What about eternal security?

As to Eternal Security. I am not sure. There are proof texts on both sides.

These days I am tending toward the belief that we can lose our salvation. I believe that God honors our freedom beyond all else .

When Paul lists those things […]

Do we need to ask God to forgive us anymore of our sins?

Absolutely. I think the value of my book is it’s emphasis on seeing our faith as fundamentally a relationship rather than a religion. When I look at the issue of forgiveness and repentance, I think in terms of the effect my behavior is having on my relationship with someone I love.

In regard to God, I […]

Does the Holy Spirit convict Christians of Sin?

Yes, regularly.

And to answer “Does God see our sin?”

Why I wrote the book.

I grew up under religion. It almost ended any chance of finding God. Religion is a treadmill of performance with ever increasing speed and inclination. My journey toward God was one of stepping off of the treadmill – no easy task. When I finally discovered that God wanted a relationship with me more than simply […]

Hear what people are saying who have previewed my new book.

 

The pre-release reviews I have received are far more positive than anything I expected or hoped for. Isn’t God good? The review I value most is one in which the writer said she felt the presence of God as she read the book. What more can I ask or hope […]

Is God always pleased with me?

We always have His acceptance but we do not always have His approval. His disapproval promotes our growth in holiness as does His approval.

Even though we are called to rest we are also called to strive? What are your thoughts?

It depends on how you define striving. Much of what we do “for” God is not what He has asked us to do. When we undertake work which He has not asked us to do, we end up working in our own power and fulfilling human potential rather than accomplishing His work which reveals His […]
