The Divine/Human Synergy

Posted by admin in November 5th, 2020 | 5 comments 
Published in obedience, prayer

We must acknowledge this thing called DIVINE HUMAN SYNERGY! Yes, God is working. And yes, God is a Redeemer. God is absolutely omnipotent. But God has also given humankind a free will. Because of FREE WILL, sin occurs every-single-day and sin is NEVER God’s will. By its very definition, sin is the opposite of God’s […]

This week Jerry Falwell, Jr., president of Liberty University, the largest Christian university in the world, posted a video on his Instagram account of friends and family partying on his yacht. (There’s so much wrong with that sentence). The party’s theme was taken from a most disturbing and depraved reality TV show, The Trailer Park […]

I believe Tim Keller is a Democratic Socialist and a Cultural Marxist. But it doesn’t really matter what I think. Let’s take a look at what Tim Keller says and we can come to a conclusion based on Keller’s own words. In 2018, Tim Keller tweeted, “Do I really need to defend that I’m not […]

Am I a Pharisee?

Published in freedom, obedience

Recently I received an email from a sister in Christ calling me a Pharisee. Hmmm…a Pharisee? The dictionary gives two definitions of Pharisee: 1) A Pharisee was a member of an ancient Jewish sect that emphasized strict interpretation and observance of the Mosaic law in both its oral and written form; 2) A hypocritically self-righteous […]

I love being in Lithuania. Especially on days like today when the sun is shining and there is fresh snow on the ground. A delicious 21 degrees Fahrenheit is for me a perfect temperature. But not all days are like this…some days it’s a struggle. Not because of Lithuania, but because of homesickness, missing family […]

In our apartment building here in Vilnius we are required to clean the common areas/entry areas of our building every third month. There’s a list on the door as you leave the building reminding all the tenants which month is their month to clean. Welcome to the cooperative neighborhood of a former Soviet State. September […]

We are one week from leaving for Lithuania and we still don’t have a place to live. But I keep humming the Christmas carol, “No crib for a bed…” Even the Son of God on His advent to earth didn’t have a place to live. That strikes me as so strange. It wasn’t like God […]

Am I Free or Just Loose?

Annie Dillard makes a very interesting distinction between freedom and just being loose in her book An American Childhood. Daryl is reading this book to me as part of our evening ritual. Dillard’s phrase, (used to describe her father that quit his job to travel the river), keeps rolling around in my head, “He wasn’t […]

We just finished our eighth week in Klaipeda, Lithuania, and we love it more each day. Someone asked me what I miss most of our lives in the U.S. Things? No, not “things”. I don’t miss movies or TV or restaurants or shopping malls or having a car. I don’t miss our house or the […]

Gentle Whispers and Unvisited Tombs

Published in faith, obedience

“The growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs” (George Eliot, 1861, Middlemarch). I hope and pray that I […]
