Bigotry and Rejecting the Truth of Individual Depravity

When a culture rejects the truth of the depravity of man (a fallen, sinful nature), they are left with the difficult task of accounting for the existence of evil in the world. This inevitably leads to assuming that evil comes from something external to the individual. Marxism and Wokeism, as did Maslow, points to social institutions as the source of evil: family, church, state, capitalism, e...

Engagement Project Training in Largo, Florida, June 5

I just arrived in Florida for our next Engagement Project Training Conference. We will be at Abundant Life Ministries this Saturday morning. I hope to see you there. We are getting cancelled by Facebook and therefore unable to reach people the way we have been doing in the past. You might want to help out by sending the link to those you might know in Florida that have gone through the Truth...

Engagement Project Training in Alaska

I am in Alaska for an Engagement Project Training Conference. We will be at the Change Point church in Anchorage. Would love to see you there. I have felt compelled to begin meeting with pastors as much as possible. Upon arriving, Jason Maust, chief pilot for Arctic Barnabas (one of my favorite ministries) flew me to Kenai. We had a great meeting with pastors and ministry leaders and then th...

Engagement Project Training in Minnesota

I am in Minnesota for our first Engagement Project Training Conference since having to shut everything down last year. I am excited to get it going again and praying that the Lord will allow us to see the Body of Christ become the light and salt she was meant to be. We will be at the Radisson Road Baptist Church in Ham Lake, north of Minneapolis on Saturday, if you are nearby and can join us...

MLB Action in Perspective

A lot of voting changes were made last year to accommodate COVID. Georgia recently passed some common-sense laws to bring those temporary rules back to normal while actually loosening up some areas. But the President (‘poorly informed’, let’s generously say) rushed in to declare they were worse than Jim Crow and the bandwagon started. Georgia’s new laws were called racis...

Promises, Promises

My thoughts often slip back to the valley in between the crucifixion and the resurrection, especially on this day. The disciples had to have been in an emotional abyss: the deepest of sorrow having lost their Teacher and Friend; the greatest of fear having seen the gruesome scourging and crucifixion, believing they were likely targets as well; the darkest of despair having lost their hopes and ...

God Blesses Us to Bless the World - Psalm 67

In today’s Psalm (67) we find one of those 30,000-foot views that God is gracious to occasionally provide for us. We need these, because we often get caught up in the muck and mire of a world that presses us ever so much inwardly and therefore hopelessly. Here is the key verse: God blesses us… so that all ends of the earth may fear Him. (verse 7) The previous verse provid...

Thoughts on Ravi Zacharias

There aren’t too many people who are known simply by their first name. Ravi is one of them. He is gone now, but instead of leaving a legacy of great work, we are left with worse than nothing. An independent investigation by the law firm, Miller and Martin, through sufficient interviews and examination of cell phone photos and messages, concluded that Ravi engaged in extended sexual mis...

Woke Pharisees

One of several events recorded in the Scriptures that I find somewhat humorous is the time when Jesus healed the beggar who had been blind from birth. He excitedly told people what had happened to him, but they were skeptical that he was really the blind beggar who could now see. So, you have this miraculously healed man essentially running around saying “It’s me! It’s really ...

Mascot Self-Righteous Cancelling Nonsense

I married a direct descendent of Chief Fields. He led the Cherokee delegation to Washington in 1866. I grew up not far from the Fort Hall Indian Reservation in Idaho and had many friends that were from tribes such as the Navajo and Shoshone-Bannock. I am familiar with the difficult circumstances of the American Native Indian and think it remains a major blemish on the American record. Howeve...
