False Teaching, Among the People…?

Image: renjith krishnan / FreeDigitalPhotos.net I sat in class one Sunday and thought the pastor was kidding, then I realized he was totally serious.  As he proceeded to recount how he always felt “used” by people when he does something as a favor to them, he concluded that you cannot give to people without requiring [...]

Our Love Story, 36 Years & Counting – The Love Song & Beautiful

  Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4 (RSV) Marriage is an exercise in perseverance.  Endurance training in relationships is a key to successful marriages.  I am of the opinion that success in relationships in general is found by directing Phil 2:3 to your spouse [...]

Marriage is to be held in honor…

  Next Monday, February 13th, 2012, my wife and I celebrate our 36th anniversary.  Probably 37 or 38 years ago, we discussed getting married and made one primary commitment to each other:  Divorce would NEVER be an option for our relationship once we were married.  PERIOD.  This commitment was based upon our faith in Jesus [...]

The Others…

I started writing this blog after meeting with one of the Pastors at the church we are currently attending, having shared with him the struggles I face as a man who has persistently pursued  ministry for the past 38 years.

The Extinction that Almost Happened

I read a tweet today that raised my eyebrows just a bit.  We have all probably seen the Hollywood versions of the story; a massive comet or asteroid is heading toward earth and will impact, extinguishing all life on this planet.  This may be what happened to the dinosaurs… Well, apparently this almost happened to [...]

We Shall Never Forget?

  “…let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them…” Deut 20:3 (KJV) On 9/11/2001 I was working as the Senior Operations Manager for a 1.2 million square foot Super-Regional Shopping Mall.  My responsibilities included managing a budget of around $8 million; other responsibilities included the [...]

Are You Entertaining Angels Unaware?

Image: farconville / FreeDigitalPhotos.net Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. Heb 13:2 (NASB) Obviously this verse is talking about instances when men have spoken and interacted with God’s angelic messengers, such as the instance when Lot interacted with the judging angels sent to [...]
