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…

Still More on that Religious Exemption

August 26, 2021

Church Family, Forced and/or coerced COVID-19 vaccination mandates are being imposed on several of our members. The previous two blogs have addressed the egregious overreach that is being played. Attached you will find our church’s “Statement on Mandatory Medical Procedures.” You will also find a letter we will be making available for our members seeking a “Religious Exemption” from their employer. This Sunday (August 29), we will be hosting a gathering to provide more information and answer questions regarding how to request a “Religious Exemption.” At that time, we also will make available the attachments, signed and on church letterhead,…
