Choose Wisely My Friend…

I have lost count on the people I have heard about that have been betrayed, or emotionally hurt by other people, which includes friends, business partners, a spouse, and Christian leaders. Some have asked me how do you know if someone is reliable, honest, or not a “false prophet.” Well, first of all we all make mistakes and are capable of falling into an error of our ways. However, my typical recommendations come from my own experiences, knowledge, and, of course, the bible. Here is some of my advice and my recommendations:

~ “FOOLS RUSH IN”:

Do not confuse obsession or chemistry for love. True love will persevere the test of time and adversity. Date a person of like faith, goals and passions.(“Be equally yoked”). Men look for a Proverbs 31 woman. Women look for a true man of faith, and virtue. However, what is love? (I now here the song by Haddaway, “What is love” ; D ). Do you want to know what love is? (now I hear the song by Foreigner, “I want to know what love is” ; D ). Well the bible does describe/define what love is in 1 Corinthians 13:4–7Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

~ CHOOSE YOUR INNER CIRCLES WISELY:

It is said and known that you become the average of your 5 closest friends. If this is true, which I believe and know it to be true, I would choose wisely. You don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of. Proverbs 12:26:The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.”, Proverbs 27:17:As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”, Proverbs 13:20: “Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.”, Proverbs 18:24: “One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

~ CHOOSE PARTNERS WISELY:

I have owned several business and have been involved in having “partners” in such endeavors. I have learned that you must treat a partnership in a near marriage fashion. What I mean about that is that the honesty, integrity, like mindedness, and passion similarities need to be present. And if you are not wise in your choices, it can be financially, emotionally, and mentally damaging similar to many divorces. If you can succeed in your goals and objectives without a Partnership, I would do it alone and eventually grow in to a S-Corp or C-Corp and then hire the talent you need to grow, and advance, and/or leverage a low interest loan that you can manage and pay back quickly.

~ BEWARE OF UNSOUND TEACHING:

The bible is rather clear of being careful of following unwise leadership, to identify and call out False Prophets. “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.” — Matthew 7:15–20. See also Deuteronomy 13.

So how do you do that? What are their “fruits”. In otherwise do they walk their talk? Are they consistent in their daily each day of the week as they are on Sunday, class, the boardroom, or from the pulpit? So what are these “fruits”, characteristics, or character traits? You may find an explanation of what is called “The Fruits of the Spirit” in this article: https://bromartin.medium.com/are-you-fruity-e2592d1395aa which are Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance (Patience), Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control.

In addition, if you attend a church that is not biblically sound, does not speak, teach the truths of the bible, then that is not a true church. Here is another summary of “7 signs” that you may want to consider if it may be time to address it, help to change it, or move on: https://bromartin.medium.com/7-signs-that-it-may-be-time-to-respectfully-address-your-church-or-your-pastor-5c97f427d47e

Simply be authentic, real, genuine, love God, love people, and live on Mission.

Not all will agree with what I am about to post… I sincerely enjoy attending church & as a Christian I believe the Holy Spirit encourages us to do so. I never want to miss an opportunity to be in church. To assemble together, build into relationships, to worship, serve, learn, grow, get equipped & go out. I find it is also biblical.

However, a church was never mean to be a museum for saints, fancy artifacts, or expensive dramatic light shows. It is a hospital for sinners for healing, rehabilitation, repentance, recovery & growing in the name of Jesus. Besides the church is not a building, the church are the people & you can gather anywhere, whether in a building, on the street corner, on a motorcycle, or park bench. To any church out there that would ever turn away a soul because of appearance, finances, brokenness, addictions, alcoholism… is not a church, nor the church. You are doing it wrong, & need a true church. Remember, Christ re-named Simon to Peter, the rock, to whom He would build the church. Peter had flaws, made mistakes, he was human, just as all of us.

Keep in mind that no church is perfect and if you have been offended by someone in a church, welcome to the club, so have I. Honest people, with integrity, know they are fallible, and make error. This is another reason they attend, seek to improve, learn, grow, get equipped and go out.

