Hello All!

It’s been a long time since I’ve written and honest to goodness post around here and for that I’d like to apologize, it’s just that sometimes life or what goes on in it consumes you. Things suck up all your time and soon you find yourself neglecting the sharing and edifying of others with God’s Word, the Devil likes it that way.

Well it’s time to work out!

That’s right…work out!

Tonight I’ll be breaking down two verses from Philippians 2 and getting down to what is and is not being said through them so let’s check them out!

12 So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now even more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to desire and to work out His good purpose.

Philippians 2:12-13 Holman Christian Standard Bible

Breakout the Workout!

Oh…my…those verses look a bit like erm…works right. Coming from a legalistic background whe work out just stands out but before we try to figure it out we need to note something. Verse 12 starts with the words: “So then…” and those words are very much like “Therefore…” “Since…” or “Because of…”. The first question to ask when confronted with a there fore is…what is it there for!

Later this year we’ll be releasing the Premiere Episode of The Bible Runners!

Preparing The World

Right now I’m currently preparing character biographies for the major characters in the Bible Runners universe. At the same time we have to find a talented team of voice actors to bring the characters to life, my friend and Brother in Christ Jack Dauer of the Iceberg Lounge Podcast is helping with that. I’ve also started working on the script for the pilot episode, in which we’ll gently ease you into the world that I’ve been creating over the past 20 years.

However this is a world that you will not be able to look at after all podcasts do not feature video at all. So the first question I had to ask when in the conceptual stage for the podcast was: how can I bring the world to live visually if the listener can’t see it?

Hello Folks!

Sorry it’s been a while since my last post, as usual thing have been surprisingly busy, however today’s post couldn’t wait another day. I say this because coming up tomorrow it would be really helpful to understand the ins and outs of being a good Christian sports-fan! (Note that this can and should be applied to all sports including those featuring individual athletes).

Diagram This Out

I LOVE football! I don’t know why you call it football when you use your hands most of the time, but then calling it handball is right out! (For what it’s worth the British term for “American Football” GRIDIRON is totally awesome! Back on point I love teams playing great football, I love the Seahawks playing exceptional football, but I love my 49ers more!

I’ve been a 49er fan since the early 80’s, my first football on the telly was 49ers vs. the Raiders and it wasn’t even close. I loved the 49ers intensity and passion- I loved that they wore the color red- it always reminds me of the blood that poured from my Savior to wash my sins whiter than snow! And I’ve been a fan ever since, through lean years, through the almost there years, and now we’re back at the top of our game it’s an exciting time to be a 49er fan- just as it is right now to be a Seahawks, Patriots or Broncos fan.

Tomorrow I’m going to be enjoying the first church service (at the Packinghouse we’re going through Romans!) and then making my way to an awesome local sports bar (The Upper Deck Sports Lounge at Pharaoh’s Lost Kingdom in Redlands CA.) for both games. (What you’re about to read also applies to those watching the games at home also). There will be passionate fans there for all the teams, and there is nothing wrong with being passionate in the support of your team but you need to keep a few things in mind- some Biblical things.

An Introduction

Hello everyone!

Allow me to thank everyone who has continued to visit this blog especially during this extended time of me just being overwhelmed from all angles and just not getting around to posting much at all. That said the times of me posting not much at all look to be in the rear view mirror. Today I will be sharing the first of a series of planned articles on The Christian Walk. This series will be a guidebook to the life we have in Christ, and how there’s the opportunity for spiritual growth beyond simply being saved.

Over the next few weeks you’ll also see new posts continuing two other series that have been on hiatus. The Inductive Study of the Gospel of John  our verse by verse study through the Gospel of John and Project 3:16 our look (in context) at the passages located around every 3:16 in the Bible.

In The Beginning of The Christian Walk

The beginning of the Christian Walk starts when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, to see what that’s all about (and it’s very important that you do) feel free to visit this page: Finding Salvation in Jesus Christ!

This Salvation is a one time non-repeatable event, in this way it is similar to the event that enables us to be saved, the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Being Born Again (Born from Heaven or Above) is not something that you can do for yourself, it is God the Father sealing and filling you with God the Holy Spirit as a gift in response to you accepting the gift He gave you of His only begotten Son on the cross in your place.
