In thinking of Christianity and its requirements as a belief system, what immediately come to mind as overall principles? Faith? Love? Purity? In addition to these simplified concepts, I would add one that perhaps supersedes the others: 
choice. Although Christianity is predicated, of course, on repentance from sin and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the fact that underlies all Christian dogma is choice.  

Sidestepping slightly into the realm of politics, what is the political ideology of choice? What political ideology emphasizes freedom and human liberty above all else? Libertarianism. Simply put, libertarianism is the ideology of liberty, the rightwing belief that the government should be minimized to its smallest possible size and scope, only large enough to protect its citizens’ natural rights of life, liberty, and property.

What we could never do, God did!

As Abraham walked with his son to the mountain where he was to sacrifice him, Abraham’s son asked, “The fire and wood are here, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?” Abraham replied, “God will provide Himself a lamb.” Christians believe this statement was prophetic and pointed to an event in which God would sacrifice a perfect lamb that would bring about reconciliation between sinful man and Himself.

We as Americans are a mixed blend of flavors.  We are like a well-flavored salsa that’s been created with an assortment of ingredients providing texture, flavor, and color, a diverse population that offers its own unique profile layer as one might savor the personality that is acquired the more one tastes of it. Just as the variety of ingredients supplements the ultimate experience as a whole as if you tasted a salsa that developed new flavors as you chewed it, so does the influx of ethnicities within our culture ‘salsify’ our society.

Ramadan, Day 13: Contemplating the Oneness of God

Fasting is a time of contemplation. A time to humble yourself before the One God.

by Steve Schlichter


Fasting is a time of contemplation. A time to humble yourself before God. A time to search yourself and confess attitudes and actions that are contrary to the nature of God. Those we commit that we should not and those we omit that we should do. The more we understand God's nature, the more humbling and meaningful our expressions of love and worship can be. God is one. He is unique and indivisible, as these verses bare witness:

       


Moses: "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!" (Deuteronomy 6:4)

Jesus: "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD.'" (Mark 12:29)

Paul: "Now a mediator is not for one party only; whereas God is only one." (Galatians 3:20)

James: "You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder." (James 2:19)
