Find a Storm Shelter!

Posted on July 9th, 2017

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote: “Into each life some rain must fall.” Rain may fall gently at times, however, it also falls furiously in times of storm. In our lives, there are many types of storms — physical, financial, emotional, spiritual, etc. — and they all vary in size and intensity. Storms are the common lot […]

What Does It Matter?

Posted on June 7th, 2015

“It’s nobody else’s business how I live…”   This claim has sure become a popular catch phrase today. You hear it almost every day. It is often said as an excuse for immoral, self-destructive, selfish behavior. Strangely, people don’t say, “It’s nobody else’s business how I live” when they are generous, righteous, and helpful.   […]

Life Draining Vampires

Posted on July 21st, 2014

Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” (Eph. 5:15-16). Let’s face it, life is far and away too short to allow one’s self to fritter away time and energy on people who will slurp the very life blood […]

Posted on June 3rd, 2014

  Seven Reasons Why Christians Do Not Get the Most Out of Bible Study Berry Kercheville Bible study is foundational for our spiritual health.

Why Are There Four Gospel Accounts?

Posted on May 30th, 2013

We have Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – four accounts of the life of Christ. But why wouldn’t just one suffice? Why are there four? 1. Multiple eyewitnesses Christianity is a faith based on historical facts, and God has given us valuable eyewitness testimony on which to base our faith (cf. Acts 2:32; 10:40-41). One […]

Membership in a Local Church

Posted on April 24th, 2013

You became a member of the church that belongs to Christ when you were baptized into Christ (Gal. 3:26-27). The Lord added you to the number of His followers, metaphorically assembled, when you became obedient to the faith (Acts 2:36-41, 47). As a member of the body of Christ (Eph. 1:22-23) you accepted certain obligations: […]

The Experience Driven Church

Posted on February 5th, 2013

I stumbled across a blog post entitled, “Why are Churches of Christ Shrinking?” The author’s premise is that congregations of the church of Christ are shrinking because they fail to recognize our shift in culture. “Younger generations,”  he says, “come into our worship services looking for an experience. And what do they get? A lecture. Information.” The […]

My Response to President Obama

Posted on January 24th, 2013

Monday was a historical day.  On MLK day our first black President was sworn into office for a second term.  But there was something else.  For the first time in an Inaugural speech, a President used the word “gay” to address sexual orientation and promote same-sex marriage.   President Obama  also invoked “Stonewall” a gay bar […]

Posted on December 30th, 2012

This speech was broadcast by legendary ABC Radio commentator Paul Harvey on April 3, 1965: If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths […]
