  • Ignoring God didn’t work for pharaoh, and certainly won’t work for you

    It’s interesting how we often try to follow God’s rules on our terms, not his.
    How many times have we thought about trying to quit sinning, yet plan on doing it again?
    I know I have, and in my mind often think, “Well maybe next week or next month or later in life I will stop doing that.”
    The pharaoh of Egypt in the book of Exodus kept putting off God’s commands when he kept the children of Israel in slavery. God brought about plague after plague against the tyranny of the Egyptians.

  • Five hundred witnesses can’t be wrong

    I am often perplexed by those who do not believe the Bible is real or believe in Jesus.
    Hundreds of original manuscripts of the Bible exist today. Hundreds of eyewitnesses saw Jesus crucified and rise. These are the documented facts.
    The Bible is not some elaborate fable or book of thoughts. It is no less than the inspired word of God.  There have been many manipulations of what the Bible says by various religions, but its words are the same today as they were 2,000 years ago.

  • In good times and bad, God is in control

    Have you experienced great loss in your life, like a death in the family or financial troubles?
    I am sure you have and have asked God, “Why me?”
    Personal suffering is part of life but as Christians, aren’t we just clay in the potter’s hands? Right now I know a lot of people are suffering, especially due to the economic situation locally and nationally.  I believe sometimes we go through bad circumstances to have a closer relationship with our creator.

  • Reader offers thoughts on fasting

    I wrote a column a few weeks ago questioning why I do not see American Christians fasting, or why it is not more a part of our culture.
    I was blessed to get some rewarding feedback from one of my readers, “Pat,” and would like to share some of her experiences that I find inspiring.
    These are her words, not mine, and I hope you may find it interesting and perhaps useful in your own spirituality, and perhaps adopt fasting as a part of your own walk with God.

  • Drop the phony facade or lose everything

    Thanks to the magic of DVR I’ve been watching the first three seasons of “Mad Men.”
    Set in the early 1960s, the series is about a New York Madison Avenue advertising firm, centering around one character, Don Draper, who heads the creative department.
    He’s a fascinating character — aloof, suave and handsome and morally bankrupt. He’s married with two kids, but he sleeps with anything in a skirt. It’s not uncommon for him to not come home for a few days.

  • Think you’re a ‘decent’ Christian?

    If we as Christians go to church every Sunday, try not to do bad things and perhaps even tithe, aren’t we pretty much on the path of salvation?
