New Blog

I have started a new blog.  It's very similar to this one.  But life got real, and it got messy.  My life is not some Little House on the Prairie, everything gets solved in an hour thang.  It's real and it good and sometimes it's painful.  

So, that being said, my new blog will have a lot of the same kind of stuff this one does, but there may be some heart wrenching stuff there too.  It will be a hodgepodge;  kind of like real life.  Please drop by!

Fifty Shades of Filth!

Proverbs 15:14 NLT
"A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while a fool feeds on trash."

Right now, at this particular day in history, there is a craze about the books and movie, "Fifty Shades of Grey".  I'm completely flabbergasted that Christian women are flocking to read and see this trash!  How can someone filled with the Holy Spirit of God, watch this garbage?  How do "Christians" have this separation of spiritual and physical?  

Many people may think I'm a legalistic or a prude.  After all, it's just entertainment, right?  Wrong!  May I never entertain myself with filth that offends the one and only pure, holy God!

Carnal Christians. Really???

1 John 1:5-6 "... God is light and there is no darkness in Him at all.  So, we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth."

How do professing Christians live in spiritual darkness?  This is one major thing that I cannot grasp and yet I see it every day.  I'm not talking about an occasional lie or temper flare-up, although these are still sin.  I'm talking about constantly lying, always being negative, twisting scripture, and truly hating people.  How do people live this way "all the time" and yet say they have fellowship with God?  They read their Bibles and go to church, but nothing changes.  

Am I being unbiblically judgemental in having such a problem with these people or am I being discerning?  Is it wrong for me to see someone as an unbeliever even though they claim otherwise, when their "fruits" are sheer rottenness?  Can the Holy Spirit really live in someone who is consumed by hate and who lives in dishonesty?  I truly believe He does not!  True Christians will be different; not perfect, but different.  The fruit of the Spirit is not optional!  If a tree does not bear good fruit, God will throw it into the fire.  Am I missing something here?!
