The Hard Things



I've seen so much of it lately that it's making me nauseous.



"Karma will get them"
"(-----) is my spirit animal"
"What was I in my past life?" -- take this quiz to find out



These seemingly harmless activities are being done by those professing to be Christians.

I'm here to tell you that it's wrong. It's a dangerous game you're playing.

The truth of the matter is these are not activities that Christians should be participating in, even in jest. Even in the form of a game or a quiz. This is how the enemy works. This is how deception begins. If you think this is harmless or okay to do you are being deceived.

Karma is rooted in Hinduism and Buddhism. The main idea of karma is that a person's actions in this and previous states of existence are viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.

For Christ followers who regard the Bible as truth this is not something we should be participating in. Even saying, "Karma will get you" is aligning yourself with Hinduism and Buddhism which are false teachings.

Hebrews 9:27 tells us " it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement." (KJV)

We live once and we die once. Which also means all the "What was I in a previous life?" quizzes that some participate in on Facebook are nothing more than a foolish waste of time. Why meddle with these types of things? They are not of God.

The "spirit animal" quizzes are based in pagan religions. The idea is to show similar traits between you and an animal so you can learn what you're supposed to be like and how to use your spiritual animal as guidance. 

Um, what? Did you read that? Use an animal as guidance? 

The only thing we are to use as guidance is God's word and His spirit living inside of us. Avoid these things. These are not harmless games. This is serious stuff and you are being led astray. As quickly as this world is falling apart we (Christ followers) need to be on our guard against these things. 

Stand firm in your faith. Don't waver. Don't be deceived.

We are to be different for a reason.

The world is watching, be the light.

  1. Good Word today! There are many books, sites, and "spiritual gurus" that appear to be Biblical in content. When one begins to dig into their beliefs it is uncovered to be worship of angels, witchcraft, and humanism. Often Christians follow celebrities who adhere to certain views. We have to be on guard to keep our worship of God....and God alone! Anything else is idolatry!

Small Changes: Peanut Butter and Jelly

I eat the same thing for breakfast every single day. Most people think it's weird, I just think of it as fuel to get my day started. I was never big on cereal, mostly because I don't like milk. Other than a little splash of it in my tea I don't drink it.

I start my day with an organic brown rice cake with peanut butter and jelly on it. It works for me. The peanut butter provides protein and the jelly provides the yum.

I prefer the Lundberg Farms brown rice cakes. Brown rice is a good carb, white rice is a bad carb. White rice has no nutritional value and turns to sugar in your system. Brown rice is a whole grain and is a much better choice. 
I get the lightly salted ones. I find these in the organic food section of my favorite grocery store.

Now, let's look at some peanut butter and jelly. For the peanut butter I just chose Skippy because it's a brand that everyone is familiar with. I prefer the natural peanut butters, but if you don't like the texture of them and …

It's Not A Blessing if you Had to Sin to Get it

Pretty strong words but also very true. I once heard a man say his girlfriend was, "A gift from God." 

Except she wasn't because she was still married to someone else. Glenn wiggled in and turned her head and snatched her away from her husband and children.

How dare he think God had anything to do with that.

He doesn't work that way. If you want His blessings then you need to walk closely with Him. He will never bless sin. He can't. He is unable to. Sin is what separates us from God. 

Glenn may think he is living a blessed life as he runs on emotions and feelings but nothing like this will prosper. In the end it will lead to destruction. 

It already has. The family he destroyed will never be the same. 







Small Changes: Shredded Cheese

Today we're not just talking cheese, we're talking shredded cheese. This is the time of year when everyone has a party or picnic to go to, and most of the time you need to bring a dish of some kind. Many of these dishes call for cheese.

Sidenote: I'm so in love with cheese that I have to restrict it from my diet 99% of the time. I cannot be trusted with the creamy goodness that is cheese. Colby. Cheddar. Mozzarella. Gouda. Gorgonzola. Monterey Jack. Cream. Pepper Jack. Sigh. I love cheese, but it does not love me. It tempts me ever so. Today at lunch I splurged and order chicken parm. I only ate about half of it and that should last me several months. My body works much better when I stay away from cheese and dairy in general. Though, surprisingly, ice cream does not affect me in a bad way. Hmmmm.....

Anyway, back to cheese. Many recipes call for shredded cheese and the food industry has listened and provided a myriad of choices in the shredded cheese department and they hav…
