Fear makes news. This week we see people fall to their death in Afghanistan as they cling to evacuation airplanes in desperate attempts to flee the Taliban. They know all too well what is soon coming. COVID is again dominating the headlines as vaccines are failing to prevent the spread of the disease. The world … Continue reading Not Afraid To Die
My daughter was married to a nice young man this weekend. When it was all over and everyone left, I was alone to make sure everything was taken care of. It was then that I thought about the bible story of the wedding in Cana. Nearly everyone is familiar with this one - Jesus turned … Continue reading It’s Not About The Wine.
Money fascinates me. When I was a freshman in college, I saw a sign that said, "If you love money, you'll love Finance." Yes, I enjoyed accounting and working with numbers, but I also wanted money myself. Money can be either a snare or a blessing. It's very easy to become selfish when asked the … Continue reading Whose Money Is It?
For most of my life, the common school of thought was that truth is relative. Your truth was your truth depending on your experience and view on that. My truth could be much different. Mine is still valid, of course, even if it conflicts with yours. In college, I started to notice that important schools … Continue reading What Is Truth?

That's right. Here's the deal. God has made himself so evident that we have no reason to … Continue reading Predict The Future
Have you every looked into someone's eyes and known there is something very, very wrong inside of them? You look into their eyes and don't see the person you knew. It's like something else is inside the person. We see a bible story like this in what is commonly referred to as The Demon-Possessed Man. … Continue reading The Demon-Possessed Man
It's no secret that there has been a radical shift away from church over the last few decades. I suppose there are plenty of reasons, but, frankly, going to church won't get you to heaven. What IS important is whether or not you are born again. Jesus was clear on this. "Do not marvel that … Continue reading Church Won’t Get You To Heaven
Presidential pardons are political fuel because someone gets off the hook for something big. We like the idea of justice, especially when it comes to our enemies.
