  • Am I a miserable sinner? You bet

    I am often asked by those who read my column if I actually “walk the walk” or practice what I write here in the paper.
    The answer is I try.
    Do I fail miserably at times? You bet I do. The truth is I often feel either like I am a failure at being a Christian or at best a lukewarm Christian.
    What the scriptures tell us about lukewarm Christians in Rev 3:16 is: “because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”

    There will be no 8:30 a.m. worship service, the church announced.
    “If you’ve never had an authentic experience with the prophetic, or a close encounter with the one who is the source of all things, this is your opportunity,” the church said in a news release to describe Stamman.

  • A different sort of wish for 2012

    I heard someone pray that they wanted peace and comfort in their life for the New Year.
    I understand this type of prayer, as I want the same, much like I am sure most of us do.
    However, Christ promised us a very different life if we want to follow him. Matthew 10:34-35, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword, for I am come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”

  • Do you study or just leave God tips?

    I have had two people tell me within the last week how we just need to know and follow the basics of the Bible.
    One of them was a family member and another was a close friend. Both of them basically said we just do our best and stressed that serious focus on understanding and studying the Bible was not really necessary.
    I think this is pretty common thinking for a lot of professing Christians. However, I think the Bible tells us quite the opposite.

  • If Jesus fasted, why don’t we follow suit?

    Have you ever fasted? Please email me if you have and tell me about your experience.
    I know hundreds if not thousands of professing Christians, but only one or two who have ever fasted.
    I have friends in another country that are Christians who fast often.
    Why don’t American Christians? Why don’t churches, families and your local preacher encourage fasting as a part of Christian living?

  • Closer to the sky, closer to God

    One of the most neglected symbols of the church is the empty tomb.
    With the launch sequence of Christmas already counting down, we are familiarized again with the symbols of: the manger, the shepherds, the wise men, the angels, etc. Then there’s the reason Jesus Christ came into this world: the cross.
    Where would we be without the empty tomb? It is our symbol of victory. I Corinthians 15:16 reminds us: “If Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins (KJV).”
