Star Wars vs. Christianity

Well, it's National Star Wars Day, you know, "May the Fourth be with you" as they say; however, I say, "May the Father be with you." For what is Star Wars if not a pale imitation of Christianity? You have the light side with their Jedi, the Christians, ambassadors of peace, bearers of justice, and wisdom in all areas of life, drawing their power from the force, big 'G' God of all things. Then you have the darkside with their Sith or sinners who are unsaved, thirsting for power, hungering for wealth, wishing to destroy the Jedi, drawing their power from the force as well, the little 'g' god of this world, Satan. While the Sith want nothing more than to kill and destroy the Jedi order, Jedi simply want to save the Sith and convert them to good, meaning, that the Christians want to convert the non-believers to Christianity. How do Star Wars fans not see the connection here? For those die hard fans who are unsaved, but have praised the series their whole lives, how can they not accept God for who He is? They are actively choosing to walk the path of the darkside, the path of a sinner, remaining as an enemy to God; yet, all it takes to become a Jedi, a Saint/Christian, is to accept what Jesus Christ did for them 2014 years ago. God our Father recognized our helplessness and certain doom for the wrong doing in our lives. So, He sent His, perfect, one and only Son in the world as a human, to live as an example of goodness, then die for us, so that all our wrong would be wiped away. All it takes to receive that free gift is to believe in Jesus and accept what He selflessly did for us; and, just as He was raised from the dead to live with the Father for all eternity, so shall it be for all who follow Him. "I pray that all those who do not have a personal relationship with You Lord, that You would open their eyes, ears, mind, and heart to Your Holy Spirit, and that You would reveal Your truth to them. I pray these things in Jesus name, amen." I hope that you all have a wonderful Sunday, oh, and May the Fourth be with you!

The Need for Free Christian Spiritual Guidance

Have you ever reached a point in your spiritual walk that you kind of feel like you've hit a brick wall? Whereas you used to feel that you were growing on a daily basis, you sort of feel like you're not making any further progress towards spiritual maturity? If you're anything like me, more likely than not, you have or may at some point in your relationship with God.

I'll give you an example from my life to show you exactly what I'm talking about, just so it's a little clearer in your mind. For the past four months I've been spending time in the Word, praying, searching for areas I can change, and just desiring to be used by God. Well, up to this point, I've had pretty visible progress, I've dropped most if not all of the things which were sinful in my life, I haven't found any areas in my life which I can hand over to God, I also don't feel like I've heard from Him in a while, and it just really feels like I've hit a brick wall. Wha…

The 4 Best Leadership Qualities and skills of a Humble Christian! (Updated)

What makes a good Christian leader?

What are the qualities of a great leader?

I think we can all agree that Jesus was and is the ultimate leader and the way that He showed Himself to be a leader was by humbling Himself to the place of a servant.

In 1 Peter chapter 5, Peter offers great advice and even the characteristics of good leaders in the church to both elders and young men; though these principles can be applied to both men and women alike.

In the first verse of chapter 5 Peter points out that he is a fellow elder and shares in the suffering of Christ with all of his brothers and sisters. I find it truly humbling that after all he had been a part of, participating in Christ's personal ministry as one of his closest disciples, that he still considered himself an equal and not a superior.

Just try putting yourself in Peter's shoes, imagine that you had been one of the first followers and true believers of Jesus Christ. Having it revealed to you that Jesus was indeed the …

Use Fitness to Witness for Jesus

Continuing along the same basic principles that I've been teaching about for the past couple of days, we'll be moving on to witnessing for Jesus Christ. As I pointed out in one of my last articles, "The Ab Workout of Christianity", I love to workout and be in the gym; four days a week at the very least. Something was brought to my attention today, which I've never really paid much mind, until now; once you reach a certain fitness level, others begin to approach you with questions.

I'll give you a couple of examples to show you exactly what I mean and how it may happen during your workout routine. A couple of months ago there was a middle aged woman who was doing her ab workout on the declined bench next to me. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed her watching my exercise, which was the Russian Twist, where you hold a medicine ball or weight and twist from side to side. After I completed my repetitions she asked me exactly what portion of the abs the exercise…
