Standing With and United for Israel!

It's my firm conviction that all Christians should stand with and be united for Israel. In fact, the very title of "Christian" ("Christ-like follower") is contradicted when we fail to do this, since standing with Israel is the foundation of our faith. Also permit me to add one more confession and conviction: In addition, I have abandoned replacement theology. However, le...

Romans 11:22a, "Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God..." Many of us were taught to return thanks at the dinner table by beginning our prayer like this: "God is great. God is good." Some years ago a phrase became very popular and spread throughout the church around the world. It was used in a call-and-response pattern. The worship leader or pastor would sho...

Pampering Saints or Preparing Sons?

Hebrews 12:5-8, "And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? "My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him.

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. These are: Desiring the Kingdom of the Father Primarily Believing the Word of God Pervasively Loving the Son o...

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. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches." He told them another parable. "The ...
