Peace Through Thankfulness

Thankfulness seems to be a lost art today. Warren Wiersby illustrated this problem in his commentary on Colossians. He told about a ministerial student in Evanston, Illinois, who was part of a life-saving squad. In 1860, a ship went aground on the shore of Lake Michigan near Evanston, and Edward Spencer waded again and again…

History Repeats Itself

If we do not pay attention history, because of human nature, history will repeat itself over and over again. There have been moves to erase the disgusting tragedies that have happened throughout history, yes it is appalling I agree. But if we do not know or study how it happened why it happened or what…

Stop the Spin

Everything seems so out of control right now. It’s like we are all caught in an out-of-control spin. It is time to put your foot down and focus on the only way out.   There were 128 runners in the field for the cross-country race at the 1993 NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships. As they set…

The Light in the Dark (part 4)

The Walk This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don’t tell the truth.  But if we walk in the light,…

Faith Like its Never Been Told

By The Hand

There seems to be something going on everywhere we turn. The division that has become an expected normal. The violence that appears to have gasoline being pored on it, always keeping it going.

Denominations

How do you feel about the division that has been created within the world, school, politics? What about religion, church, and denominations? I am going to focus on denominations.

What is the Bible Part 6, Only the New Testament

Once, when a stubborn disputer seemed unconvinced, Lincoln said, “Well, let’s see how many legs has a cow?” “Four, of course,” came the reply disgustedly. “That’s right,” agreed Lincoln. “Now suppose you call the cow’s tail a leg; how many legs would the cow have?” “Why, five, of course,” was the confident reply. “Now, that’s…
