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

What Really Happened in Hawaii According to Q?

You may recall the announcement regarding incoming missiles in Hawaii back on January 13, 2018. As we all know, the attack turned out to be false, but many people blamed President Trump because they have been told that he wants nothing more to get his itchy finger on the nuclear trigger switch to...

Book of Numbers is More than Just Numbering Israelites

Written by

I’ve begun reading through the book of Numbers as I follow my daily Bible reading plan. I will say at the outset that I’m getting a great deal more out of my daily readings than I did last year. It does amaze me as I watch facts jump out at me that I certainly read last year but...

All Those Rules and Regulations Speaks to Depravity

Written by

I know of no other country where people illegally there get free education, free housing, free food, and free social programs. Jesus would not approve of this.

The hate of the Left proves they are bereft. They are lawless. Though many believe they are authentic Christians, their hatred gives them...

A Warning for ALL Evangelical Churches

Written by

Is it ENTERTAINMENT or WORSHIP?

I can say this from my own experience. Every church we ever attended and eventually left, we did so for one reason: the church atmosphere slid away from true biblical values toward the emotional, feel-good end of things. It ends up where people are taught by osmosis...

King Ahab and Jezebel, Part 3

Written by

We are moving along in our discussion of King Ahab and his domineering wife, Jezebel. A perfect storm is brewing that we learn of in 1 Kings 18-19, where Elijah the prophet of Jehovah stands against the many prophets of Baal in a contest that will undoubtedly declare Jehovah the supreme winner, as if there was any doubt.

As we noted in our second...

King Ahab and Jezebel, Part 2

King Ahab was not someone you wanted to cross as Naboth eventually learns.

In the first part of this short series, we introduced the situation that ultimately leads up to Elijah and the contest on Mt. Carmel between the prophets of Baal and God Himself. We spoke of some of the history that eventually led to Ahab becoming king over Israel....

King Ahab and Jezebel, Part 1

Written by

King Ahab’s covetousness led him to eventually murder Naboth over a vineyard.

When you consider the history of Israel, how that nation was created by God to be a theocracy (directly ruled by God), but then God gave them a human king because the people of Israel demanded it, and ultimately how bad most of those kings were for Israel, it...

So What Should We Do With Donald Trump?

The race toward the presidency has officially narrowed down to two candidates: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. As far as I’m concerned, neither is fit for the office of president, but that seems to be the way things have been steered for some time.

But what is a Christian to do with respect to these two candidates? Do we need someone who is...

Moses: Anger, My Greatest Regret

Written by

Recently, I presented a study at my local church on Moses and his evidenced anger recorded in Numbers 20. There, he was at the rock in the wilderness of Zin (second time in nearly 40 years), and once again, just as before, the people needed water for themselves and their herds. Interesting how history can tend to repeat itself and in this case,...
