  • Why Christians Need to Know History

    Recently, my daughter showed me a Huffington Post article reviewing the book Noah, Man of Resolve. It is a fictional story based on events in the Bible and written from a creationist worldview. I haven’t read the book, and I hope people understand it is a beyond-the-Bible representation of Noah, but it does make the effort to show a realistic setting. The article took the liberty of correcting the viewpoint with evolutionary “real” science, and comments were vicious in their criticism of creatio…

  • The Good in Good Friday

    Today is Good Friday in the United States. Good Friday is a day that Christians around the world acknowledge with a deep sense of gratitude. It is the day that Jesus, the Son of God, the Messiah and Son of Man, died a brutal death for anyone willing to believe in Him. It is our choice to accept His work for us. It is truly a gift offered by the One Who is Love. His life and death is the way to receive mercy, peace and abundant life. It is hard for those who to choose not to believe the eviden…

  • When You Wish You Had an Ox

    Driving down a country road, I came upon a succession of white farmhouses, crisp red barns and rolling pastures where beef cattle were grazing: black and red angus, belted Galloways and a few Charolais. It was a scene that reminded me of my childhood and people dear to me. To the descendants of Gershon and Merari, the sight of numerous oxen and carts held a different meaning. These people were part of the tribe of Levi. The Israelites at this time in their history had no permanent temple. They…

  • Do You Have the Courage to Pursue Your Dream?

    Have you ever had a goal, a dream, that somehow faded into the background of your story? Life with its baggage and responsibilities elbowed its way to the center, eating up your time and opportunities. Choices write our stories. Perhaps your choices, good and bad, have led you away from pursuing your dream. Perhaps you think they’ve ended it. Moses was trained as a leader. As the adopted son of the Pharaoh’s daughter, he was educated as a prince in the royal Egyptian court. At forty, he had an…

  • Review: Alive in the Spirit by A.W. Tozer

    Alive in the Spirit by A.W. Tozer is perhaps the most personal collection of Tozer’s teachings. This material has never been published before. It is a book directed to the individual and the indwelling/baptism of the Holy Spirit. The book assumes that the reader is already a born again Christian, and understandably so as the material is derived from sermons that focus on the work of the Holy Spirit after conversion. If you are not familiar with the Christian faith, you may want to read Tozer’s T…

  • Socialism's Search for God

    In Luke 12:31-32, Jesus tells us to “...seek the kingdom” and then encourages us further by saying, “Do not be afraid...your Father [is] pleased to give you the kingdom.” (NIV) But what is the Kingdom? It is a place of total reliance on God. Jesus said the Kingdom is at hand and set out to demonstrate how it worked. He taught, “Have faith in God,” (Mark 11:22 is one example) for health, for peace, for prosperity and for success. We are to ask, Jesus taught, because we will receive. The …

  • Always Prepared?

    I was talking to my son about #cutting wood. He asked me how it was going. I said, “Well, I make some coffee and pour myself a cup and sit in my chair and pray that I don’t cut my leg off. Then I pour myself another cup. I get the chainsaw operator’s manual out and read it over…again. Then I pour another cup. Finally I went and cut wood.” He laughed. But I was serious. Everything has become a process for me. Even cutting logs my boys have prepared for me, and even when they have equipped me …
