But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Did She Have an Inkling?

Written by

So, when TV's most (in)famous psychic dies, I have a couple of questions.

Did she know she would get cancer?  Did she know when she would die?  Any inkling?  I'll bet she didn't go to her doctor and tell him, "I'm getting cancer on July 1, so let us start treatments now!" 

Did she party and spend all her money before the

Senator Sasse nails it . . . again

Our public square is plagued by habitual, brazen lying. This isn’t entirely new — there have always been some politicians who lied — but I do not believe this country can long survive if the public concedes in advance that people in government do not need to be

"Jesus, Who Saved a People" -- Jude 5-16

Written by

The Second in a Series on the Book of Jude

What was a typical sermon like in the apostolic age?  How did those men identified with the apostolic circle preach?  In verses 5-16 of the Epistle of Jude we find such a sermon (or at least a portion of such a sermon) which serves as the main body of Jude’s short epistle.  Citing from
