Cruising With Jesus

Published January 19, 2012

When the Costa Concordia ran aground and sank in the Mediterranean Sea, I was distressed by the need to pray for all those poor souls trapped below deck and injured in the evacuation. It must have been a harrowing experience. Then when I heard that the captain “jumped ship,” so to speak, I was even more distressed. So much for the old adage “The captain always goes down with his ship.” It caused me to reflect that Jesus, our captain, would never jump ship. It is comforting to know that He said, “I will never desert you, nor will I […]

Being Overcomers

Published October 28, 2011

We’ve been spending time considering what it means to be an overcomer. Jesus tells us to be overcomers. We are  to join Him in “overcoming the world” (John 16.33). He tells us to “take courage.” Yes, it takes courage to be an overcomer. It also takes faith. The beloved disciple John tells us in his first letter that “faith is the victory that overcomes the world” (1 Jn. 5.4,5). It seems so simple, yet, why is it so hard? Our natural inclination is to succumb to the circumstances around us because they’re in our faces. They get hold of our […]

On Writing Books and Pondering Aliens

Published September 23, 2011

What is it about man and his never-ending thirst for knowledge? Why are we so curious about the world around us? For some people this translates into research and study; in addition, for me, it spurs an intense desire to write about curious issues in a way that makes the reader think. I’ve been writing books since 1980, but I’ve been writing poems, essays, articles and various other things, like letters to the editor, since I was in college. It’s kind of a passion with me, just like golfing is a passion with some other guys. Since I’ve read a […]

The Truth

Published September 2, 2011

It’s been a long standing mark of moral character in American culture to tell the truth. So ingrained is this standard that our courts of law require a witness to take an oath: “Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?” But something has happened. Truth telling, although maintained as a standard, is out of favor right now. The American public has become cynical about the truth, thinking of all the lying politicians and worse, a court system where the truth is not honored. Now, we watch with horror […]

The Real Debt

Published August 5, 2011

Are you happy that Congress pulled off a last minute spending/debt/budget bill so that our country did not have to default? Well, yes, of course. Who in his right mind would want us to default. Me for one. Surprised? The bill that was passed changes nothing. The real problem was not addressed, as usual, and as much as we’d like to think that things are now okay…they aren’t. A default and a credit rating downgrade might have forced Congress to make the hard decisions. You see, the real debt is not owed to foreign investors, or to our various government […]

Good News Club is Done for the Year

Published May 20, 2011

We had a great time at the Good News Club as we closed out the school year Tuesday, May 16th. There were thirteen children present with another fifteen parents, relatives, and two of our Club trainers. Certificates and “gospel” bracelets were handed out, and the Gideons presented each of the children with their own Bibles. We also enjoyed some sweet treats, which the kids loved! We will start the Good News Club for children at Linden Elementary once again in the fall, after school starts. Please join us if you can to help teach our community children about the gospel […]

The Church Today

Published May 13, 2011

In the last year I’ve read several contemporary books on the church. They have not been doctrinal, nor for that matter, definitive. No. Each one has said that the American church is in trouble, and if it doesn’t “get a grip” it will go extinct. “How so?” you may ask. Well, for one thing,  Americans don’t see the local church as essential anymore. That means that going to church is only one of many preferences, kind of like electing to eat out or to go on a Saturday picnic. Part of the reason for this disinterest in the church is […]

Happy New Year 2011

Published January 14, 2011

The salutation “Happy New Year!” is much needed this time around. After last year with its out-of-the-ordinary troubles, we’d all like to experience something more normal, predictable and pleasant this time. Will that happen? I honestly don’t know, but I do know from experience that bad things will happen. Our prayer should be to handle these things in faith. Good or bad, faith is the victory (1 Jn. 5.4). It is well worth remembering how God has blessed us in the past as we press on into an uncertain future. I mean everything from water to drink, and food to […]

COS – Church on Sunday

Published June 15, 2010

We’ve been traveling in Oklahoma and Texas. Wherever we go I’m interested in other churches and who they are and what they’re doing. Ran across one in Grove, OK, on Grand Lake that mystifies me. We drove by it and noticed the sign: COS. That’s what the sign in front of this nice looking, large building, with a big parking lot said: COS. I didn’t get it. It was obviously a church, but the bold declaration across the top of the sign was just three letters in caps. My wife called my attention to the line below, which I thought […]

Prepare for the New Year 2010

Published December 9, 2009

For some time now I’ve been warning our people at NHCF about the coming trouble and encouraging them to “get prepared.” Primary to all preparation is being right with God. Then prayer follows. We can claim “the law of faith” (1 John 5.4). And, “my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Phil.4.19). But, I suspect that He’ll inspire you to do some personal work and preparation in the process. My concern in this writing is to focus on 2010 and get a view for what could happen. In looking and understanding […]
