When Honor Disappears: Five Consequences of a Society without Shame

I love my country. I am grateful that I have the privilege of living in a country where I can worship as I please without fearing condemnation or persecution. I am thankful for the generous nature of most Americans who eagerly provide aid to those in need in a time of crisis. I grew up emulating leaders who lived their...

Justifying Sin

Satan is a master at influencing men negatively. If an individual does not know Christ as Lord and Savior, the devil will do his best to convince him that it is a waste of time to pursue such a relationship. After all, most men are not so bad. While guilty of some minor failures, they generally treat their fellow man...

Wealth… and the Blessing of God

Hugh Hefner is 90 years old. His Playboy Empire was, at one time, valued at more than 400 million dollars. He has enjoyed a great measure of fitness, fame, fortune, and, in the minds of a very specific subset of our society, favor. Yet no believer would ever, under any circumstances, contend that Hefner’s prosperity was the result of God’s...

Unbridled Anger – 6 Reasons Violence has Escalated in America

One of the great testimonies to the character of our nation has been the peaceful transition of power every time a new president is elected. We do not select a leader based on who has the strongest army (as least not in a physical sense), nor do we use physical force to accomplish the transition. Political candidates have always sought...

Identifying Authentic Christianity

In a Presidential election year where every remaining candidate except Bernie Sanders claims to be a Christian, Donald Trump has apparently won the grand prize; the support of those who call themselves evangelical Christians. Why he has their support, however, has little to do with his declared Christianity; it has everything to do with his outrageous display of character traits...

7 Mistakes Believers Should Avoid when Choosing a President

  Like most Christians in America, I believe our country is at a crossroad. The President we elect this year will either turn our country back to our conservative, Judeo-Christian roots or take it beyond rescue. I am disgusted with the high-handed, hypocritical display of intolerance shown by those in leadership who pretend to celebrate its value. And I am...

Four Keys to Biblical Unity

Nothing is quite as sweet or pleasant as a fellowship of believers who are able to live, work and worship together peacefully. David rejoiced in observing such a gathering when he stated in verse 1 of the 133rd Psalm “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Sadly, many believers have never had...

Thoughts & Feelings

I read an interesting story some time ago about a 99 year old man being interviewed by a reporter. The young reporter was very impressed with the old man’s youthful attitude. As he was leaving the reporter voiced an interest in returning one year later to interview the man on his 100th birthday. The old man’s answer was a classic....

4 Keys to a Great New Year

There are many problems and challenges associated with the coming of a new year, especially in the day in which we live. On a national scale terrorism and the woes of our economy top the list. Of more local concern are the issues of education and public safety. While there is little that we can do about the issues mentioned...

Christmas Spirit

What is Christmas Spirit? If you do a search online asking the question you will get a variety of answers. Calvin Coolidge stated it this way: “Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” One individual responding...
