About Suzanne

Formerly a Mental Health Clinician, I have changed my thoughts about the mental health industry. This blog is about my Christian view of things, including the psychology of mankind.

Humans Have Fallen Into Sin

As Adam and Eve had been warned to not eat of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, sin was introduced into the entire human race when they disobeyed God.  They ate from the fruit because the serpent told Eve that by eating the fruit she would have the knowledge God has; the knowledge of good and evil.  By disobeying God who told them not to eat from this tree they went from not knowing good and evil to having their eyes opened to good and evil and so fell and were cast out of the Garden of Eden.

 

Sunday – A Quick Catch-Up Note

Happy Sunday and Happy Labor Day Weekend.

Just a quick note to say that my blogging here has slowed down; I have been working 12-hour days and it is difficult to blog during this brief time while I’m working on increasing my income.

28 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. ~ Matthew 11:28-30

May you enjoy the day off and in these crazy times, I pray that you will give thanks to the Lord for the blessings from above, and my prayers go out to each of you that your burdens are light, as we find joy in knowing Jesus Christ!

 

Does Bernie Know Jesus?

While writing my last post about how Jesus wasn’t a socialist, I recalled that they had a mission and a cause, you might say, unlike Bernie’s socialism.

Bernie’s socialism is meant for all Americans to “share all they had”, yet the bible refers to the early church as being needful of support – so they shared all they had so no one went without.

Those times were different than today’s times, here in America.  We are not starting the early Christian church and no longer living in those times.

Bernie doesn’t even know who Peter the Apostle is; he is waiting for the Messiah after all.

Did Jesus “Feel The Bern?”

A few days ago while driving near Seattle, I read a bumper-sticker that made my skin crawl.

It said, “Jesus was a socialist” and under that it said, “Feel the Bern”.  It was obviously a Bernie Sanders supporter who affixed that horribly inaccurate bumper sticker on the old, beat-up car.

I thought about how Bernie Sanders is for socialism in the new democratic socialism that he and fellow socialist-democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) promote in their leftist political agendas. Continue reading

” …for John Baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” – Acts 1:5

Today I’ve been a little bit busy making changes to my life — I know many of you may be dealing with your life’s issues which makes it a bit tough to post something if you’re trying to blog regularly.  I try but sometimes I have so much on my plate that it feels like I’ve gone weeks without writing anything.

Sin, Spiritual Death, and Christ Jesus

I found myself looking back upon working as a mental health clinician and how we were trained to work with clients. Seeing a video today called, “A Different Kind of Force–Policing Mental Illness” made me think about how being a Christian creates a new perspective on the problems related to a person’s mental health and why I left the field.

Peace Through Christ Jesus

But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples were grumbling about this, said to them, “Do you take offense at this?  Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before?

Jesus was the Teacher of our Eternity, no one recognized then and now.  Well, almost no one believed him as he took the form of a man, and walked the earth teaching about himself.  Today most people seem to have a superficial knowledge of who He is, but the same Father teaches us from His Son Jesus Christ through their words in the bible.

But there are some of you who do not believe.” – John 6:64
