CLARITY IS THE MAIN THING NOT ALWAYS AGREEMENT

CLARITY NOT AGREEMENT chief thing

clarity trumps agreement every time

Clarity is the main thing and not always agreement. But there is much wisdom in clarity. Dennis Prager (Radio Talk show Host) has often said: “He prefers clarity over agreement.”

 In 2 Chronicles 1:9-11 the importance of Godly wisdom,  above all the desires of man is made clear.

Why Stephen A. Smith Suggesting Blacks Vote Republican Proves We Still Have a Long Way To Go

Stephen A. Smith Suggesting Blacks Vote Republican: Should not be just a suggestion, but rather seen as prophetic declaration of impending doom. Its our duty to vote Republican and to select wisely those conservatives that remain true to the principles that have made America Great; love for God, love for family, love for country and Love for the constitution. To do anything less would be proof to the world, that Negros, facing total destruction were indeed “Stupid.” Instead Let us say,in the spirit of Nehemiah as he labored to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, in opposition to the enemies of the Jews: “set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows; said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, be not afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.” (Nehemiah 4:13-14)

Just Thinking...for Myself

It doesn’t speak well of the supposed progress made by black Americans when, a half-century after passage of the Voting Rights Act, it is deemed “controversial” that a black man would dare to suggest that black Americans vote Republican during an election cycle.

The black man of whom I speak is sports journalist and television and radio commentator Stephen A. Smith.

I will acknowledge up-front that Smith is no stranger to controversy, having made headlines previously on such topics as the shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, the domestic violence incident involving recently-retired NFL running back Ray Rice and inferring that black voters are being taken advantage of by the Democrat Party.

In this case, however, to describe Smith’s suggestion as “controversial” is not only inaccurate but sad.

Why?

Because in 2015, despite the historic struggles and sacrifices of black Americans to obtain the right to…

When we think of the Old Testament character Joshua, one of two things usually comes to mind: he was the successor to Moses in leading the nation of Israel into the Promised Land (Joshua 1:2); he led the Israelites to victory at Jericho (Joshua 6).

Most of us can remember, I’m sure, singing the lyrics, “Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho! Joshua fought the battle of Jericho and the walls came a-tumblin’ down!”

That’s usually where our familiarity with Joshua stops.

No doubt, Joshua was a great leader.

In fact, countless books have been written about leadership lessons that can be learned from him.

But, the book of Joshua holds much more for us than the “stories” we were told as children attending Sunday school or precepts for corporate executives about organizational leadership.

In fact, one of the more profound and unappreciated lessons from…

The Deafening Silence of the Black Church on Homosexual Marriage

Just Thinking...for Myself

The reason traditional (heterosexual) marriage receives certain civil benefits that non-traditional (homosexual) marriage does not, is because traditional marriage is the means by which families are, and have throughout the whole of time, been created and propagated and, consequently, earthly societies and cultures sustained.

Marriage is first and foremost a spiritual union not a civil one, because both its definition and purpose originate from a spiritual Being (John 4:24).

Marriage is a God-ordained institution whose essential purpose is inherently antithetical to the very concept of “homosexual marriage” (an oxymoron if ever there was one.) God’s command to “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth…” (Genesis 1:28) was given to the male and female whom God Himself created in His own image (Genesis 1:26-27).

That husbands and wives are to “be fruitful and multiply” is a mandate that cannot possibly be fulfilled by those…

On Multiculturalism, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God

we are workers together with God He draws those He Wills

Just Thinking...for Myself

Not that my personal opinion on this carries any weight, after all, I’m just a guy with a blog.

Nevertheless, I want to say that I do not subscribe to the camp of Christians who believe churches should deliberately aspire to achieve more “congregational diversity” within the Church (the body of Christ).

Please note that the operative word in my opening statement is “deliberately”.

By “congregational diversity”, I’m specifically referring to what essentially boils down to racial and ethnic multiculturalism disguised as evangelism.

I say this because many so-called evangelical churches today have bought into the worldly notion that “marketing” the gospel in such a way as to specifically attract certain ethnic, racial and cultural groups is the best way to fulfill the Great Commission and get people to “embrace” the gospel (as if the gospel itself has been rendered impotent and is no longer enough to achieve such ends.)

By adopting such an unbiblical model, the…
