There’s Only Ten

Freedom in Christ
The most entertaining scenes in the TV sitcom “Big Bang Theory” have to be the ones with Sheldon’s mom, Mary Cooper.  She is a Christian from Texas who is the complete opposite of her Darwinian son who subscribes to a different gospel.   CLICK THE PLAY BUTTON [embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OL5yplRHE9g[/embedyt] This clip, I think, brilliantly captures our response to today’s topic of COVID-19 where opinions are being stated as facts and facts are being diminished to conspiracies.  It all boils down to where and how you live.  Did you ever think you would live to see the day where your choice of who you will listen to and follow regarding these social restrictions would lead to such harsh accusations and treatment? My husband lets his Raisin Bran soak until all of the…

You Have Fear…Now What?

Freedom in Christ
In these days of isolation, social distancing in attempts to contain the SARS-COVID-19 and COVID-19 virus strains, the trauma response for many heightens.  The first indicator was the rapid depletion in our grocery stores of toilet paper.

We can all have complete freedom and a life better than we ever dreamed of

We can all have complete freedom and a life better than we ever dreamed of

Freedom in Christ
In John 10:10 the Message says: "A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of." Satan wants to steal, kill and destroy in our lives but Jesus came and died on the cross so that we can have life and have it better than we ever dreamed of.  That means that we have to believe what this scripture says and move into that realm of thought and being.
