I’ve been holding on to a video for a couple weeks that I wanted to write an article about, but time is a precious commodity… I’ll let this speak for itself.
Here is a secular, female divorce attorney who specializes in defending fathers. She has a fantastic grip on the importance of fathers and has made a real difference in the lives of thousands of children who still have close access to their fathers!

Someone ‘gets it!’ Sort of…
I was just made aware that WorldNetDaily published an article titled A National Solution to the Boy Crisis hours before I published Orphan, according to Scripture.
Reading their article and the comments highlights two very important things:
– The world knows there is a radical problem when no father is present, and
– They haven’t a clue that Scripture has a solution, writ LARGE that they choose to ignore.
Godly men are too few, but single moms/women (and their children) are not limited to the dregs of male choices. As clearly articulated in our articles, papers, links, refutations, etc, Scripture clearly teaches that a man may have more than one wife and be the father that so many boys need.
culture disaster in western civilization is fueled in large part by false monogamy-only doctrines and egalitarian mindsets that emasculate men and are decidedly UNbiblical. We’re just reaping the whirlwind we sowed…
Want to reverse the trend? Want to be part of the solution instead of the problem? Take God’s Word seriously and quit making excuses for why God calls Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David et al, righteous when they clearly had larger families than America’s 2.1 children.
It is not uncommon to hear the charge, or at least the undertone, when discussing what Scripture has to say concerning male and female roles that God must hate women. I mean, He requires that they submit to their husbands, desires that they be under male headship and seems not to have a problem with polygynous marriages. At the same time, men appear to have much more freedom and self determination. What gives? Does God indeed hate women? Is He a misogynist?

In recent months I have watched with some dismay as multiple people around me have strongly considered or actually taken the leap and converted to Judaism. The move itself is not so problematic except that the conversion process generally demands a firm denial of Yeshua as the Messiah and that is monumental.
My journey out of a Christian pulpit and to the Hebrew roots of the faith began when I started to evaluate many of the traditions I had been handed. Each traditional understanding of Scripture, handed down from Christian theologians for up to 1600 years, had to be evaluated against what Scripture actually said. And, central to it all was the looming question regarding Yeshua/Jesus as the Messiah.
I knew coming into the study that Christianity had some things very wrong, but experience told me that somethings were right. The key was to tease out the valuable elements and leave the rest behind. I was a bit perplexed as I began exploring many sources of information to find that Judaism, like Christianity, was filled with traditional interpretations that simply do not add up to Scripture.

I was raised in Christendom and later attended seminary and was ordained as a pastor in a Presbyterian denomination. One of the highlights of worship in Christendom is ‘The Lord’s Supper’ or ‘Communion,’ served quarterly in some churches, more frequently in others.
A recent question concerning my faith was posed asking if our fellowship observed ‘the Lord’s Supper to remember Christ’s sufficient work to pay for our sins.’ While the question is multifaceted in that it has underlying questions about the sufficiency of Messiah and implied questions concerning the place of ‘working out our salvation with fear and trembling,’ I have been pondering the Christian tradition of the ‘Lord’s Supper.’ Is the normal praxis of Christendom with bread and wine defensible or even found in Scripture? Or, is it a tradition with little basis in Scripture and more a compilation of tradition and ‘feel good’ memories that may seem worshipful, but do not meet the expectations of a Holy God with clear instructions?
Tough, tough questions, but worth exploring!
Having led / performed 60-80 Communion services (our church practice while I was in the pulpit was quarterly observance) I’ll try to shed some light on this touchy subject. Continue reading “‘The Lord’s Supper’ : A tradition of men?”
The provocative title is true and intended to get your attention. Simply, the New Covenant is NOT with the Gentiles. That is not to say Gentiles can’t enter in, because Ephesians 2 and Romans 9-11 teach that they can, however, they immediately stop being Gentiles and become a part of Israel.
Until one understands this and the attendant implications (Torah to be written on their heart), they simply do not understand Scripture nor can they correctly assemble prophecy. Hard to swallow, I know.
Study it out. How many eternal promises are there to Israel? To the ‘house of Israel?’ To the ‘house of Judah?’ To ‘Ephraim?’
Christian doctrine ignores these glaring pieces precisely because they do no understand them. I was a pastor. Seminary trained. I nor my professors understood these things, yet in His mercy, Abba is restoring the ancient paths (Jer. 6:16-19) and recovering His flock.
Dare to ask God to open your eyes to ALL of His Word.
