There Were Great Searchings of Heart

There Were Great Searchings of Heart

There is a story in the book of Judges about a woman named Deborah.  I first read this story as a teenager and have always been mystified by a phrase that occurs two times in this story:  there were great searchings of heart.  I think I understand it now. Deborah was a prophetess.  At the […]

Could you please move?

Could you please move?

I don’t remember how old I was.  It was probably when I was 10-11.  I was watching a show on television, by myself.  I don’t remember the name of the show.  A man had received a ring from another man and it had this inscription “with love.”  Another character struggled to understand if perhaps one […]

God Blesses the Wise and Confounds the Foolish

God Blesses the Wise and Confounds the Foolish

The message comes from Matthew 2:1-12. This passage is about the visit of the Magi and the schemes of a devious King, Herod.  The wise men, not knowing Herod’s true character, interact with him and believe him to be as sincere as they are.  This is not the case.  Herod’s desire was to kill Christ […]

Creation Museum Visit

Creation Museum Visit

Earlier in the year, I heard the Creation Museum was offering free admission to children aged 12 and under.  I checked it out and sure enough, it is true.  We have six children and the oldest is 11.  We live 4 ½ hours from the museum so this was a no brainer.  In the paragraphs […]

But There Is a Resurrection

But There Is a Resurrection

Recently, an Iranian man faced death by hanging for a murder he committed. The mother of the victim, expected to initiate the hanging, instead forgave him and subsequently freed him. This surprises us because it happened in Iran and it wasn’t supposed to go that way. He was supposed to hang. This is the resurrection. […]

Relational Integrity: No Props Needed

Relational Integrity:  No Props Needed

We were once complete, emotionally. When we were in the Garden of Eden we knew who we were before God.  After the Fall a sickness entered into our souls.  We crave acceptance, respect, and love and we go looking for it from other people.  We desperately want to be admired and lauded. Undeterred by notions […]

23 Minutes in Hell?

23 Minutes in Hell?

Hell is not a subject any of us enjoy. Even those who believe in the biblical teaching of hell do not rush into conversations about it. Hell introduces ideas of punishment, torment, and finality at a level we cannot truly fathom. Those who do not believe in hell mock and ridicule the idea since it […]

The Log College

The Log College

When I was undergoing my ministerial training a professor spoke favorably of a book written by Archibald Alexander, entitled “The Log College.”  He noted that the book was out of print, the last printing being put out by Banner of Truth 1968.  The book seemed to me, then, unattainable.  Solid Ground Christian Books did come […]

Resolutions

Resolutions

Do you have some New Year’s resolutions?  Chances are you have certainly thought about setting some resolutions for the New Year.   New calendar years afford opportunities for change and adjustment.  If we want to make serious systemic changes then now is as good a time as any to do that.  What I would like to […]

The War on Christmas

The War on Christmas

Over the last ten or so years we have been hearing a lot about the “War on Christmas.”  What I would like to do in this blog is explore this phrase and consider what it is.  Naturally, I would like to give some insight on how a believer might respond to this “War on Christmas.” […]
