To Hell With The Chicken Fingers

My family and I have just returned from a two-week vacation (trip). We traveled more than 4,000 miles in 13 days and God blessed us through it all, no complaints. For you parents reading this, you know that traveling with little children is a bit difficult. Routines are disrupted, schedules are broken, rebellion increases, your […]

Fat And Happy Marriage

What qualifies me to say anything about fat and happy marriages? Well, hopefully I have one. Perhaps our marriage is not “fat and happy” maybe we are on our way there and currently in the “chunky and cheery” category. Well, my wife and I have been married for five years now, six this May, look […]

I am reminded of Paul’s exhortation to the Corinthians, “Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.” Sometimes Christians are afraid to act because they don’t know what to do. When it comes to abortion mill ministry, Christians write a check (maybe) to the pregnancy resource center, but stand and call people to repentance?! Well, […]

Here It Comes Again

So, here it comes again, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. It breaks my heart that 50,000,000 babies, images of God, sons and daughters, people, have been murdered. It breaks my heart that this holocaust is occurring, and our culture and churches are numb to it. It happens in a sterile room, out of sight, […]
