“You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.”

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Share on Facebook Pretty clear isn’t it? “You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.” Exodus 22:21 How did this get warped into “Separate their families and throw the children in prison.” Greed and cruelty. Thank Ayn Rand. Thank You Milton Friedman. Thank you Frederick […]

My Brother’s Keeper

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Share on Facebook If you have to ask, you probably already know the answer.  When Cain asked God, “Am I my brother’s keeper?,” he knew the answer.  He knew his jealousy was wrong.  Cain simply wanted more at the expense of his brother.  This is a cautionary tale.  Hurting others to get more often leaves […]

Merry Christmas

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Share on Facebook The commercial Christmas ended at Midnight December 25 as retailers switched to Easter candy.  Believers, however, have had the rest of the Twelve Days of Christmas to reflect.  Christians and non-Christians alike celebrate at the darkest time of the year to remember the light.  It’s no wonder then that light plays an […]

Gifts for Christ or Herod?

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

Share on Facebook Christmas time teaches a lot about our priorities. In my house growing up it was all about the kids. Our families would all gather at my grandmother’s house, later my dad’s, to celebrate. The highlight was the kid’s opening presents. Giving to the “least of these” was the reason for the season. […]

Stop Babeling.

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Share on Facebook I hate article titles like this. There is no doubt that the Babylonians built Towers. The Tower of Babel story, however, is about God and man. It is not about the Babylonians. The Tower of Babel story explains how a universal God became a tribal God. It explains how the rest of […]

Straight Talk About Life Choices

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

Share on Facebook Some straight talk from a friend. I didn’t ID her. Life issues tend to bring out the worst in conservatives from verbal abuse to outright violent threats. Ironic no? When I look at the abortion debate, I think of several things: 1. No woman in the United States has ever been forced […]

So, yelling “murder” makes you feel better?

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

Share on Facebook As a man I will never have the incredible life experience of pregnancy.  As a father I have, however, witnessed the joy, fear and pain of those long nine months.  As we wander farther into the political landscape, I ask you to pause and ask yourself if your rhetoric is making it […]

God is love.

Monday, May 9th, 2016

Share on Facebook       And yet, too many use scripture to condemn the poor, the broken or the “other.” Too many use scripture to justify having and refusing to have mercy on the have nots. If we are made in the image of God, then what image of God do you have? God […]

Pope Francis, the Christian Mission and Being Pro-Life

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Share on Facebook Pope Francis has a fully developed pro-life message to the world’s secular leaders. It is a message about improving and securing all our lives,liberty and happiness but especially the world’s poor. Such a refreshing break from the money changers who have for too long invoked the name of Christ to support greed. […]
