How Do We Know…

The question was asked, “How do we know what God said when He was creating the earth and all that’s in it? He was the only one there, so how do we know what He said?” This is a question related to the inspiration of the Bible. Paul wrote to Timothy that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be…

My Favorite Once a Year Post!

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. (I Timothy 1:15 NKJV) I’ve published this same blog posting for the last few years. Each year it gets more precious. Praise the Lord. It was May 3, 1970. In just 24 hours one of this area’s most well-known historical events would occur – the shootings at Kent State University. But on May 3, something…

A Prayer for Everyday

Lord, grant that I may tell to others as long as I live, that thou art a sin-pardoning God! (from The Valley of Vision)

Can you handle the truth?

Winston Churchill said, “Truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but, in the end, there it is.” Pontius Pilate asked, “What is truth?” (John 18:38) And Jesus stood silently before him, not answering the question. But He had already answered it in the previous chapter when He prayed for His disciples, and by extension for you and me, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” (John 17:17) Whatever else we do here at…
