You Lost?

The internet is quite the angry place this week. Some of the arguments are like this: “We should be able to murder children in the womb because they will all just be killed by a mass shooter at school if they’re allowed to live now.”..or… “There’s a temporary baby formula shortage right now so obviously…

Enough

Many peoples’ belts are a little tighter these days, and not just from the Crunch & Munch Buttery Toffee Popcorn found in the dollar section at the Dollar General off of Mountain Road. Prices may fluctuate a bit, but they are trending higher and higher. Most people I talk to are saying they’re finding it…

Life Hack #1

It’s cool these days to say that Christianity is stupid and oppressive. But I say the opposite is true. I say if you reject the Bible’s teachings; if you you divorce your life from the One who created it; you are in for a world of hurt and bitter disappointment; if not in this life,…

Christians and Sin

All sin separates us from God. This means a few things (well, a few that I want to touch on. You don’t have all day. I count myself lucky you’ve read this far). First, it means that no one person has better standing than another in front of God. If we are without Christ, we…

(Dis)Unity

Do you ever look at the disunity in the church and wonder what the heck is going on? Why do some Christians espouse only grace and mercy without a whisper of repentance, while others yell about the judgment of God; failing to soften the blow with the equal force of God’s unfailing love and forgiveness?…

Yes, We Can

There is very little we can actually control. I think we all feel the truth of that these days; as we watch yet another catastrophe unfold; as we hear of loved ones gone far too soon; as those leading our nation seem to be, at best, asleep at the wheel. And people are so stinking…

Keep On Truckin’

Can I be honest? I’m afraid our country might be screwed up beyond repair. I hate to say that, but, again, when you kick God out, as our nation has done, chaos reigns. I do take heart in the fact that we were able to elect a decent governor in Virginia this past November. He…

The War Zone

Can you feel the ground shaking under your feet? Do you smell the ever-present smoke, acrid and thick, making it hard to breathe? Can you sense the enemies that encircle you like a malevolent vapor, like a cold fog in the damp woods, bringing on an uncontrollable shiver? Do you hear the people screaming as…

Just Do It? Nah.

With clarity comes conviction. What the Lord has made clear to me this past couple years is that when you don’t conform to culture, it makes people angry. The Lord has also taught me to be okay with that. You know why? Because what our culture wants us to conform to its twisted, godless values….

You Can’t Fix Crazy

Who is the person that just irritates the living daylights out of you? Can you see their face? Is it me? Regardless of who it is, we all have people in our lives that are hard to get along with. Sometimes, it feels like they go out of their way just to make life unpleasant…
