What Did You Sign Up For?

October 22, 2021

There are two things I have never done (actually, there are millions of things I have never done). But you know what I mean. The first is that I have never walked into a military recruiter’s office. But I imagine some of their spiel, “Come see the world”; “The GI bill will be waiting for you”; “You will learn to be all you can be”; stuff like that. The second is I have never sat through a time share presentation. But I imagine some of their pitch being, “You can own property all over the world”; “No more tents or…

A Resurrection Ahead

October 14, 2021

Spurgeon once said that when God begins to work, it always looks more like an undoing than a doing. That is because it is often necessary to tear down before one can build up. Or, as the numerous home improvement shows on television demonstrate, demolition is the first task of the remodel. The best stories often take you to the brink, all hope lost; and then, the reversal or ending no one saw coming leaves the reader aghast. Mouth open, left in wonderment, we mutter to no one in particular, “I didn’t see that coming!” The greatest storyteller of all…

Oatmeal Christianity

October 8, 2021

It’s bland. It has little taste, color, or smell. It goes down easy, really easy—no chewing necessary. I’m not talking about oatmeal. I’m talking about evangelicalism. It’s mild, plain, and vapid. It’s been told to stay in the corner and it has for years. It has been told to stay within its four-walls and it obediently has done so. The secularists have built a fence called separation of church and state. The pulpits have built fences, too, separating the Kingdom of God from the Kingdom of man. The secularists like the rules. If there is no God in the public…

A Primer for Non-Christians

September 9, 2021

We Christians can be a strange and frustrating bunch. We claim Jesus as Lord and Savior and often don’t live like it. We know that. We are not proud of it. There is no excuse for it. We find ourselves regularly confessing our failings to God. We probably should confess more to you, as well, given that our offenses are often committed against others. It would be humbling but our Lord loves humility. Maybe some more explanation will help explain us to you, as well. There are a number of social and cultural matters important to us. It is the…

A Word to our Governor

September 2, 2021

I have not hidden my animus for our state’s governor. Virtually every decision, every policy, and every signed law is a reminder that the man who lives in the governor’s mansion is a snake. If I needed any more confirmation (which I did not), it came down yesterday in his latest press release. For those who may not have heard, Texas recently passed a law that bans most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, the time the tiny baby’s heart can be detected. The law went into effect September 1. Planned Parenthood and their ilk petitioned the United States Supreme…
