Deconstructing Jesus

Many over the years have tried to diminish Jesus' divinity, miracles and claims. The latest to try this is Basic Instinct Director, Paul Verhoeven. He spent 20 years researching Jesus and all he can come up with is theory and conjecture about Jesus. Yet, I'm sure his claims will be met with much fanfare by the secular world that seeks to remove God from their lives. However, no serious scholar will even consider the validity of his claims because they are just speculation. No credible evidence has ever been produced to show that Jesus did not resurrect, or that He did not perform the miracles the Gospels document. Even secular accounts show that Jesus lived and his followers were being persecuted by the Romans. Josephus and others wrote concerning Jesus and His followers. This is covered in the last chapter of the book. Not to mention the fact that Christianity took off after the crucifixion of its leader and extreme persecution of its followers. Peter withdrew in fear when Jesus was arrested and spoke the first sermon after the resurrection. See my sermon at http://kmorvant.podomatic.com/entry/2008-03-23T12_00_26-07_00 for Peter's turnaround. They can speculate all they want, but they can't diminish Jesus.

Humanism vs. Faith

If you want an example of how a secular humanist views a devout, faithful Christian, then go to http://twocitiesblog.blogspot.com/2006/03/church-of-christ-minister-endures-cnn.html

Here, CNN's Nancy Grace attacks the faith of Rubel Shelly, Church of Christ minister. People no longer want to follow God as He commands, but by their own rules if they regard Him at all.

Victory In Jesus!

This blog was created to illustrate the moral and faith decay in modern society. However, if you need a boost to your walk with Christ, then check out my podcast at

Can You See Me Now?

The latest trend in teen dating is to send naked pictures taken on their cell phones and sending it to someone they are interested in dating. Our children are progressing toward animal-like mating behavior and this is the latest evidence of it. Studies show that teens are more interested in image and fame rather than the more important aspects of dating such as character. It may make the news, but what do the parents of these teens think about it. Some will be appalled, but there will be some that will say that they are just being teens and no different from their peers. When these teens grow up, what will they be doing?

Baby = Punishment

One of the signs of the breakdown of society is how it treats its vulnerable citizens. Presidential candidate, Barak Obama recently stated ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNzmly28Bmg ) that if his daughters made a mistake, he would not punish them with a baby. In other words, they could have an abortion. I guess he would punish the innocent baby rather than the guilty parties. Our constitution states that we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but they find a way to distort the laws to fit their selfish lifestyles. This is part of the death culture that has become a part of who we are today. The real news is that it did not hurt him in the polls. It would seem that most of American society feels the same way. How long before other inconvenient persons are eliminated because they can't defend themselves. Those with power over them will decide that they would not want to live that way if they could speak and euthanize them. Are they helping the person, or getting rid of a problem for themselves?
