Did Bugs Bunny Corrupt the Scriptures?

[366 words] If I called you a Nimrod, how would you feel? If you are like most people you would probably feel insulted. The popular definition for a nimrod is an inept person, an oaf, a moron, an ignoramus. The original name Nimrod really meant to be a skillful mighty hunter. Its origin is found in Genesis 10:8-9:  “Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” How did the mighty hunter become an inept oaf?...

Dig a Hole, Fill It Up

[198 words] A man was enjoying a relaxing day in the city park when he noticed two workers. One of the workers was furiously digging a hole. The other worker would come along after the first had finished and just as furiously fill it back in. The man stared in disbelief wondering what was going on. After several moments, curiosity got the better of him and he walked up to the workers and asked why they doing something so worthless. “Worthless?” the worker quipped, “If anybody on this crew is worthless, it is the guy who plants the trees, he...

The ABC’s of Bible Class

[193 words] Attendance: No one can learn anything from Bible class if they are not there. Constant attendance will help reinforce the lessons being repeated each week. Attendance not only means being there every time but also on time. Not a minute of instruction time should be missed if you want the child to receive the full effect of Bible class.  Bible: No student is complete in Bible class without a Bible. From the moment a child can read they should have their own Bible that they can study from. Select a translation that they can understand, but don’t sacrifice...

Of Facts and Feelings

[436 words] The movie and television industries exist to promote entertainment fantasy. One of the latest fads is the “reality” show. The only problem is that there is almost nothing even remotely “real” about these shows. So what?! Selling fantasy is about creating feelings not delivering facts. Except for a few documentaries and such, the purpose of television programming in general is to provoke emotions. It is sometimes difficult in matters of religion to balance the dual presence of both facts and emotions. Some have argued that religion is exclusively about facts and there is no place for feelings. Not...

The ‘If-Then’s’ of the Prophets

[396 words] Working your way through the major or minor prophets, where God is rebuking His people, it can become tedious to read. However, as one reads along, a reader will invariably come across an “if-then” statement. A good Bible student will note and highlight these if-then statements because they indicate application of God’s word to the people to whom they are being spoken. These if-then statements are landmarks NOT to be ignored. They can and will remind us of:  God’s infinite goodness. Like a parent not wanting their child to make a choice that would lead to difficulty, God...

The Kid Who Changed The World

[286 words] The book The Kid Who Changed The World by Andy Andrews is based on the Butterfly Effect. The idea is that every time something happens, something else happens. When a butterfly flaps its wings, it moves tiny pieces of air, which then moves other tiny pieces of air. Essentially, every little thing you do, has some type of impact on the world around you. What you did yesterday, today, and what you will do tomorrow matters. Norman Borlaug is the kid who changed the world, because he decided as a child, growing up on a farm, that all...

Desensitized by Saturation

[343 words] The practice of desensitization by saturation is very common one. Just take a moment and look back in your life and compare your past to what is allowed and permitted in our culture today. I understand that there is nothing new under the sun (Ecc. 1:9) and the sin we deal with today is the same as the sin we have dealt with in the past. But there is an all-out effort to desensitize our minds in the areas of morality. Television, movies, music, and the internet; are all well into the “saturation” mode. The homosexual agenda is...

The Cracked Pot

[262 words] An elderly woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole that she carried across her neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the...

Look at the Things We CAN Do!

[138 words] We sometimes spend too much wasted time concerned with what we are unable to do, instead of looking at the things we CAN do. In at least two separate incidents, Jesus taught the importance of using what we have. He pointed out to the apostles how much “more” the poor widow with two coins gave in comparison with those who were giving of their surplus (Luke 21:1-4). The second incident occurred when a woman “anointed” Jesus’ head with an alabaster vial of expensive perfume, “doing a good deed to Me [Christ]”. This act was to be spoken in...

