As The Cloud Of Witnesses Grows, So Should Our Boldness

Ravi Zacharias died today. Cancer depleted his body. His last breath was breathed. No doubt tears will be shed. But that is not the end of his story! If you are a believer, then you believe the words of Jesus and what the Bible says, that the dead will “wake up and shout for joy”Continue reading “As The Cloud Of Witnesses Grows, So Should Our Boldness”

Revival: All The Ingredients Are There

As I read historical accounts from my grandparents and great grandparents generation, I am struck by the rapidity of how many of them had to grow up. With world wars and great depressions, there was little to no choice in the matter. They had to grow up fast. They were forced to take on responsibilitiesContinue reading “Revival: All The Ingredients Are There”

Kenneth Copeland, Tiger King, and Stoners: What Is People Who Should Not Be Given A Platform

Alright I know, that title was probably not very professional. But like many of you out there, I have had the “pleasure” of reading and seeing many things on social media and TV that equally dumbfound and irritate me. I’m reminded of the moderator’s response to Billy Madison when Billy had just finished giving hisContinue reading “Kenneth Copeland, Tiger King, and Stoners: What Is People Who Should Not Be Given A Platform”

Faith or Recklessness– Should We Meet As A Church?

As a teen growing up, I did an unhealthy and incalculable amount of stupid things. I used to have my friends shoot me with my bb gun. “I can take it!” I would jump from my roof onto the trampoline and then over the fence into the front yard. Why not? Then other days IContinue reading “Faith or Recklessness– Should We Meet As A Church?”

When I was seventeen, I remember standing before my pastor telling him that I felt better. I had just repeated a prayer about salvation. I remember the feeling right after praying that. I felt like I was going to hell. I still remember today many years later. It was the most terrible feeling I hadContinue reading “Responding To Someone Who Feels Doomed To Hell?”

One Small Doubt For Man…One Giant Leap For…?

When I was a kid I watched a lot of wrestling with my dad. “Is this real Dad?” “Of course it is.” “Wait a minute. You also said that you walked to school barefoot, in the snow, uphill both ways. And I’m starting to question that.” So it’s safe to say that I developed aContinue reading “One Small Doubt For Man…One Giant Leap For…?”

I Have To Go… vs. I Have To Go Around…

I’m originally from Oklahoma. Now don’t stop reading there, just because you’re a die hard Texas fan! I love college football. And one of the greatest rivalries in college football is the Oklahoma/Texas Red River Rivalry. It turns neighbors against each other. Co-workers have cubicle battles. Even Grandmas withhold cookies from their grandkids who standContinue reading “I Have To Go… vs. I Have To Go Around…”
