  • Rules…

    Apr 21, 2017 | 18:00 pm

    Rules… Rules make promises they can’t keep. A rule promises if you keep it, you won’t get in trouble.  But my brother Steve would break something, then blame me.  It wasn’t fair!  I kept the rules, but then I got punished.   You’ve experienced the same thing.  Something went wrong at work.  You got blamed even though […]

  • 18 Things It Means To Be an Easter Person …

    Apr 18, 2017 | 17:30 pm

    18 Things It Means To Be an Easter Person … To be an Easter Person means: I know Jesus has already fought and won my battles for me. I live in confidence, because no matter what happens, Jesus has me. I spend time each day with this mental picture in my soul: I’m standing with Jesus, looking back over my life (even the parts I […]

  • The Last Will and Testament of Judas Iscariot…

    Apr 14, 2017 | 12:58 pm

    The Last Will and Testament of Judas Iscariot… “I, Judas Iscariot, a troubled soul, do hereby declare this to be my last will and testament.  In a few moments I will end my life, because I have committed the most despicable deed and I can no longer live with myself. Just eight hours ago I betrayed my Master, the one I believed would […]

  • Courage to Come to Church…

    Apr 12, 2017 | 10:42 am

    Courage to Come to Church… I want to tell you a story that didn’t happen to you. On Palm Sunday you got up, made some coffee, and skimmed your Facebook.  You got dressed with a little fear in your heart.  You drove to church scanning the cars you passed for signs of trouble.  You parked some distance away from church […]

  • The Best Reason TO Believe…

    Apr 7, 2017 | 14:13 pm

    The Best Reason TO Believe…   During this recent series, “The Best Reasons Not to Believe,” I’ve spent a lot of time reading blogs and writings of people who don’t believe.  I’ve tried not to condemn or judge, recognizing God gives people the privilege of unbelief.  I’ve been surprised at the number of people who no longer believe who started […]

  • Roland and Carolyn’s House Burns Down…

    Roland and Carolyn’s House Burns Down…   Roland Skipper, married to Carolyn, is my distant cousin who lives in my hometown of Wauchula (actually, everyone in Wauchula is my distant cousin).  His son James is my age and part of the gang of cousins I grew up with. I went to the ranch last week to do take care of some […]

  • Who Weeps with You?

    Mar 31, 2017 | 14:12 pm

    Who Weeps with You? It was one of those uncomfortable moments in the store.  A young mother with three small children was trying to get her shopping done.  The middle child by size (about two, I’d say) was not happy.  She was ready to go home.  I understand that feeling.  After about thirty minutes in a store, I’m ready […]

  • A Sunday at Pocalla Church

    Mar 28, 2017 | 12:46 pm

    A Sunday at Pocalla Church Jock preached this past Sunday, so I took advantage of the opportunity to go to Pocalla Church for the first time.  I admit it felt a little strange; after all, I’ve been preaching to these folks for the past eight weeks and haven’t met some of them.  I’m learning to pastor one church in two […]

  • How can Christian Claim Jesus is the Only Way?

    Mar 24, 2017 | 16:13 pm

    How can Christian Claim Jesus is the Only Way? The argument usually goes like this:  All religions are the same.  Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism are different paths to the same god.  Human beings have gotten it all confused with religious mumbo-jumbo and cloud the picture of who God really is.  If you press someone who is making this argument by asking who […]

    21 Weird Things About Hell     People have wrong ideas about hell.  Here are some teachings of the Christian faith you may not know: God doesn’t send people to hell.  They choose to go because they don’t want to be in His presence forever. There will be a lot of religious people in hell because they knew about God, […]