However, words of advice and caution…If church leaders are per-occupied with numbers, money, a certain look, consistently speaking against other denominations, or always preaching a Prosperity Message & spending thousands to possibly millions on fancy dramatic shows, or costly buildings, while the congregation is suffering and there are homeless starving on the streets in their community, that is not about Christ, nor a true church, or the rock in which Christ spoke. If your focus is this way, you must be reading a different bible than I am.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the entertainment side, contemporary music, and different “wrappers” of a church & how it is to be presented, especially in today’s time. However, a good church, and church message, must be biblically sound and Christ centered.

Simply preach the truth, even when it is hard, as there is a Heaven & a Hell. The truth must be spoken. Simply be authentic, real, genuine, love God, love people, and live on Mission. Keep the main thing the main thing. Plant the seeds, let the Holy Spirit help water it, and souls will be saved, lives changed, and your church will grow be it God’s will…

I also believe the “luke warm” spoken in the bible may be more about frauds, fakes, and posers. Be real, church people, God always knows your heart, intent and soul.

And before someone goes on a rant in a reply, I assure you I can provide plenty of scripture to support what I believe & know to be true.

The top 10 Characteristics and Qualities of an Effective Christian Motorcycle Club

This article is a 10 part series on The top 10 Characteristics and Qualities of an Effective Christian Motorcycle Club. Today we start with part one with number one:

1. Biblically Sound and Christ Centered

If you are going to Prospect for or become a Full Patched Brother in a Christian Motorcycle Club, it must be Biblically Sound and Christ Centered. The priorities should be God first, then Family, Work, then Club. This is not to say that these lines may not blur at times as the men in your MC become like family, sometimes even more than family. A MC also takes work, however anything worth while takes work, and anything worthwhile is worth working for.

Biblically Sound in my opinion and perspective doesn’t mean denominational stressed. Meaning, that a good Christian MC should be non-denominational. From the leadership down to the Hangaround, a Christian MC should exude biblical principles in not just words, but actions and deeds. The bible should be and needs to be the final authority. It is the Word of God.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17

As believers we are to be Christ centered. To be Christ centered we are to realize Christ is the head, the example on how we are to lead, serve and live.

And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.” – Ephesians 1:22-23

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” – Galatians 2:20

In addition, I believe any good Christian MC should have a Mission Bible Verse, similar to what some believers call a “Live Verse”. A favorite bible verse that exemplifies the MC’s mission and purpose.

God has created us as believers to play a unique role in our lives for the Kingdom. We each have a destiny that will bring glory to God, share the grace and love of Christ, and extend the Kingdom of God. Understanding your unique destiny starts with reading the bible, understanding what it says about your purpose as one of God’s people. So it should be with a Christian MC.

This article is a 10 part series on The top 10 Characteristics and Qualities of an Effective Christian Motorcycle Club. Today we started with number one, tomorrow we start with number two, “Structure and Expectations“.

Seek Approval or Affirmations…

Although I do not believe people should chase after the approval of mankind. I am an avid believer in Colossians 3:23, “Whatever you do, work at it with your whole being, for the Lord and not for men,” And overly desiring the praise of mankind can lead to vanity, envy, and often driven by ego. It can become a drive that leads to obsession and destruction. However, I do believe we all like sincere kudos, and the affirmations not just by people we love, respect, our earthly father, but by our Heavenly Father too. That is biblical as well. God did this audibly with Jesus, Matthew 3:17, “and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son,[a] with whom I am well pleased.”. Words of Affirmation is also a Love Language in which people provide and people receive to demonstrate their love, grow, and thrive. Although we are not to chase approval, we should give and receive sincere affirmations in love. Hebrews 10:24, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,”

If your children are doing well at anything, don’t hold back your affirmations upon them. Sincerely express them in words and actions. If your spouse does something that pleases you, let your spouse know. If a friend, or colleague, does something out of the way that is good, and honorable, please do not hold back sincere affirmations. This goes with just about anyone in person or online. If they share something, something wise, something profound, whether directed at you or not, let them know whether in actions or deeds, or simply smashing the like, or love button, and sharing it with others. And yes, by subscribing to their YouTube Channel or online blog.

