Some good advice

One of the things I remember my father always saying to me was "unloaded guns kill a lot of people." I used to argue with him telling him that it is impossible for an unloaded gun to kill anyone since it was unloaded. He would respond with, "you know what I mean," and I did. For what he was really saying is that guns, which were supposedly empty, killed people because when they presume it so they tend to be more careless about them. I recently was putting a gun back in the cabinet and thought I remembered unloading it ...

‘I thought I saw a snake’

Tweety bird was alarmed every time she saw Sylvester the cat around her cage and said those famous words, "I tot I saw a puttycat." Well the other day as I was taking a 5 mile walk down the road and I suddenly noticed something just off of the pavement that looked like a snake. The color was right and the shape was curved just like a snake crawling across the ground. My first response was to jump away from this sight to get to a place where I could check it out. At a closer look I soon realized ...

Lessons from Vick

In the last few months Michael Vick, the Atlanta Falcons star quarterback, has gone from a sports hero to a distaste in many people's mouths. He had been accused of participating in the horrible sport of dog fighting. At first he denied that he was involved at all but recently has agreed to pleading guilty.

This leads me to my first point; there are many who deny that they have sinned and are in need of help and forgiveness. In the Christian faith this help comes in the form of a Savior, Jesus Christ, who came not only to ...

Lessons from a tattoo

The other day I was in a store and I overheard the cashier talking about her new tattoo. She was so proud of her design which she had created herself. As I looked at that tattoo and another one she had previously had put on, I wondered if some time later in her life she might regret having them put on and might want them removed. As I thought about this I was reminded of the comparisons and contrasts these tattoos had with this thing called sin.

Is there really a place of torments?

Despite what most may think, Jesus taught that hell is a reality, "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal" (Matt. 25:46).

Embracing the love of Christ, part 2

"A soap manufacturer and a [preacher] were walking together down a street in a large city. The soap manufacturer casually said, 'The Gospel you preach hasn't done much good, has it? Just observe. There is still a lot of wickedness in the world, and a lot of wicked people, too!' The [preacher] made no reply until they passed a dirty little child making mud pies in the gutter. Seizing the opportunity, the [preacher] said, 'I see that soap hasn't done much good in the world, for there is much dirt and many dirty people around.' The soap manufacturer ...
