SEPTEMBER 16 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” — Genesis 1:1

Testimony of a Former Evolutionist

If we get the subject of origins (creation-evolution) wrong, what else do we miss? Nonetheless, the assumption of so many today is that science has somehow disproved God. Consider the testimony of the late Dr. Dick Lumsden, biology professor and former dean of Tulane Graduate School. Dr. Lumsden dogmatically taught evolution to his classes until one day a student politely asked him a number of pointed questions. She asked him questions such... More
SEPTEMBER 15 “He who was seated on the throne said, ‘Look! I am making all things new.’” — Revelation 21:5

Transformed Lives

In the 19th century, in Britain, there was a skeptic who said to a converted drunkard, “Surely you don’t believe those Bible miracles, such as Christ turning water into wine.” The ex-drunkard replied, “If you think that’s a miracle, come to my home and I’ll show you how Christ changed beer into carpets, chairs and even a piano.” Christ had come to dwell in the heart of that converted drunkard and...

SEPTEMBER 14 “Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother who walks in idleness and not according to the tradition that he received from us.” — 2 Thessalonians 3:6

Taking from the Government

After trillions and trillions of dollars in wealth transfers, was the result that there is not a single poor person left in this country? Would that that were so! The result was that millions of people who could work are no longer working. Millions of Americans are receiving food stamps. Americans and Christians need to realize that there is no morality in the government’s coming with a gun and taking money from you and giving it to... More
SEPTEMBER 13 “…This is what the LORD has said, ‘Tomorrow is the Sabbath, a holy Sabbath to the LORD. Bake that which you will bake today, and boil that which you will boil, and all that which remains over lay up for yourselves to be kept until the morning.’” — Exodus 16:23

Manna and the Sabbath

In the days of Moses, when His people were wandering in the wilderness, God provided for them daily bread in the form of manna. On the day before the Sabbath, however, they were to gather enough for two days. Then next day, on the Sabbath day, there was none on the ground. If the manna was left overnight on any of the other days, it would have worms and stink, but on that seventh day it would not corrupt or gather worms, and it would be good... More
SEPTEMBER 12 “Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep—so will your poverty come upon you like a stalker, and your need as an armed man.” — Proverbs 6:10-11

The Bible and Laziness

Proverbs contrasts the diligent one who will succeed with the sluggard who will fail. By a person’s diligence, his indefatigable keeping at his tasks, his lack of slothfulness, his rising early, and his attending to the minute details of his affairs, he gains for himself and for his family wealth. The one who deals with a slack hand, one who by design is lazy, will not have what he needs. Now there are those that might look at some... More
SEPTEMBER 11 “Yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he is offering a service to God.” — John 16:2

Do Christians and Muslims Worship the Same God?

Religion-wise, the greatest competitor to Christianity for hearts and souls for all eternity is Islam. Some people like to say we all worship the same God, just with different names. How naïve they are. Islam has been violent for the bulk of its fourteen-centuries-long existence. From the very beginning, Islam gained much of its territory by wielding the sword. By about 1000 A.D. half of what had been Christendom was conquered by... More
SEPTEMBER 10 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how shall it be made salty? It is from then on good for nothing but to be thrown out and to be trampled underfoot by men.” — Matthew 5:13

The Church and Society

The church needs to awaken after many decades of lethargy and sleep. When this happens, I believe we will see many of the most unfortunate and godless decisions that have been made in this country in the past few decades reversed, and America will be restored again to a godliness—the kind of godliness that made us great. This isn’t going to happen overnight. Christians need to have far more influence in public elections. I... More
