I’ve talked about a similar topic several times over the years..but I didn’t know it went back to 2010. Sounds about right given what I’ve experienced over the years. Now there’s this article that exposes what is going on and unfortunately even the North American Missions Board is getting converged. Sad really..for the churches operating… Read more
Has gotten too entirely predictable…at least in churches. The worship music has become acoustic guitar based. Most of it is fairly predictable. Every once in a while a local band comes up with a song that’s pretty good like the worship leader at North valley came up with one called holy moment that’s pretty good. … Read more
Grabbed this post from Redditt…and i am going to reproduce it here in it’s entirety..just in case it goes poof: No, your congregation does not preach “biblical headship” “Headship” as a concept is given a lot of lip service, but few people actually practice it the way Christ does with the Church. I can’t… Read more
Of course not. However with this covid thing around folks, especially Christians, are the first ones hiding in their houses finding reasons to NOT gather and worship. Now comes an article that basically says singing in a group is so much more deadly that we should consider not doing it. The article, written by a… Read more
I have always had a strong faith. many times I have not known it..but others see it. I have had folks tell me things like “you have a bulldog faith. You have grabbed onto Jesus and latched on like a bulldog would a bone and refuse to let go however much life shakes you.” The… Read more
Politicians are saying idiocies like, “Our representatives in Texas have left us open to these kinds of attacks,” he tweeted. “Time to change our representatives.”. If you want to see what happens when there is NOT a gun free zone…this is it. How many more shots would this lunatic have gotten off when the police… Read more
It has been an interesting few months. The Lord and life are taking me and have taken me into directions I would never have gone on my own. It started with Bruce Conley asking me to assist in a restart at a church that is now called North Valley Church. I was highly hesitant but… Read more
I have been churchless for several years. I have had many issues with churches and the people that attend them. Just about every single one of them are fear infested, SJW/Churchian infested, and cannot handle someone who is willing to speak his mind when it goes against the grain. A friend of mine whom I… Read more
One of the many tragedies of the past 4 years has been my inability to find a church home. it’s been a long time and every church I have tried I do not feel like I belong there(including one i used to attend). This morning, one of the few men claiming the title of Christian… Read more
A short post..one with more links to other posts of mine. I have not had a great time with churches, or other Christians, to be blunt. These days the SJW’s have taken over many things including christianity and turned it into something I(and others) call churchianity. It is basically our version of the Pharisees…folks have… Read more
This incident took place late last year….it has taken me this long to calm down…as this was a man I respected in the local business community…no more. I have to tell you…if my faith in Jesus wasn’t as strong as it was I would have left Christianity long ago. Here recently I was attacked by… Read more
Can a Christian wife withhold sex as a way to change her husband’s bad behavior? August 1, 2015 / biblicalgenderroles Can sexual refusal be used by a wife to change her husband’s bad behavior?

Anytime a title like this gets put online folks are filled with skepticism…it’s understandable, most folks have never truly come face to face with a real demon. This includes most pastors, faith leaders, etc etc etc. Demons do exist..not in the Hollywood way but they do exist. The picture I am going to show you… Read more
It’s been nearly 3 years since my wife died. I have been in what I would call a personal morass. I have seemingly been stuck in one spot…unable to move forward. I was then blessed with a good job opportunity…but the sacrifice required was immense. I had to sacrifice my nearly 15 years of self-employment. … Read more
I went into my last job with high hopes that my talents and knowledge would be appreciated and utilized. It became very apparent that this was not the case. Sure I was getting paid 75k a year, and to some this is dream job. I worked at home, had great benefits, and wrote reports for… Read more

I have been doing a fair amount of commenting on Facebook. However this post needs more formatting control than what i can do on Facebook easily.

