If this is not a place where tears
are understood,
where can I go to cry?
And if this is not a place were my
 spirit can take wing,
where can I go to fly?
I don't need another place for always
 being on top of things.
Everyone knows that is a sham.
I don't need another place for always
 wearing smiles
even when it is not the way I feel.
I don't need another place to mouth
 old platitudes,
for you and I both know it's not real.
If this is not a place where my
heart-cries can be heard,
where shall I go to speak?
If this is not a place where tears
are understood,
where shall I go to cry?

Sermon Series: Domestic Violence and Abuse

I've been listening to a sermon series by Jeff Crippen of Christ Reformation Church on domestic violence and other abuses. 

"Before we can deal with an abuser we have to get these logs out of our eyes...lots of them."

"The Christian church has not done a good job in helping the victims of abuse. In fact we harbor abusive people. Why is that? This is suppose to be the pillar and support of truth."

Are You Giving Them Law? Romans 10 (Repost)

What is legalism?

It is a reliance upon human works for any kind of justification before God.

Is confession relying on your works? How about believing in your heart? How do we know we've believed enough? This sermon revisits and puts in to proper context of verses that has been misused since the days of Finney.

"Many have led people to Christ using the "Romans Road" approach, but what few realize is that we often give people a legalistic approach to Christ through this method. We should be careful not to give someone another act to perform for salvation; but rather, we give people the Gospel and the confession and belief will accompany it as God implants the Word into their heart." Steven Bratton on Romans 10: 6-11.
