Just Because You Think It, Doesn’t Make It So!


Have you ever woke up one morning and didn’t know what day it was?

That happened to me. Yesterday.

A little background is in order. Or as my wife, Norma Jean, would say I’m getting ready to make excuses! Continue reading

Upholding Truth In A Secular Society


One of our regular readers, Stephen, recently responded to my post last week, “What is Truth?”

“But how you (and other socially conservative Christians) commonly define “Truth” in rigid absolute right/wrong terms sometimes pushes me away,” Stephen wrote. “In saying that God’s “Truth” is absolutely clear-cut creates the Todd Aikens of this world.”  Continue reading

What is Truth?

Truth.2Telling the Truth or accepting something as absolute truth is definitely on the decline in our age of relativism, subjectivism, and secularism.  Our culture reminds me of this old story.

Tuesday night I watched with interest several of the RNC speakers. The diversity was interesting.  Not only from the standpoint of race or gender, but of speaking style and content.

The Truth

Winston Churchill once said, “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.”  This is not only true in physical and material matters, but it is often true spiritually as well.

What Do You Know?

          Leon Mauldin tells about seeing a message on a church marquee that read:  “A church with few answers, many questions, but great faith.”  On the surface that sounds good.  It sounds humble.  Here is a church open, willing to consider everything from a fresh perspective.  A church not rigid, not bound by traditionalism.  Continue reading
