“Take heed that no one deceives you.” -Jesus, Matthew 24:4b Everyone loves a good story of victory over evil. What “Left Behind” brings about is a story of faith, persecution, and victory of those who are faithful to God. You may say that there is nothing wrong with that. You may say that every Christian needs to know that victory will be coming in order to increase their faith. But is there something else that is being left behind in…

“By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.” –Hebrews 11:7 Noah was not a perfect man. However, he was a man that moved when he heard what God wanted him to do and acted according to faith and trust. He was ridiculed by neighbors and mocked by everyone around. Noah could have…

Until I saw what a lack of love actually does to people, I didn’t understand. My mom and dad did not raise me to think bigoted or racist, which I am forever grateful. However, the influence and constant surroundings of where I lived brought on a subconscious that leaned…

There are times when I observe people and the things that they do want to make me shout “Don’t you know that it is not good for you!” And there have been many times that I have needed someone to shout this to me. My wife told me that when I see things I tend to see mainly black and white. Either it is wrong or it isn’t. For the most part I believe that is true, but there are…
