The Apostles Corner

by Apostle John Morton

Christian... A title synonymous with son's of God. But many that carry the title more than lack in their abilities to reflect the attributes given of God. Unfortunately Christianity as a whole has failed to be evidence of the Glory of God among men, but this was the first thing that Christ did in all His works. So how could we possibly declare the deity of the word made flesh and fail to reflect all that he made possible in us? ...   ...  Read more

  • The Moral Divide

    The Moral Divide

    Morals are defined as being of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior or simply put, ethical standards.There was a time when we did have principal standards of right and wrong. But in today's world, the truth has come to be whatever we perceive in our own minds. We have come to a place in time where we no longer even consider the explanation of clarity that’s right in front of our faces. Because the only thing that matters this our own opinion.We have come to a place where the moral compass of seemingly good people is easily swayed in the presence of their mental concepts. And the already misled compass of evil men has empowered them to commit even darker works than before. As of today, our nation has had 130 mass shootings this year alone. And with each one, we continue to ask the same question, what is going on here? Our nation's legislature is constantly making every attempt to find a solution to issues where they have not addressed the root element.I remember going through a period in my life where I was dealing with some kind of problem in my left leg. Before going to a doctor, I did everything that I could to address the discomforts. But little did I know there was no problem with my leg at all. The problem was an issue with my left shoe.The point that I'm making here is that too often we try to solve problems from a superficial perspective. But when you fix something from the top, it's going to rise back up from the bottom.If we trust scripture, we know that God said that things would be the way that they are, but it's still important that we be able to understand the root elements by which these conditions have come to be.Getting to the root cause of any problem is not hard at all, the issue comes with getting past our intellectual perspective of what's going on. We don't even have to get into a major explanation of spiritual things. All we have to do is rationalize the reality of what is truth and what is deception.This place of confusion begins within us. Let’s consider the age-old image of a man with a devil on one shoulder and an Angel on the other, a depiction of how we battle within ourselves over the competition between darkness and light.You know I truly believe that the heart of man does desire what is good. And the evidence of that is God said he made man in his own image. So why do we end up in such a conflict over foundational principles and morals?

  • A Misconception Of Faith

    A Misconception Of Faith

    Proverbs 14:12-16 saysThere is a way which seemeth right unto a man, But the end thereof are the ways of death. Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; And the end of that mirth is heaviness. The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: And a good man shall be satisfied from himself.Death in itself is defined as separation from God. Many of us walk about in this life not even knowing that we are spiritually dead...Believing that we know God , but in reality we only know of Him. And in retrospect to that truth, many of us who profess faith, walk about afflicted with spirits of depression, despair, and disease. Missing out on the fullness of his promises because of our inability to walk in the power of faithfulness that was once delivered unto all. Let's consider the things that may be holding us back from being in that space where God promised to bless us. That space where he declared that we would even be evidence of his glory among men. That place where it is no longer we who live, but Christ who lives within us.

  • Endeavors of The Heart (Intro from New Book)

    Endeavors of The Heart (Intro from New Book)

    Throughout the history of man many a war was presumably initiated in part because of religion, or should I say because of Man believing that the righteousness of God gave him power to declare war. Jeremiah 17:99 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?It is my belief that no war was ever because of religion, They have always been because of the wickedness of men’s hearts that were grasping for whatever they could find to fulfill their own endeavors. When I think about the transitions that our nation went through during the Donald Trump administration and the era of COVID, It troubles me to think how drastically the thought patterns of many were altered. This is where we have come to be in our search to truly find God. It has become filled with the white noise of adverse endeavors of the heart, blockades of personal opinion, lust for reward, and inability to accept simply being in a place of misunderstanding. If you are venturing into the pages of this book, let me begin by saying that unless you’re willing to reconsider much of what you have come to trust, the chapters that follow this introduction will offer you no growth whatsoever. I know that this applies to many of you because the falling away from the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God is greater in this day than ever before. In a portion of the letter that Paul wrote to the Hebrews he confronted the repercussions of drifting away and the ongoing affect that it would have. But at the same time he showed what would be the evidence of those who stood fast to the course of Christ and did not drift away. Hebrews 5:11-1311 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.13 For everyone that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

    Faith is much more that a verbal proclamation, and many never reach the fulfillment of its true meaning. Here's a clip from the podcast entitled A Misconception of Faith

    She Wasn't Designed To Obey You

    When I look at the condition that our nation has to to be. Sometimes all I can do is shake my head. But the time has come for men to start shaking their head at the way that our women have rejected our leadership; and then accepting that its our own fault. They were designed to obey God in us. And we've been giving that everything that is us, and literally nothing that is solely God.
