I have decided to do something in honor of the 500-year anniversary since Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door at Wittenburg Church in Germany (1517).
Each month, I will be releasing a new list of theological points of reformation, which the modern church must wrestle toward. Here is one of the lists:
My personal word for this year was "International Influence."
I began the year with the first fast I had done in about seven years! (27 days of January) This led to some major revelations and insights for the future of Welton Academy. In obedience to this direction, we announced a major change on Leap Day (Feb 29). Rather than creating a degree program, we were called to create a training track for building Five-Fold leaders. This also required building a team of five leaders to help create this.
Well, the US election has come and gone. Some are angry and disappointed; others are elated. Regardless of who won, I was going to put out this same blog. It is always important for us to keep a thankful heart. In good times and bad, thankfulness is a super power that Believers should especially be flowing in. And each year in the states, we have our Thanksgiving Day feast and remind ourselves to be thankful. Yet still, it is so easy to focus on the negative. So whether we see our circumstances as good or bad, the only way through it is by activating thankfulness in our lives as believers.

It has become routine in October for some Christian schools to send out letters warning parents about the evils of Halloween, and it has become equally routine for me to be asked questions about this matter.
Typically when “self-control” is mentioned, most people picture gritting one’s teeth and forcing oneself to do what is right even though everything within wants to do the opposite. This exhausting view of self-control makes this fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:23) seem nearly unattainable.
This isn’t meant to endorse any candidate, but now that Bernie Sanders is out of the race for President of the United States, I figured it was time for this blog.
Many Christians, especially the teens to 40 year olds, as well as those living in Socialist economies, believe that Jesus was a socialist. I want to take a few minutes to demolish that myth today. This is not an exhaustive work, and I do not have the time to focus on writing one, but this myth is so obvious that this shouldn’t take long. No worries.
