Many years ago, my wife and I wrote a book on the subject of the 7 deadly sins. It was called “A Way of Escape.” It was not a bestseller, but we did get many requests from prisoners for the book. Perhaps that had something to do with the title. I remember one time when Bill Maher held the book up when I was a guest on his ABC-TV show. […]

I saw a recent hand-held sign from a protester on television with the words: “Which side of history are you on?” With another Christmas approaching, I can’t overstate how relevant that notion is when it comes to Christ’s kingdom, which began 2000 years ago and will one day see its wider fulfillment. Christmas is a special time of year, by anybody’s reckoning. It isn’t because it’s winter solstice. It isn’t […]

Last month a college professor of economics at UC Davis made some headlines by basically asserting that there is no American Dream. It’s a myth. He crunched the numbers, supposedly disproving it. Hmm. My dad used to always say, “Did you ever hear about the statistician who drowned in a river, the average depth of which was 6 inches?” Sacramento.cbslocal.com reported Nov. 16 on the findings of professor Gregory Clark, […]

I gave this little speech on December 3, 2014 in Kristiansand, Norway. The foundation that underwrote his ministry graciously provided the opportunity for Kirsti (my wife) and me to travel there to pay our respects at his funeral. He will […]

The depths of anti-Christian depravity found among some of the intelligentsia in our post-Christian culture has reached a new low. As if that were possible. Just in time for Christmas, a season of joy and giving spawned by the birth of Christ, one can now buy a gold necklace fashioned by a fancy designer, celebrating male genitalia, in the form of a cross. Can you imagine a gold crescent mocking […]

In years past, atheists have put up billboards in places like New York City to discourage people from attending church at Christmas time (or any time, for that matter). Now they’re bring their campaign to the Bible belt. A report from their own source (news.atheists.org, 12/1, 2014 years after the reported birth of Jesus) notes: “The billboards feature a young girl writing a letter to Santa; her letter reads, ‘Dear […]

Another Christmas season begins. Get ready to read the headlines of the new lawsuits by the “civil libertarians” ready to throw the baby-in-the-manger out with the bathwater. I remember years ago when somebody called the Christmas season, “The Advent of Controversy.” Why is Christmas such a big deal? Let’s put it this way—why do groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Americans United for Separation of Church and […]

Joey Adams told a joke that goes like this: Did you ever hear about the ungrateful lady at the beach who had a little child with her? She was too close to the water, and a big wave came in. By the time the water went back into the sea, she realized her son was missing. She looked all around for her little boy and cried out: “Melvin…Melvin…where are you, […]
