You can’t cancel sin. You may have done a whole bunch of good stuff, but if you’ve done one bad thing, that good stuff doesn’t cancel it out. And here’s the kicker – There will be NO SIN IN HEAVEN. Heaven is perfect, holy and pure. God is perfect, holy and pure. He will not dwell in the presence of sin. So, any person who has any sin in their life – which is each and every one of us since we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God – is disqualified for heaven. Because none of us can … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] You might call this discussion “One Daddy’s Lament.” Or to put an even finer point on it, “My Daddy’s Lament.” Or even “This Daddy’s Lament.” The “This Daddy” in that title referring to me. All if which I will explain in mere moments as you listen to this PODCAST. But for now, I don’t have to tell you that Jesus was a radical in every sense of that word. Jesus did things that were totally unexpected, unpredictable, unconventional. More to the point of this discussion, Jesus s … [Read more...]

Real Stuff My Dad Says 78: Who Do You Think You Are? (How Rachel Dolezal Impacts Your Family)

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] I remember so many times as a boy wanting to go somewhere, do something, wear something, or buy something that “everyone else” was doing. Peer pressure took up residency in our home in a big way for a number of years – as is the case in almost all homes with teenagers. My parents would say the perfunctory, “If Brian jumped off a bridge, would you?” (Sadly, I now find myself pulling this one out when flabbergasted by my own pre-teen) But, after the dust settled, the message m … [Read more...]

The first time sin happened was not in the Garden of Eden. The first time it happened was when Lucifer wanted to set his throne above the stars of God. God had made Lucifer His most beautiful creature, but Lucifer wasn’t happy being number two. Now, sin had never entered God’s creation before, and it shuttered when somebody said, “No” to God. So one third of the angelic host went with Satan, and all of creation shuttered. Sin is wanting to set your throne above the stars of God. So when God te … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 113: Stand Your Ground (What to Do, and What Not to Do)

Jesus in HD Thumbnail

[display_podcast] Welcome to one of the most practical and profitable passages in all of the Gospels. As you will hear in this PODCAST, Jesus’ words hit us right where we live. I mean, this goes right to the heart of who we are as Christ-followers, how we interact with our world, and how the world consequently perceives us. Given the positive responses of so many of the people at Safe Haven where this message was taught, I know that you will find this most helpful in your own Christian li … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 112: Alone, But NEVER Alone!

Jesus in HD Thumbnail

[display_podcast] So here’s my question: If you were Jesus, and you wanted to convey the idea in a way that no one could possibly miss, That you loved someone… That you cared about someone more than they could ever even begin to imagine… That you would be there for that person No. Matter. What… That in their loneliest moments, when they felt totally abandoned and isolated and detached from everyone, that you were still there… That your love and care and kindness towards that person would ne … [Read more...]
