Music is so “dumbed down” today

Music is so “dumbed down” today

It is hard to write relevant music that can be enjoyed by all ages when mainstream music has been so dumbed down that it accepts and embraces absolute mediocrity. Featured recently on Shazam was an up and coming artist named “Big Sean” (signed by Kanye West) who starts off his set with this song: Just […]

Just venting out loud…

Just venting out loud…

We live in a country where adultery is legal, abortion is legal, dishonoring your parents is legal, being an atheist is legal, divorce is legal, being a homosexual is legal, eating pork is legal, not honoring the sabbath is legal, using the Lord’s name in vain is legal, letting cattle graze with other kinds of […]

Carmageddon came and went and the world is still spinning…

Proverbs 21:31 – Do your best, prepare for the worst – then trust God to bring victory.

I may have to turn in my “Liberal card” soon…

I consider myself a moderate, politically, but siding more on the liberal side than the conservative. But, the more I get into discussions with ultra-liberal folks, the more I start feeling like an idiot. A brief Facebook discussion ensued this evening on the issue of Florida requiring drug tests of welfare recipients. To me, this […]

CNN keeps focus on the hard-hitting news that counts

CNN keeps focus on the hard-hitting news that counts

I’m not sure what I would do if I could not get the news that Jennifer Aniston’s dog died.

How God Speaks

How God Speaks

I was in a recent church small group that asked the question: “how do you hear God?” I suggested that I have heard God in my subconscience and, also, while reading the Word… where Scripture would seem to be answering a life situation at the right time when I needed it. But, today, I experienced […]

Our sinful nature…

Our sinful nature…

Last night, I read the news that Cincinnati Red pitcher, Mike Leake, was caught shoplifting a few t-shirts (total value = $60). The 23-year old kid makes over $400,000 a year. It just goes to show that we cannot get passed our sinful nature, even when it makes no sense.

Trip to Descanso Gardens Starts Off On Wrong Foot

Trip to Descanso Gardens Starts Off On Wrong Foot

Well, God forgive us. We went back to the car, put the tripod in the trunk, and stuffed the SLR into our backpack. And, when I walked back up to buy the tickets for my in-laws, the same young lady asked me: “Is the camera in that backpack?”

The “Princess Diana” Bible: walking the fine line between clever and stupid

The “Princess Diana” Bible: walking the fine line between clever and stupid

There’s an unknown filmmaker in New Mexico who has come up with an interesting idea to promote his independent film about “two bio-geneticists whose Formula 4708 reverses the whole world’s sexual orientation.” He is in the process of writing what he calls the “Princess Diana Bible,” so named because of her many “good works.” It […]

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.

God is cool like that.
