Lessons From A Skunk

skunks are meanWe 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

What you want to do right now & what you’ll wish you’d done tomorrow.

What you want to do now and what you'll wish you did tomorrow.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.

The images are both of flesh, as though Imago Dei is flesh, and yet the Bible consistently refutes that image. Continue reading Imago Dei

When Cain Killed Abel

can killed abel and this envy and hatred has been rampant ever since.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
