God in the Beginning
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV) Such a well known verse, even if it isn’t a well-believed verse. But the first verse in the Bible is THE foundation scripture for life! In the beginning… To show you what I mean, read it again, and this time move a…
Liberal God or Conservative God?
You may think I’m nuts, crazy, and loony; and maybe I am. But I believe God is the biggest liberal this world has ever seen or known! Yep! Bigger than George Soros. He’s also the biggest conservative ever. Yes, even bigger than Ronald Reagan. Allow me to explain myself; beginning first with “liberal“.
The NEW Year
Well, it’s December 30th, and soon the year 2013 will be history. This is the time many reflect upon things they did well, and some maybe not so well. Many will make half-hearted resolutions to quit this, start that, while deep down knowing nothing will change. Most resolutions won’t last for 24 hours; but that’s…
The Christmas Fence
Have you ever considered the value of a fence? I mean, why do people build fences? You never hear of animals building them; only people find it necessary to have a fence. Only people NEED a fence. There are various kinds of fences: wooden, privacy, chain link, barbed wire, and split rail fences to name…
Meet with God

Fragile meets Unbreakable, impotent meets Omnipotent at the place of worship; above the Mercy Seat, between the two cherubim. “There I will meet with you, and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are on the ark of the testimony,…
Just suppose you’re out for a little exercise. You know, just a little walk around the block. You’re minding your own business, when something catches your eye. Across the street is a burning bush. No, I’m not referring to a winged euonymus, a bush that turns bright red each fall. I’m talking about one like…
A Pleasurable Python?
How much pleasure can be derived from having a 12 foot Python as a pet? A pet, according to the dictionary, is “a domesticated animal kept for pleasure rather than utility.” So how would someone find pleasure in a huge, powerful snake? Maybe the snake could be trained to fetch a newspaper. Imagine the look…
Looking for God? Are you sure He’s around? What if He doesn’t want to have anything to do with you? Maybe there really isn’t a God! Perhaps you’re just wasting your time looking for someone who isn’t real in the first place. Okay, suppose there is a God; what makes you think He gives a…
Let’s Vote On It!
Let’s vote on it! Those 4 little words carry a lot of weight with the American people. Whether it pertains to the national presidential election every 4 years, a local school board election, who should be the next winner of American Idol, or trying to decide which restaurant has the best breaded tenderloin sandwich in…
I’m a Believer!
I am a believer. A believer in God. A believer because of God. A believer born of God. A believer filled with God. A believer in Jesus Christ! I choose to believe God’s word, rather than what my senses whisper to my brain. I agree with the Spirit’s witness within my heart instead of siding…
