Self Imposed Restriction: Wisdom or Religion?


COLOSSIANS 2



Colossians 2

Vs 6 
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus as Lord so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith as you have been taught abounding in it with thanksgiving. 

The way you walk in Him rooted and built up and established in faith: Abound with Thanksgiving. How many times do I say "Thank You Sir!" to my Father in heaven? Thank you for sending Your Son, Your Word, Your Spirit, Your Giftings! Thank you for the sunrise and the sunset, the rain and the clear days, thank you for flowers and for snow...etc

Vs16-17
So let no one judge you in food or in drink or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is Christ...
VS 21
Why...do you subject yourselves to regulations: "Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle"...
Vs 23
These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.


How many times have I heard: "I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't hang with those who do" or some other such wording? It's interesting, now I don't personally drink because I have a family history of substance abuse dating back at least two generations and probably further. I made a decision to cut myself off before it became a threat, which is had just started to. There is biblical basis for those who decide that alcohol is acceptable and for those who don't. Even though my last sip of alcohol was in December 2001, I haven't any less struggle with my flesh. From soda to chocolate or just good food, my flesh wants, demands, screams, to be indulged.

Imposing certain self regulations because they would be harmful is a good idea. But you can tell when someone has made a health and life decision out of their own best interest to protect the anointing of God on their life and when someone has imposed something out of religiousness. The self imposed religious person practically brags about not doing it. They look down on others who do it. There is an air about them, and it's repulsive. The self imposed for conscience sake person doesn't brag about it or mind if people do.

I can't tell  you how many times I've been at some work function or somewhere with others out to eat and people ordered wine or beer and then when they found out I didn't drink they were so apologetic and asked if I would like them not to. I tell them all, "The decision is mine and for me. It has nothing to do with you. Please enjoy!" I have no problem sitting a table full of people drinking, moderately and with wisdom. I have no problem with a Christian or Pastor that drinks a glass of wine here or there. I simply don't do it for my own reasons.

The idea here is the flesh, what are problems for me, aren't for you. You have other things you need to tend to. If there are weak areas of the flesh, cut them out, it's better to go into heaven with one eye and without a nagging festering sin that won't let you go. Just be aware that cutting that out doesn't change your flesh. You still need to watch for other areas the flesh will creep up.

So how do I conquer the flesh?

Chapter 3:1-2
...seek those things which are above... set your mind on things above

Set your mind on things above... imagine, ponder, meditate the Word... that is how you change and subdue the flesh. It looks like the solution is Mondays reading... Chapter 3.

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…

How to cultivate Joy... Olivier's Response

Recently I've been praying about direction in my life. I feel as though the wheels are spinning in the mud and I'm not gaining any traction or going anywhere. Among other things the Lord has started moving me toward praying about studying redemption. I've spent so many years studying the finer points of prosperity, healing, etc... somehow I lost the message of sin, the cross, redemption. Redemption, however, includes all those other things like prosperity, healing, peace, joy, etc...

So now with a new perspective, years later, I need to start a study of redemption from Genesis to Revelation all over again. Come to find out that my friend Steve Wilson has been teaching a class on Redemption at EMIC all the Wednesdays services of most of March and April 2013. As I work on Wed nights with the Youth Group I miss adult service those days. I'm downloading those now to start listening as I begin my own study of redemption.

The Lord moved me last night to re-watch the last 30 mi…
