Death on the cross is still used as the foundation of describing the most intense pain imaginable as “excruciating” I. Political, Religious and Cultural Climate It is important to understand the climate surrounding the events of Jesus death. A richer grasp of His sacrifice is possible through the knowledge of what was occurring in the political and religious communities at the time. A. Political It is hard to separate the political from the religious during this time in Israel’s history because it appears very little if any true worship was occurring. Following the conquering of Palestine […]

Question:My daughter confessed to her boyfriend something that happened two years ago. He has tortured her for a week with hateful emails and telling her she gets what she deserves and their relationship has been a lie. He said she needs to own up to it even though she has begged his forgiveness. He is dragging her on by saying that he has to think about it and for her to return a promise ring he gave her. The confession was a kiss….nothing else. What can she say to him to make him forgive her and move on? Answer:Well, I hope by “move on” you mean for him to move on out of her life, at least for now. I don’t know the ages involved, […]

(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”… do you think about that alot? Does His name captivate you? Do you daydream, imagine and wonder about it? Do you long for the day when the you will come face to face with The Name? Does your life turn you to that Name? Or does your life crowd out His name?So far we’ve learned that the Name of Jesus Christ is:The Rarest […]
(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) 2Timothy 2.11-13 This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. (NKJV)For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. Choose death to get life.How foolish and strange our beliefs must appear to the world (1Cor 2.14). If we did not have the Bible, we could still get pretty close to what God requires simply by inverting the world’s wisdom.God uses the lowly, not the mighty. If we want to receive, we give away. […]
Someone sent me one of those emails full of interesting photos. As I viewed these, it dawned on me that I could use them to teach some valuable lessons about parenting. Feel free to comment with your experience and observations too. It’s time we got serious about parenting in this country: For parents who like to pretend that no one else can hear their little angel throwing a tantrum in public, the new and improved “sound dampening plastic bag” can show you are concerned about not disrupting those around you, and as you can see, also doubles as a both an umbrella and rain gear on those watery motorcycle trips with your preschooler. The lawyers still suggest you put the “danger: child hazard” warning labels […]
God bless Colt McCoy! I was thrilled at Colt McCoy’s comments after the national championship game. Asked about how bad he felt for missing the game due to injury he said “God is in control. I don’t question what happens. I accept it as His will.” (paraphrase) Would that all Christians show the spiritual maturity this young man displayed in the face of tremendous disappointment. He played his entire college career to reach the national championship in his last collegiate contest, only to be injured in the 1st quarter. In contrast, the other team just talked about how good they were and how much they deserved the victory for all they did. The difference in spirituality and worldview was extraordinarily opposite. Christian Hymn Desecrated I […]
