A Pastor’s Confession

This is my confession. I’m sorry… To all the people who I once pastored in an institutional church… I am sorry that I didn’t know then what I know now. My church and Bible school experience did not adequately prepare me to walk you to complete freedom in Jesus’ name. Nor did I disciple you howContinue reading “A Pastor’s Confession”

Persuasive Words of Men?

If your faith is based on the persuasive words of men, your faith will not go deep. 
When life difficulty comes, your faith will fall.
 But, if your faith is based on the power of Holy Spirit, 
the kingdom of God in your life will be unshakable. Jesus didn’t merely share information, nor motivational speaking. Jesus alwaysContinue reading “Persuasive Words of Men?”

The Fastest Growing Church

This will challenge your every thought on: “WHAT and WHO is a church..?” Interestingly, I learned about this film on September 11… You will soon learn why… “The fastest growing church in the world has taken root in one of the most unexpected and radicalized nations on earth,” according to “Sheep Among Wolves,” the outstandingContinue reading “The Fastest Growing Church”

We are Tired of Listening to Men

“Mr Moody, there must be more prayer. The speaking here is excellent but there is too much of it in proportion to prayer. We do not have time to pray. We get tired when going to meetings, listening to men. We must have more time to speak to God and to listen to Him.” – AndrewContinue reading “We are Tired of Listening to Men”

How Lies Control Us

What I have noticed in walking with my Life Coaching clients… If you know the truth but don’t live it out, this is living a lie. Believing lies, makes liars of ourselves and makes it possible for greater deception to ensnare us more deeply. When we believe lies, we are more easily frightened and anxious andContinue reading “How Lies Control Us”

A Culture of Honour – Men and Women

Tears of healing began to roll down my face. I didn’t know what was happening in me at the time, but I found myself in a culture of honour – observing and experiencing men honouring women and vice versa. It was so powerful JUST WITNESSING IT. I wept deeply… healing much of the diagnosed psychological, emotional,Continue reading “A Culture of Honour – Men and Women”

How do you know if you’re in a false ‘church’?

How do you know if you’re in a false ‘church’ ? Today’s lent devotional (below) was extremely timely as I walk several clients through ‘church’ abuse in multiple churches in my area. When churches practice witchcraft – control and manipulation, there is even trauma around reading God’s Word. Breaks my heart. Thankfully, Jesus loves toContinue reading “How do you know if you’re in a false ‘church’?”

What is Your Eternal Inheritance?

The following intro from “The Triumphant Church”: The believer’s inheritance in Christ is the wisdom of God, and it was hidden throughout previous ages until it was revealed through Jesus Christ. Grasping that truth and walking in the reality of God’s inheritance for us as saints is the key to taking our place as the triumphantContinue reading “What is Your Eternal Inheritance?”

Theology: Are you a Settler or Pioneer?

This is from Brennan Manning’s book Lion and Lamb: the Relentless Tenderness of Jesus. (As read in class by Murray Dueck of Samuel’s Mantle) There are two visions of life, two kinds of people. The first see life as a possession to be carefully guarded. They are called settlers. The second see life as aContinue reading “Theology: Are you a Settler or Pioneer?”

Letters to the Church – Francis Chan

Francis Chan – Letters to the Church ( #paradigmshift ) A few quotes from Francis Chan that will get you thinking…! “God designed the Church to be much more than what the majority of us experience in America. There are many of us who believe this and want change. The good news is that GodContinue reading “Letters to the Church – Francis Chan”
