What in the world is going on? I have a theory. We are seeing the result of a generation of people raised to believe they should never have to experience disappointment. (The "participation trophy" phenomenon.) Now that their candidate for president has lost they are protesting, skipping classes and threatening to leave the country. What's … Continue reading We must teach our children the truth!
As we look at the current election and collectively grieve the two choices we're faced with, it can almost seem like we have no hope. Those of us that have come of age in the current generation have watched the country deteriorate before our eyes. Unfortunately, I believe the key word in that sentence is … Continue reading What the next generation needs to know
You seem to have made it your mission to convince the world that whatever they believe (or don't believe) is okay. That we're all going to be just fine no matter what. That there are "many ways" to God. I was wondering who's work you think your doing. Do you think when God blessed you … Continue reading Dear Oprah
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. - 1 Timothy 4:1-2 NIV Deception. It's a scary word, especially in a Biblical context.

Are we not, being filled with the Holy Spirit, able to speak the truth in love - even if some are offended by what we have to say? To be clear, as a Christian I … Continue reading Loving Enough to Offend
At times I might shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to devour your crops, or send plagues among you. Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven … Continue reading Pray, Christian, pray!
When God gave the Ten Commandments to the Israelites (his people), he began by reminding them of who he is. - “I am the Lord your God, who rescued you from Egypt, the place of your slavery.” Exodus 20:2When we come to Jesus and ask him to be Lord of our life, he rescues us … Continue reading Don’t concede to the fools
Sometimes it seems that being someone of integrity is not as important as it once was. Or maybe the definition of integrity is changing. I guess it shouldn’t be surprising. The dictionary defines someone with integrity as someone that adheres to “moral and ethical principles”, and society seems to be making changes to what is … Continue reading Integrity
What do we do when someone we love, someone we know has accepted Jesus as their Savior, is allowing a particular sin to become bigger than their relationship with God? What do we do when we see them walking dangerously close to the edge of a choice that will harden their hearts and bring along … Continue reading Rescuing a sinner
