Some Things are NOT Private

  I was recently, and very tersely,  instructed by a very uppity female that because I do not have a vagina, I should keep my mouth shut when it comes to matters of women’s reproductive health care.  You know, I’m actually good with that. I don’t have a vagina and therefore little knowledge or understanding […]

Sidetracked

I am currently on vacation with my wife in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri.  We have spent a lot of time at Morningside Church in Blue Eye, enjoying some wonderful worship and teaching.  My wife is attending a special program for ladies this morning with Lorrie Bakker and I’m sitting in a nearby cafe meditating […]

We Are All At Risk

     I was strongly castigated recently because of my unrelenting and uncompromising position on the issue of abortion. It was carefully explained to me that my narrow view of the issue was preventing me from engaging in meaningful and rational discourse on the matter. This individual graciously volunteered to enlighten me on the “facts” […]

Legacy

  Psalm 78:1-7 1 My people, hear my teaching;     listen to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth with a parable;     I will utter hidden things, things from of old— 3 things we have heard and known,     things our ancestors have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their descendants;     we will tell […]

More Than You Imagine

William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army prophesied our generation with amazing clarity when he said, “I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell.” Booth saw a day when […]

Parasites

  These past few days, I can scarcely contain my irritation.  Actually, irritation is far too mild an expression for what I felt as I saw a photo of three or four young women sitting on a lawn, somewhere in America, holding the signs of their generation: “Parasites don’t have rights.”  It stuns me that […]

Abandoned

Early one spring morning I sat in my pickup outside a small wood frame house on Modena Extension in Gastonia, NC. I lived on Modena from the time I was not quite two until halfway through the first grade – an unofficial foster child of Clarence and Ruby Long. Clarence was a painter and Ruby […]

Easter Worshippers—Really?

  With all deference to the eminent wisdom of former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton—the poor souls who were murdered and maimed in Sri Lanka this past Sunday were not Easter worshippers. They were targeted Christians—targeted precisely because they don’t worship Easter; they worship Jesus, the Resurrected Lord of Glory, […]

Stand

The Scriptures assured those who follow Christ that a day would come where men would not endure sound doctrine; a time when truth would be rejected in favor of a lie and men would seek darkness rather than light.  We are certainly seeing such a day as the lies of the enemy are being exalted […]

Inconvenience or Intervention?

    “The steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord.” Sometimes what appears to be an irritating inconvenience just might be the Hand of the Lord intervening in your life. I’m going to tell the whole story, so you can appreciate the outcome. So, if you are not mechanically inclined – don’t get bored; […]