These words and actions of affirmation is also sharing the light and salt to others. Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” It is also a demonstration on Whom you truly serve, John 13:35, “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

This type of love is good, and can be contagious. How about we all catch that? How about we make that go viral?

“I don’t tell people what I’m doing on Tuesday because it is a personal decision.”

I don’t tell people what I’m doing on Tuesday because it is a personal decision.

I recently read a fairly well known pastor of a large church write this in an article. I have also read another from another very well know preacher say Christians should not vote all together this election. These are not new “sayings” among people, whether a Pastor, or layman.

However, I do not entirely agree with it, nearly at all. I am not saying I am wiser, nor more educated than those that take this stand. To each his or her own. However I do have a few years on me, with a variety of experiences, as well as education.

I made a profession of faith 38 years ago, fully surrendered to that faith & began serving in Ministries 30 years ago if that gives me any credibility. Granted I’ve seen more “cautious” church leaders on staff make this statement, and prefer little to no conflict or to offend others, especially a congregation. However, I am not a strong believer on that stance either. The Gospel was not meant to “not offend” someone, it is truth & some people cannot handle the truth. Conviction of sin, can rattle folks, whether in a church or out of a church. Jesus offended many, so much, it caused the “religious” of that time to demand his crucifixion.

Ironically this same Pastor that wrote, “I don’t tell people what I’m doing on Tuesday because it is a personal decision.” has no problem preaching “no sex before marriage” while drinking a bourbon, or cracking open a beer right on the church stage. Or delivering a message that our words “can bring life or death” from (Proverbs 18:21) while speaking vulgarities at a campsite, or speaking of sex and masturbation during a church service, without letting parents of young children know not to have them in the main church in the attendance of 100 to thousands. Or confidentially preaching and teaching that “Men taking a minority position, even if they have to stand alone”… and yet state he will not share to whom he is voting for on Tuesday because it is a “personal decision.”

Now, please do not get me wrong, I am not condemning this Pastor for “hypocrisy”, or casting judgment. I am no one’s judge, besides some One has that job, and I surely do not want it. I also confess that I enjoy the occasional sip of fine bourbon, an occasional good cigar and my language isn’t necessarily pristine. I am also not a Pastor of a large church, or small church. However, I strive to be consistent in my message, my teachings, and the way I live my life. I stumble and fail, but thankful for grace and mercy God extends. To where I can ask for forgiveness, repent, learn, & strive to grow & improve each new day.

I believe the bible is the Word of God. All of it. The Old and New Testament. I believe we are to strive to be the Salt & the Light. To strive and do what we teach and preach. To not be double minded. (James 1:8) Do I fail? Do we fail? Yes. We all fail. However, my ego is not so large not to admit where I was wrong, ask for forgiveness, repent, learn from it, try to make it right, grow and improve.

I am also getting tired of Church Leaders and other Christians saying that Jesus didn’t get involved in politics, so we shouldn’t either. I want someone to show me where Jesus commanded not to be involved in politics, or be confident in whom they are voting for, and why? I am not absolutely sure those who state these things like these pastors wrote in their articles take the whole bible in it’s entirety in context. God certainly advised who should be King, and is King on earth and in Heaven. Heaven was also involved in politics before the creation of man. Satan arose to challenge God, gathering support of other angels, and of course lost.

In being the salt and light; being courageous and taking a stand. To do what is right and moral, even if is not popular, among the majority, even if you have to stand alone, should involve to whom you are voting, with confidence, brave and proud enough to share as to why, and encourage others to do the same, with, and in love. Never should politics cause caustic arguments, tearing down others, certainly not physical violence. We should, as mature Christian adults, be able to agree to disagree with grace and humility, and still love one another if we are not casting our vote for the same candidate.

