Spiritual Junk Food #4

The fourth instament of SPIRITUAL JUNK FOOD Junk Food: Every Christian must go back to his Jewish roots and begin keeping the holy days, feasts and festivals. I have seen this one divide churches – both denominational churches with a group called the British Israelites; as well as non-denominational churches where one leader began to […]

Spiritual Junk Food #3

It is amazing what we eat spiritually. What is more amazing is that with the steady diet of spiritual junk food – it is amazing we are still spiritually alive. Here is #3 you will hear – and I could name two or three very popular supposedly born again preachers on television who proclaim this […]

Time to Change What You Are Preaching

It is amazing what is being preached and proclaimed from the pulpit these days in North America – at least the ones I am aware of or in touch with on a regular basis. It is not greatly different in other nations where I either work (Ukraine) or have contacts. Afterall, they are all trying […]

Apostles Are Wise Master Builders

Paul writes: “(The Church is) built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” Ephesians 2:20 The word “build” means to construct, to assemble, to join together, to mold, to form, to create, and to erect … by following a master design or a blueprint. And, it […]

Come Alive

Maybe it is my age but I am concerned that the world end up being a better place for others due to the fact that I have been on the planet for a certain number of years. I don’t want to be known as a consumer – I want to be a contributor. I don’t […]

So What Is Under the Kilt?

Christianity has become a religion of activity, commotion and constant activity. Just read the lawn signs of those assemblies that have buildings and it is one event after another, one program after another, one guest speaker after another… I get tired just reading the signs. In some of my better moments I wonder what is […]

Darn, God Trusts Me!

I read a great number of Christian biographies – ones of men and women from by-gone centuries – D.L. Moody, Charles Finney, Smith Wigglesworth, Norman Grubb… I read a lot of Christian biographies of believers who are of our generation – Kirk Cameron, Johnny Cash, Jim Bakker, Charles Colson… I also admit to reading a […]

Are We Having Fun Yet?

It is not one of those “lazy, hazy days of summer.” It is a wet, stormy, power-interrupted and computer goes off constantly days! Relax – it is one of those “I don’t have any control over” issues of life. So, just go with the flow. Ah! Reading by candlelight. Thank God for everything – God, […]

Spiritual Junk Food #2

Second instalment regarding the junk food being fed Christians today from the pulpit – in the local Church and on your local television screen and DVD programming… Many preachers and teachers today are using their authority is a controlling and manipulative way. Apostles, prophets and pastors have declared that they have absolute authority. Iverna Tompkins, […]

Spiritual Junk Food #1

Everywhere we turn there is news about food. We have a tomato scare in the U.S.A. (now apparently Mexican peppers are the real culprit). We have concerns about the number of children who are not just overweight but who are obese. We can sign up to have meals come to our door and lose weight […]
