So you want to go to heaven…

| June 16, 2017

So there’s a guy named Johnny. Johnny is a pretty busy guy. Johnny has a family, Johnny has friends, Johnny has a job, and Johnny has things that he likes to do. Like I said, he’s a busy guy. Moreover, Johnny really wants to go to heaven, so Johnny even spends time going to church […]

God’s Grace

| June 3, 2017

Paul’s epistle to the Romans. Wow! What an amazing letter. In the Roman letter, Paul seeks the occasion to refute a rumor pertaining to his view and handling of God’s grace. The theory of God’s grace is being perverted today just as much as it was in Paul’s day. An examination of Rom. 3:1-8 reveals […]

One Ounce At A Time

| May 27, 2017

My brother-in-law Marty is an outdoor sports enthusiast. Along with endurance running, he has hiked 148+ miles of the Appalachian Trail that begins at Springer Mountain, Georgia and ends 2200 miles north at Mount Katahdin, Maine. We were discussing his hiking adventures and I asked him about his backpack; how he packed it and what […]

Faith That Defies Logic

| May 22, 2017

One particular day we (me and my dad) were walking with my uncle Allen and my best friend Wayne (cousin, I had one on every block). The Rincon branch flowed through the town and along the property of my uncle William. The water reminded me of the color of tea: however, you could still see […]

The Nature of The Church – The Bride of Christ

| February 23, 2016

One might ask, “What is the nature of the church?” I think this is a very good question to ask, and one that most people do not know the answer to. I also think the best way to address this question, is to first point out what the church is NOT.  The church is NOT […]

Perspective Is The Key!

| February 22, 2016

Our attitude upon studying (even reading) God’s word is going to be the sum total of what we get out of it. So many times we are looking for something in particular; maybe an answered prayer, or divine direction of a path we need to take, that we don’t, or can’t see what is right […]

What was I thinking?

| October 21, 2015

Through the years, my sister and I have been your typical siblings. We‘ve loved and we’ve fought. I will admit the majority of the issues we have had down through the years have been a result of me not knowing when to stop. I will also admit that I love her dearly. You see the […]

10 & 2

| January 11, 2014

10 & 2. That is where they say your hands should be when driving down the road. Your head should be on a swivel. You look ahead at the traffic coming towards you. You look through the rearview mirror, then the right, then the left side mirrors. When coming to an intersection, even if you […]

Veterans Day

| November 10, 2013

Tomorrow is Veterans Day. This is a day to honor all of the men and women who have spent a portion (if not all) of their lives serving this country and protecting our rights. I am extremely thankful! Friday, was a day like any other for me. I woke up, went to work then went […]

Hate

| February 7, 2012

I make the turn down our road, fish-tailing my little Datsun with glee, slowing down quickly before my car is in view of my ever watchful father. When I hit the creosote bridge it sounds out a thump-thump-thump-thump-thump, in quick succession. My hand, and left foot work in unison, gearing down again into second for […]
