Hath God Said?

Someone asked me recently to explain the difference between the prevailing¬†theology of today and the theology of say, a hundred years ago. I didn’t want to give a “pat” answer so I asked if I could mull on the question for a while. Today, driving down the interstate highway in my pick up truck the […]

Standing at the edge of¬†the Jordan River, Elisha wrapped his staff in the mantle of Elijah the prophet¬†and cried out, “Where is the God of Elijah?” The question for our generation is, “Where are the Elijahs of God?” There are a few that come to mind – but as always, only a few. The majority […]

Better To Reject Truth Than To Embrace A Lie

The stars in all their glory do not shine so brightly against the sunlit sky and yet, against the backdrop of darkness their majesty is clearly seen. ¬†In the same way the cross of Christ is dim against a curtain of man’s self-worth and inner goodness. But when the curtain of pretense is pulled away […]

You Shall Surely NOT Die.........seriously?

Many in the modern church have finally (they think) come up with a doctrine on sin and salvation that everybody can live with, literally. ¬†Carlton Pearson, who has become one of the key spokesmen for the “universalist” position is at least not afraid to say it right out loud. ¬†In his article “Jesus; the Saviour […]

To Know Him and Make Him Known

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: ¬†Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: ¬†In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:¬†Who is […]

The Thing I Fear Most

Roots

Allow me to post a rather lengthy quote from a book I am re-reading, “History Makers” by Dutch Sheets and William Ford III. Please take the time to read it carefully because it is a timely word for both the church and our nation: “In Hebrew what is behind and what is future come from […]

A Killing Root

I wrote this piece as a Facebook status, but have received such strong and positive responses, thought I would reprint it here since, a “root” of bitterness is an issue in many marriage and families. I hope it will be helpful. Be careful, for an embittered spirit is a plague like no other, and if […]

Heart Murmur

¬† ¬† ¬†Over the years, I have had the privilege of teaching thousands of folks in a variety of settings. Few of them ever realize how much I have learned while engaged in the teaching process. From time to time there are those moments when an exceptional clarity of thought reveals itself through a student. […]

Is There a Cross In Your Marriage?

These brief paragraphs were taken from a little book I’m re-reading entitled “Well-Driven Nails” by Byron Forrest Yawn. It is an excellent book, written specifically for preachers. I downloaded it from Amazon for 9 bucks and it was money well spent. There is a wealth of rich material, but one passage really caugh my heart […]
