Tru Commentary

Imagine going to church and going to Heaven in the same moment!

(April 2014)

Just six months ago 240 souls meet Jesus face to face after going to church. This was the family of Waheed, a gentleman from Pakistan I recently meet in New York City

Waheed said, "There was a Church, Sunday service was going on, and after the service everybody comes out side the church and have some celebration because the church had two children get baptized. And they were standing out side the front of the church compound and there are two suicide bombers walk in and they blow them up. And it was supposed to be a celebration with the food and because of the baptisms. And then over two hundred people died in the same day."

Please pray for Waheed, his family, and the persecuted church across the globe.

A lesbian walks in to a Muslim barbershop and demands a hair cut. (No this is not a Joke)

(March 2014)

You can't make this stuff up.

This recently happened in Canada and now everyone is in an uproar and there's a lawsuit. Because the Lesbian demands a hair cut, the Muslim, because of religious freedom will not cut this woman's hair and so they're at in impasse and of course groups like the human rights campaign, they don't know who to side with on this deal. And so, it's going to be interesting to see how it play out. For a change (sigh of relief) Christians aren't being attacked but isn't it nice to see someone standing up for what they believe. Christian, do you know what you believe? On; who's the only way to heaven, on what is the biblical view of marriage between a man and a women, because YES (even though we laugh at this case) truth matters.

God, the Grammy's, and the Super Bowl!

(February 2014)

This wasn't my Grammy’s Grammy's, I'm gonna tell ya that.

God was blasphemed in a horrific way with this Mass homosexual wedding at the end of the Grammy's and a song, "We can't change", although the chorus of the song does say "we can change".

So which one is it?

If you don't believe in that evil blasphemy that they were celebrating there, then you can change. But if you do believe in it then you can't change.

But God and the Gospel can change a life, a life like Russell Wilson, the wining Quarter Back of the Super Bowl, who gave glory to God. That was so encouraging. What an opportunity to celebrate how good our God is. Even after such a sad night at the Grammy's.

Lift Him up everywhere you go, exalt Him, and watch Him work!

2:14 in 2014 bridging Christmas to New Years

(January 2014)

I can’t think of a better way to connect Christmas to New Years and the New Years Resolution, then with Luke 2:14 “and the angle said: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men”.

That’s our new years resolution here at the Truth Network we want to upward, glorify God and get caught up in his glory, that’s what is all about. Inward have peace on earth, peace of Christ rule in your heart (Col 3). And good will to all men, Goodness, let his goodness flow out of you, that’s outward. So, upward his glory, inward his peace, outward his goodness. Luke 2:14 in 2014. Let’s glorify God together, this year, in 2014.

From a wooden trough, to a wood cross

(December 2013)

We talk so much about the real meaning of Christmas but think about how God almighty humbled himself. That manage scene, which is so often glamorized, was a rough dark stinky place where maybe we wouldn't even let our kids play, with potential infections and animals everywhere. But this is where God came, became a man, Emmanuel God with us, and in the same way he comes in to my stinky rough crazy sinful life and he creates in me the new birth. Oswald Chambers nails it; "His birth in history, his new birth in you”. What a story, that's the meaning of Christmas we say with the angles Luke 2:14 "Glory to God in the Highest" Merry Christmas!

The bombs are dropping on thanksgiving… what are you thankful for?

(November 2013)

This just in; I just found out from our friends at the persecution project foundation that instead of dropping needles and medicine in Nuba, the Government of Sudan just dropped bombs on lots of Christians, Lots of death over there right now as we celebrate thanksgiving.

What are we thankful for? Maybe we are anticipating come anger, some tension with our relatives who we rarely see but this time of the year. Let’s look at this time of year as a time to minister to our family to love others to be truly thankful, “In everything give thanks”. And let’s remember a quick prayer before our thanksgiving feast for our brothers and sisters who are being killed and tortured for the Gospel worldwide. Happy Thanksgiving and we thank God for this freedom we have in Jesus in America.

Trick or Truth, what's your view of Halloween and what does it matter?

(October 2013)

If you are a Christian you know the LORD is the LORD of everyday even Oct 31st. Many celebrate reformation day that day. Many churches have harvest festivals other churches do "trunk or treat" where they do candy at their church facility. Whatever your view is of that day, whether you have nothing to do with it (which I completely respect as a Christian) or whether you give out gospel tracts like many Christians do along with some candy when kids come to your door step.

Remember let that light shine in the darkness 24/7, 12 months out of the year not just on October 31st.

The truth will set you free. Make your light shine. Trick or Truth, the truth is a stake.

