  • Helping disgruntled readers avoid God’s wrath

    I received an email from a reader of mine who doesn’t like “my brand of religion” and who said, “If there is a God, and he is a loving, merciful one, how could he possibly want you [me] as his spokesperson?”
    The reader claims I am selling sin and damnation and says I am depressing others. I would like to address all of these concerns.
    I do not consider myself to have a brand of religion, even though I am Baptist. I consider the Bible to be the inspired word of God and it is all I rely on to write my column.

  • Don’t pick and choose when God calls

    What does your life say about your actual commitment to being person that the God of the Bible calls you to be?
    If you stop almost anyone in Anderson County to ask if her or she believes in God, the response would be overwhelmingly affirmative, yet our actions mostly belie our words.
    James 2:18: "Yes a man may say ‘You have faith and I have works’; show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”

  • God’s view on racism is crystal clear

    I want to talk about a very touchy subject this week: racism.
    What does the Bible tell us about racism? I think a lot of people look down on other ethnicities at times. It might be an off color joke or just stereotyping a group. I don’t have to be candid with this.

  • Jeremiah’s words still ring true today

    Jeremiah is such an interesting character of the Bible. He authored Jeremiah and Lamentations. Jeremiah was a very much-hated man because of his prophecies.
    He was scoffed at, people plotted to kill him, and he was commanded to remain celibate and not to participate in public celebrations.
