  • Morality free world will test ministers

    The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) are navigating new terrain as openly homosexual Scoutmasters joined leadership ranks earlier this week. Former Secretary of Defense, now BSA President, Robert Gates blazed this trail in May when he urgently called for a revised policy. “We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be,” Gates said.

  • Don’t let time slip through your fingers

    All of us face the passing of time every day. Sometimes it seems to fly by, and at other times it seems to drag. Sometimes we can’t wait for some big event, and other times we wait in fearful anticipation. But either way, there is one truth we must all face, our time is limited. We have 24 hours in a day, seven days in a week, 52 weeks in a year, but we don’t know if we have tomorrow.

  • God is faithful through temptation

    Several weeks ago, I referred to 1 Corinthians 10:13. “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”

  • Living “on the way”

    A lot of important things happen while we are “on the way.” Some of the best conversations my wife and I have had are in the car on the way somewhere. The same thing has happened with my children and grandchildren. While on my way across country, I have rejoiced at some of the most amazing scenery that our Lord ever created.

  • Gay marriage: How not to respond

    If you’re saddened at the direction our nation has turned, a direction now realized after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage, you may be having a difficult time reconciling that according to your Christian beliefs.

    After all Christians are called to love others and hate sin and this often causes a spiritual division. Many are left to wonder how they should respond.

  • Part 2: What the devil doesn't want you to know

    Part II
    Last week, we talked about how the devil is not all-powerful, not all-knowing, and cannot be everywhere at once. His power is nowhere close to God’s. Most of his power is simply derived by creating illusions in your mind, having you believe a lie. The mind is where your battlefield is. This leads into this week’s topic: temptation.
    James 1:13 says, “And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, ‘God is tempting me.’ God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else.”


  • Haircuts and hope

    The other day I was sitting in the barber’s chair and I realized two things. First, there is not nearly as much hair falling on the floor around me as there used to be. Second, the hair that is falling has changed color. I would still call my hair color brown overall, but more grey has crept than I like to admit.