Chariots of Iron

[303 words] The people of Joseph said, “The hill country is not enough for us. Yet all the Canaanites who dwell in the plain have chariots of iron, both those in Beth-shean and its villages and those in the Valley of Jezreel” (Joshua 17:16). When the land of Canaan was being divided, the descendants of Joseph, the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, were given land but were not satisfied. They felt they were too numerous and needed more land. The problem was that they saw the people living in the towns on the plains as too powerful for them to...

What Do You See?

[236 words] “For whoever lacks these qualities (faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, steadfastness, godliness, brotherly affection, and love) is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins” (2 Peter 1:9). Too many of us do not see what we need to see (cf. Jer. 5:21). While we might be able to see today, we do not see tomorrow. We do not see what is coming in judgment and eternity. Because of this we do not plan. We do not try to change. We do not seek to get stronger, etc. While we might...

What We Can Learn from the Recent University Scandal

[238 words] On March 12, 2019, federal prosecutors disclosed a conspiracy to influence admissions decisions at several American research universities. A number of parents of college applicants are accused of paying large sums to misrepresent student test scores and bribe college officials to get their children into top tier universities. Accused of this crime are two well-known actresses, a football star, several top executives of well-known corporations, a book author, and other rich people. My question is: Even though over 50 of the rich and famous are be-ing accused of this crime, why has most of the focus been on...

What Should We Do About Sin?

[485 words] If you, as a Christian, know for a fact that your brother or sister is living in sin, what are you to do? Depending on the sin, you might say. If it is a private matter, Matthew 18:15 and following give the prescription for the matter. If the brother or sister refuse to listen, there are potentially drastic steps to be taken. Galatians 6:1-2 tells us to go and bear up a brother who is in trespass. It tells us to do it gently or meekly. We are after his/her soul, not to just beat on him or...

Negativity

[125 words] Why is it that some people project a positive attitude, while others are so negative? Some people are so unhappy that they no longer have that beautiful Christian spirit. They walk under a cloud of despair, and fail to see the good in others. I tend to believe that even though we are all sinners, there is a radiance of kindness in every person. I would hope that most individuals want to go to heaven. They are just blinded on how to get there. That is where we come in! Yet, in order to save these individuals we...

Expressions and Impressions

[449 words] Are you approachable? It is likely each of us can say, “Yes, I am approachable. Why do you ask?” It was not long ago that I heard a sister say to the preacher, “You’re approachable.” This is an interesting remark. Is the case that some in the congregation, perhaps Bible class teachers, other saints, elders are not? Perhaps. On the other hand, maybe all that was meant is the preacher is approachable and easy to talk to. Are you judgmental? Some time back, a good way in fact, I heard a person say of an elder, “He is...

Look the Right Directions For the Right Reasons

[381 words] During a time of David’s kingship, Absalom, his son, plotted a revolt against the throne. In a short time, Absalom gathered quite a force, and David decided to flee Jerusalem. Absalom and his army hotly pursued him. No doubt this was a distressing time for David. There are surely times in which we can relate – when we feel the world is closing in on us. During those times, we need to remember to look the right directions and for the right reasons. We can see what David did from his words in Psalm 3 (which is titled:...

Hard Work Pays Off

[79 words] Robert Griffin III, quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, once said, “Hard work pays off. Hard work beats talent any day, but if you’re talented and work hard, it’s hard to be beat.” How true this is in all of life, but certainly in the work of the church. How many people refuse to work in evangelism because they are not “talented” in that area? If you want to fulfill the Great Commission, think “hard work” first, and “talent” second.

Methods Change, the Need Remains

[80 words] On April 3, 1860, the Pony Express service began as the first rider departed St. Joseph, Missouri. For $5 an ounce, letters were delivered on horseback 2,000 miles to California within ten days. The service ended less than two years later upon the completion of the overland telegraph, which brought quicker and more efficient communication. Though methods change, the need for communication remains. For Christians, Jesus’ command to “go” is still in effect. What method of communication are you using? BulletinDigest.com...