Who is closer to God today because you got out of bed this morning?

(July 18th 2013)
Everywhere you go people are hurting. Yes, their may be a big happy smile on their face, but there are challenges in relationship, in marriages, with kids all kinds of issues.

As Christians we are to be considering one another in order to stimulate one another to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24)

Who are you encouraging to be closer to God today? Maybe someone who doesn't know the Lord, you’re challenging them or praying for them. Ask them a simple questions, "How can I pray for you?". Remember when someone gets close to Christ everything changes. So, as an ambassador, as Paul calls us in 2 Corinthian 5, who are we challenging and encouraging to grower closer to God today?

The Man of Steel Movie – What’s the big deal?

(July 1st 2013)The man of Steel out.. why are both Christians and pagans attacking this movie?

Christians are attacking this movie because they are saying so many people are making spiritual and gospel parallels. Pagans are attacking this movie because it actually exalts biblical fatherhood.

Both dads, from Krypton and Earth, love their wives, were faithful to their wives, love their kids and sacrificed everything for the survival of their offspring and their race.

So what's the Big Deal Christians?

Of course you don't get your spirituality from movies! But as believers, in a culture who condemn fatherhood and condemns redemptive values like sacrifice and courage, we need to rejoice and say, yes, I am glad Hollywood made a movie like that let's see more of the man of steel. Better yet let's be men of steel in this dark eroding culture.

Preschoolers and TV - Garbage in, Garbage out

(June 17th 2013)
A recent a study came out stating that, 1/3 of three year olds have a TV in their room. more the 70% of American teenagers do too. Parents just throw the TV in the room. Hey, here's your Christmas Gift, your Birthday Gift.

The pediatricians in this study warned that the presence of a TV, in a teenager’s room, is associated with high rates of substance abuse and sexual activity.

Remember the old statement: "Garbage in, Garbage out"

Parents, what are we doing to protect the precious minds and the hearts of our children? Spending quality time with our kids or quality time with the tube? Let's get that junk out of our kid’s rooms and let's get in their lives and turn out a generation of Godly young men and women, to the glory of God.

Fathers, what are you GIVING for Father's Day?

(June 2013)
William Barclay once said, “We can never afford to forget that we teach our children to call God ‘Father,’ and the only conception of fatherhood that they can have is the conception we give them. Human fatherhood should be molded and modeled on the pattern of the fatherhood of God.”

What are you giving for Father’s Day? I'm giving my wife and four precious daughters a gift a card, something to thank them and bless them on Father's Day. Whoa, wait a second isn't that the opposite. Don't you want to set in lazy chair and watch the game and let them give you all kinds of gifts? (Well actually that is not too bad of a thing)

Our Father God has blessed us with bountiful blessings, why not pattern after him and give this Father's Day instead of just get.

Happy Father's day! We thank our God the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ for the gift of his Son.

The truth about Islam from a man born in a Muslim country

 

(May 2013)
 
Back by popular demand, Usama Dakdok! Usama, tell us the truth about Islam, and why it's so important that Christians wake up and share the Gospel with their Muslim friends. 
 
"First of all", said Usama Dakdok, "we must know that Islam is not what I share with you or what some Muslim shares with you, but it is the writing of the word of Allah in the Koran and the command of Muhammad in the Hadith." Usama Dakdok continues  "Islam is not a loving and peaceful religion because, simply, there is not one verse in the Koran or one statement of Muhammad in the Hadith that teaches love or peace" 
 
 
For more information Usama Dakdok and how to share the Gospel with your Muslim friend visit thestraightway.org
 
Share the Love of Jesus with a Muslim friend today.

Beheading little babies or abusing dogs

which one will get more media attention?
(April, 2013)
 
Who is Michael Vick?  Heard of him. Just who is  Dr Kermit Gosnell?
 
NFL quarter back Michael Vick had wall to wall coverage from every network for animal cruelty , but according to The Investor's Business Daily quote : "Those who get their news from the three major networks have probably not heard of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, now on trial in Philadelphia, charged with seven counts of first degree murder." Gosnell performed thousands of late term abortions, also known for delivering a live, viable baby and then killing the child by cutting its spinal cord---even our so-called Christian president refuses to comment on this!  Pastors dare not mention this, its just another 'political' issue. What's going on here?? What's happened to us?
 
What you can do?
 
Google Dr Gosnell and this barbaric case. Spread  the word and pray that God will have mercy on the soul of our nation---a Nation that not only ignores such child Murder, but actually pays for it and cheers it on!!
