Pure Word

The most nutritious and tasting food is pure food. Do you enjoy food straight from the garden? I love garden fresh fruits vegetables such as corn, peas, beans, radishes, onions and strawberries.

Pure sugar is much better than artificial sweetners. Pure cream, butter and lard are the best for cooking and baking aids. Aunt Ruth Douglass cooked with lard her whole life; she died a few weeks before turning 97; she delivered food to the shut-ins through her 80s, and I believe early 90s.

Pureness provides an array of nutrients! Most nutrients are lost with artificial substitutions.

Are you in the Pure word of God? We consume the pure word of God when reading scripture and listening to his voice. Jesus says that his sheep know his voice. We consume pure scripture when acknowledging the pure authenticity of God's word. This acknowledgement includes confessing God's wisdom far exceeds our own. We are to understand that if scripture doesn't make sense or too 'far fetched,' our wisdom, knowledge and understanding are lacking.

Jesus is the word made flesh, a pure word is a pure Christ!

Beware, some preach an errant scripture, thus an errant Christ. Additionally, declaring portions as 'fiction' as I recently heard a pastor boldly proclaim, is judging "most Bible scholars..." to be wiser than God. A fictional Bible is fictional spiritual nutrition.

Enjoy purity and nutrition in both food and scripture. God is the creator of both.

"Feels like..."

It seems each year the exaggerations expand. A new plateau of exaggaration is attained this summer. I really rarely hear the temperature reported, rather we hear it "feels like 110." Yet, my thermometer may only read 95! What is wrong with saying it is 95 degrees and 65% (or whatever) humidity?

Can I pay my bills using the "Feels like" factor?

Listening to the "Feels like" temperature causes me to believe the weather the past few weeks has been hot. In reality, the temperatures are moderate, staying in the 90s.

We have become a world of perception over reality. Pictures are cut and paste into misleading backgrounds. Temperatures are reported as "feels like." If 95 degrees "feels like" 110, what does 110 feel like?

Societies evolving foundation of perception seeps into theology. Yet, God stands firm on his word. Many have effectively re-written the Bible to say "He that believes anything shall be saved.

The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth. Standing firm in one area of life, results in standing firmly on truth in all areas of your life. There is only one Holy Spirit! Stand firm on truth, start by reporting the temperature accurately; then you will better understand that Christ is the only way to the Father.

Truth is Truth. Deception is Deception. Which do you choose?

If you remain comfortable with the "feels like" factor, try paying your bills or receiving your income in the "feels like" factor.

Bandage: Good or Too Restrictive

Thought the end of a finger had a REALLY dark tan all afternoon: Instead the bandage was a tad tight.

Yesterday while slicing potatos to make hashbrowns, my finger became caught on the slicer. The caused several cuts on the top of my finger. I placed two bandages on the finger, then replaced those with another bandage. I believed the bandage need to be wrapped tight on my finger for bleeding to stop and healing to occur.

I left the tight, restrictive bandage on too long. Whenever I glanced at my finger today, it appeared unusually dark. I lack excess concern because I wanted my finger to heal, and avoid additional bleeding. I continued rationalizing the tight restrictive bandage was good for my finger.

After exercising tonight, I realized my finger was nearly black. I quickly cutoff the bandage. The finger's natural color returned, along with its vibrant health. The wound is healing without a bandage, there is no bleeding.

My finger could easily represent the U.S. economy and the bandage equivocating Government and its regulation. There are moments when a bandage on a sector or portion of the economy is beneficial to assist it regaining health.

However, regulations, like bandages are potentially more harmful than good. Especially if too restrictive and left on too long. Just as my finger became discolored, the economy also becomes discolored. Only by removing the restrictive Government 'bandage' do we restore economic vibrancy.

What meaningful reputation do we have outside of the Holy Spirit? His view is the only one that matters in my life. When you and I mess up, confess and repent, he forgives us. When we do right, he blesses us.

Do the thoughts of the secular world matter? Only to the secular!

Whose opinion, rebuke and reward is above the Lord’s?

E=mC >E=mc2


I craved temporary death the last five miles of the Boston Marathon, seeking relief from the knife-piercing pain of dehydration and exhaustion.

Do you crave complete relief from the exhaustion of responsibilities pushing you to the edge of emotional, physical, and spiritual collapse?

Do you believe Christ desires great achievements in your life, yet you remain unsure how to complete them?

Where does the energy to achieve Christ’s plans for your life originate?

First, let us examine the components of energy. Albert Einstein discovered the Theory of Relativity in the early Twentieth Century, E =mc2 (E = Energy, m = mass, and c = speed of light). This equation revealed all matter has the same energy per ounce.

For example, a ounce of straw has the same energy as a ounce of uranium. Mass equals matter, operating as wavelengths. Other forms of wavelengths include light, sound, and thoughts.

