My testimony

  I love hearing or reading people’s testimonies about how they came to faith in Christ. Especially when it involves kicking and screaming, like C.S. Lewis’s. Or a skeptical but determined investigation, like… Continue reading

An inheritance

I’m picturing a scene…one that’s surely played out regularly all over the country. Family members of a recently departed loved one are gathered in a lawyer’s office, in various emotional states, to hear… Continue reading

Confident hope

Oh, the frenzy on the Ellen show this time of year. I’ll bet tickets for her 12 Days of Giveaways 2015 are already sold out. You snag one of those and not only… Continue reading

Inconsistency is not insincerity

So yesterday Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the Democrats in Washington are “going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation.” (Which, of course, wasn’t legislation but a Supreme Court ruling.) Does… Continue reading

It’s (past) time to have a national conversation about faith, truth, and eternity

I want to talk about Islam. I acknowledge but don’t want to discuss the presence in this country and others of peaceful, law-abiding Muslims. They do exist, I know. But the more important… Continue reading
