Jesus on Elder Care

Jesus on Elder Care

Thursday was Thanksgiving, a time when traditionally families come together for a meal and hopefully to enjoy one another’s company. However, some financial analysts are predicting a war, here on the ground in America; a financial war between the generations, a war over how to pay, or even if to pay for the promises that have been made.

Jesus on the Sabbath

Jesus on the Sabbath

We tend to have a Sunday School version of Jesus - meek and mild, never did anything to upset anyone, never said a word that ruffled anyone’s feathers, always perfectly met the social expectations of His times and was never in hot water with the authorities, neither the civil authorities nor the religious authorities. That Sunday School version of Jesus is in sharp contrast with the realities we are confronted with in a careful reading of the Gospel accounts.

Which Law? Which Day?

Which Law? Which Day?

Every law is the legislation of morality. When people deny this is so, they usually are confusing the terms. Yes, it is true that we cannot change someone’s heart, we cannot force them to faith in Christ by legislation, yet every piece of legislation crafted is expressing that one thing is right and something else is wrong. One thing is just, something else is unjust. One thing is good and something else is evil. It is all an expression of the values of the legislator.

Rest that Rejuvenates

Ideas have consequences, and especially false ideas about God. The god of a particular culture is that entity which is above the law because it is the ultimate source of law. It is that to which all allegiance and loyalty is due. If that one to whom all loyalty is due is not the One True God, the God of the Bible, then that culture is worshiping an idol.

Honoring the One True God

It is now beyond question that Christianity is under direct assault in the culture war. “The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity to Annise Parker, the city’s first openly daughter of Sodom mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.”

No To Graven Images

This past Monday the Supreme Court, in typical fashion, issued its decree for the destruction of God’s Holy Institution of marriage in America. By refusing a writ of certiorari, it condemned five more States immediately, and potentially all the remaining States in the union, to have sodomite un-marriage forced upon them. What is very significant in this is that this would be against the plain statements of those State Constitutions as well as State law, not to mention six thousand years of human history.

Do you remember the apocalyptic scenario Al Gore was peddling seven years ago? He claimed human activity was the cause of global warming and that the polar icecap was melting, which would cause a catastrophic rise in sea level, devastating coastal regions where the majority of the world’s population resides. As he accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his global warming campaign, he said, “The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff. It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.” Well we are at that seven-year mark…

The Ten Commandments

Today many persons have a great misunderstanding in thinking that if they follow Christianity they don’t have liberty. That is far from the truth. In fact, Christianity when followed correctly brings liberty – not bondage.

Experiencing God

Experiencing God

One of the things leveled against the sound and accurate preaching of God’s Word is that it is impractical and irrelevant to the issues we face every day. Nothing could be further from the truth. God the Creator of all things gives us this book of wisdom so that we may know how we are to live, how we are to make wise decisions, and how we are to conduct ourselves in the most important aspects of life.

War with ISIS: Don’t Touch the Mountain

We were told last week that the greatest threat to our well being today is some new Mohamedean group ISIS who is ravaging the Middle East. We have also been advised that the best security is for us to go to war against this new threat. So last Wednesday the imposter essentially declared war against ISIS.
