The Church of Me

  [278 words] Sometimes people will ask me about my church. They assume since I am a minister that somehow I have some ownership or say over it. We do that too. We remark ‘at my church’ or ‘come to my church.’ It might just be a slip of the tongue but we need to work to correct it. Because it is not ‘our’ church, and that is a very good thing! The church of me wouldn’t be a good one. Oh, it might be likable enough, it could be entertaining, and it might have the community’s approval. The church...

How to Lose Your Kingdom

  [399 words] “So Saul died for his unfaithfulness which he had committed against the Lord, because he did not keep the word of the Lord, and also because he consulted a medium for guidance. But he did not inquire of the Lord; therefore He killed him, and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse” (1 Chronicles 10:13). Saul lost his physical life and his physical kingdom because of his unfaithfulness, not keeping the word of God and for seeking guidance from mankind (a witch/medium) instead of God Himself. He also lost his spiritual life and spiritual...

You Are Being Stalked!

  [358 words] There have been a few times when I have been followed, stalked if you will, by animals. Once by a cat that wanted to play, once by a skunk on the UAM campus (who didn’t want to play), and once by a large dog that I am sure was trying to hamstring me. We have heard stories of animals hunting men as prey, even tigers taking children from villages, or a bear following a hunter. Most of us probably won’t have to face threats like these, but we are being stalked every day by something far scarier...

Dead and Alive

  [287 words] Romanian Constantin Reliu strongly disputes the fact that he’s officially dead. In 1982, Reliu left Romania for Turkey in search of work, and after many years of hearing no news from her husband, his wife got an official death certificate for him. Earlier this year, Turkish authorities found Constantin and deported him. After returning to Romania, he found out that he was, in fact, officially dead. Mr. Reliu was quoted in a local news report as saying, “I’m officially dead, although I’m alive” (The Associated Press, March 16, 2018). The Christian should be able to claim the...

A Strange Thing Happened at the Funeral

  [305 words] Jesus once came across a funeral procession and did something strange. He walked up to the boy’s grieving mother and said: “don’t cry.” That poor lady might have said: “Why not weep? It is time. I have lost my only son.” But Jesus reached out and touched the open coffin. This was a strange thing for a Jew to do. You see, when a Jew came in contact with the dead, it made him unclean for several days. But this didn’t stop Jesus. He touched that open coffin and said: “Young man, I tell you, get up!”...

Our Need of Encouragement

  [422 words] We are at a time in world history where we are more “connected” than ever before (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.). Due to the advances of technology, we are able to do things that previous generations could not even imagine. Ironically, our ability to connect digitally has not solved our pressing problems such as isolation and loneliness. Sadly, such seems to have actually exacerbated the problem. The world seems more lonely than ever. Two examples of how desperate our world is for encouragement, fellowship, and belonging: First, in the United Kingdom, they recently created a new governmental position....

A Few Gray Hairs

  [565 words] “Gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not” (Hos. 7:9). “I see some gray hair!” We all hear these Words eventually. The hoary head is one of creation’s Way of reminding us that our lives are like a flower. They bloom and fade quickly. Hosea did not bring up the subject of our hair turning gray just to teach us that it is a sign of aging. As he does so often in this book, he uses a simple fact of nature to illustrate a spiritual truth. Gray hair is a sign of...

A Lesson on Morals from a Corn Field

  [293 words] An ambitious farmer, unhappy about the yield of his crops, heard of a highly recommended new seed corn. He bought some and produced a crop that was so abundant his astonished neighbors asked him to sell them a portion of the new seed. But the farmer, afraid that he would lose a profitable competitive advantage, refused. The second year the new seed did not produce as good a crop, and when the third-year crop was still worse it dawned upon the farmer that his prize corn was being pollinated by the inferior grade of corn from his...

Demonstrate That He Doesn’t Belong

  [318 words] The student came into my office yesterday with a surprise. “Excuse me, but there’s a snake in the hallway.” “What?” I asked. “Yeah! A snake, right outside your office door!” I opened the door, and sure enough, there was the foot-long garter snake, motionless in the middle of the hallway floor a full 50 feet from the front door. I deftly picked it up (the student said, “Eeewww!”) and took it outside, releasing it in our flower bed with the Vulcan gesture and farewell greeting, “Live long and prosper!” Returning to my office, I began to meditate...

Did You Know?

  [227 words] He was quite famous, a celebrity in Israel. The people flocked to see him, and because of him, many people believed. But the chief priests wanted him dead. Surely you know who we’re talking about, right?  Well, let me give you one last clue: a week before the cross, even Jesus came to see him! The man is Lazarus. In John 12:9-11, the Bible says that the Jews came not only to see Jesus, but to see Lazarus.  His resurrection from the dead was so impressive to them that many of them believed in Jesus as a...

On the Lighter Side (March 2018)

  [233 words] ON THE LIGHTER SIDE Spring Fever Four high school boys afflicted with spring fever skipped morning classes. After lunch they reported to the teacher that they had a flat tire. Much to their relief she smiled and said, “Well, you missed a test today so take seats apart from one another and take out a piece of paper.” Still smiling, she waited for them to sit down.

Another Act of Pure Evil

[357 words] The tragedy in the Floridian public school saddens the nation.  As we look on as Christians, we know the root of this evil act and that is Satan. Sin came into this world through his trickery and Adam and Eve’s disobedience to God. Since then, horrible disease, evil acts, death, etc., entered the world.  Blaming guns or bombs or other inanimate objects will not move us one inch towards a true solution. Until this nation decides to turn back to God, this type of behavior will only get worse.  We are living in a modern-day version of Judges that we...

School Shootings: Junk In, Junk Out

[219 words] [EDITOR’S NOTE: New Related Article Here.] You can’t listen to the radio without hearing pornographic lyrics talking about things that should not even be named among Christians (Eph 5:3). Our kids are enthralled by singers who normalize wickedness. Look at the video games that hold the top selling and most players. Most all of them feature mass killing, violence, gutter themes. Our kids spend hours living in the fantasy world every day. Is it any wonder that kids are killing kids with no remorse? Is it any wonder that sexual violence and misconduct is forefront in our society? ...
