America At War With Herself

(This originally appeared in the Fall 2002 edition of the MCOI Journal) In the August 9, 2002 on-line edition of World Net Daily, in an article entitled Why are Christians Losing America?, David Kupelian writes:   Most Americans call themselves Christians.   Twice they chose as their supreme leader Bill Clinton – a sexual predator and pathological liar who regarded the “religious right” as enemies and radical homosexuals as friends, and who by any meaningful and historical … Continue reading

Not the 144,000 but maybe the 110?

When we think of missionaries, we tend to think in terms of PLACE. Missionaries go places, like foreign lands, don’t they? We call them “mission fields”. They exist in exotic faraway places like Zaire, Ghana, Bolivia and many other “mission fields.” But still, they all revolve around PLACE — a country or, maybe, a continent. “He’s a missionary to Africa,” we might say, or “She has been called to Botswana.” These were the opening words … Continue reading

Moral Clarity and the Good Wife

The characters on CBS’s ”The Good Wife are often, to be kind, morally challenged. The characters are lawyers, so the fact that they are portrayed as liars who will do or say anything to win their case, may reflect what CBS thinks of lawyers in general, but of course that does not make it morally right. Likewise, in their personal lives, they live completely according to their own whims, sexual and otherwise, with no regard … Continue reading

WWMD (What Would Muhammad Do?)

The first time I met and spent any real time talking with a Muslim was in 1993. I was at the centennial celebration of The Parliament of the World’s Religions .

Sometimes it was fun to just stand by and … Continue reading

Creation Changes Everything

An old joke illustrates just how radical and trans-formative the concept of creation and creator is. God was once approached by a scientist who said, “Listen God, we’ve decided we don’t need you anymore. These days we can clone people, transplant organs and do all sorts of things that used to be considered miraculous.” God replied, “Don’t need me huh? How about we put your theory to the test. Why don’t we have a competition to see … Continue reading

The Unappeasable Cry-Baby Boomers Sexual Revolution

2 Timothy 3:1-5 has an interesting description of people in the “last days.” One of the descriptors is “unappeasable.” I like that word. It is also an accurate description of what we are seeing today. The definition is simple and easy to understand. According to the Oxford Dictionaries adjective: unappeasable not able to be pacified, placated, or satisfied. No matter what changes are made or what is done the “unappeasable” won’t be happy. They are … Continue reading
