Don’t push it, or, how much do you think you can get away with?

A few nights ago in Des Moines, Iowa, Toyusi Johnson by all indications decided to get behind the wheel of his vehicle while drinking. In one sense, it didn't end well. In another sense, he was very fortunate even though he didn't deserve it. While driving at a high rate of speed, Johnson smashed into… Continue reading Don’t push it, or, how much do you think you can get away with?

The US may not be as far gone as Europe, but we still have lots of room for improvement

I've said several times before how pleased I am about President Trump and his conservative policies when it comes to abortion, national security, federal regulations, taxes, Israel, and other things. I'm glad the US is not socialist or authoritarian as so much of the rest of the world (especially Europe), but we are not even… Continue reading The US may not be as far gone as Europe, but we still have lots of room for improvement

It’s frustrating to see the wicked prosper

I'll be honest. It's exasperating to see how often evil people get away with all their wicked schemes, especially when they become prosperous because of it, in the world or church. I've often wondered why God is quick to call my faults to my attention and put up hurdles or walls for me until I… Continue reading It’s frustrating to see the wicked prosper

When God doesn’t judge as we had hoped

The prophet Jonah is a representation of how we as Christians can become sometimes, if we're not careful. He was close to God and was used by God in powerful ways, but he was callous and self-centered when it came to his attitude toward Nineveh. Jonah had no choice but to do what God commanded… Continue reading When God doesn’t judge as we had hoped

The end times rape culture

No one deserves to be raped, whether female or male, child or adult, incarcerated prisoner or law abiding citizen roaming free. It's just as wrong for a female to rape a male as it is for a male to rape a female regardless the age or status of the victim. Thanks to various women's movements… Continue reading The end times rape culture

When rulers overestimate themselves, God’s judgment is sure to follow

The era leading up to Judah's Babylonian captivity was overwhelmingly corrupt. There were many warning signs that typified their downward spiral. If we study them, we can see the same things happening in our world today. Isaiah pointed out a lot of the warning signs by God's direction and offered Judah several opportunities to repent,… Continue reading When rulers overestimate themselves, God’s judgment is sure to follow

How spiritual compromises weaken nations

"I took you in when no one else wanted you and raised you to be royalty, but you chose to become a whore instead." That's the basic message God prophesies about Israel and Judah in Ezekiel 16 and 23. The Lord through the prophet Ezekiel tells the story about the glorious blessings those nations had… Continue reading How spiritual compromises weaken nations

Bad boy gone good: how & why God forgave a murderous occultist

Manasseh, the king of Judah and son of the righteous king Hezekiah, must have had some type of "daddy issues." In spite of him witnessing how his father's righteousness had made Judah become the most prosperous it had ever been, including technological advances (2 Kings 20:20), Manasseh rebelled against everything his father did and reversed… Continue reading Bad boy gone good: how & why God forgave a murderous occultist

When the stars align for God’s judgment

In Biblical prophecies about the last days, the Lord uses celestial bodies prominently in his judgments. Whether it's the sun, moon, stars, or other objects in space, they will be used by God to send a message. Why is that? We find in the scriptures that God often correlates his judgments to specific sins as… Continue reading When the stars align for God’s judgment
