What’s on the Other Side?

The old saying is, “It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.” That is true when kids are rough housing and things go dangerously awry. But life can be that way too. Quite often, it seems, human beings go through life with little thought to what happens when we breathe our last. Life is all fun and games, for lots of people, until the music stops and there is no chair to grab onto. … Continue reading

Cultural Thin Ice

  I don’t always agree with Doug Wilson at Blog and Mablog, which goes without saying but, of course, must be said in the age of Twitter where guilt by association has risen to high art. Don’t even assume I agree with everything he says in the blog post this quote comes from.

Schadenfreude Ain’t a Town in Germany

There are a whole lot of people right now that are very happy. They are happy because the tide of the culture war seems to have shifted.

Teaching in churches is a very important part of the ministry, but it is only one part. Some do not realize that long hours of … Continue reading

Christians are being hated and attacked for our beliefs. Of course, hatred of Christians has been the norm in many places for centuries, but it is a rather new thing to American Christians. Maybe Christians were teased, perhaps made fun of … Continue reading

Imminent Domain

I am not a fan of eminent domain. The story of Susette Kelo made me mad. In Kelo v. New London, the US Supreme Court ruled that property from one private person can be seized by the government and given to another private entity. The optics couldn’t have been worse. Susette’s little pink house, the last hold out against the seizing hand of the municipal government ready to give her property over to the giant … Continue reading
