Thunderous Applause Over Murdering Children—Will it Happen Again?
A few years ago, I wrote an article with a similar title when the so-called Reproductive Health Act passed with thunderous applause in the New York State Senate chamber. I could not believe what I was reading: people actually applauded the slaughtering of children! Was I having a dream . . . a nightmare? Was […]
The Five Sure Signs of a Dying Church
Church is boring for most because the power of God has vanished from many congregations…there is a lack of desire to pursue Him in the pulpit as well as in the pew. Like Samson, they “know not that the Spirit of the Lord has departed” (cf. Judge 16:20). High attendance is not the gauge of […]
Should We Celebrate Halloween—Can We Redeem the Theme?

The Bible is clear that God blesses His people. But it’s […]
Want to Fast but you Don’t Know Where to Begin?
Do you want to fast but don’t know where to start? You’re not alone. Consider intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting is not a fad; it aligns with how God designed us for seasons of feast and seasons of famine using fat as fuel during famine. Intermittent fasting provides a much-needed break from food, and it’s a […]
