My Personal Christian Blog

Thanks for sliding into my blog site. This blog bog is a spin-off from my website at Call me a Night Owl, as my full-time mission and hobby are jabbering from midnight until 8 a.m.ish with chatter bugs across the world. Hoot, hoot! Being a retired newspaper guy and a Curious George, I've written and assembled a whack of stuff that I hope you'll find interesting and thought-provoking. Check out the Stories bar on the right side, below, for all my articles - from my web site and this blog.

If a person has not personally accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, perhaps it is because of one of these reasons make us nervous:

1. We are afraid of ridicule.

Luke 9:26 says, "For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels."  

2. We are turned off by the inconsistencies of people who claim to be believers in Jesus Christ.

Romans 14:12  says, "So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God."

3. We are nervous that Christ will expect too much of us?

Mark 8:36 says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

4. Because of our past, we may doubt that Jesus will accept us as we are. We may feel we have crossed a line.

John 6:36 says, "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."

Isaiah 1:18 says, "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."

5. We may feel we are likely going to Heaven because we have given life our best shot and God ought to be satisfied with that.

James 2:10 says, "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”

6. We might think that we have a long time to settle up with God.

Proverbs 27:1 says, "Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth."

Pope Francis blew it when he said July 29, 2013, that he will not “judge” gays and lesbians. He waved it off.

Instead of articulating the words of the Bible, the pope waffled and said, “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?”

The Bible condemns homosexuality. Jesus Christ said marriage was between a man and woman, and we should follow His lead and judge against that way too.

From Genesis to Revelation, God’s Word calls homosexuality a perversion and a certain sign that God’s judgment is on the way to the culture that openly celebrates it as “normal. We are certainly not to celebrate what is condemned.


Leviticus 18:22  says, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.“

1 Kings 14:24  says,” And there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations that the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.”

Jude 1:7 says, “Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.”

Romans 1:26-28 says, “For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-11says, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”

In Matthew 19:4-6 Jesus said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh”? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate."

Christ never used the word homosexual or lesbian. But by defining marriage as between one male and one female, Jesus effectively condemned all other arrangements.

The popes are leaders who too often are no shows when it comes to quoting scripture.
