WHAT IS A DIGITAL PASTOR?

Some of you may have noticed that I added a tagline, “Your Digital Pastor” to the site. But what is that? What does that even mean? What is a digital pastor?

WHAT IS A DIGITAL PASTOR-

Digital pastor was this statement that had been bouncing around in my head for a little while and I just couldn’t shake it. I believe it was from the Lord, and maybe a little bit of my ADD too. I constantly live in the midst of both of those. So I went with it. Here is what it means to me and what I hope it means for you.… Read the rest

THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT YES AND NO

Every day we have to make literally thousands of choices and the answer to those choices really comes down to only two options. Let’s take a look at the real truth about yes and no.

THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT YES AND NO

Last week we talked about killing time and putting worthless things before our eyes. This kind of plays off of that understanding about what we are putting before ourselves.

When we are faced in the moment of decision we have the option to say yes or no. It’s that simple. When you really break it down though, you are choosing both. Whether we are talking about time management, marriage, adhering to our morals and ethics, or managing your finances, every answer is a yes and no.… Read the rest

DOES THE BIBLE TEACH SOCIALISM OR COMMUNISM?

With the presidential election later this year some of the candidates believe that we should take from the rich and give to the poor. It sounds Biblical right? But, does the bible teach socialism or communism?

One tenant of Socialism and Communism is that the rich should take care of the poor, goods should be distributed by and to the community (in a nutshell). The government should distribute goods from those with to those without.

It is clearly evident that there is a huge gap between the rich and poor in America, and we are failing at the whole “unto the least of these” aspect of the Gospel, but should we take from the “upper class” and freely give it to the “lower class?”

There is a short answer and a long answer to this question.… Read the rest

DOES THE BIBLE REALLY SAY DO NOT JUDGE?

A common statement I hear touted from believers and nonbelievers alike is to stop judging. They chant, “The Bible says not to judge,” or “stop judging me, only God can.” Is this true though? Does the Bible really say do not judge?

Well, it really isn’t a black and white answer as many want to make it out to be. Yes, as believers we are called not to judge, but on the flip side we are, and I’ll explain.

 

We Are Not Supposed To Judge The World…Yet

As believers we are given two commands when it comes to following Christ: love God and love people.… Read the rest

REVIEW OF THE ART OF WORK

I recently read The Art Of Work by Jeff Goins (I’ll put a link to it at the end of the article for you). He is a writer, podcaster, fellow blogger, and a speaker. In reality he is much more than that, and I’ll explain that later. I picked up the ebook version a couple weeks ago when his publisher made the kindle version only $.99 for a limited time. Now, I’m not a kindle reader. I’ve been there, tried that, and just couldn’t do it. I love holding an actual book.

Book Review

With that being said I broke down and bought it because, hey, you can’t beat a book for a buck.… Read the rest

KILLING TIME & THE WORTHLESS THINGS BEFORE OUR EYES

There are hundreds of books on time management and organization, but none of them can prepare you for the black holes for time wasting of Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. Trust me I am definitely not at the top of the class when it comes to mastering this area, but I want to share with you a challenging thing I came across last week.

As I was doing my morning Bible reading I came across a scripture that really challenged me and how I am spending my time, and what I am putting before myself.… Read the rest
