Eating My Own Bread

“And seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying, “We will eat our own bread and wear our own clothes, only let us be called by your name; take away our reproach.” – Isaiah 4:1 Many who come through the door of my study are not seeking godly counsel. They are […]

(I, not the Lord)

In 1 Corinthians 7:12 Paul is careful to distinguish between inspired utterance from God through the Holy Spirit and his own opinion. He says, “To the rest I say (I, not the Lord) that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce […]

Intervention

On May 21, 1946 in Los Alamos, New Mexico, a young and daring scientist was carrying out a necessary experiment as preparations were being made for an atomic test to be conducted in the South Pacific. In order to determine the amount of U-235 necessary for a chain reaction, the test required him to push […]

Halloween is Over Mr. Obama, Remove Mask

Since Mr. Obama has suddenly found “religion” and decided that the Holy Bible is an adequate justification for defending his policies, I thought I might offer a bit of assistance in the proper application of Bible verses to policy statements.

Public Castration

I grew up in rural North Carolina; plain and good folks. We lived in a factory town before the days of integration. Not having much of a family myself I was blessed to be accepted into my girlfriend’s family (now my wife of some 45 years) long before we were married. It was not unusual […]

     Earlier today I forced myself to watch a 3 minute 16 second video (such wretched images that I refuse to show them). It has left me heart broken. My grief is inconsolable.      Our President has declared that we are no longer a Christian nation and clearly he is correct. The soul of the […]

Political Commentary Is Not Godly Proclamation

Political Commentary Is Not Godly Proclamation As a moth is drawn to a flame am I toward political commentary. I just can’t seem to help myself. I actually want to focus on heady, more spiritual discussions but then another politician exposes his devious heart and I can’t seem to think about anything else. Jonathan Gruber […]

Giving Christmas

This is Velma – a student at the Immanuel Christian School for the Deaf in Kenya. We have so many kids, husbands and wives of kids, and grandchildren we have had to adopt the practice of “drawing names” for gifts at Christmas. The kids simply can’t buy all their brothers and sisters and cousins a […]

The Myth of Tolerance

This football player can do this But this football player is flagged for doing this Can we ever have a real conversation about tolerance? A high school football player was penalized this past week because he knelt for a brief moment after a touchdown to give silent thanks. The ref blew the whistle on him […]
