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

Updates of Praise

Written by

First, I simply wanted to offer my sincere appreciation for everyone’s prayers concerning my wife’s surgery. It went well. In fact, it went better than I think the plastic surgeon thought it might. This was our second plastic surgeon as our first one retired before he could complete...

Health Updates

Written by

Just a quick word on my health and my wife’s upcoming surgery this Wednesday. It’s been several weeks since I quit coffee and it’s been a bit up and down. That’s probably normal for someone who has been drinking one to two cups of coffee daily for years.

I also know that my...

Well, if finally happened. I’ve been posting on Twitter since April of 2013. I have nearly 11,000 followers and I follow nearly that many as well. In all this time, I have never been suspended or my account cancelled…until today.

Lack of Discernment is Becoming the Norm

Written by

Not sure about you, but I spend a good amount of time perusing the ‘Net to learn what the latest attraction is within Christendom. It’s often disheartening. It’s like going onto a social network to read the rantings of the lunatic Left, convinced that President Trump has broken...

Selfishness is Next to Godlessness

Written by

Just a note: this is not the most in-depth biblical article I’ve ever written. In fact, to many it may pale in comparison, but I think it needs to be said. Wanna hear it? Here goes…

We live in the country on a dirt road. Our road is effectively a “short” cut connecting two...

Neflix’s Tragic Descent into Hell

Written by

I cancelled my NETFLIX subscription about three years ago because I was seeing the writing on the wall with the type of “original” shows that Netflix was glorifying itself with by producing and airing. That and George Soros allegedly poured a million dollars into the company and...

Quitting Coffee

Written by

If you’ve been reading my blog here for any length of time, you know the struggles I’ve had with respect to improving my health. It’s certainly been a long process, but the Lord has indeed taken me by the hand and led me through it. While I would not want to do it again, I’m...

Called Home

Written by

As a Christian, whenever another Christian (family member or friend), goes Home to be with the Lord, it’s always bittersweet. While we rejoice in the fact that they are now with the Lord, in His Presence, and no longer having to deal with the sin nature that the Lord Himself removed from...

This and That from Around the World

Written by

Apparently, Coca-Cola is pushing the LGBTQ+ agenda openly in Hungary with new ads that focus on same-sex couples. Conservative party members are opposed to it and pushing back against Coca-Cola, while of course, the LGBTQ+ communities are applauding Coke’s efforts.

The problem here is that too...

18 Years Ago Today, America was Attacked

Written by

On September 11th, eighteen years ago to the day, radical Islamists flew hijacked planes into the World Trade Center towers, killing 3,000 people in one swell swoop. Other planes targeted the Pentagon and the White House, although this latter one ended up crashing over Shanksville, PA, thanks to...

Impartations and Feelings

Written by

I was recently reading through a series of articles about NAR and the “gift” of Impartation. (You can read the entire series starting here then go to the end of that article to see the connecting articles.) The whole article breaks my heart. I really feel badly for the mom and her...

Wrestling Against Spiritual Powers

Written by

Ephesians 6:12 makes this very clear for us as to the war that we are all involved in. In fact, it is very easy to forget this so it is something that we Christians must remind ourselves of daily.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the...

Problems with Today’s So-Called Prophets

Written by

Today, more than ever it seems, society has been inundated with people who either claim to be prophets or have had that title bestowed on them by others. We’re all familiar with the fact that in the Bible, prophets – true prophets – were messengers from God. They were called and...

Gun Control Bait and Switch?

Written by

In today’s world, people are aghast (and should be) at the number of mass shootings for a number of decades. It’s almost as though society is being forced to reconsider its “love affair” with the gun. History is replete with example after example of dictators who outlawed...

Gun Control, Red Flag Laws and POTUS

Written by

If Hillary had won the 2016 election, we can assume we would be seeing even more mass shootings until society became overwhelmed enough to demand the government “do something” about all those guns. That appears to be part of the  Left’s “plan.”

From 2008-2016,...

The Stones Would Cry Out

Written by

Years ago, shortly after becoming a Christian at the age of 13, like most, I began reading the Bible. Admittedly then, I didn’t understand a lot as I had not yet learned that certain hermeneutical rules apply to Bible study.

Instead I found myself turning to human authors whose written works I...

Movies Have Consequences

In 2012, I wrote an article about smoking and tobacco usage in movies. In the article, I cited research and figures from the American Medical Association (AMA), which stated that “Smoking in Movies Accounts for Nearly Half of All Smoking.” The AMA found that more young people were...

How To Not Fear…

Written by

I think most would agree that life can be difficult, especially for Christians who are committed to being obedient to the Lord (2 Timothy 3:12). We aren’t obedient because we think that by it, we earn our salvation, because we know that our salvation is given freely based on faith.

We endeavor...

Guarding Our Tongues, Part 4

Written by

For the past three articles, we’ve been dealing with how to effectively guard our tongues. I’ve stated I’m not perfect at this and I’ll continue to state that fact. What I share, I share from God’s Word as something that we must endeavor to put into practice but the...

Guarding Our Tongues, Part 3

Written by

The more I read James, the more I realize how important it is to guard our tongues. Of course, as I’ve noted, as seen in Scripture, we guard our tongues by guarding our hearts and minds. What we audibly say is merely a reflection of what is in our hearts. In that sense then if we...

Guarding Our Tongues, Part 2

Written by

In our previous article in this series, we introduced the facts of Scripture that demand that we guard our tongues. In fact, we noted that James, in his epistle, tells us exactly what pure and undefiled religion is, namely that it demands that we “visit” (do our best to care for) widows...

Note: This post may seem a bit convoluted, but please bear with me. I’m working through this myself, so it may seem somewhat disjointed. It may also end up being several installments.

Is President Trump Racist?

Written by

The short answer is plain: he was not a racist until he became president of the United States of America, so is all of these attacks simply made up? Let’s take a quick look at the evidence in front of us.

President Trump literally called out the four women in Congress who are often referred to...

It’s a sad day when non-white people can get away with calling anyone who is white racist. But this has become the go-to label for the Left against those with whom they disagree.

Recently, President Trump, disgusted at the hypocrisy and lies of certain Leftists in Congress, called them out,...
