“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 iphone spy app Anyone who has had to do so knows that standing watch is pretty difficult. It's not that standing around is hard. Staying alert is hard when the time drags […]

I’m fairly offended at the idea that the US Constitution is a living document. Those who advocate that position love to argue, “Do you want to live under the guidance of a dead document?” This misses the point. The document isn’t dead, it is sufficient. It has everything we need including rules by which we […]

My son is a big fan of music. Over the past year or two, he’s become a connoisseur. He’s primarily a fan of rock and alternative music, but he doesn’t limit himself by time period. He’s just as big a fan of songs from the sixties and seventies as he is of music released last […]

There are those who want to believe that a loving God will allow all of us to go to Heaven. They argue that He loves us too much to allow us to suffer in any way. This is Universalism. There are those willing to stipulate that the saved go to Heaven and the unsaved will […]

You've seen the football games where each team turns the ball over more than a few times, where the defense is making glaring mistakes, where the offense can't seem to get a first down, and where it generally seems everyone is discombobulated. And, yet, when the […]

I don't want to butt into his life. I've got enough grief to worry about on my own. It's not my problem. How many of these excuses have you used to justify your avoidance of offering help? I know when I drive by a stalled car on the side of the road, I'm really hoping […]

I sat in a waiting room last night listening to the other folks trying to kill time, too. I couldn’t help but overhear two middle-aged guys passing time the only way you’d expect: by telling stories.
