Why Do The Wicked Prosper?

Because this is a broken and fallen world, there are a lot of wicked people, and because some of them prosper greatly in regards to wealth, fame or power it is assumed that they are being blessed by God, but God is never pleased by wickedness and He never blesses anyone for being wicked because in order to be wicked a person must disobey God.

What Is The Meaning Of Life?

What is the meaning of life? That is a question that is often asked, and many people falsely believe that life only has meaning if they are to leave their mark on the world, but King Solomon discovered that being rich, famous and influential does not give your life meaning, only God does.

Lauren Daigle and Why Christians are so Terribly Judgemental

Christians have a reputation of being judgemental people, and the sad truth is that the way many of us are living and the way we are treating others is one major reason why the reputation persists. Christians are, all to often, judgemental and one of today’s popular Christians to judge is the singer Lauren Daigle.

Rite of Passage

Most cultures have a rite of passage celebration or ritual that youth must go through before making the transition into adult life in the society, and when the youth does not have an appropriate rite of passage that is overseen by a responsible adult they go in search for their own, often to disastrous consequences.

Prophets and Polygamy

Polygamy is one of the hot button topics in the LDS Church and is often misrepresented, both by those inside and outside the Church. Because plural marriage was not legal in America the practice led to all sorts of problems with the Church and eventually led to the death of the Church’s first prophet.

IT’S OK TO NOT BE OK

I am not sure why, but as Christians we often feel that we have to pretend that everything is absolutely perfect with our lives and will not admit when we need help, but church is not a place for perfect people but rather a place for hurting and broken people to heal.

The Single’s Ward

This episode is a about some of my experiences when I was in a singles ward and a little about the movie The Singles Ward. The basic idea behind a singles ward is to get young LDS people married off as quickly as possible and to keep them out of trouble until they do get married.

Honor Your Elders

There is so much to be gained by having a friendships with people who are significantly older or younger than you are, and we owe respect to those who are older than us, especially those who we are related to and those who served in the military.

Feel Good Christianity

There is an alarming trend today that reduces the Almighty God to simply a friend who wants us to be happy with ourselves. God Created us for his glory, not ours, and Jesus died on the cross to save us from the penalty of sin, not to make us feel better about ourselves.

I Have This Hope

When I was without faith I was also without hope because I felt that life was unkind and unfair, which it is, and I thought that there was no intrinsic purpose to life and therefore life was utterly meaningless. As a result I felt that all suffering was also meaningless. After coming to Christ I have a better outlook on life, I am happier, and I have a hope for this life and for the eternity.
