"Every thinking man, when he thinks, realizes that the teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined with our whole civic and social life that it would be literally impossible for us to figure ourselves what that life would be if these standards were removed. We would lose almost all the

When I think of the book of Ephesians, I think of the story of the woman who woke up one morning and as she saw her husband getting ready to leave for work she said, with a big smile on her face, “Honey, I’ll bet you don’t know what day this is.” Her husband had a hard time remembering birthdays

When I think of risk, I think of the story of Lucinda Williams who was a Missouri woman who moved to Dallas back in the mid-1800’s. When she moved to Dallas, she asked her landlady if there was a Baptist church in town. The landlady said there was no Baptist church in town and she hoped there
When I think of the idea of antichrist, I think of the Pillsbury Doughboy, no not really, I think of Judas. Judas was named as one of Jesus’ disciples, but yet he was really never one of them because he did not stay true to Jesus’ teachings. There is one occasion recorded in John 12 where Jesus

I must admit that I do gravel a lot in thinking about my thoughts. It has been a habit of mine down through the years. Thinking is what really makes life worth living, or so I believe.
My father had a saying whenever he saw me staring off into the distance, “A penny for your

I got my first cup of coffee and slowly moseyed to my front porch. Walking to the banister putting my elbows there I sipped my coffee. I looked around my neighborhood, I kinda live on a small knoll, and it seemed so peaceful. The birds were singing, they were flying around and there was what seemed

WHAT WOULD YOU THINK?
What would you think if I said, "We’ve decided that sometimes, instead of having praise and worship music, we’re going to listen to Marilyn Manson? And sometimes instead of celebrating the Lord’s Supper with bread and juice, we’ll celebrate it with Jack Daniel’s. And why

GOOGLE: THINKING ON A GRAND SCALE
If I were to ask you to pick a number, any number, what number would you choose? (Pause) How many picked a number between 1 and 100? How about 100 and 1,000? Or maybe you picked an even higher number. Anyone pick a number over one million? If you didn’t, why
THINK STEPS, NOT PROGRAMS
In his book, Seven Practices of Effective Ministry, Andy Stanley writes: "Think Steps, Not Programs" (p. 88). The idea is this: Instead of having a strategic vision that focuses on programs, you have a strategic vision of a people-process, a pathway that takes people

There is no substitute for sound, biblical thinking.

A number of people think of Satan as the personification of evil. Like Uncle Sam is the personification of patriotism, the devil is the representation of all evil. Or they think that people are evil and need no one to tempt them. But if they could, just for a moment, have the curtains of this seen

The heroes of this world think not of self. Think of the everyday heroes or rescue workers we hear of these days. They see what needs to be done, or who needs to be saved and they do it before they analyze their role in the matter. It is in that act of forgetting our self, in a constructive way of

Let’s think about that for a moment. In this country, we are living at a time of nearly full-employment. Although interest rates have headed back up some recently, we are still enjoying some of the lowest interest rates our country has seen in decades. When I bought my house in 1990, I was