What I prefer to see is pastor’s to stop with the “tippy-toe” words, theatrics, watered down messages, as not to offend the masses. Simply speak the truth, confidently, in love, even if that love has to be tough, and may offend some one, or many. After many seasons on this earth, I believe the reason things have gotten so worse, or to this level, is that people have taken God out of as many things as possible. To try to please as many as possible, especially those with the loudest mouths. Many have left their First Love in Christ, or distanced themselves out of fear of ridicule, or of “offending” some one. (Remember is written in Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”) Many churches have gotten soft, prefer to be entertainers, than feeding the sheep the truth. They have walked away from keeping the main thing the main thing to instead seek to entertain, build large buildings, have the best tech, and the highest numbers of attendance. If we want healing in this land. If we want revival, and the hearts of America to turn back to their First Love. For divisiveness to diminish, souls saved, morality increased, these 3 bible verses are a great way to begin:

if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” — 2 Chronicles 7:14

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” — Matthew 6:33

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound[a] teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,” — Timothy 4:3

If any of this offends you, that is not my problem. Scroll on, and move on. That is you and your emotional ability or level of EQ to deal with it. I speak what I believe is truth, with wisdom, and seek to do it in love, even if that love has to be tough. If you have a problem to where it nearly enrages you, maybe you need to adult up, or “man up.”

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.” — 1 Corinthians 16:13

And if voting to you is a “personal decision” don’t come complaining when your government takes 60% of your income for taxes, personal. Do not take it personal when your taxes pay for abortions up to birth. Don’t take it personal when your government dictates when and where you work, go to church, what you may wear out in public, or speak in public or online…. Don’t take it personal when your freedoms and liberties diminish and your country which was built on freedom and the lives that were scarified to create it, defend and protect it.

I believe real men can take a minority position, and should if it is just, moral, sound.

Courage, resilience, perseverance, diligence, determination are all admirable words, but how many truly understand them or apply them. As I type this post which many also appear on my blog, it may sound brave to type it out and write this, but the effort of my fingers is minor, real courage comes from living it. Have you took a stand in what you truly believe is right, moral and sound, even if you stand alone? Oh it may be easy if a large crowd or even a “mob” goes along with you, but what if you are in the minority? I believe real men can take a minority position, and should if it is just, moral, sound.


Personally I have experienced being alone in my perspective, and what I truly believed was just, moral and sound and it has cost me. No, these were not unlawful acts, they were not acts of malice, against established rules or regulations, nor of inappropriate judgement.


I have been passed up for promotions to the point I was told I didn’t get the job because of my faith, or I didn’t go along with certain actions and activities that were against my convictions within my faith.


Even within “Christian” circles, I even told by an “church leader” that I was too much of a “Wild Card” because, I spoke truth one to one even though I followed Matthew 18:15-18. Or that I spoke too boldly, or was called to lead without this particular’s leader’s knowledge. Even though I have led countless ministries, been to seminary, and the Mission Field. I was then asked if I thought I was Jesus. My answer was, certainly not, but aren’t we all to strive to live and lead like Jesus, and He was considered an outlaw by the “religious” of that time. Later within that same church, a friend was asked to dismiss himself from a service because he said “amen” too often to a message and that he may be being “too religious” for the rest of the attendees. I no longer attend or support that “church.”


I have been told by a leader of a Christian organization that I should “go with the flow” even though it was against the guidelines, sound doctrine, or against biblical principles. I answered, Jesus was not one to “go with the flow” that was against His Father’s business. I was labeled a “rebel”.


I have been told by other entities to accept certain concepts or movements that were against family values, and constitutional rights as to please the masses. I said no, that I cannot rightly support that.


I have been threatened to accept and support things, activities or movements that go against my faith, family values, and sanctity of life or face expulsion, or possible termination. I said no, that I cannot rightly support that. I was never promoted again.
I was told by a “church” that mental illness is due to lack or faith or demonic possession. I spoke openly, with authority of education in the field, and the bible, that was wrong and that he just offended, and insulted the faith of, on average, 20% of his congregation.
I have had a church leader ask me to help remove a homeless person that smelled of liquor from the church. I said, “no”, let’s feed him, get him a hotel room, and connect him with some social services.


I have heard preachers preach that most all other regions and denominations are not of God and should not be accepted. I did not agree, and was told, “tough”, find another church.


