Faith in the Face of Fire

It’s something to be a person of integrity with good moral standing, a law-abiding citizen, respected by your family members, coworkers and peers. “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold” (Proverbs 22:1) Some men would die to maintain their name, reputation or family reputation.

Faith at Work

Are Christians justified by faith or by works? Is salvation received by faith alone or by good deeds, or both? The theological debate over the question of whether salvation is by faith or by works has caused Christian denominations to disagree for centuries. Differences of opinion are still common among Christians today. Some even say […]

Every four years thousands of athletes from over 200 nations gather in a pre-determined city to compete in the modern summer Olympic Games. Since 1896 with the first modern games held in Athens, the Olympics have caught the wonder and inspiration of billions around the globe. The quintessence of human speed, strength and skill will […]

Are You Hiding Your Faith

One of the best compliments I received was a co-worker refusing my help on her injury-on- duty report. How is this a compliment? She refused my help based on me being a Christian and assuming I would not lie in the report. She was right — I wouldn’t have lied. She chose to have other […]

It’s easy to become discouraged in life. When the car breaks down again, when you’re worn out from work and its only Tuesday, when you’re struggling with the same sin, when people are difficult to work with, when your health is failing, when you continually hear of tragic events in the news, it seems like […]

Shortest Verse . . .  Deepest Meaning!

As I’ve trained student athletes over the years, I have enjoyed asking them for their favorite memory verse. Invariably, the majority of them would be quick to recite from memory the shortest verse in all of sacred Scripture, John 11:35, “Jesus wept.” I find it quite remarkable that our Lord Jesus Christ wept. However, it’s […]

A Picture of Love

  Whether it’s Fathers Day, Mothers Day or any other major holiday, one of the most popular gifts to give to your loved ones is a picture. Kids often draw pictures and others print and frame pictures because pictures have a way of capturing moments of love and communicating deep feelings of love. As people […]

The Lost Art of Bible Meditation

We have lost the great art of Bible meditation today, and we are the poorer for it. In 1987, newsman Ted Koppel gave a classic commencement speech at Duke, in which he famously said that Moses didn’t come down from Mt. Sinai carrying the “Ten Suggestions.” Note what Koppel then said about television and our […]

Evolution Versus Creation – Is it Worth the Fight?

As Christians we are told to always be prepared to give a defense for our faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior. (1 Peter 3:15) This also extends to the truths that are found in the Bible. One of the most “popular” defenses is standing on the conviction that our universe was created by God […]
