How Will You Handle Persecution?

Popular Thinking

American Christians realize that persecution is not far away. This is because today’s culture is hostile towards Christians. The secular world believes we are responsible for the Supreme Court overturn of Roe v Wade. They are half-expecting the same thing will happen to same gender marriages. They are alarmed about this.

Persecution in America

“Contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” Jude

Am I thinking too much? Or will there be persecution in America in my lifetime? I wrote these questions on a sticky note. I wanted to pray about them. They had come to my thoughts as I studied for the fall Bible study.

The Feminist Movement began when I was in high school. It had a huge impact on my generation and beyond. Feminists were known for throwing off the traditions once held by women. Feminism was recognized for freedom from the existing roles and expectations of women, as mothers and keepers of the home.

I’m not one to normally take to my bed. But when a couple trying circumstances hit at once that’s just what I did. First were feelings of failure then the loss of power, finally helplessness. I shut the bedroom door and went to bed. I was a wreck.

I knew this day would come. God is leading me away from blogging weekly. For the last 9 years I’ve been blogging intermittently but steady for the last four. I have made lots of friends. I am thankful for each one who is following this blog.

A Church Lady Becomes a Christian

A book¹ I once read quoted this verse, “Those who believe in the Son of God have a testimony of God in them.”² Our testimonies or stories are unique. God wants us to be intentional about sharing them. Mine is about how a church lady became a Christian. This may sound a bit backwards. At the same time, you may relate.

Risky Behavior – Part 2

Start them early to love God’s Word!

A reader disagreed with my last blog post. It cited scientific research which claims, people reading or listening to the Bible four times a week, are less likely to practice behaviors such as gambling, pornography, drunkenness, and sex outside of marriage.¹ The reader’s argument goes as follows:

My Conviction on Marriage

I have a sincere conviction that marriage is a covenant agreement between a man and a woman. This conviction is based on the Bible. I believe the Bible is God’s inspired, infallible and authoritative Word.

Joe Biden – part 2

I am a Christian so whenever a Democrat becomes President I am concerned. It feels like the ground is shifting under my feet. I wonder what it will mean for Christians. I speculate whether Christians will be persecuted with the inevitable changes.

American Heritage | What is it?

Before continuing on I would like to share what I learned from my readers. Last week’s post was whether America, in the true sense of the word, was ever a Christian nation. I concluded it was not.

Joe Biden | God’s Man for Our Times

As a Christian, how can I say President Joe Biden is God’s man for our times? Especially after Biden just lifted the transgender military ban. Am I deluded? Would you believe God showed me this while I was reading the Bible and praying?

What is happening to the U.S.A.?

When the mob descended on the U.S. capitol this week did you wonder what was happening to America? Maybe you have been thinking about this long before Trump-supporters occupied Congress. I know I have.

Untouched Hearts

On Sundays when I was kid, I would dress up in my Sunday best, go to church, sing praises to God, hear a great sermon and go home to a big Sunday dinner. When I grew up I continued the same practice. Plus I read the Bible, attended Bible study and sang in the choir.

I Can’t but Jesus Can!

Do your pastor’s sermons inspire you to live for Jesus? This past week my pastor did just that. The scripture was from Mark 9:14-29. This is the story about the epileptic son that the disciples could not heal.
