Around the World in a Weekend

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, Rev. 7:9 ESV) (January 22, 2019). This past weekend I headed off to […]

The Smartest Man in the Room

      On January 1, 404 A.D, a monk by the name of Telemachus, traveled to Rome in order to encourage the churches in Rome.  When he arrived he heard about the Gladiator fights in the Colosseum. Having never witnessed such things, Telemachus went to the coliseum. He was shocked by the barbarism, and […]

The Lost Doctrine of the Church

     We do not necessarily celebrate the character of Jonah, nor do we ascribe any great valor or spirituality to this rebellious prophet. He was disobedient (at first), angry, petulant, and willing to die rather than deliver the message of God to Nineveh.  However, we can learn from Jonah. We do learn that the […]

A New Chapter

  The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. (Psalm 90:10 KJV)       I came to the northeast in September of 1967 to attend Bible […]

Great Words from Wang Yi

Friends, I have been following closely events in China over the past few days as the Chinese government has systematically rounded up members and leaders of a well known church. Wang Yi, pastor of Early Rain Covenant Church in Chengdu, the provincial capital of Sichuan, was arrested alongside some 100 Christian congregants over the weekend, following threats from […]

Stop Saying Please

        So, I read today that there is an ongoing lawsuit against the city of San Antonio, Texas and its non-discrimination policy which effectively says that churches and religious orders cannot refuse to hire persons based upon their sexual orientation.  One lawsuit filed in federal court Saturday against the city by the U.S. […]

Reluctant Messenger

    A Reluctant Messenger Two men walked together along the water’s edge just south of Tarsus, on the outer rim of the massive Assyrian empire.  As they walked, one of them spotted a large sea creature that had beached itself on the shore. Thinking that if the creature was not long dead,  it would […]

A Just Judgment

As you head to the ballot box this coming week, consider these thoughts. Please. Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20 Rev. Carlton Veazey speaks, “God of grace and God of glory, […]

Intersecting Lives, Writing Great Stories

      (an excerpt from Makutano by M.K. Gantt, © MKGANTT.COM PUBLICATIONS, 2018; Chapter 12,  page 162) One woman, the wife of one of the pastors of the church there, related how she sat at her mother’s home with her children, her mother, and several others, waiting to die. They could hear the angry shouts […]
