Excuse Me, Sir, your Bias is Showing

Just when we thought the other side couldn't be more inconsistent with their positions, the Lord goes and tosses us in the seat of inquisition. And like the American General when the German tank commanders urged him to surrender at Bastogne, we say, "Nuts!" Consistency is a pesky little devil.

Where is Present Heaven?

Where did Jesus go when he ascended in the sky after his resurrection?  Acts 1:9 says, And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.” Jesus was in a physical body.

We often go to extremes to comfort ourselves while walking past the very things that will comfort us.

I'm not suggesting that every season of our lives will go "up and to the right" on the bar graph. Seasons of drought are inevitable.

What To Do About Your Death

tanding on the grassy spot where others will one day dig a hole and bury me was sobering.
