We caught another skunk in our barn. Having never lived somewhere where skunks were a problem like they are here I wasn’t sure what to do. Growing up, we had rats and possums, but not skunks. So catching a rat or possum in a live trap, I knew how to deal with it, but a scary skunk? Not so much.
In fact, despite my rural heritage I knew so little about skunks that Continue reading Lessons From A Skunk
This seems like such a simple concept, but it makes and breaks people everyday. The difference between success and failure, joy and shame, wealth and poverty and so many other things lies in the difference between what you want to do now and what you’ll wish you did tomorrow.
Seeking God, praying, and reading scripture are some of the ways we can reconcile tomorrow with today. That process adjusts our priorities and motivates our desires in incredible ways. Continue reading What you want to do right now & what you’ll wish you’d done tomorrow.
“…but for all those people who don’t have a relationship with God that is your relationship, what do they do?” – Whoopi Goldberg
Whoopi seems to think that because people that ignore God are afraid that our faith is a problem. It was a momentary look into the mind of a non-believer and a hint at why faithless people so often find themselves at odds with people of faith. The fact that we are happy and they are not makes them feel like victims. Victims of us. Continue reading Generation Selfie
I would apologize for writing yet another apology for “the Donald” but the hypocrisy of the left will be on full display today. Continue reading Political Apologetics
Imago Dei, the image of God. Michelangelo’s image of God reaching His hand across (not down, not up) to a man – God’s hand no larger and no different than that of the man – has molded much of society’s image of God for centuries. The images are both of flesh, as though Imago Dei is flesh, and yet the Bible consistently refutes that image. Continue reading Imago Dei
It’s the late 1700s and Catherine II, also known as Catherine the Great, rules Russia. She ruled Russia for more than 30 years.
During her reign she oversaw the development of areas of Southern Russia. At this point in history European pacifist Christians were being persecuted Continue reading Come out of her God’s people.
Hillary Clinton is like O.J. Simpson. Everyone knows she’s guilty and everyone knows she got away with it. Some differences include:

Cain killed Abel and this envy and hatred has been rampant ever since.
Last year I wrote an article that touched on the story of Cain and Abel and how it applies to the battle unfolding in modern times. Recent events continue to confirm that side-note from my post last year and merit further elaboration.
It’s no surprise to any believer that the 1st commandment is meaningless to atheists and agnostics alike. Putting God first is a value that is exclusive to believers Continue reading When Cain Killed Abel
Happy Independence Day. This post will serve as a brief indulgence as I geek-out yet again on science. If this isn’t your cup-a-tea please spare yourself the agony, put down your “smart” phone, and get to the yard work and grill scraping. I’ll be right behind you.
Above pictured is Poussin’s rendition of worshiping the golden calf. Look at them celebrate and revel in the self-assurance that comes from having made ones own god with ones own hands. Beware, our 21st century golden-calves are far more offensive and destructive than the one the Israelites erected in the desert. The manufactured and temporary perspective of the above revelers has nothing on what our globalized technological machine has produced for us. Manufactured, because idols are by definition man-made, and temporary because they never live up to their exaggerated billing. Continue reading Perspective
