Is it a sin for a Christian to smoke pot? This video from Wretched Radio via the Shepherds Conference gives us a great answer, not only to pot but alcohol too!

Saying No To Halloween

Pastor Jim McClarty“When you have the Spirit of God in you, when the Spirit of Christ takes up residence in you for the first time in your life you will have the capacity to say no to things you never could say no to before, because you simply didn’t have the ability to deny yourself.”

“The true genuine freedom is not just free from the law and not just free from the restrictions and condemnations that came from the law,  but you are also free from your own simple depraved mind and proclivities so that you can now say no to the things you never used to be able to resist before. But you also have the freedom to say no to those things that offend your conscience.”

When the Spirit of Christ takes up residence
in you for the first time in your life
you will have the capacity to say no!

and that’s a beautiful thing!

Where Have I Been?

Me and my BibleI have started to miss posting everyday after taking a break the past 8 months or so. Many of you have ask where I have been…  Well,  I have been focused on my reading and studying and I have gotten quite attach to my Bible again, my Kindle App, Bible App and Logos on my phone and computer. The first thing I wanted to do in the past was to get a post out no matter what, even if I had to forgo my reading of the bible and studying. I realized the The Bible Christian had become something bigger than communion with my Savior and my God, with my reading and studying and that just can’t be.

John6I had to become more disciplined in my approach to my everyday routine, so back in July 2012,  I started Professor Grant Horner’s Bible reading system and then ask my friend Matt to join me and we read through the bible in eight months talking to each other about what we had learned that day via text and over coffee once a week and it was so fruitful that at times I had completely forgotten about The Bible Christian blog. I know I have lost some people who visit my blog regularly as my visits are way down, but you know what? Numbers can’t give me what I gain this past year, not even close.

Romans 8-28-30I also had decided to read 1 or 2 Chapters a day in any book that I might be reading, right now it so happens to be The World-Tilting Gospel by Dan PhillipsI continue to study the book of Romans as I teach through this book in Sunday School class and now we are in Chapter 8:28-31. This Chapter 8 is so pivotal as a believing Christian as it speaks to the believers security in Christ, the order of Salvation and our victory in Christ. I recently have joined Twitter you can follow me up top⇧and read my progress as a disciple of Christ and what I am learning in my walk with God.

Lord_teach_meThat’s what I have been doing!

I have made a some changes in my life and with this site. That’s me sitting up top⇧with FIRE In My Bones. My desire has always been to proclaim His word without compromise and if I do that everything will take care of itself.  Expect to hear from me more often as I have placed my priorities in order, I hope and with the Lord’s strength I will continue on the right path to bring Him the glory and Him the glory alone with this blog and with my life.

and that’s a beautiful thing!

My Bride, My Wife and My Friend

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. 10 For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

I still remember that September morning back in 1979 when I first saw her walk up the junior class hallway in high school… I knew then that this beautiful girl was going to be mine and soon after she was. I took a turn for the better that day, I believe by the providence of God my life was change forever and Maria was going to be a huge part of it, and to think we’ve been together ever since is truly amazing to me. I have always believed God directs our paths, so to Him be the glory!

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

It was just a little over three years later we married at twenty and this june will be our thirtieth wedding anniversary. You see it was Maria that God used to alter my life from the wrong path I was heading down and It was the grace of God that altered both our lives from death to life and saved us for eternity with Him. We have always done it together, all the good times, all the bad times, all the hardship and suffering we’ve been through, it was together and only by God’s grace and strength we get through it together…  to God be the glory!

Today my wife turns, well she says she’s still 49 so you do the math, that way I can say I didn’t say a word.

I don’t know who wrote this but who ever you are thank you…

So to my bride, my wife and my friend… 

A friend is
someone who is concerned
with everything you do…

A friend is
someone who is concerned
with everything you think

A friend is
someone to call upon
during good times

A friend is
someone to call upon
during bad times

A friend is
someone who understands
whatever you do

A friend is
someone who tells you the truth
about yourself

A friend is
someone who knows
what you are going through at all times

A friend is
someone who refuses to listen
to gossip about you

A friend is
someone who supports you
at all times

A friend is
someone who does not
compete with you

A friend is
someone who is genuinely happy for you
when things go well

A friend is
someone who tries to cheer you up
when things don’t go well

A friend is
an extension of yourself
without which
you are not complete

Thank you for being my friend

Happy Birthday

I Love You Maria!

and that’s a beautiful thing!

Today The Bible Christian Turns 5 years old….

But if I say, “I will not remember Him
Or speak anymore in His name,”
Then in my heart it becomes like a burning fire
Shut up in my bones;
And I am weary of holding it in,
And I cannot endure it. Jeremiah 20:9

and that’s a beautiful thing!
Soli Deo Gloria
Lenny
