God’s Plans For You

          Precisely what—if anything—did Jesus of Nazareth accomplish by means of his birth, his life on earth, his tortuous death on the cross, his resurrection, and his return to heaven some 2,000 years ago? Coupled with that question is this: What are God’s ultimate plans and purposes for his entire creation? ForContinue reading “God’s Plans For You”

God’s Will For You

          Don’t misunderstand the title of this teaching! I don’t presume to have the faintest clue about God’s will for you in the day-to-day events of your life. If I claim I do, that’s presumptuous and foolish of me! In fact, don’t let anyone else ever presume to know what God’sContinue reading “God’s Will For You”

Water

Water. What a mysterious substance! On one occasion Jesus said: “Those who believe in Me will have rivers of living water flowing out of their innermost being.” He was speaking about the Holy Spirit Who would later come to reside permanently in his followers. (John 7: 37 – 39) There’s an interesting principle found throughoutContinue reading “Water”

O Christmas Tree

I suggest you first sing the song, “Oh, Christmas Tree,” and then read this teaching aloud during your Christmas season. You might even want to consider reading a portion of it each day for a few days every year as part of your annual Christmas celebrations at home or church. Make it a tradition—much likeContinue reading “O Christmas Tree”

And, I willContinue reading “Christian Teacher”

During my childhood years, my family lived in one of the three “Atomic Bomb Cities” in the United States during World War II. It was a lazy summer afternoon in one of those cities, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. I was 5 or 6 years old, digging a hole in our back yard with a little shovel,Continue reading “Shang Ti and Sinim”

Creating My Future

Initially, I taught this material for about 10 years as “Increasing Human Effectiveness,” a secular workshop of 80 hours during a two week period. My students were mostly Department of Defense military and civilian employees. I taught the material throughout the United States in many places and in many situations ranging from Army foxholes toContinue reading “Creating My Future”
