Imposing our Christian beliefs upon non-believers

Imposing Ideas

One very common argument I hear in opposition of Christianity is that Christians “impose” their beliefs upon others.  Is this true?  Are we even suppose to impose our morals upon others? Should we be quiet instead out of respect to their freedom to not believe?

Google Plus and Google Plus Hangouts

Google+ Hangout Logo

Google’s social media platform, Google Plus, has been slow-growing for me and still has some improvements to be made before I feel it would replace Facebook as the #1 social media platform.  Like many Google products, some of the ways of doing things aren’t as self-explanatory as I’d like to see them be and even quite complicated at times, but Google+ has great potential and continues climbing in popularity and threat to Facebook.

Following Difficult Church Leadership

Submission

Leadership is a necessity in our day-to-day lives as well as in our spiritual communities.  Our authorities are there to guide us, teach us, and to try and keep us safe by instructing us on what’s best for us.  And when we have great leaders that lead the way we think they should and that aligns with what we feel they should be doing, we have very little issue (if any at all) with following them and submitting to them.

Details regarding King Herod’s Temple in the days of Jesus

I recently decided to do some research on what the setting was like at the temple in the days of Jesus Christ.  What surprised me is how difficult it was for me to find any good illustrations explaining where Jesus and His disciples would’ve met at within the temple and/or what temple worship was like in those days.

I’m saved, so now what?

For a while now, I’ve realized there has been something missing from modern day Christianity.  When Mercy’s Cross Church in Sherwood, AR made the transition to ThatChurch.com on 10-10-10 (See videos 101010 Anniversary and 101010 Scott’s Message), senior pastor Scott Harness cast a new vision for the church and one aspect of it was a new small group model.  They are called “Empower Groups” and instead of being “social groups”, they were instead focused on discipleship.
This was something I realized was HUGELY needed and lacking since churches tend to focus on one thing; reaching the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

From Darkness to Light – loosing my mom

Mom's beautiful eyes

I have been off the map for a little while now, so much has happened.
The most life-changing of those would be my mom’s death, which took place November 23, 2011 at 12:05PM, the day before Thanksgiving.
She died at the age of 54 from very aggressive breast cancer that metastasized all over her body (to put it short), only 5 days after I made it back to Arkansas to see her.  The finality of her death brought an unexpected peace to us all since we had spent day-after-day uncertain of what each day would bring, but that was only momentary.
