Easter time is upon us. The big day is less than two weeks away. Each year, as Easter approaches, I wonder about Christians and their attitude toward Christianity. I have these thoughts because Easter makes Christianity an all-or-nothing proposition, and many claiming Christianity try to walk in the middle of the road. Allow me to … Continue reading Is Easter Important Or Meaningless?
What Is Truth?
As a child, I remember adults discussing how "politicians lie all the time." As a younger adult, I remember people saying, "Politicians will say anything to get elected." I have always been a news junkie, and as I have grown into my senior years, it is apparent that those in my younger years were correct. … Continue reading What Is Truth?
Fixing The Church
There are seven churches listed in Revelation chapters two and three. I believe that every church, in any place or time, can point at one of the seven churches and say, "There we are." In other words, every church holds the characteristics of one of the seven churches. If we look back at church history, … Continue reading Fixing The Church
The Next Full Moon
As I was up before sunrise this morning, I gazed at the full moon in the western sky - the last full moon of winter. I could not help but think of the next full moon, the first of the spring season marking the coming of Easter. My mind went back two thousand years and … Continue reading The Next Full Moon

Our problems include inflation, abortion, crime, mass shootings, health care, Chinese spy balloons, a general lack of trust, wildfires, hurricanes, the supply chain, an ever-increasing national debt, and the list goes on. Now that several problems … Continue reading The State Of The Union
A recent news event that may have prophetic implications is the announcement last month when Saudi Arabia's Finance Minister, Mohammad Al-Jadaan, said, "There are no issues with discussing how we settle our trade arrangements, whether it's in the U.S. dollar, the euro, or the Saudi riyal," Currently, OPEC only sells oil with American dollars. To … Continue reading Upheaval
Christian, are you blessed? Now sit back and think of why you answered "yes." Did you have any material things on your list? You know, things like your house, car, or funds in the bank. The sermon on the mount starts with what is commonly called the beatitudes. It is a list of people who … Continue reading Blessed
Faith and Truth
Eternal salvation comes through faith, by grace. Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." The Bible explains that everyone is a sinner, and the washing away of sin can only happen by the … Continue reading Faith and Truth
The End Never Comes
Last week Preacher's Point ended with the battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ. Most people believe Armageddon is the end of the world, but that is not the case. This universe we now live in will melt with fervent heat a little more than a thousand years after Armageddon (2 Peter 3:10-13). … Continue reading The End Never Comes
