The Fraternal Brotherhood

They are the words the father of any college age freshman son dreads to hear: "Dad, I joined a fraternity." Yes, I have to admit I was a bit stunned. I immediately had visions of all night parties on par with Animal House. After all, fraternities are not known for their wisdom, character or stability.... Continue Reading →

The Very Few Words of Christ

Just a cursory look at the New Testament reveals the few words Christ spoke. At least the ones we have recorded in the four writings of his life and ministry. If one combines only the words of Jesus' into one book, it would be a very thin booklet. While Christ spoke and did many more... Continue Reading →

Christ and Buddha

I have many wonderful and caring Buddhist friends as well as others from different beliefs. Many say there are no real differences between Buddha and Christ; that they are the same. While there are some striking similarities, there are some glaring and crucial differences. —Buddha taught a moral life through our own selves.. Jesus taught... Continue Reading →

While you may or may not agree with all of his theology, this posting is one that explains the problem we are facing in the American... Continue Reading →

Son of God

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16,... Continue Reading →

War of the Worlds

You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us ? But... Continue Reading →

The Biggest Bully

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7 NIV) It was the last straw. Little Johnny was not going to take another minute of it. "Big Bart" was about to discover the fury of a kid who was about to show his true grit. Bart loved to... Continue Reading →
