I believe a society is best measured by its heroes. In our society the label of hero is most often assigned to those who exert violent force against perceived evil. This concept of heroism eclipses all others by a very wide margin.

It is interesting how our concept of a prisoner is so two sided. On the one hand we view those who we think have been properly condemned for a crime as an unredeemable miscreant who justly deserves to be scorned and incarcerated. On the other hand, we see others prisoners as people who were …

My wife, Barbara and I had recently married and were living in Palm Desert, California.  The year was 1974, and the season was early fall, when we met a very special man.  Barbara and I had found a wonderful church to attend that seemed to be overflowing with the love of the Lord.  Every tim…

I’m writing this parchment of writ on the eve of my 71st birthday.  Being 71 years old and being in the ministry for almost 42 years, for sure I just might have learned a few important things about life.

The burning religious issue today is not whether God's favor includes everyone but rather how we can enjoy the benefits of that favor. How does one obtain peace and joy as God intended, be it for the few or the many? When the angels declared peace on earth at Christ's birth, what did that me…
