Diary of a Dead Man
October 24, 2016 - Witnessing Tools
I died on March 14th, 1999. It was a Sunday and I was just two months shy of my 49th birthday. I grew up in a small town, with normal people. Nothing ‘fantastical’ ever really happened to me. I was ordinary, unknown, and just part of the anonymous unwashed-masses residing in flyover-country USA. I thought I had lived a good life. I wasn’t a “saint,” but I wasn’t “evil” either, doing what I thought evil people did; like killing, raping or robbing people. I went to church most weeks. I worked hard at a good job, took care of my family and paid my taxes on time.
A Rattling Church

A recent Gatestone Institute article by Giulio Meotti has dire warnings for German Christians. In fact the slow death of Christianity in Germany has far-reaching ramifications. The first two bullet points neatly sum up the situation:
God Deposes Kings and Raises Up Others

I was riding down the highway last Friday, listening to the Herman Cain Show on talk-radio, when a caller said God had spoken to him about the upcoming national election in the United States. Hillary Clinton will be the winner.
The Lesser of Two Evils
October 17, 2016 - Perspective on the News
It would seem that with each passing election cycle, true born-again evangelical Christians are being forced to make further and broader conciliations about who we will accept as the next president. This has popularly been framed as having to choose between the lesser of two evils. Will this continual acquiescence to having to choose between two, less-than-stellar candidates finally lower our threshold of what we understand as righteousness? In keeping with the doctrine of demons and the duplicitous nature of our enemy, Satan, I believe that the question itself has been high-jacked, and purposely so.

The Tin-Foil Hat Brigade
October 10, 2016 - Commentary on the News
You know who you are. You’re the person other people tip toe around when it comes to discussing current events or religion. You are the person who can spend hours devouring scripture or news with equal vigor, pointing out ‘last days’ events to anyone who would listen to you. You are semi-shunned at church. You are disinvited from church socials, because you are just too intense and narrow-minded. You’re called a ‘conspiracy theorist’ or a ‘Jesus Freak’ behind your back. You’re always going on about the Lord’s return and that “Rapture thingy”. Admit it. You are one of them, one of those “prophecy nuts”.

A God Big Enough to Believe In?
October 05, 2016 - Witnessing Tools
The interaction between Moses and God in the wilderness is a seminal moment in human relationship to their Creator. It’s the first time since the Eden apocalypse that God has personally introduced Himself to any members of the human race. What He delivers as His bio is short, but instructive. Because it doesn’t give humanity any room for reimagining.
