Many will be offended by Jason G. Lutz

And then many will be offended… (Matthew 24:10) I hold professionalism as the highest ideal.  Professionalism is simply having a clear objective and moving toward it in spite of inward and outward pressures away from said objective.  I believe in professionalism we emulate our Lord and Savior.  In His early ministry Christ held a specific all encompassing mission: the…

In My Fathers House by Jason G. Lutz

“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2) Salvation is the most important Thing.  My apologies to those of you in the Open Door class as we have been hammering this point home for a couple of months.  Yet, I truly believe this central Truth of the gospel of Jesus…

My Commandment by Jason G. Lutz

My commandment is this: love one another as I have loved you. (John 15:12) Easter has come and gone and now we stand in the Holy Light of His resurrection.

They carried the traditions of the Hebrews, they preserved the Scripture, they transmitted the belief in the afterlife (not every Jew of that time believed in entirety with God). Beyond this, their…

The Meaning of Life by Jason G. Lutz

On Sunday afternoon, Jaxson asked me “what is the meaning of life?”. I am certain he was not curious of the answer, instead he most likely heard this question on Disney XD. All the same, it is important to establish foundationally realities when the opportunity arises. What is interesting is how easy the answer came and how simple it really is: “the meaning of life is to…

Consider all your Works by Jason G. Lutz

I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. (Psalm 77:12) If a person happens to be interested in health and wellness and pursues readings regarding the subject, her or she will eventually come across writings about the value of meditation. As with most things in popular health and wellness, the body of literature is ambiguous and more often than…
