Comfort

Pope Benedict the Sixteenth said that the world offers comfort but you were made for greatness. I like that.  Comfortable people do not do great things.  We need to strive in life in order to achieve greatness.  The media distracts you from this by…

What Do You Fear?

We discussed how Satan wants you to fear.  Fear is what gains him power.  Fear stops you from feeling the love of God.  You cannot love and fear at the same time.  You fill yourself with God’s Love and fear is destroyed.  But what…

Head Covering

I don’t know what the re-found desire for woman to wear head coverings is all about, whether it is the Hebrew Roots Movement Christianity or people have started to find Corinthians again or women think it’s a cool fashion statement, but it seems to…
