Great Lion of God

MANY years of intensive study went into this novel about one of the most passionate, intelligent, urban and dedicated Apostles of early Christianity, Saul of Tarshish, ‑or, as the Romans called him, Paul of Tarsus, the intellectual Pharisee and lawyer and theologian, and, finally, the Apostle to the Gentiles. Saul has had more influence on the Western world and Christianity than most […]

By: Erick Erickson (Diary) Louie Giglio is a Christian pastor in Atlanta. For the past two decades he has spent his time getting Christians to focus on a topic dear to me — human trafficking.  That has been his calling and focus.  It is a worthy cause.  More than 17,000 people are smuggled into the United States each year to […]

Choose To Feel

on January 12, 2013, 7:35 AM / in Religion

My heart churns within Me; My sympathy is stirred. — Hosea 11:8 The bumper sticker on the blue van caught my attention: CHOOSE TO FEEL As I considered those words, I noticed the billboards I was passing. They urged me to choose things that would keep me from feeling—alcohol to deaden emotional pain; fat-laden food to alleviate feelings of emptiness; […]

NEIGHBOR-TO-NEIGHBOR PROJECT

on January 10, 2013, 10:23 AM / in Local News, News, Religion

Once more the churches, my own church, is dappling in areas that it shouldn’t and am I not talking about charity, which is its job but politics … and the city wishes to appear as the contributor and savior of my neighborhood. What are they offering, certainly not salvation, because salvation comes when the contribution is painful and meaningful, but they wish […]

on January 7, 2013, 9:48 AM / in Opinion, Religion

Death has always come easy to me and I suspect several reasons that is true. I didn’t have this perspective in the beginning but while this all may seem strange to a great many,  as I grew I viewed life as no more than a transition period, a stepping off place; a place where we learn to be closer to […]

The Parable of Two Shepherds

on January 6, 2013, 8:39 AM / in Religion

The Good Shepherd was leading His sheep in the Way only He knows, providing for their every need, protecting them from danger, and in return expecting only that they would hear His voice and follow Him. It came to pass that another shepherd would sometimes approach the flock, usually from the back, and cause a few select sheep to go […]

Happy or Holy?

While parts of my life are VERY high tech (see, you can teach an ‘old dog’ new tricks!), there is one area that is very OLD SCHOOL. I don’t have my calendar on my phone, or in any of my three computers. My calendar hangs on the wall just to the right of my monitor showing one month at the […]

Merry Christmas

I thought this worthy of sharing… Many of us who try to educate *family* and some friends can appreciate what OldDog has to say. from http://anationbeguiled.com Unfortunately, many of my personal friends and family members are not on my web site mailing list, and remain uninformed about what has taken complete control of my life these last eight years, [and […]

“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

on December 23, 2012, 8:58 AM / in Opinion, Religion

So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.” – Acts 16:30-31 “Finding the right questions is as crucial as finding the right answers,” says devotional writer Henri Nouwen. Yet how easy it is to run ahead of God’s Spirit as we talk to unbelievers about Christ, giving pre-packaged answers before we listen to their […]

IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

By Coach Dave Daubenmire December 13, 2012 NewsWithViews.com I want to give you a fair warning. You may want to stop reading right now because at the end I am going to ask you to do something. Most folks just talk. Very few do something. This commentary is for the doers. That smell emanating from this commentary is smoke. I […]

The Cross

The Cross

on December 12, 2012, 9:56 PM / in Bedtime Stories, Religion

A young man was at the end of his rope, seeing no way out, dropped to his knees in prayer. “Lord, I can’t go on,” he said. “I have too heavy of a cross to bear.” The Lord replied, “My son, if you can’t bear its weight, just place your cross inside this room. Then, open that other door and […]

Evangelism: The Fleecing of the Flock

on December 12, 2012, 3:36 PM / in Religion

I consider myself more than fortunate to have come to the Lord under the guidance of a real old time evangelist who didn’t pass a collection plate at any of his services.  He was there to PREACH THE WORD OF GOD – to Lay Hands on those who were ready to receive healing from God.   It makes my heart sick to […]

In Memory of John Hunt

on July 31, 2005, 9:09 PM / in Religion

One of the things I miss about doing the radio show on WNWS were the people, the friends, the listeners, that we gained during the times that we were all together on both the show and outside. The strength they provided us when we were first beginning and the hope of better times. Some become very good friends and we […]

“Retronyms”

on November 22, 2017, 5:00 AM / in Religion

Do not marvel that I said to you, “You must be born again.” —John 3:7 What do regular coffee, acoustic guitars, and black-and-white television have in common? All are what journalist Frank Mankiewicz calls “retronyms”—words or phrases created because a familiar word needs to be distinguished from a term that refers to a new development or invention. Once, all coffee […]
