Rise of the Ezekiel 38 alliance of nations

Anyone who has followed my blog or FaceBook posts for any period of time know of my great interest in Biblical prophesy. To understand any ancient literary work, it takes a lot of hard work, time and research. For each author wrote of peoples they lived among or learned about from others more-traveled than themselves.… Continue reading Rise of the Ezekiel 38 alliance of nations

Another’s Shoes

In one of my favorite parables, Jesus contrasts the humility of a corrupt tax collector who pleaded for mercy before God, with that of a self-righteousness religious leader who was so obsessed with his own virtue that he failed to recognize his own need for repentance. (Luke 18:9-14)  I have never had trouble seeing the… Continue reading Another’s Shoes

You can’t handle the Truth

This past Saturday I attended a luncheon where a young friend spoke. His message began with a reference to a Jack Nicholson line from the 1992 movie A Few Good Men. In response to the defense lawyer’s demand “I want the truth!” USMC Colonel Jessup shouts. “You can’t handle the truth!” Nearly twenty-nine centuries have… Continue reading You can’t handle the Truth

Hate is a Heart Thing

 Our society seems obsessed with hate and tries to legislate it away, with laws against hate speech, hate crimes, you name it.

This is true of the intensely spiritual person – but it’s also true of the one who doesn’t acknowledge any form of supernatural realm. Every person who has ever come to me for counsel has exposed that, at the root of their… Continue reading Your Life Matters

It’s never too late to be Holy

In this so-called “age of tolerance” it’s amazing that “holy” and “pure” are two of the most vilified words in the English language. It doesn’t seem to matter whether it’s a well-intentioned teenager or an all-pro quarterback and his celebrity fiancé who make a commitment to a lifetime of purity including sexual abstinence until they… Continue reading It’s never too late to be Holy

Abrasive or Persuasive – do you want your words and actions to be effective or not?

  Almost from the date of their authoring over 2 Millennia ago, most of the Old and New Testament books of the Bible have been under attack. Governments have feared their power and influence and individuals have been offended by their intrusion into behavioral choices. Yet in spite of the vicious attacks and wholesale attempts to… Continue reading Abrasive or Persuasive – do you want your words and actions to be effective or not?
