“Healing Power of Forgiveness” Now in Spanish

June 29, 2011

The Spanish translation of The Healing Power of Forgiveness has just been released. Here is how the publisher describes the book:Few Christians realize nearly every problem in life stems from an unwillingness to forgive someone. When we hold grudges, seek retribution, and blame others, we end up hurting our relationships with God and people&mdas...

B.C. Gets It Exactly Right

June 25, 2011

“In the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ’coming’ he promised?” (2 Peter 3:3-4).Scoffers have always been with us.The easiest argument against a miracle is always, “Nothing like that has ever happened before, therefore nothing like that can ...

Chicago, Here We Come

June 24, 2011

It’s a quick trip this time.This morning Marlene and I are flying to Chicago for a Keep Believing board meeting. We fly in today, meet with the board tomorrow, and then fly back on Sunday. More than once we’ve driven up for a board meeting. But as much as I enjoy a long road trip, driving 625 miles on Friday and doing it again on S...

A Dad Who Did It Right

June 17, 2011

The assignment seemed simple. Find a biblical father who did it right. Sounds simple but it isn’t because the Bible doesn’t tell us everything we’d like to know. For most of the men of the Bible we’d have to say, “We don’t know whether they were good fathers or not.”But if one criteria of good fatherhood is…

Praying Through the Alphabet

June 16, 2011

Have you ever tried to pray through the alphabet?You do it by praying through a list of friends and loved ones, starting with the “A” names, then the “B” names, and on through the alphabet, taking a different letter each day. We got the idea from Peter Faulkner who used Facebook to keep us posted as he did that recently.&nbs...

Eight Marks of Stiff-Necked People

June 15, 2011

“I have seen these people,” the LORD said to Moses, “and they are a stiff-necked people” (Exodus 32:9).Stiff-necked people.That’s not a compliment. Here are some synonyms: obstinate, stubborn, willful, pig-headed. When Stephen preached in Acts 7, he called the Jewish leaders “stiff=necked, uncircumcised in h...

Don’t Do That!

June 13, 2011

Here is the most obvious lesson from the Anthony Weiner debacle:Don’t do that!Simple and clear.The Bible tells us to “flee youthful lusts” (2 Timothy 2:22). If you want an example of what that means, check out what the congressman did, and then flee from that. He was stupid, sinful, foolish, arrogant, and filled with wrong de...

Where Do You Stand With the Lord?

June 7, 2011

Here’s a fragment from a sermon I preached a few years ago. When I happened to run across it today, I decided to pass it along. Perhaps God will use it to awaken some who trust in their religion but not in Christ. Let me ask you, where do you stand with the Lord? Are you on the outside or the inside? Perhaps it is now clear to you that you ne...

Climbing the Family Tree

June 4, 2011

This weekend we’re attending a Pritchard Family Reunion in Oxford, Mississippi. We did the same thing last year with a somewhat larger attendance. This year it was mostly the cousins who are now all in the 55-65 age range. We were joined by our Uncle Russ and Aunt Mary, both over 90 years old.My cousin Barbara has spent many hours (hundreds, ...
