Is Jesus a Socialist?

Is Jesus a Socialist? Believe it or not, there are preachers, theologians, and other religious leaders who
claim that He is. The overwhelming number of those folks are false teachers striving to equate Jesus to
the liberal, leftist views of “progressive Christianity”. Read more…

In the beginning God created…

I was reading the ingredients on the side of a package at the grocery store. It read: “noodles made from
scratch”. Aren’t all noodles made from scratch? In fact, isn’t everything made from scratch? Suppose
you purchase a box of cake mix at the market. All the dry ingredients that go into a cake are mixed
together…from scratch…you add the eggs and milk to finish off the mix, and then bake it. The whole
thing was made from scratch. You just took over the process at some point. You could honesty tell
everyone that the cake was made from scratch. Read more…

Voting

I have voted in 14 presidential elections. I did not always vote wisely, but over the years I have tried to
focus on the platform of a candidate, that is, the candidate’s policies and programs. What will this
candidate bring to the table when it comes to things that matter to me: Religious freedom, the
economy, traditional marriage, abortion, illegal immigration, inflation, racial issues, taxes, and so on? Read more…

Word of God

Several years ago, I talked with a man who told me that God had audibly spoken to him. Does God
speak to us in that manner; can we literally hear the voice of God? Honestly, I can’t say that God will not
audibly speak to someone…He can do what He pleases to do. But it is certainly a rare thing, and we
have to be very careful and discerning when someone claims to hear God’s voice. Read more…

Good ‘ol days

A few folks got to enjoy a taste of ‘’the good ‘ol days” Memorial Day and a few days after. You
remember the good ‘ol days, don’t you? Times were good back then. There was less crime, a higher
sense of morality, a big dose of respect and responsibility…no air conditioning. Wait. What? No air
conditioning? How did people live; how did they survive? Read more…

Generous God

In Matthew 20 verses 1 through 16, Jesus tells the parable of the workers. I’ll paraphrase it but
encourage you to read the scripture for the full context. A vineyard owner hires some workers at
daybreak to work in his field all day. Read more…

30 Seconds

There is a button on our microwave that says, “Quick 30”. The purpose is to make it so that a person
who wants to heat something for 30 seconds only has to tap one button instead of two. That made me
think about two things: Are we so lazy and spoiled that a major selling point of a microwave is that you
only need to touch one button instead of two? The second thing that came to mind was “why 30
seconds? Why not 45 seconds…or even one minute?” My conclusion was that human nature is
predictable. Read more…

last few years over 25% of UMC churches have disassociated with the denomination over LBGTQ+
issues. Read more…

Democracy

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters
discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the
majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the
result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The
average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. Read more…
