  • What do you believe?

    What do you believe?

    Is what you believe important?

    Is it possible to be very sincere, and very wrong in what you believe?

    God chose you before the beginning of time. He knitted you together in your mother’s womb. Men, by there very nature, reject God. Perishing humanity and limitless love.

    God provided a rescue plan for sinful condemned men. He did for us what we could not do for ourselves. He sent his son — a rescue plan of love.

  • How did our country get to where it is today?

    Where in the Constitution of the United States does it give the government control of public toilets?

    When did we give up the rights of 98 percent of the population of this country to protect the preferences of the 2 percent of the population that claim to be homosexual or trans-gender?

    Whatever happened to common sense, respect for others, and common human decency?

    I sometimes feel that I have lived to be too old. I have seen changes take place in our country that I would have never thought possible only a few years ago.

  • The other side of the coin — who is Christ in you?

    Who are you in Christ?

    I appreciate Mr. Thompson’s focus on that question in last week’s column. No doubt about it that is an extremely important discovery to grasp. But, there is another side of the coin you equally need to grasp — who is Christ in you?

    Why is this other side so important?

  • What’s important in your life?

    Many years ago, I befriended an elderly gentleman who lived in a nursing home near Dresden, Tennessee.

    Mr. Garner was in his mid-80s, with failing health but had a very sharp mind.

    Frequently, if I was in Dresden on business, I would go by the nursing home and take Mr. Garner with me as I did my business to give him a break form his bleak living conditions.
