Prayer Trolls

Posted June 7th, 2017 by Gene

I have had my share of internet trolls, and I see how they operate.   I have been battling an attack for over 3 years now, and I will say that trying to maintain spiritual truth, while your mind and body are racked with pain, can be a real challenge.   I try to get […]

The Loveless Church

Posted December 29th, 2015 by Gene

As these End Times seem to be quickly upon us, I feel compelled to look at The Seven Letters to The Seven Churches as written in the Book of Revelation. The point of this, is strictly for personal evaluation, but I may reflect on the actions and reactions of others to keep me focused. The […]

Where Has The Boldness in The Church Gone?

Posted May 13th, 2014 by Gene

I have been preaching to myself a lot lately, and there are a couple notes and points to my sermon… 1) Do I have the faith that moves mountains? If faith is “anything that I believe enough to act upon”, why am I not acting as if I genuinely believe? My faith should move me […]

God’s Wheat & Satan’s Weeds

The Church Was Warned Not To Fall Asleep Matthew 25:1-10 The Parable of the Ten Virgins 25 “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3 The foolish ones took their […]

Traditional Marriage

Posted March 15th, 2013 by Gene

I think what people really need to understand is that marriage was set up by God to be between a man and a woman. It is within that union, that sex is made pure. It is within the differences of that union that balance is kept.What God has set up is perfect, and can never […]

Gifts, Bankers, and No Bailout for You

Posted July 4th, 2011 by Gene

  The other night, I was reading in my Bible as I do every night, and came across Matthew 25:14-30. This was a scripture that I have read countless times, but one thing stuck out to me this evening. The reference that I am referring to is The Parable of The Talents. There is a reason […]

Where’s The Worship?

Posted May 22nd, 2014 by Gene

When you look at the meaning of the word “worship” you see other words like adoration and reverence.

“Pastor Needs A Spittoon”

Posted June 6th, 2011 by Gene

Can I say it? I love my church! We are a very casual church at AGO, and that is primarily because I am not a suit wearing kind of pastor. You will not find me preaching with a tie (or even clean shoes). I often tell my congregation to be ready, because one day I […]

Real World Frustrations

Posted January 27th, 2017 by Gene

As I sit here next to my beautiful bride, I can’t help but sense her frustration over the events at the “women’s” march last weekend.   Honestly the frustration is felt by many people, and I think it needs to be pinpointed to the evil truth.   We have a minority class of self educated […]
