Decisions Decisions

You may have heard it said that we are all products of our environment and to some degree I believe that is true. But a more accurate statement would be that we are all products of our decisions. Think about it for a second. No matter where are you in life, no matter what your […]

Bad Theology Alert!

For the past couple weeks I’ve been reading The Handbook for Spiritual Warfare by Dr. Ed Murphy. It has its interesting points, but something in it the other night struck me as wrong-headed and the kind of thinking that gets Christians and even non-believers in trouble.
