There are two things that are all important when seeking truth in the Bible. First, the Bible is true in every word and was inspired by the Holy Spirit making it His words spoken directly to us. If you can’t start from that position, then the Bible is useless.
This morning I was sorting through some old files, deleting what I could and organizing the rest when I ran across this file. We were living in Butte, Montana at the time and I think I may have originally written it as a letter to the editor of our local paper, The Montana Standard. It is worth posting here and I hope it stirs us to take a good look at our hearts and consider our motivations.
Well, it's finally out there! I finished my new book last Fall, but it's taken this long to get the publishing finished. It's published with two distributors: Ingram Spark (IS) (to take advantage of their massive, worldwide distribution system) and now, finally, Amazon.com. Getting it listed with IS was relatively easy, although, since it was my first time trying out this indie publishing thing, it did take me a while to work through. They have a good system, though. It went well and both the e-book and print versions have been available to retailers
Opponents of Christianity love to promote the idea that the Bible just doesn't match up with what modern science has discovered about our universe.

It's been a long while since I posted here. Really, I have no excuse. However, to rectify that situation I am working on a series of posts dealing with my thoughts concerning the shutdown of the churches in America. I'm not going to start posting that series until I get them all finished, otherwise you would likely get the first few and the end would never come. In the meantime
Below is an excerpt from a paragraph I wrote this morning. As I reviewed it I was struck with how, in this time of crisis, many people need to hear it’s message. So, I’m posting it here for you to read and pass on as you see fit. I hope it speaks to you.
...we learned that Covid19 is getting close to home...the fearfulness and the mad buying frenzies are still foolishness. God is our protector and our provider...We can trust Him!
Why does God pay attention to us when we pray? It doesn't make sense, but He does.
It is common to hear the claim made that there is a conflict between science and what is written in the Bible. Nothing could be further from the truth.............
