Rules of the Road

Do you follow the all rules of the road when driving?  If so, do you follow them all the time? or only when a police officer is around? Can I be honest?  I don’t.  I know I should, but as the ride progresses, my speed increases; when there is no one on the road I […]

Rules of Order

Did you ever stop to think about why God gave the Torah to the Israelites? Or contemplate when He gave it?  I don’t mean when, as to a date, but in what circumstances? I’ve often heard it said, “The law was given so we can know how sinful we are.” Thinking about the ‘when’ of […]

Don’t Open That Door!

Sometimes, when reading the word of God, I feel like I’m watching a horror movie.  You know, the kind where you see one of the characters about to go into the room hiding the psychotic killer?  You scream at the screen, “Don’t open that door!” But it’s no good. She opens the door and meets […]

Three Kinds of Cats in the World

I have three cats that I kept praying would all get along.  God basically said, “No.”  Now I understand why – there was a lesson to be learned in how they behave. Two of the cats – Nick and Milshean – are extremely faithful, loving kitties.  But they don’t get along with each other. Milshean […]

What’s So Special About The Torah?

Do you know what makes the Word of God different from all other ancient writings?  And why it is important to understand this difference? I heard a teaching yesterday that intrigued me. It focused on the various ways the gospel of Matthew whispers of Jesus being a prophet like Moses, and how this would sound […]

It Is Finished

On the cross, as Jesus breathed his last, he proclaimed, “It is finished.” What was finished? Many believe it was the law that was finished.  But is that true?  If so, why did his followers, even after the giving of the Holy Spirit that illuminated the Scriptures for them, still practice Judaism? So I had […]
