Father Jörgensen’s Questionings

A week ago, I was asked to baptize an infant later that morning. I have misgivings about it because nowhere in the Bible is there any such thing as infant baptism. Jesus wasn't baptized until He was thirty years old. As a baby, He was dedicated to the Lord. Last night I read every scripture …

Walking in God’s Truth

Vindicate me, O Lord, For I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in the Lord;I shall not slip. Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; Try my mind and my heart. For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth - Psalm 26:1-3, NKJV When we walk in God's Truth, we will never stumble. Our steps …

Caught

He watched them. His boss and his woman. How long had this been going on? How could she do this to him? He thought she loved him. Was she playing him all along? Never once did he suspect that there was anything going on between those two yet there they were all over each other. …

God Takes Care of His People

Whenever one of us is in trouble, God intercedes.  He takes care of us.  The psalmist testifies, "Who will protect me from the wicked?  Who will stand up for me against evildoers?  Unless the Lord had helped me, I would soon have died.  I cried out, 'I'm slipping!' and Your unfailing love, O Lord supported …

What God Wants

If you want to know what God wants, the best place to find out is in the Bible.  One morning I was reading one of the psalms and God clearly spelled out what He wanted from His people.  "O my people, listen as I speak.  Here are my charges against you, O Israel: I am …

The Confession

"Darius, I want you to be honest with me, no matter how painful it's going to be for both of us." He tried to appear calm but his heart was racing. The moment he dreaded was here. "All right." "Did you go to the beach this morning?" "Yes." "Were you alone?" "Yes." "Are you having …

My Co-worker

This week is the first week I'm working from home because of COVID-19.  It's been challenging because I liked going into the office and interacting with my co-workers.  I miss the face to face contact, going for walks, lunch and coffee breaks.  I miss goign for my morning jog or to the gym but I …

Some Friend

She was walking to work when she spotted Dexter's car.  He didn't see her.  Even if he did, what would he do?  She couldn't imagine him telling the driver to stop so that he could talk to her.  Perhaps if Meghan was with her, he would.  It was a slap in the face when they …

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye - Psalm 32:8 From the time we are born, our parents are there to care for us.  We don't have to worry about anything.  They provide for our basic needs.  As we get older, they …

Jesus’s Birth

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder.  And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace - Isaiah 9:6 Jesus' birth didn't happen exactly as one would expect.  Matthew tells us how it came about.  Mary, Jesus' mother was a …
