In recent days we've witnessed the outpouring of grief and personal memories that were triggered with the untimely passing of one of our great actor/comedians in Robin Williams. Th ...
I had a terrific time on Thanksgiving with my in-laws eating wonderful food and playing Sequence until the late hours of the evening. Julie and I then enjoyed a lime and bitter drink before headed down for the evening. I however chose to head out to fight the Black Friday crowds at Shopko. I was able to wrangle up a... Read more »
Just staying up late tonight getting a head start on an assignment for Beth Landy’s class which is Career and Life Planning at Lane Community College. My wife and I discussed whether I would be attending LCC for the Winter Term or not, as our home financial situation will require additional income. I prefer not to attend full-time until I’m...

Once again, we’re reminded at how fragile life actually is. First the Twin Towers collapsing on 9/11 and earlier today we have a school shooting of unprecedented magnitude in the US. Without a moments notice, helpless life vanishes from the planet. Surely such things happen frequently in other societies yet we are none the wiser since our American culture tends... Read more »
I just read a terrific article tonight posted at galatiansc4v16 regarding liberalism in our churches today. For those of you who need a wonderful way to explain this prevalent mindset to others, feel free to share the link. The article was originally found on The Christian Research Institute website and is now off line for some reason or another, otherwise... Read more »
These past couple of days I have not been able to fall asleep at night. This is quite abnormal for me, despite my prior entry titled ‘restless sleep’. I’m about to go on a Men’s Retreat with our church (coined “Men’s Advance” so as to not imply weakness, ….since when have we tried so hard to appease the seeker crowd?)... Read more »
Yesterday, I felt the urge to pray on behalf on those who are being persecuted for standing for the truth of the Gospel, as is no longer common here in the States. Slice of Laodicea asked for believers to intercede on behalf of people who speak out in particular, against the Emergent Church but also to the Purpose-Driven paradigm and any other... Read more »
While talking to God before bed the other night, I was struck with a sobering thought. I pictured millions of professing Christians being sent to Hell on account of how they lived their lives. With this in mind, I prayed that I would not be found as someone who would bury my coin in the ground and be found as... Read more »
As I well know, there are many popular blogs online that are updated on a daily basis. Mine however is one that receives posts only when I take the time to do so. Sadly, this was never my intent for this site or for anything I do online. When I take the effort to do anything online, it is usually... Read more »
The other day while driving home from work, I felt the need to listen to this song on my iPod. To me it perfectly symbolizes the horrid state of the church in America. It describes the unfortunate state of a church fallen by the wayside where the pastors seem more concerned about church size and less about doctrinal substance. The... Read more »
Recently I’ve wondered what would be the best way to confront a friend or family member regarding their belief in a false doctrine or line of Chrsitian thought such as being involved in the word of faith or purpose-driven movements. Sometimes lovingly bringing up issues like these can be difficult to address if you don’t approch it in the correct manner.... Read more »
