Abortion… Because It Saves Money?

I know that there are readers of this blog from every perspective. I'm as pro-life and conservative as they come. If you're not, I still love you, but I think we can all agree that when rising abortion rates correlate to an economic downturn, it's tragic! The San Francisco Chronicle reports this story about the rising demand for abortion among those who wanted their pregnancies but have lost jobs or otherwise fallen on hard financial times. I cannot stress how tragic this …

Getting To Know Jesus Throughout Eternity

We have, sometimes, the mistaken notion that when we get to heaven, we'll be as God, knowing everything. Not only is this a duplication of Adam and Eve's mistaken theology, it's also quite unbiblical. What will be different there is that the hindrances to learning will have been removed. Listen to the way J. Sidlow Baxter puts it in Going Deeper: Let us try to grasp it: the quintessence of heaven's pure bliss for us will be just this, that with sinless minds, and raptured …

Pastors: Don’t Forget to Sharpen Your Public Speaking Skills

Pastors have a bad habit of forgetting that we are ultimately communicators. We fall into the pattern of preaching and presenting God's Word the way we always have, or the way other preachers always have. That's why we get made fun of! That's also one of the reasons people don't listen to us. In addition to studying God's Word deeply and serving people all week, we also need to become students of the arts of persuasion, communication, and public speaking. If you can't …

We Forgot To Ask for Our Daily Bread

It has been said that a historian is a prophet in reverse. I do believe we can learn from the past, but we don't. I also think that the conditions leading up to the 1929 stock market crash have been increasingly prevalent again today. As of today, about 45% of the world's wealth has been destroyed and now banks from 20 countries are going to meet together to figure out how one world bank might alleviate some of the global banking situation. Our government is looking to spend …
