What can you give God that He doesn't already have?
I keep hearing the most hysterical, irrational and unbiblical things about illegal immigration. "It's un-Christian to deport people; it's racist to build a wall; you can't be a Christian if you're against illegal immigration!"
But the day has come where there is proof that I'm "more sciencey" (technical term) than ALL of the atheistic/pagan left.
I invested three hours reading, and my return was over 4,000 hours of talking to my heavenly Father. That's a fantastic return on my investment.
In spite of Thanksgiving being a favorite of many, we often don't "get it." It's all about gratitude.
Diversity can be good. Or bad. It's so simple even a monkey gets it! Don't believe me?
The sexual mores of the day are schizophrenic, contradictory and irrational. Consider the following, and then I'll tell you WHY they are that way:
We often think it's the wind and waves that will sink us. Or the hurricanes or the floods. Or the disease and destruction. Wrong. Dead wrong.
What do you do when life threatens to crush your very soul? When devastation hits you it's sometimes easy to turn from God – and that's precisely the wrong place to be.
If He's not near, I can't afford to be gentle, and neither can you. Because you HAVE to look out for yourself. If He's not near and everyone's wringing their hands, so am I. But What If God IS Near?
Lots of confusion about what it means to be a man these days (and at least since the 1970's). A few years back a political campaign thought the "pajama boy" ad would really get men psyched up about discussing health insurance (this ad brought to you courtesy of estrogen!).
Every day people go out into the world to win, without thinking through the consequences of winning. What will you win? What is the prize?
Here are my thoughts on ways to combat a discourse that has become both verbally and physically violent, dishonest and profane:
I must admit that for years, I thought this was a stupid, stupid question. But as I've grown older, and a little (teeny tiny bit) wiser through experience, I must admit – it's a good question.
The world is a horribly dark place as evidenced by the Islamic terrorist blowing himself up along with 22 kids and parents in Manchester. And what can I do about horrific darkness like Islamic terrorism?
Last week Shane Claiborne, social activist, tweeted that the death penalty is a disgrace to Jesus.
We are all just like, more and more totally awesome, right? We have to be!
A recent article revealed how disturbingly deviant Mike Pence really is. He said (HIDE THE CHILDREN'S EYES — IT'S HORRIFYING!): He doesn't dine alone with a woman other than his wife. The truth of our day is that for many, a serial adulterer is a hero and the man who sets boundaries for himself is the freak.
Oh wait — you didn't think I meant "hammered" as in inebriated, intoxicated, wasted or drunk did you?
As a kid, I was fascinated by fortune tellers. I wanted to know the future!! But fortune telling is demonic.
I hate to be a frumpy, grumpy old man, but if the new movie, The Shack, is true to the book of the same name, it is really whacked.
One day in the land of Matthew 4:18, Jesus is walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee. He sees two brothers — Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew — throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living.
Oops! Left a word out. Should be, "Why I Love to Ridicule the Bachelor." As the kids say, "my bad!"
Every so often, Christmas Day falls on a Sunday. And even though the other 51 weeks a year, churches all across America gather to praise the name of Jesus no matter what, when Sunday and Christmas collide, some churches feel the need to cancel Sunday worship so that the true meaning of Christmas can be experienced in all its fantastic, fabulous glory.
Hey! If you read that and thought I was writing about something else and some song is stuck in your head, that's on you and your poor music choices! And, I'm sure I have no idea what song that might be … just saying.
