Harvest

I pray that in 2012 the church begins to look and hope for a spiritual harvest instead of a financial or other one.   We hear it every New Years sermon how the coming year is gonna be a year of “harvest.”  Maybe it will be, but I think that too many minds think of finances […]

Christmas Gifts with a Twist

With Christmas quickly approaching, there are fewer and fewer days to buy presents for those on your list.  But how necessary are many of the gifts we give?  How many will be remembered in a few years or even in one?  Now, I enjoy getting nice gifts for people.  I like to see the faces […]

9/11-A Healthy Reflection

Ten years ago today the country seemed united because of fear, grief and anger.  When the buildings fell, America started waving the flag and going back to church.   But only a short time later, America had forgotten God and its new-found patriotism and everyone went back to not caring about each other.

Does God Care About Sports?

With the football season just days away I thought it was apropos to write on a subject I have wanted to write on for a long time but never did.  Does God like or care about sports? There is no question that people everywhere like and in some cases LOVE sports, and are especially fanatical […]

Foreknowledge or Already Written?

When you talk to most believers they have a hard time really (truly) explaining how God knows everything.  They understand what prophecy is and what it does but they really do not understand how God knows these things.  They usually say that He knows all because He transcends time and He is able to go […]

Human, Not Hero

When we think of a hero we typically think of a person who is brave—someone who goes out of their way to help another.  For instance, someone who rescues another from a car that just rolled over.  Or someone who jumps in a lake to save another from drowning.  The term “hero” also gets assigned to […]

You Are Not on Trial

You are not on trial, your faith is. If you are born of the Spirit and are following Jesus, then consider it joy when you enter trials because God is refining you. He puts Himself into us and then brings us through the fire so He can burn away anything that is not of Him. […]

Hollywood the harlot.

Hollywood has made itself known in political discourse for decades now.  Pointing the finger at their opposition and telling the rest of America how we should live.  They tell us how we need to walk, how we need to talk, what we should eat, drink,  think and how we should vote.   They presume that their […]

The reality of politics

The political climate is out of control right now.  Both parties are playing politics with every issue and have no real interest in solving the problems.  But if you understand politics you know that politics has very little to do with reality.  The politicians are not interested in fixing our country.  They are interested in […]
