  • Why Christian Nationalism is Both Heretical and Non-Scriptural

    The so-called Christian Nationalist movement has no actual foundation for existence short of embodying the metaphorical “wolf in sheep’s clothing”. This movement only seems to be embraced by a small number of followers, but that number could be increasing. According to the Washington Post, Christian Nationalism is an ideology that says Christianity is the foundation […]

  • The Time Jesus Preached and Nobody Got Saved

    The fourth chapter of Luke describes a scene infamously used by preachers everywhere.  Jesus came to the temple in Nazareth as was His habit.  He came to speak and was handed the scroll containing Isaiah 61:1-2: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,    because he has anointed me    to proclaim good news to the […]

  • Humility Lost?

    No matter where you look, it seems that the civility, the finesse the restraint that used to characterize public interactions is gone missing.  Stuck with so much controversy and angst, I ran across Matthew 18:3 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of […]

  • The Calculus of Romans Five

    The Word of God is alive, mystic and illustrative. The Holy Spirit inspired it all and through Saint Paul gave us these verses: Therefore, since we have been justified [that is, acquitted of sin, declared blameless before God] by faith, [let us grasp the fact that] we have peace with God [and the joy of […]

  • Romans 4:4

    We say the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  We use its 783,000 words to justify and bless court procedures, weddings, funerals and baptisms and blessing our babies.  I would remind you that “Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training […]

    Father God; We praise and thank you for your Almighty power and Omniscient grace that allowed us to see this day . . . This day when rescuers search for survivors in a South Florida building collapse This day when several states in the west are experiencing severe heat and desperately need your rain This […]

  • Now Faith Is . . .

    A dear friend of mine shared that many of my blog articles discuss topics beyond her understanding in the Christian faith. She was looking for material that would provide an introduction to important subject matter. I am beginning a series called “In Beginnings” that I hope will fit this needed niche. The first miracle detailed […]

  • There’s only One Christmas Spirit!

    My Nana was the first to ask if we had the Christmas spirit. Other people would ask if we had “caught” the Christmas spirit.  Later, I realized that most people misspoke about what they imagined the Christmas spirit to be. People tended to speak of the joy of giving and receiving, the peace of warm […]

  • Where is glory found? [part 1]

    It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. God’s Glory is not hidden The glory of God surrounds us and is displayed in dramatic awe in the sky above and throughout the earth.  “The Psalmist declares: the Heavens declare the glory of God […]
