Recent Extra Thoughts.

  • Edify Thyself. Pray in Tongues. - Thus, if praying in tongues edifies oneself and Paul was doing this constantly, then Paul was constantly uplifting his own spirit by this Spiritual gift.
  • Forgiveness & Prosperity? - rather than only confessing his sins and asking forgiveness, he also asks for deliverance and for prosperity
  • Time is Helpless Under the Onslaught of Faith - Faith is not under the curse of time; rather, time is under the boot of faith to serve it, and be for it.
  • What about Faith, Abraham & Jesus’ Commandments? - Did not Martha say, “I believe Lazarus would be resurrect at the last day”? Is this not fantastic theology? But Jesus rebuked her.
  • Times of Refreshing: Acts 3 - Redemption, healing and refreshment are not signs of the covenant, but God doing the covenant; becauses of this, if you have faith, then they are still guaranteed. 
  • Predestination and Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Peter then ties both this promise of forgiveness and the baptism of the Spirit in to the doctrine of predestination.
  • Is Jesus better than His own Life? - There is only one God, one bible and one definition of Jesus and His life. There is more to Jesus’ life than healing and wealth, and deliverance for this life; however, it is not less than these.

  • It’s a Metaphysics Issue, not a Gospel One - . It does not matter how twisted the scripture becomes, as long as someone inscribes “gospel centered,” “gospel issue,” or ‘for God’s glory,” to this dunghill, then it will be received as truth.

  • Faith & Feelings of Certainty - If you “feel” fear over a besetting sin you just committed and say secretly in your heart, “I will never overcome this,” you are in practical purposes acting like an atheist, because you are concluding reality off your inductive/subjective experiences and trampling them over God’s Word.
  • “Faith Salvation” & “Faith Healing” & Accountability Roman 9:19 - It is a command to get wisdom and to get it by faith. If you doubt, then you do not get it. You cannot say, ““it’s God’s Will” for me to be in this lack of wisdom,” because God has already commanded you to get wisdom by faith.
  • Snake Basterds & Not Breaking The Law of Moses - Jesus, right after name calling the Jews as “liars,” and “Sons of Satan,” asked if anyone can prove He has sinned? That is, sinned according to the Law of Moses. They could not.
  • Healing & Illegitimate Children - When Jesus rebuked people in the gospels for unbelief, it was indeed a discipline for them. They were told to stop this action of weak faith and then correct it with strong faith.
  • Religious Fan Boy Strikes again - I wonder if the religious Otakus would like it, if I took some of their statements that were said on the relative level, but then judge it on the ultimate level? Otaku, “this is my car.” Ok, “this is deceptively wrong, Jesus owns everything, even your car. What you need to do is repent and have faith.”

  • Who Puts Demons into Men? Yahweh - God merely picked out, one particular zealous demon, after enticing it with His original idea.
  • Father’s Day Dedication - A Good Father gives "all the things pagans seek [in wealth health], to his children. A good father gives his children whatever they want and not something else he wants to given them. A child proves God is their good father by getting from Him whatever they ask from him
  • The Most Gospel-Centered Man Who Ever Lived - This Jesus fellow, has been so duped by the word-of-faith movement that he has the audacity to make it a proof of being a born again disciple of God!
  • Blew Past the Doorway of Forgiveness in a Blazing Whirlwind - Maturity is having the strength of soul, to not merely leave the pig pin and go ask forgiveness; but rather, by God’s Spirit, to have the power of mind to receive the signet ring, and receive the BEST robe, and receive the sandals from the Father, and then march into the house with joy, with your head held high, because you belong there like a son, like a prince (Luke 15:22-23)

  • Experience for Epistemology & Jonathan Edwards - Sometimes it is a subtle heart battle for Christian epistemology. Take for example the moments that one becomes "afraid."
  • Martin Luther- The Bondage of the Will – Commentary - If man on the lesser “relative level” is not-free to sin and Satan, or to the Spirit of Life, then how much more is man not free on the “ultimate level,” when God is the only direct cause of all things?
