A Missed Opportunity, Blame It On The “Christians”

THIS WAS WRITTEN ON NOVEMBER 13, 2012 BUT WAS NOT POSTED.  WITH ANOTHER ELECTION FOR CONGRESS COMING UP THIS NOVEMBER, WE FEEL THE NEED TO POST THIS NOW FOR CONSIDERATION. The election is over and the pundits are assessing blame for why Romney lost.  I can’t say I was excited by the results.  When a […]

Tarnished Sterling

Much has been made of Donald Sterling’s recorded comments concerning African-Americans.  As the owner of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers, a team composed of over 90 per cent African-Americans, those comments were splashed all over all major newspapers and television networks even though these were statements made in a private setting.  Needless to say, a […]

Wilt Thou Also Destroy the Righteous With the Wicked?

This question was asked by Abraham of the men who came to him to tell him that God had had the course with Sodom and Gomorrah and was going to destroy the city. (Genesis 18:23)  Today, those who are pushing the homoosexual agenda have made their effort to now destroy the Christian position of marriage […]

Help the Poor! Who, Me?

When only 2% of the church attendees tithe, is it any wonder that the government takes care of the poor?  God’s only requirement of government as to the poor was that they guard the poor from those who would take advantage of them (Proverbs 30:14) and make sure they get fair treatment from the courts […]

THE ISHMAEL CHURCH

The phrase “Ishmael Church” is somewhat strange in today’s vocabulary. We think of Ishmael in the Islamic religion, however, God has dealt with me to view this in an entirely different way. He took me back to Abraham, so I could see exactly what the ‘Ishmael Church’ is about. In Genesis 12:1-3, Abraham is given […]

Our Duty to God pt 2

5. We have a duty to have communion with God. We are to speak with him and listen to him. We are to have conversation with him just like we would have with our earthly father. “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, […]

Our Duty to God

What is our duty to God? To go to church every time the doors are open; to lead people to the Lord and help them secure their salvation; to read the Bible every day; to pray for an hour every day; to attend Bible school; to work for a church or ministry; to go to […]

How Then Should We Live?

“Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.” Galatians 5:26. Paul is reminding us that we should not be singing ‘How Great I Art’ as such is not the sign of one who is a follower of Christ. The Message Bible sets this passage out this way, “That means […]

The Three Part Marriage

We understand that we are made up of three parts, spirit, soul and body. We are a physical person, a mental person and a spiritual person—all in one. In order to operate at maximum efficiency, we must have all parts on the same page. How many times have we tried to focus on a fast […]
