Sunday Supernaturally: Livin’ in Goshen

There will be a great cry throughout the whole land of Egypt, such as there has never been, nor ever will be again. But against any of the Israelites not even a dog will bark against either people or animals, so that you may know that the LORD distinguishes between Egypt and Israel.’  Exodus 11:6-7 … Continue reading Sunday Supernaturally: Livin’ in Goshen

Sunday Supernaturally: Use it or Lose It

"4 In the human body there are many parts and organs, each with a unique function.   5 And so it is in the body of Christ.  For though we are many, we've all been mingled into one body in Christ.  This means that we are all vitally joined to one another, with each contributing to … Continue reading Sunday Supernaturally: Use it or Lose It

Verbal Vitriol? That’s Unacceptable!

A few days ago, my wife and I were watching television news.  As we cringed at another video of “protestors” screaming and gesticulating in the face of police officers, we were struck by the hatred that spewed out. Unreasoning, shrieking, and red-faced, the black-clad young people seemed to be driven by some dark force beyond … Continue reading Verbal Vitriol? That’s Unacceptable!

Silence? That’s Unacceptable!

Word for the Day: All things to all men. This has been very difficult to write.  I watch the videos of cities being burned, property being destroyed, and the police being vilified, and my flesh wants to fight back. On the other hand, when I hear the phrase “Black lives matter,” I have to say, … Continue reading Silence? That’s Unacceptable!

That’s Unacceptable! Quit It.

The word for the day: If it’s unacceptable, then quit accepting it! We are living in a toxic atmosphere.  People’s lives can be ripped apart just for posting the wrong thing on Twitter, or Instagram, or whatever.  Every word is scrutinized, and failure to toe the party line (whichever party) can lead to violent backlash.  A … Continue reading That’s Unacceptable! Quit It.

Sunday’s Message: This is Unacceptable!

I thought some of you might want to hear the Pentecost Sunday message I preached at FCF Tucson. My heart was breaking over what has been happening in our precious land, so it seemed necessary to address it. If it's unacceptable, then let's quit accepting it. The service opens with "We're Havin' a Party," and … Continue reading Sunday’s Message: This is Unacceptable!

Fighting the Right Fight

The weapons we use in our fight are not the world's weapons but God's powerful weapons, which we use to destroy strongholds. We destroy false arguments;2 Corinthians 10:4 GNB Use Your Weapons Let me begin with a disclaimer.  I actually have come to like President Trump.  When he first ran, his manner was very off-putting … Continue reading Fighting the Right Fight

Pouring Out the Love of God

Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:5 NKJV As I have loved you... What a great idea! My hope is sure because God has poured His love into my heart. The phrase “the love … Continue reading Pouring Out the Love of God

I Need Your Help!

Me and Uncle Charlie I am looking for some help from you concerning the meaning of the term “manhood.” Not a dictionary definition, but a visceral response.  What does your gut say? I did a survey by email a few months back with great responses.  Before I move on to interpreting the results, I want … Continue reading I Need Your Help!
