First published within a week of my granddaughter’s birth (6/18/13): Every day God glorifies Himself in His creation, whether we recognize it or not. That’s true at the telescopic level or at the microscopic level and everywhere in between. When I behold my newly born granddaughter, I can’t believe the denial on the part of so many in our culture of the handiwork of the Creator. Since her birth, I […]

Our Christmas has come and gone. But for the Coptic Christians in Egypt, Christmas is commemorated on January 6, the day tradition holds the wise men (the Maji) came from the East, bearing gifts for the Christ child. Western Christians have celebrated Christmas on December 25, the date held early on as the day of Christ’s birth. Eastern Christians celebrate His birth on January 6. An early Church council tried […]

Imagine two men engaged in a conversation on an international flight. These two men, presumably businessmen, are strangers to each other. As they talked with each other, it was revealed that one was a businessman. The second man was a representative of a worldwide organization with franchises in every country. “Really?” asked the first. “You must work for Coca Cola.” “No,” replied the second, “We have far more field representatives […]

If we asked the question, “Are children a burden or a blessing?” of course, the answer would be “a blessing.” The Bible says so. But you wouldn’t necessarily know it today. President Obama said famously that he hopes his daughters wouldn’t engage in sex before it is time; but if they do, he wouldn’t want them to be “punished with a baby.” A baby is punishment? It was reported recently […]

The ACLU is busy chipping away at religious freedom in our country again. They have successfully brought suit in the Denver area to force a Christian cake-maker to violate his own beliefs or face a fine. This story is becoming increasingly common, where a Christian baker, florist, photographer in good conscience cannot support the homosexual lifestyle. Yet the authorities are forcing them to violate their conscience or lose their livelihood. […]

Every year at Christmastime, like clockwork, you can expect the mainstream media to come out with some sort of “fresh” perspective on Jesus. We see this on TV specials and in magazines and reports. Since December has just begun, I thought I’d be pro-active in answering the critics. The basic questions are these: Can we trust the Bible? Can we trust the Gospels? If they were put on trial, as […]

One of my favorite times of year is Thanksgiving. What a great tradition—where we gather together to recount the Lord’s blessings. I love the statement from columnist Mark Steyn: “Speaking as a mistfit unassimilated foreigner, I think of Thanksgiving as the most American of holidays.” Consider its history as a holiday. A year before the Pilgrims even landed, in 1619, Jamestown (the first permanent British settlement in North America) had […]

There’s an old joke that says: How do you describe an atheist at his funeral? “All dressed up with no place to go.” Now, all jokes aside, there is a place atheists can go on Sundays. There’s a new type of “atheist church” that has been founded by a couple from England, and apparently it’s taking off. Writing for the AP (11/11/13), Gillian Flaccus penned an article called, “Atheist ‘mega-churches’ […]

If you’ve been pro-life for any length of time, you know it’s easy to develop battle fatigue. Last week’s election saw a strongly pro-abortion rights candidate beat the pro-life candidate for the governorship of Virginia. However, clearly, there were many other factors at work. Meanwhile, Gov. Christie of New Jersey is pro-life and won a landslide. But again there were many other factors at work. The politicians aren’t the ones […]
