Theophobia - Fear of god or religion The post Theophobia appeared first on Courageous Christian Father. Read the full article at Theophobia ©2004-2017 by Steve Patterson of Courageous Christian Father.
Theophobia – Fear of god or religion
Theo is Greek pertaining to God or religion. Phobia is Greek for Fear. This fear is similar and related to Zuesophobia and is often caused by Homilophobia. If you can’t tell already, I am doing a series on Christian Phobias.
In this fear people will fear a god or God or even religion. This fear again is not the reverent type of fear either. It is the kind that you avoid everything because you are so afraid.
Staurophobia - Fear if crosses or crucifixes. #Staurophobia The post Staurophobia appeared first on Courageous Christian Father. Read the full article at Staurophobia ©2004-2017 by Steve Patterson of Courageous Christian Father.
Staurophobia – Fear if crosses or crucifixes. #Staurophobia
Stauro is Greek (meaning cross-shaped) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). In Hollywood you see this with Vampires and Dracula. But we know vampires and dracula aren’t real. But in real life, people do fear the crosses and crucifixes. Most with this fear may have bad memories when it comes to a cross or crucifix. This may also include the Catholic’s Rosary.
Back in the Roman days I am sure there were many people who had Staurophobia, as they didn’t want to be nailed to the cross. They knew it was the most cruel form of punishment known.
As a Christian we shouldn’t fear the cross. That is where Jesus paid it all for us. He gave us His life for us.

Experts Say Planning Ahead Is The Key To Reducing Stress In The Kitchen
From busy schedules to picky eaters, mealtime can seem overwhelming for many moms and dads. According to a study by the University of Illinois, some parents report that preparing a meal is so stressful it feels like being in a “pressure cooker.”*
The Pampered Chef, the largest direct seller of kitchen tools, is committed to helping these families come together around the table each night. Through its partnership with the Family Resiliency Center, it has developed a few tips to simplify busy weeknight dinners.
- Get in a food mood. Set aside 10 minutes once a week to jot down upcoming meals and build your shopping list. This can save time and cut down your food budget.
- Take stock of your pantry. Before your grocery trip, double-check your pantry to eliminate last-minute trips for “forgotten” must-have items during the week.
- Add a prep step. Cook one extra thing tonight to make tomorrow’s meal easier. This works best with time-consuming steps, such as browning ground beef, preparing rice or cleaning and cutting vegetables.
- Schedule a fuss-free meal. Enjoy a build-your-own-pizza night or soup and sandwiches—bring the family into the kitchen and let the primary cook off the hook, creating a fun family tradition in the process.
- Cook with others. Collaborate with friends to prepare several meals ahead of time that can be frozen and ready to use on nights you don’t have the time or energy to cook.
Another way to make mealtime quick, simple and affordable is with this family-friendly One-Pot Chicken Dinner. It costs about $2 a serving and is cooked to tender perfection in the microwave in 30 minutes, with two options for a side:

For Garlic Mashed Potatoes: place chicken, breast side up, into Rockcrok (4-qt./3.8-L) Dutch Oven. Arrange potatoes and garlic around chicken. The potatoes fit closely around the chicken. No need to add extra liquid; the drippings are enough to cook the potatoes!

Skip Rope, Not Church – Church Sign – Skipping Rope can be fun, but not so much for skipping church.
Skip Rope, Not Church – Church Sign
This weeks Church Sign Saturday takes us to Emmanuel Baptist in Jefferson City, TN. Their church sign reads …
Skip Rope, Not Church
This church sign should remind us to be in fellowship with our fellow believers. The Bible tells us to not neglect the fellowship of assembly. (Hebrews 10:25). I know personally if I miss church I feel bad, even if I am sick and I miss.
So don’t skip church if you can help it. Go to church! Actually …
BE THE CHURCH!

Deck of Cards Gospel Presentation – You can use a deck of playing cards to share the gospel. You can use the various cards, suits, colors, etc. to share the gospel including Bible references. Including a Free Printable version!
Deck of Cards Gospel Presentation
This presention is great to share at church, with the youth or even your friends and family. You can do this before or after you play a game of cards. Or just anytime. I would say there is more urgency in sharing before! Some might call this the Deck of Cards Bible.
The Cards & Their Meaning!
The Printable version is below!
The Ace reminds us that there is only one God.
The Two represents the two parts of the Bible, Old and New Testaments
The Three represents the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.
The Four represents the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
The rest of the presentation is below this video
The Five is for the five virgins. There were ten but only five of them were glorified (Matthew 25:1-13).
The Six is for the six days it took God to create the Heavens and Earth (Genesis 1).
The Seven is for the day God rested after making His Creation (Genesis 2:3).
The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife, their three sons and their wives, the eight people God spared from the flood that destroyed the Earth (Genesis 7:7).
The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy He cleansed ten, but nine never thanked Him (Luke 17:11-19).
The Ten represents the Ten Commandments that God handed down to Moses on tablets made of stone (Exodus 20:1-21).
The Jack is a reminder of Satan, one of God’s first angels, but he got kicked out of heaven for his sly and wicked ways and is now the joker of eternal hell (Ezekiel 28:11-19).
The Queen represents Mary, mother of Jesus (Luke 1:26-38).
The King stands for Jesus, for he is the King of all kings (Revelation 19:16).
When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with a total of 365, one for every day of the year.
There are a total of 52 cards in a deck; each is a week, 52 weeks in a year.
The four suits represent the four seasons: spring, summer, fall and winter.
Each suit has thirteen cards, there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter.
The Red Cards represents the blood Jesus shed to pay the penalty for our sins. (Romans 5:8).
The Black Cards represents spiritual darkness because of sin. (Romans 3:23).
The Color of the cards I added to this blog post because they can help with the Deck of Cards Gospel Presentation. These were taken from the Power Band Witnessing Tool Bracelet.
