Can we really “enjoy” our Bibles?

To many people, the Bible is an old-fashioned book that's fine for little old ladies and funerals but of limited or no value in their daily life. How wrong they are! The Bible can be an exciting book and more up-to-date than tomorrow's newspaper. I [...]

About Nothing

About nothing, one may think, nothing can be said. It does look like an unlikely subject for a teaching. Plato would disagree; he said "I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing." Around 1600 Shakespeare [...]

“We Want Another Pentecost”

I learned an essential lesson as a young Christian, and that was not to take my theology from hymns or praise and worship songs, but only from the Bible. For example, in the denomination in which I was brought up, we sang this song written [...]

I read on Facebook recently a post from a minister I have personally known for 50 years, who has been told by his physician that he is dying after a four-year battle with disease. I pray that he will recover. In one of 500+ comments [...]

The above title, "Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!" is taken from a Broadway musical that was popular in the United States in the 1960s and revived in the 1980s. It concluded with the song "What Kind of Fool Am I?". The title [...]

It’s a New Year! Really?

Now that we have celebrated Christmas in all its glory, and have done so religiously as well as commercially, we are immediately face-to-face with what we call the New Year. But is it really the start of the year? The Jewish calendar has a specific [...]

In a recent post I shared the importance of Jesus' statement, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4 and Luke 4:4 [ESV], quoted from Deuteronomy 8:3). The Word of God is the first [...]

Man Shall Not Live by Krispy Kremes® Alone
