Are Christian leaders really starting to hyphenate the Gospel?

"Phil,
It took me over five minutes just to read your distress signal.  So, now I’m on overtime @ 1½ times my hourly rate!  You should be praising God right now that my Christian hourly rate is $0.00/hour.

"As Christianity is Re-imagined…
these words are BROUGHT FORTH in my mind.
Every day: Repeat and ponder “hell” – then never say it out loud when sharing faith – Christ came with an OFFER, not a threat (John 12:47).

Evanlogical confession.

If you make a grievous mistake, then realize it, shouldn’t you correct it?

Organized religion made such a mistake when it officially set December 25th as Christmas.  This overlapped a pagan feast, now called the winter solstice.

Over the succeeding centuries, Christmas was infiltrated by pagan practices.  Fir trees were incorporated in the 16th century.  Father Christmas arrived in the latter part of the 19th century.

HUMAN MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ABSOLUTE COMPLETE FAITH IN CHRIST

Sharing Evanlogicalism. How sure are you of your faith in Christ? 100%?  Really? Having TRUE knowledge, now that’s a 100% sure thing. Faith?  If faith = TRUE knowledge, why do we differentiate these two concepts? Now, how sure are you of your faith in Christ? Even the strongest faith can only approach 99.9999999…% Don’t lie to yourself.  With faith, humans always have an iota of doubt. It is also Written, Somewhere, that God is not fond of lying either.

A CHRISTMAS GIFT GIVING IDEA

Sharing Evanlogicalism:  Easing Guilt. What goes around, comes around. Every spring and winter, in its journey around our sun, the planet earth comes to a point of equal day and night.  In the northern hemisphere, the vernal equinox happens on or around June 21st.  On or around December 21st, it is the autumnal equinox for the “northerners:”  the start of winter. Long ago, the winter equinox was actually celebrated as the winter solstice.  Celebrated because sun light increased daily thereafter…

Sharing Evanlogical Math.

Organized church has long taught that Jesus was fully God and fully man, except He did not sin.  This is not in the Bible.  It was decided by a vote of men in a council.  This concept is not Scriptural.  However, the council vote may have been Inspired by God.  While we “challenge” Scripture for edification, edicts of men are subject to other Spirit Led challenges.   God created everything in the universe, including on the earth.  Thus, Evanlogicals believe that mathematics was Invented by…