I have been denied passages on a trip even though I purchased a ticket because I was “too Christian”, or asked to move to another table in an establishment because my family and I prayer before our meals.


I have been asked to remove rings, and necklaces because they were “too religious” or “not appropriate” or asked to remove a Motorcycle Club vest because it was “gang oriented” even though it was a Christian Motorcycle Club. In all instances I did not remove these items, an at one point escorted off the premises.


The list goes on…


You may be saying this can’t be, some of this must be when you were no in America, or on the Mission Field in a foreign country. Nope, this is all while residing in the USA.
The thing is that something you ardently believe in may cost you something. It may cost you a promotion. It may cost you money. It may cost you friends and yes, even family. In the bible, it cost almost every believer example something, and for some it cost them their lives.


As for me, I am willing to take a stand, even if I have to stand alone, because as for me and my house we will serve the Lord, as our work is unto the Lord and not man. (Joshua 24:15, Colossians 3:23-24)


Yes, I believe real men can, and should take a minority position for what they ardently believe in. To stand for what is true, moral and sound. It may not be easy, it may not be “fun”, it may cost a man something, but what does it truly cost in the big picture? What does it cost in the scope of eternity? What will it cost our children and their children if we do not stand?


Take hold of Courage, demonstrate bravery, do not only leave a legacy, live it.


“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13

How Many Have Truly Heard?…

I think many people have heard The Gospel or a variation of it. However, how many have truly heard it in ways they understand as it relates to them?


I ponder this as I think of both the people I have passed by or met and not shared it, or I shared it in a way they could not understand or accept it.


I sometimes get criticized by the way I dress during my casual hours, or among my friends in the Biker Community. I also get criticized by the types of music I listen to, or the places I hang out. For those that criticize they may not truly understand that the presentation of the truth is more important that wrapper in which it is delivered.
You see there are many who have heard the gospel, but hurt by the organization that presented it. Whether it was by unnecessary judgement, such as the way they look, talk, or dress. They may have been judged because of their vices, mistakes, or even being divorced. There have been people who also see Christianity as a tool for division, and yes, even war, as many wars were started or fought over both land and religion.


There is an old saying, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do” I do not necessarily believe you do as the Romans, but you may certainly be more tolerated or accepted if you dress and speak more like them. Trust me in what I say that many of those turned off by the church, may know a whole lot more about the bible than those in the church. Never make the mistake of thinking otherwise. Walk alongside of them, speak in terms that are understood by them, in an empathetic, non-judgemental way. Often, all you have to do to build trust, is to be an empathetic listener, and speak in a way they understand. Jesus did this in parables.


Jesus didn’t say don’t go into the bars, or back alleys. He didn’t say don’t go to those that look, speak, or talk differently than you do. He said,


“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”Matthew 28:18-20


So if and what I am criticized for the way I dress, or whom I may be around, or the areas I go into or ride, I say, “I seek the follow the example of The Beautiful Outlaw in Jesus Christ.” And He never looked upon the outward appearance, he looked upon the heart.

Somethings Make Me Cringe…

I am not going to name the “church” that make these signs and stand on street corners, but I cringe at their methods. To be honest, it angers me.


Allow me to preface that I am far from perfect. I confess I make mistakes, and fall into sin. I am thankful for a forgiving God to where I can repent, learn from my mistakes, and strive to improve. I am not making judgements, besides some ONE has that job, and I surely do not want it. However, I have never met anyone that came to a knowledge and understanding of Jesus by these abrasiveness, abusive, and basically caustic methods.


Granted, Jesus was direct at times, He even called the “religious” of that day, “Vipers”, and yes He turned over the tables of money changers in an aggressive manner at the temple, but I never read where he held up signs, screaming at people, or demonstrating a level of hate towards others living in sin. It was nearly the opposite to where he came alongside, spoke in terms they understood, and basically loved the hell out of others.


I do believe Jesus spoke with authority and confidence, but not out of hate, but that out of the love of God to be about His business. Even on the cross, suffering the ridicule, persecution, and eventually death, He said, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.”


