Religion, Politics, and the Choice of a Nation

Americans live in the greatest country in the world.  As a believer in Christ - a Christian, and as one who has had the privilege of modest travels abroad, I wholeheartedly believe in the truth of that statement. Not because this nation is Christian; it is not.  While many of our founders were Christian, ours is a secular nation founded on freedom from oppressive government, specifically from the financial fleecing of its people in the form of irresponsible taxation, and from an elitist ruling class deciding for everyone which religious beliefs are legal and reasonable.  In my opinion, our current government is on the verge of both.   Some would argue that those of us who hold strong spiritual beliefs should not bring those beliefs into the public arena. They would argue that the separation of church and state provides a clear divide ...

Running After God's Heart - Forgiveness

When someone mentions the word forgiveness, how does that make you feel? Do you feel your heart sink?  Does dread fill your consciousness as the scent of a relationship gone sour floods your mind?  Or, are you suddenly conscious of relationships that have been healed because of the bravery of one person?  One thing is certain.  If you are human, someone has probably hurt you at some point in your life.  For some of us memories of abuse and pain are a daily encounter that will simply not leave.  At some point we will realize that time does not, in fact, heal ...

The Power of the Gospel

The Lord has been challenging me lately with this one question, "Do you believe in the power of the gospel?"  To which I immediately reply, "Yes!"  But I know deep in my heart that that is only partially true.  Now I know what you are thinking, how can the pastor not believe in the power of the gospel?  I do believe that there is power available to heal, deliver, transform and turn the world right side up.  But I would be lying if I said that there are not days when the things I see, hear, experience and come face to face with do not challenge that truth.  Yes! it is absolutely true that the power of the gospel is ...

The Grace Window

Our nation is in one of the greatest battles in her existence.  We have survived the revolution, the civil war and other world conflicts over the years.  Each one has demonstrated the strength of commitment to a cause and the innate desire for freedom.  This not a commentary on the pros and cons of war, but we are currently engaged in one whether we want to be or not.  You and I were put on the planet for such a time as this, because you and I have the opportunity to win another battle for freedom.

In 1990 a man named Luis Bush began a movement to pray for the 10/40 window.  This is the area of the world that is known to great socioeconomic challenges and the least amount of Christian influence.  There are more distinctly non-christian religions that are practiced in that part of the globe than in any other. So, that region became ...

Got a Question for You

Have you ever asked God questions?  I believe He actually loves answering questions.  Conversations are constructed out of questions and answers.  Have you ever had lunch with someone and felt like the conversation was work?  You know, you ask a question and get a “yes” or “no” answer.  Sometimes, we would prefer God to answer us in a simple “yes” or “no” but instead He often answers our questions with a question.  Why would He do that to us?  Because you are the object of His greatest affection and He wants to spend more time with you than would be involved if He just said, “yes” or “no” and He is not interested in just giving us orders or directing us as one of His loyal subjects ...
