Hermeneutical wishful thinking

by Theodore Wright I am not saying that this is my own hermeneutical wishful thinking nor even that I have such. This is something I find devoted Cessationists have. Cessationism is a doctrine stating that spiritual gifts (such as speaking in tongues, prophecy and healing) ceased with the early church. Cessationism says that the Holy […]

A Cretan said, “Cretans are always liars”

by Theodore Wright.   One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.” This testimony is true. – Titus 1:12-13a NKJV   Do you mean to tell me that a Cretan prophet actually said, “Cretans are always liars”? Well, if that is the case then he must […]

Has somebody gone out to lunch?

by Theodore Wright.   People often just go out to have a midday meal elsewhere or said to be somewhere, however, this could just be an excuse for not being around when you phone needing someone. Perhaps they are unaware or not attentive to what is currently going on being truly out of touch. Where […]

Recollections of my religious search and skepticism

by Theodore Wright.   During my college days I became an agnostic, subsequent to being an atheist, personally considering there was a possibility of there being some kind of a god, I had conversations with people of various religious faiths in search for proof. I was willing to believe in God if there was such […]

What really happened when I called upon Jesus

by Theodore Wright.   During the time I was an agnostic, between the ages of 18 through 21 years, after I was an atheist from the ages of 15 through 18 years, I considered there was the possibility of some god hiding behind one of those stars or planets out there. I could have died […]

Scriptures on finding a godly wife or husband

by Theodore Wright.   THERE IS HOPE FOR YOU YET!   YES, MARRIAGE!!! The Holy Bible tells you how to find a godly spouse so that you may find the mate you desire.   Firstly, believers in Jesus Christ should be marrying other believers… 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (NKJV) 14 Do not be unequally yoked together […]

Was Jephthah’s daughter really a burnt offering?

by Theodore Wright.   Did Jephthah’s daughter really get offered up as a burnt sacrifice by her own father or did Jephthah do something else? Did she really get “FRIED” for doing nothing wrong nor of her own fault but due to the foolish words of her “dear old dad”?   30 And Jephthah made […]

Roman Catholic priest sex scandals censored

We regret the need to mention this topic but enough is enough and there have been far too many victims. This ungodly world holds to a higher moral standard than the Roman Catholic Church does.   Roman Catholic Church priest sex scandals going on in , or around where you live? It happened elsewhere but […]

Gospel power amidst persecution

by Theodore Wright. Through the blood of Jesus, the power of Christ empowers us to salvation and service to Him. This service comes to the point of sharing the gospel of Christ for the salvation of others. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to […]
