The Church or Big Tech?

I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus, that in every way you were enriched in him in all speech and all knowledge— even as the testimony about Christ was confirmed among you— so that you are not lacking in any gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

(1 Corinthians 1:4-9) ESV

I asked the church for help preparing our people for the return of Jesus Christ and they excommunicated me. I pleaded with Big Tech for the same reason and they began to cooperate.

Flotsam and Jetsam

Fishing trawler grounded on a rocky shore

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

(Hebrews 4:12) NKJV

We’re cleaning up blog posts again and pulling personal development pieces out of the main texts for each day. We’ll keep it, but it doesn’t need to be in the teaching material.

Faith vs. Sight

while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

(2 Corinthians 4:18) NKJV

Male Authority

But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

(1 Corinthians 11:3) NKJV

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.

(Ephesians 5:22) NKJV

If Hell is Expanding Why isn’t the Earth Getting Bigger?

O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge—by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Frace be with you. Amen.

(1 Timothy 6:20-21) NKJV

Continuing the theme of weird things that people say on social media there’s another question which comes up from time to time which pertains to Jesus’ teaching on hell.

If hell is expanding, why isn’t the earth getting bigger?

Hell is Expanding in the New Testament

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

(James 3:6) NKJV

It may seem off the wall to claim that the expansion of hell is the cause of global warming. That’s because we’re in the third generation (X, Y and Z) who’ve been raised to think that hell’s a myth.
