WELCOME TO OUR BLOG!
My name is Josh Hurley. My wife Jackie and I and our 3 girls live in Cascade, Idaho. We believe we were called to Cascade for one purpose: To help build the Body into the head who is Christ. Imagine what a great and incredible gift each of us have in working together to become ONE with God! His Spirit lives in us and actively guides our lives telling us whom to speak to, how to pray, when to move, and when to stay. Our job is to be obedient. If you are a believer in the Cascade area and want to know how you can contribute to the body that is being built here, please let us know! If you are interested in what is taking place TODAY in those who are alive in Christ in the Cascade area, check out www.lifeincascade.com

To fear death is to limit God. From the very beginning God has been shaping death into life. So why do we fear death? Is it a lack of trust? Is our obsession with keeping our life an idol? I woke up with these thoughts and wrote the following poem.

Read the post to see if you can find one with which you agree.

Seat Belts v Masks
Dec 12, 2020, 11:28 AM
Is the government requiring masks like the government requiring seat belts? I don't think so. Is there anything the government can force you to do that will help you live longer? I don't think so. Obedience to God is the only metric that will dictate the length of your life for which His perfect plan calls.

Electoral College: A Democracy or a Republic?
Nov 4, 2020, 9:25 AM
Democrats focus on the United States as a democracy, the ideology that the majority rules. When majority rules, they get what they want. Republicans focus on the United States as a Constitutional Republic. The people elect representatives who balance the views of the majority with the needs of the minority. But which of these is the Electoral College?

Was Jesus Self Centered?
Sep 24, 2020, 8:51 AM
If you were a disciple, how would you respond to Jesus spreading leprosy? Forcing you to go on scary boat rides? Telling you to not worry about food or clothing? Telling you not to wash your hands before you eat? Was Jesus a self-centered jerk?

For evil to triumph . .
Aug 27, 2020, 7:28 PM
All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. But, it can not just be one or two. It must be the collective whole of the saints. It must be the collective whole of the patriots. Social media is not the glue we think it is to accomplish this unity. It is actually the opposite.

The Solution To The Darkness
Jun 1, 2020, 10:26 PM
We can all see the problems, but not many solutions. I found one: Money. Church, it is time to put your money where your mouth is. Or to say it better, it is time to put your treasure where you say your heart is.
