  1. I suggest Life begins at death. This…this life…is boot camp.

    This is not heaven. This is the life before the afterlife. This is where the battles are fought, where wounds are inflicted, where healing begins…

    • Thanks once more for commenting. I love to hear from other people and viewpoints.

      With that said, I am sorry but I must vehemently disagree with you on this. The book of John opens up with, “But as many s received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God…Who were BORN, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God”. Jesus also said, those who hear His word and believe in God, “hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life”. Notice the tense of those verses. They are not future tense but present and past tense. We are a “new creation” (2 Corinthians 5:17) when we come to Christ. That is what regeneration does, we are made new, we are recreated, we are born again. Think of Baptism, we are “buried with Christ, risen to new life”.

      Life is here! It is now! And it will never end! This “life” on earth isn’t the “life before the afterlife”, it is simply the conception, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimesters, and the delivery, however, just as a baby in the womb is alive at the moment of conception, we too are alive, the moment the blood is applied.

      • This is my reasoning: What you write here has passion and conviction. Your self-deprecating humor, while funny at first, is empty by comparison…and not beneficial to you, others, or Jesus. Such humor often has an element of truth to it and you don’t need to be putting yourself down; no one else enjoys watching it; and Jesus can’t use it: it does not give Him an in.

        My comment about life coming after death is a reference to previous discussions with other bloggers who have struggled with seemingly senseless events, illnesses, persecutions, and untimely deaths…why does God allow these things to happen, etc. I try to remind those who despair that we are not going to get it right in this life. As Timothy Keller points out, Christianity offers the most satisfactory viewpoint because of the promise of eternal life with God. I apologize because I left out the context within which my statement belongs.

      • Those posts will be in here. In fact I have one scheduled for this week that has no humor and doesn’t speak of me at all. Actually, yesterday I posted one of those, Where Are The Christians. What you see as self-deprecating I see as taken the less than polished parts of my life and finding God. If I simply came in here and laughed at myself, I would feel you critique is correct, however, all of my posts end by pulling a spiritual truth out of the muck and mire of my life. You call this “mentioning God in passing”, I call it finding God in the idiocies of life.

        I am not writing the Bible here but a journal. This also is not necessarily evangelistic. I am simply writing what ever crazy, mixed up, thought is on my mind at that time. Some days will be deep others not so much, some will be a mixture but they all have passion you just have an idea of passion showing up in the excitement of grand declaration. However, passion, to me is most beautifully shown when a man doesn’t feel passionate but still chooses to proclaim God.

        As I said, thanks for the comments and I definitely will pause and consider them, make any adjustments I feel are necessary, but I want people to quit being so serious. My goodness, the church needs a relief from the apocalyptic, turn it burn, attitude that is being spilled out today. We’ve become so serious that we’ve lost sight of the fact it is GOOD NEWS. Its time for someone, with sound doctrine, to say, “It is okay to admit we are not perfect. It is okay to show your not so perfect side and yes, it’s even okay to laugh at those because at the end of the day it is all Grace, even less than hero’esque moments. Even heroes do dumb things, it’s how we choose to let those moment affect our direction that proves them heroic. That’s my goal.

        Why can’t we find the querky, inconsistencies in our lives and laugh about them? Maybe, just maybe, if Christians spent more time getting real with our lack of perfection and admitted we don’t always get It right, the world might actually begin to see humility in the church and you know what happens God’s people “humble themselves…”
