Our local news paper the Lander News Journal has a “Religious” section. We have received the honor of having a number of articles published in this section of our paper. We thought we would share these articles with you. In the articles below, we have attempted to present the gospel to a variety of individuals.
Some topics take more than 1000 words to explain. Books are written in chapters and sometimes articles have to be in a series of smaller chunks. Meesim is just such a series. Click here to see the series on Meeism – what about me. Christians are increasingly worldly in their life, operation, worship and even their view of God. This series challenges modern day views of Christianity by asking the Christian to consider God first not self.

She releases control of a most beloved possession, a Son. She releases him to the one person she knows loves him more than herself, God.
Thank you for your sacrifice. We all suffer loss fighting for freedom. None more than the friend in the foxhole or family at home. It is an honor and a privilege to call you brothers in arms.
The world’s theocracies have always resulted in autocracy. This due to man’s propensity to gather power unto himself through every action.
Sin brings death and separation from God. Jesus brings eternal life and reconciles and reestablishes our relationship with God.
This is a picture recovered from a camera that records the Tsunami coming ashore in 2004. 300,000 people died this day. This is but one example of the fractured and tortured world we live in. Many ask “Where is God” if he loves us.
This was an attempt to open people to discuss things. We should never be afraid to hear from others, regardless of whether we WANT to hear what they have to say. The fear we experience when people challenge is simply one indication of our societal conditioning. What we find today is a reversal of the prejudice once experienced by the minorities in society. Where, and wrongly so, sexually deviant individuals, racial minorities and females were discriminated against. Today it is acceptable to treat Christians or anyone that questions another’s thoughts or life choices.
This is the picture of the Constitutional Convention at prayer. Before this their efforts had stagnated, they were deadlocked and unable to proceed. This is a direct result of Benjamin Franklin’s admonishment for the convention not inviting God to superintend the proceedings. Not surprisingly, the convention went forward successfully after prayer was instituted as a regular portion. God, our founders knew, was important to their success. We should submit to their wise counsel. This article (published 5/1/13 click here) on the National Day of Prayer May 2nd 2013 describes the importance of Prayer, inviting our Lord and Savior to superintend our efforts.

Revelation 21:8 says, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” The Moral Gospel, submitted 3/12/13 describes a condition responsible for deceiving many in Satan’s kingdom. This article discusses these failures. Think about it, if God NEEDED you to do something to get into Heaven, would he really be “god.” This is another humanistic attempt at defining God in terms man can control.
Oxymoronic? Cliche’? Reality? Or just some campaign slogan that worked. Change – Published 3/7/13 is about the foolishness of “Change.” We may want change, but without discussing specifics on what that should look like, change can result in autocracy.
Typical of political and many scientific consensus decisions. As closed minded as Spaniards of Columbus’ day pseudo science, pseudo Christianity, and pseudo statesmanship fail our society and their respective disciplines.

I know this seems strong, but it is true. Man’s natural tendency is to gather power unto himself. Conservatism is a political movement. Christianity is a salvation movement.

One God, many trucks. Trucks and God – Published 10/3/12 is about the best manual for the job. It also shows that your doctrine definitely defines your worship.
I’m with you man. You just wanna scream, “Just change this thing!” Jesus was a man who gave himself for mankind. This article describes how Jesus can empthaize and know man’s struggles.

This is love, to give oneself for another selflessly. Love in Religion – Published 3/27/13 is about exactly that, what the love of Christ is compared to the religion of man. They are not the same.
Charles Blondin crossing Niagara Falls. Would you trust him? What is true faith? That is answered in this article. Most have to admit, they do not have it. Would you get in the wheelbarrow? Real Belief – Published 1/25/12
If faith is in things not seen, why can works accomplish it? They cannot. This is the argument here. Works are many things. Take a look and see what they may include. Faith and Works – Published 11/23/11
Man’s idea of religion is a kaleidoscope of stuff. to man it means worshiping “god,” whatever God you choose. Cool hugh?! Not to God. He wants a realtionship with you. That is the discussion in “The Difference between religion and God” – Published 9/21/11
God’s rights include manipulating these spectacular galactic displays whenever and however He wants. From these cosmic displays of power to the very existence of man, God has every right.

God and His Rights – Published part 1, 4/27/11 and part 2 5/4/11 discusses the foolishness of pop culture, the pseudo science of today, and the failed attempts at man’s claim to self-sufficiency. Satan fell because he thought he could be god. What does that say about mankind thinking he governs his own destiny.

This is the reason for perpetual hope. Man now has hope over death, hope over Satan’s grip, hope for eternal life! The Perpetual Hope of Christmas – not published
The difference between Islam in history and Islam now is what they hold in their hands. In neither case is it their bible. In every case it is a form of violence.

We work to introduce our community to the truths of other false religions as well. The following are articles submitted to our editor for that purpose.
