    Contributed by Johnny Wilson on Feb 17, 2009

    The shadow of your smile When you are gone Will color all my dreams And light the dawn… The year was 1965. The movie was The Sandpiper. The stars were Elizabeth Taylor as the seductress and the late Richard Burton as the Episcopal priest she seduced. The sentiment in the song is that our more

    Sulfur Caves In Southern Mexico lies the Cueva de Villa Luz, or Cave of the Lighted House. As you make your way to the cave you walk through a veritable paradise of tropical birds and lush rain forest.

    Contributed by Owen Bourgaize on May 6, 2009

    When I opened my computer I found emails sent to a friend but somehow also sent to me. I inquired as to the reason and was told that a hacker had got into his computer address book and was spewing out messages to all his correspondents. Fortunately it didn’t result in giving my computer a virus. more

    Contributed by Shawn Miller on Jul 6, 2009

    When I was a teenager, I remember my uncle telling me of times when He would go spelunker caves. He loved the thrill of finding new caves and the thought of being somewhere where no one had been. He told me that there were times deep inside some of the caves where you had to crawl on your stomach more

    Contributed by Bobby Scobey on Jul 20, 2009

    In A View from the Zoo, Gary Richmond, a former zoo keeper, has this to say: Raccoons go through a glandular change at about 24 months. After that they often attack their owners. Since a 30-pound raccoon can be equal to a 100-pound dog in a scrap, I felt compelled to mention the change coming to more

    Contributed by Sermoncentral on Oct 28, 2009

    The Country of the Blind by H.G. Wells DON’T BE LIKE THOSE WHO WON’T SEE. Don’t be like those who don’t want to be confused with the facts, because they think they know it all already. H. G. Wells, who wrote The War of the Worlds, once wrote a short story called The Country of the Blind. more

  • Nip Sin In The Bud

    Contributed by Michael Mccartney on Mar 15, 2010

    Contributed by Sermoncentral on Apr 28, 2010

    Burmese Parable About a Banyan Tree Seed Don’t pitch your tents near sin or soon you will be living in it. I have heard stories of people who have been hooked by a variety of addictions. They almost always start by just an ‘innocent’ act that did not seem like much at the time. Gamblers who more

  • The Big Lie And Decoder Rings

    Contributed by Andy Grossman on Mar 9, 2011

    THE BIG LIE AND DECODER RINGS Here's the "Big Lie": You can sin and not die. We hear it all the time. The world trivializes sin. Much of the church trivializes sin. I have heard some pretty elaborate theories on how to sin and get away with it. Have you heard the one that God looks more

    THE LION KING: JESUS' CHURCH Disney's movie "The Lion King" features a young lion named Simba who is destined to rule the jungle but finds himself "on the outs."

    Contributed by Tom Papez on Aug 6, 2011

    Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary: It is not every man who suffers, that is blessed; but he who with patience and constancy goes through all difficulties in the way of duty. Afflictions cannot make us miserable, if it be not our own fault. The tried Christian shall be a crowned one. The crown of more

    THE GRADUAL ROAD TO HELL In C.S. Lewis’ book The Screwtape Letters, we read the story of an older demon counseling a younger demon. At one point in the book, we read these words: "You will say that these are very small sins, and doubtless, like all young tempters, you are anxious to be able more

    TASTE IS ALL WRONG I remember one of the stories from the Chronicles of Narnia from the book "The Last Battle." It was the story of a number of dwarfs who just didn't believe in Aslan (who represented Jesus Christ in all the books). They were blind to reality refusing to be "taken in" by those more

    THE PROMISE OF A FLAT-SCREEN Reminds me of a 42-year-old woman from South Bend, Indiana. She called the police after being sold what she thought was a flat-screen TV. She was approached by a man who offered her a great deal on the TV, a new flat-screen TV for only $500 dollars. She admitted more

    based on 2 ratings

    THE WORLD'S ACCENT When I was a boy, my Arkansas cousins moved to California for two years. When they moved back, they talked funny. Just living in California for two years influenced how they said "You guys" and how often they said it. I prefer "Y'all" to "You guys" any day. My cousins promised more

    INVITATION TO DRINK POISON David Timms said: "Skeptics, atheists, cynics, and unbelievers often cast Christianity as a legalistic burden, a lifestyle of bondage or a crutch for the weak to lean on. Well, perhaps it's time for those same voices to look around and see the fruit of more
