The USA and God

This teaching is about the United States of America (USA).  This is not meant to be a history lesson.  If you’re interested in some true and correct history (instead of false “revisionist history”) about our nation’s founding–and history since its founding, I  recommend two books, both being some pretty good reading:  A Patriot’s History ofContinue reading “The USA and God”

Life Lessons Learned Part Two

As of this year (2022), I’ve been a follower of Jesus for 66 years; I hope I’ve learned—really learned!—some basic Life Lessons to live by during those years.  When a person is first presented with a lesson, teaching, or new information of any sort, if that lesson or information doesn’t filter through one’s thought processesContinue reading “Life Lessons Learned Part Two”

Bible Mysteries Revealed!

No, this will not be like some supermarket tabloid newspaper or magazine displayed near the checkout counter.  It is simply an explanation of how the Bible defines “mystery” and then examines some of the Bible’s main mysteries.  We’re not going to look at mysteries like a detective attempts to solve mysteries.  If you want theContinue reading “Bible Mysteries Revealed!”

Church: Who’s In Charge?

Who is in charge of Jesus’ Church?  That simple question evokes just about as many answers as there are churchgoing people in multitudes of local churches and church denominations around the world.  Is there an answer?  Is there one simple answer?  I believe there is—and I’ll be responding to that question in this teaching. DefinitionsContinue reading “Church: Who’s In Charge?”

Manifesto For The United States of America

(NOTE: Unlike many contemporary “doomsday deceivers” and false prophets prophesying imminent doom for the USA, I wrote this positive manifesto to give hope and promise for a bright future for this “land that I love…”) I solemnly proclaim and declare to all who have ears to hear, eyes to see, and understanding to comprehend thatContinue reading “Manifesto For The United States of America”

Emmanuel…God With You!

Emmanuel… To me, it’s a musical-sounding word that evokes many memories around Christmas time each year.  Emmanuel is a word used often during the Christmas season—in sermons and in music.  It’s a popular name for churches, too; my wife and I attended Emmanuel Church for a few years.  In some areas of the world, parentsContinue reading “Emmanuel…God With You!”

Joy-Full Living

Some people just never seem to have any authentic joy in their lives.  Oh, they might experience happiness, but joy and happiness aren’t the same.  Happiness (or unhappiness) depends on happenings. Joy comes from God Who eternally lives within us. Some people just seem to fret all the time about the negative, “dark” aspects ofContinue reading “Joy-Full Living”

The Killer God

Almost daily I pray, Spirit, lead me into truth without borders.  What does that mean?  For years, I have been praying that God will lead me into his truth about the matter of atrocities in the Bible—not human attempts at truth to explain away the atrocities, cover them up, or deny they happened.  I wantContinue reading “The Killer God”

Eternity In My Heart

The Bible teaches that God has “placed eternity” in the heart of every human being!  That sounds like a nice religious sentiment—even sort of poetic, but what does it really mean?  A good place to begin in answering that question is to define some words and terms:  God, eternity, heart, etc. Here we go…  OfContinue reading “Eternity In My Heart”
