We Say Goodbye, One More Time

We never know when it will be the last time. Make your words count in this life to your loved ones. You or they can be gone in a flash.

J.S. Park: Hospital Chaplain, Skeptical Christian

When they wheeled him in, the doctors said it was already too late. They put him on an iron lung, and the only thing left to do was let his mother decide on his organs.

He was young, good-looking, tall and strapping, face beat up from meth. His mother had given him countless chances and a free bed, but he had relapsed every time, back to the muse and to back alley corners and then crawling home again. His mom finally kicked him out. Shortly after, he found one of those hideouts to do his meth in peace. He fell down a flight of stairs. Traumatic brain injury. A brawl, possibly. Someone had called an ambulance and left him there.

The only thing the hospital could do was stuff him full of tubes to keep him breathing. There was no brain activity. His head was held by a neck brace…

The Significant Contributions of Christianity to Healthcare and Education

WOW! We need to hear about more of this

Christian Apologist

In 2001, 75% of those polled by the Pew Research Center indicated that religious institutions have played a role in solving important social problems (Stonestreet, 2016), yet by 2016, the percentage had dropped significantly to only 58% (Lipka, 2016). This figure is disappointing, suggesting that the memories or knowledge of positive Christian influences have diminished. Accordingly, the intention of the following blog is to identify and share the significant contributions of Christianity to healthcare and education.

Healthcare in Ancient Times

In the Croatian Medical Journal, Tatjana Buklijas (2008) states that “while institutions providing some form of medical treatment existed in ancient Greece and Rome, neither of these cultures organized community care for the sick, poor, and needy (Risse, 1999). A radical change occurred in the late Antiquity, with the rise of Christianity, which embraced charity as one of its basic doctrines. The first hospitals were founded when Christianity became the…

EARTH DAY

Hi, my faithful followers. God, has blessed us with a great planet. We don’t always get it right (things like before the EPA existed and air pollution and dumps were horrible). Anyhow, this is not about a political point today.

See, God before all time and planets existed He was and He is the one responsible for your being here on planet earth and my being here on planet earth. Think about that. Of all the other planets and solar systems out there God put you here! Where you don’t need a mask to breathe (maybe at night you do or you may use oxygen sometimes) but day to day you can take a deep breathe of air and not have to think that you are going to die right then because you are poisoning yourself.
For me I want to focus on the Creator (GOD)of all of the worlds, the animals, and the plant life (which right now is driving me insane cause most things are in bloom here in AZ) and He created each of us human beings. No we did not come from any monkey sorry. In the book of Genesis it speaks about how God created night and day and the planets and all of how He spoke things into existence and than for us humans he made us from the dust of the ground and breathed into us life (He created man and then woman).

So, today I want to celebrate my Creator (GOD) in ways of stewardship of the planet. So, I recycle, when I do that it saves trees, and plants and other things. I do not liter when I am driving. When I was a kid growing up they used to have a commercial on tv that had an Indian coming down a mountain on a horse and he was crying because of the liter on the highway. Every time I go out and clean up the trash on my street I think of that picture.

So, today in celebration of Earth Day (Creation Day). I want to celebrate my Creator (GOD) here is a video of what a cell looks like under a 3D microscope and this video is a cell taken from the inner ear of a zebra fish. Which is soooo cool.

And the song So Will I

Isaiah 53: 4-5

Surely He took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered Him punished by God, stricken by Him, and afflicted.

But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.

Thank you for being here today, Friends.

I’m a Sinner, But I’m Saved! Thank God!

We are all on the same level field when it comes to being a sinner. How we respond to God in the moment is what He looks at.

The Recovering Legalist

My friends, since I am still recovering from surgery to my right shoulder, typing is still quite painful after a few moments. I thought about a few things I wanted to write, but then decided a re-post was in order.

So, I went back a few years into the archive, and that’s when I found this post. I little voice inside me said, “Post that one again.” Therefore, I hope you read the whole thing; it might be a word from the Lord for you.


I Still Sin

(updated)

It may come as a shock to some of you, but I still sin. Yes, this preacher still makes mistakes. You see, I am no better than anyone else, even though there used to be a time when I thought I was.

Years ago, when I was a really legalistic son-of-a-gun, it wasn’t uncommon for me to look down my nose at…

Thank you can be a healing word

God can use that Thank you to do some serious healing.

thanks for being you.gif

Not all of us are as cool as this dog in expressing their thanks, but it’s the thought that counts.

I have been asking myself this question: How often do I say, “Thank you?” I’m not talking about the kind of thank you that is said in a rote kind of way as if we are saying what is socially expected. The thank you I’m referring to is one that comes from the heart. This thank you is filled with a spirit of gratitude.

When I was in my early twenties a dear friend named Bill Pye gave me a brown leather Bible. It wasn’t my birthday, nor was it Christmas. I asked Bill, “What’s this for?” He smiled and said, “Kevin, that’s for being you.” I still have that Bible.

Bill was such a close friend. He taught me how to work with the abused, addicted and rejected. He…
