Honesty and Every Day Life

I am not sure how or why we often switch from the truth to lies. Sometimes I am not even sure if we ever really tell the truth. Maybe what passes between our lips is more often simply our version of the events happening to us or around us. Maybe, like Adam (the guy in the garden), we just head down the not quite true path without giving it much thought.

Sexual Orientation and the Bible – Part III

On the surface, seem much more caring than those farther back in history. I like to believe that over the centuries we have slowly come to listen more closely to the word of God. I like to think that man is growing more tolerant of others, more aware of the needs of those around us, and is doing more in general, to help all of those in need. I like to think that we have formed safety nets for those in need of protection.

Sexual Orientation and the Bible – Part II

This series by Brother Mark is being crossposted from our Facebook Page Since the Bible does not address gender in terms other than male and female, all classifications save one, listed in a previous post on this subject, have no Biblical bearing, no Biblical support. The one is "H", heterosexual. The Bible does, however, address sexual behaviors. It covers those behaviors from thinking about sex (lusting) to the various methods through which humans might participate in sex or in sexual acts. Please bear in mind that homosexuality in any form, that is, sex between men or sex between women, is not mentioned in the Bible. The words "homosexual" and "homosexuality" were coined during the late 1800's and could not therefore, have been used in the Bible which was written thousands of years ago. The behaviors that are components of homosexuality are mentioned repeatedly throughout the Bible.

Sexual Orientation and the Bible – Part I

This series by Brother Mark is being crossposted from our Facebook Page Thus far, Moyock Christian Fellowship has made few comments about sexuality, though we have stated that we believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God. We do not pick and choose verses to support our beliefs; we believe the entire Bible to be the word of God, inspired by God, written down by man.On the subject of human sexuality, we recognize that it is a difficult and complex subject to address, especially when the Bible is added to the discussion. However, during this, still the first week of the new Presidential administration, the President has already signed an executive order on sexuality. In part, because of the President's action, I believe it is time to have a discussion on sexuality and our beliefs.

May God continue to bless each of us as we move into a brand New Year

May God continue to bless each of us as we move into a brand New Year. This is a time to renew ourselves in God and in His son, Jesus Christ; a time to ponder our vows to them and think of new ways to live our lives in them. It is a time to think of our neighbors and ways we can help them to live better lives and to be enriched by ours, and for our lives to be enriched by theirs. As Paul often alluded, our lives are a race to be run, a race on a path leading to the acceptance of God's unconditional love and to eternal life, a race to be run to honor Him in all that we say and do. Sometimes we fail, we trip, we fall, but always we arise and continue the quest. May God bless us all.

Sunday Bible Bites – The Book of Joshua

Brother Mark brings the Book of Joshua to life in this lesson and ties in with one of the most well-known verses in the Bible, Joshua 1:9 which reads: "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." As our Nation and the World are faced with the pandemic of COVID-19, we do not need to be afraid, God has this.