Yes, the speed of light influences the quantity of your energy. I studied this formula a multitude of times since junior high science. Recently, a new pondering came to light while reviewing the Theory of Relativity. Is all light equal? I previously believed all light molecules are equal in speed—670,616,629 MPH—thus equal in energy.

Conversely, molecules from created light pale in power to the Creator’s light, the Light of Christ, C (John 1:3-5,9). Christ contains the purest, brightest, and fastest light.

Energy = mass*Christ (Light of the World) > Energy = mass*speed of light2

Instead of receiving temporary death at Boston, my soul cried out those final five miles. Lord, I need you! I can’t, You can, we are. It is not me, but Christ who is in me. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).

Christ provided sufficient energy for my race completion, along with the two-liters of IV’s for re-hydration in the post-race medical tent.

When seeking your source of energy to achieve Christ’s will for your life, submit your physical, emotional, and spiritual mass, your heart, soul, and mind to the Light of Christ who provides miraculous energy.

This submission invites Christ’s exponential increase of your existence,
just as He also increased the mass—the filling power—of the fish and bread when feeding the crowds of five-thousand men, plus the women and children (Matthew 14:13-21).

E=mC provides sufficient energy for the completion of your race, along with hydration from the water with which you will never thirst again (John 4:14).

See Christ, Believe Christ, Achieve with the Light of Christ!

Dallas Theological Seminary

I am beginning pursuit of a M.A. Christian Leadership at Dallas Theological Seminary this Fall (August 2011). This is a leap of Faith in response to a long time call to the ministry.

I continually recall my Dad's advice in our last meaningful conversation before his death, "Always trust God, remember that son, Trust God always." "I will Dad, I will."

Christ has always provided each of our needs, and will continue to do so as we seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness; all else will be added to unto you, me and all who seek Christ.

Fueling Guest's Transportation

Genesis 24:32 “So the man went to the house and the camels were unloaded. Straw and fodder were brought for the camels, and water for him and his men to wash their feet.

As I was reading this passage this morning before leaving for church; the Lord asked, “Rick, when special guests visit your home; do you fill their car with fuel?” Instantly, I acknowledged I had failed to provide a full tank of gas for guests to my home. This is something that is neither offered nor expected.

We read of food provided for camels and horses throughout history. Why is this practice discontinued with petroleum generated transportation? In the days of camels and horses, available livestock feed was often sparse; while gas and diesel are readily available at nearby convenient stores today.

One can easily argue the same is true of food and lodging, numerous restaurants and hotels exist near most of today’s residences; yet we continue the practice of feeding and lodging our guests.

The next time you or I am visited by a special guest, should we rush to fill their vehicle with fuel? That question is best placed before God in your prayers; then listening for his still small voice directing your thoughts and actions according to his will.

Mt. 7:1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.”

Frequently when driving, I get upset with other drivers; particularly the fast maniacs and the slow pokes. Of course, this is all relative to my driving the ‘perfect’ speed of three or four miles an hour over the speed limit. If only other drivers were as perfect as me! Do you share this attitude whether driving, performing a task at work, or volunteering?

I fail to consider the reason others are speeding more than I am; perhaps they are taking someone to the hospital, or hurrying to assist someone in danger. Maybe they are in deep thought; their cruise control does not work, and have no idea of their speed. A plethora or reasons exist for those speeding as well as the ‘slow pokes.’ Perhaps the ‘Slow poke,’ is returning from the hospital where a family member just passed away. Maybe they too are in deep thought or enjoying a good conversation with a passenger.

I am wrong in judging them as maniacs or slow pokes; as I do not know the reason for their chosen speed. Does this allow each of us to avoid and disregard the speed limit and rules of the road? Of course not! Driving laws and speed limits are implemented for travelers’ safety. Following them enhances our chance of traveling safely for many years.

Ultimately, I am judging the creators of the speed limit as ineffective when I intentionally speed, or encourage others to disregard the speed limit. Fortunately, the Sheriff, deputies and State Patrol are forgiving when I exceed the speed limit by 1/100th MPH or 4 MPH. However, if they continually heard me condemning others breaking the speed limit; they would give me a ticket every time I exceeded the limit.

The Bible is full of examples of Jesus, Apostles and Disciples proclaiming the “Speed Limit,” this proclamation is different than judging others. Judging others is lifting us and our sinful behavior as acceptable and theirs as condemnable.

Just as we are to avoid condemning others, we are also to avoid condemning the laws and the Creator of laws. We are to avoid intentionally living outside of the law, and encouraging others to live outside the law.

Fortunately, God through Christ’s death and resurrection forgives us every time will break his laws. However, scripture states that if we condemn others of their mistakes; he will condemn us each time we fail to live perfectly.
