Common Sense

I will make this short and to the point. I do not question anyone’s faith. Until it starts to affect me. If you want to believe God will protect you from the Coronavirus, then fine, I pray He ...

How Far Does Grace Reach?

The Meaning of Life

The proverbial question, what is the meaning of life? It has taken me almost 62 years to understand that question. At least to me, it is not so much the meaning but what makes me happy in life....

Reality

Reality is hard to face at times. But then it’s not like we have a choice. Living in the land of denial doesn’t work. And when it comes to my Faith, some days it just seems to be on vacation. ...

A House Divided

Christ taught this principle in Matthew 12 and Abraham Lincoln used the same idea after he had accepted the Illinois Republican Party’s nomination as that state’s US senator. Both men were wise ...

Silence

Somedays there just isn’t anything to say. It’s not life is too hard or that everything is going my way. Just sometimes there is silence inside my head. As is today. I shall enjoy it. ...

Do Unto Others...And Then Run.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Unless you are the one dispensing the dish and then it’s more like some like it hot. Nothing worse than a luke-warm beer. (okay there are millions of things...

Death with Dignity

Okay, faithful readers, you know how I feel about death. I will not go gently into that good night. No, I will fight the death angel all the way to the Pearly Gates. Streets of God sounds nice...

What are we fighting for?

There has been a long-standing war between Christians. None of the different camps can agree on unity, which is really sad, because that is what Jesus prayed for the night He was betrayed. Iron...

But God!

Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion’s guestroom. Instead, the angels were given ...

The Greatest Is Love

Love comes in many different forms. But unconditional love is a rare find these days. The writer of Proverbs wrote, Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord. ...

This Is A Test

In case I haven’t said it, I hate tests! Don’t care what type they are, I hate them. In my case instead of proving how smart I am they show I dumb I am. What amazes me that some material I can...

Just To Talk To

Somedays I miss having someone to talk to. My job is pretty much one that I do not interact with people. I do my job and leave. I am in my office listening to music, catching up on my studies ...

The Depths of my sin

“For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God” Romans 3:23. Short is a relative term. Let me demonstrate what I mean. For every single degree, you fly off course, you will miss y...

Forgiven, Forgotten, Amen

Okay listeners, here is the topic for today. I am not sure there are any right or wrong answers but here goes. Matt 12:31 reads, Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy (every evil, a...

The Sum of All Fears

I make no bones about the fact I fear death. Well, like most maybe not so much death but the process. What really happens when we die? Can anyone tell us for sure? Some say nothing happen...

Wavering Faith

Somedays my faith isn’t just wavering, it is waving. My former pastor used to say you can’t have a testimony without a test! I have never liked test. I could have been a straight-A student, ex...

I am not perfect

One thing I have learned to admit when I am wrong. The trouble is, some folks don’t like to let me forget how wrong I am. I don’t live up to the standards some thing I should. But I decide...

One Nation, Under God

One Nation to me implies in agreement. I am not sure that America has ever been in agreement since our Founding Fathers framed our Constitution. But I am almost certain we are nowhere near what ...


“Jesus is ideal and wonderful, but you Christians, you are not like him.” Indian philosopher Bara Dada is credited with making this statement. If it weren’t so true I would take offense at it. T...

Red and White

Dogmatic goes back to the Greek word dogma, which means basically “what one thinks is true” and dogmatikos, “pertaining to doctrine.” To be dogmatic is to follow a doctrine relating to morals and...

Heaven For Me

The ultimate goal of the Christian. Heaven. Why do people who have never seen Heaven want to go there so bad, but yet are afraid to die? (And the answers are many.) What is it about death...

Setting Up For Failure

Facebook is from the devil! Just like Tupperware. Studies have shown that people who do not have a Facebook account are happier. The reason? I am glad you ask. (You did ask didn’t you?) Fac...

Point of No Return

Pilots know this terminology. It is the point in their route that they have to decide can we make it to our destination or should we turn back. If they miss judge their fuel consumption, wind s...
