In this social media/personal opinion driven culture we are in desperate need of truth. (Especially during election years.) “What is truth?”, Pilate asked Jesus. The great theologian, Foghorn Leghorn, used to say, “It’s more confusing than a termite in a yo-yo - which way is up?” Satan is a smooth operator.

So there are no surprises here (in the Times article). A person … Continue reading “Noah”

The name of the 6-minute video: "A Letter from Hell." Having seen my fair share of cheesy videos over … Continue reading A Letter from Hell
My friends, rather than upload a recording of my talk, I thought I'd simply write out my notes in an easy-to-read format for you. (This way, you also don't have to hear me, over and over again, become emotional as I speak 🙂 .....Christ has used this passage so powerfully in my life since the … Continue reading “The Lord Is My Shepherd” – An In-Depth Study of Psalm 23 (Session 1, Vs 1)
