Genetic Pride I’ve been pretty clear that the Bible is pretty clear that God hates pride in humanity. Detests it, in fact. What is meant by pride is worth consideration, though. God doesn’t mind a parent being proud of their child in the school play, or bringing home an A. We can be proud of a hard day’s work, coming home worn out and satisfied at a job well-done. The kind of pride God hates is pride that is not earned… Read more

Sounding the Charge In my class on Culture War Christianity I start the first day by challenging my students with the statement that most of them are probably in direct disobedience to Christ by allowing themselves to be silenced for the sake of peace. We do this with family, we do it with friends, we do it on social media, we do it everywhere. Convinced it is enough that we know the truth, we are willing to lay down our swords… Read more

If you’ve been reading Tim To Get Right for any length of time you’ve probably picked up on one of my biggest pet peeves: gossip, slander, ignorance spreading untruths. As you can imagine, someone with this kind of pet peeve has a heck of a time in today’s society, which is positively filled with lies, slander and the spreading of untruths in ignorance. One person picks up a newspaper – reads a lie, and begins spouting to all of their… Read more

Submission is Half the Battle Some of the most controversial bits of Christian Scripture – especially to the unsaved world – are those which tell wives to submit to their husbands as unto the Lord. Well I have good news for you ladies offended by submission: Your husband is given a much more difficult task which includes putting you first. A form of submission. Ephesians 5:22 says “Wives, submit to your own husbands as unto the Lord.  Likewise Colossians 3:18 says… Read more

Modified Christians In this age of intersectionality, identity politics, and a certain segment of society dividing everyone into groups, I have noticed a disturbing trend of some starting to consider themselves modified Christians. What is a modified Christian, you ask? A Black Christian. An American Christian. A Republican Christian. A Socialist Christian. A Gay Christian. etc… Leaving aside for the moment that two of the above are generally a contradiction in terms, a modified Christian is someone who allows a… Read more

I Am Who I Am   “It’s natural because the animals do it.” “I was born this way and God doesn’t make mistakes.” If the way you were born is the way God meant you to be, why did Jesus insist “you must be born again.”?  Why is the Christian walk about all of us – every human on Earth – needing to be born again?   You Are Not All That Let me be blunt: the Christian faith is… Read more

What is Love? Of all the commands handed down by God and Jesus Christ to man, there is clearly one that is the most difficult – hands down – to fulfill.  It isn’t to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and strength;”Luke 10:27. The greatest commandment, according to Christ, but the second, which he said is like the first: that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves.  Anyone can devote their lives to God and give all of their… Read more

Not All Are Equal Just for kicks, let’s explore how the Son of God handles wages and employment. First, my thesis statement: No Jesus is not a proponent of “share the wealth” or “equal pay for equal work” or any other progressive equality-of-outcome ideal.  In His own words He often described the Kingdom of Heaven using a parable with vastly different outcomes for individuals in the story. Let’s break one of these parables down.  Matthew 20  Matthew 20 begins with a parable,… Read more

Dear Christian: STOP LYING!  “There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,” ~Proverbs 6:16-17a    The Bible makes it clear throughout Scripture that God hates lies and the spreading of untruths. Whether it is called gossip, slander, or straight-up lying; spreading or spawning an untruth is something God despises. In fact, the above scripture from Proverbs goes on and in the list of six things that the Lord hates, a… Read more

Quid es Veritas? Who am I, why am I blogging, and why should you care? Seems like an appropriate set of questions to answer, not only as my first blog post but also as (hopefully) an introduction for all future visitors to this blog. It is here that I intend to lay down some truth and my purpose from day one. Truth Truth…veritas in Latin. The words “quid es veritas” were literally spoken by Pontius Pilate to Jesus Christ in… Read more
