A School Shooting Prayer From 100 Years Before There Were School Shootings

From Charles Spurgeon, English pastor (1834-1892): And now that we have Your ear, we pray for this poor world in which we live. We are often horrified by it. Lord, for our own comfort, we wish that we did not know anything about it. We have said, 'Oh, for a cabin in some wilderness.' We... Continue Reading →


30 Seconds On the Kingdom

And he said to them, 'Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket, or under a bed, and not on a stand? For nothing is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.' And he said... Continue Reading →

How I Apologize to My Kids

*There seems to have been some interest in these practical family and parenting posts.  I do not write as an expert in anything.  This is simply one sinner saved by grace explaining his best approach to those awful 5 minutes after slamming a door or yelling at his children, when he realizes he behaved like...

This Great Revolution

The greatest revolution in history is the revolt of the Kingdom of Jesus against the ruler of this dark air, against the principalities of self-love and pride and idolatry and greed that have set themselves up as "kings" in this world.   The greatest revolt of all time is the one eternal light is mounting...

Turn And Be Blessed

Acts 3:26 Strapped for time today, so allow me to get directly to my point.... Continue Reading →

Long, Long Shadows and A Light

Sentences (Again)

   A month or so ago I wrote a post simply made up of theological sentences that I held to and believed.  The idea was based (ridiculously loosely) on Peter Abelard's classic Medieval theological textbook Sentences.  It was I think, the most read post I've ever had, so I figured I'd re-gift it.   Here are a...

Election Day

   I wrote this 4 years ago.  Thanks, Facebook memories : ) I am genuinely pleading now: please stop placing so much hope in human beings who run countries. No king will save souls. No president will heal hearts. No prime minister will stop sin. These men, especially if they aren't believers and work without... Continue Reading →

Political Woes

   I believe it's good for a politically-inclined person (like myself) who claims Christ (like myself) to periodically ask himself:   Do I treasure my politics more than Jesus?   Am I more fascinated by the kingdoms of this world than the Kingdom of God? I've had to ask and answer my own conscience, in this... Continue Reading →
