hate the sin

There are just so many problems with that idea I can't even try to begin! For example... right off the bat homosexuality, never mind homosexual activity, is a sin.But more than that, it attempts to draw a line between the person and his or her state of being, his or her life. It fragments the person, which is violence.What if heterosexuality was a sin? How could one say, "We love you as a person, but we hate heterosexual behavior, and we have no respect for your orientation as a … [Read more...]

Honestly, you can pretend to hear from God and it will work for you and for those you tell. More than that, you can actually believe you hear from God and that is even more powerful and convincing. You can believe anything you want and the world will rush in to substantiate it. We need to realize that this happens.Have you read Endo's "Silence"? If not, you should. It's a powerful and honest writing about the silence of God.This isn't to say I don't feel as though I've received direction or … [Read more...]

companionship in the storms

The rain does fall. The wind does blow. But at least we're together. And somehow this makes it not only easier, because it turns it into something that brings joy and makes me stronger. Even wiser.I'm glad you're with me. I know I could do it alone. I've done it before. I'll do it again. But you're with me now, and your presence brings me peace.We have no idea how long this storm will last.

some feel the rain

Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet. (Bob Marley) When I heard this beautiful little quote the other day it inspired me to paint another crow in the rain. This one is atop an old birch tree and the rain is falling straight down on him. Actually the crow is a huge spiritual symbol in my life. My love for them came first.It also caused me to become reflective and wonder how well I handle discomfort.Purchase the original painting, or purchase a print … [Read more...]

what i mean about miracles

Yesterday I wrote a hasty and blunt post to go along with a graphic cartoon of a girl in a wheelchair with a t-shirt that says, I believed in miracles. It received lots of attention and comments. On my other site, davidhayward.ca the comments are even more revealing and telling.But I owe an apology. My good wife Lisa, who is much wiser than I, pointed out to me that the post felt negative and seemed to denounce miracles and those who believe in them. She also wondered if I really said what I … [Read more...]

Todd Bentley and the UK

This is in reference to yesterday's story.Is Todd Bentley my brother? Yes! Am I his? Yes! Do I agree with him? No! Does he agree with me? Probably not, especially after this cartoon.But I imagine he and his team might actually like the cartoon... like, "Ya! Kick that ol' UK back to when it believed in God! It does need to be healed!" But the intent of this cartoon is slightly different, as in poking fun at his tactics, such as kicking his patients.Come join many of us over at … [Read more...]
