Hymns For Devotion

“No matter what Sunday, or what is going on in life, I find a hymn we sing that really tunes into where I am that week and provides answers or gives me food for thought.”


The Resurrection • Luke 24:1-12 (ESV) 1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. 5 And as they were frightened and bowed…

What Is Existentialism?

If you are reading this, then my introduction to philosophy did not scare you off. And if you missed my latest article then consider this forewarning that we are going to be studying the topic of existentialist philosophy, philosophers, and their own philosophies for the next month or so.

Are We Making Excuses For Sin?

I started out to write a response to all of the hullabaloo going on in society – and not just in our country. However, as I was reading, researching, and praying my article took a turn towards sin. I realized that our problem is not a law and order thing – it’s a God thing. As nations we have turned away from how God and Christ told us we needed to live. This nation, and…

Cleaning Up For A Bath

I grew up in the 1980’s at a time when Christian music and entertainment were just starting to grow and come into their own. There were several Christian comedians that cut records and were giving live performances. One such comedian was named Mike Warnke.

Let’s Talk About Sin

As Pastor [Dr. Gene] Scott would say, paraphrasing, “I preach certain messages through the year. Ones that need repeating, and not just to other people, but to me as well.” The issue of “sin.” What it is, and what does committing “sin” mean. These are topics that keep popping up at me lately. The Bible clearly defines what sin is and the consequences of such actions. No matter how we dress it up or dress…

A Patchwork Life

My previous article dealt with Adam’s sin being attached to us. I am thankful that “The Creator of Everything” had spoken another plan into existence that dealt with our redemption. The Law and the idea of the “Kinsman Redeemer.” Let me throw in a “caveat” here. Adam was not forced into the fall by God. Adam had free choice. See, being able to see the future does not mean that the outcome is “fixed” by…

Rain Falls

Why am I in trouble? I’ve not felt like writing for some time now. You know that old adage, “Life gets in the way,” well it’s true. And even though it gets to be a tired excuse sometimes, that is exactly what happens to us. I think the main reason that this holds is that we are in a situation on this Earth where it becomes impossible to maintain that “up” connection with God sometimes….
