Be Lifted Out of Adversity

When faced with adversity of any sort, the Christian can take comfort in a God
who declares himself to be God and God alone (Psalm 86:10). The dangers and devices of this
world cannot thwart Him, or even give Him Pause. Read Judges 7 for an example of how God
works. We may still be wary of the sharks but take comfort in the declaration of God.

What Do You Do When God Seems to be Contradicting Himself?


Genesis 22:1-2 is a passage that tests our faith almost as much the hero of the passage (Abraham). Abraham is asked to do the unthinkable, kill his son for God. Even more difficult to reconcile is the fact that God had also revealed that Abraham's son would one day be the start of a very large  family. Somehow Abraham was able to trust God ins spite of the seemingly contradictory ideas and proved himself a man of faith. How do you handle difficult requests from God?

It's important to note the story goes on to say that God did not ask that Abraham kill his son, but that He, God, provided an alternative. In the New Testament, we see God giving His Son and ending the practice sacrifice. In the place of burnt offerings, People of faith are now called on to provide help and comfort to others as a way demonstrating devotion to God.

Temporal versus Eternal - Choosing Well


Moses choose to leave position and wealth to become an outcast (Heb 11:25-27).
In a world that values the present and generally mocks a "pie in the sky" future, 
this seems like a really bad choice. Consider how the legacy of Moses lives on, 
and ask if his choice was really poor.

This is Faith: Believing in the Impossible or Improbable

Misplaced faith is a dangerous thing and can lead to pain and oppression or worse. In Hebrews 11,
Noah is said to have trusted GOD - while it is dangerous to put your faith in preachers or other
leaders, the Bible always speaks of those who trust God as good and faithful people. Sometimes
trust or faith has been proven to be a good thing...Noah's trust is an example. Can you think of 
a time you've either experienced or observed trust being a good thing? Maybe in a parent or spouse, or even in a teacher or doctor? Before we label all faith as bad - we should consider if it is ever good.

What's at Your Core?


If we probe deeply enough, each of us will find the core beliefs that drive our behaviors. Proverbs 23:7 gives insight into how to know who we are. Simply, what you believe, drives what you do. How do your REAL beliefs show up in what you do?

Is Fear Making You Mad?



Much of the anger we see displayed in our social and mainstream 
media seems to be rooted in fear. 1 John 4 shows us a better way. We
can put away mistrust and fear by believing that God who created us
is still in control of every situation.

Looking for Hope? Try Faith


Heb 11 describes faith as a way to make the intangible things of God 
accessible to us. While misplaced faith is a dangerous thing
that can be used to manipulate us, we should consider the strength
of character we can access through a true faith in good things of God.

Welcome


Each of the cartoons on this site is an expression of a sermon I heard in church. As a cartoonist, my method of understanding complex theological topics is to boil them down to simple images.

These images will never do justice to the sermons from which they are derived, but hopefully, they convey at least one aspect of those sermons to you, the reader.

I hope that you gain some benefit from the cartoons and will reuse them in ways that honor Christ.
