  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Do I Drive a Ford Mustang?

    In 1987 I was 26 years old and I drove a 1985 Ford Mustang GT Convertible: I cannot even hazard a guess today as to the number of speeding tickets I received in that car. Let’s just say there were jokes amongst family members and friends about wall-papering my room with them. At one point […]

  • Is Jesus Christ God?

    The other day I was watching this video on YouTube: It is an hour and forty-one minutes long, however there are some very interesting questions asked with some perspectives given from both a Jewish point of view, and from the point of view of a Gentile. A gentile is easy to define as they are […]

  • Have You Heard The Voice?

    Have you seen the NBC show The Voice? If you have, you are (kind of) one up on me because I have not watched even one episode (at least not a complete episode). What I have watched however are quite a few YouTube compilations of the “best” auditions (at least in the opinion of those […]

  • Who DID America Vote For?

    The United States of America Elections are over and Americans believe they know who they voted for and that their vote counted. But do they really? I have voted in 10 US Presidential elections. I remember the previous 3 US Presidents prior to my first vote. And while there have certainly been jokes and allegations […]

  • What is your cause?

    Pastor’s are not supposed to have a “cause” other than preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was always taught that you preach TO the people not AT the people. Unfortunately, even preaching TO the people (or just being a prophet in your own time) is more often than not interpreted as preaching AT the […]

  • Are You Living on the Other Side of the BUT …?

    Three friends of mine, whom I’ve mentioned in the past, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, found themselves facing quite a predicament one afternoon.  They faced a situation where they could do what God had said to do, or they could do what man had said to do.  But they couldn’t do both. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego […]

  • Are You The Redeemed of the Lord?

    One of the more interesting dynamics of the Christian Faith to me is the argument that as the Elect of God, we are perfectly in his hands.  Never to have calamity or evil ever cross our paths again.  These are the “feel good” Christians.  The idea that “if God be for me, who can be […]

  • Do You Make A Difference?

    In 2008 The Oak Ridge Boys asked the question “Did I make a difference in somebody’s life?” through a pretty thoughtful melody. They inspired people though song to consider whether or not they were making a difference in the world in which we all live.  The song is asking us whether or not we are […]
