Stay Close

It is discouraging when churches become involved in social activism (a campaign to bring about political or social change). Is this really the calling of a church? And as a church takes on social issues, people will fall away at a time when churches cannot afford to lose members. If this has not occurred at... Continue Reading →

It is Time – Final Writing

These words are not written to draw fear into you; they are written to allow you to let go of your fear. Jesus said faith comes from understanding. Through understanding, our fear will subside, we will be at peace, and only then can a full trust in the Lord come forth. These words are being... Continue Reading →

Truth’s Pathway

I have not posted an article in a long time as I have been struggling. Two articles that were written have created a log jam for me. They are good, they are truthful, but the truth hurts. And so for me it was easier to say nothing, and so I have done nothing over the... Continue Reading →

It is well with my soul

Over the years I have struggled with my belief in Christ. I don’t regret the struggle because it has allowed me to more deeply understand the core of my belief.

Faith Through Understanding

Committing Ourselves to God Committing ourselves to God in a world where so many seem to be giving up on Him is difficult at best. We look around and question ourselves wondering if we are on the wrong side of the fence. We see friends, family members, and acquaintances that don't spend time reflecting on... Continue Reading →

Remaining Strong in Faith

How to repair a faith that has become discouraged. As I was driving to Bible Study one evening, I asked myself the following question: When is my faith in God most likely to be challenged?
