God cannot lie. God cannot lie. God cannot lie. If anyone has any doubt about the integrity of God’s Word, let him rest assured that God cannot lie. It is not that God will not lie, God CANNOT lie. It is absolutely impossible for the God of all... read more

Character can be thought of as what one does when no one else is around. It is easy to play the part when surrounded by people we are trying to impress or be one with, but it is quite a different story when there is no one around but God. Those who... read more

It seems all the news currently is about guns etc. Since most Christians either do not know or refuse to believe what is recorded in the Sermon on the Mount, perhaps it would be wise to look again at what Jesus said in Matthew 5:38, 39, 43 and 44:... read more

I am not sure where or when the criteria for being a good Christian became being obnoxious, stubborn and antagonistic, but it has sure set our wonderful faith back ever since. It seems that everywhere one turns, people are fighting each other in the... read more

In just two weeks we have gone from nursing a very sick old dog in hospice to getting a wonderful big one year old “puppy” with energy and associate mischievousness galore. Instead of all my time being spent caring for, cleaning up after... read more

Far too many times, our lives turn into a ride on the local bullet train. We climb on board, pay the toll, sit down and zoom off toward our destination. Too many times, there is no thought put into the ride for it has become a ritual instead of an... read more

Who is this God we praise, honor, obey and love? Is He a cold and rigid ogre intent on afflicting His people with harm? Is He an indifferent and cold God uninterested in His people’s lot in this life? Is He a God only concerned with purity and... read more

Why do we, as Christians, make things so difficult? Why do we take things that are very simple and turn them into complex puzzles no one can understand? Why do we turn beautiful elements of our walk into complicated and burdensome mazes from which... read more

Time and again I am reminded that the ways of God are far beyond our ability to figure out. Being God, He knows not only what is happening, but what has happened and what will happen in the future. The very basis for trust is found in the ability and... read more

Happy New Year! This is the phrase everyone is saying today. I, for one, fail to understand what all the fuss is about. I have never comprehended what on earth is so special about a new year. Quite by accident, last night I happened to see the ball... read more

Please indulge me as I take a break from being with my dying dog Sheba. My heart is heavy for I wish there was something I could do to ease her pain and calm her down as the cancer in her lungs slowly deprives her of the oxygen it takes to live.... read more

There is a strong probability that Mary and Joseph were teenagers as they made their way to Bethlehem. Being very young they no doubt had very little money and very few possessions. Perhaps this explains why they stayed in Bethlehem for nearly two... read more

What makes a man turn a gun on his own mother and shoot her multiple times? What makes a man go into a school and savagely shoot 26 innocent children and adults? What makes a man race through a school in China with a knife, slashing children along the... read more
