Kruptikos: When a New Culture Arose and the Definition of Words Changed

“It’s a hammer of justice, it’s a bell of freedom, it’s a song about the love between a brother and a sister, all over this land.” Peter, Paul and Mary It is easy to look at the 60’s as a major turning point in America. It would also be easy to go too far in consigning everything there, for in actuality the forces of change go back to Rousseau and beyond...

Don’t Say: If the Foundations Are Destroyed, What Can the Righteous Do?

In today’s Psalm 11, we find a verse that I believe has sometimes been misused. Here it is: “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Occasionally, you will hear it quoted to support a cry or plea regarding what is happening in our nation. The purpose is to rally listeners to stand against the forces that seek to destroy our national foundations,...

Happy 12321

It doesn’t happen too often that a date is a palindrome, which means it reads the same both forward and backward. What is unique about today’s date is that it followed yesterday’s palindrome: 12022021. I leave it to you to figure out when this will ever happen again or if it has ever happened in the past. However, all of this got me thinking about calendar dates and espe...

Roe v. Wade – Is It Possible?

Arguments are being made before the Supreme Court in what some are speculating could be the early indications that they will throw out Roe v. Wade. Wait! Is this possible? Is it possible that a nation who has been so bent on turning away from God could actually reverse one of its most egregious and unethical legal positions? I have to admit being skeptical until USA Today, no less, publis...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#7) The Attack Upon the Biblical Family

Of all the social institutions designed by God, I suppose none is under greater attack than the family. This shouldn’t surprise us, for destroying relationships is the ultimate scheme of Satan and it is here we find the most intimate. Indeed, it seems that the entirety of the world, the flesh and the enemy are today aligned against the biblical family. And the family is the heart of a cul...

Gratitude for Sculpting

It is, I suppose, a mark of our lack of gratitude that we have to set aside a day for it. A few days ago, we were having dinner at my daughter’s house. She and my son-in-law had a large pumpkin on the coffee table upon which our grandkids were daily writing things they were thankful for. I find, unfortunately, that the things that come to my mind in these instances, and what prompted t...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#6) America – Addicted and Soft, Dependent and Lost

When someone is hit with any kind of disease or virus, the most significant factor in whether they will survive or not is their current mental and physical health. Are they strong and hardy or are they weak and lacking the will to fight? It is no different when one is assessing the threats to a culture. Are the people strong in character? Are they resilient and alert? Are they capable of wi...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#5) Rise of a Demonic Worldview and the National Rift

It is dangerous to ignore the reality of Satan and his forces. I am NOT a person who sees a demon behind every bush, but to run to the other side of the continuum and act as if there is no spiritual warfare is folly and contrary to plain biblical teaching. We forget this to our peril: “I am certain that one of the main causes for the ill-state of the church today lies in the fact th...

The Lord is Blessing: Next Up Wisconsin

We had a wonderful EP training conference in Indiana this week and next week (Oct 16) we will be in Neenah, Wisconsin at the Calvary Bible Chapel. If you are in the area or can get there, I would love to see you. The Lord is really blessing our conferences by deeply touching hearts and minds. Someone told that God had just turned their life inside out. This was in response to my saying that ...
