Never Again?

Seventy-six years ago, that portion of World War II that was fought in Europe closed with the Allied Forces’ invasion of Normandy and their relentless, though costly, march on Berlin. With the troops’ subsequent discovery of Hitler’s death camps, the world found itself face to face with genocide of colossal proportions: 11 million dead, more than six million of them Jews. To this unfathomable horror–and to the shocking news that some of the Christian community of Germany was complicit—the vow was voiced around the globe, “Never again!”


A Life Without Fault

For non-believers in the world, the greatest argument against the Christian life is the regular hypocrisy among Christians.  Of course, we are not perfect people, and the Christian life is certainly one of struggle.


Truth is best defined as "fidelity to a standard" meaning that something is true if it matches the object that it is defined by.  God commanded the Israelites to have honest measures to weigh out quantities of foods for payment or sacrifice. 


"Like Father Like Son" is a statement that we sometimes hear around our world today.  It is an unfair analogy and it unjustly hurts people whom are judged by a family member's conduct.  It happened to me in high school.  I, like my brother, played in various band courses but in my tenth grade year when my brother was a senior, he was not the favorite student of the band director. 


Release the Spirit

The Holy Spirit is undoubtedly the most misunderstood part of the Godhead.  We forget that He is a person, has specific roles in the life of the Christian, and even that He is working when we do not directly see his work. 


As The Deer Pants

As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God? (Psalm 42:1-2)

It is no secret that I dwell on the topic of professing Christians not reading the Bible, but why is it that we do not read it as we should?
