A Pastor’s Fiery Response to Mitt Romney’s “America is in Denial”

A recent article by Mitt Romney titled America is in Denial caught my eye when a news group boldly proclaimed, “Romney Warns Nation at Risk.” Romney opened with: “Even as we watch the reservoirs and lakes of the West go dry, we keep watering our lawns, soaking our...

How Does God Lead Us?

Whether it is the Spirit leading or forbidding in the book of Acts, or the Spirit leading throughout Christian history, it’s clear that the leading of the Spirit is important.  In the Old Testament, it appears that the Spirit of God could be withdrawn completely from...

Roe v. Wade: 4 Biblical Ways to Handle the Insanity in our Country

As our prayers go out to the families in Texas, I just read an article where the FBI reported that there were 61 active shooter incidents reported in 2021, which is a 52% jump from 2020. If we compare this since Columbine, the trend is alarming.   What in the...
