Christianity is Good for You!

[182 words] It turns out that Christianity is good for you, and good for your kids. Aren’t I Captain Obvious? Well, I suppose if you have been listening too much to certain atheists it might not be obvious. Richard Dawkins has claimed teaching children to accept their parent’s religion is child abuse, and suggests it’s even more damaging than sexual abuse. Interesting attention-grabbing statement—and completely wrong. If you look at Christian families with unbiased eyes it is to see how beneficial practicing Christian faith can be. If you need further proof, consider a 2018 Harvard Study. Researchers kept track of...

Clean Air

[434 words] There’s a new heat pump on the south end of the “preacher’s home.” I was there when the repair guys were pulling out the old one. The compressor died. It was no big surprise as all mechanical things fail, wear out, or break, sooner or later. However, there was an unexpected bit of information waiting to be discovered. As the old unit was removed and the “innards” exposed to the light of day, the inside coil was about 80% blocked to airflow. There’s an air filter to make sure that only “clean” air can get into the system,...

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...

How the Romans Won the War and Lost the Peace

[294 words] William Barclay, in his commentary on Thessalonians, states that during the period of the Roman Republic, the Romans had not a single divorce for a 520-year period. However, as they moved away from the Republic into more of a socialistic empire, things began to change. Although they had previously conquered the Greeks militarily, the Greeks “Grecianized” the Romans in terms of morality. The fornication, homosexuality, and related sins of Corinth are an indication of this Grecianization in the first century. Similarly, the American Republic has also moved further and further away from personal responsibility toward more collectivism—arrangements whereby...

Elements of a Depraved Culture

[500 words] No God. People have many gods, but not God. They have the god of pleasure. They worship the god of money. Their “god is their belly” (Phil. 3:19). Though the creation plainly declares God (Psa. 19:1), they still refuse to acknowledge Him. No Fear. When men turn to themselves, they become presumptuous, self-willed, and “are not afraid to speak evil of dignities” (2 Pet. 2:10). “There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Rom. 3:18), and they are capable of just about anything. No Respect. Because they have no fear of God, they have no regard for...

Evil Exists

[411 words] “I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, and that you cannot tolerate evil men” (Revelation 2:2). Modern philosophy suggests that there is something good in everyone. Thoroughly “bad” or “evil” persons are not even considered to exist. Everyone who commits particularly heinous deeds do so because they are innocent products of their environment. The young man who disobeys the police and is shot suffers not because of any wrong doing on his part but because of racism. The woman who kills her children is mentally imbalanced. The drunk driver who strays into an oncoming car is...

Rise and Shine!

[394 words] I was conscious enough at 6 a.m. Monday through Friday to hear my dad step inside our doorway and turn on the light. My dad would say, “Rise and shine, my sons!” We got up to our daily chores of cooking breakfast, making coffee, fixing mom and dad’s lunch pails and their thermoses, and sitting at the table half asleep to eat breakfast together. Then at 6:30 they left to drive to their jobs at Beech Aircraft in Wichita. I never once thought about how they liked the early morning and the daily commute. My parents worked hard,...
