Andy Stanley and the 7000 Who Have Bowed Their Knees

According to the Christian Post, over 7000 leaders have gathered at Catalyst Atlanta with Andy Stanley. That’s 7000 leaders who have bowed their knees to the spirit of oneness, a false spirit masquerading as the Holy Spirit. Stanley paraphrased the prayer of Jesus in this way:”Father, I pray that they will all be in oneness … Continue reading

Humanity’s Futile Attempt to Regain Paradise

The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be.  Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us.  There is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height.  We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries. … Continue reading

The prophesy of Zechariah concerning the coming messiah is another evidence to the world that the Christian faith is the truth and that the Bible is a supernatural book. Here is the scripture written over 500 years before Christ by the prophet Zechariah: Clean Garments for the High Priest (Chapter 3) 1 Then he showed me … Continue reading

“Spotlight” Puts Spotlight on Catholic Priests and Pedophilia

My husband and I watched the Oscar-nominated film Spotlight for our anniversary. It shared the true story of how the “spotlight” crew of the Boston Globe exposed the scandal of  the  sexual abuse of children by the Catholic priesthood. The reporters were also able to prove that Boston’s Cardinal Law knew it was going on, yet did … Continue reading

God and the Scientific Revolution

The Scientific Revolution was a direct consequence of the Protestant Reformation. While some would argue that it was the result of the Enlightenment, the truth is that the Enlightenment was a direct consequence of the revolution in science caused by Christianity. This revolution wasn’t spontaneously generated. Like most revolutions it was birthed out of rebellion. The … Continue reading

My new book will be coming off the press sometime this summer. It’s a small book, under 100 pages, so it should be a quick read.

Why am I WAITING for “Shalom?”

"They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven . . ."
(1 Thessalonians 1:9b-10a)

The word "shalom" in the Hebrew has many meanings which indicate restoration, renewal, friendship, peace, safety and so on. At one time, God placed his creation in a perfect garden--a place of safety, security, provision and peace--and we disobeyed God, losing 1) our relationship with God and 2) paradise.

Since that time, we've attempted to bring back both of these losses in our own way. Religion is our attempt to gain back our relationship with God, and politics is our attempt to gain back paradise.

The solution to both of these losses is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Yet the world refuses to believe the good news! Instead they try to attain the restoration--the shalom--in their own way through their own effort.

I believe that the kingdom of God is restored in the hearts of men as they receive Christ's finished work, but the kingdom of God doesn't come physically to earth until Christ comes.

Any effort to bring about the promise ahead of time in our own strength is akin to Abraham going to Hagar for fulfillment of the promise instead of waiting with Sarah for the birth of the promised child through whom the nations of the earth would be blessed.

The evangelical church is rushing en masse to bring about shalom through their own effort, power, and influence. Men like Bill Hybels, Rick Warren, Jim Wallis, and Donald Miller are losing their faith in the promise of Christ that he would prepare a place for them and they're attempting to restore paradise now.

I want to let it be known that I'm WAITING for shalom. I won't be a part of their dream. They are moving ahead of God rather than waiting on God and they will create another Ishmael as a result.
