Words of Healing “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away” – Jesus (Matt 24:35).


The Husband is Called to Serve His Wife

The Last is First Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your […]


Abortion: Baby or Fetus

Recently (2001) in a college class on the “Psychology of Sex Differences,” my teacher, Dr. Taylor, was talking about “gender-based murder,” such as happenings in India where wives have “accidental deaths,” which are often not investigated by the police, and the husbands go on to remarry and collect another dowry. Another “gender-based murder” that was […]


A White Man’s Tribute to Martin Luther King Jr.

A Dream Martin Luther King Jr. is one of my heroes. I still get shivers down my back when I hear “I have a dream today” (King). He had a voice that reached beyond the color of skin, giving a dream to Black men and White men alike. I’m White, but I can still share […]


Is “Mutual Submission” Biblical?

There is a movement today which teaches that the Bible commands mutual submission between a husband and wife.  The argument states that Ephesians 5:21 commands this mutual submission because it states, “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ” (NIV).  Then, in the following verse, it tells wives, “Wives, submit to your husbands as […]


How Could a Loving God Send People to Hell?

Hell is an interesting concept. It is something that causes much frustration for Christians and non-Christians alike. How could a loving God send people to Hell? But I will ask another question, and that is, how could a loving God force people to worship Him for eternity? Heaven is a place of eternal worship of […]


Of Abortions and Straw Men

On the Woman’s Right to Choose Probably the number one argument that I hear when discussing or debating abortion is that “it should be the woman’s right to choose whether or not to have an abortion.”  Since this is election year, 2000, I have heard it more often than I had previously, and as I […]


Why do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

When faced with the question of whether or not there is a God, or whether or not the Bible is true, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” is, oddly enough, one of the most common questions asked. The assumption behind this questions is: If God is such a loving God, then innocent people […]


Life’s Little Lessons: Ask and Receive?

The other day, my “little” nephew, Willie–as he was over at my house–saw me getting some ice cream for myself. I saw him whisper something in my sister’s ear and then my sister asked me if he could have some ice cream. I was happy to oblige, so I got a bowl and began scooping […]


Is the Bible Relevant to Modern Marriages?

Misperception and Distortion As a post-Christian culture, many people have mistaken traditional perspectives of marriage as Biblically based. The Bible, however, is not as closely linked with American perspectives and traditions as some would think. While the traditional perspective of American culture places women in a subordinate position of less value, the Bible actually empowers […]


I Stand in Awe

I sit here at work, looking at my hand writing, the pen that I use, and thinking about the mind that is organizing it into words. Life is a mystery, a wonder. I stand in awe of any existence at all. Not only do I marvel about “Where I come from,” but of the reality […]
