COVID-19 and Governor Cuomo

Screen-Shot-2020-04-15-at-6.04.50-PM

COVID-19 has done some serious damage to New York City. And it has done some serious damage in many other states and cities across the nation and world. Whatever our politics or religious beliefs, or lack thereof, we must all at least be willing to admit a sense of sadness at tens of thousands of deaths (unless you are pro-abortion, which would be the height of hypocrisy, ...

Reflect and Refocus

DSC_001.JPEG-1

Well, I slept through yet another New Year. Hit the sack about 11 p.m. TV off. Spent the last hours of 2019 reading the last few chapters of Revelation with my family. Answered questions as best I could regarding all the wild symbolism of that Blessed Book of the Bible. Reminded ourselves of the main thing - Jesus wins! He reigns forever and ever and those who have been s...

Comparison - The Root of Many Sins

freely-68063

Recently, I was standing in the check out line at Walmart on a Sunday right after church (I know, I know.really). But here I was. And in front of me were two ladies practicing great patience and kindness with the cashier who was not really happy to be there. They had clearly just left church too. They were dressed in flowered skirts to their knees and their hair was neat a...

Vocabulary of Divorce

Practicing4Divorce

Preaching through James is proving to be a deeply convicting labor. Over the last two Sundays, we have delved into the sin of partiality, as James tackles it in Chapter Two, verses One Through Thirteen. Though he applies it directly to economic status (rich or poor), we had to explore ways in which we may knowingly or unknowingly commit this same sin in our church today. W...

Give Thanks

Onepixel_1320803

Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit(1 Thess 5:17-19). Brothers and Sisters in Christ, do not let Black Friday darken your Thanksgiving! During the sermon last Sunday, I mentioned the prayers of my Granddaddy McWhorter. My Dad used to recall from his childhood how his Dad...

Little Linda

200-1-1

My wife's mother, Linda, passed into the presence of Jesus on this day, Feb 6th, when my wife was only ten years old. But this is no sob story! My wife's maternal grandmother, Lucille, used to call her "Little Linda." Probably because Michele (my wife) looked like her mom. And probably, I assume, because Michele had echoes of Linda in her personality and mannerisms. And a...

Self-Esteem: The Big Fat Lie

Screen-Shot-2018-01-16-at-8.25.49-PM

Self-esteem=big fat lie. Do you want to know the truth? You have not been getting it from the psychology world or the secular counseling world for a very long time. In fact, I think we have never heard the truth from those worlds at all in the matter of self-esteem. We have, instead, as Christians, been buying into a lie that is eating into the fabric of who we really are ...

I am Woman

Screen-Shot-2017-12-14-at-10.00.32-AM-1

Let me confess right off the bat that womanhood is a mystery to me. I can honestly say that after 53 years of being a woman, I am still figuring it out. That being said, I do know a couple of things for sure and thought I would pass them on. We deal in a world that thinks what we FEEL is truth. Well, that is simply not so. Truth is absolute; like 2+2=4. Even if I wished it...
