BAPTIZE OR BURN

We were discussing the subject of what might be acceptable or unacceptable at this point in history, as it relates to evangelism.  It was always debatable; but since our society has acquired “ better education” than our parents, the “you can’t tell me”, or “get with it and get up to date” has turned ourContinue reading “BAPTIZE OR BURN”

AN INTERESTING GENEALOGY

Our daughter, Cathy, recently acquired an interest in the family genealogy.  I know little about my family background, but when she started asking questions, I realized I knew less than I thought. For instance, in the past it is obvious that folks were quick to name the new child out of the family history ofContinue reading “AN INTERESTING GENEALOGY”

JESUS IS COMING AGAIN

Some years ago, W.E. Blackstone, in his book “Jesus Is Coming” wrote… “WATCH therefore; for we know not what hour your Lord doth come.” -Matthew 24:42 “WATCH therefore; for ye know neither the day nor the hour.” -Matthew 25:13 “Take ye heed, WATCH and pray; for ye know not when the time is.” “WATCH yeContinue reading “JESUS IS COMING AGAIN”

A LOWLY NAZARENE

In fact, they may lose their “cool” in an effort to destroy any allegiance that I might possess in acknowledging Christ as my Lord and Savior.  They wonder why I might show allegiance to a “made up story” about an illegitimate child who is purportedly God in flesh.  Of course they address it as aContinue reading “A LOWLY NAZARENE”

THE HIGHEST POINT IN HEBREWS

Playing soccer was enjoyable, but I have to admit that I was not the first guy picked on the team.  With that much out of the way we will move on. The Olympics are not my priority to view.  While I admire the accomplishments of the athletes, and wonder in my mind how in theContinue reading “THE HIGHEST POINT IN HEBREWS”

SEPARATING EARTHLY AND HEAVENLY

We are all faced with the realization, as we wake each morning, I have all of these things to get accomplished.  They could be the simplest of challenges, and they could be monumental in our thinking.  The tug of war begins.  What is first on my agenda and what can wait? As a believer, IContinue reading “SEPARATING EARTHLY AND HEAVENLY”

THE FRINGE OF HIS CLOAK

After I visited the Holy Land, I was more than convinced how some use the items for profit, for support of their fantasies, for notoriety, the list is endless.  I fully expect them to find sufficient pieces of wood from the cross to build another Noah’s ark. The thought that has lingered in my mindContinue reading “THE FRINGE OF HIS CLOAK”

ON DEALING WITH REJECTION

With their bickering, the average individual found himself in a quandary about what he really believed.  This loaned itself to the crowds that went to listen to Jesus.  What He declared made sense and coincided with the average man’s interpretation of the Scriptures that existed in that day. His, Jesus’, initial presentation was specifically toContinue reading “ON DEALING WITH REJECTION”

THE ENGRAVERS HAMMER

Because “Pa” was not in the best of health, it meant we mowed his grass, along with the other necessities that became our routine.  It was often my duty to shave him on Sunday morning, early, so he could look his best as he went to church.  I look back today on the privilege thatContinue reading “THE ENGRAVERS HAMMER”