I have been asked what I was feeling right after Heather died. The days immediately after her death I do not remember much. I literally slept nearly 24 hours the morning I somehow drove myself home and then collapsed on my bed with no concern about anything else. The next month is a blur as… Read more
The Opiod Problem is Growing. What is Maryland’s response? Even MORE Enablement and a Statement of Faith and Personal Responsibility.
I made a post last year about how the push to put Narcan in the hands of all first responders was going to enable more overdoses. I am not saying this is the only reason but it is one of the biggest reasons. The economic circumstances for so many people has not changed…or in many… Read more
I have often posted links to my churchian experience. As I was surfing I came across this post on Vox Days site. My experience was at least confined to me. However another parent had his children attacked. Let me say one thing. If your church condones political correctness in ANY FORM your church is infested… Read more
(Update: It approved the resolution so it is now full Churchian mode)The Southern Baptist Convention could be heading squarely into Churchianity.
The Southern Baptist Convention, if this proclamation is ratified, will have gone from one of the most biblically based protestant denominations to squarely within the churchian theology. Resolution for the 2017 SBC Annual Meeting – Condemning the Alt-Right & White Nationalism Resolution On The Condemnation of the “Alt-Right” Movement and the Roots of White Supremacy… Read more
Just a quick preface note: I am going to break all kinds of punctuation rules starting with the title. I will capitalize things I feel are the most important not necessarily what grammar calls for and most assuredly not what the modern churchanity cultists call for. I have spent many months and even years and… Read more
I am tired of seeing Obama take every incident of shootings to scold this country on the exercising of our rights under the Constitution even though more and more of us are actually giving up those rights. This shooting was a targeted attack on Christians. Where’s the media outrage? Where’s the Al Sharptions? Where’s the… Read more
I usually do not post things of a personal nature here but since my beliefs are part of my businesses foundation I feel this is appropriate. Since my wife died over memorial day I have been having to adjust to such a huge loss and trying to keep not only myself together but also keeping… Read more
I have been visiting many churches in the past couple of years looking for someplace I can call my church home. My anchor throughout this journey has been two things: First is my faith in Jesus Christ. Second was my now deceased wife Heather. She helped me stay grounded in many ways. When she passed… Read more
Gay marriage is only the beginning. Words do have meaning and do have consequences Mr. President to wit: This morning, the Supreme Court recognized that the Constitution guarantees marriage equality. In doing so, they have reaffirmed that all Americans are entitled to the equal protection of the law; that all people should be treated equally,… Read more
Welcome to 2015 and the Obama admin has stated at the SCOTUS case now being heard about gay marriage that if the SCOTUS rules for gay marriage any institution that fails to comply might loose(let’s be honest it WILL change to WILL LOOSE) it’s NPO status. Do you understand what this means for ALL CHURCHES????… Read more
It’s not the Christians actively acting discriminatory against gays(who’s lifestyle is by definition a choice) but the other way around. Also Christianity is also a lifestyle(a choice of how to live as well). Yeah, you see, it’s actually the Christians that are the bigots….. or wait, maybe it’s not? No one targeted pro-gay bakeries, but gay activists… Read more

What is the most common form of horrid sound? It is called band in a box..that is where you drive the monitors so loud you can hear them over the main loudspeakers. It is usually due to bad monitor placement and the inability of the folks on stage to realize you don’t need to have… Read more
Are evangelical Christians rapidly becoming one of the most hated minorities in America? Once upon a time such a notion would have been unthinkable, but these days things are changing dramatically. All over the United States, evangelical Christians are being called “extremists” and evangelical Christian organizations are being labeled as “hate groups”. In fact, as… Read more

