Slogans and Creeds

“Ba dad ba da da I’m lovin it!”  Surely, you all are familiar with the famous Mcdonald’s slogan?  Or how about, “Have it your way” ? I can definitely appreciate a whopper from Burger King.  We have all kinds of slogans, jingles, and catcphrases that run rampant through our mind throughout the day.

D-Day. This day, June 6, 1944 was the turning point of WWII. 2,500 Americans were killed.  A call to arms was made to the small community of Bedford, Virginia.  There was 20 deaths, with 19 deaths from one company. 35 total soldiers from Bedford in total including the National Guard.  Imagine the phone operator gettingContinue reading “[D]ecision Day”

“This Is Just My Face”

Once upon a time, I was a moody teenager. I walked around with the posture of a chimpanzee and an unintentional scowl that reeked of forlorn boredom.  Although I am more aware now of my face’s pitiful pose, I realize that the look on my face was not an indicator of my salvation. Although, itContinue reading ““This Is Just My Face””

A Sincere Lie

A Sincere Lie I have once heard it said, “It doesn’t matter what you believe just so long as you’re sincere”.  Scratch that.  I have heard an innumerable amount of times that, “It doesn’t matter what you believe just so long as you’re sincere”.  Each time this phrase slithers off of a Christian’s tongue, myContinue reading “A Sincere Lie”

The Big Protest

Polls have estimated that roughly 15 million people in the United States participated in some sort of protest in the year 2020. But the purpose of this devotion is not about that.  I want to talk about the big protest. I am speaking about when God protested against sin. How did God do this youContinue reading “The Big Protest”
