Soul Detox

"You can’t judge abook by its cover" may be a well-known cliche, but in the case of "Soul Detox: Clean Living in a Contaminated World,” I’d say that you can’t always judge a book by its title, either.

“Soul Detox” is not about cleaning products, an ever-popular cleanse or New Age…

When we become consumed with shame about decisions and actions, belief in God can never evolve into a loving relationship. Over time, we accumulate such a long list of sins that we can’t understand how God could possibly forgive us. Locked in a prison of shame, many Christian Atheists hate their pasts and themselves in equal measure - and there seems to be no hope of escape. – Craig Groeschel, “The Christian Atheist” (via seekeroftruthandtreasure)

What you see is not all there is. Unfortunately, too many people are losing battles they don’t even know are being fought.

When Jesus called his first followers, he recruited tax collectors, uneducated fishermen, and dangerous revolutionaries. Notice who Jesus did not call: not one rabbi, scribe, or priest. Not one Pharisee or Sadducee, nor any other person from the formal religious establishment of the day. When he chose friends, Jesus surrounded himself with the lonely, the broken, and the overlooked. God is calling you to be part of his church, to be his church. If you don’t feel like you’re good enough, then you’re exactly who he’s looking for.

A pastor once asked his church to pray that God would shut down a neighborhood bar. The whole church gathered for an evening prayer meeting, pleading with God to rid the neighborhood of the evils of this bar. A few weeks later, lightning struck the bar and it burned to the ground. Having heard…

Why work so hard to be normal, when God created you to stand out?

Most normal people believe that God will never give us more than we can handle. The problem is, God never said that. He said he would not let you be tempted without a way out, but he never said he wouldn’t give you more than you can handle. Ready for a weird take on this?

God will often give you more than you can handle so you can learn to depend on Him rather than on yourself. If you could handle everything yourself, you wouldn’t need God.
