all or nothing

All or Nothing

Sometimes, we extremists are criticized for lack of moderation. We throw ourselves into most things we do that we want to do. When I was a problem and addicted alcoholic, I drank to excess on every occasion. And, once I started the process of binge or session, the end was I often passed out, ended […]

Dying with Jesus

Dying with Jesus

As a new Christian, I was exposed to a number of scripture verses about dying. They talked about dying to self, the old self dying, and being crucified with Christ. Early on, I didn’t know exactly what that meant, but I kept wondering about when, where and how that death occurs. The verse of Galatians […]

Home of Lost Souls

A famous bank robber was asked, “Why to you rob banks?’ He replied, “ Because thats where the money is.’” The same can be said for prisons and evangelism. That is where the lost souls are. It is a slow process for most of us to really come to a point of surrender and admit […]

Fatherless in America

Father to the Fatherless

Probably one-half of the people under forty in this country (US) grew up in a one parent household and chances are that parent was a women. I have seen how difficult it can be for a single mom to raise children while maintaining a semblance of a home and working full time. It is a […]
