Ecclesiastes 2:17 Therefore I hated life because the work that was done under the sun was distressing to me, for all is vanity and grasping for the wind. (NKJV)In other words, what’s the use? Have you ever felt that way? Have you ever got to that point in your life where you just truly feel like “why bother?”Life, apart from God, will certainly leave you feeling that way. There is no security or peace in money, jobs or relationships. You can lose your health, job, money, family or possessions in the snap of finger.No matter how diligent, talented or successful you are, in 30 seconds disaster could take it all away. Your house could burn down. You could become disabled or disfigured in a car […]

Hosmer, MS, AMI Jesus of Nazareth underwent Jewish and Roman trials was flogged and was sentenced to death by crucifixion. The scourging produced deep stripelike lacerations and appreciable blood loss and it probably set the stage for hypovolemic shock as evidenced by the fact that Jesus was too weakened to carry the crossbar (patibulum) to Golgotha. At the site of crucifixion his wrists were nailed to the patibulum and after the patibulum was lifted onto the upright post (stipes) his feet were nailed to the stipes. The major pathophysiologic effect of crucifixion was an interference with normal […]
Question:Does the Bible ever comment on Adam and Eve having a female child? Answer:Yes, I believe it does.Genesis 4:16-17 Then Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son—Enoch. (NKJV)Where did Cain’s wife come from? This is a common objection by anti-Genesis folks who believe this “proves” the Bible is wrong. Why? Because the Bible says Adam and Eve were the first people, so how could their son Cain find a wife?See!!! The Bible is wrong! Told you so!This question about Cain is often […]
Acts 4:12 – Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (NKJV; emphasis mine)For those of you who have read my stuff for very long, you will know that it is only on a rare occasion I address specific people by name. It has come to a point where it is time for Christians to start addressing the religion of Oprah Winfrey by name.Far from simply being a television celebrity who does interviews of other celebrities, or even a feel-good promoter of moralism (being good is the road to salvation), Oprah now openly engages in evangelizing people into her ear tickling, wishy-washy new age mumbo-jumbo. She is using her […]
(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Philippians 2:10-11 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (NKJV)“Jesus… the sweetest name I know”… yes, the sweetest. Not sweet, or sweeter – the sweetest. Even that is an understatement. The name of Jesus so far surpasses any other man’s name, that we can’t even invent a new word to accurately describe it.So far we’ve learned that the Name of Jesus Christ is:The Rarest and Most Exclusive – there is salvation through Jesus and NO other (Acts 4.12); […]
A reader asks: How to raise boys… we have 7, 8 and 9 year old boys, adopted, with the two youngest were adopted 4 years ago internationally. After 4 years I would think that they would have understand the rules of the household (i.e. don’t hit your brother) and what seems to be to be common sense things (don’t Febreeze the cat, don’t run top speed into the wall on purpose). All 3 boys act this way, our oldest models them (he’s special needs, so it was expected). I can’t even trust them to go into the kitchen to get a snack without somebody destroying something or making a huge mess getting into something they know they shouldn’t be into. My friends’ kids the same […]

Question:I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, and mind. The problem is that I can’t seem to feel compassion anymore for what He went through for us. He was tortured beyond believe for us. When I used to think about this tears would flow freely. Now it’s like there are no feelings, only indifference. Can you help? Answer:What you are experiencing is not uncommon. As life digs at us, robs us, and disappoints us, we become desensitized (loss of deep heart feeling).As our hopes are unrealized, tragedies buffet us and people let us down, we become desensitized. As are dreams fade, our health wanes and pain frequents us, we become desensitized.As the years go by, and pretty much all we are concerned with […]
