We are in grave times.  Of course I knew that long ago, but things have been brooding in my mind and heart for a while now.  I am kept so busy that I can rarely have a few minutes to myself.  I am not sure when this began, but I assume near the end of 2006 when I was gearing up for my last year of work on my doctoral program.

Sick of the Political Christians


Well, it has been a while since I have posted, and even longer since I sat down to write a new post, but my heart is full with a problem that I perceive.  I do not follow politics a whole lot, particularly what the news media pushes all the time.  It seems to me that most of where I get my information is from church going people who usually completely attack one particular party while blindly following another.

Hook, Line, and Sinker

How many of us still sin after we are regenerated? The answer is all of us! When we are regenerated, however, we start to know what we do that is a sin, and what we do that is not a sin. The bottom line is that we still sin. How? Because we still have a part of our old fleshy, sinful nature. It is still wrong, it will cause chastisement by God if not handled properly. James 1:13-15 tell us the mechanism for our sin. By understanding the mechanism, we can overcome sin in our life.

Suppose there is a book endorsed as a having "the potential to do our generation what John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress did for his." We would assume the presence of a book that Christians would want to flock to for some keen insights. Well, that book is being flocked to, but with some concern by some Christians. I, personally, am quite concerned about the new best-selling book "The Shack" by William P. Young.

Saint Patrick - A Life Well Lived

We are here again at March 17, a day set apart as Saint Patrick’s Day. What does all that mean? Are we like Alex Jefferson on Adventures in Odyssey who is wearing a green sweater for no other reason than his mom wanted him to wear it because of this mysterious day? I recall that very reason in my early life! “It is Saint Patrick’s Day, you need to wear green!” is the common phrase of people getting ready in the morning all throughout America on this day. I, also, was caught up in all these things in my early life, as a non-believer, wearing green, for no reason. Why?

In the present state of the world, reaching out with the Gospel can be a challenging thing to do. Especially if you are reaching out into the public school system. If it seems like a lost cause, kicking against the goads, the impossible mission, then think again. I do some work with Child Evangelism Fellowship.