It starts at home…then goes to our churches. I have to say i’m guilty of the home bound version. I’m not nearly where God wants me to be. Secondly, our churches. If the church body won’t regulate the church according to first the Bible then secondly it’s own founding documents then the issues are going to continue. For all… Read more
Another example of persecution here in America. It is not coming to America..it is already here. The American Freedom Law Center today said it has asked the high court to review a 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling that Michigan pastors who preached the biblical condemnation of homosexual behavior were not protected by the First Amendment right… Read more
The below isn’t bold it’s nearly stupid. If you are using a gov’t mechanism to get around your entity having to pay taxes you shouldn’t be surprised when said gov’t pulls on your chain..because you’re wearing one! If you don’t want the gov’t “interfering” then give up the npo and you can freely talk about anything you want. Some pastors… Read more
These pastors are forgetting you are using a gov’t instrument to get around paying taxes. Because you are using a gov’t instrument the gov’t can most assuredly do this. Want freedom from gov’t interference? Drop your NPO status voluntarily. if you are paying taxes as per the laws of the land you can preach anything you want. More… Read more
As somebody adopted himself this man has consistently shown he doesn’t know much about Jesus’s gospel.

I wonder how many of your own people you have to destroy before you’ll realize you are only advancing the agenda of Satan with your attacks on each other. I wonder how many more destroyed lives the churches will allow before the pastors grow a set and start enacting biblical discipline on their congregations. I… Read more
I’ve been trying to be “more civilized” the past few years…it’s gotten me more problems with folks who think they know more than me about many things they have no idea about. The lid’s off now…:) I’m going to express how i feel and if folks can’t handle it..too bad for them. My loving wife likes to tell folks i’m a redneck…that… Read more
Just how i feel about everything..not just the government..but about most groups of people as well….seeing as how many of them think they know how to run my life.

The “gay” folks just as much right to refuse business to Christians as the Christians do to refuse to the Gays. Purely Constitutional. The fact the sate is apparently going to force the issue would be enough for me to move out of that state.

I’ve spoken about this kind of thing before. While the federal government and the Catholic church wrestle over healthcare-required contraception and abortions, city and county governments may have found a unique method of backdoor taxation on nonprofits. They simply double the water bill for churches and schools. That’s the focus of a court case… Read more
Read this carefully. this is the state the world is in..and where it is going. If you are easily disturbed i would not read this until you have prepared yourself.

Unfortunately they took their story to Sony…I have to say i’m not surprised at the twists and omissions and additions that were made…:( Based on the love story of two devout Christians, the movie version of “The Vow,” starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, strips the tale of its overt religious themes, which has some Christian reviewers… Read more

To All NPO’s…..If You Use A Government Instrument to Avoid Paying Taxes The Government CAN Do This Type of Thing
If you don’t want the gov’t or any other entity to be able to interfere with you then don’t use their vehicles to avoid paying taxes or get around regulations they also enforce. Otherwise they do have the right to regulate your behavior while using said instruments. If you truly want to be free then… Read more
I’m no fan of hte abuses of the IRS but these pastors are forgettign one thing. You are using an IRS regulation to avoid paying taxes( the 501 (c) series). If you are taking government funds or using govt regulations to get around something you can expect the government to exercise it’s monetary authority over you. If you… Read more

I know I would… Read more
There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to… Read more

There’s a new controversy about the Bible going around.

Ah yes. We aren’t going to try to convince…we are going to threaten to get our way. This is typical of folks who have bought into the twisted views on the Bible. These folks either knowingly or unknowingly are Satan’s tools. Read the entire article. It outlines very well the Christian’s obligations when confronted by a group like… Read more

It’s gotten stagnant. Most of it is slow paced..kinds like any churches have become. What happened to our outdoor celebrations and things like that?

Blckmore’s Night has grabbed my attention..but some of their lyrics… Read more
I went to church today specifically because it is Father’s day. If there’s no other day to go other than Jesus’ birthday and his death Father’s day(a day when we celebrate fathers) i think it owuld be hypocritical of me to NOT goto church on a day we celebrate fathers.
As a non-profit the church’s npo status is purely by the convenience of the gov’t involved…which means they CAN tell you what to say since you entered into this what effectively is a private agreement. If this church(and all others in this country) want to have true freedom..drop your npo status immediately. Then the gov’t has no reasonable expectation of being able to legally tell you… Read more
