Is Fear worse than Murder?

Posted on June 10, 2015 at 7:00pm 15 Comments

The Bible tells us "not to fear" 365 times.  That's one for every day of the year.  It must be very important.

It also says, "do not kill". By my count, it's said a lot less often.

  • Is disobey one worse than the other?
  • Are both sinful?

This is a discussion I've had often with myself and others.  As I see it:

  • Murder seems to be a Justice issue; how we relate with each other.
  • Fear is more of a Righteousness issue; how we relate to…

I wish my God was as big as his

Posted on June 5, 2015 at 7:42am 5 Comments

I've got a friend who amazes me.  Not just for what he's done, but what he believes he can do.  His dreams are big.  His doubts and fears are small. 

The reasons why have become obvious to me.  The answer comes not just in his words, but in his actions.  He actually believes he was made in the image of his God. He really believes the promises his God made to him: He is loved, favoured and that he can do all things through Him who empowers him.  If he asks, he knows God will answer.…

FIRE FOR EFFECT: What the Navy taught me about being an Entrepreneur

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 9:30am 1 Comment

One of the classic images of the Navy is the Battleship firing all guns broadside.  You can see the flames and the shock wave.  You can imagine the impact of the 16 inch shells.  Nine projectiles, each weighing as much as your car, simultaneously hit a target over 10 miles.

This iconic image taught me more about marketing than I learned in my MBA.  Since you paid for my college education…

Why April 11th is not Independence Day

Posted on July 4, 2014 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

Have you ever considered that we mark our nation's Independence Day on the day we declared it, not the day someone else acknowledged it?

  • On July 4, 1776 we declared independence
  • On April 11, 1783 Great Britain acknowledged it.

When our founding fathers decided the only thing they were certain was that the following days were going to be tough....very tough.  Yet we remember being free when we decided, not when someone else…

Thanks Tom!  I have been on here for an hour and already feel so welcomed!  Also great to see a fellow Michigander(the mountains were in Calgary).  Thanks for the invite to your group, as I get more acquainted with the site and the community, I will definitely get engaged in some different groups, and offer any feedback I can.
