I was slow to embrace this new trend. How could the Holy Bible be traded in for an electronic device? […]Read More God’s Gone High Tech!
There’s a joke about a woman who prayed every day to win the lottery. One day while praying hard and telling God how she’s at the end of her financial rope, a voice was heard from Heaven, “Work with me here, first buy a lottery ticket!” That’s the mentality of many of us Christians, myself […]Read More Say A Prayer Then Do Something
I unfortunately overhead one of the most asinine things I’ve heard in a long time, on the radio while driving to work a few days ago.

Have you ever felt that some things are not worth bothering God about?

Do you whisper God’s name out loud? It’s an oxymoron, I know. But yes, we do! I do and maybe you do too. At my last job, a Christian woman working adjacent to me listened to the local Christian radio station on her radio but it was turned down so low I was certain she […]Read More Let’s Talk About Jesus But Quietly Please Or They Might Hear Us
