Much like many of my generation, as a child, my mother use to repeat the phrase "two wrongs don't make a right". Obviously as a child, I really didn't grasp the depth or even the full application of this phrase. Yet today, if we just look at the news, we see the most glaring illustration … Continue reading INJUSTICE FOR INJUSTICE?
I was privileged to participate in an ordination service for a young man who had recently been called a pastor of a church that had been without a pastor for quite some time. As is boilerplate, the charge was brought centered around the command to "preach the Word" from 2 Timothy 4:1-5. Sadly, you rarely … Continue reading Preach The Word (even through tears)
Have you ever simply felt numb? The kind of numbness that envelops you like the cold depths of a lake as you sink ever-deeper into the cold grip of the waters? Yeah... I now am beginning to understand the concept. For those who may not know - in April, I lost my mother, Judy Harris. … Continue reading Numbness and Psalm 51…
One aspect of the Christian walk that I have often heard people talk about, but I find most professed Christians are sadly unprepared for. Unfortunately, we really don't realize just how real the spiritual war is until we are put to the test. For many, 2020 has been (pardon the term) the "year from hell". … Continue reading Spiritual Warfare is Real – and NOW
This year is on course to be the most insane year in American history. From a pandemic exposing the indoctrination culture that is willing to give up essential liberties for an imagined degree of "safety", to the current explosion superficially focused on "race" and #BlackLivesMatter - we as a nation have collectively lost our minds. … Continue reading Don’t Erase Our History

Humanity - all of us - were created in the Image of God (Imago Dei). We all have marred that image by sin - the fundamental problem of the world. Every last one of us bears that disease. For some, it is demonstrated in fornication or other sexual immoralities, for some - covetousness and stealing. … Continue reading Image of God, Sinners, and the Only Answer
Brethren - there is NEVER an appropriate time or circumstance to force meaning or personal views onto Scripture. It is never appropriate, regardless of your intentions, to pluck Scripture out of its context, then bend it back double to paint a picture or prove a point to "reach a hurting person". The formal term for … Continue reading Please Stop Abusing Scripture
Judy Elaine Harris peacefully transitioned to her eternal rest...
Now that I have your attention... time for a bit of a rant. I see post after post from my age and older people slamming "young people" for being out in droves, not practicing "social distancing", for going shopping, etc... Who themselves KNOW about this how? Because THEY are out shopping? But even more interesting … Continue reading Quit Being a Selfish Jerk
