Rage

 “Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” (Psalm 2:1-3) The Psalmist asks a probing question: “Why do […]

Shame On Us!

I am not what I ought to be, but thank God I’m not what I used to be.  First Lady, Melania Trump spoke last night from the Rose Garden at the White House. She was elegant and measured in her speech which stands out remarkably from so much of the political rhetoric of the hour. […]

We Are Doing It All Wrong

We’ve Been Doing It Wrong. I had a revelation this morning. Just before our morning worship service began a realization struck me in a very powerful way. So often, as Christ-followers, we fail to recognize the simplest truths––even if they are right in front of us. A simple comment made to me caused me to […]

Brothers . . . behave!

We hosted two of our fourteen grandkids for a sleepover last night. We love all of our kids––and all of their kids––with all of our hearts. God has blessed us with a family that is close, tight-knit and following Christ. We could hardly ask for more. Yet, with two rambunctious five-year-old cousins in the house, […]

Fig Leaves

  CNN’s Don Lemon recently made the outrageous claim that Jesus Christ “admittedly was not perfect” when he was on earth.  During a discussion about the shortcomings of the Founding Fathers on Monday night with fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo, Lemon said, “Here’s the thing: Jesus Christ — if that’s who you believe in, Jesus […]

"Woke"

I have been assailed by a horde of white “woke” folks this week who have confidently instructed me that I clearly don’t understand, and most certainly don’t care about the victims of racial inequality in America––implying that I need to be more “woke.” This is my response to that accusation:   Abortion is the number […]

AN URGENT APPEAL

  What is inconvenient for some is a disaster for others. The Deaf community in Kenya has been economically devastated by the COVID 19 pandemic. Families are hungry with no way to obtain food.  As many of my friends are aware, I have been deeply involved in ministry to the Deaf in Kenya for almost […]

I Will Not Fear

  Two great fears stalk the American public: We are afraid of the coronavirus and we fear the growing control of the government in our lives at all levels. On the one side, there are those who are absolutely consumed with fear that they or someone they love might contract this virus. How do we […]

Called To Freedom

  Galatians 5:13 warns:  “For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” Paul warned the Galatians that the freedom we have in Christ does not constitute a license to sin.  The grace of God is not permission to […]

A Hairless Church

(Note: My comments here will prove irritating for some very fine people. I could apologize in advance, but I won’t. Sometimes what we need is some well-placed irritation, and there are some would suggest that irritation is what I do best. Please listen to what I AM saying and don’t try to imagine what I […]
