Religion & Spirituality examines how humans try to reach God with or without Christ (religion), and the awareness one has regarding life and spiritual things (spirituality). Being religious or spiritual does not necessarily mean being godly.

What Am I Supposed To Do?

A pathway on the left near a small autumn glen. Vibrant and varied colored fall leaves are seen on the trees and bushes to the right, with small spaces in the tree tops revealing a clear blue sky.

There are times in life when I wonder, “What am I supposed to do?” I’m sure that every one of us has asked that same question. Life Happens I’ve been dealing recently with a LOT of moving parts in my

Deception – Part 2

A forest scene in autumn. A tree trunk is in the right foreground with a sunburst peeking around the right side of the trunk, and multi-colored leaves scattered throughout the background.

I have a tendency as a Christian, and that tendency is shared by most every other Christian, too. I have a habit of viewing unbelievers as being deceived. The problem is that I, too, might be subject to deception. Deception

Is God all-powerful?

Three white marble statues on black marble pedestals representing Jesus being baptized by John the Baptist, with an angel looking on.

I read an honest question on Facebook recently and it deserves to be answered. In fact, many people (Christians included) have the same question. Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything He wants to do? The Bible – Foundation of

Tough Choices

Looking up through a metal grill work at the blue sky above. There are spokes in the grill work, with concentric rings encircling the center of the spokes, and white clouds can be seen in the sky above.

I have found that life is full of tough choices. I’m sure you have, too! But what do I mean when I say tough choices? Tough Choices Where should I go to school? That can be tricky. What job should

Lessons From Las Vegas

View from the top of a mountain, with spruce and pine trees covering the landscape. You look out across a valley to distant mountain tops. There is a dead tree in the right foreground, with a pine tree in the left foreground.

Learn From the Past

A classroom setting viewed from the back of the room. An instructor is standing at the front of the room with about a dozen older adults seated in chair facing her. Light is coming in from open windows on the left side of the room, illuminating the red furniture upholstery and stone walls of the interior.

I see news reports of things happening in the world and those reports continue to seem eerily familiar. Have you noticed that, too? Wars, riots, starvation, and such, all provide a sense of deja vu.  They have been a part

A multi-colored sunset with clouds of various hues.

I’m currently in a season of learning how to deal with frustration. I’m frustrated with my finances. I’m frustrated with family. I’m frustrated with my house. I’m frustrated with unbelievers. I’m frustrated with my wife. I’m frustrated with this blog

Give Up, Not Give In

An outdoor stone Sundial, with aged bronze face, is set against a brick walkway background.

Do you ever have the feeling that things aren’t going the way you want or expect them to go? I know I do, and it’s very frustrating. Do you ever face the temptation to give up because of that frustration?
