Happy 12321

It doesn’t happen too often that a date is a palindrome, which means it reads the same both forward and backward. What is unique about today’s date is that it followed yesterday’s palindrome: 12022021. I leave it to you to figure out when this will ever happen again or if it has ever happened in the past. However, all of this got me thinking about calendar dates and espe...

Roe v. Wade – Is It Possible?

Arguments are being made before the Supreme Court in what some are speculating could be the early indications that they will throw out Roe v. Wade. Wait! Is this possible? Is it possible that a nation who has been so bent on turning away from God could actually reverse one of its most egregious and unethical legal positions? I have to admit being skeptical until USA Today, no less, publis...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#7) The Attack Upon the Biblical Family

Of all the social institutions designed by God, I suppose none is under greater attack than the family. This shouldn’t surprise us, for destroying relationships is the ultimate scheme of Satan and it is here we find the most intimate. Indeed, it seems that the entirety of the world, the flesh and the enemy are today aligned against the biblical family. And the family is the heart of a cul...

Gratitude for Sculpting

It is, I suppose, a mark of our lack of gratitude that we have to set aside a day for it. A few days ago, we were having dinner at my daughter’s house. She and my son-in-law had a large pumpkin on the coffee table upon which our grandkids were daily writing things they were thankful for. I find, unfortunately, that the things that come to my mind in these instances, and what prompted t...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#6) America – Addicted and Soft, Dependent and Lost

When someone is hit with any kind of disease or virus, the most significant factor in whether they will survive or not is their current mental and physical health. Are they strong and hardy or are they weak and lacking the will to fight? It is no different when one is assessing the threats to a culture. Are the people strong in character? Are they resilient and alert? Are they capable of wi...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#5) Rise of a Demonic Worldview and the National Rift

It is dangerous to ignore the reality of Satan and his forces. I am NOT a person who sees a demon behind every bush, but to run to the other side of the continuum and act as if there is no spiritual warfare is folly and contrary to plain biblical teaching. We forget this to our peril: “I am certain that one of the main causes for the ill-state of the church today lies in the fact th...

7 Threats: (#4) The Consolidation of Massive Earthly Power

One of the most fascinating aspects of God’s nature is that He delegates authority and power. We see this from the very beginning of creation when He grants to plants and animals and human beings the authority and responsibility to reproduce, to be fruitful, to multiply and fill the earth. He even delegates to man the privilege to ask God’s Hand to move, such that if he does not ask...

20 Years Ago: A Day of Evil & Sorrow

Those who were alive then, and of age, will never forget. It was a day of unspeakable evil: airplanes hijacked for the sole purpose of massacring thousands of men, women and children, some unborn. It was a new way to make war; a new way to kill; a new way to bring terror. It was cowardice and it was demonic. One side of the world wept in horror; another side celebrated and cheer...

7 Threats: (#3) The Loss of the Noble Male & the Rise of False, Malevolent Compassion

Nothing is judged more severely by our culture today than assertions of biblical male and female absolutes. It may be possible that we are in the final progression of God giving our culture up to first “sexual impurity” then “shameful lusts” and finally a “depraved mind”. And throughout all of this, true human sexuality has been the prime target. The enemy tu...
