Demons And Mustard Seeds

by Conflicted Pastor

The verse about the mustard seed has always been a troubling one. As far as I know, a mountain has never been moved by speaking to it. Not even by Jesus. That’s not to say Continue reading

Shame, Shame, Shame on All of Us (Excerpt From FTOF)

This was written by “Conflicted,” not myself. He is my partner in crime in this horrible mess that is the book, “Fumbling Through Our Faith.” I sincerely respect him, not only as a Christian, pastor, but also a decent reasonable human being. Enjoy. More to come.

Disclaimer: As you should know by now… this particular joke is in NO WAY meant to belittle the damage and the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. It is strictly an observation… and it does not necessarily reflect the opinion of management and staff. 🙂

The Bible says, “Ask and ye shall receive.” Common sense tells us, “Be careful what you wish for.” And I can’t help but think… “I wonder what all the Christians in New York City think about all their prayers for God to come clean up their city?” To put it another way… Continue reading
