Self-Improvement vs. Life Improvement

By Chris Bunton I have read tons of self help books and articles over the years. I have watched videos and listened to books on tape from all the biggest names in every self-help category.

He ran into the vets office.A Good Boy with cancer.He tripped twice, bumping a wall,and peed for the last time. What did he think as heContinue reading “Good Boy”

The Two Kitties

We have several stray cats that live in the neighborhood. Most of them are wild. You cannot get near them or pet them. They sneak up and get food, or water, or to be nosy, but not much else. I’ve learned over the years in my spiritual walk that one of the places that humansContinue reading “The Two Kitties”

Am I an Addict?

By Chris Bunton Yes, you are. You might not be sleeping in alleyways with a needle in your arm or standing in line at the dispensary or buying the cheapest liquor you can find, but you are addicted to something.             Mcdonald’s fries, gambling, religion, Facebook, work, Netflix, sex, your hobby, chocolate, running,Continue reading “Am I an Addict?”

Prudes

I’m a Christian. But, I get so irritated with some of the stuff I see Christians pushing. For example, I just saw a Christian friend post a meme with a Bible verse about how in the last days perilous times shall come. “Men shall be lovers of their own selves”…, the verse says. The memeContinue reading “Prudes”

We have slept in similar ditches, woken up in the wrong beds, got caught up with the wrong people, and done a million things we cannot remember, no matter how hard we try.             But, one of the things thatContinue reading “7 Demons”

Our First Love

I see folks on Facebook talking about praying to God to heal the land, and to stop the evil in the land, and to drive away pestilence and all of that. I’ve heard it for years. How exactly do you think God will do this? Are you really ready for it? Maybe the problem isn’tContinue reading “Our First Love”

You Go With You

Here’s a lesson I learned while my life was falling apart. I had been abandoned after driving my family away. I drank and drank and partied and fought. I was arrested time and time again, and that’s who I was.             I had been drinking and decided to go to the bowlingContinue reading “You Go With You”

Jailhouse Religion

When I was locked up, I first heard this term. It was used to refer to someone who turns to God only when they are in the jailhouse. I’ve heard high class people use this term and I’ve heard inmates use it to slam other inmates. They would say things like, “Man, you only wantContinue reading “Jailhouse Religion”
