Comments Off on Your Spiritual Red Lines?, Filed in Videos, by CGP.
Red Lines and our Ethical Standards
When an employer or a government official asks you to do something, are there personal ‘red lines’ that you will not cross? As we enter a time of uncertainty are we prepared, knowing our moral and ethical lines that must be preserved regardless of the pressure to abandon them.
The religious authorities in Jesus’ day confronted him as he was in the temple celebrating the Feast of Dedication. They wanted to know if he was the Messiah, and what was the proof he could offer them. Jesus was not going to be bullied, but stated clearly that his works had already testified to his Messiahship. He made it clear that his ‘sheep,’ those that trusted and followed him, would follow his example. They would know what ‘red lines’ could not be crossed. More

Sodom and Lot and the End of the Age
When Jesus prophesied about the nature of society at the end of the age he told us to remember Sodom and Lot, and Noah and the flood. Jesus believed there were important lessons to be learned in remembering these places and events in history. Yet, he said these societies on the surface appeared ‘normal.’ Most people went about their daily activities indicating that life was ‘business as usual.’ They were buying and selling, farming and harvesting until destruction came upon them suddenly. Yet, if one had the insight of God and could see into people’s hearts, there was a different picture. For as the Lord God said, he felt compelled to destroy them for the ‘thoughts of their hearts were only evil continually.’
So how does our society fit into this picture? Are we there yet, wholly given to doing evil? Or do we still value truth and life? More

When Society Splinters – Where do We Belong
Is North American society at a major cultural turning point that will define or redefine our core identity? And what is our personal core identity? Where do we belong in a time of political, economic, and cultural upheaval? In the past century the world has experienced the ‘break-up’ of several once powerful nation-states into a multitude of warring civil groups. The core cultural identity of these areas was not sufficient to stop the splintering of society into multiple factions. And the end result for the individual was often catastrophic. Millions died and millions more became fearful and disillusioned. So this presents a question for Christians in times of political and social upheavals. Where do we belong and what is our core identity? More
Comments Off on Winners and Losers – God’s Advice for Today, Filed in Videos, by CGP.
Winners Need a Spiritual Compass
What does the bible have to say about winners and losers? Can you win, yet still lose? Can you ‘cheat’ and still win? Can you lose, but ultimately win? The apostle Paul, considered himself one of the worst of all sinners, as he had persecuted other believers. And yet, God had shown him great mercy. So Paul could put his past behind him and run the spiritual race with a hope of success. Paul used his experiences of loss to coach others in running their race and winning the prize of eternal life. He encouraged believers to have faith in Christ and follow the scriptural teachings. They needed to have their spiritual/moral compass set to the true north of God’s word, so they could run with a clear conscience. So are we running to win? More
Comments Off on Conquer Evil with Integrity – God’s Advice for Today, Filed in Videos, by CGP.
Evil Doers and their Evil Plans
To conquer evil, what is in the Christian arsenal? As a scripturalist Christian you have no doubt discovered that you do not fit into society. You cannot wholeheartedly embrace the ideologies of any of the highly partisan political tribes. For some of your acquaintances your scriptural perspectives are perhaps too ‘conservative.’ But for others, your views are just too ‘liberal.’ Isaiah’s prophecy of the nature of the time before the return of the Lord God as King of Kings rings true to you. Isaiah wrote of the fools who would make evil plans, would enrich themselves, and call themselves “liberal.’ When in reality they would reject the liberal ideals. The ideals of generosity, kindness, and community that are the basis of our constitutional freedoms.
So what is a Christian to do to conquer evil, in a time like ours? More

Pro- Choice? Make the Wise Choice!
Today’s abortion debate is framed in terms of pro-life or pro-choice, as if they are opposing ideas. But can we believe in choice and choose life? The God of scripture is vehemently pro-choice, as he has given everyone freewill. However, he does not leave us without guidance and the instructions we need to live well. The Lord God tells us to choose, and that the choices we have are between choosing death or life. But make no mistake, for God commands us to choose life! This is not only for our good, but for the good of our descendants, and society as a whole. Our choices make a difference, and not just for us. So what will we choose for ourselves, and our children? Will we listen to the advice of our Maker? More
Comments Off on What Makes for a Good Leader?, Filed in Videos, by CGP.
Good Leaders are Hard to Find
God was a Good Leader and he had chosen Samuel to judge his people! But when the people saw that Samuel’s sons were not godly men and used their position as judges to take bribes, they petitioned Samuel to give them a king. Israel had lived under a theocracy for several generations. God was their leader, the law of God was their constitution, and God gave them judges to guide them. But now they wanted to be like all the other nations. God’s response was to give them what they wanted. But, he also gave them a warning. He told Samuel to tell the people the consequences of having a king. For a good leader was hard to find.
Knowing the nature of humanity, God predicted that Israel’s kings would More
