    One Message

    After the Christmas Eve service we attended in Virginia, my brother-in-law asked a fair question, “When the preacher was speaking, were you critiquing him? I wondered about that since you have been a minister.”  I admitted that, yes, I had in some ways critiqued the sermon.  What I noted was...

    Mary’s Christmas

    The Lord Jesus, in his years of teaching, gave this commentary about child birth. “A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is...

    Fellowship of the Broken Heart

    The book was small, with a dark clothbound cover. “Read this,” said my friend. I looked at the title: “The Tears of God.” That didn’t seem right. God, who spoke the worlds into existence, who parted the sea with His breath, in whose eyes the nations are but a drop...

    Danger Zone

    Many Christians feel as though we have “dodged a bullet” in the recent election. It is true that had the opposite candidate won, the church would have faced difficult times. That candidate had already given the edict that Christian people who did not agree with certain policies would be obliged...

    After the Election It is Time to Preach the Gospel

    If the outcome of the election for President of the United States of America had been different, it would not have changed the number of those belonging to the “better country” of which we believers are citizens. There are neither more nor less now than there would have been had...

    Here’s How I Will Vote

    As a Christian American I believe that it is my duty to vote.  As I understand it, that is part of what was involved in Jesus’ instructions to “render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s.”  Our unique system of government, “of the people, by the people, and for the people,”...

    Are You A Good Person?

      In his recent release of “The Atheist Delusion,” Ray Comfort interviewed several people who professed to be atheists.  When he asked them if they were good people, each one said yes.  Then Comfort asked them if they had ever lied, or stolen, or committed adultery or fornication.  They all...
