Global Warming and God’s Sovereignty

I will not use my time here to discuss the validity of global warming. It is not a spiritual or religious matter but a science issue that has been politicized.  However, it is an issue believed to have a global impact that requires more than an individual response. Yet, the debate does evoke a discussion…

Our Common Ground

     All peoples everywhere are connected across all points of differences by our common ground, what many call our common humanity. Not saying that all beliefs, backgrounds, and experiences are equal. Certainly they are not. The point is that though we appear to be different from one another on the the surface, our inner…

To Those Most Important To Me

I am an armchair philosopher and theologian. I am an armchair sports analyst and political analyst.  I am an armchair sociologist. I am not an armchair person.  I live my life fully engaged with other people. I live my life fully engaged in a higher purpose than what can be known by our material senses.…

Exiles

It is a dangerous path for our nation and her people that our culture has taken an intolerant stance against religious liberty, reasonable faith, and moral soundness.

It defines the believer’s practical daily spiritual life and the truth found when he devotes himself to follow Christ and his way of life. The way of Christ is one that…

Walk In God’s Law

God's law is nothing like man's law. Man's law is the product of a fallen and corrupt race. Man's law only restricts, encumber, punishes, and is corrupted, twisted, and enslaved by its own bureaucracy. It is cold, impersonal, and powerless because it cannot change the heart and soul of a man or woman. Man's law…

It Is Well With My Soul

It is well with my soul because God redeemed me from eternal  destruction and adopted me to be his son for eternity. It is well with my soul because Jesus Christ the Son of God is my Lord  and Savior and Brother. It is well with my soul because the Spirit of God walks with…

God — Not Circumstances

Why should I not hate those who are different from me? We are taught in Christ to forebear one another. We do not forbear simply because it is the right thing to do. The answer has little to do with the reality of the differences. The answer is found in Why we are taught in…
