If rules and doctrines no longer matter, why have them? In another violation of biblical principles, the progressive United Methodist Church (UMC) voted to make “Reverend” Cedrick Bridgeforth, an openly gay man, a bishop at their official meeting last week. Of course, they did. After being elected, Bridgeforth told those gathered at the Western Jurisdiction meeting that […]

Discipline of the Mind and Devotion
The human mind is powerful and God intended for us to use it for His purposes. But in our high tech, instant everything, ADHD, IPhone society, we’re often too busy, distracted, and self-discipline is either fleeting or resisted. If this is the case, our spiritual lives are out of balance. Remember: No discipline, no discipleship. […]
Is America Ready For A ‘Gay Christian’ President?
The new mantra these days that you have your truth and I have mine is simply an extension of the 1960s, “If it feels good, do it.” So, should sin be redefined based on ever-changing times and pop-culture? What about the Law of Nature and nature’s God? Is there a moral standard? And now, we […]
Why Are We Afraid Of Death?
Just a week ago I was in the hospital after having a procedure on my heart and guess what? Here I am, thank God! But not everybody makes it through surgery. In fact, not everybody makes it home from work. It brings up the question of the ages: What happens to us after we die? […]

Some say we should just ‘Coexist;’ live and let live, that all religions lead to the same place. But they can’t all be true… can they?

The phrase ‘Judge ye not’ is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and misapplied biblical concepts. Rarely does anyone want to confront sin, and rarely does a sinner want to be confronted. This presents a problem. As the avalanche of immorality in America continues consuming many professing Christians, the idea of judging has become even […]
WHY TRUTH MATTERS: Your Worldview Affects Everything!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. …And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we […]
Gay Marriage is Not God’s Marriage
We’ve just been given another wake-up call, this time from the U.S. Supreme Court as it struck down a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) this week. That provision prevented married gay couples from receiving tax, health, and retirement benefits. This is another reminder that it is up to the people rather […]