I confess when I was a new Christian and attended a certain denomination of church, I was rather aggressive, and spoke rather directly, without first being empathetic. Without first putting myself in the other person(s) shoes to understand their walk, and circumstances. I regret it. However, after I sought wisdom from digging deeper into the bible and the life of Jesus, I strived to be more like Him, not like any man made denomination. To me it is truly about a relationship with Christ, and not religion. There is so much wisdom in the way Christ lived, taught, led and served. This is the example we are to follow, and not screaming hate, beating someone up side head with a sign or a bible. It’s about loving someone to an understanding not just in words, but in actions and deeds. The way you live your life, is as loud as a message as any.


I have a friend who has a t-shirt that reads:


“Be a man, live like Jesus”


To live like he did, as well as the many examples of the apostles, to me is, being a real man. A man after God’s own heart. I have been known to re-quote this quote often by Johnny Cash,

“Being a Christian isn’t for sissies, it takes a real man to live for God, more than to live for the devil.”


It’s not easy, in fact it is tough, but it is good. To me it is what is right, sound, and it is all to be done in love. And, yes, sometimes love has to be tough, but it is never hate.


So what is love? What Jesus did on the cross He did out of love. But what does the bible define as love, well here you go:


“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”1 Corinthians 13:4-7


Unfortunately, this particular church and it’s members seem to have forgotten this verse, or how to apply it.

Radical Alert

I have had people in & out of church say that I take my “faith too seriously.” Some have said I am kind of a “Wild Card“, or “Radical“, or “wear my faith on my sleeve.” I guess it could seem that way at times. However, I think it was “wild”, & “radical” that Jesus would suffer such a death on the cross for me.

Although I am not one to preach AT, certainly try never to judge, I am, however, someone to teach & empathetically preach truth with love. I am a believer that Christians shouldn’t separate their faith from who they are. It causes double mindedness. It’s not about being a Christian just on Sunday. It’s about a way of life every day. And your actions and deeds, can speak more profoundly than mere words.

I also think there are some things wrong with a church that prefers to please the masses, afraid to “offend” others. Those churches that prefer to be mass marketers, count numbers, financial campaigns, and driven to be more of an Entertainment Hall & Social Club, than preach and teach the Word of God, and how to apply those principals in today’s world. You cannot be double-minded as a Christian Leader, there is a hell, & there is a heaven, and Christ is the only way to God the Father.

I will continue being called whatever, & I am okay with that, as long as I am called to the Fathers House & be about His business. Besides if you are not “ruffling feathers” in a biblical sense, you are not doing something right. Jesus has been referred to as being “Wild“,’Radical”, “Rebellious”, the “Beautiful Outlaw“, so I believe I am in good company, until HE tells me otherwise. What I do, and how I live my life is unto the Lord, not mankind.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ”Colossians 3:23-24

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.” – 2 Timothy 4:1-2

“Where Did The Time Go?”

Have you ever watched a movie, committed to viewing it to the end, and later regretted it? Have you then thought that was a complete waste of 2 hrs of my life that I will never get back?

Allow me to preface something, I love movies. I am a huge “movie buff”.  I enjoy the mental entertainment of a good as well as a complex movie may provide. However, I also realize, as we all need too, that time is precious. Once it elapses, we cannot get it back, and we certainly cannot buy more time. It is priceless. Therefore may I make a recommendation as I try to implement myself. Take a few moments reading the about, look at the which actors are in them, review a few of the consumer, as well as critic, reviews. It may take 10 minutes. However, investing 10 minutes, to not lose 2 hours, is a worthy investment. Also keep in mind, as I try to, garbage in, becomes garbage out. If “you are what you eat into your body“, you may also quickly become what you put into your thoughts, and minds by what you have a tendency of making a habit of viewing.

Don’t believe me? You don’t have too, but it still doesn’t make me proven wrong. I know a bit about the subject, being involved and certified in mental health improvement. Look at what the 24/7 news media is doing and tending to make many Americans feel, possibly think, and believe.
