It remains today on the wall of the church and reads, "In the year 1653, when all things sacred were throughout the nation destroyed or profaned, this church was built to the glory of God by Sir Robert Shirley whose singul...

Doing The Best of Things in the Worst of Times! Part 2

In a previous post I identified what I believe to be the "best of things" as consisting of four basic axioms that when pursued by us Christians will always result in our doing the best of things in spite of the times or the trends we find ourselves living in.

Saxifrage Saints!

Matthew 13:31-33, "He put another parable before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field.

He told them another parable. "The ...

Romans 5:17, "For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ."

The Lion-Taming Church?

Revelation 5:5, "And one of the elders said to me, "Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals."

The Not-For-Today Version of the Bible

Since the end of the 7th century, there have been over 450 versions of the Bible translated into English! In spite of the many versions of the Bible available today, there is one that is not on the market, but is used by multitudes of believers and unbelievers. I call it the "Not-For-Today Version." Many moderns use this version as they rant about how the Bible is just n...
