(Click to read more) I realize that even in the early days of our nation there was great divide between the leaders; yes, even duels have been fought as a result, but these days, I'm certain that if dueling were still legal there would be a whole lot of gun smoke in the air! Continue reading

(Click to read more) As a result of Joe's racing duties he often misses our Sunday morning services. The other day he texted me that he would be missing several January and February services. When he is gone I really miss him and so does everyone else in our church. Yet, in spite of missing him, we are all excited because Joe is fulfilling his calling and ministry Continue reading

So, if you still consider yourself under the Law, and many Christians do, then guess what??? You still live under the consequences of sin and you have made the cross of Christ of none effect in your life. And if you teach that people still live under the Law, then you take the cross away from those you teach. Not good! Continue reading

For those of us with long time church affiliation it just might be a great time to detox from the religious doctrines that we have been taught for many years. Continue reading

To begin with, Paul was most likely the most important person in the early formation of the Church. If it were not for his sharing the revelations of the new covenant with the early, newly forming Church, most likely the Church would have just been just another extension of Judaism, only with Christ added to i Continue reading

Listen, when we understand all that Christ did for us and how great God's love is for us, we can't do anything other than to feel good about ourselves. And guess what? People who feel good about themselves, like I'm talking about are no longer sinners! They actually begin to live lives that match what God has actually created them to be! Continue reading

It seems that so many stay home from church these days. Some who understand grace leave traditional churches and no longer attend any place. My hope would be that they would plant new churches, but it seems that few are interested in that right now. However, no matter what...a simple fact is that CHRISTIANS NEED TO PHYSICALLY MEET AND FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS! Continue reading

(Click to read more) Paul and Silas didn't go forward that morning. Instead they, like little church mice, very quietly dodged out the door. By this time they felt like the others in the congregation, totally condemned. They knew that they should have gone forward to the altar so that God would be totally pleased with them. Paul, hanging his head low said to Silas, "I don't know about you, but I think I need to get right with God!" Silas said, "Amen Brother!" It was then that they left the scene, going back to heaven, but wondering if they would still be welcome there! Continue reading

(Click to read more) OK.....I admit it...I'd love to have been able to spy on a couple of guys! Yes, I guess they call that voyeurism, but I sure would have been able to do that! I would have loved to have spent 3 years of my life spying on Jesus and Paul. Continue reading

(Click to read more) All of a sudden my Bible read as a different book. Shortly I had to stand before my congregation and tell them, "Many of the things I had taught you are incorrect!" Of course that didn't go over too well with some. Within weeks I was labeled a heretic, false prophet and even worse. As a result we watched a mass exodus from our church in Florida. Continue reading

(Click to Read More) The cancer can kill, but fear, shame and condemnation can spiritually and emotionally kill way before physical death arrives. This can be avoided when we know that God is complete control, at all times! Continue reading

(Click to read more) Friends, may I suggest that we all take a deep breath and relax! Let's focus on the wonderful revelations that God is showing us these days.... revelations of peace, hope and joy; revelations detailing Kingdom life within the fullness of the New Covenant Continue reading

(click to read more) Please read and consider this very carefully.....If you are being constantly taught that you have to work harder, do more, obey more, etc., etc., in order to please God then you are not being taught the true Gospel of Jesus Christ! Continue reading

(Click to read) but when people tell or ask me about Peter teaching repentance from sin in Acts chapter 2, my answer is pretty simple....PETER DIDN'T KNOW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT! He had not been exposed to the revelations of the new covenant yet. That didn't come until much later when Paul came back to town! Continue reading

(Click to read more) I am not really a fan of Joel Osteen. I've never been to one of his services, I've never read one of his books, I've probably watched only 2-3 of his TV programs during my lifetime. It's possible that I don't agree with everything he teaches... Continue reading

(Click to read more) There have been two times in my ministry, one years ago, and one about 6 years ago, that I had to stand before my congregation and tell them that I had been teaching them wrong things and that I was sincerely sorry for doing so. In case you've never been there, that is a very difficult thing for a pastor to do. We all know that we pastors have ALL the answers to every question! Right? NOT! At least I don't have all of the answers anymore! Continue reading

(Click to read more) Friends... No matter what you've been told and no matter how difficult the battle is that you are now involved in....GOD HAS NOT CURSED YOU! That means that nothing you have done, even while you were in complete rebellion to God, has prompted Him to place a curse on your life! You are NOT cursed, no matter what! Continue reading

(click to read more) Just for transparency sake, I used to consider myself a Charismatic and even a Pentecostal. I no longer do so! Since God has opened my eyes to the wonderful truths of New Covenant Grace, I now just consider myself a Christian. Or better yet, simply a Believer! Continue reading

(Click to read more) Do some abuse Grace? That question is about the same as, "Is the Pope Catholic?" By all means some abuse Grace! However, the key word here is, "some!" To say that the message of New Covenant Grace gives all of it's adherents a "license to sin" is just plain foolish! Continue reading

(Click to read more) If I asked every Christian that I meet over the next week, "Do you understand grace?" They will all shout back to me, "CERTAINLY!" After all, everyone knows (with their mind) that grace is, "God's unmerited favor." Every pastor was taught to teach that in their seminary "Grace 101" class. Like parrots they regurgitate what they have taught, teaching their flock the same wrong information. When the winds blow in life, "God's unmerited favor" just won't get the job done!

(Click to read more) I think that I often swim with the sharks too. But the sharks I'm talking about are probably more dangerous than that large bull shark was. The sharks I'm talking about are sharks of religion. Continue reading

(click to read more) Yet, the pain that Corinne and I felt for years was that of a great group of people that we loved without measure, being deceived to stay under a ministry of control, manipulation and religion. Later I discovered that so many "Black Churches" operate in that same fashion. Continue reading
