Coronavirus: Is It from God?

Coronavirus is becoming a significant concern that is causing fear in many people. When something like this happens, people wonder why and sometimes falsely attribute natural disasters and epidemics to God. Is God responsible for Coronavirus? We can look at the life of Jesus to get the answer to this question. Jesus had one response to sickness: he cured it. We should consider God the healer of sickness, not the bringer of sickness. This video explores God’s work in the world and how it relates to Coronavirus and to your life.

Jesus: The Undercover Boss

Philippians chapter 2 describes Jesus as God who came in human likeness. Jesus was like a CEO who goes undercover and allows himself to be treated as an entry level employee. Jesus temporarily left his high position and took the lowest place as a servant. He did that for you and me. This video explains Philippians chapter 2:3-11 using the modern day analogy of an undercover boss.
Philippians 2:3-11 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

If You Don’t Believe in God, Eventually You Have to Get Off His Couch

Sometimes people say, “I’m a good person, so won’t God let me into heaven even if I didn’t believe in him?” Well, how long would you let someone live in your house and use all your stuff if that person didn’t acknowledge your existence at all? This video talks about why you need to acknowledge God and make the decision to be part of his family. If you aren’t part of the family, you don’t get to stay. Eventually you’ll have to get off God’s couch.

Jesus Loves the LGBT+ Community

An evangelical Bible thumping Christian talks about God’s love for the LGBT+ community and gives Biblical reasons for supporting the LGBT+ community and same-sex marriage. If you are part of the LGBT+ community, you have a place in the family of God.

Most verses from the Bible are read from the New International Version 2011.

Million Dollar Button

On a regular basis I get comments asking, “Why can’t you keep your religious beliefs to yourself?” Or, “Why is this religious garbage on Youtube?” This short video is a response to these questions. The million dollar button is a simple analogy to help people understand why I won’t be quiet about Jesus. Of course, the million dollar button would cause utter chaos economically, but the offer Jesus makes is an offer everyone in the world could benefit from without limit. Thanks for watching!
