you want wealth, give. If you want life, lose your life. The biggest thing that Jesus exposed or focussed on in His ministry was the matters of the heart. We may...

The Right Reason

If we can teach our children to listen to the Holy Spirit, we won’t need a bunch of rules. Do we have boundaries? YES, but with plenty of room for error. It takes faith and cannot be done if we as parents aren’t led by the Holy Spirit. Lead by example. I know I will get some know-it-all that will now post “So I am just supposed to let my kids run and play in the street hoping they hear from the Holy Spirit.” LOL Not quite what I am talking about. Rules like that keep your child safe. I am more talking about forcing your child to do spiritual things rather than showing them by leading them. Many think that telling and...

Not Your Favourite B...

Let me start by defining favouritism…  “The practice of giving unfair preferential treatment to one person or group at the expense of another.” ` Oxford Dictionary God does not favourite anyone. Other versions of the Bible say that He is not a respecter or persons. I used to joke and...

I was a Methodist.

I wasn’t really a Methodist in the way we think, but I did follow a method. Oh, the simplicity of the Gospel. Jesus has a way of revealing Himself when you truly think you are doing what He wants. I used to struggle and strive to connect with Jesus. I would sing at the top of my lungs,...
