Where have my BLOG posts been?
I’ve been retired from the U.S. Department of Defense for about 15 months now. And one of my activities in retirement was supposed to be more writing. More to the point I was planning on weekly and monthly posts on this site. After all, I’ve invested a fair bit of money into it since 2014. […]
Where Was Jesus From?
Over the years I have often heard the phrase ‘Every church has one’, and in every single case it was not meant to refer to a piece of architecture within the building. Oh sure, you could say every church has a cross. Which would probably be true of most protestant churches. But that is not […]
Who Owns Death? (Part II)
I left off this topic in part I with Satan having stolen the spiritual life of humanity from God. 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is […]
Who Owns Death? (Part I)
Death is a subject that may not interest very many people. For some it may be something that looms over their head that they just don’t want to think about. For others it may be a mystery that grips the heart with fear. Still others have some morbid fascination with death that defies logic and […]
What Will Wisdom Gain You?
I come from a family of fairly well-educated individuals. My paternal grandfather was a public-school administrator, my parents, an aunt, and my sister all hold (or held) advanced degrees from well-known accredited universities. My father graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Electrical Engineering. I, on the other hand, failed to graduate from High […]
Do You Practice What You Preach?
[For the second time in a very short period of time I find myself breaking one of my primary rules for a fixed length BLOG and making a long post (about 2.6 times longer than my average). I realize that your time is a precious commodity and that time spent on one resource (on the […]
When Do We Commit to Life?
Here is something I penned some 17 years ago concerning Terri Schiavo and her husband’s decision to remove her from life support: The question then, as it is today, is when do you commit to life (or not)? When we realize that life is a gift from God, and that it is He who grants […]
Are We In Danger?
One of the earliest TV Shows I can remember watching as a child was Lost in Space, which ran for 3 seasons from September 15, 1965 to March 6, 1968. The show was iconic for its time airing a full year before the premiere of another iconic science fiction show, Star Trek. An interesting piece […]
Can Christians Have Humor?
One of the older misgiven stereotypes of Christians is that they are old dried-up humorless sourpusses. This image of Christians is probably not as prevalent in the world today as it was during my youth, however, the idea is still somewhat alive even if not articulated in the same way it was a few decades […]
Can Our Country Be Saved?
Today’s BLOG post is long, the longest post I’ve made to date. Still, I hope you will take the time to read through to the end, prayerfully consider the implications in your own life, and share with others. Thank you so much for reading and may God richly bless each and every one of you. […]
