Preparing For Intersession

EM Bounds teaches that Intersession is a form of prayer that is not for ones self, but for others. He also shares how we should be arriving to the prayer meeting already full and having been filled up in the presence of God that very morning. We should come ready.

My EDC (Everyday Carry)

I remember when I was first asked “Do you EDC?”. I’m pretty sure it was phrased just like that. I was confused, slightly annoyed that someone asked me if I [acronym]. I reluctantly responded “What is EDC?”, to which the gentleman smiled and excitedly explained the acronym. All is forgiven, it turns out the gentleman who asked me was just a nerd.

Guerrilla Warfare, In the Government?

In the movie The Patriot, we are shown how Guerrilla warfare turned the tides against the British military. Ambushes, supply chain attacks, blockades. It’s all about breaking the rules of engagement. I’ve been following some policy changes with the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms agency) and how they are taking it upon themselves to reclassify items that have already been classified by established law, like the NFA (National Firearms Act) of 1934. Usually government Institutions must follow their laws and bi-laws or else oversight committees will penalize them and remove bad actors from the institution. Or will they?

Public Confidence

To whom, when, and where does public confidence matter? In the United States of America, We the People recognize our rights. Well, some of us do. Others have been educated poorly by the DOE (yes, I’m calling you out, public education system) and lack knowledge of history. There is also an evident lack of value in our God given rights. The Constitution of The United States and the first 10 amendments, the Bill of Rights, confirm our rights and freedom. These established documents aim to keep us free, and control our ever expanding government.

So, I bought a Jeep.

2007 Jeep Wrangler X Sport Utility 2D (Trail Rated)

Ever feel a call to adventure? A desire to explore and go beyond the boundaries of paved roads and hit the trails? Do you watch off-road and overland videos and ooh-and-awe at the views and terrain? Well, I did. So I bought a Jeep. There are a lot of 4×4 vehicles capable for off-road use, and can be had for less than what a Jeep costs. However, there’s a reason Jeeps, and specifically the Jeep Wrangler, is so popular – It works. 4×4 hi/low, light-weight, and easy to maneuver.

A Generation Who Loves Themself 

The Beatles wrote a song called “All You Need Is Love” in which they borrow wisdom from the Bible referring to Ecclesiastes 1:9. They sing that it’s easy to be or do whatever you want, because it’s been done before. The solution is – all you need is love. God is love, so the chorus is true, we only need God. All this being said, I don’t think the song is a good model for a true believer. I believe this song is revealing a sickness our society battles with today.

Are We Really All Selfish?

Someone at work debated with me that doing good things for others was selfish. The argument suggested that doing good deeds makes you feel good about yourself, therefore self serving. We exchanged examples and debated, but neither of our opinions changed. How can a seemingly selfless action be, in fact, selfish?

From Streams to Rivers

Last night I was considering the social state of our society. I know God is present, but from the behavior of His people it doesn’t seem like we’re winning against the onslaught of evilness in the world. I feel like Christians should be affecting the balance of selfishness to selflessness. As in more programs, charities, apparent acts of love on freeways, highways, streets, businesses, schools, grocery stores, day and night. However, I’m not seeing it like that.
