Transformed by His Glory

This is a study by Charles Ryrie of how the believer understands and lives in the light of God’s glory.  In the process Ryrie takes the reader through a number of biblical texts and, in his own unique style, draws his points and material from the text.  He begins with major texts of the Old […]

The Real Hate Crime

Our world is full of  contradictions.  We all see them and do them to some degree.  What was once called free love was no more than unrestrained lust.  What is called pro-choice is really a horrid restriction on another person’s chance to live.  What one person insists is his right to marry the same sex […]

Natural Disasters

A number of interesting natural and unnatural things have happened in the last few days.  We have seen an amazing solar eclipse which happens only a couple times in most people’s life time.  Some people go too far on one side making such an eclipse a biblical sign from God, and others go too far […]

America’s Testing

In his farewell address George Washington said that a nation is “a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.”1 More than two hundred years later America’s greatest animosity is to Christianity, and its greatest affection is to profligacy.

Flee Fornication

For too long pastors and other ministers have avoided speaking frankly about sexual sins.  Perhaps we’re afraid when psychologists tell us that those who do speak out, have some kind of hidden problem themselves, a subliminal obsession that rises to the surface every time one speaks on the subject.  Therefore many have remained quiet for […]

Shaken Not Stirred

This 2005 book is written by a pastor and father of two children.  This is written from a pastor’s heart who cares deeply about the growing problem of alcoholism in our country.  I would recommend this book for the layman’s first read.  It is well researched and places the historic information in language easier to […]

Apostasy, Then and Now

I think we have finally gotten over any love of Halloween in our churches.  That pagan holiday with its ghosts and goblins, witches and broomsticks, can thankfully be gone from our church calendars.  I don’t know of any Christian church that celebrated it this year.  When the origins of customs remain unknown and harmless (such […]
