  • God is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9)

    A. W. Tozer said, “One compromise here. Another there. And soon the so-called Christian, and the man in the world, look the same.”

    When someone is truly born again, their faith in the Lord changes them. Their actions and behaviors change, letting the world know in whom they have believed. And while their works are not the cause or reason for salvation, they are the evidence or proof of salvation. The word faith is used here as a verb, and it is always demonstrated by action.

  • You have a voice

    2 Timothy 1:7 ESV

    For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

    Often preachers such as myself mention that we as people of Christ are the Body of Christ, the physical attachments that are Christ’s tools and servants in this world. As I write this, I think of one’s mouth as being used as the physical Body of Christ.

  • Anatomy of an apology

    By the time you read this, this will be old news and the nation will most likely have already moved on to the next outrageous thing.

    However, as I’m writing this, Kathy Griffin is making headlines.

    Who is Kathy Griffin (and why should you care)? She’s a 56-year-old comedian and self-identified “D-list celebrity” known for being abrasive, brash, crude and sarcastic.

    Most recently she made the national news when she posed for a photo, holding up the fake, but realistic, bloody decapitated head of President Donald Trump.
