Epictetus on Wrestling

12 Nov., 2018 The “Golden Sayings”  of Epictetus, the first century Greek philosopher, were compiled by a contemporary philosopher and historian, Arrian.  Epictetus is the main authority on Stoic morals of which he gained an understanding probably from the lectures of C. Musonius Rufus. Of the 189 Sayings, many reference wrestling.  I am happy to […]

Baptismal modes

31 July, 2017 Dear Dale, I am offering you some thoughts regarding your “Baptism Sermon” as we might call it – on Sunday.   I enclose an essay I wrote a long time ago for my SS class at  a Lutheran Church;  nothing has changed since then.  I appreciate your continued faithfulness in preaching from the […]

The Biblical Optimist

10 Nov., 2018 The wicked have murdered their own progeny.  The righteous will rise and rule in their place.

The False God of Islam

9 Nov., 2018 As there is only one God, the Triune God of the Scriptures, revealed to the world in the second person of the Trinity, the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the god of Islam is a false God.  Islam denies Jesus as Lord and God and so denies the Truth.  Simple. Aasia Bibi […]

Ya Turn ’em Loose!

8 November, 2018 The message to our President regarding our anti-abortion prisoners of Christ must be:  “Ya turn ’em loose.” That scene in the film, “A Time to Kill,” based upon John Grisham’s novel by the same title comes strongly to mind.  There on the witness stand is the sheriff who was maimed by the […]

Sacred Sex and Secular Dope

6 Nov. 2018 Our laws reflect our backward American priorities when compared to those of the Scriptures.  One is the sacred, the other is not.  Yet the sacred is unprotected by the law, while the secular is fiercely regulated. The Scriptures speak against drunkenness, not drinking (nor smoking, or smoking dope).  Drinking and smoking are […]
