I have learned many things about God the past 40 years. Perhaps one of the biggest is that He is far less of a stickler for rules than many believe yet far more interested in our doing what He says than most believe. In many respects, God appears to... read more

Back when I was 21 years old, there was a beautiful young woman whom many of us men in the Bible School I attended wanted to go out with. That year I was traveling around the country conducting classes and seminars for groups of people involved with... read more

What if this really was the last day we had to live this life as we know it? Would this day be any different than all that came before it? Would the things that were so important last week still be of any importance today? God, in His infinite wisdom,... read more

I am both puzzled and intrigued by the emphasis placed upon one s "career" by both Christians and nonChristians alike. People tend to treat their career as the absolute most important thing in their lives. In fact, for many people, their... read more

Sitting at the restaurant with about fifteen ministry leaders at a ministry conference a few years ago, I was totally taken back as the man in charge bragged about the brand new 50,000 pickup truck he just got because of an increase in offerings at... read more

According to some Christians, next Saturday (May 21st) will be the end of the world. Evidently, according to them, there will be a monster earthquake that will destroy the world and at the same time all Christians will be taken away to heaven. Those... read more

Since I am somewhat of an expert on moving heavy things, I can attest to the fact that there are some things that must be pushed and some which must be pulled to get them to move. I am reminded of the futility in trying to pull or push a stubborn... read more

It grieves me greatly when I see Christians using their faith as a means to getting bigger, better and more things in their life. Faith is not a vehicle to get things but rather the very way to endure not having all the world calls important. Using... read more

There was a time when the world was full of selfserving people whose main purpose was to please themselves through allowing unbridled greed and lust to run unchecked. Since it is impossible for this kind thinking to coexist with God, the result was... read more

When God says something, it is considered to be His Word. When God gives His Word regarding something it is infallible and cannot be broken. If God says the sea is going to part, then it is going to part no matter how impossible it seems. If God says... read more

I was fussing with someone yesterday about our current financial plight and implying that there was "no way out". It felt good to be honest but in that honesty is danger that the silly notions mentioned might be believed. Thankfully the... read more

Jesus did not tell us that we can pray and cast EVERY mountain into the sea. He simply laid out the truth that if the time ever came to do so, it would be available. Jesus did not tell Peter that he could ALWAYS walk on the water. He simply showed... read more

I am not going to say that I have many warm and fuzzy memories of my mom, for I do not. I loved my mom dearly, but due to her physical problems and other issues, she was not always an easy person to get along with. Considering the poverty she grew up... read more

Standing by a mountain stream outside of Santa Fe New Mexico in October 1987 I made a simple request to the Lord. I asked Him to please teach me something that would help me and in turn help others the rest of my life. I was led to pick up a small... read more

We live in a world that has gone mad. If there is one thing I can say with full certainty, it is that most of what can be read or heard streaming from various media outlets is nothing but lies, propaganda and spin. As the events of this week drag on... read more

Last evening we watched episode number of 3 of "Little House on the Prairie" which aired in 1974. I could not help but cry as first I thought of how corrupt and wicked television has become the past 37 years and more importantly the... read more
