Hope Rising

  Two weeks ago in this space I wrote about “Killing Marriage.” Since then, the U.S. Supreme Court has made a decision that expands the definition of marriage and also increases the likelihood of more lethal attacks on God’s institution. However, since that decision, have fewer people been saved than before?...

Killing Marriage

Something really bad has been happening to marriage.  I am not referring here to whatever the Supreme Court has in mind on the subject.  Less than fifty years ago and not long after I graduated from high school, the U. S. government published their finding that ten per cent of...

How “Muslim” is Your Faith?

Finding forgiveness for sins and peace with God are very important to anyone who is not an atheist or an agnostic.  The acknowledgement that there is One who inhabits eternity brings with it a sense of awe and also that unsettled feeling of being unworthy to be in His presence....

What’s Wrong With Evangelicals?

There has been a certain amount of concern expressed over the lack of depth of conversions in recent years, particularly in North America.  Statistics have shown that the moral climate among evangelical young people is almost no different than that among non-believers.  And among evangelical churches, the rate of family...

Inverted Morality

Who’s to say what is right and wrong?  That was a question that the radicals in the 1960’s often asked.  Those of us who were among them and heard their arguments realized that they wanted to throw off the restraints of Christian beliefs that had been historically embraced by our...

Backslide Proofing

When a married man is attracted to an unmarried woman, that attraction is unlawful.  It is to be immediately turned from.  When a man is attracted to another man, it is an unlawful attraction.  It also must be spurned.  The same is true of a woman, who leaving her natural...

Demon Possession: Contemporary Style

One hundred years ago (1915) a political party known as the Young Turks implemented a policy designed to destroy the population of Armenians from the Ottoman Empire.  By 1923 their policy resulted in effectively eliminating the entire Armenian population.  Armenian communities were destroyed, their refugees fled across borders to the...

Holiness is a Beautiful Thing

It was the concept of holiness that brought a reaction at a Bible study I was conducting.  “I don’t like that word,” candidly stated a lady seated in our circle.  Instead of relegating her to the group slanderously identified as “holiness fighters,” I tried to understand why she had such...

How to Defeat Tyrants

Two liberal “celebrities” have very recently shown a strain of tyranny underlying their beliefs.  At the 2015 Women in the World Summit, Hillary Clinton stated her wish to force a pro-abortion mentality on everyone.   “Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and...
