Daily Sacrifice

In May, 1998 I had the kind of day an amateur golfer dreams about. I had traveled from Winchester, Kentucky to Georgetown, Kentucky to play golf at the Longview Golf Course. I did not have anyone with me so I was at the mercy of the starters. Another man and I were put with a couple of guys named Joe who were agitating to say the least. They challenged our cart to a match from the big boys' tees.…

Dangers of the Church Growth Movement Part I

There are many dangers of the church growth movement which are already being felt and some of which will be felt more by succeeding generations. This article hopes to analyze the underlying philosophies of the church growth movement and then show how these beliefs are in direct contradiction to Scripture. It will become readily apparent as to how great a deception this movement is and…

Dangers of the Church Growth Movement Part II

False belief #5

Man is the center of attention and the architect of his success.

God is horribly dishonored by teaching that says that God died for us because we were valuable. The truth is that we had no worth and have no worth apart from the love of God in grace and mercy reaching out toward us. It was while we were yet sinners at enmity with God that He died for us (.…

Dates are Important

First things first. I have to correct a glaring mistake which I made yesterday. I wrote in my column yesterday that my wife and I were married on August 21,1971. Even after what I thought to be a careful proofread I left us getting married on August 21,1971. I was twenty-one years old plus ten days when Becky and I tied the proverbial wedded knot. My birthday is August 10. Thus, I became the…

Day of the Shofar Blast -- Yom Teruah

Rosh Hashannah... Jewish new year... blowing of trumpets... The Gathering... makes me tingle all over.

When I lived in Baton Rouge, I had a delicious opportunity to go to a Messianic Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashannah (Feast of Trumpets). If you ever get a chance to celebrate this you are in for such a wonderful experience.

I had never before heard the Shofar blow. The lights were dim…

Dead in Christ

I had not taken the trip for some time and felt that it was that right time again. It was a beautiful day for January. Sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper sixties. It seemed like the right time to make the trip from my home in Georgetown, Kentucky to my ancestral burial grounds near London, Ohio. My mother and father are buried there along with my father's parents and a brother-in-law.

Dealing With Disaster

When the twin towers fell, my oldest son was almost five years old.

He didn't watch the news unless he happened to be in the room when my husband or I were watching. He was in preschool - they talked about colors and good manners, not current events. Yet he knew something had happened and we felt he deserved an honest explanation.

I explained that some guys who were not very nice flew…

Dean Clark

The last two days have been fun and informative. I had the opportunity to spend Tuesday evening and all day Wednesday at Johnson Bible College near Knoxville, Tennessee. Though I graduated from Kentucky Christian College I also claim Johnson Bible College as my alma mater having spent two years there prior to my enrollment at K.C.C. Being back on campus brought back the proverbial "flood of memories."

Dear God, Please Check Your Answering Machine

Sometimes I can feel like I am leaving my prayers on God's answering machine and waiting for him to check his messages. I start to wonder, "did he listen to it and forget or is it just not as important as someone else's message at the moment?" When I have these thoughts I know that they come from a fearful place deep inside, a place lacking faith and hope.

Ish 50:10 (NIV) Who among you…

Debunking the Status Quo

My sons both have two middle names because we wanted to include more family names than we could fit into the traditional first-middle-last process. I, personally, think it is really cool to have four names, but when I try to fill out paperwork for my children I often have difficulty because they don't fit the status quo.

Most forms that I fill out for anything - school, insurance, sports - have…
