I get tons of questions about my particular stances for the Lord, usually revolving around why I seem so darn angry. The majority of church folks just don’t see things from my perspective and it is easy to dismiss how I am or what I say as just being “angry”, ministering from my wounds, stopped… Continue reading Being Unbalanced
“I could not understand why men who knew all about good and evil could hate and kill each other”. Mary Shelley Frankenstein “Je n’ai jamais été chrétien, je n’ai été réveillé que par Dieu. I have never been a Christian, I have only been awakened by God.” ~Vérité, self. There is only one way to… Continue reading Sacrilege towards the Frankenchrist.
want you to consider something in regards to prayer.

I have come to feel that the trappings of the zeitgeist can only really be seen when they are held up in contrast… Continue reading Worship: Singing Your Lies.
‘If I had my way, I’d fire you. You aren’t the God of serious men, you’re the God of little girls that wish upon a star’. Thus began my prayer time today. No reflective pause at the start, no praising Him for this or that thing, no coming before him in the mighty and incomparable… Continue reading The God of Serious Men?
No, this is not a warning to those engaged in the character assassination of others while deeply embedded in the sin of gluttony that comes from too much fried chicken.
