It really doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or a Democrat. You could be a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan and find that you’ll agree with a Philadelphia Eagles fan, at least on this one point. Even the redneck and the socialite will find common ground here. I think we can all agree. During this COVID-19 […]

Today’s Blog is a guest post from my wife, Heather. Enjoy! “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as […]

Don’t Threaten the Church

April 1, 2020

I’m a Christian Pastor. I believe the temporary suspension of public gatherings to be the wisest course of action as we follow the suggestions of our government officials, the scientific community, and the emphatic media.

Ministerial Jealousy

February 17, 2020

They call him the little green-eyed monster.   The Bible calls it envy. I call it part of my spiritual journey. I know that I’m experiencing ministerial jealousy when… Instead of Rejoicing, I Find Fault All I can remember thinking when I entered the Children’s Ministry complex of NewSpring Church in Wichita was, “what I wouldn’t give […]

Monday Morning Lies

December 30, 2019

It was there that Christ disarmed your enemy, making a public spectacle of him, and shaming them into utter submission.

The History of KJV Onlyism

November 25, 2019

Seldom do friends agree in totality on every subject.  I have friends who prefer Popeye’s to Chick-Fil-A.  I have friends who prefer Star Trek to Star Wars.  I even have friends who cheer for LSU!  THIS DRIVES ME CRAZY!  Why?  Because, I’m a control freak, and everyone should see everything as I do.  However, I’ve learned that I cannot demand conformity of my friends without fundamentally altering […]
