Yesterday, I wrote about the Texas Abortion Law. Same with the day before. Why am I so adamant about getting this message across? Honestly, it is a source of division even within my family. I'm the nut-job, religious freak who keeps bringing Jesus into the conversation. People tend to avoid that. Why won't I just … Continue reading Just Let It Go
The Texas Abortion Law is really stirring up the Facebook feed. One sarcastic comment from a man I don't know posed an "impossible" question. Suppose you are in a fertility clinic when suddenly there is a life-threatening fire and you are able to either save an 8-year-old child or a vial of 1,000 embryos. Either … Continue reading Texas Abortion Law
It sounds like the Supreme Court of the United States will allow a new Texas law to go into effect. The law will prohibit providers from performing an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected. No exceptions are provided. Some people are very happy. Some, like President Biden and Vice-President Harris, are outraged. "My body, … Continue reading My Body, My Choice.
Last Friday, Derek Chauvin was sentenced to 22 1/2 years for the death of George Floyd. Everyone has an opinion on that. Some think the sentence was fair. Others would like to see him dead. Still others think he got a rotten deal. All these and everything in between. Without a doubt, this event has … Continue reading Chaos In The Streets

We think of we have come far from the days of brutish, barbaric behavior such as that. To make the point, the objectors turn the table and ask the Christian … Continue reading Theocracy.

In his new book, "Fault Lines", Voddie Baucham, Jr. warns of this false religion becoming a big problem in … Continue reading Cleansing of the Church
Our home church is reading Deuteronomy. It is probably my favorite book of Moses. In today's blog, I'm going to write about this verse, to prepare ourselves. “You shall not do according to all that we are doing here today, everyone doing whatever is right in his own eyes, Deuteronomy 12:8 This is familiar language. … Continue reading Prepare Ourselves.
It is springtime in rural Minnesota. The birds are singing and spirits are lifting. Two hours away, things are not so good. There, the trial of Derek Chauvin begins. You'll recognize him as the police office who knelt on the neck of George Floyd, a man suspected of passing phony $20 bills, until he died. … Continue reading Capital Punishment
“And God blessed Noah” Genesis 9:1a We’ve been reading a bible plan through our home church. I’m already in a plan, so I’m reading two right now. It’s interesting to see what a person can pick up just a few months after reading the very same material! For instance, we covered Exodus 21 & 22 … Continue reading 2019-09-16 Off With His Head!
