Julius Caesar was right. “Language is a powerful weapon … [that] can be used to manipulate others.” Pro-abortionists use language to manipulate ignorant people into thinking that abortion is healthcare and a constitutional right when it is neither. Read More ...
When our ultimate aim is to bring glory to God, we gauge success in terms of faithfulness to God and his word. Success is not a matter of facilities or numbers of people in the pews or budget. Faithfulness is success. Read More ...

Barbarians at the Gate

January 10, 2021
What it all boils down to is the choice between Christ and chaos. People will tolerate chaos only temporarily. Eventually, society will submit to a tyrant who will promise safety and peace. Totalitarianism is the end result of a secular worldview. It’s only when we choose Christ that we have freedom. As John Adams said, our constitution is fit only for a religious and moral people; it is wholly inadequate for any other. Read More ...

The Humiliation of Christ

December 20, 2020
The Poverty Carol reminds us that Jesus welcomes humble, broken people. He was born in very humble surroundings to poor parents. His first days were spent in a feeding trough most likely surrounded by farmyard animals. The Bible assures us that Jesus sympathizes with us in our weaknesses. He understands the human condition. He’s well aware that we are broken, sinful people. When we come to him humbly and repentantly, he will welcome us warmly. Read More ...
At Christmastime, we celebrate Jesus’ birth, and rightly so. We should recognize that Jesus’ birth was the culmination of a long line of people and events that had to unfold in a certain way. In part, it’s these genealogical lists that give us confidence that Jesus is whom he claimed to be—not only the son of Mary and the adopted son of Joseph, but the son of David, the son of Abraham and, most significantly, the eternal Son of God.

We can face our trials and tribulations with faith or with a lack of faith. We can allow the trials to weaken us, or we can persevere faithfully through the trial. And prayer is often the key to our response. We should face our trials with prayer and faith. Read More ...
We should not be seeking high positions of authority for ourselves. If we have positions of authority, we should not be tyrants or dictators. Christian leaders must serve others like Jesus did, with humility and compassion. Read More ...
I wonder what George Washington would think of our country today? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we still had national leaders like him? What would it be like to have national leaders who encourage our people to recognize God’s providence, to obey God’s will, to be thankful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor? Perhaps we still have a few elected leaders who would agree with Washington, but not many. It seems that we have fewer and fewer leaders or citizens who care about such things. Many of our so-called leaders today urge us to reject biblical values and to deny the providence of God. What a shame. Read More ...
Jesus’ death was not due simply to human conspiracies. Our enemy, the devil, the accuser of the brethren, was deeply involved in the plot to kill Jesus. Even so, it was not Satan that put Jesus on the cross, nor was it Judas or even Pilate. Jesus went to his death willingly, as a voluntary sacrifice for our sins. Read More ...
In times of upset and upheaval, we have a reliable, unchanging foundation—the Word of God. The words of Jesus are more reliable than anything else in this shifting, chaotic world. Read More ...
