  • THE DEVIL’S BUFFET

    Luke 15:15-16 – “(15) So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs. (16) And he was longing to be fed with the pods that the pigs ate, and no one gave him anything.” Promises of greener pastures. Lured away […]

  • “NEXT STOP…WILLOUGHBY!”

    Fresh off the New Years Twilight Zone Marathon, it is only fitting I comment on “A Stop At Willoughby”. “This is Gart Williams, age thirty-eight, a man protected by a suit of armor all held together by one bolt. Just a moment ago, someone removed the bolt, and Mr. Williams’ protection fell away from him […]

  • DO I REALLY BELIEVE THIS? (PART 4)

    Jesus loves me. This I know. For the Bible tells me so. Yes. Jesus loves me. Yes. Jesus loves me. Yes. Jesus loves me. The Bible tells me so. I believe that. No, really. I really, really believe that. The Bible tells me so. John 15:9 (AMP) – “I have loved you, [just] as the […]

  • DO I REALLY BELIEVE THIS? (PART 3)

    Imagine walking around with a 50 pound backpack all day long. I mean 24/7. At first it would be cumbersome and heavy, but eventually you would start to adapt. In fact, you would start to become built up physically so that it would seem like no weight at all.   That’s what people who have […]

  • DO I REALLY BELIEVE THIS? (PART 2)

    It was a bright and glorious day when Jesus taught me to pray according to His will and His Word. Until then I had acquired a lot of religious bad habits.  It was fashionable for instance, to end every prayer with “if it’s Your will.” If? What a faith killing word if ever there was […]

  • DO I REALLY BELIEVE THIS? (PART 1)

    1 Corinthians 2:2 (AMP) – “For I resolved to know nothing (to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing, and to be conscious of nothing) among you except Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and Him crucified.”    Do we really believe that? Should we take the example of Paul in […]

  • TIME ROLLS ON

    Time rolls on. It waits for no one. Not Princes nor Presidents. Not the noted or the notorious. Not you and me. It will not pause one hour. Not one minute. Not one second. It will not even slow down just long enough for us to catch a breath. It rolls and it rolls hard. […]

  • RESOLVE TO BECOME

    Those who know me well understand that I am not a fan of making resolutions during the popular time of the year to do that. New Years has become almost a pagan festival of change in behavior. People will resolve to lose weight, stop drinking, stop smoking, be a better anything one can become better […]

  • “TO YOU THIS DAY”

    I’m not quite sure how God works it out. I have this acquired spiritual sense that God is not governed by space and time, and that His omniscience and omnipotence somehow is able to make things of the past as real and tangible in the present. I find this particularly true concerning the Incarnation, the […]

  • GHOSTS, FEARS, AND FUTURE DANGERS

    These are the things that people battle. Most are classified as “intangibles”. They are not even real, or have not manifested yet, and we are all ready expending precious energy battling them. Sleeplessness, irritability, inflexibility, nervousness, anxiety, melancholia, etc. Many times just the result of a suggestive thought or a word taken the wrong way. […]
