    A NEW YEAR. I think that many of us are glad for a new year to come. Though we are yet to behold what 2021 might bring, 2020 was a rollercoaster that most of us are ready to get off of. And although 2021 is uncertain, and although we know that  difficult days are ahead… Read more

  • Should Christians Support the Death Penalty?

    December 16, 2020 by

    Capital Punishment is a current hot button political issue. The question is this: Is the death penalty archaic barbarism that should end with the likes of slavery and medieval torture? or is it an acceptable and necessary form of punishment for a civilized society? The debate rages in our political spheres, but more specifically for… Read more

    Thankful. One thing should never change in the life of a Christian, and that is the practice of thanksgiving. “In EVERYTHING give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Giving thanks is not just a nice thing for us to to do, it is a sure… Read more

    The Future of Our Nation I am pessimistic about the future of our nation. I do not believe that we will have a great nation-wide revival (although we could). I do not believe that our nation will continue much longer as the great powerhouse that it has been.  But this does’t mean that I don’t… Read more

  • Can a Christian be a Democrat? [Video]

    October 20, 2020 by

    What party should a Christian vote for? In this video, I seek to demonstrate how it has become increasingly more difficult to be both a Democrat and a follower of Christ. I have no desire to be political, but I do have a desire to help people, and to build the kingdom of God. An… Read more

    Praying for our Nation. In about a month, we all head to the polls to vote in the midst of a political climate that is more volatile than we have ever experienced in our lifetime.

  • Can a Christian be a Democrat?

    September 15, 2020 by

    Can a Christian be a Democrat? It’s not fun to write so plainly on an issue like this. I don’t mean to cause division or stir up hard feelings. However, I do think that it is necessary to be plain and speak clearly, in a spirit of love, on issues that are important and that… Read more

    Enduring Through Challenges. In our family Bible reading time, we have again come to my favorite story in the scripture, the story of Joseph. I consider it to be among the greatest of all stories. It is a story of betrayal, of suffering, of endurance, and, ultimately, of great triumph. What’s remarkable about the story… Read more

  • Would Jesus have Spanked His Kids?

    February 5, 2020 by

    I recently read a comment on a video I was in that went something like this, “Minister: ‘I try to raise my children according to the Bible.’ Also Minister: ‘I spank my kids.’” In other words, this commenter seemed to think it quite the contradiction that a person who claims to follow the teachings of… Read more

    Cutting Out Parts of the Bible Is the Word of God worth defending? Are there some parts, which might taboo in the world today, better left out of public conversation?

    January 15, 2020 by

    What if your stance on Biblical truth jeopardized your livelihood? Would you stay silent? Should we speak freely regarding all Biblical truth? Is it ok to shy away from certain issues to avoid suffering and loss? These are questions that we need to take really seriously right now. There are many Christians who are being scared into… Read more

  • I Did A Survey on Spankings…Look What I Discovered

    January 7, 2020 by

    Have you heard about the latest study that has come out on spanking? What were the results? “Spankings are ineffective and harmful for children” is the usual answer. I have nothing against studies, but these studies have always been suspect to me. I myself was spanked as a kid. I didn’t turn out so great… Read more

  • Was the Holocaust the Judgment of God?

    December 3, 2019 by

    That on you (Pharisees) may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth Jesus (Matthew 23:35) It’s not popular to talk about the judgment of God, especially in the circle of Christians that I have typically run with. This is partly due to error regarding the judgment of God, with some going so far to… Read more

    Thanksgiving is Much More Important than You Think. Thanksgiving. I don’t mean the day. I mean the act—the act of giving thanks. Its importance can’t be emphasized enough.
