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....

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.

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...

God Alone!

Exodus 15 is Israel’s song of praise to the Lord after He delivered them from the Egyptian army. It is a remarkable event to say the least; the culmination of a series of plagues and miracles designed to expose Pharaoh as an evil tyrant, demonstrate his impotence, and liberate Israel from his oppression. More importantly, those events exalted God as the sovereign ruler of...

Three Character Traits Every Believer needs to Develop:

It may just be “bragging if you can back it up” (Dizzy Dean, Muhammad Ali, Reggie Jackson, others) – but it’s still arrogant! Believers aren’t perfect; just forgiven. To state it a little more directly: No believer is perfect; all are forgiven. In no area is that understanding more important than when dealing with our approach to things about which...

The Perfect Law of Liberty: Three principles that constrain our liberty in Christ

In today’s ever-expanding secular society people eagerly embrace liberty, defining it as “absolute freedom,” and insisting that they have the right to live as they please. There are no constraints because their “self-defined” right to freedom justifies whatever they choose to do. Such twisted thinking produces a world without boundaries, where adults, as well as children, have difficulty discerning right...

God’s Handiwork

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” (Ps. 19:1) It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler, the leaves on the trees are turning, and many are becoming preoccupied with preparations for the holidays ahead. Fall has officially arrived. To many, fall is considered to be...

The Root of Sin

How do we identify sin? What goes into the reasoning process that helps us determine if there is something in our thinking, attitudes, or behavior that crosses the line between what is acceptable to God and what violates His standards? Is there a clear, scriptural means for gaining that discernment, and what does it entail? Does God ever make it...
